What’s a juice cleanse exactly? For some, a juice diet for a week can mean a juice fast, which entails a juice-only diet for three to seven days. Usually the fast includes a morning, lunch, and dinner juice with several “snack juices” in between. However, not all juice cleanses mean a week without food. Many opt instead to commit to three to seven days of juice supplemented by small, healthy meals high in protein and devoid of oil and fat.
The good news is, if you are curious about at home juice cleanse, you don’t have to spend a fortune to try a cleanse. All you need is an adventurous spirit and a juicer to get started!

At Home Juice Cleanse Quick Guidance
Here are some simple dos and don’ts for your first juice cleanse:
Do: Get ready to sweat. And urinate. Then repeat. The first day of your cleanse is particularly sweaty. Wear something sleeveless or start your cleanse on a day you don’t have to leave the house.
Dont: Forget to drink lots and lots of water. This seems silly because you’re already drinking all of that juice, but between the urinating and sweating, you’re gonna need all the hydration you can get.
Do: Use a juicer instead of a blender. A blender is going to make a gross mess that you are not going to want to drink. A juicer blends flavors of your fresh fruits and veggies, making them much more palatable for first timers.
Don’t: Torture yourself. If your head starts to swim and you’re finding it hard to concentrate, eat something! We’re not in a competition or an exercise in starvation, and you are not trying to survive in the desert. So you can calm down, and eat some of your carrots instead of juicing them.
So there you have it, all of the do’s and don’ts you need to know before embarking on a juicing journey. If you listen to them, chances are you’ll stay on the at home juice cleanse for longer than if you hadn’t!
