3 day cleanse to lose weight

Hello, I am an LA based trainer and I talk about all things healthy.  I took a blogcation, but am happy to be back writing for the site.

I am starting my first official 3-day cleanse.  I picked Fresh Pressed Juicery because they deliver to your house daily, making me feel at least that the juices are SUPER fresh.  I picked 3 days, because it was the shortest amount of time.  The nice thing is, if I am still hungry after drinking my six juices a day, then I am allowed to cheat by boiling broccoli and cauliflower and then drinking the water as a broth.  Thanks Fresh Pressed, you are really spoiling me.  I can drink that or my own urine.

I am on my 48th hour of no caffeine, and standing strong.  Even still, I have already messed up my pre cleanse routine by drinking a Mojito.  I thought about getting a soda water with a splash of cran.  I even pictured myself ordering that at the swank beachside hotel bar my family and I went to on Saturday, but then the word Mojito came out.


What am I so attached to? I expect in the coming days I will learn just that.  The real reason I wanted to try this cleanse was to figure out what I am not willing to let go of and why.  Is food more emotional than physical?  What do I expect from it?  What does it really give me?

I love to eat.  Goodbye food.  I will miss you.  Come back soon.

    It’s nice to have you writing again. I’m proud of you even though it’s going to totally screw up our date night :)

    I love that you already cheated. Shows you are human. :) Just looking at the juices makes me want to throw up. I am glad you are back writing for TNF. Now onto spring and summer tips for getting into those bathing suits.

    so you don’t want me to bring you a cinnamon roll from little flower ?
    or will that be your reward for cleansing ?

    What color was your pee today ?!
    Could you write more about that ?

    I second Madge about looking at the juices….
