Clean It Up!

I've been planning to do a juice cleanse for a LONG time.. 
In the past couple of months, I have found numerous reasons for putting it off,
but at the end of the day,
the benefits outweighed my fears (of starvation, obviously).
Last week, I finally committed to consume nothing but juice for two whole days.
If you've detoxed before,
you're probably reading this and thinking:
"Wimp. Two days? That's nothing!"
Maybe you're right,
but for a virgin cleanser like myself,
two days sounded like a mighty long time. 

Choosing the right program was tough..
there are so many cleanses out there, 
and it's easy to get overwhelmed. 
I knew I couldn't survive on water with lemon and cayenne pepper alone, 
forget about it. 
I wanted something wholesome and nutritious,
and that's when I came across Nekter Juice Bar.

The Nekter Cleanse is different from fasting;
it provides enough nutrients with limited calories.
The drink formulas are specifically designed to rid your body of toxic buildup in the organs, digestive tract and even in the skin. 
I can't say that it's the best-tasting formula I've ever consumed,
but I'll tell you one thing,
those juices sure keep you full! 
You're supposed to consume a 16 oz. bottle every two hours or so,
and I could barely get through five bottles each day! 
The last drink of the day was my favorite -
if you like cashews, I'm sure it will be your favorite too. 
What can you expect as far as results?
Well... I did lose three pounds in two days,
and my skin does seem brighter this week. 
I can't say that you will react the same way as me,
because obviously everyone's body is so different.
However, I do feel healthier,
and whether that's true, or if it's all in my head,
I don't really care. 
At the end, all that matters is how you feel, right?
And I feel great! 

Have you ever tried a cleanse before?
Is there a specific brand you recommend?


P.S. I'm currently in Miami,
so I apologize for the lack of posts. 
I promise lots of fun photos upon my return!
In the meantime, you can keep up with my adventures through my Instagram.
