Pressed Juicery 3-Day Cleanse Review & Experience

Pressed Juicery 3-Day Cleanse Review & Experience

So if you follow my Instagram stories (which you should!), then you know last week I did the Pressed Juicery 3-Day Cleanse.  I was in Chicago a week prior and consumed so much junk
food.  While I had the best time, I came back home feeling sluggish, heavy, tired, and extremely bloated.  I wanted to get back to myself as soon as possible. I looked into a couple of cleanses before deciding on Pressed Juicery’s 3-Day Cleanse.  I took a poll on my Instagram stories and turns out people wanted me to document my experience. So without further ado, here you go. Or you can scroll all the way to the bottom to watch my video diary of the 3-day cleanse on YouTube.

What Does The Cleanse Consist Of

The Pressed Juicery 3-Day cleanse comes with 6 juices and 2 waters per day.  You are to drink 1 of the juices every 2 hours and drink 8 oz of water in between the juices.  One of the waters included in the cleanse is a Chlorophyll water that you are to drink throughout the day.  The other water is an Aloe Vera water that you drink each night before bed; it’s supposed to “get you moving”.  Below is each drink and the ingredients of that drink. I also included my schedule for the 3 days, although sometimes, life happened and my schedule was a little off.

2.  Greens 2 - kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon

My Personal Experience.  Did I Struggle?

I’m not going to lie, day 1 was a bit rough.  I remember halfway through my very first drink thinking “I’m not going to make it through this cleanse”.  I was so hungry and it just
didn’t seem like the hunger was going away! After finishing the drink and drinking water I was okay; not full, but okay.  By noon I was feeling a bit lightheaded and dizzy. I was really getting nervous at this point and asking myself what did I get myself into. I’ve done a 3-day detox before and ended up extending it to 5 days but I guess I just didn’t remember how much of a struggle it is on the first day.

I survived work and stopped by Trader Joe's to pick up a bag of raw almonds.  When I got home I had the remainder of my drinks per my schedule above and about a handful of almonds.  I felt better and an extreme amount of energy; even more than I usually would have. Day 2 and 3 of the cleanse were a breeze.  I felt amazing and back to my old self.

What To Do If You Get Hungry

Really try to just stick to the juices and water but please listen to your body. If you need to eat you can have raw almonds or fruits and raw vegetables that are ingredients of the juices.  But before you do that, try drinking a cup of water. You get a juice every 2 hours so by the time the hunger is almost unbearable it’s time to have another juice.

What To Do After The Cleanse

After the cleanse is over you want to ease your way back into eating solid foods.  Trust me on this one. The day after my cleanse I had fruits and vegetables. For dinner, I had a salad and I had pretty bad stomach cramps that night.  Below is a food list from VeryWellFit.com that you can use to help ease back into having solid foods.

Here is an example of how to end a cleanse:

Day 1

Have three small meals based on the following foods:

  • Fresh vegetables, such as salads, celery or carrot sticks, vegetable soup, or steamed vegetables

  • Fresh fruit

  • Nuts

  • Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, herbs, and spices to add flavor.

Day 2

  • Brown rice or quinoa

  • Vegetables, fresh or steamed

  • Starchy vegetables such as sweet potato

  • Fruit

  • Nuts

  • Beans or legumes

  • Extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, herbs, and spices to add flavor.

Day 3

From day 3 on, you can slowly reintroduce dairy if you wish.

  • Brown rice or quinoa

  • Vegetables

  • Fruit

  • Nuts

  • Beans or legumes

  • Small amounts of plant oils

  • Organic yogurt, unflavored and unsweetened

  • Eggs

Day 4

From day 4 on, you can slowly introduce meat, poultry, or fish if you wish.

  • Brown rice or quinoa

  • Vegetables

  • Fruit

  • Nuts

  • Beans or legumes

  • Small amounts of plant oils

  • Tofu or edamame

  • Organic yogurt, unflavored and unsweetened

  • Eggs

  • Meat, chicken, fish, if eaten.

Day 5

Other foods, as desired.

The Results – Would I Do It Again?

Although I struggled through most of day 1, by that evening I was feeling great!  Day 2 and 3 were a breeze. I lost 4 pounds and 1” in my waist (but remember I was very bloated when I started the cleanse).  I most certainly would do a 3-day cleanse again. In fact, I’m actually thinking about doing it quarterly. Is this something you would try?  Feel free to ask me any questions in the comment section of my YouTube video or DM me on Instagram (@arteresalynn).
