All day long today, I’ve been researching juice cleanses.
Don’t get me wrong, it was strictly for work. It wouldn’t even occur to me to voluntarily give up food and
drink coffee so I can rid my body of toxins. Toxins, mind you, that shall reenter the minute the cleanse is done and I go back to good ol’ meat, carbs and caffeinated drinks.
>>I tried giving up coffee once, in college. It was bad.<<
But now I’ve wizened up on the health benefits of kale — did you know just a cup of the stuff has a smashing 1,328% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin K and 354% the RDA of Vitamin A? — and I’m thinking of trying a juice cleanse next year.
The shortest juice cleanse is only three days and can be done (in the case of a serial long-distance racer) during an in-between races period. Don’t quote me on that, I just made it up.
Say, theoretically, a runner finishes a marathon, gives herself a few days to recharge the
batteries fatty cells and liver, then does the cleansing stuff for three days. Goes back to normal; runs scheduled half marathon two weeks after that. Sounds like an OK plan to me. Yes?
–> Must research juice cleanses between now and March 17. <-- Have you ever done a juice cleanse? How’d it go? Where did you get the juice?
