The holidays are here, and if you’re like me you’ve probably indulged on some oh-so-good but not-so-good-for-you treats. You can usually find me next the pecan pie where my “one more slice” can turn into the whole pie. The holidays are a time where food is front and center. We often stuff ourselves and over-indulge, usually thinking something along the lines of “I’ll start over in the new year.”
Looking for a way to get your body back to normal after all that holiday feasting? A juice cleanse might be just what you need.
A juice cleanse is a great way to help your body run smoothly. We constantly bombard our bodies with loads of toxins via chemical products, pollutants in the air and water, and with foods that aren’t so good us. We take our cars in for regular maintenance for tuneups and we should take the same amount of care with our bodies. Consider a juice cleanse a tune up for your body. By doing a juice cleanse, you will help your body run better, add more natural vitamins and minerals, look and feel younger, gain more energy, lose a few pounds, strengthen your immune systems (fewer colds and sick days), reduce inflammation, improve skin, hair and nails and so much more.
Still a little skeptical? I’ll share my experience on 3 days of juice with JuiceRX. Continue reading to find out how you can win a free 3 day juice cleanse by JuiceRX at www.juicerxcleanse.com .
At least twice a year I do a juice cleanse to reboot from eating those so bad but so tasty food. Recently I was feeling a little sluggish and I noticed I was lacking energy and craving more of the not so good for you food options. I realized it was time for a tuneup. For me, The best way to get my body and eating habits back on track is doing a juice cleanse.
Not all juice cleanse companies are the same. What I like about JuiceRX is that they’re 100% organic, they offer a variety of juice options and they’ll ship to your door (US only). Cold-pressed and truly raw, none of that pasteurization or hpp hype to extend shelf life. Made fresh daily with the highest amount of nutrients intact. What I also love is that the majority of their juices contains 9 servings of fruits and vegetables. With just one bottle you’re fullfilling your daily recommendations of fruits and veggies. You can read more about JuiceRX on a post I did last year —> https://www.greenjuiceaday.com/juicerx-review/
Before starting any cleanse it’s important to start eliminating stimulants like coffee, alcohol, sugar, dairy, fried foods, gluten (bread, flour etc) & red meat. Increase fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and water. You’ll want to do a few days before you start your juice cleanse because it will help your body ease into the cleanse and reduce any sort detox symptom.
What’s comes in the box?
The juices I received are from the regular cleanse (seasonally inspired), which consist of
1 – Spicy Lemonade
Ingredients: Purified Water, Lemon, Green Apple, Vermont Maple Syrup, Cayenne Pepper, Stevia
2 – Cranberry Cornucopia
Ingredients: Pineapple, Orange, Carrot, Cranberry, Red Beet, Saigon Cinnamon, Nutmeg
3 – Rejuva Root
Ingredients: Carrot, Apple, Beet, Zucchini, Celery, Lemon , Ginger
4 – Cucumber-Mint Electrolyte Boost
Ingredients: Cucumber, Green Apple, Celery, Lime, Mint
5 – Evening Green
Ingredients: Cucumber, Pear, Celery, Green Apple, Kale, Cilantro, Lemon
6 – Pumpkin Spice Milk
Ingredients: Purified Water, Carrot, Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Dates, Nutmeg, Ginger, Clove, Korintje Cinnamon, Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Stevia, Pinch of Sea Salt, Purified Water
So how’s the taste?
Let me first say that if you’re new to juicing don’t let ingredients like beets scare you away. I love juicing and I can honestly say that all the juices are delicious and are great for all levels of juicers.
One of the best lemonades I’ve ever had. Super tasty. Adding in the green apple and maple syrup were a great touch. The combination was just right. It was balanced and a great first drink of the day.
This one was a total surprise. I didn’t know what to expect but it reminded me of the Big Red gum I use to have as a kid. Pretty cool.
Easy to drink. The beets are not overpowering. Veggie based and loaded with all the good stuff your body needs.
Cucumber-Mint Electrolyte Boost
If it’s green count me in. You can’t go wrong with this combo. Refreshing and one of my favorites.
Very balancing drink. I felt very grounded when drinking this one. The cilantro is perfect, just the right amount.
Pumpkin Spice Milk
It’s like eating a slice of pumpkin pie.
How did You Feel?
The first day was easy. I did think about food, but didn’t have the urge to cheat.
Day 2 I had a slight headache. I realize I wasn’t drinking enough water. My headache went away shortly after. Make sure you’re drinking enough water. A good rule is to drink the same amount of water per juice you consume.
Day 3 I felt great. I felt lighter, lost a few pounds, refreshed, tons of energy and had restful sleep. As cheesy as it may sound, I felt renewed. The bad food cravings I had went away, my body wanted more healthier foods.
Did I miss eating? Of course, what I missed most was chewing and warming foods. If you’re doing a cleanse during the winter season, I’d recommend adding a warming tea or veggie broth in the evening if you find yourself missing warming foods.
Would I do it again? Absolutely. Its great having someone else make your juice. No clean up or additional time prepping produce.
One additional tip I’d recommend to help make your cleanse successful is to begin towards the end of the week. I started on Friday. The weekends tend to be less hectic and most of us have the weekends off. If you do experience any detox symptoms you can rest it off.

Doing a juice fast has been on my mind quite a lot lately! I'm excited that Juice Rx is nut free (a concern in my home), and I'd love to do this cleanse!
Kaitlyn Stoudemire says
All of these sounds yummy!!! I juice at home and would love a chance to try these!!
Tracey Word says
I would love to win this juice cleanse. I juice on a regular basis but I'm like you, I would love to have someone else juice for me.
Mariana Sabogal says
Why not? I love juicing! I have done it for 3, 5, 15 days. It is such a great way to reboot your system. The best part of it is the amazing benefits you get from it. And most important, sharing your story with others so they get to benefit from it as well. We are what we eat. We should be thankful for our body and health, and we should treat it and nourish it every single day. Mariam thanks for bringing a community together and sharing the love 🙂
Rulan Waikiki says
I have survived breast cancer, needing a brain tumor removed, then needing a complete hysterectomy all before age 45…that seemed like a lot for a while, but now that things are happening (i'll spare you all the details) like feeling my body just breaking down on me…so much unexplained pain all over my body, hair loss (not like chemo, but scary enough), I've been looking to get some real help and not from pills or shots anymore. I've juiced before but only a drink here and there…not to cleanse. I think my body is telling me enough is enough. A good health change is in order and starting with a healthy juice cleanse would hopefully get rid of some of the pains and help get me on a new lifestyle change of eating/drinking healthy for life…not just for now.
Bill Jennings says
I love juicing, and all the benefits that come from it, after I started juicing I could not wait to share my experience with everyone I knew. Juicing changed my energy, concentration, and just overall my self performance on every level.
Darin Pepper says
This is such a great gift for the holidays-the gift of a better feeling, healthier self! I have been juicing now for about a year and I love it. I am not always good with doing everyday though and in 2015 that is something I really want to commit to doing. I always feel so much better after having juiced. A juice cleanse is something I have wanted to try but haven't done one mostly due to the price tag attached to them. This would be a great way for me to ring in the new year and really clean out all those bad things that have accumulated on the inside! Thanks so much for partnering with JuiceRX to help provide this great health experience for one lucky person (hopefully me!!)
Tonya Stear-Robertson says
to begin my transformation goals for the new year
Melissa Gibson Dragovan says
suddenly I am about eight pounds too heavy. I would love to do a juice cleanse and get started I'm getting back to my normal weight. I love jjuicing but have not tried this plan
Uselyn Deary says
Have been drinking green smoothies for months. Never felt better
Lech'e Richard says
I'm 427 lbs I really need a jump start to get me going, I've tried everything medically and my last option is natural, I would really live to win this opportunity to kick it into gear before I'm just another statistic please!
Deanna Hengst Hostler says
I purchased an Omega juicer and started juicing back in the spring and do drink a green based juice almost every day. I just wanted to add the drink to my day, not in lieu of a meal. I recently purchased a Vitamix so I could occasionally have a smoothie instead of the juice. Because of the amount of produce necessary to make a drink everyday and the time commitment, the only way I'd do a fast is to win it. I am curious about how I'd feel afterwards… I do feel that the juicing has helped reduce my migraines and alleviates most of my allergy symptoms.
Christina ChristyLove Scoby says
I enjoy juicing and the benefits. I have only drank my homemade juices and would love to try these
Sara Bear says
I am writing my thesis on the healthy Juicing Lifestyle. It would be so wonderful to win a juice cleanse! Thank you for the opportunity! My Juicing Story: Juicing healed my life. Due to an accident, I was bed ridden for 18 months. Slowly over 2 years I gained the strength to move on my own and eventually stand up, sit down, shower, walk, ect. These basic activities caused great pain and look months to accomplish. When I found juicing this past year I was able to try a 30 day juice fast. During this time, I noticed a reduction in inflammation, weight loss, glowing skin, positive attitude, and resilience to daily pain. After juicing, I was finally able to return to college this semester. I am committed to writing my thesis on juicing because I want to spread the word and gather information about how juicing has helped others.
If you would like to participate in my thesis research here is the Anonymous Survey Link:

That would be an AWSOME "kick start" to get healthier and start losing weight for me
Shiralee Gosselin says
I have just begun juicing and have already seen improvement in my overall health and energy. I have not tried a cleanse, though. This sounds like a great place to start!
Jenn Kaufman says
I just saw "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". It was very inspirational in that doing a juice cleanse can have such profound affects. I have late stage Lyme Disease, daily migraines, ME and a host of co-infections because it literally took 15 YEARS, 6 states in every corner of the U.S. and Hawaii and more than 20 doctors (endocrinologists, rheumatologists, integrated, infectious disease to name a few) before I finally found my current doctor who literally saved my life. Not only did he diagnose the Lyme but, where 5 endocrinologists had failed, found my Adrenal levels severely low and mycoplasma pneumonia levels so high, he couldn't believe I was able to get out of bed at all. Now, after a year of treatment, I have come to a plateau. Doing a cleanse has been recommended several times by several doctors (the last X-ray of my torso showed my intestines are totally full) but I couldn't afford it and then I have lived with my in-laws for the past year who are all meat, starch, bread. I just moved today and now I can control what enters my kitchen and can finally use the juicer that's been in storage this whole time but I could really use help with starting my cleanse which I plan to do for 2-4 weeks, under medical supervision. I have not been able to work, play with my daughter (who got everything I have in vitro which I did not know was possible until a year ago), clean my home properly for 8 years. I literally feel polluted internally between my lack of digest ability, inability to absorb nutrients and inability to clear my GI tract. I know that having the jump start will make this entire lifestyle change much less stressful. My new home is in the country where I can have the peace of mind I need. I just need the peace of body too
What a great giveaway!! This will be my 2015 road to success!!! I retweeted with username leeannmahler. I also posted on my Pinterest Board, "Healthy Drinkables" under name sweetandsavory. I would love to add this to my health regime I'm starting. Thank you and Merry Christmas
Kathy Gamache Anderson says
After wondering why I was feeling so horrible, I had hair analysis, saliva test, many blood tests, etc. Diagnosis: severe, late stage adrenal fatigue. My organs have already begun to shut down. Nutrition and rest is paramount right now. I would absolutely cherish the gift of this cleanse. I believe it will help my body in ways that the doctors can't! I am planning on incorporating fresh juicing into my lifestyle (after I get back some energy to start juicing on my own). Many thanks! : )
Berchette Tabor says
I would love to win this cleanse because I have been slacking off on my healthy eating (and juicing!) for the last few months and I think this is something that would really help me get back on track!
Cynthia Hamilton says
