The Do’s and Don’ts of a Juice Cleanse

It's important to choose a science-based program for your juice cleanse.


While it’s become something of a fad among celebrities and Instagram bloggers, a juice cleanse can have a powerful impact when done properly. An effective detox through the form of a nourishing juice cleanse can decrease damage to cells, improve the health of your organs and aid in digestion. It can also boost weight loss efforts and help fight back against cravings. With so many options out there today, it’s important to be able to tell the good from the bad.

Consider these do’s and don’ts before starting a juice cleanse:

When considering a juice cleanse, you do want to be ready. The Hallelujah Diet Perfect Cleanse, for example, is a short-term restrictive diet. However, it’s not one that will zap you of all of your energy so that everyday tasks become hard to complete. When you select a program that is easy to follow and that’s shown proven success, you can reap all of the benefits of a cleanse.

  • Do your research before selecting a cleanse, The Chalkboard Magazine explained.
  • Do select a juice cleanse that will continue to keep you active and energized, like The Perfect Cleanse.
  • Do choose one that’s simple and easy to complete, such as a five-day cleanse.
  • Do opt for a juice cleanse with enough fiber so that toxins are not reabsorbed into the body.
  • Do find a cleanse that triggers autophagy so that your damaged cells are reused for protein and energy.
Select a nutrition-rich juice cleanse that will keep you going throughout the day.Select a nutrition-rich juice cleanse that will keep you going throughout the day.

When you’re first starting out on your quest to find the right cleanse, it’s important that you don’t get caught up in the hype of the trends. As Health magazine explained, picking a cleanse based on the latest fad often results in extreme hunger, which can then translate to mood swings, irritability, constipation and fatigue.

  • Don’t take part in a juice cleanse if you’re on oral diabetic drugs or insulin as it could dangerously interfere with blood sugar levels.
  • Don’t select a cleanse with any artificial flavorings, preservatives or added sugars.
  • Don’t opt for a cleanse that doesn’t offer premium organic ingredients.
  • Don’t choose a juice cleanse that doesn’t follow a science-based program.
  • Don’t stay up late on the cleanse: The body detoxifies and heals most effectively between 9 p.m. and midnight, according to The Chalkboard Magazine.

If you’re looking for the right juice cleanse, look no further than The Perfect Cleanse, a complete, science-based program with proven results.

    Is it normal to have explosive diarrhea after doing a juice cleanse? I stopped the cleanse a few months ago but ever since I’ve had diarrhea at least once a week. It’s not just a little either, I’ve had a few business meetings where I’ve actually soiled my pants and had to cancel or leave. It’s really embarrassing. Do you have any tips for me? I really enjoyed the cleanse and want to start it again. But I am the laughing stock of all my associates right now.

      Hi George, A co-worker used to get diarrhea when he drank fresh carrot juice. Even when he ate like normal, if he drank carrot juice, he got diarrhea.
      What did you drink on your juice cleanse and how long did you do it? Did you have problems with diarrhea before you did the cleanse?

  7. George Dunham March 20, 2020

    thanks Melody Hord. It was mostly based on carrots, beets, pineapple juice, ground up vitamin tablets, spirulina, spinach, green tea, burdock root, thistle, bermuda grass, nettle, apples and some others. I do tend to have diarrhea frequently, especially under stress. I also eat a lot of carrots, maybe that’s related. I can usually hold it until after a meeting. The juice cleanse changed that for the worse. I did lose 8 pounds in a week. When it was all over, I also ended up with a bad rash down there, kind of red and scaly. It went away after three weeks. I thought it might be the nettle.

      Here is what Olin Idol, the HD VP of Health said:
      The juice cleanse may have been a little too harsh for someone with a tendency toward a loose bowel.
      Adding some organic psyllium on a daily basis ( even twice daily if needed) will often help calm a loose bowel. Might be good to use along with the next cleanse to help keep the bowel in check.

    This was some good information when you are wanting to do a juice fast. I love when I make the green juice, Thanks

  9. That is a good reminder– Don’t stay up too late at night: The body detoxifies and heals most effectively between 9:00 p.m. and midnight.

    It is easy to fall into the bad habit of staying up too late.

    I appreciate this information about the body healing between 9:00 pm and midnight.
