Book’s Description:

 
Celebrities, foodies and media people rely on the Blueprint Cleanse for relief from the excess, overindulgence and toxins we are all exposed to every day. Now, the founders of the cleanse praised in Elle, Vogue and Every Day with Rachel Ray, offer THE 3-DAY CLEANSE, an at-home juice cleansing program for everyone. Cleansing allows the digestive system to rid itself of the toxins everyone accumulates from unhealthy eating or from the environment. This is a customized program based on your own personal health and lifestyle. Unlike other programmes the Blueprint Cleanse includes enough calories and natural fats for an easier yet incredibly effective cleanse. This books guides readers through step-by-step guidelines for a 1-day, 3-day and 14-day cleanse, as well as a long-term maintenance plan. There are sidebars with quick tips, secrets and advice from people who have done the cleanse and in addition to the juice, raw and part-raw recipes the authors include advice on battling the urge to cheat and working the cleanse into a busy lifestyle. It will boost your immune system, alleviate allergies and PMS, improve your mood and sex drive and clear up your skin. Finally.

My Review:

The word cleanse sends shivers down my spine because it sounds like an act that will be unpleasant, hard, and eating disgusting foods. When I picked up The 3-Day Cleanse, I was not sure what to expect. The BluePrintCleanse is easy enough and totally doable. You can start out at a 1-Day cleanse and work your way up to a longer term cleanse. There are instructions and recipes to help you along your way. There is a symptom chart in the book so that while you are participating in the cleanse you know what is normal and what is not. It helps you know whether you are feeling the right way and why you might be feeling that way.

I understand the basic need for the cleanse and all about the bad toxins that go into your body. I have heard the cleanse had worked wonders on a lot of people. I personally am not going to do it right because it would be hard to manage with being on the run all the time and taking care of two babies all day long. I am not sure I am willing to give up my coffee for it. I’d want a couple days of down time while I’d try this but I know I am not getting that right now.
