ONE DAY DIY JUICE DAY – Or how to kick your healthy eating habits

DIY JUICE DAY For Beginners

Juice Day is a day (or two) that you are going to ingest nutrients in liquid form, while still nourishing your body and letting your organs function at its best. If it is your first time is it a good idea that you take the day easy and while you prepare for it (shopping a few days before for instance) make sure you drink lots of water. As a rule of thumb we should drink no less than 2 L a day. If you want a more accurate calculation you can go to: https://www.camelbak.com/en/hydrated/hydration-calculator

This “plan” can be used almost by anyone, however, if you have diabetes or low blood sugar levels this is not for you. Also, if you are taking “water pills” you may find having to make more than usual trips to the washroom.

If at any point you feel dizzy or unable to focus, add small portions of clean solid food (1-2 tbsps hummus, 1-2 crackers for example). If it doesn’t get better slowly keep incorporating solids until you do and leave this plan for a later time.
