Whilst we don’t focus on Sol Cleanse as a quick fix for losing weight, there is no doubt that this is a goal for many of our cleansers, and there are more ways than one that doing a juice cleanse can help with weight loss.
How juice cleansing helps with weight loss
1. On a fundamental level, you have the calorie in, calorie out equation. When people do a juice cleanse, their calorie intake is usually drastically reduced for the days that they are doing the cleanse because their nutrition is pre determined and they don’t stray with calorie dense foods. Typically people lose up to 1kg per day cleansing, depending on their predisposition. Now, what you need to remember is that this isn’t entirely sustainable. Obviously, as soon as you start eating again your weight will start creeping up again, the thing that you DO have some control over is HOW MUCH it creeps up. Our aim is to rehabilitate your relationship with living a healthful, mindful lifestyle. After your cleanse it should be quite manageable to keep half of what you lost off. For example, if you did a 5 day cleanse and lost 5kg, if you are conscious after your cleanse you should be able to maintain a weight loss of 2.5kg off your original weight.
2. A more sustainable and powerful contribution of cleansing for long term weight loss is the fact that when you cleanse your organs and body systems will rid themselves of toxins, repair, and return to operating optimally (please remember you may need to cleanse for longer periods of time for optimum results). When your organs are operating as they should, all other efforts for losing weight will become more effective, and your body will regain a natural equilibrium at a comfortable and natural weight for you.
3. When you cleanse, your body is returned to a more natural state. Your tastebuds become finer tuned to the taste of “real” food – so you will naturally crave food that is better for you. People often also find that they can kick cravings for sugar and junk food, so when they come off their cleanse they find it easier to follow a healthy diet without these cravings.
The bigger picture – sustainable results
The real key here is that cleansing makes healthy lifestyles easier post cleanse, because you actually feel better, and feel like eating more healthful food. Rather than forcing and fighting with yourself to follow a particular diet or meal plan you become naturally motivated to make choices that will better serve you.
