Juice FAQ’s

Can I work out while on the plan? 2017-06-13T15:22:29+00:00

Yes, working out is fine. If you require additional calories to get through your workout, we recommend a ‘spicy lemonade.’ Unpasteurized honey (for calories), organic lemons, cayenne pepper (or cinnamon), and water.

 

 

Do I drink water on the plan? 2017-06-13T15:22:09+00:00

Yes, as the toxins are flushed out of your system, so will water. You will need to hydrate more than normal while on the cleanse. We recommend 8-10 glasses of water a day, and definitely 1 glass of water first thing when you wake up.

Will I lose muscle while on the plan? 2017-06-13T15:21:48+00:00

Significant muscle atrophy only occurs when you couple a deficit in protein for an extended amount of time with inactivity and lack of exercise. A 7-day cleanse will not cause a significant amount of muscle atrophy. Athletes or individuals undergoing an intense physical training regime can introduce a second meal of plant-based proteins (stay away from dairy [whey]) if necessary.

Do people with a higher BMR be under-nourished? 2017-06-13T15:21:30+00:00

Those with a higher BMR will be on a higher calorie deficit, but nutrition is ample for most people. High performance athletes or those with specific and strict dietary needs will have to consult with their nutritionist or physician first.

How many calories are in your juices? 2017-06-13T15:21:10+00:00

Our juices are 180-220 calories each.

Why have the meals at night? 2017-06-13T15:20:51+00:00

Solid foods take considerably longer to digest and go through your digestive tract. If you have them after your juices while on the cleansing plans, it ensures your meal won’t interfere with the cleansing process. The goal is always to keep your digestive tract as clear as it can be for the duration of the cleanse.

Do I need to mix them with anything or dilute with water? 2017-06-13T15:20:29+00:00

Our cold-pressed juices don’t need to be mixed with anything. Open and enjoy.

Are your juices all organic? 2017-06-13T15:20:06+00:00

We use a mix of organic, hydroponic, and local ingredients in our juices. Local ingredients are much more nutrient dense than imported organic ingredients, as the produce is picked only after the nutrients have had ample time to ripen and mature. Imported ingredients are picked before maturity to allow for transit time, and this causes the produce to have less nutrients.

It’s expensive! 2017-06-13T15:19:49+00:00

Our juices are all a combination of 6 or more vegetable and fruit ingredients. We use a combination of organic, hydroponic, and local produce to ensure maximum cleanliness and nutrient density. We also use glass bottles, and we never artificially extend our shelf life through pasteurization or chemicals. Our goal is to make healthy choices affordable at all. As a quick and ‘fast consumable,’ we find ourselves much better priced than most of the ‘fast foods’ you will find on the market today. And the health benefits and nutrition levels don’t come close.

Is this just a health fad? 2017-06-13T15:19:20+00:00

This isn’t a fad. Juicing is a vehicle for your body to obtain nutrition from fruits and vegetables in a quick and efficient manner. If you already eat ‘clean,’ juicing will supplement your diet to ensure you cover all your plant-based nutritional needs. We take the guesswork and the time involved in making sure you consumer all the essential and varied sources of nutrients. 

Is it sustainable to just keep juicing? 2017-06-13T15:19:03+00:00

Juicing does not have to be a meal replacement, nor do we recommend it to be. It is meant to be integrated into your lifestyle, as a supplement to a healthy and balanced diet revolving around unprocessed whole foods. It is a quick and efficient way for your body to consume a large amount of fruits and vegetables.

What happens if I just revert to my old ways after? 2017-06-13T15:18:44+00:00

As a worse-case scenario, you revert to your old eating habits. Your body will still have had a reprieve granted by the juice cleanse. You will still have reset your digestive tract to be more efficient, topped your body off with nutrients, and increased your energy levels and metabolism. Fixing up your house before a storm still has its benefits.

Is it just a quick fix? 2017-06-13T15:18:20+00:00

This is not a quick fix for anything. Juicing is an efficient way to consume a large amount of plant-based nutrition, with optimal absorption by your body. We promote healthy lifestyle changes, not quick fixes.

Cold-Pressed Juices Information 2017-06-13T15:16:57+00:00

We use a Cold-Press method to make our juices. This method uses hydraulic pressure to extract liquid from plants without breaking down nutrients or enzymes. Many home and commercial juicers use a Centrifugal Juicer, which although many times faster, relies on a spinning blade which both heats and oxidizes nutrients, minerals, and enzymes. In short, Cold-Press juices are the most nutrient dense juices, packed with vitamins, minerals, and natural enzymes.

Is there a lot of sugar? 2017-06-13T15:16:33+00:00

Processed and pasteurized juices give fruit juices a bad rap. They contain little to none of the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables in them, but all of the sugar. That is definitely bad, yes. That is not the case with our cold-pressed juices. The naturally occurring sugars in the juices coaxed from our hydraulic presses contain all the live enzymes, vitamins, and trace minerals that you would get as if actually consuming the fruits and vegetables. The juices are designed to be 250ml in order to contain more than ample nutrition, with as little sugar as possible. To put things into perspective, drinking our juice that contains the most amount of fruit — the Antioxidant Blast — is the equivalent of having 4-5 raspberries, 1/4 of a grapefruit, 1/3 of an apple, and 1/3 of an orange. And that is definitely not too much sugar for you.
