@TwoStatesBride:  If it’s really water bloat, have you tried taking pills or tea that’s meant to help with that? Might be a lot cheaper!

I haven’t done blueprint, but it seems PRICEY. I have done a juice cleanse on my own, and supplemented with Suja juices that I got at Whole Foods and also juice from juice bars etc. I think Suja might be slightly cheaper than blue print.

I’ve done the Blueprint Cleanse a few times and will be doing it at least 1 more time before the wedding. I absolutely love it! It definitely gets rid of the bloat and makes me feel lighter, have more energy and my skin always looks great afterward!

I don’t know if you have fresh direct where you live, but it ends up being about $25 cheaper if you order through them.

I usually do the Foundation. The first time, I did Renovation, but I like Foundation much more – the additional green juice keeps you fuller throughout the day and I really hate the taste of the CAB juice.

How about just eliminating sugar, grains, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, all junk etc? Much cheaper, healthy, and effective!

@TwoStatesBride:  Suja is a LOT like Blueprint, check out their website I think they have plans just like Blueprint that tell you how many/what to drink a day etc. And I know they are about $3 cheaper a bottle at my WF compared to BP.

That seems really pricey!  If you have the money to spare I say go for it but if your on a budget I would cut all grains, dairy, and anything that can make you bloated.  Also drink a ton of water, oddly enough it’ll help you lose water weight.  You can try a dandelion root pill also (sold at whole foods) and that’ll help.

@TwoStatesBride:  try cutting it out completely. For a lot of people, cutting those things out completely is much more effective than mostly. Make sure you’re not eating gluten, as many people are sensitive to it and it causes bloat.

I wouldn’t pay to off water weight. Drink lots of water, avoid soda and caffiene, salt and carbs.

I am very wary of anything that claims to be a “cleanse.” I have a perfectly functioning liver and kidneys for that job.

@TwoStatesBride:  yes adding juice to a clean diet is good, but if you do, be careful not to juice fruit really because fruits are so sugary and when you remove the fiber from fruit by juicing, it’s basically pure sugar. Juicing vegetables is much better. Carrots add sweetness to make it palatable. 

And I must say, 3 day juice cleanses won’t reset anything. It needs to be a lifestyle change, as replenishing nutrients isn’t a quick thing that can be accomplished in 3 days. But adding more vegetables either whole or in juice is a good addition.

@TwoStatesBride:  ….> @BlondeMissMolly:  pretty much said exactly what I was going to on the “juice cleanse” fad. A few days isn’t going to do anything, and fruit are naturally high in sugars so removing the fiber will basically turn it into fruit flavored sugar water. Pure nutrients for three days =/= doing anything healthy for your body.

Edit: Rogue S made me sound derp.
