Well, with a cleanse you’re eating very little, so I don’t see how it wouldn’t work.  I know you don’t want to hear this, but the touted “health benefits” of cleanses “detoxifying”‘s a bunch of quackery.  While the juices themselves are healthy, you’re losing weight because you’re not eating much. You’ll probably feel pretty crappy and angry a good chunk of the time.  Also, diets like that make losing weight harder down the line.

I’ve done blue print a few times. I like it. I recommend the lowest level, there’s more variety. 3 days is pretty easy, 4 is difficult and 5 or more seems to be my breaking point.

It can be pricey, but they have bridal discounts. The juices themselves are pretty good. It took me some time to warm up to the green juice, but it happened.

 

Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to know!

I read up on them a while ago.  The best way to do it is to get a juicer, and juice your own fruits and vegetables.  The reason for that is because juice you buy at a store has been pasteurized, so the parts that make the juice so healthy have been killed (according to a few articles I read).  

If you want to flatten your stomach before your wedding, I’d just seriously restrict the amount of calories you eat each day, and eat very slowly.  Are you working the days before?

I had good results from a 3-day cleanse through BPC, but I regained the weight very quickly.  Also, it made me super cranky and irritable.  I don’t think I could handle it on top of wedding-related stress!

I’m planning to cut out alcohol and meals out for 2-4 weeks before the wedding to lose the bloat.

@jouissance:  From all the reading I did, it seems that there’s no point in doing a juice “cleanse” without a juicer…which sucks, because they’re expensive and take up space.

@jouissance:  That’s another thing I was looking at.  It doesn’t seem worth it, right?  Do the places you mentioned offer vegetable juices?

@jouissance:  Yeah…that doesn’t sound like a good trade off.  Stupid weight and calories.
