Let me start by saying that I’m not a huge fan of cleansing, at least not in the ‘miracle product’ or ‘depravation’ cleansing in the traditional way. I will try anything twice, but I’d like to think I have enough sense to know that grapefruit with cayenne pepper will do nothing to benefit your body or your soul and, while I respect those that dig colonics, pooping through a tube in front of a stranger is not the shit I’m into…no pun intended. That being said, I totally get the desire to cleanse – and while I’m not usually a fan of paying for something that a week of eating plant-based and/or raw can accomplish, I am totally a fan of fresh starts. Putting down some cash for a cleanse meant I now have skin in the game, and just the thought of opening a box containing products that promise to “cleanse the body to promote optimal beauty and improved general health” filled my entire being with a warming joy that only blind optimism, falling in love, and the first bite of a late night drunk taco can provide.
Endorse is not a strong enough word for how I feel about Rawjuvenate. For reals you guys, this stuff is life changing. I had no idea what to expect, but this was my experiences during that first month:
- As a person who already has a smoothie for breakfast each morning, I literally didn’t have to change anything else in my diet. No limiting myself, no starving or writing down food or reporting to a website or ingesting weird concoctions. Just add the protein and greens to the smoothie and take pills once a day. *I’m sure if your eating straight up junk, processed foods, or too much of anything that results may vary. I eat around 1200-1600 calories a day mainly of plant-based food and drink in moderation 1-2 days a week
- Within days I felt lighter – and that’s probably because I was going to the bathroom within an hour after every meal. That may sound inconvenient or scary, but it didn’t feel like an unusual experience, more like I was just digesting my food more efficiently with the help of the plant-based fiber in the system.
- I slept like a baby within a week of using the program and woke up refreshed. I would only caution to eat lighter dinners or eat early when possible because that digestion is happening folks and it will wake you up to get the doings done. Same thing with exercise – be prepared to run what I affectionately call a ‘poop loop’ if you’re going out for a long run. A “poop loop” is a route looping back to a bathroom sanctuary to accommodate movement. Seriously though guys, this isn’t like taking a laxative – it’s controllable.
- I lost 2 pounds a week and the lightness helped me feel energized and feeling energized helped me to get motivated to be better and accomplish more and accomplishing more gave me energy…you see the cycle.
I’m so happy taking this I can’t recommend enough that everyone gives it a shot. After the first month I contacted the company, Raw Green Organics, to see if it’s healthy to continue taking it. Of course consult a doctor with real questions or concerns, but they did share that since it’s a product made entirely of plants that it’s totally healthy to take on a continuous basis if desired (they recommend once every 3 months). If you have specific questions don’t hesitate to reach out and we would love to hear your thoughts and experiences if you give it a shot. Happy cleansing! (who knew there was such a thing?)
