Get ready, get set…get JUICY!

WUWT - Juicy for Jump Up

Whether you’re chipping down the road at Carnival, or walking and running down the road on the regular, this collective health experience might be for you! Join We RUN Tings to Get Juicy for Jump-Up!

It has been said that a short juice detox has a whole lot of benefits — boosting energy, healing the body, releasing toxins, losing weight, and flooding our body with nutrients! That’s all good but it can be hard to go it alone. So We RUN Tings invites you to join us for our first group juice detox. For a full five days, wherever you are, we’re in this together.

The Plan? Fresh raw (fruit and vegetable) juice three times a day, supplemented by lots of water and clear tea with no sweeteners. NO SOLID FOOD. It sounds scary but trust us, it can be done! We’ll need commitment. We’ll need willpower. And most importantly, we’ll need eachother. Tell a friend!

We’ll post great recipes and lots of tips to support the process. We encourage you to ask questions, tell us about your progress, and share your ideas with the rest of the group. If you’ve done this before, bring your wisdom! We’ll need it.

If it’s convenient and cost-effective, you can buy juices from a juice boutique. We also encourage you to make your own juices at home. Bust out that blender and get jamming with your juicer! Let all that juicy creativity shine through.

“This is not about getting skinny. This is about getting started.” — Kija Gray

NOTE: Before starting a juice detox, please check with your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, underweight, diabetic, or if you have have heart disease, low blood pressure, or any life-threatening health challenge.

The Real Skinny on The Juice Cleanse

It’s almost Summer! And everyone wants to shed their winter coats – also known as the extra 10 to 15 pounds they put on between Halloween and New Year’s. Well, juice cleanses or detoxes are all the rage. Those who are true to the juicing game are all about detoxes because we know they work.

raw-juicePersonally, I have been a believer for over 10 years. Before the juice cleanse was popular, I learned about holistic healing from juicing gurus like Joel Furman and old school Jack Lalane. They swore by the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and incorporated natural, raw juice into their diets. Myself, I used juicing to heal my body from hormonal imbalance and fibroids. Then I experienced the added bonus of (yes!) weight loss.

We all want to look good and feel great in our jeans, our Carnival costumes, or our own skin. The quickest way to get there is to start a juice cleanse. A detox of 3 to 7 days or more will reboot your metabolism and get you those results in the waistline.

What are the other benefits? There are many! For example, improvement in:

  • chronic fatigue
  • loss of concentration
  • poor memory
  • weight gain
  • leaky gut
  • poor digestion
  • gas and bloating
  • skin problems
  • chronic pain

So, even if you think detox or cleansing your body with juicing is just an unnecessary fad, give it a try! You can join a group cleanse with We RUN Tings and GO Press Juice. We’ll be posting juice recipes and great tips. Let’s get healthy and get ready for summer fun together!
