My Review: 1 Day Juice Cleanse from Pressed Juicery

juice

While walking around Larchmont with my friends on Sunday. I had the spontaneous and brilliant idea to do a 1-day Juice Cleanse. We walked into Pressed Juicery and I was able to easily convince my friend Brigitte to join me on this journey. For $40 you get 6 juices, and 2 waters to drink throughout the day. We purchased the cleanse and were excited to get started Monday morning.

10 AM: I start my first juice: Vanilla Almond. Taste 10/10. I’m already starving but I’m trying my best not to gulp down this juice so fast. It tastes like a vanilla milkshake in the best way possible. I’m a big breakfast person, so not going to lie I’m still pretty hungry.

12:05 PM: Like clockwork my body hits noon and I’m automatically hungry for lunch. I’m like Cinderella when the clock strikes twelve except for having a curfew, I just get hungry. Time for my second juice: Greens 2. Taste 10/10. For a green juice this is surprisingly tasty. The apple and lemon really help balance out the bitter greens.

12:50 PM: I’m still sipping on my second green juice. I’m starting to get a slight hunger headache.

2 PM: Drink #3: Citrus 2. Taste 10/10. This is such a refreshing drink! It’s a citrus with mint which is perfect for an afternoon pick me up. So far, this Citrus drink is my favorite. I’ve also started drinking my Chlorophyll Water, which doesn’t taste like much.

2:30 PM: I’m starting to be bored with all the liquids. Wishing I could eat some solid food right about now.

4:45 PM: I started my 4th drink: Roots 2. Taste 7/10. This one wasn’t my favorite. It was kind of a filler drink.

5:30 PM: My roommate wanted to walk and get oysters for Happy Hour. I agreed to go with her on her walk and took my juice with me. I ate one fried oyster because I couldn’t resist. I wanted more but I stopped myself.

7 PM: I’m starving. Time for my 5th drink: Greens 3. Taste 8/10. This definitely tastes a little more “green” than the green juice from this morning. I’m so tired of drinking juice at this point. I would kill for some mac and cheese, or Chinese. Also, I have a headache. Like a tension headache but I’m tense because I haven’t eaten solid foods all day. But, I’ve committed thus far so might as well just go the distance.

7:50 PM: Help. I’m so hungry. I’m also over this green juice and throw it out with about a third left.

8:05 PM: I’m caving and eating a string cheese. No shame.

8:10 PM: Last juice of the day: Chocolate Almond. Taste 10/10. This is the bomb.com. Kind of tastes like a dessert.

9 PM: I’m officially done with all my juices and all I have left is the Aloe Vera Water. I might save half of it for tomorrow because I don’t think I can consume any more liquid.

11 PM: I’m actually starving. If I don’t go to bed soon I think I might die.

Next day thoughts: I woke up feeling lighter than usual. I weighed two pounds less than the day before. I also just feel overall healthier. I wasn’t starving in the morning like I usually am. Overall, I enjoyed doing my one day cleanse. I don’t think I’m cut out for doing more than one day but the one day was enough to hit the reset button on my body. Moving forward with the week I’m going to attempt to make healthy decisions on what foods I eat (minus on Cinco de Mayo because all bets are off when it comes to margaritas). I was surprised as to how I handled this cleanse. I did the one day Blue Print Cleanse and I thought I was actually going to pass out from malnourishment. But I didn’t feel that way with Pressed Juicery. Yes, I was hungry. But it was tolerable. And the juices all tasted pretty amazing. My favorite juice from the cleanse was definitely Citrus 2. Would I do this cleanse again? Probably.

Have you guys ever done a juice cleanse before? If so, let me know which ones in the comments below and what you thought!

  • I love ur review! I always want to try but after hour one the thought of me not being able to eat all day will want to make me eat even more but maybe I should try to take off 2lbs and feel better!

  • It was super fun to read your thoughts on it! I would love to try a juice cleanse, though just like you it’s possible I would cave and eat something small.

    Congrats to Feeling better and losing two pounds!! I am horrible at sticking with cleanses. I have the most sensitive stomach. But, eating clean has been way easier then I thought. Good Luck to healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.

    Xoxo,

  • This was such a great review! I tried to do the Suja 3 day once and binged on cans of tuna and granola bars (gross combo I know!) the second night. It was not the best experience.

    It kinda turned me off juice cleanses, so it was cool to hear about this one! I might need to try this. I’m always looking for ways to stay lean and healthy without feeling like I’m going to pass out haha.

  • I am not a fan of juice cleanses because you literally starve yourself, I wish there was at least nuts or some type of raw food accepted. I usually do a mix of juice and raw foods just so I do t feel like dying and I also try to have a friend join me so I’m not alone haha xo C

    • It’s definitely easier when you’re suffering with a friend LOL

  • I love Pressed because it’s so so cheap!

    The ones in the AM and evening, the milk ones are so BOMB, I want like 100 of them.

    I love cleansing just to reset!

    great recap and post – LOLed at the Cinderella part!

  • I am so excited that you did a review over this! I have been wanting to try this cleansing system out for a while because the price is so good but I didn’t want to not like the flavors but it sounds like for the most part that it was pretty good!

    • Definitely do the Pressed Juicery one! It tastes really good!

  • I’ve had Pressed Juicery a couple of times but I’ve never attempted their cleanses. I’m too scared! Haha. I like my food and I don’t know if I can commit, even if it’s just for a day. But it’s nice to hear your thoughts, and it sounds like it worked!
