The 0ne Day Juice Plan begins as it means to go on, with the emphasis on gentle cleansing. As soon as you wake up, drink a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon. This is an excellent way to begin the fast as it helps to cleanse the intestines.
Body brushing, followed by a hot shower, finished off with a burst of cold water. Afterwards give your body a good rub down with a towel, this will stimulate your circulation and lymphatic system.
Time for the first straight juice of the day. Drink one 8 fl oz/230ml serving of juice, diluted. If you feel thirsty during the morning drink either still water, water with a squeeze of lime, or herb tea: try chamomile, lemon balm or rosehip for a soothing, cleansing effect.
Breathing exercises, gentle walk.
Whenever your internal clock tells you that it's time for lunch, drink another one 8fl oz/230ml serving of your chosen juice, diluted. If you feel thirsty during the afternoon, drink water, water with a squeeze of lime, or herb teas.
Sauna or Turkish bath, massage.
If you have managed to keep the hunger pangs and food at bay, it's time for you to finish your fast with a flourish, and drink down the final serving of juice: drink one 8fl oz/230ml serving of juice, diluted. Drink water with a squeeze of lime, still water or herb teas if you are thirsty.
Epsom Salt Bath (if you haven't gone for a sauna or Turkish bath in the afternoon) before going to bed.
Last Thing at Night
Give your digestive system one more clean sweep by drinking a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon. Then curl up and snooze, ready to feel bright and breezy the next day.
