    Does anyone know what the properties of pineapple apple and mint would be to help with detox? I know apple cider is good for liver but the rest? Very sweet. And now I'm hearing alot of strange sounds coming from my tummy.

    Can't go in the kitchen because hubby left out the raisin bran. Have had no cereal since last week! That crunch sounds tempting... don't worry I'll be good.

    Jennifer, you are so funny with the carrot. I thought you were going to say you had potatoes, not one carrot! LOL

    Congrats to both of you on completing you first day! I have a question - maybe I missed this - I know you're both doing the Blueprint, but are you doing two different versions of the cleanse?

    K, pineapple contains Bromelain, an enzyme which helps break down proteins, and aids digestion. And mint contains flavinoids that act to relax the digestive tract.


    Cassandra, there are 3 different types: Renovating Type, Foundation Cleanse, and Excavation Type.

    Kmarney is doing the Renovating Type
    Renovating Type
    "I know what whole foods are, and I’ve seen people buying them. I would too, but I’m too busy to be choosy – my vegetable intake comes in the form of: Ketchup – “tomatoes” and French Fries – “potatoes.” Salad is found in EVERY cheeseburger I eat: it’s that green-ish color in the middle of the burger. Fruit? Easy, it’s the garnish on my cocktail, (usually an orange). I have cut back on red meat… and know I should only buy organic, free range, hand massaged meats and vegetables raised by people who smell like patchouli oil, but where do they even sell that stuff?"

    Caution: The Renovation Cleanse has been referred to as "a gateway cleanse," as it may encourage you to experiment with the next three levels of the Blueprint Cleanse. This "Class-A" cleanse will leave you addicted to feeling amazing and wanting more.

    This is the first and potentially the most important step you can take.

    The Renovation Cleanse places you on the path to feeling and looking better. This Cleanse is designed for the absolute beginner—the “I’ll have my martini with a side of steak, please” type—and for that we applaud you. Typically the renovating type is one who could stand to lose a few pounds, or perhaps a few more than a few. You like to indulge, sometimes in excess—a few extra drinks here, a few extra smokes there, but hey, who’s counting? Maybe you even have a family history of health issues. Point is you’re a real person, who is about to feel real results.

    Ready for the big secret? This is not a diet! We hate to tell you this, but no one is counting calories, carbs or fat grams—this is about health and it just so happens that typically, a healthy body is a lean body! This is just plain old common-sense-food-science: the ideal, most effective way of eating: As Nature Intended.

    Most Cleanses or “fasts” bring about serious detox side effects, i.e. fatigue, skin eruptions, migraines, and many other unpleasant healing symptoms. This occurs because not everyone is able to do a “juice fast” or “master cleanse”—it is simply too intense for many whose dietary habits are similar to well, yours. Sure, you can do an extreme cleanse, however you will probably have to stop everything you’re doing and lock yourself in your bedroom because you have a killer headache and a funny-looking rash on your neck.

    This level has just enough fat and calories included, to curb your side effects, so you can still go about your daily life while you simultaneously give your insides a breather. You’ll enjoy more energy, stable moods, increased productivity; normalized weight, clearer skin and fewer “detox” symptoms. The Renovation cleanse fills you up with six delicious tonics—a combination of creamy combination fruit juices like pineapple & mint, refreshing lemonades with agave nectar and nourishing green juices—every day. But don’t worry, we know what you’re used to; we promise not to sneak in anything too grassy!

    Did you know:
    Cayenne - Stimulates circulation, helps prevent ulcers. Contains capsaicin, which opens and drains congested nasal passages. LOSE WEIGHT? Yup. All that heat takes calories and energy to produce.

    Beet – Stimulates the liver, regulates menstrual periods, premature menopause and constipation. Very high in iron – protects against colon cancer, lowers cholesterol, and reduces the risk of birth defects.

    Pineapple – Aids digestion, anti-inflammatory.

    Breaks down old undigested proteins, helps regenerate a hardened liver, and cleans the digestive tract.
    We know, sometimes it’s hard for us to believe that we deserve to feel better and look our best– but guess what? We do! So, let the Renovating begin! You know your Cleanse level, now choose how long you’d like to go. You can match up the Renovation Cleanse with any one of our four lengths of time.

    Renovation Menu:
    Green Juice
    Pineapple, Mint, Apple
    Green Juice
    Spicy Lemonade
    Carrot, Apple, Ginger, Lemon, Beet
    Cashew Nut Milk
    And I'm trying out the Foundation Type
    The Foundation Type
    "I don't know what I am! I’m not a vegetarian because I eat fish (but not the kind with mercury). I'm definitely NOT, nor will I ever be, a vegan - (I love a good cheese plate...and sometimes a salumi plate). I try to eat a big salad everyday and limit those “bad-starches.” When I do have dessert, I order some sort of fruit based dessert, as opposed to that awesome flourless chocolate cake…that, sometimes I do order…but only because it’s flourless, …and a special occasion. But, that’s not even a big deal, cause’ I’ll just work it off at the Gym the next day."

    Foundation Cleanse triggers your body to cleanse and gently detox, and, yes lose some serious baggage in the process. After you've laid the Foundation with this more intense cleanse, you can move up to the next level - you overachiever you.

    You know your type, but just in case you forgot some of the benefits you’ll receive from building this Foundation, let us remind you:

    Typically the Founding types are, well, like you! Active, busy people who exercise and have tried many different diets but either can’t get their hands on fresh, whole food, or simply don’t have the time. So, what you’re left with is that occasional sluggish feeling as a result of “slipping”…we’ve all been here before: a little too much white flour, a Christmas cookie or four, soda, alcohol and processed food. Hey, it’s easy to lose track!

    Foundation is going to take care of those warning signs you, no doubt, have been feeling. The best news is that you can end your dieting trends and make a conscious decision that makes sense! We can’t say it enough, this is not a diet - if you need to lose weight you will; if you don’t, you won’t - it is simply a side effect of internal cleansing. Our Blueprint “elixirs” are designed to immediately start working to restore your body to its natural state. It’s simple: place your order online and receive up to three days worth of juice per delivery. Everything you need for the whole day is inside the BPC cooler tote bag, including your daily menu and some cool facts about why what you’re eating is so good for you.

    Spinach – The Journal of Nutrition have identified at least 13 different flavonoid compounds in spinach that function as anti-cancer agents. Provides Iron for energy, improves eyesight, slows loss of mental function, anti-inflammatory, and promotes gastrointestinal health. Phew!

    Apple - Alkalizing, strong diuretic, valuable cleaner of the entire system. High in Antioxidants.

    Cashew Nut Milk – Maintains a healthy heart, supports cardiovascular functions, protects against high blood pressure. Contains zinc, which rebuilds the body’s collagen supply and therefore prevents wrinkling, stretch marks and all other potential “body roadmaps.” Zinc also helps the lymphatic system eliminate wastes.

    Apply your Cleanse to any of our lengths of time. You decide how long!

    Foundation Menu:
    Green Juice
    Pineapple, Apple, Mint
    Green Juice
    Spicy Lemonade
    Green Juice
    Cashew Nut Milk

    Well, I felt like crap this morning. I went to bed so early, like around 11, and woke up at 7 with the worst headache. I'm blaming that on caffeine withdrawals. I had to skip drink #1. But as the day goes on (2 green teas + 32 oz water later) I'm starting to feel much better. I haven't exercised at all during this. Although I'm thinking of doing some yoga tonight. That just sounds so relaxing.

    Sounds like you're doing great, kmarney!

    Jennifer - I hope you feel better. I woke up with a terrible headache this morning myself, but mine is definitely not from caffeine withdrawals! LOL

    Just finished my last drink of the three day! Definitely had less energy this afternoon and got a headache after the beet drink...same thing yesterday. Definitely looking forward to real food tomorrow...even if I have to do it light. It was tough making dinner for the kids tonight. It smelled so good! Good luck Jennifer! You are definitely on a tougher program than me!

    Default Re: Detox and Detox Pills.

    The morning after:
    Three pounds lost during the three days. Plus 2 for the prepare menu. Probably mostly water.... But I hydrated so much, we'll have to wait and see. I forgot to measure before I started but everything is definitely looser! Which is soo good! The best part....haven't craved any diet coke the whole time! It must be related to all of the fruit juice... for the most part, I've only missed chewing!

    Feel decent. Didn't get much sleep last night 'cuz hubby wasn't home. So, it's probably that! Nervous about re-entry into the food world. I want to take what how I've benefitted and pay it forward. So, dining mostly and fruits, veggies and a little fish moving forward. I have a dinner to attend tonight so I've gotta be careful!

    Good luck on the rest of your journey Jennifer!

    Oh yeah...at this point, I'd definitely do it again! I wanted to hit the "reset" button and I think I've accomplished that!

    This has been very interesting to read. You ladies have inspired me to eat healthier and I decided to start with giving up my addiction....caffeine. I am having my morning coffee for now because then I would not be able to function at work but nothing else after that. My 3 to 4 daily diet cokes are out and I am going through withdrawal....major headaches for the past 2 days! I have also included fruits and veggies in every meal and no red meat, just having chicken & fish.

    I really admire you ladies (Jennifer & kmarney) for doing this 3 day juice cleanse. I could NEVER do without solid food!

    I am seriously thinking about doing one of these cleanses. I feel like I would need to make sure I was home the whole time and not running around or at work to be more successful with it.

    That's amazing Kmarney. I'm glad to hear you have such a great experience with the BPC. So you're thinking about doing it again? I wonder how often they recommend a cleanse..




    .. round 2 begins..
    Just got my last 2 days in the mail. I felt so more energized than in the previous days. Headache gone, no snack food or caffeine cravings.


    Cassandra, does your work have a fridge? I do know what you mean - you have to be back at your fridge atleast every couple hours. Which makes it kinda impossible to go on an all day shopping trip, unless you carry around their mini cooler bag, lol.
