    Default RAW by Aster Detoxifying Cleanses - Five-Day Catwalk Cleanse

    Detoxes and cleanses have been on my mind lately. It's been way too long since my last! So when I saw this deal on ruelala I couldn't pass it up. ($80 - reg $170) I usually do juice detoxes so I really don't know what to expect as far as results.. and I couldn't find anything online about the RAW by Aster Detoxifying Cleanses "Five-Day Catwalk Cleanse" so I'll be sure to tell you guys how it goes


    This is what the package includes:
    Picture 27.jpg

    The only detox I've ever done was BluePrintCleanse. Totally recommend it. But you have to let us know how this one goes.

    I love BPC! I've used them a couple times before and no complaints. They're awesome.

    Does that mean you can't eat any regular foods for 10 days

    Correction, I'm actually doing 11 days and adding 3 days of raw before the juicing. So far 3rd day in and I feel great!


    @FedUp , only for the middle 3 days. This is my plan: first 3 days I'm doing a organic raw / vegan which is basically just a bunch of vegetables, fruits, nothing processed or cooked. The next 3 days I'm going to be on a juice plan much like the BluePrintCleanse, I think I can copy those juice recipes pretty well. Then for the last 5 days I'll be on the Raw by Aster Plan - 1 meal a day, plus a bunch shakes and stuff.

    It just arrived in the mail today. This is the routine..


    Smoothie recipes and Lunch ideas..


    This is what I have here.

    From the left: Sleek (the powder that you put in the shake), Glamour (powder blend of fruits, berries, and vegetables), Action (blend of vitamins like A, B6, B12, Milk Thistle, etc), Revive (contains Triphala, whatever that is) and the bars in front.

    What I'm confused about is if I should continue taking my vitamins. In the guidelines it says that the "Sleek contains many vitamins and other nutrients to help meet your daily requirements"..... according to the "Sleek" powder bottle, it contains calcium 4%, iron 33% and a bunch of vitamins I've never heard of. Just wondering how I'm going to get my calcium, D's, folic, etc. I guess I'll just continue taking my daily routine..

    Oh I know all about that too.

    This detox has really been a test to my self-control, especially when Dan makes something that looks and smells really good (tonight he made spinach mushroom ricotta ravioli - omg!) and ate it right in front of me. I was just sitting there drinking my Green Juice watching his every bite. Soon as this is over I'm going straight to an Italian restaurant!

    Okay, I'm definitely going to start the Aster program on Friday. This is the longest raw / juice cleanse that I've ever done. 10th day!

    12th day! I can't believe I made it this far.. pretty crazy. I'm so proud of myself for not cheating at all during this.

    I think I'm now ready to start the RAW by Aster "Five-Day Catwalk Cleanse", which I plan to begin tomorrow morning.

    This is off topic, but I really don't like the products labeling I mean if I saw it on the shelf at a health food store I probably wouldn't pick it up. We will see though. I mean how do you really measure results on a detox cleanse? I did notice that after my 2 weeks of raw my skin is so much clearer and I slimmed down in some areas.

    Day 1 completed! I much prefer the Raw diet to this. I was so hungry today.

    Coming off of a 14 day Raw Vegan Detox this Raw by Aster Catwalk is my grand finale ending.



    First thing I did this morning was chug a glass of warm lemon water, popped the Action (blend of vitamins like A, B6, B12, Milk Thistle, etc) and Revive (contains Triphala) pills. Then I made the Berry Basic Shake. The shake was pretty darn delicious. Strawberries, 1 scoop of vanilla Sleek powder, coconut milk and 1/2 scoop of RAW Fiber by Garden of Life. Yummm!


    Mid-morning I mixed 1 teaspoon of the Glamour Greens with water, shook it up then drank. This wasnít too bad. The flavor of the berries really stood out. The powder mix also contains a bunch of other vegetables and fruits.


    For lunch I made the Raw/Blended Vegan option from their lunch ideas menu. Blended together 1 cup carrot juice, 3/4 sweet potato, 1 scoop of Vanilla Sleek and 1/2 an avocado. The texture and taste was so weird to me. Did I mention the sleek powder is vanilla? It was so overwhelmingly sweet over the other ingredient. Also have you ever taken a bite of a raw sweet potato? Exactly, you probably havenít before. Not to my taste. Also I read somewhere that Sweet Potatoes raw are difficult to digest and some people say should NOT be eaten raw.

    Vegapeace.org had this to say: Sweet potato shows trypsin inhibitor activity. That means it contains an enzyme inhibitor that blocks the action of trypsin, an enzyme that digests proteins. The trypsin inhibitor prevents the digestion of protein. Sweet potatoes with higher protein levels have more of the trypsin inhibitor. This makes raw sweet potato difficult to digest. The trypsin inhibitor is deactivated by cooking. Sweet potato should not be eaten raw.
    I couldnít even finish the Raw/Vegan Blend. I had 3 spoonfuls and had to pour it out. What a waste but I honestly thought I was going to get sick. It will be the salad bar for me tomorrow!

    read the rest of how my day went here..

    Way to go! 14 days, Im so proud of you! Great writeup too. Im very curious to see how your next few days go. Sorry the first wasn't what you hoped for. That lunch juice did sound pretty gross, I probably wouldn't have drank it either. Interesting point too about the raw sweet potatoe. I've never tried to eat one raw but it doesnt sound very appetizing.

    It was so gross. Think of the flavors: avocado, vanilla powder, raw sweet potato and carrot juice. I mean am I crazy? Does that even sound good? lol

    Just started day 2!
