DAY 3: JUICE CLEANSE
WHAT IT IS
A steady, daylong diet of nothing but organic, fresh squeezed juices formulated to act as Liquid-Plumr in your intestinal tract.
FEELING AT THE BEGINNING OF DAY 3
Miserable, tired, and hungry.
My fingers still smell like sausage and beer, but this bright-green bottle marked "Prana" smells like a freshly mown lawn… probably because it's made of romaine, collard greens, cucumbers, cilantro, and lemon. It tastes like chores. So does the next one, made of kale, spinach, parsley, and celery. Also, I can't get off the couch. I feel terrible and need Domino's.
Drink three is a nice change of pace, since it's apple, beet, and carrot. It looks like stage blood, but tastes sweet. But my stomach isn't happy, and I soon find my college basketball game interrupted by a howling deep inside of me. The good news is the green stuff has definitely gone through my system. The bad news is that this will happen 11 more times over the next eight hours -- representing the entire color spectrum -- and the cayenne that dominated the carrot/red pepper/broccoli juice really makes its presence known.
Luckily, the last juice is almond, cacao, vanilla bean, nutmeg, and sea salt. It tastes like chocolate milk, and lulls me to sleep like a baby (a baby who desperately needs to switch to Cottonelle).
FEELING AT THE END OF DAY 3
Vacant and dead-eyed.
