Jus By Julie Review

Hi loves!

So a few days ago I posted that I was going to try the Jus by Julie cleanse, I did and want to talk about it.  image1

I started my 3 day cleanse on Saturday (7/9) and I officially ended it yesterday.  I have to say I am rather impressed.  Going in I really thought I was going to be starving the entire time, getting headaches and all the things you hear people talk about when they try a cleanse.  Well, I experienced none of that actually.  I was completely full and satisfied after each drink.  Some may know this but I am a vegan.  Not sure if its just because I really love veggies or what but I thought the drinks tasted amazing! I would actually crave my next juice each day.  I read some reviews where some people said one of the drinks was “too green” for their taste but I didn’t feel that way at all.  Each drink is numbered 1-6 (you drink 6 a day) and I drank them about every 3 hours or when I started to feel hungry again.  My husband did not do this cleanse so by the end of the day when he was eating dinner in front of me, I did get an urge to “chew” something.  Its funny, in the information they give you they do mention that if you feel the urge to “chew” then you can eat 2 cups of raw or steamed veggies.  So I did eat a corn on the cobb.  This was not because I was hungry (I really wasn’t at all actually) I just really was craving the corn to chew on, I know it sounds odd but I don’t know how else to explain it haha.

Day 1: felt great all day, loved the taste of all the juices, the #4 I drank was the PB and J and it was divine! (strawberry, bananna, all natural PB and rice milk) One of my faves.  I also really enjoyed the spicy pomegranate. And I did eat an ear of corn.

Day 2: still feeling great, going to the rest room a lot since my bladder is so full but feel way less bloated already after just 1 day.  They say to drink LOTS of water to stary hydrated so I have been drinking around 75oz or so a day.  I didn’t really notice a difference in my energy level, enjoyed each flavor drink this day as well.  Also ate another ear of corn for dinner

Day 3: last day.  At this point I was actually looking forward to getting up and having my first drink of the day.  I didn’t think I had it in me to really go that long without “eating” solid foods but I was feeling great the entire time and never once felt like I was depriving myself of anything.  I did have some cauliflower and raw Kale to get my “chew” fix LOL.

Overall: I would totally do this cleanse again.  I loved that it was so easy, everything is numbered for you, pre-made etc.  All I had to do was drink them across the entire day which was never an issue.  It was nice that they had a few different flavors that they mixed into each day.  The #1 juice and #6 were always the same and the others rotated.   My bloating has gone down so much.  I feel like I hold a lot of my stress in my stomach and I feel bloated often, I felt like that had gone down considerably.  I did take some before and after pics for my own record and you can definitely see a difference from day 1 until this morning when I took the final picture.

Price:  They seem to have promos running all the time.  When I purchased my cleanse it was $30 off, free shipping and 12 free booster shots.  This all came to $120.  That is a decent amount of money to spend on juice but I think its much more reasonable then others I have seen.  They have coupon codes all the time, I just looked on their site and they have the same promo running that I got with promo code JUICENOW.

Ordering: It was a breeze.  You pick a date you want the cleanse to be delivered.  I chose Friday (since I knew I wanted to start it over the weekend) and it arrived when they said it would.  Since the juices are fresh they are perishable.  So they send them frozen and packaged up in such a great way to assure they will not go bad on their way to you.  I was really impressed.

A close up so you can see what the ingredients are.  This one was so tasty !

I will be highly recommending this cleanse to anyone looking to try one.  Comment below if you have tried this and what your thoughts were or if you do end up trying it let me know!

Jus by Julie

Hi all!

Soo happy its finally Friday! Even though we had off on Monday this week just couldn’t go by fast enough. I am prepping all weekend long to get ready for our trip next weekend!! Its finally here, I cannot believe how quick that came up on us.  So in preparation for this trip, aside from the usual gel mani/pedi, lash extensions etc., I am doing a juice cleanse this weekend!

I came across Jus by Julie while doing some research and they were having a sale on their 3 day cleanse so I decided “what better time then right before my trip to try this!”  I am very excited to start the cleanse tomorrow.  I just thought I would talk a little bit about what I am expecting from this as well as what they say they are offering and then I will do a follow up post next week on if I liked it/didn’t like it and if I lost any weight etc.

So this is a 3 day juice cleanse.  That’s right, no solid food for 3 full days, bring it on!  They had a promotion where you can get the 3 day cleanse plus 12 booster shots for free AND $30 off AND free shipping.  It came to $120 which I thought was rather reasonable for 3 full days of “food” also with the hopes of shedding some weight.  They give you 18 juices total and you are supposed to drink 6 a day.  They say to drink them about every 3 hours or when you are starting to feel hungry.  They come labeled so you know which one to drink 1st, 2nd etc. on each day.  They also said the juices will last in the freezer up to 2 weeks if you decide to not start the cleanse immediately.  I thought doing it over the weekend would be so much easier then trying to bring 4/5 juices with me to work.  So I just have to bring them with me on Monday since I will start tomorrow.

I read a lot of reviews (most were very positive) which intrigued me even more to try this out.  A lot reviews said they were surprisingly not hungry during it, they had a lot of energy and dropped a few pounds.  My hope is that I will be able to lose a couple of pounds, de-bloat a little and just overall detox myself.  After last weekend (4th of July) I feel like a detox is a good thing lol.

Jus by Julie has promos a lot on their site, the 3 day cleanse + 12 free booster shots and $30 off + free shipping (that I just purchased) is still going on with promo code JUICENOW.  If you get their emails they send you promotions as well which is nice if you choose to do it again and do not want to pay full price.

I am excited for the follow up next week, so to be continued…

Any one out there try this cleanse?? Thoughts on it, love it? hate it? results? Would love to hear!
