Juice cleanses: We’ve tried them, we’ve liked them, and we’ve also hated them. We like the idea of giving your organs a break (i.e. paying someone else to do all the cooking for a week), but we don’t like the fact that many women treat them more like a fad diet than a chance to renew their health. (Plus, there’s the fact that the “high” we get from detoxing is probably just our body starving itself.)
Unless you have the luxury of doing your juice cleanse on a meditation retreat this year, we highly recommend just watching this video from SRSLY—a New York City comedy duo who’ve perfectly captured the essence of what it is to do a juice cleanse. You’ll laugh, you’ll sympathize, and you’ll get a nice reminder that you’d probably rather spend your summer being active outside and eating real food with your friends at BBQs, instead of wallowing in your hunger on the couch.
