WHAT IS A CLEANSE
A method of purifying or purging the body of toxins and cravings that may be the result of over indulging in sugar, processed food, alcohol etc. It also helps rid us of a variety of day to day toxins that we come in contact with everyday while nourishing & replenishing the body by flooding it with nutrients.
Its a great way to detoxify, reset, reboot and nourish the body. It's the perfect way to kick off new lifestyle choices.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEANSE?
This is based on personal preference and each individual's lifestyle! Some people prefer to cleanse quarterly, monthly, weekly, or based on occasion (i.e. prior to a trip/vacation, pre/post holiday, pre/post big event etc). Other people prefer to cleanse when the mood strikes or after a particularly indulgent weekend. And then there are those who choose to cleanse in order to kick off a new lifestyle choice, program, or diet.
HOW IS THIS CLEANSE DIFFERENT FROM A JUICE CLEANSE?
Our cleanse is similar to a juice cleanse in the sense that you are consuming 6 bottles of pure wholesome-ness a day. The difference is that our cleanse is primarily vegetable based whereas juice cleanses tend to be fruit based. This means that our cleanse is much lower in natural sugar and it also eliminates any bloodsugar spikes. In the juicing process, all of the fiber is eliminated however this is not the case with "souping" - we keep all of the fiber which means you get to stay fuller longer. Our cleanse is also a mix of raw and heated soups which makes it the perfect combination since there are health benefits to both raw and heated foods.
WILL THIS SLOW MY METABOLISM?
The cleanse has been formulated to ensure that you are receiving the necessary daily caloric intake to keep your metabolism up and going. In fact, you may find that the variety of spices that are include may even boost your metabolism!
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?
Depending on one's diet and eating habits prior, weight loss is definitely a possible side effect. Many of our customers have experienced weight loss along with the detoxification benefits which is great motivation to stick with healthy eating choices after the cleanse.
CAN I EXERCISE WHILE CLEANSING?
Moving is always great for the body. Due to the caloric intake of the cleanse being on the lower side, we suggest sticking with low intensity work outs. However, this varies person to person so do what feels right for you.
HOW WILL CLEANSING MAKE ME FEEL?
Everyone's experiences differ based on what their normal diets and habits are. Typically the first day is the hardest - some people may experience lethargy or headaches. No worries! These are just signs that your body has registered a change in your diet. The headaches often times are the side effect of toxins exiting the body which is a good thing. Just push through with lots of water and you'll find the subsequent days to be much easier.
I HAVE MEAL OBLIGATIONS ( WORK DINNERS ETC) - WILL IT DEFEAT THE PURPOSE OF THE CLEANSE IF I EAT WHILE I AM ON IT?
Flooding your body with vitamin and mineral rich nutrients will never be a waste of time. Life happens. If you find that during your cleanse you have to be social over a plate of food, just be cognizant of what you are eating. Keep it clean! Stick with veggies, legumes, whole grains and maybe a lean protein if needed. Try a great crispy salad with olive oil & a squeeze of lemon, veggie curry and brown rice, grilled fish with quinoa and veg.... then return to your cleanse as normal. Just be sure to skip one or two soups in order to stick with the same calorie count.
HOW LONG DO THE SOUPS LAST?
Our soup blends are created fresh and preservative free just prior to you receiving them. Upon receiving them, please be sure to refrigerate immediately and consume within 6 days for optimal freshness. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to consume them. Natural separation may occur, so feel free to give them a shake prior to sipping.
CAN I FREEZE THE SOUPS?
We make a huge effort to get your soups to you as quickly after they are made as possible so you can enjoy them in their freshest state. If for some reason, you are not able to enjoy them right away, you can freeze them, however we cannot guarantee that they will be as delicious as they are fresh.
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR THE CLEANSE?
Check out our cleanse prep instructions! They are emailed to you once you place your order for your cleanse.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE CLEANSE?
We suggest reintroducing foods gradually. Your first day after your cleanse you may want to just stick with veggies, legumes, nuts, fruit and whole grains. The second day you can additionally start reintroducing lean proteins. The third day you can return to eating normally.... or not! After cleansing you may find that you no longer crave some temptations such as sugar or coffee - in this case, why go back?! Keep it clean.
CAN I CLEANSE IF I AM PREGNANT OR NURSING?
We recommend always discussing any changes to your diet with your doctor first. Nursing and pregnancy both require a higher intake of calories than normal so we suggest this cleanse as a supplement to your regular diet as opposed to a substitute for meals. Definitely discuss your specific nutritional needs with your doctor prior to making any changes to your current diet.
CAN I CLEANSE IF I AM SICK?
Everyone's specific nutritional needs differ vastly based on illnesses so we suggest consulting your doctor first. However, any sickness depletes and weakens the immune system. Flooding your system with a variety of vitamins and nutrients can only help strengthen your immune system.
CAN I HEAT THE BOTTLES IN THE MICROWAVE?
In general we do no recommend heating the soups in the microwave -preferred method is the old fashion way, in a pan over a burner. However, if for convenience you choose to use the microwave, please transfer your soup blend to a "microwavable container" and heat for 1 minute intervals until the desired temperature is reached. Please DO NOT attempt to microwave your soup blend in its Skinny Souping container - it will melt and you will miss out on your tasty soup blend.
