Beta Breakthrough Juice Fast Day 14

Hallelujah! I survived my juice cleanse! Yesterday was the final day and I am so happy I didn’t quit or give up. There were a few times that I seriously questioned if this cleanse was worth all the money that was spent on the produce.

The first 4 days of this cleanse I strictly juiced and only juiced low sugar veggies. The next 3 days I reintroduced protein, moderate carbs, and healthy fats into my diet. Then I repeated the whole thing again. I have to say I am super proud of my husband, my friend Kiley and her husband Kasey for also doing this cleanse. Josh and Kasey had to modify it slightly for their work schedules but all of us did so great and it was encouraging to know that we were doing this together.

Last week I was so excited to juice again for 4 days. Let me tell you by Friday afternoon I was so over it. I pressed on for 3 more days and was again ready to eat on Tuesday morning.

BBT DAY14DAY 14 MEASUREMENTS

WEIGHT 124 lb. | WAIST 28.5″

After the first week I was super happy with how I was feeling. Eating food for 3 whole days was simply amazing!

Before I can continue, I totally have a confession to make. In the interest of being completely honest and real with you, on my final day of eating last week, Josh thought it would be a great idea to buy a new jar of peanut butter. If you know me you would know I love peanut butter. Like I can eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon. So good! Well this wasn’t just any peanut butter it was Cookie Nookie Peanut Butter by PB Crave. Ummm…we may have eaten half the jar, and by we, I really mean I.

Even in light of the peanut butter incident I feel so successful and proud of myself with what I was able to accomplish. This cleanse was very challenging but worth every drop of green juice I drank and all the yummy veggies I consumed.

For those of you who are interested in how much money was spent to buy all the groceries for this cleanse let me break down the numbers.

TOTAL COST OF CLEANSE

  • Organic Produce for Juicing: $200
  • Branched Chained Amino Acids: $45
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: $3
  • Chia Seeds: $10
  • Psyllium Husk: $10
  • Wild Caught Salmon: $14
  • Grass Fed Chicken Breasts: $20
  • Cage Free Eggs: $8
  • Organic Produce for Eating: $120

That comes to a whopping grand total of $430. I know that is a ton of money. Josh and I had set aside money each week specifically for this cleanse. I will say that I did not need to spend anywhere near the amount I did on produce that we actually ate. I think I had gotten used to buying a large quantity to juice that it was habit to load my cart up. I also was starving.

Now for the fun part! My results!

BBT DAY1-14

WEIGHT CHANGE -3 lb. | WAIST CHANGE -0.5″

Hello abs! So I never went into this cleanse with the expectation to lose weight. I would have loved to taken my % body fat because I am pretty positive that is where the biggest change occurred. Regardless of the numbers I feel better and I am totally not craving sugar. My sugar cravings were starting to get super bad and would have continued to get worse if I had not done this cleanse.

What do you think? Can you tell a difference? Have you done a cleanse?

Have and wonderful weekend and thanks for reading!

  1. Wow! That’s amazing. I’ve never tried a cleanse before, and have always wanted to. This one just MIGHT be doable because you can at least still have nutrients. The results are pretty awesome. I am with you, wouldn’t be for weight loss, but more to clean out the system. Glad I found you on the blog hop @ all my happy endings!

    Are you happy with your juicer? Your results are awesome. I bet you feel great!

    • We do like our juicer but we would have purchased the larger Breville juicer is we could make the purchase again. We just wish it ejected the pulp out the back. I do feel really good!

  4. Wow , those abs are to die for.

  5. Hi Tamara!
    I caught wind of your blog through Shay over at Mix and Match Mama and I’m so glad I did! I’m a blog reading fool now! I’m 22 and am just starting to get serious about my fitness again. We are around the same weight range and size so to see you go through this journey with everything you’re doing is really helpful for me.
    I was wondering if you hadn’t done the cleanse, do you think the weight loss results would have remained the same or not?
    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Kristy! I am so glad you found me :). I didn’t really lose much weight on this cleanse but I know my body felt 100% better after it. XOXO

  6. This blog is very inspiring. I’ve been going back in forth if i should do this or not. I couldn’t find anybody that uploaded pictures with a written result! Amazing.

  7. Tamara:

    Hi, I’m from Mexico and I am learning about all the green juice program stuff. I have a question…Did you use the Drew Canole’s Beta breakthrough program? Or which program did you use? Could you share it?

    Thanks in advance.
