What celebrities have done Weight Watch Detox?
It is our strict policy to protect the privacy of all WWDetoxers, including our high profile clientele. At first it was tempting to satisfy requests from newspapers, magazines, and other media outlets that offered us placement in exchange for the names of celebrities who have done the Cleanse. But we quickly realized that our clients’ confidentiality was much more important than this sort of PR opportunity. Our business has grown almost exclusively by word of mouth, and we want to thank all our customers for spreading the word by keeping the choice to endorse Weight Watch Detox entirely up to them. So intrepid reporters of all stripes, we are very happy to answer any and all questions about Weight Watch Detox and the people and ideas behind it by phone or in person. However, please understand, we have never and will never name names. But if you must know, trust us, the list is long.
Can you tell me the recipes for the different juices?
Unfortunately we don’t give out that information, but I can give you the ingredients.
Why do we pick cashews? I’ve heard good things about almond milk so I was just wondering why you choose cashews.
Cashews are packed with Zinc, Copper and Magnesium, which are great for some very common concerns: building healthy bones, and strengthening hair, skin and nails.
Why is juice so expensive?
Not all juice is created equal. When you consider what you’re consuming everyday during a Weight Watch Detox, approximately 20 lbs. of freshly pressed fruits and vegetables, and the process involved, it’s actually quite inexpensive! Don’t forget, that price also includes delivery, in order for you to get the freshest juice.
I’m addicted and want to do this every week! How many days in a row can I cleanse?
We recommend that you always listen to your body and take it day by day. If you’re feeling particularly inspired, by all means, go for a 10-day Weight Watch Detox! Can you do 21-days? As with anything, it depends on the person. Some clients who have more serious cases or are using cleanses in cancer therapy have continued on a cleanse indefinitely, until they are healed. That said, we suggest the average person do 10-days at the most and then take a one day break to reassess how they feel. If you want to go longer than 10-days we suggest that you consult your doctor first.
How often should I do a cleanse?
A good rule of thumb is whenever you experience any of the following: fatigue/general lack of energy, sleeplessness, anxiety/depression, digestive problems, at the first sign of a cold and of course, before and after holidays or any special events that lead to overindulging. We recommend doing a cleanse once a month for at least three days. This allows your body the proper rest and recovery time it needs to maintain optimum health. Make it a healthy habit – the immune system loves a consistent schedule.
Will a one-day cleanse do anything?
YES! How would you react if you never had a day off? The benefits of a one-day cleanse, once a week are astronomical! This cleanse method has been an Eastern practice for centuries, used as a quick strategy to strengthen the immune system, sharpen mental clarity, and allow the body to “catch up.” Like yourself, your body needs a rest. After only one day of stopping solid food intake, enzymes stop visiting your stomach and instead travel into the bloodstream and intestines, where they get busy attacking all sorts of old waste matter, damaged cells, and pollutants.
Do you offer an editorial discount?
If you are considering including us in any press, please contact us.
What’s better, three days, five days or ten days?
Depending on the length of the Weight Watch Detox, it accomplishes different things. A three day cleanse helps the body rid itself of old built up matter and cleanses the blood. A five day cleanse starts the process of rebuilding and healing the immune system. A 10 day cleanse will take care of problems before they arise and fight off degenerative diseases.
The length of a cleanse is an entirely personal decision. That being said you will certainly feel a dramatic difference if you cleanse for five vs. three days. Two extra days, that’s 60% more cleanse time. You reap more benefits the longer you cleanse. Certain substances take longer to leave your system than others, e.g. caffeine does not take as long as dairy, and dairy does not take as long as protein.
What do I eat when I complete my cleanse?
There are two points here: The first one regards prep work. Before any cleanse, you should lighten up – gradually. If you eat everything, e.g. meat, cheese, candy, alcohol, etc, you should slowly eliminate those a few days before and incorporate lighter fare which might include: steamed veggies, wine or sake instead of hard liquor (although, for your education, you should eliminate all alcohol a few days before and focus on hydrating), fish instead of steak and baked instead of fried. You get the idea. The same general rule also applies to the post-cleanse menu. You need to stay away from dense, processed foods. This is where “common sense” comes into play.
Can I do Weight Watch Detox and eat food too?
The benefits of a cleanse will be lost if you eat solid food in addition to the juices. The idea of a cleanse is to only consume the juice so that your digestive system has time to rest. However, if you want to supplement your current diet with cold pressed juice it’s great for digestion and packed with vitamins and minerals.
Is it OK to exercise while cleansing?
Absolutely! Can we please finally put to rest the myth that if you don’t eat a lot, you’ll lack energy? Unless one is undergoing a water fast, which, should only be done with a coach, energy levels will skyrocket! You will be amazed to see that the more you allow your digestive tract to rest, the more your energy gets a boost. The energy that is usually spent on digestion is now yours for the taking, so grab it and go for a jog! Remember – you are feeding your cells, not stuffing your belly.
I can’t get the Green Juice down! Is it okay if I just skip them? Is it enough calories?
Skip the Green Juice? No way! It’s delicious and the workhorse of Weight Watch Detox. Power through it; it’s got all the good stuff. Good stuff means: vitamins, minerals, nutrients, anti-oxidants, flavanoids, enzymes and more. You could try adding some fresh squeezed lemon juice or having the juice over ice, that may help. If you have to, hold your nose and drink it. Just get it down one way or another. Just keep thinking you are giving your body raw sun shine!
I have a work meeting that I can’t be drinking a juice at, if I eat a light salad, will it totally mess it up?
This is not the end of the world, and you’ll be just fine. Try to stick to just raw foods, fruit and vegetables. Our best recommendation is to schedule your cleanse when your schedule is least complicated.
Will I receive instructions with my juices?
Of course, we send a preparation email to everyone prior to their cleanse.
Can my children take Weight Watch Detox juices?
Children should not do any type of juice cleanse or fast while they are still growing. That said, Weight Watch Detox is an amazing addition to any diet. Cold pressed juice is always a better alternative to soda.
What are the benefits of the green juices vs. the fruit juices?
The main benefit of green juice is its alkalizing effect. Fruit juices are more astringent; essentially the fruit digs it up and the green moves it out. Think of how your eyes start to water and maybe your nose runs a little when you bite into a lemon – citrus is a wonderful natural expectorant.
Will I gain all the weight back?
Hopefully, if weight control is your goal, Weight Watch Detox will put you on a path towards healthier habits. Many people report being able to focus more on what they are putting into their body after a Weight Watch Detox. Make this your goal in preparing for your cleanse, and ask yourself, “What am I going to do when this cleanse is over?” It’s an opportunity to “reset.”
How much weight will I lose?
Remember, this is a nutritional cleanse designed to give your digestive system a rest and therefore allow your body to eliminate toxins. Everybody’s metabolism is different so there is no definitive answer to this question. However, we are sure you will be very pleased with your results. Just don’t snack or sway off the program if you want optimum results.
Should I continue to take my multi-vitamins? What about B-12?
If your vitamins are food-based, then maybe. You are consuming about 20 lbs of freshly pressed fruits and vegetables every day, which means that that is now essentially your “multi-vitamin.”
The only vitamin that you might want to add is B-12. There is much debate over whether or not vegetarians get enough B-12 on a plant based diet. If you do not want to take a supplement just add some sea vegetables or blue-green algae.
Where do I get my protein?
There are MANY sources of protein other than that which comes from animals. With Weight Watch Detox you’ll receive protein from our Green Juice as well as our Cashew Nut Milk. While the Cashew Nut Milk is a more obvious source of protein, don’t discount the protein punch that comes from living plant foods. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and amino acids are in everything.
Other great sources of protein include blue-green algae’s such as Chlorella, E3Live, Spirulina (64% protein), and Green Superfood Powders and concentrates such as Vitamineral Green. Where do you think the non-meat-eating, strongest animals in the world, the Silverback Gorillas, get their protein?
Shouldn’t I have fiber? Should I take fiber supplements?
Normally, fiber is great for moving things through your system, but when the body must separate out juice from fiber, there is an energy expenditure there that is significant. For our purposes, we want to reduce this burden as much as possible so that we can give the body and digestive tract a break from having to break down solid food – so that the saved energy can be transferred to cleansing processes. When you save energy in one department you can expend it somewhere else.
I am allergic to cashews and nuts – do you have a replacement?
Yes – we do cater to cashew nut allergies. You receive an additional Green juice instead. But please be aware that it is all made in the same premises.
How many calories are in the 6 bottle Weight Watch Detox level?
Weight Watch Detox offers between 900 – 1,100 calories and the Weight Watch Detox Sport offers between 1,200 – 1,400. However, please bear in mind that counting calories with raw foods and juice is not equivalent to the calories you count on a traditional diet of cooked and/or processed foods. Nothing is wasted here, as the body knows how to assimilate all the calories in raw live foods, whereas a regular diet of 2,000 calories for example, might only have about 1,200 useable calories and the rest is “wasted” or stored as fat. We do try to encourage all our clients to move away from calorie oriented thinking, as it’s really no comparison. 500 calories of live juice is NOT the same 500 calories as a bagel with cream cheese! We try to focus on the nutritional content as opposed to the calorie content; Weight Watch Detox is more about nutrition and flooding your body with live enzymes.
Will Weight Watch Detox help me quit smoking or alcohol?
It’s possible! If you do Weight Watch Detox for an extended period of time then you’re bound to lose some nasty habits. If for example, you were to do 21 days (with some supplemental foods); you would likely find at the end of your cleanse that you don’t want to put “bad” or unhealthy products back into your system. Any cleanse for this length of time can help you evaluate any bad habits.
Can I smoke or drink alcohol on the Reboot / Cleanse / Detox?
Smoking and/or Alcohol is not recommended.
Why is the Pineapple juice pink or brown?
Discoloration is totally normal. Sometimes the high level of poly-phenols and antioxidants may turn it pink or brown. This is totally natural and the juice is safe to drink.
What about protein?
Our juices are full of protein, in fact many times your daily requirement is contained in the course.
How often can I cleanse?
A monthly full cleanse with a “Juice til Dinner” program can be a way to achieve and maintain all of your health benefits indefinitely. You cannot go wrong with the juice!
Will I be hungry while cleansing?
After the first one or two days your body will recognize it is receiving a full complement of daily requirements and you will lose the feeling of hunger. We have some tips for helping through the initial period which we would be happy to share with you – simply let us know!
Are Weight Watch Detox juices organic?
We strive to use organic whenever possible but the myriad of certifications and supplies sometimes make that goal impossible. We hand pick the best available produce and maintain rigorous sanitation standards to provide healthy juices we are extremely proud of.
Can I freeze the juices?
Although freezing will eliminate a small percentage of goodness it is a viable option when necessary.
Are the juices fresh?
Our juices are produced daily, and a maximum of two days order will be delivered at any one time as we believe in offering the freshest product possible at all times.
