My Blueprint Juice Cleanse Review – Expectations And Results
The Blueprint cleanse is a popular juice cleanse, with a lot of different options.
The program can be from 1 to 6 days in length, and is available in 5 different strengths.
Each level has a fancy name:
- Invigorate for introduction level
- Renovation for Beginner
- Foundation is Intermediate
- Excavation is Expert
- Inspiration, classified as intense
Basically, you choose the number of days based on how long you want to cleanse for. Choose your strength based on what type of cleanse you are looking for, from introductory to intense.
I decided to go with a 3 day Renovations cleanse option this time. Not too long, not too short.
Okay, enough details, let's get into my blueprint cleanse review.
When evaluating a juice cleanse I like to keep the following 3 things in mind:
Most important to me is the results. How much weight did I lose? How do I feel afterward? Were there any side effects?
How hard was the program?
Was it worth the cost? I have no problem paying a high price for something as long as I am getting good value in return.
The Blueprint cleanse is a 1-6 day cleanse. It comes in 6 different strengths or levels. The biggest difference from level to level is the number of green drinks included.
To give you an idea the Invigorate level has 1 green drink per day. At the other end of the spectrum, the Inspiration level has 4 green drinks.
The introductory Invigorate and intense Inspiration cleanses are only available for 1-3 days. All the other levels can be purchased in a 1-6 day package.
All the packages are available for sale online from Blueprint.
You can also buy 6 packs of individual flavors from Amazon. This is a good option if you want to taste the juice before committing to a longer cleanse program. Or if you want to buy more of your favorite after a cleanse.
Pros and Cons
Blueprint suggests a 3 day prep period before starting the cleanse. Kind of a pre-cleanse before the main event.
My only issue with this was the lack of details on how to go about it. There was only a vague mention of eating fruit and raw vegetables. I would have liked a little more guidance in this area.
For the main event, I was to drink 6 bottles of juice a day for the 3-day duration of the program.
By the way, if this 1-6 Day juice cleanse is too short for you, but you don't want to get into the full 30-Day program, try going in between with this 9-Day route.
The first bottle of the day was a green juice. It tasted very green, not very good at all. I may not have enjoyed it, but I was able to drink it all without too much trouble.
At the back of my head I was saying, "a green shake would've been smoother to push down". :)
The second was Pineapple/apple/mint, which was way better. I actually liked the minty tangy taste. At this point, I was remembering how I like the fruity taste of 4-Gauge I used to have before my workout routine!
Up next was another green bottle, still not my favorite. Followed by a bottle of spicy lemonade. Not too bad, but not as good as the PAM Juice.
The next bottle was a carrot/apple/beet mix. It wasn’t terrible but it definitely had a noticeable earthy vibe to it. I would say it was ok overall.
Finally, the last bottle was cashew/vanilla/cinnamon. I liked this almost as much as the PAM Juice. A nice creamy flavor.
Overall the taste was decent. I wasn’t a huge fan of the green drinks, but the other ones were pretty good.
You might want to take this into consideration when deciding which strength to try. The higher the level the more green juice you have to drink.
Over the course of the program, I lost 6 pounds, which is pretty good for that period of time.
The downside is that I gained half of that back within the first week after the cleanse.
These results seem to be fairly typical, from what I have heard from other people. But then, if you're trying to do better at it, I suggest you give a full-on colon cleanse a try.
While on the cleanse I did feel healthy, and I had lots of energy. I did not experience any side effects at all. At least that's a good thing.
I mean losing weigth doesn't necessarily mean making it hard for yourself, but taking supplements such as an HMB supp plus eating right and exercising the proper way helps a lot.
In terms of hunger, I found the pre-cleanse much harder than the cleanse itself. And in case you want to consider, there are also some of the great meal replacement shakes that even personally, I'd give a try.
Overall I don’t think I can give this cleanse the thumbs up.
I felt good while on it and lost some weight. However, I quickly gained it back again afterward.
Take a look at some other blueprint cleanse reviews. I think you will see that most people tend to agree with my assessment.
