I have watched the models I work with experiment with different types of cleanses for years- pills that cleanse, the Master Cleanse, Model Detox cleanse, home brewed leek cleanses, etc. -but what I also noticed is that they seemed to leave the person cleansing either REALLY Cranky, REALLY hungry, REALLY in need of a restroom constantly or in some cases from garlic pills REALLY smelled bad!
Over the last year I have heard a ton of chatter from celebrities like Jason Wu, Olivia Wilde, and Sarah Jessica Parker plus recommendations from friends in New York- models, actors, PR gals, marketing gals, designers- about this amazing cleanse that makes you feel incredible: the BluePrintCleanse. Founded by raw food enthusiast Zoe Sakoutis the BluePrint motto is We Think You Drink!
The winter months combined with traveling for work have not been kind to my weight or how I feel physically (tired, lack of motivation and lack of focus) so I decided to give The BluePrintCleanse a go.
What does it do?
“The Cleanse will gently rid your body of impurities, regain the alkaline balance and normalize digestion and metabolism. Too often a cleanse stirs up detox symptoms that are far too intense for the average person. BPC is designed for people that would like to give their insides a rest while simultaneously going about their daily lives”.
Why a Juice Cleanse vs. the other kinds of Cleanses?
BluePrintCleanse is a nutritional cleanse made with fresh fruits and vegetables, so rather than a deprivation cleanse or fast, you are flooding your system with loads of vitamins, nutrients and live enzymes that feed your body on a cellular level and give it everything it needs while your digestive system is able to rest and reboot.
How Does it Work?
BluePrintCleanse is unique! Offering different levels of intensity plus each level gives a choice on how long you want to cleanse (either a 3 day, 5 day or 10 day programs).
“The main difference between the three levels corresponds with how many green juices vs. fruit juices per day. If you are new to juicing and aren’t used to as much green juice start with level one and gradually work your way up.”
I chose the Renovation 3 day Cleanse, set my delivery date on the calendar (they let you schedule when it arrives) and placed my order. (If you live in New York it is hand delivered to your door, if you live elsewhere like me it is sent via fed-ex for a minimal charge.)
Once my juices arrived everything was as easy as 1-2-3! (NO mixing, NO Blending-its all done for you!)

I had 6 juices to drink per day (which were numbered). You combine your juices with a plentiful water intake and green tea. I added fresh lemon to my water for flavor. The green juices were a bit hard for me to get down at first but you get used to them (putting them over ice and adding freshly squeezed lemon helps) and they are broken up with some delicious fruit juices in between-Pineapple Mint is yummy!
I am so proud to say that I made it through my ENTIRE cleanse without a single cheat! I wasn’t even hungry. Seriously. It was more a mental game, something looked good but my body wasn’t craving it, my mind was.
During my cleanse and after, the folks at BluePrint were so supportive! They sent me encouraging emails and tweets of support. It fealt like I had a whole nutrition team cheering me on!
Since completing my cleanse the biggest question I am asked is “How do you feel?”
It’s hard to explain how much better you feel! I am REALLY clear headed, REALLY energized and focused and my body feels like I have been getting in good workouts for about a week (even though I haven’t).
My reasons for cleansing were to clean out my body and reset myself both mentally and physically before starting a weight loss plan. I have really had problems in the past committing to a weight loss plan and not cheating. After my BPCleanse dieting has become so much easier- now I don’t want to put bad things in my body. It was life changing for me! I am down 10 pounds and its been the easiest 10 pounds I’ve ever lost.
I began this journey for myself, I hadn’t planned on writing about it but I had such an amazing experience with BluePrint I just had to share it with you!
I would HIGHLY recommend the BluePrintCleanse -whether you are looking to loose weight, feel better physically or just do some “Spring Cleaning” you will be amazed at what this cleanse can do for you. (Its gluten free and 100% vegan so no excuses!)
Here are just a few of the possible benefits from doing a BluePrintCleanse:
