Welcome to KARMIC! Please let us know if you would like any more specific information - we are always happy to help.
Will I lose weight by completing a KARMIC Cold Pressed Cleanse?
Generally people will lose weight on a Cleanse program. It is important to understand that this weight loss is a combination of releasing fluids, glycogen stores and internal waste, in addition to body fat. Anecdotally, over the past 5 years of supplying cleanses to clients, people can lose between 1.5-3 kg on a 2-Day Cleanse – however, please understand that everyone is different and as such the experience will differ from each individual.
How long does the juice last?
For optimal nutrient absorption we recommend consumption within 3 days of delivery. Make sure that the juice is refrigerated at all times and shake well before consumption - it is normal for the juice to separate.
Can I do a Cleanse program whilst on medication or with any medical conditions?
Whilst we would love everyone to engage in a KARMIC Cleanse, if you are currently taking medication or have any concerns we recommend that you consult your health care professional prior to commencing a Cleanse.
How should I prepare for a KARMIC Cold Pressed Juice Cleanse?
The days prior to commencing a KARMIC Cleanse we encourage you to reduce your intake of processed and artificial foods, refined carbohydrates (foods that are high in sugar), as well as caffeine and alcohol. Try to drink plenty of water to prepare your body as best as possible.
Can I exercise whilst on the Cleanse program?
It is recommended that only light exercise is completed whilst on the cleansing e.g. Yoga, Pilates, stretching, swimming, light cycling or walking.
Other activities that will assist with cleansing are skin exfoliation, mediation/breathing exercises and exposure to natural sunlight and fresh air.
If you want to exercise, but still receive the benefits of the micronutrients contained the Cold Pressed Juice and other items, we recommend you complete the ACTIVE Pack – this is not a cleanse per se, as there are macronutrients in this pack.
Can I eat anything whilst on the Cleanse program?
It is important to understand that one of the great benefits of doing a Karmic Cleanse is that the digestive system is getting a much-needed break. It is common to feel the need to eat. It is recommended that common sense be used with regards to eating - If food is required whilst cleansing, then by all means eat. Some food suggestions whilst cleansing are steamed vegetables, salad dishes, unsalted/activated almonds, and boiled egg.
How often should I Cleanse?
The team at KARMIC believe that cleansing is an ongoing ritual and therefore should be performed at regular intervals. To feel the complete benefits of a KARMIC Cold Pressed Juice cleanse, one must undergo the ritual more than once. The initial cleanse can cause a slight shock to the system and some benefits may be felt such as weight loss, lighter insides and resetting of the taste buds. This first cleanse lays the foundations for subsequent cleanses and makes way for a complete body transformation.
We recommend booking in for at least 2 cleanses at the one time (i.e. beginning on the same day in consecutive weeks) in order to prepare the body and mind for the experience.
Does it matter in what order I drink the juice?
The Juice Cleanse programs have a specific order to them, this is designed to balance nutritional intake and satisfy the taste buds. Whilst this is the general order, you may consume the juice it whatever order you like and the results will be the same.
Why not just eat more vegetables instead of doing a Cleanse?
One of the main benefits of doing a Cleanse is that you allow your digestive system to rest and recover. For every 2-day Cleanse over 8kg of raw vegetables is consumed in juice form. It would be very hard to digest 8kg of raw vegetables without causing digestive discomfort.
What should I eat the days following a Cleanse?
We suggest that you stick mainly to raw foods on the day following your cleanse. Some great meal ideas are:
Try to reduce your portion sizes at meal times and attempt to eat slower than you normally would. It is important is to eat regularly (don’t skip meals) to retain your metabolism and drink plenty of water to maintain your fluid intake. It is normal for your body to desire more KARMIC Cold Pressed Juice, given the nutrient abundance and healing properties – if this is the case don’t hesitate to order more juice or start making your own at home.
Breakfast - fresh fruit and natural yoghurt, quinoa porridge or poached eggs
Lunch - steamed vegetables, vegetable soup, fruit or more vegetable juice (if not consuming KARMIC juice ensure to check the label for sugar/ fructose content - anything over 10% sugar is not recommenced)
Dinner - salad or steamed fish with steamed vegetables
Snacks - juice (mainly vegetable), fresh fruit or vegetables, nuts
What to do with your bags and bottles?
One of the great things about glass packaging is that it is great for your body and it is also very environmentally friendly - it recycles very well, so feel free to place with all other glass items in the recycling bin.
If you would like to return the Bags/Bottles to KARMIC so that we can reuse and recycle as much as possible, we can to collect them from your residence with your next Cleanse delivery; just leave them out the front of your house or hand them to our driver.
Additionally, we aim to do "Bag and Bottles" rescue operations every 6 weeks or so, so that we can collect back as many items in the most time and energy effective manner - stay tuned with our e-newsletters for announcements regarding this.
