I'll post a few links I already have up in my browser . I juice daily, usually breakfast or an in between breakfast and lunch snack. I personally probably wouldn't do an all juice detox, I feel like doing some every day is a good place for me. I love trying new recipes and sneaking veggies in where I usually don't get them. Without juicing I never eat veggies before lunch!

I did a 3-day juice cleanse a few weeks ago. Mine was based on 4 large juices per day. I have type 1 diabetes so unfortunately I had to eat a snack or two in addition to drinking the juices just to keep my blood sugar from continuously crashing, but overall, it was a good experience. If you drink caffeine on a daily basis, be sure to either ween yourself off before hand or find a caffeinated, unsweetened tea that you like (I forgot this step on the first day. I usually drink 1 cup of coffee per day and ended up with a massive headache that evening).
I make my own juices with a juicer. Cost wise, it was a lot cheaper than buying juices and I got to adjust the ingredients based on food allergies and preferences. I never really got hungry so having to eat snacks was actually really difficult. By the end of the 2nd day though, I had a ton of energy and got to FaceTime with DB that night. He made some really positive comments on changes in my skin and energy that I hadn't noticed and now he wants to try it when he gets back

I juiced a couple months ago for 4 days. The first day was the hardest.... But after day two I felt great! I had more energy, I slept AMAZING!, my headaches went away, my stomach didnt feel bloated (I usually bloat after I eat)...
I drank 6-8 glasses of juice a day and did lots of carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, kale, spinach, oranges, celery...... anything and everything. I even did beets once YUCK! At nights I always drank a homemade almond milk (1 cup of almonds in hot water for 2 hours.... then blend with water, cinnamon and agave nectar)... sometimes I would spice it up and throw in some strawberries. I drained my milk bc I would choke on the shells.
I had to stop bc I lost 8lbs in the 4 days and I started at 125 but I try and do it at least once a week on a day I am not doing anything bc you go to the bathroom like crazy!
