FAQs - NUTRITION & JUICE
How should I prepare for the cleanse?
We recommend eliminating highly processed foods, caffeine, sugar, alcohol, red meat & dairy at least a few days before your juice cleanse. Coming off a highly indulgent weekend may not be the best time to cleanse. You should take a few days to integrate nutritious foods into your diet. This will make the juice cleanse easier for you and you will reap the most benefits!
How many calories are in a 1-day cleanse?
There are six 16-oz juices in every 1-day cleanse. Each flavor varies, but your daily caloric intake is around 1200 calories.

What is the point of green juice?
The green juice is the most important juice that we include in your cleanse, hence why you drink 3/day! Depending on our diets, our bodies can become very acidic. This offsets our internal balance, creates deficiencies and encourages unhealthy cravings. Foods that are naturally acidic are very common in the Standard American Diet, more common than alkaline foods! Diseases thrive in an acidic environment. Common acidic foods include diet soda, coffee, red meat, dairy, sugar, nuts, and legumes. The easiest way to achieve a more acid/alkaline balance in our body is to incorporate greens, greens and more greens. The green juice is a huge contribution to the cleanse, helping rid ourselves of unhealthy craving and helping to achieve that natural balance.
How should I store my juices?
The juices must be constantly refrigerated! As soon as you receive your cleanse, put it in the refrigerator. If you are bringing juices with you to work or school, make sure you have them in your insulated Ripe Stuff lunch tote with frozen cooler packs. Once you arrive at your destination, stick them back in the fridge!
How long do my juices last?
Your cleanse is delivered to you the night before you should start it. For optimal enjoyment please start the day you indicated when ordering. If you have any questions, please contact us.
It looks as though the juices are all separated, is that bad?
That is normal, just give them a shake before consuming.
