Is there a quick fix for weight loss? More and more people are talking about “cleansing” and “juicing.” So, I decided to try one of them out.

The BluePrint Cleanse was created and quickly gained popularity in New York City. Recently, it started to spread across the country, and it is now available at Whole Foods here in Central Ohio. Blue Print’s most popular cleanse is called the excavation. It involves four green juices, a lemonade and a bottle of cashew milk each day. Who knew you could milk a cashew? Wow! Losing weight and learning.

Each bottle is about $10, but it combines all natural ingredients you can make at home.

Although the cleanse is not marketed as a weight-loss technique and just a way to cleanse your body, it is widely used to shed a few pounds quickly.

I decided to try this three-day cleanse.

When I opened the first bottle and whiffed the smell of liquid spinach … I wanted to quit. So I did.

Just kidding. I committed to doing this article, so I persevered and downed the entire thing. By the time I got to my fourth one of the day, it wasn’t that bad.

The beginning of the second day was the worst. I could not stop thinking about solid food, but that feeling changed by midday, when my cravings went away.

By the third day, my cravings were completely gone, but I didn’t have any energy. I am training for a half marathon next month, but I could barely run a mile. So I thought to myself, would I rather be quickly skinny or functional?

By the end, I was down 5.5 pounds. Most of that was loss of will to live. But after one day of getting back to my regular diet, I gained two of those pounds back. And three days later, I was back to my normal weight.

My conclusion matches the common belief that a crash diet will help you quickly lose weight, but it will not jump start long-term results in becoming a supermodel. Although, cashew milk may be a nice backup plan.
