Taking the juices

Hunger vs. appetite
Are there any differences at all? – Yes, appetite describes a physical state in which you have the desire to eat something specific. Hunger, on the other hand, is an innate reflex and a physiological desire for food that protects people from starvation. During the juice cleanse we develop a heightened awareness of the true feeling of hunger and in the future we will be able to better distinguish when the body is hungry and when it feels appetite.

Longer walks, mobility training or yoga are recommended.
