Recognizing that different folks have different needs, Juice Press offers a few types of cleanses. You can opt for a six-juice-a-day cleanse, with such flavors as Soul Garden and Glo, or you can combine a juice cleanse with a whole food regime, including soups and salads. You can also try a 16-hour cleanse, in which you stop eating after 4 p.m. and instead drink a couple of juices or smoothies, such as the Fountain of Youth (coconut oil, strawberry, blueberry, hemp protein, agave, banana, and raspberry).

Your coach might suggest such combos as the Grasshopper (apple, mint, pineapple, and wheatgrass), Killer XX (lemon, apple, ginger, and cayenne), and Mr. B (beet, orange, carrot, pineapple, and ginger).
