Cleanse: Kaeng RaengLength: 3 daysCost: $70Reviewer: Courtney Dunlop, Executive EditorI am a cleanse skeptic, meaning I usually pooh pooh them by saying things like, “If you don’t want junk in your system, just don’t eat junk.” And while I maintain that the body is highly effective at removing yucky stuff from its system, after a particularly sluggish and comfort-food-filled winter, I felt like I needed a bit of a jumpstart.The Kaeng Raeng detox cleanse claims to eliminate waste in the body, decrease cravings and improve digestion. You drink three shakes a day, made from a powder that contains freeze-dried fruit powder, non-GMO soy protein, vitamins and probiotics, that you mix with either plain water, or with fruit and ice for a smoothie. To alleviate hunger in between shakes, you can snack on fresh fruit and vegetables.I went the plain water route, and maybe if I had chosen the smoothie method the cleanse would have been easier for me. Only having fruit shakes for nourishment is rough. By the afternoon of the first day, I had a headache and couldn’t function as a human being. I broke and ate dinner.After that, I decided a modified cleanse was the only way I could do it. So, for days two and three, I had the shakes for breakfast and lunch and then ate dinner. I figure that’s better than not doing it at all.Maybe I didn’t have a lot in my system to clean out, but I didn’t really notice a difference with puffiness or energy levels. Of course that could be because I didn’t follow the cleanse like I was supposed to. But I will say this: The cleanse definitely reduced my appetite and decreased my cravings. I don’t find myself as starving for meals as I used to, and my sweet tooth has diminished greatly. So although going three days without eating meals is really tough, if your cravings and appetite are out of control, Kaeng Raeng could be just what you need.
