Salma Hayek Has a Juice Cleanse

Not Another Celebrity Cleanse: Salma Hayek's Cooler Cleanse

You've heard about the Lunch Box Diet; well, now there is the Cooler Cleanse. And this one has some celebrity backing. A veteran of the juice fast cleanse, Salma Hayek has used the regimens for more than a decade to prepare for big events, from walking the red carpet to walking down the aisle. The curvaceous actress paired up with long-time friend and juice master Eric Helms to bring her juice cleanse to the masses. That is, if you live in New York and want to drop $58 a day on fresh-pressed juices.

The Cooler Cleanse offers cleanses that last from three to five days, and in FAQ section, the company tells us that "You will consume less than 1,200 calories each day during the 3-Day Cooler Cleanse and the 5-Day Cooler Cleanse." I have always heard that 1,200 is the minimum number of calories required for the body not to go into starvation mode. The five flavors of juices (a green juice, a grapefruit mint, a red juice with beets and apples, young coconut water, and nut milk sweetened with dates), are all freshly pressed overnight and delivered to clients by 6 a.m. Cooler Cleanse also offers a four-course raw food cleanse at $62 a day — you pay a little bit more to have something to sink your teeth into.

Although I am a fan of coconut water and that grapefruit mint mixture sounds tasty, I am not a fan of juice cleanses. But what about you? Would you try Salma's cleanse?

Save yourself the money and buy yourself some veggies and a juicer. At the very least you won't be throwing your hard earned cash away on some celebrity-endorsed fad.

I agree. It is as right to be skeptical about the 1200 calorie a day "starvation mode" theory as it is to be skeptical about a juice diet. Everyone has to try what works best for their body and metabolism. Everyone is going to be different. There is not one universal law or rule that applies to everyone, so do your own research and find out yourself...

Pass. Make your own green juice. Get a juicer/blender/whathaveyou and throw in veggies--kale, broccoli, spinach, celery, carrots. Sometimes it can get a little "green tasting" and you can add more carrots to make it a little sweeter, but after a while, you don't really notice. Or, tomatoes, fruits (bananas, strawberries, blueberries), and a splash of cranberry juice. NO need to pay for what you already have!

I will say I agree with Manady in one respect. I have never understood, or been able to find an explanation of, how "they" came up with the universal 1200 calorie number. How can 1200 calories be the minimum for EVERYONE to prevent the mysterious "starvation mode"? How can my 4'10" friend whose BMR is about about 1200 calories, and my 6 '2", 200lbs boyfriend have the same minimum caloric requirement to prevent their metabolisms from slowing? I just don't buy it. I think the 1200 calorie minimum is kind of a crock. People need to figure out what works for them.

I would do the type of "cleanse" where you focus on eating organic whole foods because I think we should all cut the processed crap out of our diet from time to time. But I wouldn't do one where you drastically cut calories and drink only liquids. I would be very grumpy.

Or spend $58 a day on JUICE?! I'm surprised no one has picked up on the ridiculousness of this. Unless I am drinking 25+ juices a day, I'm pretty sure it's not worth that kind of money. It's JUICE with some fruit flavoring.

Just another marketing gimmick, there is no need to cleanse your colon by drinking some juice, your body does it naturally.

Actually, the main focus of a cleanse isn't to lose weight (you mainly lose water weight and will put that back on very soon afterwards). The real goal is to give you body, mainly your digestive system, a break so it can heal. We put a lot of crap into our bodies and while we heal and self-clean sometimes our system just doesn't get the rest time it deserves and needs (like when you drink alcohol to excess one night and then load up on coffee the next day to help with the hangover). You can detox for as long as you like, really, so long as you actually EAT, usually lightly cooked veggies and natural foods that support your body and don't cause undue stress. Juice cleanses are great but only for a max of 5 days. In that time you get a whole bunch of nutrients from the juices without your digestive system having to do much, if any, work. More than 5 days, though, and your body will go into starvation mode. So yeah, juice cleanses (fasts, detox, whatever you want to call it) are good in moderation, but not for weight loss.

That doesn't sound very safe to me. It sounds too much like those super-low-calorie diets that celebrities are always doing to drop weight quickly. I'm guessing that you'd probably lose 5-10 lbs right away, but you'd gain it back once you ate again. But I guess if you have $58 a day to drop on juice, more power to you. It's just more money for Salma, I guess.
