Frequently Asked Questions
FBB Cleanses help to “flush” toxins out of your system using all natural ingredients. By putting only natural foods into your system (full of nutrients and fiber), your digestive system has a chance to “reset” and use less energy. This gives your body more energy and stability to help kick off any weight loss plan, reduce inflammation, enhance sleep, alertness, functional energy, digestive health and provide strength to boost your immune system, which improves hair, skin, and overall health quality.

FitBitch Blends was designed by taking a great idea and concept for individuals to not only obtain the vital nutrients they need each day but to also help cleanse their bodies leaving them full of more natural energy, less brain fog, less toxins, reduced inflammation, clearer skin and improved sleep. Although juicing has been around for years and has many benefits there is a missing component many people do not think about. Vitamins and minerals are plentiful in juiced products but many lack certain vital macronutrients like fiber due to the juicing process. Fiber is a vital part of the detoxing/cleansing process. Fiber aids in detoxification, weight loss, fullness and blood glucose stability. We at FitBitch produce blends rather than the traditional juicing which allows all the fiber to remain providing a convenient way for your body to receive the vital nutrients needed to function at optimal levels.
It is no secret fact the United States is the leading in colon cancer, one of the two most preventable forms of cancer. The buildup of toxins in your body is the result of both external and internal sources. External toxins such as pesticides and pollutants come from our surrounding environment. They seep into the earth, water and air and can cause severe health problems. Internal toxins, however, come from within. They are the waste products that result from everyday physiological processes such as energy production and digestion. If not discarded, internal toxins can interfere with the function of our internal organs and lead to poor health. Because fiber is a powerful ally in your battle against toxins, getting plenty of fiber in your diet is essential. The average American consumes less then 10g of fiber daily. Center for Disease Control and Prevention daily recommendation is 25-35g (age/gender).
Diabetics, pregnant women, nursing mothers or if you are under regular care of a health professional consult with your health care provider.
Technically FBB Cleanse you shouldn't be ingesting anything (except the blends and water) all day, but we know that sometimes schedule, activity level and simply hunger pangs can get the better of you, particularly if you have never done a cleanse before and are used to eating large meals. If you absolutely must eat something then we recommend snacking on raw vegetables, plant based protein such as organic raw nuts, or quinoa(1/2 cup cooked max), drink some warm vegetable broth or even warm water with lemon. See Pre and Post Cleanse Page.
More nutritious and less to toxic food that is produced under organic conditions is structurally different from chemically raised and processed products. The reason is with the absence of pesticides and fertilizers plants boost their production of phytochemicals (vitamins and antioxidants) that strengthen their resistance to bugs and weeds.
No GMO - GMO stands for genetically modified organism. Science has been genetically modifying plants to grow them faster, with more flavors, and to be more resistant to disease. However, by eating this genetically modified food we are introducing DNA into our bodies that we’ve never encountered before. There is an ongoing concern that introducing foreign genes into food plants may have an unexpected and negative impact on human health.
Better for the environment. Organic farming reduces pollutants in ground water and creates soil that aids in plants growth.
Finally, it is FBB opinion that organic foods are healthier for you. The research on whether consuming organic food is healthier for people remains inconclusive. However, the USDA's own tests show that most non-organic produce contain residual pesticides even after washing. The long-term effects of consuming these pesticides have not been sufficiently studied, but they can't be good for you.
You can! We highly promote a vegetable and fruit cleanse. The difference in a FBB cleanse is the amount of nutrients and fiber that you are able to consume in a blend versus trying to “eat” enough to get the results. If this is your first time doing a cleanse of any kind you can try a FBB cleanse and consume lots of green veggies and minimal fruit between your blends.
FBB Cleanse plans allow you to choose the length of your cleanse ranging from 1 to 12 plus days. The best way to determine how many days you should try is simply take our Best for you questionnaire. This will not only give you a recommendation of FBB Cleanse plan but also how many days.
Do not engage in strenuous physical activity, even if you are used to it. Instead of a vigorous workout, consider yoga, Pilates, gentle stretching, swimming or walking. This is a great time to meditate, listen to relaxing music and engages in other stress-reduction activities. If your occupation or daily life calls for strenuous activity refer to Pre and Post cleanse example menu.
Absolutely! Having a FBB daily, especially Green Machine, will help you get more greens in your diet, increase your fiber with ease and help you maintain your results like reduced inflammation, weight loss, improved digestion and higher energy levels.
