Your Options : Juice Fasting or Clean Food

Juice Fasting

The renowned Jump Start High Octane juice fast option is by far our most aggressive and most popular option. Our proprietary combination of juicing and protein allows our clients the option to exercise.

Juice fasting is a natural and non invasive method of internal cleansing which results in a wide range of positive metabolic changes and experiences. The blood and lymph are detoxified. The release of toxins from the colon, kidneys, bladder, lungs, sinuses, and skin clears out complications that have arisen from a bad diet and unhealthy lifestyle. While juice fasting, the body is able to clean out its' systems effectively and safely.

Juicing is the best way to rapidly lose weight while ensuring abundant nutrition. In fact, the body responds to juicing in near miraculous ways. Cleansing and balancing body chemistry allows the body to adjust its metabolism and restores optimum physiology. Our juicing guests are able to participate in fitness activities, increasing their health benefits. While juice fasting, the stomach actually shrinks to its original size (the size of your fist). After three days of just ingesting raw fresh juices, broth and tea, you will lose most all cravings for solid food.

When you drink your food, your stomach gets a physiological rest, allowing the colon to shed old compacted and putrefied material that was waiting there to cause future disease. Our optional herbal colon cleansers are mild and effective and carry away accumulated waste - without invasive colonics.

First timers are constantly amazed at our user-friendly juice fasting program – which yields dramatic results – rapid weight loss, mental clarity, improved sleep, reduced stress and abundant energy. Juice fasters find our fruit and veggie juices the most delicious and satisfying of any they have ever tasted.

    "It has been more than 2 months since we left Ron, Julie, Daisy Lily, Adrienne, Argos and all the other lovely lively caring team at Jumpstart. We have not stopped praising them and their program. Going into the program, we were skeptical. The support and encouragement of the team and other program participants had us more active than we had been in 20 years... surprisingly we were able to stay on the juice ONLY program for 7 (that is SEVEN !!!) days, then an additional 5 days with Juice and 1 salad dinner. Back in the real world, Ron and Julie's technical explanations and guidance was on target to helping us stay on track while being "Practical not Perfect" -- their philosophy for success. Other things that helped were our Vitamix, their recipes plus Dr Furhams Eat for Health recipe book. Highly recommended for all ages and lifestyles... just make the time for yourself and them. It is worth it. Stayed February 2016, travelled as a couple."

    "I can't possibly say enough wonderful things about Jumpstart Costa Rica. The accommodations and the town were perfection, a very zen and relaxing experience. The beach was breathtaking and very close. The juice was delicious and I was never hungry. The best part however was the people. Daisy, Lily and Anita took wonderful care of us. Our every need was met and every question answered. The workouts were vigorous but always in a beautiful setting and they really worked! Thank you to Adriel, Fer and Megan for pushing us. My husband lost 10 lbs in one week and I lost 8! I highly recommend a quad sunset tour with Outback, a sunset cruise with Piscis, massages with Megan,and a salsa lesson with Adriel and Fer. We can't wait to go back next year!"

    "I spent 1 week detoxing at jump start. I loved my time there and wished I could've stayed longer. The staff, trainers, juicers and everybody else were amazing. I left feeling so good- lighter, energized and confident. I highly recommend it. I'm planning on returning next year."
