I thought I’d feel something going three days without proper food. But, nothing, or at least not much, anyway. No tiredness, no energy loss, no hunger (except when it was getting up to dinnertime, but who doesn’t?), no headaches, no stomach upsets and no more grumpiness than usual. I didn’t miss chewing food and I didn’t have any mega-cravings for crisps or chocolate or any other junk, but maybe 3 days isn’t long enough for me to waiver? I did cop out of the 7 day plan, after all.
I came out the other end 3lbs lighter, with a flatter stomach and I might be imagining it, but my teeth look whiter, too.
Although the detox ended yesterday, I didn’t want to jump straight back into eating loads and put the weight back on immediately, so this morning I had a blueberry and blackberry smoothie with soya milk and for lunch I had the Popeye Power juice which is in the kids’ section of Juice Master Keeping It Simple and contains spinach, apple, pineapple, lemon and ice and as you can’t taste the spinach in it, it would be a good way of getting kids to eat something green and nasty other than bogies. Dinner will be tofu and stir-fried vegetables with Basmati rice.
I’m going to hopefully incorporate juicing into my lifestyle, not just because it’d be a waste of the £66 I spent on a juicer, but because I love smoothies for breakfast anyway (I’m not a fan of solid food first thing, so smoothies are perfect for me) and the juices are lovely (except for the ones with avocado), filling and nutritious enough for lunch.
Do I recommend it? Definitely.
