I started my day by seeing if I had lost any weight from day 1 and to my surprise I had lost 2lbs. As I am not really overweight, I just presumed I would loose the bare minimum, perhaps 1lb, but at least I would of cleansed my body. This spurred me on to complete day 2!
I knew this day would be a little harder as I was going out with my friend and her baby boy (Mason, he is 3 weeks younger than Harry). She was also doing the detox, but a 5-day (crazy lady), so at least I knew I wouldn’t be tempted to eat as neither of us would be able to stop for lunch.
I decided to make my morning juice and lunch juice so I could take this with me in a flask. They also recommend you make up another bottle of the H20 Detox, but I still had 500ml left from the day before so I didn’t bother.
Breakfast was Super Detox Smoothie, this included pineapple, blackberries, blueberries, bio-live yoghurt and ice. This was really thick due to the yoghurt, and in future I would only have half the amount of yoghurt as it was a little too much, and I ended up only drinking 3/4 of the pint.
Lunch was Dreamy Detox, at last a drink that didn’t include betroot or avocado, this included apples, lemon, ginger, celery, cucumber and ice. I made this up, and put in a flask to have whilst I was out.
In the rush of getting the kids ready and out the door, I left without my juice, and left it on the side. So whilst I was out, I just had a peppermint tea, which I think is allowed as it has no caffeine and is ‘low intervention’.
Jason Vale talks a lot about how your diet should consist of ‘low intervention’ foods, meaning foods that have had no or very little intervention from people. For example a ‘low intervention’ food would be fruit or veg as it is grown and sold without any intervention from people, unlike a supermarket fruit juice, that has been pasteurised, includes sweetners and has been processed to have a longer shelf-life.
Returning from my day out, I had my H20 Detox, and once the bubba was in bed, made my final drink of the day Beyond Detox.
Even though I had not had all my juices, I was feeling quite good. Jason mentions you would start to feel a ‘juice high’ once your body had got over the initial cravings. I think I had reached my ‘juice high’, and I was excited to see the results on the scales the next day!
Just Day 3 to go
