As soon as I got up I ran to the scales! Excited to see if I had passed the 4lb point, I had lost another 0.5lbs, meaning I has lost 4lbs in 3 days!!
I had woken up feeling great, and full of energy! I am not sure if that is down to the juice or because I was off to visit my best friend in Paris for the weekend!
My skin was looking great, not that I had ever had awful skin, but sometimes I struggle with small breakouts, blocked pores or just generally looking dehydrated!
I decided to take Jason’s advice and make a juice (opposed to my fry-up idea), I made my favourite the Beyond Detox, refreshing and light. Perfect for for the morning.
I felt almost nervous about eating, not because I didn’t want to regain the weight, but listening to Jason had really made my question what I am putting in my body. Even though a reason I had done this challenge was so I could indulge in Paris, I hadn’t expected for my views of food to change.
I would definetly be thinking about the food I put in my body, not being so restrictive I don’t have treats, but maybe reducing the amount of refined carbs and sugary goodies I indulge in, and snacking on more ‘low intervention’ foods.
During my trip to Paris, I found my stomach had certainly shrunk, I was getting full extremely quickly! I was also missing my juices, luckily we managed to find a super healthy eatery, and I got my fresh juice (carrot, orange and ginger) and it certainly helped the hangover.
On landing in Paris, my stomach felt the flattest it had been since before bubba was born, this was a lovely, rewarding feeling! On flying back from Paris I can say it was not feeling so flat, and even though I didn’t indulge anywhere near as much as I thought I would, and we did a vast amount of walking, I can certainly feel I have probably put 1 or 2 of those lbs back on! But the main thing is I had a fabulous weekend, and didn’t once worry about the calories!
So would I do it again? For sure! It was a great way to cleanse, loose a few pounds and get a flatter stomach perhaps before a big night out or just to up your energy levels. I am not sure I could or would want to do any longer than the 3 days.
I will be trying to continue with a juice every morning to kick-start my day, and if possible make a batch or two a week of the H20 Detox for my daily exercise drink. Why not give it ago! If you do let me know how you get on, I love hearing other peoples success stories.
Update: 6 days post detox, I have continued to start each day with the Dreamy Detox juice, and when possible eat a light lunch and a main meal, and I have managed to maintain my weight-loss.
