It was my 1st successful attempt after 2 failures so I have to say, 3rd times a charm :)
A lot of friends have asked me about it, so I'm going to write a comprehensive post about why, what and how I did my little juice fast and maybe how you can make it work for you too!
Brigette's 3 Day Juice Detox.
Why I did it.
People I social with know I love nipping on good food, tapping out the occasional cigarello, swirling brandy and popping me a shot (or 9) of tequila. However, when I'm not sociallizing, I eat very light low carb meals, sprint 3 times a week and down 2 gallons of water daily.
However, lately I've been getting migraines when I don't take my black coffee on time and find myself catching flu's/coughs quite easily, a sign of weakened immunity. So I embarked on this juice detox to give my organs a much needed rest to detoxify while pumping my system full of vitamins and enzymes to rejuvenate! It was also to go cold turkey on caffeine to break the addiction cycle.
And as expected, on any fat free, lowered calorie regime, I lost weight too and came out with a nice gleaming complexion and feel hellava lot lighter from no water retention (ZERO Salt consumption does that)! But realistically, I don't expect the weight loss it to last fully when I gradually go back to my usual eating. But it has made me feel like my body is properly detoxified for efficiency so anyone hoping to lose stubborn water weight/inches healthily for a runway show or wedding, you can do this too!
What I did.
Basically, that's it.
I got this recipe from the slimming centre, BizzyBody when I did a trial there (So you don't need to spend anything to diet from home!) It was made by nutritionists to help people lose weight and get rid of toxins. I just juiced everything after my own research because I am more for cleansing than weight loss.
I was initially hesitant about the pineapple in the morning as I have a tendency for gastric but I had NO problems at all and if anything it really woke me up!
