Lose weight ?
Keep fit ?
Are these on your resolution list for 2014?
Juicing for me is an easy way to lose weight and kick start your diet. I have completed juice diets several times over the last few months, the longest being a ten day reboot which, I blogged about last year.
Well it seems like January is juicing season so I thought that I would just do a short post with some things that could help you.
I am so glad to have made it to the end, I have to admit there were times that I thought about giving up but I am so glad I persevered.
Making the last few juices in the morning was a bit of a scrabble of the fruit and vegetable left. I did go to Out of the Woods for a catch up at lunchtime, to my surprise they do juices to although the one I had tasted more like a slushy as it was made with frozen fruit and blended, not great and I left most of it. The lemongrass tea however was very refreshing.
At the end of the day I treated myself to a ‘create your own’ juice at Millies. I decided to combine apple, pineapple and beetroot it was surprisingly ok.
I have to admit it has been hard writing about food and not eating it, so I will be have to start tackling the backlog of posts I have. I will definitely incorporate juicing into my diet in the future as all of the juices tasted pretty good and ‘refreshing’ as my Dad put it.
I am so glad to finally be able to reduce my caffeine intake. I think this is the biggest change from the whole experience that will make a major difference in my life.
I think following my top tips for juicing helped a lot so if I have inspired you to give this a go check them out.
I have to stress that this reboot was more around giving my body a detox and not entirely about weight loss, but any loss is a perk.
Finally hit the scales to discover after ten days I have lost 12lb its been great that some many people have commented on my glowing skin (have to stress I am not pregnant).
I would have to say that the hardest day on the reboot was the third one. This was the same when I did the five day reboot. I think if you get over this, you will be able to do as many days as you like.
The one thing that I am looking forward to tomorrow is a massive pack of mango, not juiced.
I can’t believe I am so close to the end.
This morning was pretty easy as I made the juices yesterday and they were in the fridge. All I had to do was pour them into some containers and go.
Today has been the first day where I have actually been able to finish a two litre bottle of water. Drinking more water is definitely something that I will carry on post reboot.
