“I ate so much last holiday, I totally want to detox this week!”
I’ve been telling this to myself since weeks! Every weekend after overeating I would think of detoxing for the next following days, except that those days never came. So last week, I finally tried my first ever detox. It wasn’t as big as I’m making it sound, just one day long!
I’ve come across various celebrities putting up products from Raw Pressery . I did some research and found out that their cold pressed juices are absolutely fresh and natural, which contain absolutely nothing more than the mentioned fruits and vegetables. No added sugar, in fact no added water too !
Their ‘cleansing’ plans sounded pretty fancy, so I opted for the Fibre Cleanse plan. I opted for this particular cleansing plan because it also had soups and not just juices, and if you follow me on my social media you’ll know my relationship with food ❤
MY ONE DAY SCHEDULE
(All juices/soups are 410ml)
The ingredients are listed on the bottle.
8.30 am – I received my pack
9.00 am – TRIM
Honestly, I was so scared to try this one because it has so many vegetables and I haven’t really had a vegetable juice. To my surprise, it tasted great ! It wasn’t bitter and tasted very pleasant.
11.30 am – LOVE
This particular juice tasted very very berry. I am not a berry person, I found it overly sweet and heavy. I only finished about half of it and kept it aside. For those of you who like berry flavoured foods would like it 🙂 This is just a personal opinion, the juice, otherwise, is good!
2 pm – TOMATO SOUP (Lunch)
This meal was my favorite ! It was so delicious and filling ! I was full after eating just half of the soup. I was totally satisfied with this lunch 🙂
4.30 pm – SHIELD
I really liked this juice since I drink carrot-orange juice every winter. So it reminded me of that ! The taste is dominated by that of ginger. This particular juice was refreshing after a lazy afternoon!
5.30 pm – ALOE VERA SHOT
So while doing this cleanse, you cannot do any heavy exercise, just some light walking. Aloe vera shot is just something ‘extra’ hence I had it before I went for a walk, just some pre-workout energy you know?
7 pm – MIXED VEGGIE SOUP
I messed up a little here because I was still not hungry so I ate this around 7.20 pm. The soup was kind of bland, I expected it to taste bitter. I’m glad it wasn’t ! 🙂
9.30 pm – LIGHT
By this time, I had a terrible headache. I took this bottle of juice and could not even open it (Energy, where were you?). I had 2 sips of this juice. Don’t get me wrong, it tasted nice with a dominant taste of guava but I could just not have juices anymore. And before my head gets worse, I had 2 slices of toast.
My experience with the detox taught me about will power. I do not pass a day without my cold coffee, but I controlled. Yes, I did have 2 toasts reluctantly by the end of the day but it was also my first time of not eating food the entire day! As we know, a lot of Indian festivals followed by various communities have fasting. Fortunately or unfortunately, mine doesn’t, so I have never fasted. Most of you probably have, so you may find it easier. But for me? I was out of energy by the end of the day.
Would I suggest you to do it? Sure. Whats the harm in trying ! Also, it makes your bloating go and flushes out toxins from your body. To be on the safer side, try it on a holiday so you aren’t drained out 🙂
Also, please don’t consider that drinking fruits and vegetable juice everyday is a short cut to weight-loss ! There is no short cut to losing weight, and liquid diet is an unhealthy path. Please choose to do these cleanses once a week or so.
