I love food, but there comes a point when my desire for eating fades away (I can’t even believe this!). After two consecutive weeks of overindulging steaks, fries and milkshakes and making unhealthy food choices, my stomach had reached its bound-to-explode period. My not-very-flattering tummy had gone at least double in its size and I could feel a little bump of my baby fat. (you know this when your stomach inflates like a balloon)
This is why I decided to rejuvenate my body with 7-day detox. It was the week of NO EXCUSE. I decided to cut meat, dairy and carb products out of my system.
Finally, after hoarding Victoria’s Secret brochures, I finally put it into good use. Not that I didn’t like Miranda Kerr, but Bitch! I planned to kick my butt and compete with your damn hot body.(seriously,I am talking about 7 DAYS, not even two weeks!)
I needed some source of an inspiration to push me through the past starving week. Some people want sweet motivational words, but I don’t. I needed someone who can be harsh on me, criticize, push and kick my ass. I even beg my friends to call me “FAT ASS” every time I get close to my fridge.
I followed Joe Cross’ 3-Day Weekend Juice Cleanse very strictly.
Fantastically, I survive! I didn’t die from starvation. After all, 7-day detox was not so bad. But I would not consider doing anytime soon!
Here is the photos of the cleanse I had to endure:
1)Breakfast Juice [Carrot Apple Ginger Juice]
-I have tried this before and it is definitely one of my favorite. Once extracting the juice, the color of soft orange whet my appetite. I know from the ingredients that this cleanse is bound-to-be-delicious! And I was RIGHT! The sweetness freshens up your morning with the heat of ginger kicks in after a few seconds. [score 9/10]
2)Mid Morning Juice [Mean Green Juice]
-You won’t probably believe me but this is super duper yummy. Once I sip and savor its taste, I completely forgot that raw cucumbers and celery stalks are in it. The sweetness of green apple obviously stands out (yes with just 2 apples). This juice is so healthy that when I’m drinking this, I just couldn’t stop thinking about my dream body! [score 8/10]
3)Lunch Juice [Gazpazo Juice]
-Confession#1: I abhor, hate and disgust this cleanse. Tomatoes makes it too sour. Onion and bell pepper make the smell too strong. The combination of everything makes this experience horrifying. Luckily, this is not my morning drink; otherwise, I would quit from Day1. [score 1/10]
-Confession#2: I drink it just once (I skipped this for 6days straight)
4)Afternoon Snack Juice [Citrus Inspired Green Juice]
(Urgg, I forgot to take a photo. I borrow this one from littlecookinthebigcity)
-This juice tastes neither terrible or terrific; it’s just another easy-to-forget drink. Indeed, I don’t really know how whether I like or dislike it. It sounds boring, doesn’t it? [score 5/10]
5)Pre-dinner [Sunset blend Juice]
(Sorry, I forgot to take a photo, too. I borrow this photo from itsbecauseithinktoomuch)
-Look at it, this juice looks horrifying. Root beets turns this drink completely in purple. I have shared most of this with my friends and they all like the sweet taste from sweet potato and of course, I hate the smell of bell pepper again. Therefore, a loser like me decide to throw away bell peppers and use everything else in the recipe. The result is fantastic. [score 7/10]
In the end, I’m glad I did this. Hopefully, I would shed some pounds from spring break, but who on earth will know. (I have never weigh myself for over two years! PHOBIA alerts!). I definitely feel fresher, lighter and leaner and most importantly, I am happier with the way my body feels.
I would encourage everyone who has never done detox to try this out and if you ever need some advice/consult, please tell me. I would be happy to help and motivate.
