So last week Gary & I took the plunge & decided we were going to follow the Jason Vale (Juice Master) 7lbs in 7 days super juice diet. We have both put on weight and I know I just felt awful – sluggish, always tired etc. We have done the juice diet before & although found it hard had good results.
Day 1 -
Enjoyed my morning juice, 1st one in months! Got hungry pretty quickly and my hunger never really went away all day. Between my 2nd & 3rd juices I felt drained and fuzzy-headed. Was pretty miserable & just wanted something nice to eat! Felt quite sick after my last juice of the day. Went to bed early.
Day 2 -
Woke up with a lovely flat stomach! After 1st juice was not hungry again for ages and had more energy than yesterday. Not lots but pretty constant. The nausea has gone but still have slight feelings of hunger. The skin on my face is breaking out quite badly! I missed my last juice as I couldn’t be bothered making it (!) & I didn’t feel too bad, but I soon felt very hungry and wished I had made it after all. I had a detox bath tonight using sea salt & bicarbonate of soda as I read that the nausea from yesterday was probably caused by toxins being released in my system.
Day 3 -
Woke up with a very slight headache which was gone pretty much straight away as soon as I got up. Slightly more energy than yesterday – constant all day. Unusual not to have the energy highs & lows from eating lots of sugar. I could introduce a yogurt based banana smoothie today which was a nice change and felt like it filled me up a bit more.
At the start of day 4 I weighed myself and was sooo pleased to see that I had lost 6lbs! Made it all worthwhile! Renewed energy for the rest of the 7 days now!
Day 4-7 will be posted soon along with my total weight loss for the week!
