I am the heaviest I have ever been (non pregnant) 9stone 11lbs. Which for my height (5ft 7″) is perfectly healthy but I don’t hold weight very well. I have a naturally small frame and any weight gain sits weirdly on my hips and tummy. Easy to hide in clothes but is really affecting my self confidence.
So I decided to do a five day juice cleanse from Fuel Station. I choose one with added collagen and it cost £109. (For 10% off your first order use code carasuthers excludes some of the meal packages)
Four juices a day, water and herbals teas allowed but no food.
Day one; I was so excited to be finally doing something about how I looked that I found day one easy. I wasn’t hungry and the juices taste nice so it was breeze. Day one is the easiest.
Day two; my mood was low today. I still wasn’t hungry but it dawned on me how much of my day centred around food. Thinking about food, preparing food and watching ‘come dine with me’ all had gone from my day. I was so bored.
Day three; this my friends was about as hard as it could get. I wasn’t hungry I was just angry. When they say it’s all in the mind this is true. I literally talked myself into eating beans on toast. I got myself to a point where I thought I would probably die in my sleep. Si commented along the lines of ‘You’re better than this’ so after practically licking my plate clean I went to bed and planned on how I would take the kids and leave him in the night. DAY THREE IS TOUGH
Day four; I woke up first, I was full of energy and I felt happy. Day four is where I turned a corner. I stepped on the scales to see if I was heading in the right direction (even with the toast mishap) and 3lbs had gone. This gave me the boost to see it through.
Day five; today had to be cut short because I had a meal planned but I stuck to my juices till the evening.
I can hand on heart say that it’s worth it. I’ve lost 4lbs. Which I’m delighted with as I don’t have much to lose and I cheated! I feel so much better. So much more energy. Feeding my body with all those nutrients for five days has made such a difference. I will do this again just before my holiday.
