We’ve all been through the phase where we say, “I’m on a diet”. Let me tell you this now: dieting sucks when you don’t know how to do it right! When I didn’t know the proper way on dieting, I felt like a piranha was eating it’s way through my belly! I later learned that the best way to diet was to constantly eat but in smaller portions. Before I started eating healthy though, I wanted to clear my body of all the burgers, burritos, alcohol and sweets in my body. I took a big step and went with a detox. I decided to try out Juju Cleanse because a lot of people I knew had tried it out. I was a very brave kid and ordered the 3-day level 1 detox.
I got my bag and it was pretty cute because the juices came in a bag with an ice pack. Everything was smooth sailing until I had to go to an event I hosted in Shangri-la Makati. They told me I could order anything. So I did. Not. I wish. I just got spring rolls and smoked salmon. And yes I knooooooow I’m not supposed to be eating on a detox but I couldn’t help it! I was in Shang with yummy food right in front of me! Okay, enough of excuses. My first day of my detox didn’t go so well because of that.
I made sure that I would religiously follow my detox for day two and three. My prayers were answered. Or rather, I was just abiding by the rules of thy detox. It was easier for me to do it since I was just at home.
What I hated most about it was that I couldn’t work out. It said in Juju Cleanse’s FAQ that a light workout like yoga would do but I was afraid that I wouldn’t feel well after doing that so I just decided to bum and play games all day. That actually helped because I wouldn’t fell that I was hungry. I just kept downing that juice like anything. Of course, I did like some of them and others were just… BLEH. Yucky. I felt like I wanted to throw a bottle at the wall because I just couldn’t take it (violent much?!). It was either really that bad or my taste buds just weren’t used to the flavor.
Spicy Limonada – This was probably the best one. If you guys know the Master Cleanse, this is that in one bottle. I didn’t have a hard time gulping this drink down.
Red Giant – I hated this drink!!! To the bones!!! At first it was bearable but then there was just something in it that made me want to scoop it out of my belly HUHU
Green Bomb – Just so you all know, I’m a GULAY GIRL. I love my veggies. I can eat veggies all day everyday. I eat veggie burgers, pizza, you name it! That’s probably why I didn’t have a hard time drinking this. I loved that it was the first drink of the day too.
Right after my 3rd day cleanse, I ate at recovery food. HAHAHAH! I didn’t eat like a monster because I didn’t want to bloat so I just had the bangus dish, without the rice of course. Well, maybe I did sneak in a couple spoonfuls of rice.
It was an experience doing this detox but I don’t think I could do another 3 days of it. I think one day of the detox would’ve been better for me. On the plus side, I have a lot of cool bottles that I could still use too! Haha!
