A week without Juice Revolution

So last week Friday, I finished my five day super juice cleanse with Juice Revolution.

This week has been a tough one. I adapted easily to eating solid foods - I got full really quickly the first few days.

I really didn't and haven't felt the need to eat sweet stuff. Prior to my juice cleanse almost every dinner meal would end with either a dessert or some sweet or chocolate - or all three!

I have genuinely craved both fruits and vegetables...
I can only deduce that my body - having gotten so much nutrients during the five day course of juices that it -  feels the need to have them regularly.
This has meant my eating habits have definitely improved.

I also managed to stay coffee free for 10 days in total. I have since had three cups in total and I can safely say - I do not need my morning cup.
I start each day, as I did during my juice cleanse, with a cup of hot water with half a squeezed lemon. I really enjoy this daily routine.

My body and my mind missed the juices though. The convenience is amazing. I own a juicer - but it really does take too much time - buying and then juicing the fruits and vegetables.

I started missing meals again this week. Breakfast is always a tough one if I have an early shoot or meeting.

I needed to find a solution!

Insert: Juice Revolution's Lifestyle Juice Range!  

So much happiness!

They come in two different sets of 10.

Box 1

Box 2

Perfect for those that want to give the juices a try before committing to a full juice cleanse.

And even more perfect for those suffering from withdrawals of not having delicious cold-pressed juices in their life after doing a cleanse.

Basically I can now grab one of these if I'm running out and don't have time to make or get breakfast. Also, if I am ever feeling hungry between meals, the lifestyle range is the perfect "snack" juice.

My juice cleanse was couriered to my door. With my two lifestyle boxes, I opted for an airport pick up.
A slightly cheaper option, possibly, if you live close to the airport and don't mind a drive.

2 x lifestyle boxes

Convenience-wise, I would in future get them delivered to my door.

I picked up my Lifestyle box yesterday and today I got to have my first juice. My body felt at ease again. I could almost hear it saying - 'Thank you for being good to me!'

20 bottles of love

What started out as a five day juice cleanse has definitely turned out to be a lifestyle change for the better for me.
And this Lifestyle Juice range from Juice Revolution fits my new lifestyle perfectly!

My Juice Journal : Day Five

I made it! I more than made it. I did it and I feel amazing.

It's Sunday morning as I type this. My five day super juice cleanse ended on Friday.
I decided to see how my first day post cleanse went before posting this journal entry.

I took a look at my last batch of juices and realized how far I have come.

my last day of juices

My Friday morning started with a photoshoot on a hot Durban day on Umhlanga Beach. I had my last "apple zinger" - quite an emotional experience - before heading off to my shoot, grabbing my first juice for the day.

"Berry Smooch" - a fruit and veg smoothie to start my day - very refreshing and tasty. Perfect for the beach.

After my photoshoot I headed back home, just in time to have my next juice - "Well Peared"; either day five has awesome tasting juices or my taste-buds have adjusted to the taste of nutrition.
It's as if my body craves what the juices provide.
My overall sense of taste seems heightened and when I drink the juice I can almost feel all the ingredients perfectly intertwining in my mouth.

For my next juice, I headed back to the beach - the weather in Durban was all sunshine. I sat on the sand and reflected on my juice journey.
It's been an experience I would advise all those I am close with to seriously consider. It's an investment in your overall well-being.

it's been quite the journey

By the close of the day I had consumed my last "apple pie" and my juice journey had ended.
25 juices later, what seemed like it would be challenging, honestly seems like something I could continue doing if I wanted to.

I would like to thank Fiona, owner of Juice Revolution for this amazing product, for her knowledge and her encouraging and informative daily emails. The full Juice Revolution package is truly a "5 star" service of your mind, body and soul.

Waking up on Saturday with renewed energy I still have not had any coffee. I think I will lay off that for a bit longer.
It was weird eating solid foods. My portion sizes have definitely decreased and I feel full quicker.
I definitely have a heightened sense of taste. I can taste the oils and the sugar in my foods.
I thought I would be craving coffee and a medium rare rib-eye steak, instead I am craving a good sized salad and fresh fruit.
Also, I have no desire to eat sweet stuff.
Cake, sweets and chocolate - I just don't feel the need to have any.

Many people have asked me if the cleanse has made me lose weight - I'm not entirely sure as I did not weigh myself before starting.
My reason for doing the juice cleanse was more about ridding my body of toxins than weight-loss. A few people have seen me and said I look leaner and my skin seems more radiant. Both good signs - so I think I would attribute them to the juice cleanse.

Oh, before I forget - another positive that came with doing the five day juice cleanse was that having all my juices for the week resulted in me having a lot more time on my hands. I was able to be much more productive. No prepping food and cooking. No deciding what I would eat each day, for each meal. No need to head to the grocery store and buy ingredients for my meals.
This was pretty cool and something I didn't really consider before embarking on this journey.

I will be following up with one last Juice Revolution post this coming Friday. This will just be to update you on my week of adjusting back to normal life after my five day cleanse.
