As we get older, it’s important to live well and be healthy. I’m super lazy to exercise and I eat lots of unhealthy food cos I snack a lot. But I’ve been trying to live healthily of late by going for pilates, gymming with Daniel and detoxing once in awhile. So I’m gonna share with y’all my 3 days detox journey. Hopefully y’all will try it out as well cos I really saw a difference!
So I signed up for a 3 day detox program at www.joob.sg
. They have 1-5 days programs, depending on what you want. 3 days program’s the most popular one!
I chose Joob because it’s 100% organic, fresh, cold-pressed juice. It uses the best juicer to ensure maximum nutrients are extracted.
My juices came in a cooling box to preserve the freshness. So thoughtful and convenient!
So that’s 6 bottles for one day of detox! 18 for 3 days. I know I know, it sounds a lot and intimidating but just think of a flatter stomach of 3 days of detoxing (: Besides if you’re a fruit/vege lover, you’re gonna enjoy drinking these!
So basically, I had to abstain from alcohol, coffee and have plenty of rest pre-detox. On the day of detox, I just had to drink the juices according to the number sequence every 2-3 hours. It’s suppose to replace my solid meals, and I have to keep myself hydrated with water in between each bottles.
List of ingredients in each bottle pasted at the back.
Bottle 1 : Apple, cucumber, spinach, celery, kale, lemon
Bottle 2 : Orange, pineapple, cucumber and mint
Bottle 3 : Apple, cucumber, celery, spinach, kale, lemon
Bottle 4 : Lemon, agave, filtered water, cayenne pepper
Bottle 5 : Carrot, pear, beetroot, ginger, lemon
Bottle 6 : Cashew nut, agave, vanilla extract, H2O
I have to admit it wasn’t easy at all. Some of it tasted too vege-ish to me but still manageable. My favorite has to be no.4 though, it tastes like lime juice! And, I had a lot of food cravings during the detox program. Like I was craving for mixed rice and fries on day 1, and….durian on day 2 hahaha! It was tough curbing these cravings but I did it anyways and completed my 3 days detox program.
In the process of it, I pooped a lot and had pimple breakouts which were ways of my body releasing toxins. Not everyone has the same way of detoxing, some has runny nose or fart a lot. It differs! But I really do see a difference in my tummy! It became flatter after all the pooping. Also, I can sleep better and earlier now which is AWESOME.
Here are benefits from detoxing :
I would definitely do it again, maybe once every 3-6 months? It certainly feels good to let out all the toxins in my body.
