Let me preface this by saying I am not a lady who likes to skip meals. But with an American holiday on the horizon and a post Camp Bestival bloat still very much ongoing, the idea of a detoxifying, rejuvenating three-day juice plan took on an unprecedented appeal.
The idea is this: Purifyne deliver three days worth of organic, raw, cold-pressed juices, health-boosting supplements and plenty of tips and advice, taking the drama of a detox. Mothers who want to kick start a healthy eating regime can cleanse four weeks after finishing breastfeeding, and we hear glamourous mums, Victoria Beckham and Fearne Cotton, are both fans.
The benefits of a juice cleanse reach further than simply weight loss, with many users enjoying increased energy levels, brighter skin, shinier hair and a healthier outlook in the long-term. So, can someone who’s always thinking about their next meal really abstain for three days?
Actually, yes! With surprising ease too. The juices came in a multitude of refreshing (and mysteriously filling) flavours, staving off boredom, while the extra drinks (delicious spicy lemonade) filled in the snack gap quite nicely. I can’t pretend the green superfood powder mix was a basket of cherries first thing in the morning, but it was only a five second slurp, and the body brushing and long baths in the evening felt like a genuine treat.
After three days, my stomach is flat, I feel genuinely energised and I swear the whites of my eyes have increased their ‘pop’ . Best of all, in the days afterwards, I feel more mindful of what I put in my body, and genuinely enjoy making healthier choices to hold on to this happy, healthy feeling.
Look out, beaches of Miami, I’m coming for you!
