So recently I thought I needed to shed some weight as I gained quite a bit over the festive periods hence when I discovered Antidote – a juice cleanse programme , I knew I had to try it. I have tried a couple of juice fasts before and they have worked perfectly well for me so I was more than ready for this.
There are five types of cleanse to choose from – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Master and Active cleanse. And you can also choose from 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 day cleanse.
I went for the 5 day Master Cleanse which is a 100% vegetable cleanse that washes your system with nothing but pure nutrition.
I allowed a couple of friends to try out the juice and they actually LOVED IT (yes, even guys)! The taste was more of an interesting one to me. I liked that when I drank it, it made me feel healthy, clean and refreshed all at the same time however the taste probably took me some time to get used to it. Thank goodness for the beetroot juice and almond nut milk that made it better! The juice texture was smooth and tasted quite nice after getting used to.
The first day was ok but by the third day, I got rather uneasy and wanted to eat and munch something. I did try not to eat anything and only resorted to drinking soup when I needed something savoury. Each day comprises of 6 bottles of juice. Each bottle is titled with the number, name and ingredients of the juice. Find out more information on each bottle below:
1 – Mt. Fuji (Skin Hydration) :: Japanese Cucumber, Romaine, Spinach
2 – Crater Lake (Body Recovery) :: Pure Coconut Water, Japanese Cucumber, Romaine, Mint, Parsley, Lemon
3 – Mount Eden (Body Detox) :: Japanese Cucumber, Celery, Romaine, Mint, Parsley, Lemon, Ginger
4 – Mount Eden (Body Detox) :: Japanese Cucumber, Celery, Romaine, Mint, Parsley, Lemon, Ginger
5 – Angel Falls (Liver Cleanse) :: Carrot, Beetroot, Lemon, Coconut Oil, Ginger
6 – Original Almond Milk (Heart Health) :: Raw Almonds, Alkaline Water
On the 3rd day of a 3-5 Day Cleanse, the 5th drink will be replaced with –
5 – Charcoal Coconut (Toxin Absorbing) :: Activated Charcoal, Pure Coconut Water, Lemon
I lost about 2-3kg after the entire cleanse and am already thinking of trying out more! If you are new to juice fasting, you might want to try out the beginner cleanse however if you think you are up for a challenge, why not go straight for the Master Cleanse like I did? You might be in for a treat! Order through here.
