9:15 am: Say good morning to juice Number 1: carrot, apple and ginger – a tasty start to the day.
I slurp down this olive green mixture, which is filled with cucumber, kale, broccoli, celery, lime, lemon, pear, spinach and mint before treating myself to last night’s episode of Downton Abbey. Surely The Dowager Countess of Grantham would never dare touch a juice cleanse!
1:45 pm: The lingering smells of delicious lunch in the office are almost too much for me to bear. I have to go outside for some fresh air and a quick chat with my bestie, Boo, for a much needed mental break.
5:00 pm: I am on my last juice of the cleanse – hooray!! I feel drained and my thoughts keep returning to what I should have for my victory breakfast tomorrow.
7:30 pm: After having the last sips of juice Number 5 at my desk I leave the office feeling tired, deflated, and far from excited about finishing my packing. Why has day #3 been the hardest? I look at the weather forecast in Botswana to cheer myself up. Nothing like knowing you are sunshine bound in less than 24 hours!
9:45 pm: I sip on my last detox tea as I finish packing. I cannot wait to wake up tomorrow and treat myself to a well-deserved chewable breakfast.
My final verdict: This new Soulmatefood Perfect Cleanse is straightforward and majority of the juices taste good. I lost 6 lbs in 3 days and my skin is glowing like I have undergone a week’s worth of facials at a fancy spa. After my first breakfast, which was the best bowl of granola I have ever tasted, I went for a quick morning run and felt absolutely incredible, like a new lease of life had been injected into me. If you’re looking for quick results and have the willpower to stick to juice only for a few days, then I would definitely recommend this cleanse.
