So I know what you might be thinking, what about day three? Well, I decided not to continue with the last day purely because it didn't think I was going to benefit from it at all, and it didn't seem worth another day of hunger. I weighed myself after day two and had lost one more lb, so a total loss of 4lbs which was more than I was expecting. As my body had gotten used to the routine of just having juice, I knew this wasn't going to change too much in one more day. I had also read loads of reviews about how energetic and great they felt on the second day, but this wasn't the case for me. I didn't feel any less energetic, but did get quite tired towards the end of both days and just generally not myself.
So why did I decide on a juice cleanse in the first place?
- To kick start my metabolism
- To generally feel a bit healthier
- Weight loss
- To make myself realise that I don't need to eat as much food, and I can survive on very little
So did I manage my goals?
- I'm not sure on this one to be honest. I hope it has helped.
- I'm not sure I can say I felt significantly healthier, but taking in a lot of fruit and not having any carbs or refined sugar will always be better for you
- This one is an obvious yes, 4lbs lost but I'm sure some of this will go straight back on once I've eaten solid food
- This one is a definate yes. I realised that feeling hungry isn't the end of the world, and a lot of the time it is because I am thirsty. It also made me realise that I don't need to eat at much food to feel full, and I also don't need to eat just because it is a meal time.
All in all, I'm glad that I've done it but I don't think it is something that I'll be racing to do again. To carry on with my health kick, I'm going to go onto the 5:2 diet as of next week which I will be blogging about.
