All juiced up

I have embarked on a five day juice cleanse.

Today is the end of day two and apart from a headache (lack of caffeine), things have progressed quite well.

Back in my LA days I did a few juice fasts. They were quite hardcore as only green vegetables were consumed. There was a morning salt water flush which required staying close to a bathroom and daily self-inflicted enemas which involved staying even closer. It wasn’t perhaps the most fun I’ve ever had but it was extremely effective.

With a week in London it seemed like an ideal time to do a juice cleanse, the only problem was, I had shipped my juicer to France where I felt it might get more use (not so far!)

I also felt that with a full time job it was going to be a challenge to juice enough to get through the days. One thing I found previously was that it took a lot of vegetables and a lot of juicing, it was really quite exhausting. What to do?

Well, it turns out that with a few clicks of a button, five days of frozen juices can arrive on one’s doorstep all ready to get started. I replaced one of the juices each day with soup (variety is good) and decided to try out the Juice Master Delivery.

And so here’s what you get… a ginger shot to get things started, three juices a day, a soup for dinner and an emergency juice food bar if one gets desperate.

On the grand scale of juice fasts, this is definitely for beginners as the juices combine fruit and vegetable (there’s probably far too much sugar) and if you eat a food bar, does it count as a juice fast?

It’s been quite a few years (I suspect seven) since I did something like this so I’m breaking myself in gently.

Three days to go!
