Recently, after the holidays, Chris and I went on an detox cutting out Gluten, Sugar, Salt, Alcohol, Red Meat and Dairy. The hardest thing for me to kick was sugar. After lunch around 3:00pm everyday I would have the biggest cravings for sugar. We were supposed to cut out caffeine but we’re not crazy.
The detox went for 7 days and during that we happened to start juicing.
Oh My the results. I am already thin framed so take that into account with my results. But, 5 days into the detox I noticed a major change in my skin. The skin on my legs in particular had firmed up A LOT and the cellulite I had acquired over the past few years vanished. I didn’t know what to expect from the detox other than feeling healthier so these results were a very happy surprise.
Being blown away with my new body I did some quick research and found out that the detox I was on combined with the vegetables I was juicing combats cellulite. What are the odds that I followed a cellulite detox without even realizing it and then noticed results on my own without being told to watch for anything. It still boggles my mind.
I know you’re wondering what the detox is and what I am juicing. Here is the detox.
And here is what I was juicing:
- Roughly 2 cups of Spinach
- 3 Big Kale Leaves
- 1 Carrot
- 1/2 a Lemon (w/0 rind)
- Slice of Ginger
- Topped with Martinelli’s Apple Juice
- I’ve since added
- 1/2 a Cucumber
- 1/4 Beet Root
My skin looks better than it ever has and I have energy all day.
I use this juicer that is on sale now on Amazon Prime for $48.32. Link Here.
I have gotten my mother, my best friend, my cousin and her husband all on the detox juice diet and I am waiting to hear their results.
