If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I was on a 3 day juice (only) detox program recently. In fact it was just a couple of days ago.
After all the good food I've been having since the Chinese New Year and my Eurotrip, the Schkinny Maninny detox program couldn't have come at a better time. When I was given the opportunity to test it out, I jumped right at it cause I know I wouldn't do it at my own will!
Before I go on, I would like to let you know that I actually survived the 3 days by just drinking juices! Not only that, I didn't feel hungry at all and I had energy to continue doing what I do on a daily basis. The juices actually tasted great despite it having some ingredients that I wouldn't eat normally. For example, I hate rockets, but in one of the bottles called Schkinny Super Salad, there's pear, apple, rocket and ginger. I thought it would be disgusting but it was surprisingly good and it fast became my favourite juice out of all the bottles.
All in all, even though the challenge for this program is rated at 3 which is 'Very Challenging', I didn't think it was that hard to do. The best part of this detox is that I felt full but not heavy and my tummy area was significantly flatter than usual. I also didn't get to finish the whole bottle of the juices as I got quite full from the previous bottles of juices. You are not obligated to finish the whole bottle anyway.
Not only that, the juices were all very FRESH, and is delivered daily to me, which is a big thumbs up.
The bad part for me though was the juices with beetroot in it. Those were a bit hard for me to consume as I personally don't like the earthy beetroot taste but I still consumed half of it. So it shouldn't be bad at all for those of you who likes beetroot.
Other than that, I thought the program was really good to just cleanse the body and give meat and carbs a break.
The program that I opted for was the
for 3 days only. You can go for the 5 days one if your up for it. I wasn't ready for sure! In this program, there are 6 bottles of juices daily for you to consume. Every morning at 6 a.m the friendly delivery man would deliver the juices for me. I love the fact that I didn't have to wake up and make the detox juices myself and I have no reasons not to follow the program as everything was prepared for me. With the program you also get a care pack which consists of Peppermint bags sachets, a small container of bath salt, a loofah mit and a mini tub of seeds (sent daily). I thought the seeds were helpful for me go through the day when I wasn't consuming the juices.
I also love how
emailed me every morning through out the 3 days to motivate me to not give up. It felt like I was doing the program with someone and not alone. The slip that they include in their daily juice delivery pack helps as well with Do's and Don'ts. It even tells you how or what you would feel on that particular day.
For me I only had really minor headache in Day 2 and Day 3 due to caffeine withdrawal and I probably gained a few pimples here and there due to the toxin disposal from my body.
I'm so so happy I completed the whole program without giving up half way.
