Back in June I tried one of those detox cleanse that we’ve been seeing everywhere for the past years now. I have to admit I was a bit reluctant to try them and hesitant as to what would be the actual benefits of it.
However, it was the first time I felt bloated for weeks and even months! I think it was because all the travel I’ve been doing for the last eight months and all the eating out plus no excersising at all. I know, shame on me.
Anyway, I decided to give it a try. After all, I didn’t have much to lose. As I was a beginner on this cleanse world, I decided the one day cleanse was enough for me. After checking many different companies offering these cleanses packs, I decided to go with “Press London” which offers cold pressed juices packs. They have recently added soup cleanses as well, so you can still detox yourself on winter and have a warm and nice soup. One of the reasons I chose Press London was because I found the co-founders story so inspiring. But truth be told, it was also one of the cheapest juice packs I could find. I also wanted to visit an actual store ao I was really happy when I saw that they had a stand in Spitafields market. There I went to seek advice as a total beginner and completely lost bird in this all-supper-freaking-healthy world.
My first one-day cleanse detox was a success in terms of completing it with no struggles. I drank the eight juices through the day and they were all good. I liked ones more than others. I’m not a fan of vanilla, so that one wasn’t my favorite but I have to say they did tasted goooood.
I wasn’t hungry at all and didn’t have any peanuts or almonds, as they suggested me to have if I was feeling weak. Actually, there were periods where I actually fancy drinking more, but I forced myself to finish all the eight bottles.
The cleanse helped me with my bloated-self and I felt great afterwards. I’ve seen people who have also done the cleanse saying their skin was flawless and better han ever, bla, bla, bla. That might be true and maybe the cleanse help people in different ways but for me, I was just happy that my bloated tummy was gone.
I’m sure I’ll try this again and maybe ill swap to the winter-y soup cleanse.
I’ll be curious to know, have you tried this type of cleanse before? How did it work for you?
Hope you like it!
