Juicing: Does it work?

plenish-176Have you been embracing the New Year New You state of mind? Personally I've always been a sausage and chips at the local greasy spoon kinda girl as opposed to a salad one but with my best friend's wedding next month, for once I well and truly boarded the New Year New You wagon.

But which way do you turn? With so many fad diets and schemes out there, it's difficult to know where to start.

I opted for a Plenish juice cleanse which involved drinking six juices a day for three days; a level one cleanse.

My fears going into it would be that the juices would be foul tasting and that'd I'd be really hungry.

The first thing I realised when the juices arrived at The Lady HQ was that to do the cleanse you need to have a lot of space in your fridge; 18 juices take up quite a bit of space. Thankfully we have two fridges in the editorial department so that was fine but if I were to have taken the juices home I would have struggled.

With your juices you also get a glass straw (fancy!) and a booklet with tips on recipes and an advised schedule for your juices.

Plenish advise you have a hot water with lemon at 6am and then your first juice at 8am drinking one every two hours from then, with a break at 6pm. This is just a suggested schedule so from the off I binned the 6am hot water and lemon – I don't have to get up for work until there is half seven so there was no way I was getting up an hour and a half early for some water!

Other than that I stuck to the schedule.

So how did it go?

Well my first relief was that the juices (bar one) were quite yummy! Secondly, the only time I felt hungry was when I forgot my 4pm juice and had it a bit late. But thirdly and most excitingly was that after three days of juicing I've moved my belt buckle one extra notch – yay!

Being a complete cynic when it comes to this sort of thing I have to say I'm an absolute convert. I had loads of energy, slept well, my skin looked great (without makeup), and I managed to lose a few pounds. What's not to love?

And at just under £60 (per day) for the level one juice it's something I think I'll definitely be doing again.
