In short, my husband lost 8.6lb, and I lost 9.4lb and a few weeks later i'm only 1 lb heavier so I'm pretty chuffed.
However, the detox itself we found pretty hard work. Some of the recipes are ok, but some it seemed that there was a typo in the book. One of the recommended smoothies involved a peeled lemon, peeled orange, and 2 apples amongst other things. Trust me - that does not blend into a smoothie. It was like drinking sick and it went in the bin. (also, the book didn't mention cutting your citrus fruits up to remove pips which surely is essential?) One of the soups made way too much too, was very watery and nothing like the picture. However, apply a bit of common sense and you'll be fine.
We did use the psyllium husks too. If I can leave you with any advice - BUY THE TABLETS! I didn't realise that this stuff swelled up pretty much as soon as it hits fluid - urgh, it turns water into wallpaper paste (an experiment to see what it did). it makes your smoothie pretty horrible so if you can pay a few extra pounds, get tablets, i can't see why they don't recommend them.
Physically we felt fine. had 3 days of horrendous headaches, then felt pretty smashing towards the end of the week. And not once were we running to the toilet - that didn't happen at all. The juice fast day was very hard work - my husband I'm sure would have knocked his granny over for a chinese take away. But we did persevere and we both definitely felt it was worth it at the end. My husband has gained a few lb back but he has been weight training a lot since.
All in all, recommended, but I think you could cut a few corners. We dumped the smoothies on day 4 and just bought organic fresh juice. Also, look out some rye bread - much nicer than the alternatives of rice cakes or oat cakes!!
Overall highly recommended
There is a fair amount of preparation and fresh food buying but I doubled up on some of the meals to save some time. On average the evening meals were about 30 minutes and lunches about the same. I took a day off work mid week to try and get ahead of the game and to tick off some items of my detox list (this a list you make early in the week and it contains things you've wanted to do for a long time with the aim that you tick 1-3 off every day).
If you wanted to do everything the book suggests then I don't think you can work as well, but the diet plan is easily achievable. If I was scoring the diet alone I would give it a 4.90 star (I didn't like the quinoa).
I did buy the supplements (about £40) and found the clay revolting but apart from feeling like I was rattling (on 13 tablets a day) it was fine.
My only other recommendation is to start the detox on a Saturday or Sunday as you've then got the following weekend to look forward to. A weekend without wine was difficult to finish with!
If in doubt do it, do it, do it, my looks and energy have improved massively. I'm planning to do this again and to use the recipes in my own eating plan.
