The week didn't feel like hardship one bit - the recipes were delicious and we took time for saunas, epsom salt baths, colonics, we walked, rebounded - it felt like a week of being indulgent!
Just two days in and I felt my body saying thank you! I felt more and more energetic throughout the week and couldn't believe that I had the focus to continue with two extra juice days.
Doing the Life Detox has given me a great head start to develop new eating habits and helped to clear out some old ways of thinking.
And, what great timing for us, that Amanda and Sandy's new book has just come out. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a detox clear out. I'd also recommended purchasing Amanda's prepared supplement box from Nutrigold (listed in the book). Physillum husk and bentonite clay - blurrrrrgh! Good luck :o)))
Overall highly recommended
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!!
I was amazed at the vast quantity of delicious food I had to eat during the detox. I was certainly never hungry and on a few occasions I had to leave out the oatcakes at lunchtime because it was simply too much food and more than I would usually eat.
On day two I got a migraine that lasted 72 hours. I wasn't sure if this was a detox side effect or not but it took some determination not to give up at this point. By day six I felt brilliant! My skin was glowing, my eyes were clear and my tongue was lovely and pink. I decided not to do the juice detox day on day eight because our kitchen tap broke on day seven and I couldn't wash up the juicer any more.
The result was that, after eating this vast amount of food (including 3 tablespoons of oil a day in salad dressings) I gained two pounds in weight. If I hadn't been exercising for at least 40 mins a day this would probably been more. It's taken me another month to lose this weight as well, which is annoying to say the least!
