Now I’ll be honest and say when Superfluid challenged me to their five day juice cleanse I had severe reservations about doing it. I thought long and hard about whether I was actually going to make it through the five days without feeling sick or having a no-coffee headache but I have to say I made it through just fine and I actually feel better, more proactive and reset after it. A few weeks ago I started on my weight loss diet and I knew that this would help me advance further so I decided to give it a go. For those of you who know me well you’ll know that I am a vegan so my first question to the team was will I feel sick because of the lack of nutrients and proteins but for once being a vegan worked to my favour as this particular cleanse is made only from plants based products and their entire range is vegan friendly!
I opted to start with the beginners pack as this is my first ever juice cleanse and for some added help I decided to get the hack pack also (I figured if I am going to do this I am going to do it right). I’ll admit the cleanse wasn’t without it’s down moments, I had a few no-coffee headaches and a couple of tummy pains but for the most part the juices and nut / seed mylks seemed to really help me cleanse and loose weight at the same time. After getting my first three-day pack on Friday, delivered right to my door, I planned out my days with 7 juices (one every 2 – 3 hours) and came up with a schedule of adding the hack-pack powders and clays so that my body got everything it needed.
After waking up on Saturday and starting my cleanse I began to see a change in myself and as I took a much needed relaxing break for the weekend and let the cleanse set in I found myself being reset both mentally and physically. By the time Monday morning rolled around I was on day 3 of my cleanse and I was well and truly into my routine of juices instead of food. I will admit Monday for me was the hardest of days (I’ma big foodie as I’m sure you know) and I had a short lived period of missing food but as I carried on I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel and the finish line was in sight. As my delivery arrived on Monday night and the team-member gave me an encouraging pep-talk my doubts flooded away and I moved straight back into thinking about the positives the cleanse had to offer.
This morning I woke up on my last day of the cleanse and as I worked my way through each of the final bottles I grew with anticipation to find out how my cleanse had worked for me. I know that emotionally and mentally I felt better, ready to take on my diet as I ween myself back on to food but the biggest challenge was ahead of me and as I finished my “dinner” juice, went for a walk and got on that scale I looked down intently with anticipation. I’m happy to say that I lost 4.3 kgs on my cleanse and that because of the strength this cleanse has given me I’m ready to work of the rest of my weight dieting and exercising, who knows I may even do another cleanse!
If you’re thinking about doing a juice cleanse then I can’t recommend this one enough, besides the fact that its plant based the helpful notes and emails along with the great tasting juices just don’t let you quit. They urge you to keep on striving for that amazing euphoria that I promise you will feel as you look down and see the end results. I’m not going to tell you that it’s not hard work, it is, but it’s so rewarding looking down and seeing what you accomplished with the help of Superfluid. Make sure you take a look at their website here: www.superfluid.me, and once you find the cleanse that’s for you tell them I sent you. I know the amazingly helpful team will help you with your transformation and give you a reset on life as much as they did for me.
