If you are anything like me, by the end of the summer you have more Rosé than blood coursing through your veins. This year I calculated 50% rosé, 40% Aperol and the remainder a beer and miscellaneous spirits combo. You get the toxicity picture.
LUXURY DETOX PLAN
Feeling pretty miserable, I decided to invest (NOT a cheap option) in a three week luxury detox plan by Private DetoxBox. All foods and juices are delivered to your door ready to eat and drink. All I had to do was open the door, eat the food and not drink wine. Simple.
NO CHANCE TO FEEL HUNGRY
I opted for the three week Masterplan programme. Each week you enjoy one day of pure, freshly pressed juices, and the other days are a combination of juices, meals and snacks. The juices are surprisingly delicious, even the strange black activated charcoal number. There are six juices to drink in one day, so with three litres of liquid sloshing around inside you, you’ve no opportunity to feel hungry.
EVIL HEADACHE AND INTOLERANCE OF PEOPLE
All the meal and snacks are freshly prepared, vegan, highly nutritious and tasty. Actually, there was one hard tapioca based breakfast I really couldn’t stomach but other than that, I loved them all. Day 3 and 4 I had an evil headache and an intolerance of people, but it did pass quickly. Snacks such as dates, ketogenic chocolate and fresh fruit really help with sugar craving, and detox tea with daily ginger shots replace caffeine.
I WAS TOLD I WAS ‘GLOWING’ – THAT NEVER HAPPENS!
I definitely lost weight over the three week period, had a lot more energy, good, err, digestive health and slept well. The most surprising result for me though has how physically healthy I looked. On a number of occasions, people commented on how wonderful my skin was looking and I was even told that I was ‘glowing’. That never happens.
A BIT MORE ENCOURAGEMENT NEEDED
If I had to criticise, I could say that the labelling on the meals were sometimes confusing and I didn’t always know which meal was for when (deliveries are every two or three days). Also there are no motivational emails such as ‘just touching in to check you are loving this’. I would have appreciated a ‘hey tomorrow there is a vegan, low fat, high fiber, sugar free treat for breakfast – wahay`. That would have sent my saliva glands into overdrive. Perhaps.
Going forward, I do actually plan to embrace the vegan lifestyle. I will be allowing myself the occasional bacon sandwich and take away chicken bhuna but I see myself as more of a part time vegan. Or demi-vegan. All the Private Detox Box meals and drinks can be frozen so I now have a freezer full of juices and can benefit from a juice day at least once a week. The combination of foods provided I could replicate myself with a bit of effort, so this diet has certainly changed the way I will approach cooking for myself, and I’m thankful I came across it.
