Ok, you keep hearing people talking about detox, detox and detox. So, what is the big deal anyway? Does this give immediate results? Maybe. But with all the hectic schedules and tempting food pics your favorite food blogger posted on Instagram 2 minutes ago, can you still do the detox? Hmm, probably not. Then, what should you do?
When I was living abroad (especially Shanghai) I was super exposed to delicious yet unhealthy food all the time! Consequently my skin was in a terrible condition (acnes, dull and dry) due to lack of fruits and veggies consumption. Until I was introduced to juice cleanse program. Totally a game changer! So every time I feel like my body's toxicity level has built-up, I detox. These are the common symptoms of high toxin level:
Feeling cynical about this juice cleanse? Don't be! Not all juice is created equal. The juice I'm talking about here is NOT your ordinary morning kitchen-made juices made truly by your mbak. This cold-pressed juice contains 5X MORE nutrients (Vitamins, minerals & enzymes), obviously NO preservatives, concentrates, additives and sugar and has smashing taste! How so? Because it uses cold pressed juicer with minimum heat, so the beneficial enzymes remain. Hollywood A-listers like Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba are just few names that swear by this juice cleanse.
Put the science aside, my biggest problem is finding the REAL cold-pressed juices in in my own hometown, Jakarta. Many stores claimed to have one when it's not, duh! Until one day I discovered COLDPRESS INDONESIA. My search officially comes to an end. After consulting with the person, I tried their 3 Days Detox Program consisting of 6 tasty bottles per day. So, let's see how this one works!
My personal pre and during detox tips to maximize the benefits :
STRICTLY NO ALCOHOL, CAFFEINES, NICOTINE, REFINED SUGAR, DAIRY PRODUCTS, PROCESSED FOOD, ETC..
Instead drink more water and substitute morning coffee with herbal teas. And most importantly don't aim for weight loss but to flush out those evil toxins from your body :)
These six tasty and numbered bottles are meant for one day consumption and Cold Press INDONESIA gave the drink schedule as well, no worry! So for my 3 days detox program I was sent in total 18 bottles of these healthy goodness. My personal faves are Green Boost, Refresh and Citrus Burst!
I was all dressed up, it was a busy day from morning meeting to interview at night, not to mention Jakarta's traffic! Not the ideal day to start I thought, but it went well. No side effects like nausea or diarrhea as mentioned. My only regret was to reject the famous Korean spicy chicken. But think of the benefits at the end, it will be worth it ;)
It's a more relaxed day, I went for a quick pilates class before meeting my friend over lunch. And don't be scared of feeling weak for not eating, because you won't. The Nutty Nuts really helped me to feel full and energized. There is no serious side effect apart from light diarrhea. Honestly, my biggest problem is to watch my friends eating while I just talked, stared and drooled! That's why supportive friends are the best :p
DAY 3 and RESULTS
Last day! And the hardest one. I felt like giving up because I didn't have any solid food for days. My craving flied to the roof. That's why I preferred to stay at home to avoid the temptations of sinful desserts. I felt a bit nausea, but it was under controlled. Luckily, the juices taste great.
After the 3 Days Detox Program, surprisingly I felt more energized, physically and mentally. The unhealthy craving is gone, my skin is more glowing, no bloating and I (surprisingly..or not) lost 2 KGs in this process. To keep it this way I start by eating small portions of meal consisting of healthy fruits and veggies. Plus, COLD PRESS INDONESIA has Juice Subscription options that you can try (excluded from detox set). I can't believe healthy can be tasty as well :) Overall, I am very satisfied and impressed with the taste, quality and service. The price may be a bit intimidating for juice cleanse, but trust me it is the best price I've ever seen and plus if you just purchased that cute Chanel purse, why don't invest in something good for your health? I recommend you to give this fun detox a try at least once, so you can see the results yourself or just talk with your friends about it.
