5lbs in 5days Review and Berry Crunch Smoothie Recipe

As promised here is an update on how I got on with the 5lbs in 5 days detox by Jason Vale and my Philips Viva Juicer*.

I am a serious foodie -the type who thinks about dinner at breakfast and breakfast at dinner. I remember most things by restaurants or what I was eating(– happy memories, breakups, makeups etc) like to think of it as a gift. It’s not that I even eat alot I tend to struggle to finish whats on my plate it’s that I just love food… alot. 5lbs in 5days Review and Berry Crunch Smoothie Recipe

I was scared about how the Detox was going to go, the Day before I though I may be writing to you guys telling you I craved when offered something truly delectable but I did it.

My name is Ngoni and I did the 5lbs n 5 days detox and lost 5lbs! It wasn’t easy but at after my second day epiphany it was. Once I told myself that it is only for 5 days and wasn’t going to kill me I was able to go on. When I say it wasn’t easy I mean that I missed chewing, and for the first two days it really didn’t help seeing everyone else eat but once I had stern words with myself I could do it. It was pretty cool realising that I actually do have willpower! The juice were tasty not tasty like a calorie laden slutty brown but tasty like a healthy good for you juice or one of my vegan banana muffins.

You start the day with a ginger and apple shot – I felt a cold coming on Sunday evening but having this daily definitely kept that bad boy away also I have year round ‘hayfever’ I take an antihistamine daily and I didn’t do it this week the only thing I took was my iron tablet which I also do daily. My allergies didn’t flare up so I’m going to continue doing this in the mornings. I may pick up some nasal sprays too so that I’m keeping them free from all the pollen, I’ll have to check out some links online like https://serp.co/best/nasal-moisturizers/ or go into my local pharmacy to see what’s available.

I usually have a green smoothie for breakfast anyway or porridge but after doing the detox I definitely plan on doing it for atleast one day a week or two days a week. A version of the 5:2 Vale recommends.

I feel and felt great and clean. I had energy- I really thought I would be all kinds of lethargic but I was fine, great even.

The Viva Juicer is very easy to use and clean.

My favourite juice was the Berry Crunch I snapped away while making this so you can see how I used the machine and also how to make your own Berry Crunch Smoothie from Jason Vale Recipe.

So thats it my little review. I can’t express to you just how good this detox was for me.

Most importantly I learnt alot about false hungers and when I really need to eat.

I was provided with the 5lbs in 5days book, fruit and Philips Viva Juicer by Philips. However as always my write up is an honest one.
