JUICE CLEANSE

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Love Your Body -

Another way to detox is through a juice cleanse, and online store Hic’ Juice makes it con­ve­nient by de­liv­er­ing the fresh prod­ucts straight to your doorstep.

Beauty ed­i­tor Si­mone Wu tried the Re­boot 3-day Cleanse for be­gin­ners. It in­cludes 18 bot­tles of or­ganic cold­pressed juice (500ml each).

DAY 1 “Af­ter tak­ing a glass of warm le­mon wa­ter at 7.30am, I had my first juice at 9am. The Pop­eye Smoothie, a blend of red dragon fruit, pineap­ples, bananas, spinach and ionised wa­ter, was so de­li­cious! Aside from the juices, I had to drink at least 2 litres of ionised or pu­ri­fied wa­ter ev­ery day of the cleanse.

The juices filled me up nicely though my stom­ach started growl­ing about 10 min­utes be­fore meals. I had healthy (and com­fort­able) bowel move­ments dur­ing the day, and felt ready for bed by 11pm (early for me).

DAY 2 I lost 1.2kg af­ter my first day. Yippee! Some­one who didn’t know I was do­ing a juice cleanse com­mented that my com­plex­ion looked clearer. I wasn’t so keen to drink some of the veg­etable blends but kept re­mind­ing my­self of other yummy juices like the Nut Milk, a dessert con­coc­tion of non-dairy milk, raw cashews and al­monds, vanilla, med­jool dates, Hi­malayan salt, cin­na­mon and ionised wa­ter.

DAY 3 When I woke up, I felt so well­rested that I didn’t hit the snooze but­ton. There was also a big smile on my face as I stepped on the weigh­ing scale – I’d lost another 0.8kg! Later in the day, though, I got cranky with my fre­quent trips to the toi­let, and started to crave solid food.

RE­SULTS I woke up on day four feel­ing as en­er­getic as the day be­fore, and dis­cov­ered I had lost another 0.5kg – a to­tal of 2.5kg over three days! My bowel move­ments im­proved and I be­came more con­scious of the food I ate.”

COST The Re­boot 3-day Cleanse costs $329.56 while de­liv­ery costs $26.75 (in­clud­ing GST). Hic’ Juice rec­om­mends that be­gin­ners fol­low up with a cleanse once ev­ery quar­ter or ev­ery other month.

The com­pany of­fers other cleanse pro­grammes for in­ter­me­di­ate and ad­vanced users. For more in­for­ma­tion, go to www.hicjuice.com.sg.
