THE VER­DICT

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

Cleanses can be anti so­cial, so stick to eater­ies that serve juices and herbal teas so your willpower isn’t con­tin­u­ally tested. I was par­tic­u­larly im­pressed by the acne-clear­ing ef­fect the juices had on my skin. Fiona’s daily e-mails and tips are in­for­ma­tive and en­cour­ag­ing and I found the pro­gramme won­der­fully con­ve­nient; sim­ply de­frost the juices overnight and drink them on time. This frees up hours to do ac­tiv­i­ties you may not al­ways have time for. While I didn’t ex­er­cise ev­ery day, I did man­age four runs dur­ing the week with suf­fi­cient en­ergy.For those look­ing to lose weight, this is a great way to slim down all over, es­pe­cially round the stomach and thighs – wave good­bye to your muf­fin top! In ad­di­tion to re­vived skin, I fin­ished the cleanse feel­ing more toned and lighter, both phys­i­cally and men­tally – it is a fan­tas­tic feel­ing know­ing you have purged your or­gans of tox­ins and re­plen­ished them with nu­tri­ents. Fast-for­ward a few weeks and I’m much more aware of what I’m putting in my body and how it makes me feel. Juice Revo­lu­tion has re-ed­u­cated me to feed my skin with plant-based nu­tri­ents, which I con­tinue to do as much as pos­si­ble, but I still be­lieve in en­joy­ing ev­ery­thing in mod­er­a­tion. If I want that glass of wine or slice of pizza, I’m go­ing to have it,but I’m more pro­tec­tive of my skin and con­scious of my choices. Since this is my body, I fig­ure it’s worth in­vest­ing in.
