words ANY­ONE who knows me knows I like to con­sume a cer­tain caf­feinated car­bon­ated bev­er­age.

But I also like to go cold turkey by do­ing a cold-press juice cleanse with an in­ter­state com­pany which de­liv­ers.

So when I heard a com­peti­tor, Pressed Juices, had set up shop in Run­dle St, I was buy­ing.

I de­cided to do a one-day cleanse which in-house nutri­tion­ist Eva said would give me a taste of the re­sults you get with three or five days. Af­ter Eva helped me choose eight juices in­clud­ing a green, lemon with cayenne pep­per and a “choco­late” smoothie with hazel­nuts and raw ca­cao, I prepped by lay­ing off the caf­feine.

Next day I sipped my juices – one ev­ery two hours – mak­ing sure I also drank lots of wa­ter as in­structed.

While I never felt hun­gry (and they were yum­mier than my usual brand), I did feel slightly lethar­gic.

The cleanse also moved me – phys­i­cally (too much in­for­ma­tion, I know) and “spir­i­tu­ally” – I felt like I had done a good thing for my body. I found my­self crav­ing cleaner foods and haven’t touched a diet cola since.

While weight loss didn’t hap­pen overnight it did hap­pen. When I weighed my­self about four days later I had lost a kilo. And a friend told me my skin was ra­di­ant, so I’m beam­ing.
