5 Hard work but does the job!scimmietta | 01/03/2009 | See all scimmietta's reviews (1)Set out on this journey highly sceptical but after a boozy weekend away (during which I consumed enough alcohol to sink a small ship) I decided it had to be good for my body. I didn't find the plan easy to stick to and, despite what the book tells you, I was hungry a bit of the time. I also suffered terrible headaches and could have slept non stop through the first three days - such was the overwhelming tiredness. However (and I can't believe I am actually writing this) I woke on day 5 to feel completely energised. Seriously - I felt like I had so much energy and walked the entire day non stop. Even at 1am I was sat reading as I was still buzzing too much to sleep! The last couple of days were a breeze and, whilst completely happy with the extra energy I was enjoying, I found out I had also lost exactly 7lbs. The whole experience has made me contemplate seriously considering keeping on with the juicing in the long run.The juices are very easy on the palate and I even found that some of my favorites turned out to be the ones which, when I first looked at the ingredients, I thought 'yuk'. This isn't a cheap plan to follow however and I think I spent well over £50 on fruit and veg for the seven days (yup, I didn't think that was possible either). The supplements that are reccommended also don't come cheap (you are advised to order them of the web site) but I found equivalent products at Holland & Barrat for less. I thought it was a lot of mumbo jumbo when I started but am definitely in this for the long run now as the results speak for themselves!I got a couple of his other books too and find his whole writing style informative, motivational and interesting without being in the least patronising.Definitely a 5 star rating.
