HOW MUCH WEIGHT DID YOU LOSE DURING THE 12 DAYS?
13 pounds (5.9 kg)
DID YOU DO THE FULL OR MODIFIED* VERSION OF THE DETOX?
I alternated between the full and modified version. One day just the smoothies and snacks and the next day the smoothies, snacks and the healthy meal. This was a good way to keep me motivated actually while still getting good results. I really looked forward to the days with the meals haha.
*Modified version is including the optional meal
HOW DID YOUR 12 DAY EXPERIENCE GO?
Before I began the detox I had already accepted I would give up by about the 2nd day as my willpower is usually pretty low when it comes to food lol.
The first day was very difficult for me because I was craving "real" food so bad. I almost gave up there and then, but I had a browse through the smoothie detox instagram page and seeing the results of other people who had completed the detox kept me motivated.
The next day I decided I would add in the optional meal as I was still missing food. That done just the trick and actually made a lot of difference.
By the third and fourth day I was really getting into the swing of things and my cravings for fast food were greatly reduced.
In comparison to the first day of the detox, days 5-12 were an absolute breeze! I was seeing results each day and the number dropping on the scale kept me SO motivated. I know it's not all about the weight loss, but this was a huge motivating factor for me.
After the detox I followed the advice on how to return to healthy food and I haven't put on a single pound since (it's been two weeks so far).
I am so proud of myself! Besides the weight loss, the BEST feeling is knowing that I kicked this detoxes butt. Definitely feeling accomplished and ready to take on my next challenge.
DID YOU NOTICE ANY IMPROVEMENTS TO YOUR HEALTH?
I just felt healthier and lighter overall. Usually I would feel sluggish and weighed down by the junk food. I just felt GOOD, like I had had a good spring clean inside, haha!
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THE 12 DAY SMOOTHIE SLIM DETOX TO OTHERS?
Absolutely yes! Best $8 I have spent. Just wish someone had told me about it sooner!
