Lomax 3-Day Juice Cleanse

I’ve never been one to shy away from extremes. So after my hen weekend, it seemed only fitting to embark on a detoxifying 3-day juice cleanse.

How it works: For three days, I replace all meals with cold-pressed organic juices.

The idea is to give my digestive system a rest, allow my liver to repair itself and my body to shed toxins.

The days before I started the cleanse, I ate super-healthy meals. My last meal was a from a newly launched nutritional brand called Vereo. They promote a concept of wellbeing by offering healthy balanced dishes designed by their Michelin trained development chef, for busy people on the go.

The last food to pass my lips was fresh, healthy and delicious, and prepared me to start my cleanse the next day.

Okay, bring on the juices!

I chose the Lomax Cleanse. The juices must be picked up each day from their cafe on Fulham Road in Chelsea. Each day I had five juices – three main ones, with two in between to keep me going.

During the cleanse, I was instructed to drink lots and lots of water. Coffee and alcohol are prohibited, but green and herbal teas are allowed. I drank many, many cups of Pukka’s Detox blend.

Three days went by so much faster than I expected. The only side effects I can report were feeling a little weak at times, and unusually cold a lot of the time!

The benefits were increased alertness, feeling light and healthy – and by the end – a way flatter tummy!

I even felt I could go longer than three days. But it was nice to get back to real food, which I eased back into with a few days of raw veg – like this salad with miso dressing from Le Pain Quotidien.

I will definitely be doing this cleanse again before the wedding to get me in healthy and balanced bridal form!

But I think I’ll save it for another rainy day down the road…
