Last month I contacted the amazing Laura at The Juice Works. I told her about how I was feeling sluggish etc with just having a baby and asked about doing another cleanse. I generally do these kind of cleanse’s twice a year. I had tried The Juice Works before and loved it. I don’t do these to loose weight at all, it’s more about feeling better in myself than anything. I know juicing helps your body so much and I always feel really good after it, you also sleep really good during it also. I kept a short diary of each day during my cleanse just to pop in the post and let you all see how I was getting on.
I did make home made vegetable soup on Day 3 to help me along Day 3, 4 & 5 and it most definitely worked.
So here’s my juice diary….
I knew I was starting my cleanse today so I had my last coffee yesterday. I love my coffee so I knew I would find this hard. First up is the Ginger Shot & Green Machine which is actually my favourite of the four. It’s really filling and I loved it. Then I had my Clean and Green at lunch followed by my Beet It and lastly my Cacao Mylk before bed. I actually found today fine because I was so busy I wasn’t thinking of food anyway which was good. I drank a LOT of water today too. I was getting in a minimum of 2.5 litres per day. I adore all the juices but I wasn’t a massive fan of the Cacao Mylk now.
I woke up this morning a little bit hungry but drank my Green Machine straight away along with my Ginger Shot and I was absolutely grand. The ginger shot is actually delicious, very sour but good. Today was ok but because I was at home and near food I was thinking about it loads. I was dying for a bit of dinner Sean made but I resisted. He made me Vegetable soup instead for tomorrow incase I woke up hungry again. I had a headache tonight but this is to be expected and normally happens on day two for me.
I slept like a baby last night and Sean done the night feeds. I didn’t wake up as hungry today but I actually had my shot & juice then a bowl of soup as I woke up late nearly 11am. The soup most definitely filled me and I was fine all day long today. My headaches had gone but I was drinking even more water now to try make sure it didn’t come back. My second favourite now is the Beet It and it’s so funny because on my last cleanse it was my least favourite but I LOVE it so much now.
I struggled today I won’t lie. I was dying for food. My friend asked me to go for lunch and I had to say no because I know I would have eaten something. I didn’t go in the end however I did have more soup and an Americano. I couldn’t do it, I needed a coffee. I’m terrible I know but I just couldn’t do it. I’m the worst person when it comes to coffee and being awake so much with Lily I needed it so bad.
I slept really well last night again. That’s one HUGE benefit to the cleanse is sleeping. This wasn’t about the weightless at all and never is. I do this as it makes me feel so good and really clean if that makes sense. I did weighted myself this afternoon and I lost 5.5 pounds in total. I’m sure if I didn’t have the soup I may have lost more but it was more about feeling better in myself and having more energy which I did.
The cleanse most definitely made me feel SO GOOD. I felt so clean inside and drinking so much water was a dream. I felt it go through my entire body. Juicing is so good for you and it definitely kick starts you into eating healthier and making better food choices.

Two years ago Laura’s mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. My mum’s tumor was successfully removed 3 years ago, however the treatmeant was so intense that at one stage Laura thought she might not make it. Her mum’s weight plummeted and depression hit her. At this point Laura made the decision to step in and bought her a good masticating juicer. Laura made her vegetable juices (as she’s type 1 diabetic, therefore fruit is out) twice every day. Six months down the line and she was a different person! Laura doesn’t ever claim that juicing cured her, however by giving her body that high concentration of unprocessed minerals, vitamins and enzymes without any doubt in my mind it helped her speed the recovery. After many months of late nights studying biology, anatomy and physiology, nutrition and juicing Laura is now one of only QUALIFIED INDEPENDENT JUICING THERAPISTS in Ireland.
So there you have it guys 🙂 That’s my honest review of the juice cleanse. Would I do it again? IN A HEARTBEAT! It’s an amazing thing to do for the body.
