Jason Vale – Juicemaster – 3 day cleanse

As I said in a previous post Fran and I watched Hungry for Change a few weeks ago and were really impressed. However since then, despite talking about making a change with our diets – less sugar etc – we have done the opposite! Since the marathon I have been taking a break from running and combined with a bad diet I feel like I could do with a super dose of goodness! So we have decided to do a 3 day juice cleanse. Not to lose weight, but more like a kick in the backside! We have a juicer and use it sporadically but not as often as I like and I still don’t juice enough vegetables. So I also really wanted to get some ideas on how to make nice vegetable based juices.

I decided on Jason Vales plan for 2 reasons. One it has an awesome app and thus makes it super easy and doable. I’m a sucker for a good app. Secondly, I read his book about giving up drink back in January and it was magic. I haven’t had a drop since. He was also featured in the movie so Franman ‘trusts’ him.

I downloaded the app a few days ago and it’s really easy to use. There is a lot of info to get you ready, advice on juicers etc so you feel prepared going into it. Each day is laid out with recipes and you can download a shopping list which makes it very useful. He also includes some videos – man, this guy LOVES juicing!

 


 

We bought all the supplies today; I will be eating 50% of the produce below over the next few days. God love my stomach. There are 40 apples alone! However besides those and some pineapple and blueberries it’s mainly vegetables.

 


 

Jason reckons that in three days, I’ll have a flatter stomach, a better mental state and I won’t want to eat so much junk food. We’ll see. He also says to not watch any TV for three days as it’s a “mind polluter” but that’s just bollocks so I’m going to ignore that bit.

Each day starts with a cup of hot water with a slice of lemon. And then you have 4 juices over the course of the day. Fingers crossed I won’t be starving going to bed! For the next few days I will report back on how each day went, whether I liked the juices – already I am dreading the amount of celery I had to buy – and what the pros and cons of the program are. I won’t track my weight as I don’t really weight myself and this isn’t about weight. However if Franman notices anything I will let you know! Here’s hoping I achieve that mental clarity Jason thinks is coming my way.

  1. I’m so intrigued to learn how this goes! And bravo. You’re a stronger woman than I am. I don’t think I could face the days here with only a cup of hot water and a lemon in it. Maybe if it was Summer, but right now I’m all about the caffeine.

    Good luck!

    • I haven’t done it yet!!! There is a proper juice after the hot water….and you mix it with avocado to make sure you are full. Hopefully works!

  2. Wow I’m intrigued to see how you go! guess I’m not going to be seeing you at intervals this week…surely four juices wouldn’t be enough to run on (or maybe it would aid things…haha). Does he recommend light exercise?

  3. You are far tougher than I am. The beautiful array of fruit and veg looks delicious but three hours in I would be ripping a piece of toast out of someone’s hands. I am really interested to see how you get on; I hope it goes well!

  4. A practical question. Are you going to make the juices in the morning and bring them into work or can you juice in the office? I am REALLY intrigued by this and despite my previous reply slightly tempted.

    • Hey Michelle! Thanks for your msg. We bought all the produce last night and I organised each juice’s ingredients into a bowl for today. This morning I made our breakfast juice, lunch juice and mid-afternoon juice and bottled up the 2 additional ones to bring to work. We can look forward to a nice dinner juice when we get home. 😉 So far so good, I am a little hungry but think that is more as I think I should be than actually starving! It’s only a few days so should be fine and the breakfast juice tomorrow is more of a smoothie….something to look forward to! :)
