Experiment: 5-day Juice Cleanse with Antidote and Lifestyle Fitness's 5-day Juice Cleanse

Day 0 - Preparing for the cleanse
Just received my first 3 days worth of juices for an Intermediate level 5-day cleanse, accompanied by a Cleanse Guide. Basic instructions: Drink our juices in the order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 every 2-4 hours for the duration of your programme.

It advises to do things like

  • Hydrate with lemon water
  • Sip herbal tea
  • Plenty of rest
  • Brush your skin every morning to help blood circulation, stimulate lymphatic system, and remove dead skin
  • Light exercises
  • Go for a massage

Massage? No problemo.
And to avoid these foods (more of a problem):

  • Gluten
  • Dairy
  • Soft Drinks
  • Alcohol
  • Refined Carbohydrates (white rice, white bread, pastas, etc)
  • Meat
  • Trans and Saturated Fats (fried foods)
If I get HANGRY during the journey, I'm allowed to eat broccoli, cucumber, apple, raw nuts, avocado, strawberries, low sodium vegetable broth, and I can drink black coffee.  Thank goodness for the coffee allowance.

I'll be avoiding high intensity workouts during the week, so I don't faint! Instead, I'll be working on a specialized low intensity program on the Vibrogym at Lifestyle Fitness with Alvin Tan, which has proven to be extremely effective in leaning me out in the past. (read more on that here)
