Juice, Juice and Weight loss!

I officially started yesterday. My friend gave me my training program on Thursday for the Brooklyn Half and I decided on Friday night that I need to make sure my body was in top condition to start this program.
So I decided to do a juicing detox/cleanse just to start fresh and monitor the food from this point on what goes into by body as well as my body able to function effectively. I did feel heavy before I started and now I can say I do feel lighter and just ready to conquer this. 

Here’s what I used to do this detox 

Listen, while I could have used real fruits lets me explain. I actually LOVE eating my fruits and I felt as if they were being “wasted” if I just juiced them and drank them (which I know is not true,) but I love to taste my fruits, I truly do love to eat them, so I know juicing them wasn’t an option, I just went with these. 

Not only did I drink these juices, I also drank water as well. I figured drinking water would also aid me in keeping fuller longer. WRONG! Water actually did the opposite. When I started I started drinking water on Saturday, I didn’t even have the juice yet, but I knew I was going grocery shopping and the juice was going to be purchased so I didn’t worry myself about it, but walking around throughout the store felt horrible, I had to bring my water bottle because I was just empty inside. 

I stopped and purchased a small juice to hold me while I grocery shopped and until I got home as well. It didn’t really work, but it was better than nothing. So I got home and drank the Naked Berry Blast juice first and finished that bottle by the end of the night. I couldn’t bear to stay up at my usual hours so I went to sleep at 9:00PM. 

That Sunday morning I was up by 5:30AM, I was forcing myself to go back to sleep. I mean who wants to be up at 5AM right? But that didn’t work at all, twisting and turning in by bed trying not to head into the kitchen because I didn’t want to start drinking so early, but by 6AM I had to give in and settle my stomach. 

At this point I started on my second bottle, the Naked Mango Madness. As I drank out of my cup, which equals two cups of juice, I drank water right after and after that I always used the bathroom. In never ending cycles, drink juice, drink water use the bathroom. I just couldn’t wait to wake up Monday morning and eat breakfast. 

Is this something I would have done longer? No, I absolutely love food too much to have done this for maybe five days long or even two weeks. But I understand why people do it, the weight loss was amazing.(Yes, a lot of people juice in aiding them in weight loss.)
 Listen after I hit 175lbs, I went back up to 178lbs and it was very shortly after that, then after Sunday morning I was back down to 175lbs, Monday morning before I ate anything and drank anything, I was 174lbs.

Four pounds in two days? That’s amazing. But again, I didn’t do this for the weight loss at all, because I have gone back to 175lbs since Monday morning and I’m ok with that. I only did this to clean out my body and be in the best shape possible to take on this training for the Brooklyn Half Marathon.

So tell me, would do ever do a detox? And if you would what kind? Have you done a detox? And if so which program did you follow? I would love to know.
