Just Juices 3 Day Detox

Over Christmas all I did was eat and drink and ended up putting on a bit of weight so when January came around I decided I had to get back to my healthy eating. I'd seen a lot of bloggers tweet about juice detoxes and after doing some research decided they would be a good way to kick start my healthy eating. I looked at a few different companies and settled on Just Juices as I liked the sound of theirs the best. I followed them on twitter and they sent me an email giving me all the details of their 3 and 5 day detoxes and I decided on 3 days as I don't think I could have lasted for 5. They then sent my juices out for then next Tuesday ready for me to start my detox on the Wednesday.

Just Juices sends you 12 juices (4 for each day), a morning shot, a lemon and herbal tea bags as part of your detox. Every morning you start off with a shot of the wake up juice and a hot lemon water to kick start your metabolism and help your body burn fat, then throughout the day you have 4 of the juices that tell you when to drink them on the label. You can also drink as much lemon water and herbal tea throughout the day as you like.

'Boost It' 10am

Boost It is a super green juice that removes the toxins from your body and boosts your energy levels. It's made up of Apples, Pineapples, Spinach, Cucumber, Courgette, Fennel, Sugar Snap Peas and Lime. I think this was my least favourite out of all the 4 juices but it was definitely still drinkable.

'Beet It' 1pm

Beet It cleanses your liver, boosts your immune system and reduces high blood pressure containing Beetroot, Carrots, Ginger, Basil and Blackberries. I didn't think I would like this one but it was actually really nice and the beetroot wasn't too over powering.

'Feel It' 4pm

Feel It is full of vitamins and minerals and is a natural antihistamine and decongestant. Its made of Oranges, Carrots, Ginger, Grapefruit and Mint and was my favourite out of all of the juices.

'Love It' 7pm

Love It is the only all fruit drink and gives you the good fats that you need. It has Banana, Apples, Raspberries, Blackberries, Natural Yoghurt and Mixed Seeds in it and was also one of my favourites and really easy to drinks.

On the first day I thought I was going to struggle and feel hungry but the juices kept me full and by the end of day one I already felt much healthier. When I woke up in the morning my stomach was really flat and I still wasn't feeling too hungry but by the end of the day I felt like I needed something to chew on and snacked on some homemade kale chips which are healthy anyway. On the final day I was used to just having my four juices to drink that I was even getting quite full after them and waited longer in between juices.

At the end of the detox I felt amazing and so much healthier, I also lost a total of 6lb over the 3 days which is a great kick start to my healthy eating. Now I'm back to eating healthy and my typical days diet is porridge, soup or a salad and salmon or chicken with vegetables. I've got 6 months before I get into my bikini in Marbella and having a holiday booked is motivating me to keep exercising and eating healthy.

Overall it was quite difficult but if you have the motivation to stick to it it's worth it. I'd definitely do a Just Juices detox again. It costs £69 for the 3 day course and you can follow Just Juices on twitter for more information - @JustJuicesUK. Have you ever done a juice detox or are thinking about doing one?

P.S Sorry about the photos, I forgot to take some with my camera and these are from Instagram.


  1. This looks good! I did a 5 day detox but it was just a litre of diluted stuff to drink and only eating fruit and veg basically, I kinda cheated a few times though so not sure how well it worked... I'm not sure how I feel about the juice ones! It would be interesting to try, don't think I could cope with the 5 day one either! xx

  2. I was thinking of trying a juice detox so think I might have to give it a try, the juices sound very yummy.
    Thanks for sharing :)

  3. The juices sound yummy! wish I had a juicer! :P
    Elephant stories and more

  4. I really want to try this but don't think I could justify £69 for juice!

  5. You can make these juices yourself at barely any cost.. just buy all the ingredients and you can buy juicers for as little as £30 in argos xxx

    1. I know I have a juicer and I've made my own juices before. Not that much cheaper once you buy all the ingredients.

  6. Wow that's incredible loosing 6 lbs in 3 days! Might have to give this a go !

  7. Juice fasting is a great way to detoxify. Detox cleanses the body from toxins & replenishes it with nutrients. Read also:
