From there I slowly reintroduced proteins and carbs into my diet over the weekend and still felt great heading into work the following Monday.
I drank three juices and plenty of water throughout the day but arrived home from work feeling cold and hungry.
At times I struggled to concentrate in work, but drinking the right juices at the right times delivered a sweet boost just when I was flagging the most.
Thinking of doing a weight busting juice cleanse? We tried it out!
Eventually, I relented and heated up a bowl of vegetable soup before filling up my hot water bottle and hitting the sack early.
In the quest for a new year, new me, so far this month I have started swimming in the Irish Sea (well I have been once to be precise), going for hikes up the Dublin mountains AND I decided to try out a juice cleanse in a bid to really make my body a temple.
I felt great heading into work and throughout the morning after snacking on a concoction of red pepper, beetroot, carrot, cucumber and lime juice.
Would I do it again? Absolutely - I'm already planning my next cleanse before heading off on holidays in May.
