Are there any MNers that have done this recently? The threads I've found seem to be a couple of years old.

I started it today and am enjoying the juices but have a bit of a headache going on. I am trying to lose a stone and detox after the excesses of Xmas, a difficult January that I survived with chocolate, biscuits and wine and a very boozy skiing holiday. Enough is enough - I need to get back into god habits.

So, does anyone here do this diet or have they done it recently?

I've just ( mon-fri) done the 5lbs in 5 days detox

Last half of day 1, day 2 and half of day 3 had headaches
Also bad back pain day 2 and 3 and most of 4
Weeing constantly all the way through too

Googled and found it to be normal

I did 5lbs in 5 days quite a few times through 2013 and I love it. Lost weight each time and felt brilliant. If I could afford the fruit and veg I would do it all the time! The headaches will pass.

Ooh, I need to lose weight quickly. What lond of juicing are you doing? Is there a book or website?

Joules68 Sun 23-Feb-14 17:13:01

There's an app and book

It's jason vale.

I'm doing Jason Vale. Well done Joules - sounds about how I'm going to feel.

Did you stick to juices? I'm wondering if having a vegetable salad of an evening will derail it.

What's the app called please?

Pennies Sun 23-Feb-14 17:32:01

7lbs in 7 days. It has a logo of a glass of what looks like orange juice which is splashing over the top of the glass. I can't remember what is cost though.

Thanks pennies smile
Think I might give this a go, feeling bit run down and could really do with losing a bit of weight.

There was a choice of SOS. A banana or an avocado. No other food

I did the exercise and stuck to it. Wasn't really hungry to be honest

RufusTheReindeer Sun 23-Feb-14 19:09:03

Lost 9lbs

Didn't get any side effects but had to change around the drinks as I didn't like a lot of them

Found not chewing really hard!

cuggles Sun 23-Feb-14 19:16:59

I found it ok actually, agree that not chewing something is hard and I too had to change round the juices..wasnt hungry though, will do it again in the late spring I should think...bit of a faff buying and juicing all that fruit and veg though and quite expensive. I carried on juicing 1/2 meals a day and lost a bit more!

Just lost 11lbs on the 14 day turbo charge. Finished Sunday just gone, but am keeping to the twice-daily exercise, juicing and "clean food".
Both myself and DH feeling fantastic!

Joules68 Wed 26-Feb-14 18:52:08

Well done!

What happens in the week or two after? Do you put it all back on?
I am losing weight but have stayed the same for 2 or 3 weeks so wondered if doing a 5 day or 7 day juicing diet would help for a boost and then I would go back to eating as I have been on the diet.

RufusTheReindeer Fri 28-Feb-14 17:06:47

magen when I did it I didn't regain the weight for ages I used it as a kick start and lost a further stone and 4lbs. That was about 3 years ago.

Since the beginning of 2013 I gradually put a stone and 6 lbs back on, but have taken myself back in hand and have lost 1stone this year

Going to stop titting around and stay with my new way of eating (calorie counting/5:2)
