‘Juice Diary’ – Day 0


‘Each day, we choose to be a better version of ourselves.’

What is Healthy Living?

To be honest I would like to think my eating habits are healthy, my life choices are positive, but how can I be sure?

Our entire life we aim towards being healthier, make better choices, surround ourselves with love and happy people and always have positive thoughts.

But when it comes down to our eating habits, do we really know what are those healthy choices?

Growing up we are told to eat our vegetables, drink the milk and and go to bed early.

As adolescents we hoop on the speedy train called life and become best friends with everything that begins with ‘Fast’…

…and then one day we wake up and we realise we have to slow down because we are not so fast anymore…we stop eating after 6pm and become charmed at the sound of ‘healthy’.

We start reading only magazines that pretend to sell the secret to eternal youth…begin diets we know we never going to finish…and at the end we realise we are still so far behind of being who we want to be.

For those who know me, I am all in when it comes to eating healthy, taking care of your body and making sure that when I stand in front of a mirror I love the person who is looking back at me:)

…but I’ve always had one question I didn’t find the answer to yet: “How do you know what is healthy?”

With so many so called ‘healthy diets’ out there, millions of recipes that assure you that your life will change once you try them, programmes and people who promise you the Wonderland of Youth and Health if you follow their advice…I am still not convinced by anyone or anything!

The healthy ways of life are almost like the trends in fashion…they are renewed each season, there is always a new collection out to tempt you and inevitably a new designer/nutritionist who thinks they’ve found the secret to your fashion/eating habits.

So in anticipation of finding the best version of Me, I’ve decided to do a little experiment and follow the season of what’s new in the Healthy Living department.

With some light reading, because to be honest, there is no shortage of diet plans, if you’re looking to eat healthy, loose weight and get with the programme; I’ve discovered the new trend this season: Juice Diet.

I thought to myself “that was easy”, well…easier that trying to find the best pair of shoes that will work with a new dress I bought and didn’t need 🙂

I was very wrong…

If you look a bit closer, read a bit more, you realise there are hundreds of so called juice diets that promise to deliver a ‘New You’, a ‘Better You’, a ‘Skinnier You’…a ‘Happier You’.

I’ve hit the proverbial ‘Juice Blocker’…which one is the right choice? How will I decide which ‘collection’ to follow…

This was no trip to the latest fashion week…where I could return with a clear idea how my  wardrobe will look like in the upcoming season…without a doubt, I needed help!

Did you know that people in general share a positive experience with less people than a complete negative one? How is that even possible?

Well…even with those statistics I’ve found something that caught my attention!

One of my colleague from work just finished a juice diet…lucky me:)…so I’ve decided to have a chat with him about it.

He looked happy and healthy…very proud of his achievement and ready to share it with the world!

After a short conversation I was amazed of his choice to follow this diet, the challenges he faced but even more, of the results.

But I still wasn’t convinced…I needed to do more research; so I’ve started reading about this Super Juice Diet, made a list of pro and cons in my mind, of course:) and finally decided to be my own guinea pig and see if this Juice Trend fits me or not!

A bit more info for you: Jason Vale’s 28 days Super Juice Me Plan – 28 days of just 4 juices per day, all recipes provided; even possibility of creating the shopping list for ingredients for days ahead via the ‘there is an app for that’, a promise from its creator that at the end of it you will be a much healthier version of yourself and that it might be a very sure path towards loosing weight but at the same time it’s a perfect way to cleanse your body of toxins and boost your metabolism.

Excited and somehow worried if I can make it 28 days just living of juice…well, join me in my not so little experiment and we’ll see where we’ll end up:)

So here it goes…28 days Super Juice Me Plan!

I’ve always loved a challenge:)

 

Your Juice Girl,

Julia

  1. OMG! 🙂 Are you actually living on juices only for a whole month???? Can you do that? I won’t miss a post. Are you sure, darling, it’s ok?
    I too went shopping yesterday for fruits and seeds. I got plenty ofy super foods from Whole Foods UK (goji berries, chia and a bunch of food I had never heard before). I invested in a blender to make smoothies and I’m soon getting a infused water bottle too. I intend to add smoothies to my daily menu because I feel I’m not eating enough fruits and veggies. I can’t imagine a whole month without carbs (well, I’m half Italian How could I survive without pasta????)
    Be brave, dear!

    1. I am doing a bit of experiment, as there are so many juice diets out there, I really want to see what is behind it all…so yes I am attempting to do this as the plan says, for 28 days! Will I survive it? Not sure…but I think it will be fun:)
      Don’t even mention pasta…that is one of my eternal loves:)
      Due come back and see how I am doing, I really hope you will enjoy my posts!
      Thank you for the lovely message:)

  2. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot more about healthy choices. I used to consider my eating habits quite healthy but I decided too to go deeper on the issue. I’m doing a to of research on infused water, super foods and smoothies, not as a diet per se but just a way to drink more water and increase the amount of veggies and fruits. Looking forward to learn more from you and share my own experiences.

    1. That sounds great…
      I think we live in a world where we all try to go back to what once was so easy to do…be healthy:)
      Looking forward to read more about your experience and maybe learn from one another as we experiment different ways in trying to find out the secret behind our eating habits!
