We spoke to Gill Rock who told us that she has so much more energy since she started juicing…
What got you in to Juicing?
Juicing has changed my life. I have had a rather rubbish year. I experienced a molar pregnancy in July and having eaten carb after carb while pregnant, and being on various steroids, I had put on a stone and felt dreadful and lethargic.
What juice programme did you follow?
I started juicing – albeit reluctantly – in August after recommendation from a friend. I began with the ‘7lbs in 7 Days’ plan. I found it difficult to start with, but by day 3 I felt great. By the end of the week I couldn’t believe the results! I lost a brilliant, well needed, 9lb.
Would you recommend juicing?
Absolutely. I have since become a juicing addict and I have gone on to do the 5lbs in 5 days plan and juicing is a part of my life. I juice daily and have a main meal. The benefits for me are great physically! The weight has stayed off and the energy it gives me means I can train 3-4 times week. My biggest love is how I feel mentally. After a very challenging time my mind feels clear and very positive. I can not imagine life without juicing.
If I won the lottery the first thing I would do would be to book on a juice retreat!!
What’s your favourite juice?
My fav is Juice Master’s Super Juice.
The Super Juice
- ½ lime – peeled
- 2 Golden Delicious or Royal Gala apples
- ¼ pineapple
- ¼ medium cucumber
- ¼ ripe avocado
- 10oz of fresh wheatgrass
- 1 level teaspoon of spirulina
- 1 capsule of Juice Master’s Friendly Bacteria (60 caps)
- Ice cubes
Juice the apples, pineapple, cucumber and lime. Put the avocado flesh into a blender along with the ice, wheatgrass, spirulina, and the friendly bacteria powder. Blend everything until smooth, pour and enjoy.
