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.
