We spoke to Raj Mistry who has lost an incredible 74lbs since he started juicing in August last year…

What got you in to juicing?

I live in Kettering, UK.  I started the 7lbs in 7 days programme in August 2013, and have followed it every month (except December, where I indulged for the holidays).  From August till up until last week I’ve lost 74lbs.

I was also suffer from asthma, urticaria (aka skin writing),  lower back disc prolapse, a sleeping disorder and I was very over weight.

I was on constant medication (mainly pain killers) and feeling very tired all the time.

What were your results?

Now everything has changed.  I’m on less medication  (no pain killers since I started in August), my asthma is under total control (which is unheard of this time of this time of year. I’m usually on at least 4 or 5 puffs of vented in per day!), even my Urticaria is no longer a problem at all. Plus I have loads more energy and I feel great!

Would you recommend juicing to anyone?

Since I started juicing I have “Juiced it Forward” (what I like to call it) to a further 6 people –  who have felt the difference too.  My wife has a juice every morning which has helped her skin and energy level, and both my sons (5yrs and 3yrs) love the juices.

Their favourite is the Turbo with a Kick, or as they call it the “Green Juice”. This week (while I took part in the World’s Biggest Juice Detox) they have tried a few of the juices and loved them.  They even like the ginger shot (less ginger, more apple).

I have always been a huge fan of fruit and juices, but never had juices this fresh. Since August I haven’t had any caffeine and I have not had any shop bought juices, and what’s better is I haven’t even missed any of them!

I’ve been out for meals with work and family, and usually I would have a cola drink.  Not anymore, just sparkling mineral water with a slice of lemon for me, and I prefer it!

This week on the 5lbs in 5 days (World’s Biggest Juice Detox) I have lost 6.6kg (13.7lbs) and feel great (so total weight loss since August is 33.6kg, which is 74lbs).

I’ll be doing the 5-2-5.

Thanks you for the juicing revolution. It has changed my life and the lives of my family. We will be juicing for life.  Just can’t thank you enough.
