1-day Detox: the skinny juicery
Ok, i’ve seen several people do this detox thing in instagram and facebook. So, i obviously got curious. I first tried a bottle from another vendor (detoxifybar) last month. I tried the lemon with cayenne and some other ingredient I forget. It was ok. Like for someone who doesn’t like too much spicy food, I actually thought that lemon drink was ok. I didn’t get to finish the entire bottle, but I almost did. ;)
Anyhow, I thought to myself that I was ready for at least 1-dat juice cleanse or detox. So I emailed The Skinny Juicery. They replied a day after with their menu. I chose the drinks I like and thought I was ready to order; but apparently not. So I got in touch with them again about two weeks after. I got a bit frustrated coz they said order two days in advanced and they weren’t replying. They replied several hours after, and I was sleeping already at that time (6pm—-I work at night you see). They were asking for my order when I texted them that I already emailed it; so when I woke up at 10:30, I had to send everything via text and tell them again that u already emailed it. The next day, I didn’t get any reply from the previous night’s text. So i inquired after lunch. Then they replied again asking once again what my order was. Dammit. I really was frustrated already that I had to keep on resending my order. Obviously, I had no choice but to text once again. Finally, they got my order and said it will be delivered Saturday (I originally wanted it delivered Thursday, but due to the delay in acknowledging the texts and/or email, they said they can’t deliver it anymore on Thursday and said Friday instead, but I told them no one can receive it during the delivery time). They said it’ll be delivered between 2-7pm. Good thing I didn’t leave the house Saturday morning coz it was delivered around 11am. I was a bit irritated that they didn’t follow what they said would be the delivery time —- what if I went somewhere far and no one was home that time coz they said 2-7pm? Anyway, what the heck, right? It was after all already there.
It arrived in a cooler-like lunchbag (the terms escapes my mind now) with ice to keep it cold/fresh. So there were 6 bottles and 2 tea bags. Sunday, I woke up pretty late so instead of having the tea at 6 and following the schedule given, I drank the morning tea at around 9:30am; drank the 1st bottle of greens at around 10:15; felt hungry around 12nn so i drank my hello skinnies queen royalty. The tea tasted and smelled really good considering i am not a tea drinker. The 1st bottle i drank was pretty ok; tasted more like cucumber so i assume that they put more of cucumber. It was composed of spinach, romaine, parsley, ginger, kale, cucumber, celery, lemon, carrot, apple and pineapple. Then the hello skinnies queen royalty queen A (almonds, filtered water, dates, sea salt, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg) was not so good —- it was like milk that lacked the sweetness and vanilla taste. I had to hold my breath each time i took a sip so i won’t taste it —- i was looking for sweetness that’s why i found it challenging to drink. You can taste the cinnamon and nutmeg, but my sweet tooth was really looking for more vanilla taste and sweetness i guess. I don’t know what it was, but I just didn’t really like this particular drink too much. :(
Then i had to leave and go out with family so i brought with me two bottles —- the ones for lunch. So while my kids ate at taco bell, i gulped down my 1st lunch drink which was kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, celery, apple, and lemon. It pretty much tasted like the first green drink i had for the day so i was ok with it and was able to chug it down. Now, i cheated —- see i felt extremely hungry before i drank that green drink for lunch and coz i have GERD, i felt i needed to eat something and just drink that greens with my lunch. I had taco to go with that greens. After that, i felt full so i didn’t get to drink the 2nd one which was the heart beet made of apple, carrot, beets, lemon, ginger, and pineapple. So we strolled in the mall waiting till it’s time for the kids to enter the theatre to watch Frozen for their movie date with my sis. While strolling, I would grab my heart beet bottle and would take a sip often. When the kids were on the theatre already with my sister, my hubby and i went around the mall to shop for christmas gifts, and later on found out that i drank all my heart beet already —- yay!
Then it was time for dinner. We ate at a dimsum place and i had soup. I felt full. So when we got home, i still had two bottles left —- the other queen royalty supposedly for my snack and the palm orange for dinner. So i just drank the bedtime tea, and said i’ll drink the two bottles the next day. ;)
Fast forward to the next day —- ate my breakfast from the fitness gourmet (that’ll be another blog) and drank the pulp orange (apple, lemon, pineapple, and mint). This was soooo good —- tasted like a regular OJ. I wanted more of it after i chugged it all the way.
Couple of hours later, i drank the last bottle —- the queen B: almonds, filtered water, dates, sea salt, cacao, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It tasted gooooood! This satisfies my sweet tooth. It kinda tastes like your regular chocolate drink only better coz of the cinnamon and nutmeg.
During the day, i would frequent the toilet to pee. I remember after the morning snack (queen A), i had to go pee several times like five times i think every 5-7 minutes and each time I did, i peed a lot. I didn’t feel lightheaded or anything. I also had a good night’s sleep thanks to the bedtime tea. The following day, i actually felt lighter.
Overall, i would do this again, but choose another flavor instead of queen A. I don’t think i can do 2 or 3 day cleanse though.
If you think you can do this, i suggest research first and follow them on intagram (theskinnyjuiceryph) to see the testimonials (pictures/ screen captures of texts/emails). If you have more questions or you’re ready to order, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
