Detox: The Skinny Juicery

last week, me and Han tried to detox our body with this juices for 2 days...each day, we consumed 6 bottles of different flavors...

what is detox?
Detox, short for detoxification, is the body's natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins are anything that can potentially harm body tissue, including waste products that result from normal cell activity, such as ammonia, lactic acid and homocysteine, and human-made toxins that we are exposed to in our environment, food, and water. The liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic systems work together to ensure that toxins are transformed chemically to less harmful compounds and excreted from the body.

There are many different types of detox diets. Generally, a detox diet is a short-term diet that:
  • Minimizes the amount of chemicals ingested (for example, by eating organic food).
  • Emphasizes foods that provide the vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that the body needs for detoxification.
  • Contains foods, such as high fiber foods and water, that draw out and eliminate toxins by increasing the frequency of bowel movements and urination.
my day 1 juices...
before and after juicing, we had to drink this tea...i'm not a tea drinker so when i tasted it, aawwrrrkkk i almost vomit, not because it doesn't taste good but because i dont like tea, period!


even Alex like the taste of this chocolate almonds :-)

everything tasted good except this flavor...

Why do People go on a Detox Diet?

A growing body of research suggests that many of the chemicals we ingest daily through food, water, and air can become deposited in fat cells in our bodies. Toxins include pesticides, antibiotics and hormones in food, chemicals from food packaging, household cleaners, detergents, food additives, heavy metals, pollution, drugs, and cigarette smoke. A diet that lacks certain nutrients may also impair our natural ability to detoxify chemicals, which further leads to their build-up in the body.

The cumulative load, called the "body burden", is thought to lead to illness and has been linked to hormonal imbalance, impaired immune function, nutritional deficiency, and an inefficient metabolism. Signs are thought to include indigestion, poor concentration and sluggishness, headaches, bad breath, fatigue, poor skin, and muscle pain.

Hani's juices...the good  thing about the company is that, you can choose your flavors :-)

all juices should be consumed with 24 hours...they deliver daily into our doorstep...and guess what, we didn't even felt hungry at all...if only i have enough budget for the two of us, i will order it for 5 days...i'm paying 2,200 for my daily juices inclusive of the delivery charge per person, and since we're both using it, it cost me a number of penny if i ordered for 5 days...a friend advised me to just do-it-myself juicing...hopefully, i'll meet her friend to introduced me to their juicing sessions :-)
