The hubby came up with the great idea to complete the Arden’s Garden Two Day Detox together. Taking two days to complete the Arden’s Garden detox sounded like a great way to jumpstart our weight-loss journey. This Waistline Wednesday will share my personal experience as I try Arden’s Garden for the first time.
The 2 Day Detox is a unique blend of fresh juices that helps cleanse, detoxify and rejuvenate your body. These fresh citrus juices supply you with minerals, antioxidants and more than 100% of the recommended daily allowance of essential vitamins. The 2 Day Detox is based on the time-tested European method of periodic fasting which cleanses the body. Drink 8 bottles (1 gallon) of detox each day – as much distilled water as desired – and remember, no food!
10:30 am Late start I know but I just had my first bottle of Arden’s Gardens Two Day Detox juice. I had to share my first reaction, the first word that came to mind was rough. Part of the reason I waited so long to get started on this detox is I was dreading the taste. The grapefruit in this grapefruit, orange and lemon juice mixture is the more prominent taste. Oddly enough the hubby liked the taste. At least one of us does.
12:30 pm I just now completed my third bottle of Arden’s Gardens Juice and I am already getting adjusted to the taste. Did I mention in addition to the eight bottles of 16.5oz juice you are allowed to drink as much distilled water as you like. So I am aiming to drink a gallon of water as well. I just felt my first hunger pain, but will keep busy to try to keep my mind off of food.
5:30 pm The combination of juice and water really has you visiting the bathroom often.
9:12 pm I am ready to get in bed. I’ve only had slight hunger pains and a headache, but overall I feel fine. I am dreading drinking this last bottle for the day. At least I will get a break from it. while I sleep.
9:00 am I woke up and immediately hopped on the scale and I’ve lost 5.6 lbs! Before you say it I know its water weight, but I am still excited to think of the great detoxifying that must be going on. One juice down seven more to go.
Noon: Why did it take just over 24 hrs of me being on Arden’s Gardens 2 Day Detox to realize that it wasn’t the taste of the drink that bothered me but the acid. You see I have acid re flux and the combo of grapefruit, orange and lemon juice is a trifecta of acid. i just have to make sure to NOT drink one right before I lay down and all will be well.
9:00 pm Day two was better than day one physically. There was little to any hunger pains and no headaches, but cravings kicked in by mid day.The craziest things is what I am craving, almonds and cranberries. I am going to take that as a positive sign of things to come. I think I will call it an early night to ward off any more cravings.
Arden’s Garden Two Day Detox Final Results
Let me first say if you don’t know I’m a BIG woman so the amount of weight I loss would be more than your average person would. With that said I lost a total of 10.2 lbs doing the detox. Overall two days of the Arden’s Garden Detox is so worth it to jump-start your weight loss goals and aid in kicking curving your cravings for sugars and processed food.
Have you ever tried a juice detox? How was your experience?
I’m definitely going to try it!
I’m allergic to oranges, sadly – but I will check them out and see what other products they offer. Detoxing is a great way to kickstart a healthy lifestyle – I do one every few months or so. Keep it up, girl!
