My Personal Journey With A New Diet.

I've been eating healthy since after Christmas now and actually stuck to using the famous Juice Plus Complete shakes as meal replacements for my breakfast and sometimes lunch (or I will have a healthy lunch). I don't really agree with fad diets and skipping meals so taking the shakes instead help gives you all the nutrients you need plus I mix it with frozen fruit to make it extra tasty. There is so more info on the science behind Juice Plus HERE.

I've been careful not to make myself feel ill and I did at one point start getting headaches and feeling dizzy so I made sure I have snack of fruit inbetween the day and also make sure I have a meal everynight! I am always healthy with my dinner or if not (e.g pasta) I make sure I have a smaller portion.

By all means I don't let this diet control me at all, I am super naughty on Saturdays I eat what I fancy and haven't stopped the booze. Another thing I haven't stopped is drinking tea, I do use skimmed milk now however small pleasure in life such as a brew when you fancy it is super important to not make the diet feel like a chore.

Juice Plus Complete prep.
250ml of Skimmed milk,
1 scoop of Juice Plus Complete,
Mixed frozen fruits.

I bought 6 tins of the shake formula (3 in chocolate and 3 in vanilla) and have done a 4-month payment plan of £24 per month. I actually started this before Xmas and then pigged out over Xmas so re-started again. Since Jan 6th I have lost 5lbs - and thats with cheating! I also want to exercise more and I have re-started Yoga and meditation which I have another post about at the end of the month.

Juice Plus Recipe idea
A Fitting message on my glass - Don't Worry, Bee Happy! (Theres a bee - get it!)

Along side the shakes I've also been taking Immunaid. These are just flavourless pastilles in which you take 2 a day to help support your natural defenses. The Immunaid energizes your 'good' bacteria rather than increasing it therefore working in harmony with your body. There is some more info HERE on their website.

Have any of you tried Juice Plus before? What did you think?



  1. I've actually never heard of Juice Plus, but it's really interesting to read about your experience with them - personally, I generally substitute a full breakfast with a protein shake in the morning, I think as long as you're getting the right nutrients and not making yourself miserable, then there's no real problem, right? Good luck with the rest of your weight loss journey! xx

  2. I totally agree with you hun, diets should be balanced and not make us feel miserables and cheating days that we allow ourselves to eat whatever we fancy are really important! I've been trying to eat more healthy and I've made some changes now like replacing the cow milk for almond milk! These vitamins sound really good too, I've been taking Centrum Women and it works wonders! xxx

  3. This is interesting! I did Slim Fast once with meal replacement shakes and hated it - I was hungry all the time. I've recently lost a stone with Slimming World and love it because pasta isn't counted as bad. In fact, I can eat as much as I want and still lose weight. I don't understand the method in the madness, but it works for me, and sounds like this is working for you too :) X

  4. Ooh what a good idea to mix frozen fruit! I can't stand not eating and having a drink instead, I get wayyy to hungry but if it's working for you well done :) xx

  5. I've never heard of this before. It actually looks tasty to say its a meal replacement!

  6. I've not heard of Juice Plus but it looks really tasty with the frozen fruit! Its definitely important to be able to fit healthy eating around your life - I couldn't give up eating in restaurants and social drinking but do try to be healthy when I can! x

  7. I've been eating better for about 2 months now and I've lost quite a lot of weight but I need to focus on eating more fruit and veg. Immunaid sounds good too!
