🇬🇧 I’ve tested the KBK Juice Cleanse

Hi how are you today? This article is going to be written in English as the service is only accessible in the UK. I was endlessly scrolling on Instagram when I was an ad for KBK’s juices. For a while, I wanted to do a fasting retreat in Bali to reset my inner energy but COVID and I don’t have the budget which is the actual reason. So, I thought a cleanse in London would do!

The company’s promises:

Our juice cleanse is a great choice if you’re looking to boost your immune system, give your body a reboot, or if you’re starting a new meal plan or any diet. Give your digestive system a break and allow your body to heal and repair itself.

The program

I had to drink five bottles a day:

  1. Fruity. This juice promotes healthier skin. It’s a mix of orange, lemon and cherry juices. It is so sour! ahah I am not fond of orange juice. It has to be drunk within the first hour of waking up. I
  2. Zen. This juice is high in antioxidants and is a good source of fibre. It contains thyme, apple, ginger and lemon. It’s my favourite taste-wise. You can drink it three hours after you drank the first juice.
  3. Red. It should provide energy with vitamin C and antioxidants. It’s a mix of strawberry, apple, lemon juices with basil. I thought I wasn’t going to like this one but actually, I enjoyed it. I wish we could feel the basil more. This a juice to drink at lunchtime on its own or with a low-calorie lunch.
  4. Charcoal lemonade. It contains fibre pectin which reduces hunger. It contains activated coconut charcoal, lemon, lime, water and agave. It should be drunk between 5pm and 7pm.
  5. Verde. It helps with hydration and is high in antioxidants. It contains cucumber, apple, kale, lemon, mint. They advise to drink it before 9pm.

The company advice to drink 2-3 litres of water per day, to have low calories meals and to avoid alcohol, nicotine and coffee. All the juices are made locally.

My experience

I would say this cleanse did no harm but did not make miracles on me. I am glad I went through the five days. I did not completely starve myself and I ate meals when I was hungry. On the third day, I felt exhausted and hungry multiple time of the day but the following day I was so energised! I felt amazing and didn’t feel hungry except at lunchtime. The hardest time for me was to not eat late in the afternoon. I tend to binge eating a lot from 4pm. On the third day, I ate more than previous days, I felt hungry from lunch to late afternoon. The more I was eating the more my belly was hurting. The first day I had really no issues drinking the juices. The second day drinking the first juice was a pain because it felt so acidic! I actually hate orange juice. Verde would be the hardest to drink for most I think. Curiously, I enjoyed drinking cucumber and kale. ahah! The hardest part was to drink 2 to 3 litres of water a day in addition to the juices.

In regards to the promises of a clearer skin, I didn’t see any chances during and after the cleanse. I usually don’t have a lot of imperfections. I was surprise I didn’t miss coffee so much. I don’t plan on drinking coffee on a daily basis anymore.

This program also made me realise that my portions are off additionally to binge eating. I felt hunger but no stomach aches. This makes me realise how much discomfort I just got used to. I want to be more sensible in regards to the quantity of food I am having on a daily basis.
