The 5 day programme has included some delicious juices including:
- Turbo With A Kick!
- Berry Banana Crunch Smoothie
- The Natural Energiser
- Ruby Tuesday
- The Green Refresher
- Minty Sunshine
- Pear ‘n’ Parsnip
Oh, and each and every day has started with an awesome Ginger Shot! So does the programme live it to it’s claim of 5lbs in 5 days?
Well, I did this detox not really trying to lose weight, but rather to cleanse myself after 2 weeks of travel with a number of airport days (6 flights) and the various dubious food choices that are associated with this. It was my wife’s birthday this week and so Thursday night I had a break from the programme for a family meal and yet despite this I still lost 7lbs in just 5 days! This doesn’t surprise me having done a number of previous juice detoxs with similar results. Oh and for anyone who says the weight loss is temporary, I lost 12lbs on a juice detox at the start of 2012 and continue to lose a total of 47lbs (3 Stone 5lbs) by the end of the year!

2013 Miles in 2013
I am doing my 2013 miles in 2013 challenge in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as I have been surprised since I started fundraising for the CF Trust just how many people are unaware of this disease and so I hope my efforts will not just raise money, but also awareness of the UK’s most most common life-threatening inherited disease.
The first person to commit to sponsoring my 2013 mile challenge has committed to 1p per mile (£20.13 in total) and this got me thinking. I am hoping that as many as possible of those reading this will commit to do the same and the best thing is, if each person does this on a “pay as you go” type approach all you will need to part with is approx £2 just after each pay day. In January I completed 205.9 miles, in February I completed a further 200.9 miles and in March I completed 185.7 miles. If you can please spare £5.93 to help the Cystic Fibrosis Trust it will be greatly appreciated.

2013 Miles in 2013 – The rules
The rules for my 2013 miles in 2013 challenge are quite simple:
- All miles must be completely self powered (no motors, sails, etc)
- I must be able to evidence all miles, either via GPS or with a picture of any static gym equipment
To complete my 2013 miles I will be running, cycling, rowing and who knows, I might even try a few other self powered methods along the way.
