After almost two years of being an active blogger who’s focusing more on hangout places, restaurants, and cafes in Surabaya (and other places), some things have changed in my life, and that’s including my weight, lol. I usually weigh about 44kg-46kg in general, but lately, the number gained to 48kg and it even reached
51kg once, and I freaked out, hahaha.. It’s just that, I’m not a person who really cares about my weight before this as I never gain any weight since junior high, and I have always been the skinny girl who can’t get fat.
BUT NOT ANYMORE *cry cry*
Of course, even though my credibility as a food blogger is now pretty much recognized as I have become fluffier. *no one believes in a skinny food blogger they said* but still, I’m a 20-something woman who needs to look carefully at my own appearance! #masijomblo #hahaha #becandalo So then, I tried to find some ways to weigh back down.
The first thing that I tried was to not eat, but I failed, pretty easily, hahaha.. I couldn’t help it, I love to eat, a lot *sigh* And I always unconsciously find myself snacking, lol.. So yeah, that one didn’t work for me. I have to keep eating, haha.. #gamauusaha Then the second effort was yogurt. I recently love to buy yogurt drinks, and sometimes I buy the actual yogurt. It did help me with my digestion, but not slimming me down. However, I still drink it regularly every day, because it tastes sooo good.
I actually have heard a lot of good things about detox with juices, but I never tried it because I never see the actual result, until I saw someone posting about her journey with detox juice and I saw her picture, her tummy is really slim! She told us in her caption that since she hit 30, her metabolism is not as good as before, so she got bloated easily now and looks like a 6-month-old preggie every time. So she started the 3 days detox and the result was amazing for her.
I didn’t know if it was because of the brand of the juice or if it will be the same with all those detox juices that are sold online, but
I'm really interested to give it a try! And because she lives in LA, of course, I won’t be able to get the juices that she drank, I have to find an alternate here in Surabaya. But like Afgan said, “Jodoh Pasti Bertemu” or “Soulmate will Certainly Meet”, out of nowhere,
Fruit Ministry contacted me and asked if I wanted to try their juices. Voila! YES YES YES!
Fruit Ministry is an online-based shop, where they sell healthy goodies. I knew Fruit Ministry way back before since the first time there was Basha Market, but I never tried any of their products. I read their philosophy, and it says,
"We select only the freshest ingredients available for our products. All our products are made without preservatives and no added refined sugar, all-natural" Hmm.. Legit!
I woke up around 08.00 AM and was about to drink the juice but then I realized I haven’t taken any picture of it. So I brainstormed about how can I got the picture, rushed down and took the juices, picked the photo location, and started clicking the shutter. It took me an hour for that because this session is a bit challenging. Then I decided to take just a clear picture. haha.. I started pretty late but I guess it won’t change the effect as long as I finished all the bottles in a day.
Into The BeetRp. 35.000 || 7/10
Beetroot, Apple, Carrot
Mind Refresh, Sharp Vision, Stress Relief, Detoxify, Max Energy
For the start, this juice tasted pretty normal. It has the sweet taste from the apple, but the beetroot gave an aftertaste like you’re drinking grass including the soil, lol. But overall, I still could finish the juice.
Mid Morning :
Rp. 35.000,- || 7.5/10
Green Grape, Chinese Kale, Celery, Cucumber
Cancer-Fighting, Skin Glow, Curb Appetite
I was so hesitant to drink this one because I read what it contained inside and I just knew that I won’t like it. The plan was to drink it at around 11.00 AM but I drank it an hour later because of too much hesitation. When I opened the bottle, it smelled really like greens. kind of refreshing actually. And it didn’t taste as horrible as I imagined, it turns out pretty good. #fiuh Ps : Before I took this juice, I cheated and ate a half-cm potato. Hopefully, that doesn’t count.
Rp. 35.000,- || 7.5/10
Strawberry, Watermelon, Coconut, Water
Energy Boost + Metabolism, Prevents Constipation, Thirst Quencher
I thought this one is going to be the best one or the tastiest, but no, it just tasted okay. Maybe because there’s water added so there was not much of a flavor there, but it’s still joyfully drinkable. I started to pee a lot on the third juice. And I noticed that it changed color to red.
Rp. 35.000,- || 9 /10
Pineapple, Jicama, Mint, Orange
Stronger Immunity, Lower Blood Pressure-
I never liked Pina Colada Cocktail, but surprisingly, this juice has the best taste of all! Well, it’s not like the real Pina Colada Cocktail, it was totally different (maybe that’s why it tasted so good, lol). It’s really refreshing, like drinking soda. This is the most fun one to drink.
Late Noon :
Rp. 35.000,- || 9/10
Apple, Carrot, Celery
Stronger Bones & Teeth, Soothes Migraines & Aches-
This one unexpectedly has the sweetest taste of all! I was afraid that I wasn’t able to drink it because it contains celery and carrot, egh.. But NO! It turns out really good! Loved it! Definitely one of my most favorite.
Rp. 35.000,- || 7.5/10
Apple Celery Lettuce Chinese Kale Cucumber Spinach Lemon
Super Detox Blood Cleanse pH balance Regulates Bowel Movements
I remember I drank this juice pretty quickly, not because it tasted bad, I just felt kind of thirsty because the previous juice was really sweet, and this one has a neutral taste, so I drank it pretty fast. I didn’t really remember how was the flavor, nothing really stood out, but okay 🙂
Bedtime Snacks :
Rp. 35.000,- || 7/10
Purified Water, Almonds, Dates, Pink Salt
Packed with Calcium & Proteins, Promotes Deep, Sound Sleep.
Finally! The last one to drink! This Almond Mylk I believe really gave me a good sleep. I remember I was drinking it like a baby with a bottle of milk. I almost fell asleep while drinking it, lol #mungkinsayalelah
The day before I started One Day Detox with Fruit Ministry, my weight was 47,5kg and as you can see, my tummy was kinda bloated. After I finished detoxing, my weight shrunk to45,5kg and my tummy is less bloated, or you might say it’s
flat! If I’m adding a workout routine, I’m sure the result would be better than this. but only drinking the juices is already enough and now I really believe that
detoxing is actually WORKING!
But the thing about detoxing is that you will find yourself starving and constantly wanting to eat something salty because all those juices were sweet. I honestly cheated several times. I ate one piece of crackers, one piece of nugget, one centimeter of potato, and an egg. It was all because I need it to neutralize my tongue from all the sweetness of the juice. But despite the cheating, I still lost 2 kg, so.. it’s still tolerable.. ;P
Okay, guys! Last but not least, I highly recommend the juice detox by
Fruit Ministry, it really works for me, so it might work for you too! Would be MUCH better if you’re combining the detox with a workout routine. Besides juices, they are also selling almond mylk, granola, and a bowl. You can pick based on your own needs and your own preferences. 🙂 I hope this post helps, and see you guys in my next review! *kiss*
