Firstly, YES Brighton is finally giving London a run for its money. We now have cold pressed juice bars, The Breakfast Club and rumour has it we are getting a Soho House. Basically I shall plant my feet in the sand because there ain’t no where else to go. Also I really want to see how this i360 turns out.
Secondly, I love to do juice cleanses. FYI.
Eat Naked is run by Stacie Stewart who was a Masterchef finalist, is a DJ, author, columnist, TV presenter and an innovative cook who makes healthy eating easy and owns Eat Naked. Eat Naked is a clean eating deli tucked into Brighton’s South Lanes and they offer everything from protein balls, to superfood salads, nut milks, cold pressed juices and raw desserts which are healthy and tastier than any Mars bar.
What is included in an Eat Naked full detox package?
15 juices, 5 juices a day. A couple of lemons to have with warm water.
The detox package includes:
- A Body Shop body brush
- A coffee scrub body treatment
- A tea strainer
- Loose leaf green tea
The first day tends to be full of optimism and motivation and by the evening you can already notice a difference in cellulite and I had a flat stomach at bedtime, which was motivation enough to keep going. I also had a really good sleep.
I awoke on the second day and started the dry brushing regime, Stacie had given me some print out instructions, but also a personal demo, which was needed. I have a toddler – I don’t have time to shower, let alone ‘dry brush my body’, but I made sure that it was the first thing I did, before putting my clothes on. I found it to be really relaxing and luxurious. I then had my green tea before any juice, which tasted like a holiday in a cup. The second day was slightly tougher because I have a fussy eating toddler so I was trying to convince him to eat pasta whilst “mama had her juice”. Everyone was confused and hungry, but as soon as 3pm hit I kept reminding myself that I was already half way through. I then showered in the evening and covered myself in the coffee scrub, which was heaven. I was off the caffeine whilst on the cleanse and the coffee scrub was as good as getting my fix. It was so exfoliating and left my skin feeling nourished. I actually felt spoilt.
Third day arrived, I dry brushed my body, I had my green tea and I noticed that I was in a rhythm, a good routine and it was already over! My skin was glowing, my tummy flat and not inflamed, cellulite was gone and I had a lovely coffee scrub shower to look forward to before bed, where I slept like a toddler. (Because my baby did not sleep – stupid saying).
I love the 3 day cleanse! It fits around my routine, I never feel hungry as it is packed with protein, it curbs my cravings and makes me look as close to a Victoria Secrets model as I will ever get. Better yet, I am never irritable or tired – as a mother this is so important. Lots of other cleanses advise you to stay home and rest. Chance would be a fine thing!
Why do I juice?
I suffer with IBS. I can easily go from feeling trim and healthy to looking 9 months pregnant and writhing in pain. I try and juice regularly to combat any upset and give my guts a break. The Eat Naked juices are packed with superfoods, nutrients and they are gut friendly. They really help with any bloating, gas (tmi) or inflammation that I often experience with IBS. Stacie also suffers with IBS and even documents her symptoms on her instagram, which is how I found her. I have also mentioned a billion times, so forgive me for bringing it up again… but my skin has never been the same since I birthed a human, diet is key to my skin troubles and if my skin is bad – it effects my mood and confidence. Once I finish a cleanse my skin, hair and nails are healthier, noticeably stronger and I feel restored and motivated to continue a healthier lifestyle.
How much weight do you lose on an Eat Naked 3 day juice cleanse?
I honestly do not do these cleanses to lose weight. I love that I have a flat stomach (especially since birthing a human & suffering with IBS) and no cellulite (miracle), but the weight loss is a bonus. I have to add that just by eating solid food the day after the cleanse your weight will most likely go back to your elbows. I have done the cleanse a few times now and each time I have lost 5 lbs, but I am not a stone lighter if that makes sense? (3 x 5). Eat Naked state that their typical weight loss from clients can range from 4 – 8 lbs in 3 days! Juicing is an effective weight loss aid, but it is not something that is recommended to do 24/7. Stacie has a tonne of knowledge and advice about nutrition, she is the person to ask if you want guidance on how to maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Would you do an Eat Naked cleanse again?
Yes, yes, yes! I am fully invested in Stacie and Ryan – I love their philosophy and Stacie puts her heart and northern soul into everything she makes, bakes and creates and it is inspiring. From the coffee scrub, which is made by Stacie, to the personal dry brushing demo, you can tell that Stacie really cares and she knows her stuff. She always makes time for her customers and the love and attention that goes into all her recipes is clear, like my skin. Haha. I cannot recommend Eat Naked enough for lunch, coffee or a cleanse.
