Hello! I have an interesting review of Urban Remedy’s Detox kit today. They offer juice cleanses and detoxes. Officially they call it “Wellness Kits” there are three options and I tried the 3 Day Metabolism Kit.
I didn’t really want to do a juice cleanse because I love running eating and repeating. That’s why Urban Remedy is awesome – their wellness kits come with healthy, clean, gluten free FOOD to eat in addition to the juices.
The Metabolism Cleanse includes all this:
It’s a great way to cleanse your system without feeling like you’re starving it at the same time.
Breakfast: Green Berry Juice
I blended this up with ice for a smoothie effect.
Thoughts: This was good. Like the ingredients.
Snack: No Oatmeal Cookies and tea
Thoughts: These are delicious. And when you pair the cookies with the tea it makes for a very satisfying snack.
Lunch: Time Machine juice
And you also take a shot of a “Spike” with each meal. For the Metabolism Kit it’s Diet Spike. I didn’t read the directions before my first one and just shot it like tequila. It was gross! Apparently you’re supposed to mix it with water or your juice. Ha!
Afternoon snack: An apple, tea and diet Spike.
Thoughts: I loved the salad. It was a delicious mix of kale and veggies and almonds with a light dressing. I didn’t like the Glow Juice at all and ended up blending it with frozen mango. Busted.
Overall: I loved that the cleanse provides food and juice. I love that it’s broken down into 3 meals and 2 snacks. So, when you start getting hungry you’re not tempted to cheat – it’s probably time for another meal or snack.
At under 1,400 calories it’s not enough for most active adults. I do appreciate that the menu pamphlet says to eat clean foods if you are exercising a lot and need more. It’s not an ‘all or nothing’ style which is healthy.
I only did the plan for 2 days because I had a 10k and half marathon race weekend coming up. I think I would do this again when I wasn’t training for anything and could just take walks and do yoga for a few days.
The big question: Was I hungry? Yes. The cleanse is about 1360 calories – A LOT less than I eat right now. So, I did add in some carrots and fruit to meals. But, I tried to only choose things from the cleansing foods list.
I’m in talks with Urban Remedy to get you some kind of discount code or add-ons if you buy a kit. I’ll let you know as soon as I have it!
Head’s up: the Urban Remedy site has a video that plays automatically when you open it. (So turn the volume down before clicking.)
Question: Doesn’t a PB&J smoothie sound amazing right now?
