An effective digestive system is the key to a slim and trim bod. But sometimes this vital system needs a bit of a nudge to boost its performance. If you can't shift the pounds, or you're feeling bloated or lacking energy, it's time to give your system a break. When you eat, your gut breaks down food, separating nutrients from waste and eliminating leftovers via your bowel. It sounds simple but this fine-tuned process is actually pretty complex. And there are a whole host of ways you could be preventing this system from working at its full capacity. Gulping down food quickly, making poor meal choices and overdoing the alcohol can put a strain on digestion, making it harder to supply your body with the goodies it needs.

But never fear! This is where our three-day alkalising juice detox can help, offering fabulous weight-loss gains safely in a short space of time. Results vary from person to person, of course, but you can expect to lose around three pounds on the diet. Skipping solids in favour of a short-term liquid diet can help to reduce the digestive burden, and boost your nutrient intake. Nutrients you get from juices and smoothies are great as they're already in a pre-digested form, so they can be shuttled directly into cells where they can do their work efficiently. Giving your hard-working gut a well-earned rest!

‘When you detox you free up digestive energy and allow the body the time to repair tissues and process toxins that are stored in the liver and the body’s fat cells,’ explains Geeta Sidhu-Robb, nutritionist and founder of Nosh Detox (noshdetox.com). Juicing is also a fabulous way to break any bad habits and get started on the path to inner and outer vitality. Try Geeta’s three-day alkalising detox here.
