New juicy convert Chris Liston (aged 40 from Swindon) lost 16lbs in 7 days on Jason Vale’s 7lbs in 7 Days Programme.
How did you hear about juicing?
I first heard about juicing from my step-daughter, but then I got hold of a Juice Master book and after a few pages I found it really interesting and Jason’s style of writing really made me laugh. I kept reading and started to become motivated to follow the program. I also downloaded the 7lbs in 7 Days app and listened to Jason’s motivational audio. It made me want to gain the benefits he was talking about and obviously I also wanted to lose a bit of weight.
Which programme did you follow and how did you find it?
I followed the 7lbs in 7 Days programme and started the Monday after I downloaded the app and had finished reading the book. I was pretty fired up and couldn’t wait to start. Mostly, I found it pretty easy, but I did have a few headaches. I’ve had them for years anyway, so I took painkillers, but they got easier as the week went on. I think giving up caffeine was a good move, as they may have been because of that.
What were your results?
I was quite blown away by my results. My weight loss was 16lb in 7 days, my body fat went down 3%, I lost 2.5 inches off my waist, 2 inches off my chest plus an incredible boost in energy after the 4th day. I knew I’d probably lose 7lbs but not 16! I’m moving around all day with my job so I guess that helped but I was totally gobsmacked I could lose over a stone in a week. I took a before and after photo of my face and you can even see its dropped off in just 7 days! I’m carrying on juicing and now I’ve got a Rebounder and DVD so I can up my daily exercise and keep going.
Was it easy or hard?
Generally I found it to be pretty easy. I only felt hungry a few times, but this didn’t last for more than a few minutes. Overall the juices were straight forward to make and the app really helped as I had the ingredients right there on the app tick list and then I played the video of Jason making it the first time I made each one.
Would you recommend it to anyone else?
Definitely! If you’re thinking of doing a juice diet for weight loss or just more energy then I highly recommend it. I have already recommended this plan to a few people, and will continue to do so. People have already started commenting I look different, so it makes an easy talking point.
Did anything make the process easier?
A number of factors really, firstly just the fact that I could see myself getting thinner, had more energy and despite the headaches, I was enjoying the programme. What is also important is that people around you are supporting you do it. Friends and family who want to know how you’re doing and send messages of support really help. Also the app was a great help. In honesty it’s only 7 days, and it was really easy to get going and I am still in shock with the results, but really excited too. I’ve started Turbo Charge Your LIfe in 14 Days programme so I can carry on the great start I’ve made. I’ll let you know how I get on…
