and wind down with

Herbal tea

Any herbal tea or infusion of your choice
2 teaspoons flax seeds

snack attack


25 g (1 oz) sunflower seeds plus 1 apple


Instead of drinking your juices and smoothies quickly, take time to actually taste and enjoy the flavours. Allow the juice to rest in your mouth for a while, since this will stimulate the production of the salivary digestive enzyme amylase.


Begin the day with a little light stretching (stages 1–5 of the 15-minute workout are perfect), then go for a brisk 30-minute walk before your first juice. Either take a 15-minute walk at lunch or maybe try a metabolism-boosting session on a rebounder (a mini trampoline) if you have one. Finish the day with the full 15-minute workout.
