My ladyfriend recently watched a documentary about a man who went on a strict juice diet for some insane amount of time. He lost an insane amount of weight and improved his health immensely. I keep toying with the idea of trying it myself and see how far I can take it. I’m not exactly overweight or anything, it’s just that winter is ending which means that I have been incredibly lazy and inactive for the past five months and I don’t like the way it makes me feel. I have already started to get active again. I’ve broken out my bike and gone for a few rides, but a little help never hurts. Also, I like challenging myself.
So there I sat with the idea of this juice diet swimming around in my head and I saw this bottle of Fave juice sitting in my fridge. In the documentary the guy only drinks fresh juice, but I know I can’t afford that so I figure anything that is 100% juice with no added sweeteners would work for me. I thought to myself “I’m going to start this right this very morning.” I grabbed the juice, poured myself a decent size glass, and began my journey. As soon as I took my first step of my journey the problems arose. This doesn’t taste quite right. Let me rephrase that, this tastes like it should, but not the way I want it to. I wanted it to be a nice citrus juice that masked the flavor of the vegetables contained, but retained their nutrition. Instead what I got was a vegetable juice that had a citrus flavor to it. There are two distinct juices in this bottle and they are battling it out for the top flavor. Unfortunately for me the vegetable juice is winning out. I have no problem with vegetables. I love them. I eat them daily. My problem is that the fruit juice has sweetened the vegetable flavor and it just tastes strange. I’m sure there are loads of people out there that would love this juice, so I’m going to give it a three-bottle review. There is nothing intrinsically gross about it; it’s just not really my thing. I’ve already begun rethinking this juice diet, and I’m pretty sure that by the time 4pm rolls around I will have eaten some bagels and hummus. I am a weak man.
