It’s week 3 of the Juice Challenge here at Dial2Donate and we’ve become real connoisseurs of the juice world. Believe me, there have been some concoctions to delight the taste buds. There have also been some decidedly unsavoury blends. However, through trial and error we seem to be getting there.
After a sneaky late holiday at the start of our ‘Juicy Loser Challenge’ Doyle has had some making up to do. Credit where credit is due, he has hit the ground running and juiced like never before. Before taking a look at how Doyle and the other members of Dial2Donate’s juicers have done over the past 7 days, we thought that we’d delve a little deeper into Doyle’s experience.
Q. So, Doyle, what’s been the hardest part of the challenge so far?
A. The first few days have been pretty difficult, especially as my body went through its initial detox. Thankfully the headaches and moodiness have gradually worn off and I’m slowly feeling more energetic.
Q. Have your craving for treats stopped?
A. NO, I want EVERYTHING! When you can’t have something you crave it even more but after this week’s weight loss I know that resisting temptation is going to be worth every pound.
Q. How have your weekends been?
A. Not too bad actually, I’ve managed to be self-disciplined – which has been tricky but achievable. I did have a Sunday roast, which was amazing (I can’t lie).
Q. Have you got any top tips for creating the perfect juice?
A. Add orange to absolutely everything – it’s full of vitamins and disguises most other flavours.
As you’re about to discover Doyle is this week’s winning loser here at Dial2Donate. Well done & keep up the good work!
