Weight before: 10 stone 9lbs
Weight after: 10 stone 2 lbs

Professional verdict:


Dietitian and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, Dr Frankie says, “the idea of ‘detox’ is a load of nonsense. There are no pills or specific drinks, patches or lotions that can do a magic job. For the vast majority of people, a sensible diet and regular physical activity really are the only ways to properly protect your health.”

Anna's verdict:


It definitely works and I managed to keep the weight off for a couple of months. But a week of thinking about food was not my bag. Sure its in a relaxing spot, but there’s only so many books you can read while staving off hunger pangs so bad you just want to eat your flip flop.
