Last year, the famous Korean comedian, Kwon Mi Jin, earned the title of “Diet Master,” when she lost 51kg in one year. Her dieting secret was not plastic surgery, drug use, or unhealthy fasting. But it was “Detoxifying Juice,” also known as “해독주스,” in Korean.
Kwon introduced her personalized recipe to the public, and this soon prompted various TV shows to feature her and her juice, which gained approval from not only the public, but also from Korean doctors. Now, Kwon’s detox juice has launched a new trend in health and diet with its “cleansing method” that introduces a healthy approach to weight loss and body refreshment. The juice cleanses the body of compacted food and toxins, relieving constipation and aiding in vitamin deficiency, cardiovascular health, and even acne.
Detox juice works best when consumed everyday: thirty minutes before breakfast and thirty minutes before dinner. However, be warned! Never replace all your meals with the detox juice, hoping to lose weight. The primary purpose of the detox juice is to filter the waste in your body for improved health. If your sole purpose is to lose weight, then it is advised that more vegetables should compose the detox juice rather than fruits or other sugars. Kwon Mi Jin, the “Diet Master,” took her diet a step further by eating all her meals along with the detox juice, and even exercising daily.
With notable experience from drinking the detox juice for many months, I would like to point out that this juice not only produces amazing results in weight loss, but that it has a simple, convenient recipe, adding onto its charm. The only thing to do is chop and boil the vegetables, then dump all of them to the blender machine, Try it yourself!
Here is the recipe to the “Detoxifying Juice.” (Courtesy of stacefacelovessushi):
Ingredients: 1 long carrot, 1 bunch of Broccoli, 1 Tomato, 1 Cabbage, 1 Apple, 1 Banana, Water
1. Chop up all the vegetables (Carrot, Broccoli, Cabbage, and Tomato)
2. Put the vegetables in a pot and add water.
3. Start the stove in Medium Heat, slowly cooking the vegetables. When the water starts boiling, leave the pot for 15 minutes, stirring the vegetables once in every 5 mins.
4. Use a blender to blend the cabbage, carrot, broccoli, and tomatoes together. Add 1/2 Apple and 1/2 Banana as well in order to improve the taste.
