7lbs in 7 days Juice Master Diet. Does it Work?

Photo thanks to juicemaster.com

I tried this programme last week. It is effectively a juice detox, where you follow a plan which consists only of juices, made up of super good-for-you fruit and veg.

It is the most popular juice diet pretty much in the world, created by Jason Vale the 'Juice Master' himself. It has had literally millions of results, with people claiming to lose up to 14lbs in a week. But can this be good for you and is it a fad... or fantastic?

I bought the app, and only the app. Despite recommending the book for reading alongside the app, it comes with audio coaching, shopping lists and detailed recipes and programmes, so I definitely felt this was enough.

So, does it work?

Really really yes. No doubt. I went into it definitely as more of a cleanse/detox for my body, as I eat pretty healthily and go to the gym about 5 times a week, so the weight loss aspect wasn't my main focus, but I was definitely intrigued.

Firstly, the audio coaching really helps you get into the right mindset and puts you where you really need to be mentally with this programme. Not that this is a quick weight loss fix, but a kick start into a whole new life long healthy attitude towards food.

Secondly, the juices taste amazing. Really amazing. BUT that's all you can have... and it's not easy. Jason describes it as a 'mental' hunger that you might experience, but it's a big adjustment not chewing anything at all for a whole week. You definitely get used to it though and you feel progressively better as the days go on.

(You can't drink caffeine, so if you're an addict this may cause headaches as with all detox programmes, but they soon go and leave you feeling great... I promise!)

Despite BBQs going on, I sat there with my green juice, feeling pretty great to be honest. You really don't want to eat bad food by the end, and in terms of weight loss... I shed 6lbs in total over the week, without going to the gym, which is actually SO astonishing.

So, the big answer as I have said is... a solid yes. This works... BUT don't expect to keep any weight off if you go straight back to a bad routine, this is a lifestyle change. An in-app 14 day plan is available for £1.49 (the app is £4.99 initially), which guides you back into solid foods without reaching for the take out menu.

This is such a win, and I couldn't recommend it more. I will definitely do it again whenever I feel like a detox or cleanse, I have so much energy..my skin and hair look so much better, and I just feel sooo good. AMAZING.

If you have any questions, I'd love to help!

Lots of Love,


  1. Can't believe you did this post just when I was having a look at doing this program! I'm so glad to read it's something that works. I've been feeling low on energy and dependant on caffeine way too much lately so I'm keen to try this out.

    Thanks so much for your post! (:

    1. You are welcome, I hope you find it as rewarding as I did :)

  2. Even though I'm a fairly healthy person in general, I feel as though I'm going to find it hard to stick to just juices for a week...regardless, I'm going to give it a shot! Just out of interest, did you end up craving 'bad' foods towards the end, or was it fairly easy to stick to healthy foods?

  3. I found it when I was looking for a different sort of information but I am very interested in the article, It is nice to read such kind of good posts I like your work keep it up!
