Whether it’s a big life event that you want to look fit for, or simply a lifestyle change, you must have experienced the side effects crash diets bring. Lower numbers on the weighing scale, perhaps, but at the cost of dull skin, mood swings, brittle nails, and whatnot. Wanting to get in shape in a healthy way is one major challenge in Nepal, especially with very few detox programs around. However, I came across No Chini's detox package at just the right time - when I wanted to get fit but had no idea whatsoever how to go about it.


Removing any need for decision making, I was sent a selection of drinks from No Chini - a one day detox package and an order in which to consume them to reap the biggest rewards. This cleanse is a rainbow of large juices varying from bright green to the sweetest pink, spread out every couple of hours starting from eight in the morning to eight in the evening. Honestly, I was a bit hesitant to try the first drink of the day, Green Machine, due to its unlikely-to-be-tasty color. However, to my surprise, the drink tasted so rich and creamy. The fiber-rich smoothie is apparently made with banana and almonds with the goodness of spinach and gives you energy to keep going all day long. After tasting the Green Machine, excitement to try the rest of the flavors had me looking forward to the day. These included the Hydrator, which contains watermelon and chia seeds for omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, iron, and calcium, and the vitamin-packed Starburst with pineapples and coconuts. Without a doubt these juices mean business.

Containing more pulp, the No Chini juice tasted more like a smoothie, a substantial meal, increasing fibre intake as a result. Despite containing plenty of fruit, I didn’t find any of them overly sweet. The flavors were balanced, delicious, and I remember feeling much more focused and energetic during and after the cleanse; the juices were literally ‘Health In A Bottle.’ It’s important to note that No Chini juices are not about deprivation but rather about getting more good stuff in your body. Likewise, while juicing, if you feel you need to supplement your juice day with something solid to eat, you are recommended to have calorie dense foods like nuts. No Chini also offer a similar three-day detox cleanse that might provide just the kick-start to a new health regime that your body is crying out for. Do what feels right for your body and enjoy!
