Hi loves! How are you? We are great, just enjoying the great weather in the Netherlands. Lots of you were asking us about our stay at Longevity in Algarve, so we decided to do a blog about it.
As you know, we really LOVE all kind of food, especially sweet stuff, as ice-cream, cookies, chocolate and go on. When Longevity proposed a Juice Detox Short Break, we knew we had to try that! This juice program takes at least three days and cleanse your whole body. It boosts your health with a mild detoxifying diet or juice fasting, cleansing Spa treatments and energizing daily group activities. We knew it would be hard for us, to miss all the sweets and wine for a few days, but we think that a healthy body is also very important, so we gave it a try. We had 5 liquid meals a day and lots of tea and water. It seemed very hard to do, but the ambiance in the resort is so zen and healthy, that you really get motivated. And also, it was great weather, so that helped a lot. We always feel less hungry when it’s hot outside. We really didn’t expect that, but it was really fun to do! Every day, there are different activities organized, as yoga, pilates, stretching, core training, fit ball, zumba, jogging, bike tour and different walks, which you can join, and we really liked that.
The resort itself, is really beautiful, with a huge pool and all these little cute colorful houses. The restaurant is opened for the juices, but they of course also serve (healthy) food, for people who does’t want to do the liquid diet. You can do the diet for 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7. At first, 3 days seemed a lot for us, the always hungry food lovers, but afterwards, we would love to do that for 7 days! It’s really relaxing and we felt soooo recharged after the short stay of 3 days. It was fun to see, that lots of different people join the diet. We have seen lots of girlfriends, doing it together, but also couples and people alone. Young and old. Really cool! We can’t wait to go back for a little longer very soon ❤
