However that last point about electrolytes… leads me to coconut water.

Juice Cleanse

3 Day Juice Cleanse

3 day juice cleanse

A 3 Day Juice Cleanse called Schkinny Maninny – sounds like a dance doesn’t it? Or at the very least a fad product in the weight loss world, of which you should steer clear.

However I am pleased to report that Schkinny Maninny is none of those things.

When I first heard of it, I was totally sceptical. These are the thoughts that popped in my head…
