A blogger at Fashionista tested out LA's Ritual Cleanse and writes that although she lost six pounds on the three-day juice diet, she gained it all right back afterward. It didn't sound like a positive experience at all: "Unlike some people, I didn’t feel particularly energetic or glowy during or after my cleanse. And I felt bloated throughout the whole thing, so it’s not like I would have felt good about walking a red carpet in a Herve Leger bandage dress." [Fashionista]
