Route to being a Yummy Mummy :: Neera Detox & Diet Plan

Last month I shared with you my goal to becoming a 'Yummy Mummy' today I'm going to tell you how I went about achieving just that.

Hadara's Weight Loss Program consisted of a Neera Detox and a Diet Plan which YY worked out for me.

What is Neera Detox? 
Its a liquid diet regime based on a totally natural drink made from tree syrup, mixed with fresh lemon juice, filtered water and a pinch of cayenne pepper. The syrup is high in natural plant sugars, thus provides the body with energy during the fast and satisfy hunger pangs.



Neera Detox


What does it contain?
Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup is made from a special blend of organic tree syrup from the sap of 5 types of trees - 4 rare Asian palm trees and the maple tree. This is pure organic syrup, vastly different from the maple syrup found in stores, which can be over 90% artificially synthesised from sugar and corn syrup. The palm syrup comes from the sap of the Arenga, Kita, Nipah and Palmyra palm trees, which grows in forests in different areas of South East Asia. The sap from each type of tree is extracted using techniques introduced and monitored by Swiss aid workers. The sap is carefully turned into syrup and then the syrups are blended and canned. No sugar, preservatives or chemical processes are used.




Freshly squeezed lemon juice provides vital vitamin C and potassium, acts as an internal detergent and an effective agent in dissolving fat.


When life gives you lemons make Neera Drink


Cayenne pepper is know for increasing your body's blood flow. It contains capsicum, the main ingredient to health wellness. Medical studies show Cayenne can lower your blood pressure, increase poor circulation, weak digestion, heart disease, chronic pain, sore throats, headaches and toothaches. Ayurveda and Chinese medicine have used cayenne to treat poor digestion and gas for centuries. Plus, recent studies have shown it can protect cells from cancer. The heat effect of Cayenne increases metabolism to help your body burn fat, an appetite suppressant and promotes circulation.

Water the source of life. Although it is recommended to use distilled water which is clear of impurities you can also use filtered water.

There are 2 types of detox plans:

(1) Full Detox

The full detox is a 7 to 10 day fasting where you are not allowed to eat any solid foods, drinking only Neera Drink and recommended liquids i.e. water, senna tea. . This plan requires experience and determination.

(2) Relaxed Version

Replace either 1 or 2 meals a day (breakfast and dinner) with the Neera Drink and drink lots of water. Have a healthy lunch but abstain from sugary food, processed food, red meat, fried foods, wheat, dairy products, caffeine & alcohol. As these are all food that tax our natural digestive/cleansing system inhibiting the body's ability to deal with previously stored toxins and wastes. The relaxed programme works by lenghtening the time each night that the body can cleanse. It does however take longer to detox this way, which is why the relaxed version should be done for a month or more depending on your goal.

First I want to share with you my before and after pictures. The point of the pictures were to see if I could actually see a difference in my body after going on the Neera Detox for 1 month.

Front and Sides 'Before' and 'After'


I did the 'Relaxed Version'. YY gave me an 'Elimination Diet' list on food I can eat and what I have to avoid. During the detox period I also had to stop having coffee, tea (except herbal tea), alcohol, sugary food/drinks, dairy, wheat, red meat, ALL fried food, convenience/packaged food.

The syrup has more taste of maple syrup and the drink itself is really delicious! Trust me I have tried 'many' diet shakes/mixes, they taste somewhat awful and I dread drinking them. With Neera I'm always looking forward to my next drink!


My Concoction - 2 tbsp of Neera, lemon juice (1/2 a lemon) & a pinch of cayenne pepper
mixed with 300ml of filtered water


I'm not going to lie, the first week was horrendous! I'm a coffee addict I need my morning cuppa to kick start the day else I will be a cranky grouch! Having to quit coffee during the detox period was a harrowing experience, I was like a drug addict going through cold turkey, I suffered from caffeine withdrawal syndrome - feeling lethargic, body aches, restlessness and had constant headaches too! (*Coffee lovers/addicts you know what I mean)


This is me without coffee, not funny


In my third week I overcame my cold turkey and was no longer craving for my coffee fix. My body was also more accustom to having less sugar for energy and took to burning my fats (I could tell!). I felt amazing, more energized, slept better and my appetite has also grown smaller.

The Challenge - It's all in the MIND.

Mind over matter. The thing is we are all accustomed to eating whenever and whatever we want, the discipline of not taking any solid food is very daunting! Eating is a habit and like any other habit its not easy to get rid off even if its temporarily.

I replaced both breakfast and dinner with the Neera Drink, eating only non-carbo food for lunch. I was always feeling hungry, exhausted (both mentally and physically), grumpy and had difficulty concentrating. I felt I was turning into a zombie and wondered how I was going to get through the rest of the month. I constantly crave for food especially so for food I cannot eat! The temptation to cheat and eat was great. BUT I was determine not to give in to temptation, I had to be strong  and preserve else I will not be able to reach my goal.

I started to learn how to cheat my body into thinking I'm actually eating by chewing on water. Some days I can even just live on nuts, fruits and vegetables with additional Neera Drinks and I won't feel hungry.


Drinking warm water with lemon throughout the day helps to flush out toxins, keeps you hydrated & full


YY did not restrict my eating habits but introduce healthier things into my diet and taught me the golden rule - "No Processed Food!".

The detox did make me think about my diet and food habits, and since then I have made a bit more of an effort to put better things into my body.

Seeing the result of having lost 2kg in a month was indeed encouraging for me to press on. However, I was also skeptical - will I put on the weight I lost when I stop drinking Neera? I decided to test it out and stopped taking Neera for a month. To my surprise I was able to maintain my weight lost and didn't put back what I lost previously.

Now I'm back on my Neera Detox regimen as I want to lose another 8kg more so stay tuned for my next update on my Neera Detox journey.

I definitely advise doing this, if you want to lose weight, lead a healthier lifestyle or feel that you have been overdoing it and need to cleanse your system thoroughly.
