Michelle Williams for Vogue, October ‘11
I’m writing an article about the depiction of psychotic/homicidal behavior in cinema, and how often serial killers etc are shown to have had a childhood trauma that is seemingly the trigger for their behavior as an adult.
First of all, how prevalent do you think the link is? And secondly, is it more terrifying to see a serial killer who had a ‘normal’ childhood and therefore no apparent reason for committing such heinous crimes?
So, today is day five of my juice cleanse — which means since monday I’ve only consumed raw fruit and vegetables in juice form. This morning I woke up feeling light, and strong, and the whites of my eyes are sparklingly clear and my skin is radiant, which makes a refreshing change.
But last night I had such a raging headache, I thought the my head was going to explode. When you think about it, it’s quite terrifying the effect a cleanse has on your body when you confront the notion that your body is withdrawing from unrefined sugar and junk food in such a violent way.
And there was me thinking that as a Vegan who eats loads of fruit and veggies I was super healthy and this juice cleanse would only add to that.
If you haven’t tried one before, I can’t recommend it enough — maybe just start off with a three day cleanse and you’ll notice how pure and energised you feel. Amazing.
