Lauren, 31, admits that whilst she found the experience tough she’s pleased with how she’s come out it feeling.

‘I’m not going lie it’s been very challenging but the most rewarding thing I have ever done!’ the reality star wrote.

‘I feel powerful and my skin is tanned and glowing the whites in my eyes are sparkling ! My internal body is now healed and my clothes are 2 Big!’

She also stressed that it wasn’t just about slimming down as she wanted to ‘cleanse’ her body too.

‘I am now ready … let’s have ya LG,’ Lauren added to the post.

In the photos Lauren models a slim-fitting top and leggings as she pouts for the camera with her long brunette locks on show.

Many fans praised the TV star, with one commenting: ‘You must feeling amazing !!!’

And another wrote: ‘Always beautiful, but looking smoking girl!!!’

The reaction was divided though as some Instagram users questioned Lauren’s decision to embark on such a regime.

‘i do hope you realise there’s much more to you then how you look though. You can do so much more with life other than doing selfies/cosmetic surgery, chasing unavailable men and starving yourself..,’ one follower posted, whilst another suggested that she should focus on a ‘healthy lifestyle’ over ‘fad diets’.

Lauren hit back at this though by explaining: ‘it’s not a diet .. it’s a cleanse’

It comes after the Essex girl was criticised last month for admitting that she was ‘starving’ on her cleanse when she replied to a fan’s comment, prompting some to label her a ‘terrible role model’.

Lauren has always been open about her battles with her body and recently confessed to having had liposuction to get rid of her ‘lumps and bumps’.
