On Dec. 23rd I watched " Fat,Sick & Nearly Dead" . WOW!!! What an eye opener!!
I knew the benefits of eating a whole foods plant based diet but, I never thought the changes could be so dramatic!! For the next few days, all I could think about were the two guys in the movie!! I still wonder about the trucker's brother. He seemed to be in denial about his health & needed help so BADLY!!! I think he was starting to get it by the end of the movie, I hope he's ok!!
Anyhoo, I decided on Dec. 30, 2011 to start a mini juice fast myself! I have about 40 lbs left to lose & decided to try & see how successful I would be with a mini fast. I mapped out a plan & went to the market to get all of my fruits & veggies!! I will have my juice during the day & in the evening have my normal small vegan meal. I'm planning on doing this for 15 days & then doing a total juice fast for the following 15 days. I don't know if I will be able to do that part or even want to when the first 15 days are up but, I'll see how it goes & proceed accordingly.
The first day I was really hungry by dinner time but thankfully, I had cut up plenty of fresh veggies to snack on when I got home! I know myself & if I hadn't planned ahead I would have overeaten or succumbed to something evil that wanted to wreck my plan!!
Day two I was not as hungry by dinner time! The smoothies are filling & I just feel healthy from the inside out!!!
Day three was GREAT!! No problems except the people at work said my juice looked gross! But, that's what I think when I see & smell (P-U) their bags of fast food!!
Day Four, so far so good!!!
Wish me luck!!!
Today is day 4 & I'm still feeling GREAT!! I have much more energy & it shows!!
Juice fasting has , in 4 short days, made a difference in me!!
