The Great Juice Fast Begins!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

This may turn out to be another fizzled attempt, but here goes.

If I remember correctly, my sister was the one who first suggested that I watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix, which we both have. After watching it she and her husband (she's never been overweight a day in her life, he's heavy) bought a juicer and tried it. I watched it, was very impressed, and mentioned to my sister that I was thinking about doing a juice fast in a month or so. She said that they had ordered a new, better juicer and I could have the old one, leading me to plan my fast for when they received the new one.

Anyway, she called last night and asked if I were busy, and could I meet her downstairs with the cart from the utility room downstairs. So I went out with the cart, and she had a brand new Black and Decker juicer and 8 (count 'em, 8) bags of fruit and vegetables from Walmart! Including lots of kale, honeydew melons, celery, carrots, apples, broccoli, oranges, spinach, pomegranates, cucumbers and a pineapple. There's probably some stuff I forgot, but it's all piled in the refrigerator.

So, this morning I put kale, carrots and apples in the ole' juicer and it actually tastes good! I don't like celery or cucumbers, but I'll try them. Maybe they aren't too bad with pomegranates or something.

I'm going to give away the eggs my sister gave me when her husband started his fast, and I'm officially started on my fast. Everything that won't last is in the freezer or will be donated to friends.

The first few days are supposed to be the hardest. I plan to blog every day, to help keep myself on track. Here I go!

  I, too, watched Fat, sick....and found it very interesting. Part of me really wants to try it the other part not so much. emoticon

    I just picked up the book "Crazy Sexy Diet" by Kris Carr.
I can't wait to start reading it. She also has an entire section about juicing on her website You should check it out.
Good Luck with your juicing and I can't wait to read your updates.

    Yes, keep us posted on how you do. I was always wondering if this works and I'm curious to see the results you get.

    The juice thing has never appealed to me, but you make it sound interesting so I've subscribed to your blog. Looking forward to seeing how you do. Who knows, you might convert me! Good luck with it
