What a great day! Sunny outside and sunny inside. After five days of eating clean and three days of doing the Hungry for Change detox cleanse, I've now started a seven day juice fast. I was going to follow along with the World's Biggest Juice Detox led by Jason Vale aka "The Juice Master" but his juices use a lot of fruit. Because my lovely partner has type 1 diabetes and cannot drink a lot of fruit juice, I've decided to join her in drinking primarily green juices with very little fruit.
For breakfast today I had the Mean Green Detox juice from the movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". I added a tsp of spirulina and a scoop of my Greens+ detox blend. By breakfast, I mean 1pm because that is when I was finally hungry. By 2:45pm I was starving so I had my second juice of the day called Winter White, made primarily with fennel. I am not a fan of that blend and so I will not drink it again. At 5:30pm or so I had my third juice which was the Super Green Detox from the Hungry for Change cleanse. I drank my fourth juice shortly thereafter and to tell you the truth, I don't even remember doing it. Anyway, it was called Holiday Green Elf from www.rebootwithjoe.com/
. It was very good and so I shall definitely make that one again. I still have my fifth juice to drink which is another Mean Green, plus my dessert juice a carrot/ginger/orange juice. It's currently 7:30pm and I don't really know if I'll have a chance to drink two more juices before bed. I am very tired this evening and have a dull headache on my left side.
Speaking of detox symptoms, I think in the eight days leading up to this juice fast I pretty much experienced all known detox symptoms including, but not limited to, headaches, back pain, muscle fatigue, frequent waking, impatience (with people), and thirst. On the upside, I have clearer vision, smoother skin and I'm sleeping better.
I had originally planned to drink six juices today, B, snack, L, snack, S, snack... but so far I've only had four juices and I doubt I'll drink two more today.
