It's Over, I GIVE UP

Friday, April 26, 2013



I learned SOOOOO much during my Juice Fast.
I GIVE UP, Its over.



It feels like my BRAIN REBOOTED.



I learned that I have the STRENGTH to DO A JUICE FAST!!!



It was like a gift, giving me CONFIDENCE that I CAN and WILL do a longer juice fast.



I learned It is possible to RESET MY TASTEBUDS.



I learned to CONTROL my CRAVINGS. Juice fasting taught me valuable lessons.



Yes, I can live without normal processed foods, foods that temp me greatly.



I learned to enjoy new flavors combinations.



I learned Juicing seems to Cleanse the TASTEBUDS so you appreciate simple foods like home made vegetable soup from scratch. I now appreciate the differences between oranges and tangerines.



It feels as if my taste buds are reprogramed so that I don't crave or even want to eat anything that doesn't come out of the produce section of the grocery store. It feels like the bondage chains of junk food are decreased, very minimal.



My mindset is stronger to eat small portions.



I learned I can and do loose weight easily on a juice fast. It was so full of nutrition my body enjoys that I will continue to juice daily. I think that when I start again, next week that the juice fast will be much easier for me to stick to with all the personal discoveries I made. I have a daily juicing routine, which really makes a big difference in me having success. The day flows really well and I feel satisfied.



My stomach enjoyed feeling full, but not bloated. My digestion improved along with my energy and strength. The skin on the back of my hands looks less aged and my fingers are less swollen. It feels like I have decreased MS symptoms and that over time I will continue to improve with a longer juice fast. My energy lasted all day, which is a big improvement. I discovered a feeling of well-being. It felt magical how quickly the improvements happened. Of course 1-2 cups of wheat grass in my juice helped out too. Never in my life have I consumed so much fresh produce.



Once we get back from our trip I will restart on a proper juice fast for a longer period of time. Oh, my HUSBAND is HOOKED !!! He love juicing too.



My MIND has been OPENED to NEW POSSIBILITIES.



I now believe I can get to my goal weight when I do a longer fast, if not two.

I feel successful with my first attempt at juice fasting.



I am getting EXCITED !!!



Join me Next FRIDAY !



Or CHEER me ON.

    I know that Sparks doesn't approve of Juice Fast AT ALL, since they have posted a nunber of articles against them, but they sure worked for JOE CROSS. I think he know calls them JUICE FEASTS. emoticon

    I'm glad the juicing thing went so well for you!! I don't think juicing is for me personally, but it sounds like it worked really well for you and I'm happy you're feeling so good now! :)

    I tried sea weed for a couple of days when I was younger and I had a dream that God was laughing at me because I was eating grass LOL. you are much stronger than I am...I did not like the taste. It was spirulena I think...anyway something like that.

    I liked the light on in the fridge poster! But just for grins, odd as it may seem, many skinny people can love sweets and eat them frequently...not everyone's metabolism works the same....

These are great motivators. Keep up the good work...are you a juicer sales person?

    I did a 40 day juice fast for spiritual reasons. Some days I actually only had water and wanted nothing more. It was so awesome. I would love to to it again, but must wait for The Lord to direct something like that. Great success to you.

    My knee is swollen, but healing. It feels like it's itching inside. Yesterday I did a mile, but afterwards it complained big time. Today it got rest most of the day.

    I call my wheat grass juice combo the HUSBAND PRESERVER. Hopefully it will keep us in good health. It has wheat grass (I worked my way up to drinking 1 cup per quart.) You start with a shot glass of it mixed into the juice. I add apples, grapes, cucumber, bell pepper, carrots, and if I have it pineapple and if I have kale or parsley I will add them. The pineapple makes it extra yummy. Over time I worked my way up to drinking 2 quarts a day. It kind of depends on what we have on hand. The pineapple we only have once in awhile as they ripen irregularly and my husband likes to eat them. But when he is out and I can add them into the juice it is super yummy. Today I added in some tangelos into the mix.

In order to drink that much wheat grass juice I have a very large vegetable bed planted. Even with that some days I don't get to drink as much some days. Most days I get in at least one cup, some days more. Hopefully when we get back I can plant more.

  I will be there next Friday to celebrate your commitment. Way to go. So what do you mix with your wheatgrass? I have some growing right now, but don't have a recipe as of yet.
