I tried starting yesterday but the juice of the night gave me a headache and made me want to eat to feel better. and it worked. but today is a brand new day, i've learned from my mistake, and will try to do the fast starting today. i'm going for 56 days. :)
Congrats!! that's a super accomplishment. I have been juicing for 60 days, tomorrow (started on March 1) not fasting however. trying to have 1-2 juices a day with 1 clean meal. I have added walking (averaging 1 mile a day). and, with all of the additional energy I've been able to get a lot done in my home. I'm down 24 pounds and really excited about the results. The hardest part of this has been trying to balance my needs for juicing while still cooking and taking care of the family! It's a balancing act that I'm not that good with. ~Jill
Fakin' it, til I make it!!!

Congrats of finishing the fast. I am a week into my 60 day and have lost 10 lbs! yay me. I am happy to read about others who are fasting and more importantly finishing. It gives me a boast that I can do this. Feeling great. I can't say I have had any "brutal" days so far, but then I didn't do coffee/pop prefast. The caffeine withdrawals can be rough.

congratulations!! im just about to get started on juicing. i may have to wait until fall to do an actual cleanse, too scared to do it during my busiest time at work. I hear that the detox can be brutal. did you experience this? if so, on which day, and how long did it last?? thanks!
Hi all I just completed today my 60 days juice fast and feel great. I only lost about 30 pounds - I wish it was more, but I did not do any exercise, purely out of laziness since I had tons of energy. I lost tons of inches though all my clothes are super loose or I can no longer wear them.
My friends are calling me the "incredible shrinking woman" - lol.
Someone else who started when I did and weigh the same lost 49 pounds but she walked every day.
Still very happy that I stuck it out for 60 days!!
