Juice Fast: Day 10

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Ugh, I am wanting this fast to be done, like NOW! I know I could stop anytime but I really want to hold out for the 14 days, so I know that I can do it. But, I don't know that I am doing it for all the right reasons. I am still in a battle with my mind right now.

I know I am not going back to junk and unhealthy items, but I am really needing the taste of food. My juice fast is turning more and more into a liquid fast, as opposed to juice, as I am getting fed up with the taste and process of making juice every day, three times a day. I am primarily drinking water only.

I am hoping things go a bit better for the remainder of the week. I am getting REALLY tired and irritable, which is probably in part from my TOM (what a bad time to come) and from not getting enough nutrients.

I just don't know what to say. It's an emotional battle with my heart and mind right now.

    Good for you - already done with day 10. Only 4 more to go.
    I have to tell you - the hardest time of juice fast was by far during my TOM! It was awful, I wanted to quit. Quit the juice fast, quit the weight loss, just quit!! But I got through it, and so will YOU! emoticon
    Let's be honest, this is NOT a quick fix. This is a jump start at the most. This is resetting your taste buds, rebooting your system, allowing your system to take a break, giving your system a whole lot of nutrients from veggies, opportunity to realize the difference between hunger and desire, etc.
    Oh,and you were so right - it's the cucumber in the juices that I hate. So now I no longer use it, but have a bunch of it in the fridge. emoticon
    Hang in there, only 4 more day!! emoticon emoticon
    BTW - I make one juice per day and then drink it. I would not want to juice 3x per day, no way.

    Even though it seems like a hassle right now, and probably unappealing, try to drink more than just water. Your body will try to hoard what nutrients it has left if it thinks you're starving yourself. Most likely why you're very tired and irritable -- you're not getting the nutrients you need to function properly.

    Not having a juicer or anything, I don't know, but is there a way for you to do more than one meal's juice at a time? It seems the hassle of juicing itself is a problem for you, too, not simply the taste. If you do two meals' worth and refrigerate one to shake up for later, does that compromise the nutritional value in some way?

    Just a few more days, if you're determined to stick it out and do all 14, so juice it up and plug your nose if you have to! lol
