60 day juice fast: 1 down

Friday, October 26, 2012

Day one of sixty, the easiest of 60. I feel great. I know I won’t feel this great for long. I am glad tomorrow is Shabbat, I have a feeling I may be having withdrawal symptoms by tomorrow afternoon. I only know this because I didn’t prep for the fast like I should. I am suppose to ease my way into a fast, but easing my way into anything really isn’t my style. LOL So I will handle the symptoms the best I can.

Today I juiced 3 meals.
Breakfast: carrots, apples, beets, lemon, and ginger about 370 calories
Lunch: cucumber, apple, kale, lemon, ginger about 300 calories
Dinner: kale, apple, lemon, ginger

My stomach was growling early in the day. Water always helped and I was fine after. A rather uneventful day. I am sure things will get more interesting soon. :)
Shabbat Shalom!

    The juice looks delish. There may be a few tough days ahead, but once you get in the swing of things, there is no stopping you! Good luck!

    I am not putting my health at risk, I am taking in all the nutrients my body needs. I will not get colon cancer. In fact my "bowel movements" are just fine. I don't have any issues in that way. I have supplements and options if things aren't moving along as I like. My calories are mostly above 1000. I have extra juices for snacks. I was giving recipes for 3 meals. I was tracking my meals in order to insure they are above 350 calories. There is plenty of research on this subject for you to look in to. Thanks for your concern.

    What is the purpose of this "juice fast", why is it for 2 months, and why are you putting your health in danger with a drinking plan that is under 1200 calories? you aren't eating solid food and I doubt you are taking in enough fiber for proper bowel movements, setting you up for colon cancers.

    I guess you decided to start your fast. Haha! I ended up having to add in some lettuce and avocado the other day because I started to feel really faint, I also did not do a pre-fast diet. Lol. On Sunday I plan to get back into a full fast though, so then we can be fasting buddies if you would like. :D B'hatzlacha!!
