Juice fasting has been quite an adventure! Yesterday was tougher than the first day, but today is feeling pretty darn great.
My skin looks really good, a comment you've never heard from me. I also feel unbelievably sedate. Of course, I've lost weight as any fast will do, a total of four pounds. I'm sure that's temporary, but I can't quite figure the mechanism. I can't say it's water loss since I'm dinking so much fluid.
I am cheating a bit every night with some steamed produce. I can't get past the idea of juicing broccoli and cabbage, and I didn't want to be quite so extreme. Last night's dinner was steamed asparagus and broccoli. The rest of the day I juice fruits and veggies, and I had a nice little V-8 concoction before bed as well.
I have to carry all that liquid to work. It's heavy and I can smell the garlic in the V-8. Soon my coworkers will smell it too ;)
How long will I go? As long as I feel good and have positive results. I think eating in the evenings is key for me. I like that topped off full feeling, and I think I can cleanse and have my fiber too.
All things in moderation.
This week, I get to run/walk for fifteen minutes.
