Juice Fast Days 3 & 4

I didn’t get to update yesterday as I was pretty busy.  I suspect that will happen from time to time.  I’m in the middle of day 4 of my juice fast.

On day 3, I drank my juices but also had a “Naked Juice” with extra protein in it.  At night, I had my family over for a wonderful dinner I prepared.  I made sure I had a large salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, and cucumbers.  I added balsamic vinegar on top.  From day 2 to day 3, I lost 1 pound.

On day 4 (today) I have to prepare a juice soon. I had another “Naked Juice” this morning.  I drank about half of it then later, I added about 7g of protein from soy powder to it to increase the protein some.  It was good and surprisingly not gritty.  It’s the EAS brand. That vs. Wal-Mart brand for example proves you get what you pay for.  Anyway, I plan to only drink the prepared juices sold at the stores when I travel or when I know I don’t have time to juice anything.  My primary juice will come from what I do myself.  I just don’t want to end up starving, not have time to juice and put a Little Debbie snack in my mouth!  LOL.

An update about how I feel.  I noticed yesterday when I went up the stairs I felt extra fatigued and out of breath.  I think part of that is I’m not getting in enough calories and protein.  I do feel a lot better when the jeans I was wearing were snug but now are just right.  It’s amazing what a difference 5 pounds makes.

Time to go make something as I’m getting to the point of hunger!  Happy Easter everyone!

He has risen!

Juice on!

  1. I’ve heard people on extended juice fasts say that day 3 and 4 are the hardest. I guess lots of toxins start flooding out of your body about now, and you sort of feel like you have the flu. Sounds like you’re doing a great job!

  2. Thanks! Glad someone’s looking. It help keeps me honest. I just know when I see these on YouTube or elsewhere especially when I’m looking for motivation, I end up getting disappointed when I don’t see anything past a day or two. I’m still hoping to continue until I’m satisfied. As long as I’m past the hunger I’ll be good. Today I haven’t had much hunger so that’s awesome. I really don’t feel bad at all except for the lack of energy after going up a flight of stairs. I know I have lots of toxins in my body so I guess it’s just releasing slower than most. Thanks for your comments. They’re encouraging!
