This week I’ve started a 10 Day Juice Fast. It’s a healthy way to reboot my system, and push toxins out of the body. Ever since watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead earlier this year, I’ve been juicing a lot. I’m going to use my blog here as a way to record what I drank and how I felt each day during the fast. Hope you enjoy following my 10 Day Juice Fast with me!
Juice Fast Day One
I did the following and also drank a lot of water throughout the day.
- Carrot (5-6)
- Plain Teeccino (Herbal Coffee, cause I seriously missed my coffee! If it’s herbs, that means it’s okay, right?)
Lunch (Phil Staples Mean Green):
- 6 kale leaves
- 4 stalks of celery
- 2 apples
- 1 cucumber
- 1/2 lemon
- Piece of ginger
Fresh Squeezed Lemon and Water
- 1 beet (with stalk)
- 3 apples
- 3 carrots
And I’m just going to be honest with you all and admit that I cheated last night and had some homemade popcorn. It was organic and I just used coconut oil and salt, so does that make it okay? Sigh…yeah…I’m a popcorn addict along with being a coffee addict. Don’t be hatin’!
How I feel? Surprisingly not hungry. It’s my mind that keeps telling me I want food, yet my stomach feels full. Oh, and I had to take several *achem* trips to the bathroom. #TMI Otherwise, feeling good and ready to tackle day two.
Please keep in mind that this post is not meant to offer medical advice, and this is just my journey through a 10 day juice fast. Have you done a fast before? How’d it go?
