10 Day Juice Fast Day One: What I drank, how I feel…

green juice.jpgUPDATE: Since first beginning my juicing diet, I have gotten myself all the way from a size 16 to a size 4. I have perfected the recipes, the shopping list, and customized my juice cleanse down to just 5 Days!! Find out more on how you can get started juicing and do a 5-Day Juice Cleanse here.

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)

Cheating Snack:

  • 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?

  1. I have been wanting to do it since I saw Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. I used to have a Juiceman Juicer but it was such a pain to clean and so loud and sold it a few years back since I hardly ever used it. I wonder if they are still as much of a pain to clean/loud. I may be getting a juicer for Christmas since it’s on my wish list, if not I will probably buy one with whatever gift cards I get. Do you have any recommendations? I was looking at Breville Juice Fountain.

  2. Hi I was just wondering what type of juicer you have? And have you had it long or do you just use a blender?????

  3. Kev and I are interested in seeing Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. Maybe we’ll make it a family occasion when my dad and mom come to visit this week LOL They do juice so it should be a fun holiday.

    We just bought a Breville as our Christmas gift. Who knew Kev was interested in juicing? I’m a bit scared although I have been making smoothies with spinach for a long time so hopefully I can handle the juice.

    Looking forward to catching up on your experience.

  4. Hi Crystal, 1st off LOVE your blog! Did you do anything ahead of time to get ready for the juicing? Cut down on certain foods, cleanse etc…??
    Also did you eat any nuts during the juicing?? Or just the juicing as stated? I am going to start mine one Jan. 1st and have never done anytype of juicing b4 BUT I got an Omega VRT 350 that says it keep enymes in the juice good for upto 72 hours. THANK YOU for all your help and knowledge. Also how do you feel after you did this and during this?

  5. On the 1st morning you said you did Carrots…. How many did you do? and did you eat nuts in between meals as wells? Also is there a place on your site where all of your Juice Fast Recipes are ALL TOGETHER?

  6. I am going to try but first i have a couple questions..
    1. Did you repeat the three same juices every day?
    2. The 1/2 lemon..is that with skin and all or just the half of lemon juice.
    3.How much did you loose after the 10th day?

    Thanks for all the info.

    • Hey Cate! 1. No, there are different juices every day. Look at the bottom of the posts for the links to the next day’s juices. 2. I use the entire peel. 3. I did not weigh myself. Many people who did this with me report upwards of 10 pounds lost.

  7. I got a Breville Ikon Multi-Speed Juice Fountain. This brand was recommended by Joe in his documentary. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to reassemble. I started my fast today. I skipped my morning coffee and by 4:30pm I was ready to go to bed. I drank a cup of coffee and felt 100% better! I wasn’t crazy about the Mean Green juice, I liked the beet juice with oranges better. For dinner I had a recipe out of the book that came with the juicer that was tomatoes, red peppers, and carrots. I liked that one best. I have the next 2 days off of work. I sure hope I start feeling better by Tuesday. I am hoping to dramatically improve my cholesterol.

  8. Hey its me again can you send me you juicing diets for the 21 day recipe I saved them can’t find them . Thanks
