View Full Version : My first juice fast....
03-14-2005, 02:05 PM
Just a note to say I started my first juice fast today, if anyone cares to offer advice or join in. I am not going to be doing smoothies, only fruit and veg juices, but if anyone wants to join in feel free to do whatever! My goals are to deepen my faith, reawaken my artistic instincts, and cleanse my body. And admittedly, I won't shed a tear if I lose a pound or two ;) I am going to do at least three days... I would love to do more, but, again it is my first time, I have to see how it goes. I'm planning on some pretty yucky detox :)

i did my first juice fast 2 weeks ago and am starting another one tomorrow. i found that the most unexpected thing was the headache i had the entire first day. it was better the second day (significantly!) and gone completely the third. by the time the third day was over, i think i could have gone 2 more days fairly easily, but i didn't because i was in a wedding and there was too much good/bad stuff to eat!
About the headache - i ate 1/2 an avacado that afternoon to make it go away, and it definitely helped a little. celery juice helped too!
congratulations on your new adventure!!! i felt great - so great that i'm doing another one tomorrow! the coated tongue started ALOT the first day! i was surprised at how quickly that happened. i didn't have anymore detox symptoms (headache and coated tongue). i think i would have to do the fast for 5 or more days to experience that.
i prayed alot and experienced some spiritual, as well as physical growth. Yay!!! You can do it, girl! :D

Hi Ashley :)
It only lasted aboout 36 hours :) I was picking something up at the grocery and i totally caved. And on top of that had an icky cheat last night. But, you know what they say... get back on the horse.
Interesting though-- I find after that short short juice fast, my appetite is smaller!! And simple things are tasting even better.. Imagine if i do it for longer! I think I was just not focusing enough... next time I will set more time aside for thinking, meditation, relaxation and stuff... it DID feel great though.
Thanks for checking in though :) I will be sure to let you know when I am ready to do it again.... maybe we can do a fast together sometime and check in with each other. Best of luck with yours, let me know how it's going :)
