Today is my first day on juice/water fast. For the past two days I was eating less and less (no nuts or anything dehydrated) and not eating after 5 and felt soo amazing. I think my body was telling me that it's time for a little break, and I have never been so mentally prepared. Now it's more about giving my digestive system a break then other benefits such as weight loss. Well, I wouldn't be mad if I lost 5-7 pounds and kept it OFF this time :D Now I know breaking the fast is so much more important than the actual fast. I know this now and I am prepared for it. I would also like to speed up my skin clearing (it's almost clear, no more cysts!).
Today and tomorrow I will have vegetable juice twice a day, then one day of water only, and so on for at least 14 days. In addition to that I'll do 25 min. of yoga each morning, oil pulling, dry skin brushing, epsom salt baths,detox tea for liver,probiotics,walking 1 hr daily,enemas and just relaxing. The longest fast I've done was 3 days (ha!) and felt amazing. The only regret I had was breaking the fast with pumpkin seeds..I couldn't help myself :) Anyway hopefully I'll make it to day 14 with no problems (resisting temtations).:D

Hello, Congratualtions on your decision to juice fast, i can tell you that once the first 3 days are over its magical from there.
i have been on a fast since the 9th , so i think it makes it 18days now for me, i am venturing into a 40day fast.
I did the first 17 days with juices , and lastnight i started a water one, so im now going water for as many days and as long as i can.
the result just to inspire you.
I have lost so far
10kilos, have 10 more to go
My skin feels like babies skin
My face is so very clear havent never seen it that clear
i have loads more energy( i was not a raw foodist before the fast)
i am feeling just wonderful all round, just fantastic
Oh forgot to mention I have given up 60 ciggs a day
and many cups of coffee.
So Good luck on your fast, if you need a buddy i would love to be one.

I was so surprised yesterday wen so smoothly! I had no cravings, no hunger pangs..NOTHING! I had a romain,kale,lemon,apple,celery,cucumber juice in the morning and it was NASTY:eek: so for my second juice i added another apple and subtracted the lemon and..it was delicious! haha I think it was the lemon peel that I left on the lemon!
I drank tonz of water as well and then stopped drinking at 5 for a 15 hr dry fast. I heard that's beneficial as well (if not more). My skin is looking better and better, the problem area on my lower cheek is slowly disappearing. Yesterday it was 30% decrease and this morning it went down another 50%! wow! The only problem was I felt a little weak..hopefully I'll still be able to do my yoga (I tried pilates this morning and couldnt do it.. haha)
goingrawchelle: Thank you! I was BORN ready ;)
Oai: I would love to be your buddy! the more support the better :) You're so lucky to be on your 4th day, supposedly the worst is over for you haha please update me on you progress!
Emma: WOW 18 days!! You rawk girl! You results so far are simply astounding..keep up the awesome work and I hope (i know you will) hit the 40 day mark! Im only hoping to hit 14 days, but who knows? Maybe I'll keep going if I get enough support :D please check in with me, i would love to be your buddy as well!

Whitedaisy your doing just fantastic, and glad your skin is looking great already, it really doenst take long on fasting for the the skin to glow. So happy for you, you keep that up.
I have been just on water for the past 2 days and feeling the shift in detox, and deeper healing, actually its not as hard as i thought it would be so far so good, i havent put a limit on how long i will fast on water for so i am just taking it as it comes, when ever i cant anymore i will switch back to the juices.
Was so excited yesterday, put on a jacket that used to be 3 inches small at the buttons and i was able to do it up, so i know i have lost a lot of inches along with weight and feeling wonderful for it.
Keep up your great work girls.

Wow day 3 haha
Today was the most exhausting day ever. I felt sooo weak all day and I'm surprised because most people are full of energy on fasts..plus I had to work for 10 hours which didn't help. I still have no hunger nor cravings but the weakness is unbearable. I almost started bawling at work..for no reason!:D niice, detox kicking in already? me thinks..
I got a big pimple on my cheek! I'm so sad about that..hopefully it will go away fast. I also notice my pores got larger!! what?? When I fasted for the first time my pores got tiny within couple of days and now it's the opposite. Don't know what the deal is but I'll keep on going. I know I'll make it :D If i survived day 3 nothing is scary anymore.
Emma-omg i get so excited when I can fit into clothes that before were too small! I weighted myself out of curiosity this morning and I'm at 117 (Im 5'5 with a really small frame) I still have fat deposits which make me feel uncomfortable so maybe this fast will solve that. Im usually around 120 so I guess I lost 3 # in 3 days. I hope to get to 110! that would be awesome since before raw my highest weight was 145 and I looked sooo chunky haha anyway, keep on going, be my inspiration!
P.S. I forgot to mention that today was a water day!

Daisy, you are doing just great, dont worry about the tears, and the weakness that will always happen the first few days of the fast you will pick that up in the coming few days.
I am glad to see your determent and that is awesome, you will get to the other side i have no doubt.
Are you doing enema's?? they are quite important to do during a fast, they can relieve a lot of sickness and clean the colon out, i hope you are doing them, if not i hope you will consider doing them real soon.
I do them daily, have missed a few days here and there, but i try and make it daily.
I am now on day 21 of my fast, and 3 rd on water only, now when you talk about weak, i know what you mean there yesterday and today i needed strechers to get around or a wheel chair, felt so weak and sick, today i felt i was going to be sick, but i know that is only the detox, with water fast the detox is more sever than with juice, i still dont know how long i will continue with the water fast, i will wait and listen to the Lord and my body, i do have to work Monday so if i have picked up by tomorrow night i might have to have a juice monday morning to slow down the detox.
other than that all is great, have lost approx 10 kilos or slightly more so i am quite happy about that.
I just hope i feel better tomorrow.
Anyway keep up the good work, your doing just awesome.

I'm so excited that i made it to day 4! My skin got better (pores got a bit smaller) I feel really empty(in a gooood way) and heres a weird part- I suddenly got so much energy right after 5 ! All this morning I was exhausted, came home from work, had my juice, and 4 hours later I had enough energy to take a walk! That made me happy :) I don't feel so emotional anymore and I don't even THINK about food..I don't WANT it. Halleluja! haha Anyway I'm off to skin brush and take an epsom salt hot bath. Tomorrow will be day 5 and I'm becoming more and more confident that I can do it!
Dear Emma- Yes I've been doing daily enemas but I forgot to do it yesterday! I don't know how but..maybe becuase I feel so empty inside that I don't think I need it. (But I know I do). I wish I was on day 20..That would make me feel sooo proud of myself..I bet you are! I believe that I was so eak yesterday because it was my water day. Today I had some juice and maybe that boosted my energy levels..? Anyway, let's keep on going!! :)

Almost a weeeek!! :) Im so happy that I made it this far. I didn't write anything yesterday because nothing new is really happening to me. I'll only write soemthing if something major occurs. Today is my water day so Im going to be very weak (although I'm feeling really energized this morning). My acne is 95% GONE! I bet if I give it one more week It will be 100% gone! yay! ok I'm making this post a little shorter and hope for a good day today!

Sandy your doing just awesome, How long are you planning to go on with this fast?? i am so Glad your face is clearing, you have not mentioned how much weight you have lost through this???
I am so glad your really rocking it with this fast.
I have decided to cut my fast shorter than what i wanted, i will be having guests from overseas coming before mid april, so i will be starting to wean my self back to solids as of day 31 which is next week as i am on day 25.
but this fast has been so very worth it, i will definelty do it again.
Cant wait to hear all the other benifets you have had from your fast Sandy, you are doing so well.
Keep it up:D :D :D

Unbelievable.. I made it this far! I almost broke my fast because I have been feeling soooo weak and lifeless and was getting sick of it. I wouldn't mind feeling weak if I was on vacation but I had work and school so it was really tough. Still is. I didn't break it because I am closer to day 14 than further. I weight in at 111 pounds this morning (1 pound away from my goal weight!) and I love how my body is now :) I just gotta tone up (after the fast because even light yoga feels like torture!)
Thank you Emma for your encouragement! I have never done anything like this before and if you told me that one day I will..I would just laugh in your face :) you are doing amazing as well! even if your cutting your fast short. 30 days is a great length and the benefits you receive are great! I would probably keep on going for at least 21 days but the weakness is unbearable. I'll do it again on my vacation from work and school(a water fast) so no worries. Until the next time!
p.s. I decided to stop with water only days because it drains me too much and I can't even walk haha

I am getting closer and closer to THE END :D I decided that tomorrow I will have more juices than usually and on Monday I'll start eating solids. Nothing huge, I decided to eat a cucumber for breakfast, tomato for lunch and a green smoothie for dinner. The reason why I chose to break it earlier than planned is becuase there is no way I will have time to juice on Monday OR Tuesday..sad..I feel really good and I would be able to keep going but hey, thats life :) Im so proud of myself that MEEE (the binger) have not eaten for more than 3 days! I will weight myself tomorrow (I don't really care much becuase it feels so right to be the size I am right now) and I'm just PRAYING to not go back to my old ways. I wont. I WONT! thats better haha

Sandy, i am so happy for you , that you have made it this far. Sounds like your on the right track.
Keep up your great work.
Look forward to hearing how you end the fast and how it is for you.
Guys i read you every day and you give me power day by day. I'm on 14 days of my fast and i have never felt so good in my life. This is not my first fast, but definitly my easier one. I wanted to do 21 days of fast, but as i'm planing to do colonic i booked my terapy for 20.4. on sunday, so i will do at least 28 day of my fast. I know i will make it, becouse i feel so good:p
I lost 6 kilos, and my gol is to loose 4 more kilos. So i wish you all to have great time while you are fasting, and a bunch of energy.
I've read all your information that daily enemas are recommended during the fast. Do you use just plain water & how much?

I broke my fast..yesterday!! hahah i was so eager to eat my plums :)
I eat so much cleaner now and I feel amazing! full of energy! My skin doesnt look THAT good but its better than it was before. I'm holding at 112 (started running,yoga and pilates) to keep the weight off. Im planning on water fasting every friday to keep on track.
Emma, thank you so much for your support and kind words. I hope your doing alright. Let me know!
Inny-Its nice to know that I helped through your journey, too bad you didn't say hi before while I was still on the fast :) your doing an amazing job, KEEP IT UP!
Mare- I bought a regular enema and poured the chemical water from inside and filled it up with spring water. I had to do it several times, used up regular bottle of water.
I hope everyone keeps on going strong! I know Ill be doing another fast in a month so I'll be back ;)
