Do you have to worry about getting enough calories/nutrients or do you just juice whatever you want and go with the flow?
Stupid question huh :rolleyes:

Well, there are different ways of doing it. You can choose. Some people do juice "feasting". In that case, they drink lots of juice, like a gallon a day,I think.
The idea there is to keep one's calorie consumption high so the metabolism stays hight. Others drink less juice and it is more of a fast. If you search here, there are several good accounts of what people have done in detail.
Of course, juice is a great supplement to our diets even with food.
Are you planning on fasting?

I'm doing a 92 day juice feast right now. I've kinda made my own regime following a blend of Jeremy Saffron's book "Dining from an empty bowl" and David and Katrina's site www.juicefeasting.com
This is my day:
20 oz of water as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning followed by 1 orange - juiced and 1T of MSM added to it. Then a chaser of 4 oz of water as I don't like the taste of the MSM.
When I'm ready... I have 40-50 oz of fruit juice.
In the afternoon I have 50 oz Jungle juice consisting of:
1/2 bunch of celery minimum
a bunch of kale (or other green)
To this mix I sometimes add carrots, fennel, parsley, garlic... whatever I have around and want to drink.
In the evening for dinner I have another fruit juice - 40 oz.
I try to consume 60+ oz of water a day as well.
200+ oz of fluid per day is my current intake goal.
My blog explains why I'm choosing what I am. Here's a link:

Aleesha, Thanks for that detailed description. I'm still waiting for my juicer to come in the mail, but it should be here in a day or two and then I will start my feast. I am starting with a week and then will extend if it feels right.
My mind can't except 92 days yet, but who knows what will happen when I get started.
