View Full Version : 7 day Juice feast about to start. Committed buddy needed
05-07-2010, 06:26 PM
Hi from the UK.
Managed my first 3 and a half day juice feast this week. I only jacked it in as I had a bad hair day at work and wobbled as no one to turn to for support. I also am quite new to juicing so felt it was a lot of prep. I have 5 juices per day and got sick of the washing up. I now have a better idea of whats entailed and will take pre-pared fresh juice to work.....
I would really love a committed 7 day buddy. Someone who will stick to their chosen regime. Check in everyday. Be there to push me on if I wobble and I will do vice versa. I am happy to start tomorrow or sunday
Anyone in. Please...........you must be 100% committed.
Love n'stuff....Liz UK xxxx:)

I'm not worth a quarter when it comes to any of the above but good luck finding a feasting partner there are many fabulously committed folks here at RFT:cool:

Hi.....Happyapple. Are you still in. can you fully commit. Day 1 = sunday is good for me with daily checking? no cheating? suuport each other if wavering?
05-08-2010, 04:24 PM
Yep, I'm in for sure - it's super timely & a bit of external accountability was just what I needed at this moment. FYI, I drink herbal teas and will also add some supplements such as chlorella & msm. See you in the green, liquid land of tomorrow! :)
05-08-2010, 05:37 PM
Great..........so glad you are joining me. Yes I will drink herb teas and add spirillina.
Ok....its almost midnight in uk. Gonna have me a bite then start after midnight.
Will check in tomorrow.
Hugs n stuff. Ps.....when I waver ...if I do. I want you to be dead hard and bully me!!!!!!!!!. I want to see this thru, fully
BTW...what time is it now where you are?

I'm in Sweden, that's timezone GMT+2. Just counted to 12 bananas that are heading for the freezer - the rest of my foodstuff is juiceable. Am really looking forward to this, and some parts of me are a little scared. Certainly we'll see this juicefeast through, all the way to translucency, and I'm ready to nudge & co-coach along the way as needed. Now off to garden & forage, talk to you later!
05-09-2010, 06:02 AM
Well. Here I am. Once juice on board. Went out to buy some stuff to get me going. Re time zone...good , we are not too far apart.
Yes, I need to do the week. I feel rough this am after a few days of naff eating so need to get that slimmer and cleansed feel again. I am doing the Jason Vale juice plan to keep me on track.
Am resting today. Hope you are doing great and happy foraging. Check in later. I need to tell myself its ok to feel a bit hungry.

A day of juicing watermelon + carrot/ginger/greens. Feeling quite a lot of resistance, but trying to shift to witnessing modality. Picked a large bag of goutweed - so grateful for the season of wild edibles. How is your day going, Liz? Hope you've had lots of tasty drinks. My no-wavering tip of the day is to close the eyes and imagine how wondrous we'll feel by Wednesday...!
05-09-2010, 03:59 PM
Hi....sounds like you are working thru the resistance and drinking some really healthy stuff.............yes, this first day is hard isnt it. I have had 3 big juices/cucumber/ginger/lime/avaocado/pineapple/carrot/beet and apple combos.
My struggle is giving up drinks......either coffee in tea or in decaf coffee. I just hate hot water or herbal teas. Do you think if I juice for weight loss but have skimmed milk...with decaf tea or coffee it will slow my weight loss down. Whats your hardest part.
Yes roll on day 3

Just a quick note before work - I'm dropping coffee too (for the zillionth time...) & am experiencing headaches, but remind myself that I only need to drink coffee when my foodchoices make me tired from digestion...personally I'd rather go cold turkey & come out after a day or two on the other side of coffee abstinence, but follow your heart. For me, coffee causes energetic imbalances (which also tend to lead to non-optimal choices in diet & other habits) and milk - to borrow a phrase from Gabriel Cousens - "clogs the nadis". If I need a boost, I'll have some guaranapowder, especially when transitioning from coffee - it gives me a much softer "high" than coffee. Have you tried stevia in your herbal teas? Some fresh mint...chamomile in the evening...or thyme...or all of it, perhaps on a base of pau d'arco. Or a really strong ginger tea, for digestive support. One fun thing about cleansing is that we'll become so much more aware of subtle signatures, that the coffee-vibe will seem a bit coarse eventually.
Oops, being verbiose this morning. Have to run now - wishing you a brilliant day & let's both remember that in 24 hours, coffee will not have the same pull anymore!

Just a quick hello. I havent managed to not drink coffee today but have gone onto decaf so thats a start. You are full or wonderful drinks and bits I have never heard so I must google them. I am having a fat week and felt a bit groggy today so that's to be expected. I have a naff morning tomorrow when I deliver training and I hate it but after that, I will be able to focus more
How are you anyway. No doubt you are in bed now. I hope tuesday am sees you motivated with a clearer head.
Keep going, you sound like you are getting thru'.
05-11-2010, 11:23 AM
Congratulations to the decaf, Liz, that's so great! Hope the training went well and that you are feeling lighter. For me, the coffee machine was very much on my mind yesterday, but today has been fairly craving-free. Really gratefull for your prompt to do this! Need more sleep, though. (You got me googling too - didn't know the word "naff" but now I do! :))
And on we go...to day FOUR!
05-11-2010, 04:15 PM
I hope you are surviving day 3. I am muddled through and less desperate today. Naff = rubbish in the UK. Its a slang word.
My training went well thanks. Are you feeling a bit lighter, cleaner. I am glad you are working through your coffee cravings.
Let me know you are ok and managing.
05-12-2010, 05:39 PM
Hi there................had a wobble today and succumbed and had some fruit :(.....guess its not so bad. I had a cup of tea too.....yikes. Its been stressful at work. I am still planning keeping going. Hope you are ok
05-13-2010, 03:51 AM
So sorry for not checking in yesterday - participated in a circle that ran so late that I slept at the venue, hence no internet.
Fruit sounds like a very innocent slip - especially since you're still committed! I can so relate to food as a strategy to cope with stress...it's a journey, isn't it, to find alternate ways to handle stressors...
I'm becoming increasingly aware of dense areas in my body, which comes with a motivation to keep cleansing. Now off to raw potluck, bringing wildly green salad and, for myself, juices to sip in the sun.
Lots of nutritional cheers to you!
05-13-2010, 11:32 AM
Yes................still doing the journey........hope the greens are being good to you. I am off for an early kip xx:)
05-14-2010, 01:48 PM
Hi Liz, hope the weekend brings you less stress & plenty of peace! Yes, thanks, the greens are being good to me & I'm feeling less dense today, also skin has cleared a bit. Waves of "stuff" coming up emotionally & energetically. I'm thinking I might keep juicing for a few more days, and/or shift to a green smoothie cleanse - what about you, any thought about how you want to break the feast? Sweet dreams & see you on day 7! :)
05-14-2010, 08:02 PM
Hello..............................are you ok. Well I am still going on. Feel less groggy now. Glad w'end is here. I am going to do another week of fruit/veg smoothies. What about you?
05-15-2010, 12:50 AM
Another week of fruit/veg-smoothies sounds perfect! Personally, I'll also take up to 1T of coconut oil daily, if needed.
05-21-2010, 11:56 PM
So how was the feast? Results? I am thinking about going on a short one, maybe 7 days but not until probably next month. I have access to possibly a large amount of free greens from a friend who has a large farm and sells at a large big city farmers market. On Sunday whatever is left gets trashed and from what I understand it is a good bit of produce. So I could possibly be getting tons of free greens every week over the summer. Anyways...just curious how things went and if you have any tips for a first timer I am all ears.
