View Full Version : December Juice Fast
12-13-2004, 01:22 AM
How are you doing today? Have you bought your veggies and fruits?
I must admit that I cheated and started yesterday (one day earlier than planned).... long story... lets just say that I got fed up with myself and gave myself a well deserved kick in the butt.
Anyway.... today I went out for a 20 min walk when I woke up. It was really chilly but it was sooo nice to walk in the city ... almost noone else was out and all the christmaslights were lit. When I came back in I made myself some lovely orange juice.
I also plan to drink some juice made out of galia melon *yummy* and some veggie juice (carrot, cucumber, celery and...?). I will also do some aerobics (videoworkout) and 5 tibetan rites as well as dry brushing. Other than that I will take it fairly easy and rest... maybe do some work by the computer but nothing that needs a lot of concentration.
Good luck to all of you!

I'm tempted this morning but I just put my juicer together again as I always air dry it every night........I will have my good ole cerly beet apple juice. That's awesome that you started yesterday!

Hi Tanja & Linda!
It's going great here. I had lemon water & orange juice earlier. Haven't had much of an appetite so I just had lunch. It was carrot, beet, pear, apple -- (below)! It looks like tomato juice! Tastes awesome!
WTG Tanja on getting started early!!

Yummmmy......i had celery, lemon and apple juice instead. Since were doing the juice fast together, should we post here daily too as well as our own juornals? This way we can support each other and keep tabs??? :eek:
BTW, where are you to from?

Good luck to everyone. :) What is galia melon? Never heard of it before.
nice work, keep it juicy girls! :D
Curtis, I took the libberty to answer your question by posting a pic, I hope Tanja doesn't mind...

thought it was a honeydew.
it is called galia melon in Belgium and apparantly also in Scotland

Here's pictures of both Honeydew and Galia Melon. They are a little bit different.
Galia Melon: This sweet, juicy melon is a honeydew-cantaloupe cross.
At least that's what they look like in Scotland :p
At the moment I'm struggling with the juice fast. Up until now it has been really easy but just as I was going to bed it hit me. I'm SO freaking hungry! And I can't possibly drink any more without being sick. Well, well... tomorrow is another day :o
Ah, i see, so I was wrong about thinking it's one and the same melon... thanks for straightening this out Tanja!
We get the galia melon here in Belgium, but never seen the honeydew though...
Tomorrow's a new day Tanja, the hunger will fade away a bit, are you sure you drank enough? (don't want you to get sick and throw up though...)
12-13-2004, 04:21 PM
I didn't knew the difference between them either before I looked them up on the internet (well obviously I knew that they weren't the same ... but :p)
Joke, I think I might have been drinking too little during the day today... but I just wasn't hungry. NOW I'm hungry and I've tried to make it go away with more juice and water but just can't take anymore. Tomorrow I will try and drink more during the day too. And you're right... tomorrow is a new day.....

Good Morning fellow juicers!
How are you doing today? I've had a pretty rough night and I've been SO close to breaking the fast but so far so good *knock on wood*. I've heard from other juicers that day 2-3 are the toughest so I hope I've passed that mark now...
It's 6.15 in the morning here and I've just come in from my morningwalk. I'm about to go and make my first juice for today. I think it will be an orange/carrot-combo.
Talking about oranges... I can't believe how expensive they are!!! I have to pay $3.60 for 6 oranges!!!! :eek: Luckily enough carrots are a lot cheaper so I'll rely more on them instead!
In one of the books (Super Juice, michael von straten & mitchell beazley)I've borrowed from the library I found this recipe, sounds delicious doesn't it?
1 pink grapefruit (it says: if taking prescribed medicines, consult your doctor before drinking large ammounts of grapefruit juice)
Super-rich in vitamin C, rich in vitamin A. Contains a useful amount of potassium and calcium. The acidity of all these citrus-fruit juices helps remove some of the unwanted bacteria from the digestive tract and encourages the growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria. Besides tasting terrific, the Rainbow Cocktail is a real digestive aid, which should be drunk for two or three days after a course of antibiotics to get your system back in good running order as soon as possible.

A pic of my favourite juice at the moment, it's made of 2 carrots and 1 orange. So sweet and fresh at the same time!
It's lunchtime now and I'm still doing fairly ok... struggling with hunger and my stomach is making some really weird noises. I am trying to drink, drink, drink, drink to ease the hunger.... no success yet though....
Wow Tanja it's beautiful!! :)
Weird noses, yah, I had the same, like bubbles of air shifting through your intestins, lol! Don't worry, that's just all the junk (or at least a big part of it) that's coming loose because of all the juices, keep going now, you don't want to give in because then all your effort would have been for nothing (is this even an english expression? We say this in Belgium, it's weird to see it translated in english...) anyways, please keep juicing, you are so doing your body a favor!!
I'll be rooting for ya!!

Thanks Joke! I've just had an pear/ananas-juice and it was SO DELICIOUS!! YUMMY! It feels better now after that... maybe some nutrient I needed? You're right I just can't give up now! I mean... seriously.... it's only 4 days left (then I've been fasting for a week) and that's not much is it? Tomorrow will be halfway through.... I WILL DO IT! :D

I've been away from the board for a few days, but just started an orange juice fast today that I plan to continue till Christmas Eve. May I join you folks?
12-14-2004, 11:16 AM
Of course you may join in--the more the merrier! Day one was the hard for me...I feel content now. :rolleyes:
12-14-2004, 12:06 PM
how often should we be juicing? i feel i can easily juice in the morning and then not be hungry intil 2 or 3--but despite hunger or not, is there a suggestive number of times to juice for health benefit reasoning? :confused:
12-15-2004, 01:28 PM
Mmmm, the rainbow cocktail sounds wonderful--I love lime! It's really cool that they mentioned the meds thing about the grapefruit juice. A lot of meds can be totally ineffective or dangerous if you drink a lot of grapefruit juice and people don't realize it.
And Tanja, your orange carrot combo is beautiful, thanks for sharing it!

Well a rough ride for me......since the ER visit, I pretty much juiced and some bad foods like soup broth, cheesecake and rice. I haven't over done it like I was afraid of so today, is the continuation of my JUICE FAST for December 2004--I want to at least get 10 days in.
The New Year will be about getting things done and reintroducing myself. New everything !!!! Weight, hair, skin, clothes and goals and even how I think about things.
It really does get easier,

Hi everyone, :D
I was reading the board and I wish I was on this board. Anyhow, if you are all going to continue juicing in January 2005. I will be starting tomorrow, December 24, 2004
