Juice Fasting Day 3 Recap: Feeling Nausea

Unfortunately, for me day 3 was filled with headaches and nausea. Of course I stuck to the plan and avoided coffee, and additionally I also avoided tea. So I only consumed fresh juices and good old H20.
However, about 2 hours after I consumed my “dinner juice” (wheat grass, strawberry and apple) I threw up. I am wondering if consuming 2 ounces of wheat grass was too much, or if the combination of strawberry and wheat grass was too acidic for my stomach. Regardless I do not think this was related to not having caffeine because if this were the case I would imagined that I would have gotten sick earlier in the day (and also typically I drink caffeine 5 days of the week, so there are 2 days a week where I do not take in caffeine and my body has never reacted this way before to not having it). Regardless, even though I found this really strange and it worried me a bit, at least afterwards my headache was a little more manageable.
20 ounces: of water upon rising
16 ounces: fresh squeezed orange juice
16 ounces: juice of 6 medium tomatoes and a handful of carrots
12 ounces: juice of wheat grass (2 ounces), strawberries (2 ounces) and 8 ounces cold pressed apple juice
32 ounces of H20 mixed with lemon
Total Liquid= 96 ounces just about 3 liters
