Cookie Monster Gone Raw
Recap for Days 5 and 6 of Juice Fasting
So days 5 and 6 went rather smoothly. I found myself drinking less and less juice. Both days I had around 2 glasses of apple juice and other than that I stuck just to water.
I had almost no signs of hunger or lightheadedness. Overall I felt pretty normal.
It is freeing to no longer be dependent on food and especially to be free from my desire for sugary things.
On day 5 & 6 my skin was still very soft. My mind my mind was filled with peace and calmness, and there was sort of a dream like feel to these days.
However, Friday (day 6) I had to run a bunch of errands and deal with deadlines. Under the time constraints I found it a bit hard to focus and even ended up running a red light. My blood pressure started to elevate, it felt like I did not have much fuel to go on. Sensing this I found a juice bar and ordered a cup of juice. Almost immediately I started to feel a bit more alert. However, the events prior had me feeling a bit concerned. Though my body was feeling fine, mentally I did not quite feel like I was running at the same rate as the rest of the world.
Given that this is my first fast, I am thinking that maybe I should go easy on myself and end it after day 7. Though part of me really wants to continue fasting I have some high demands early next week so I think it might be wise if I transition back to smoothies and raw food. However, I am contemplating continuing the fast later next week once my busy work has been completed. I wonder how close together one can do fasts. I guess in the meantime I will be doing some research to see if this is advisable.
