Great job, Curtis! Don't you feel great?
Great job, Curtis! Don't you feel great?
Hi everyone got busy this weekend!
Did seven days though, not as long as i thought but i have a couple of meeting this week and they are all around a raw lunch.
Maybe we'll do another one soon.
You all did so great!!! It was so nice doing this together! Thank you all for joining me on this!
Todd, i hope you dont feel abandoned ;)
But it seems you can motivate yourself just fine! Well all be rootin' for you still though.
Next time I will do it with you. I don't know if I could do my first juice fast all by myself.....
I am at the end of day 2 now. Going pretty good. Once day 3 is done I will be on auto-pilot. Curtis you have done a wonderful job! Melanie, congrats on the weight loss! Thats great! Hey, 5 days is a great start. I love this, peoples lives being changed for the better.
Yes I do feel better. I learned a big lesson doing this, that most of us have been controlled by food all our lives.:)
I giving some serious thought to water fasting one day a week for better health.

Well, today is Day 5. I am doing great and feeling great. I have decided to end the juice fast on Saturday instead of Sunday because I don't want it to interfere with my regular Monday water fast. I feel like if I end the juice fast on Sunday, just to start a water fast after, I may be setting myself up for trouble in terms of breaking the fast. So I will break this one slowly on Saturday with fruit and some crushed nuts. Then Sunday with fruit and a salad. But this has been a blast for sure. I have found juicing a fresh pineapple with some pears is DELICIOUS! I have also used fresh organic valencias quite abit as well. Its so freeing to have your appetite controlled by the higher powers of the mind instead of the lower powers of the stomach!
great job todd!
We'll have to all do another one soon! it is really freeing, i agree!
Go Todd - Go Todd- Go Todd! :D
You're always such an inspiration when it comes to fasting. Love your dillengence!
Good luck Todd! And congrats to all of you who keep it going! What an accomplishment!
Yes, great work Todd! You are an inspiration! I love this group and all we can learn from one another!
Thank you all for being so very supportive. This is day 6 (the last day). This has not been that difficult. I have come to understand why the water fast is the most effective....its much more intense. The juice fast is great though, not as intense but still good enough to clear the mind and body and get the appetite under control. One of these days though I am going to do a 10 day water fast. Maybe in connection with a juice fast (one after the other). Experimentation, I am learning, is a big part of the raw journey! Experimentation on oneself:).
Great job on the fast. I hope to have your determination someday. I do have a question: Where did you buy your 3 cases of oranges from. I am having trouble fining them by the case. Did you order them? Thanks in advance!
I was going to do a 14 day water fast once after reading some fasting book and after day 2.5 I woke up in the middle of the night extremely nauseous and weak. After about 30min of pondering what to do and feeling horrible and thinking this is just nasty detox go to sleep, it was horrible. So I got myself downstairs barely and was juicing oranges on the floor i was so weak! Anyway, had a big glass of OJ and was fine within minutes. I then continued for another 5 days on just OJ and was great and never weak again. I just didn't know how much to push myself and i know they say do it under doctor's care but i just did it. Any thoughts on what i experienced? And it IS much more intense than the juice fasting lol! :eek:
I went to my local health food store because I saw that they sell organic produce and asked them. They order organic produce anyways so I figured this would just produce added volume discounts for them and cheaper prices for me. They are very efficient because I only need to call them one day in advance. If my local health food store wasn't able to help me I would probably go to the local supermarket for the same reason. Just talk to the manager and explain that you are a raw vegan who consumes alot of fruit. Thats what I did anyways. :D . I hope this helps you.
