Juice fast NOVEMBER
I know there are already a few threads here about juice fasting, but I decided to start a new one, for everyone that wants to join this month...
Today is my first day, for lunch I had OJ of 4 oranges and some cuke juice (my mom couldn't use it in one of her recipes).
I have a question: do you only drink juice when feeling hungry of faint or do you drink a lot, just to make sure you get all the stuff you need? (how many glasses or liter per day?) Tx!
I will also write about the fast in my journal, check it out!
btw: I'm feeling a bit dizzy... maybe I should go and juice a bit more, right?!
Everyone else welcome!
Here's another question:
can you go by with just the sweet juices? Or would you advise to juice veggies as well? I went to the store to stock up on fruits and veggies, so I'll make both, but I suppose it's not 'bad' to drink sweet juice all day long, and the next day maybe also drink some veggie juice... right?
Tx for answering!
Anybody wants to join me? It's awfully quiet in my thread...
I am also starting a 2 week juice fast. I am stickly going to use O.J. though. I am following a plan from the garden diet. Only, I am also going to supplement with wheatgrass to speed up detox. So just o.j. and WG for me for the next 14 days! Good luck with your juicing!

Welcome to this thread! I'm so glad I'm not the only one doing a juice fast, it's definitely a bit easier if we can do this together and support each other, right?
I'm going to juice all fruits and veggies that can be juiced, I'm afraid I might get bored drinking only OJ, but I'm interested to see how you will do, so keep posting, I've got my two thumbs up for you! Maybe I'll do only OJ another time, we'll see.
I didn't say yet for how many days I plan to fast, because I don't know... I'll try to do this as long as I feel the need to do it, but when I can't anymore, I'll break my fast with solid fruits again...
I don't suppose bananas can be juiced, right?
I would recommend that if its your first juice fast, don't worry about how much you drink. In other words, drink as much as you want. I drank a couple of gallons (literally) a day for like the first 3 days. The first time I did a 14 day juice fast I did it with only OJ. I later did a 30 day one with fruit juices in the morning and evening and veggie juices in the afternoon. I just finished a 6 day fast with mostly fruit juices (I enjoy them the most). Banana is not really for a juice fast because its heavy in fiber. The object is to only have liquid. But I am sure it won't hurt anyways . The key thing is to make sure you are full so that hunger wont stop the fast. After that the biggest issue would be missing the taste and feel of foodin your mouth. But once there are no hunger issues, that is easier to deal with.
thank you so much for answering my questions! I was kinda hoping you would read this thread and give your opinion, it's highly appreciated!
I drank some veggie juice in the evening yesterday. I think I will just make what I am in the mood for, I juiced and juiced a lot this afternoon, and have about three liters of fruit-juice now, I can't believe how good it tastes! I already love love love my champion!!
I slept a lot last night, although I did wake up around 4:30 and was awake for about 2 hours. But after that I had a good night sleep.
I still feel great!
tx again for your post Todd!
I'll go for it.
I'll start Monday the 15th for a week. I need a kick start.
Todd, thanks for your post! I am actually still more than 20 pounds overweight, and I thought it would come off easier with juicefasting, because my weightloss was slowing down and it kind of plateaud so i was hoping the juicing might give the weightloss a boost, but so far it's kinda slow, compared to the others here... I don't know how much longer I'll keep juicefasting... maybe I should pull through and keep doing it for two weeks? I don't know if I'll be able to do that...
Konacoral: Glad you are joining us soon :)
Are you getting any type of exercise? That might help kick start it a little!

Good point Rawjojo,
I guess I assumed Jay was exercising regularly. Jay are you doing regular exercise? I was during my fast. At least a good hour of straight walking. I hear different things with regard to the juice fast as far as weight loss. I believe the closer you can get to 30 (or even 40) days the better. At least 14 days though. 7 days is just getting the body warmed up to the idea. But exercise daily is important to your success luv!
yeah, I already thought of that, I'm not doing much to be honest, hee hee
BUT, in fact, I'm gonna go for a walk now, yeah, great idea, I'm gonna go for a walk around my little village, and get some fresh air and move those legs, whooo!
talk to you later!!
Thanks RawJoJo, you kinda reminded me, lol!
alright alright, lol, I got the point, I'm gonna go for a walk, a LONG walk, an hour or so, I'll check back in an hour, tataa!
I am at day 6 of juice fast, I have lost about 5 pounds, but I haven't lost any weight in the last two days.
This evening I noticed a couple of spots in my face. Maybe I am starting detox! Anyway today it is been VERY hard, I have been so hungry, and having many may cravings for really bad stuff (pizza, pasta, bread, cakes), and I wonder if I am detoxing from this foods.
I juice mostly oranges, but yesterday I made an awesome drink of pears, oranges and pomegranate, yummm!
You are all so inspirational, and Todd, it is so helpful to read you!!
