I know that potion but how do youfeel now? Still bloated? I was tempted to try the salty water too, to maximize my elimination but it is soooo disgusting!!!
I think I wll make pear juice today, it is so thick and tasty
I know, it's so disgusting, like I said, some of it came right back out, because it was so yucky I couldn't keep it down!
I still feel weird, not so well actually. A bit tired, my eyes are itching, my tummy is still making noises and is still bloated, overall: not very well
I hope that will pass, but I'm afraid that when I start drinking juice, it will come right out again...
and I still have a salty taste in my mouth, I can't seem to get rid of it!
I'm gonna juice some pears and apples later today...
oh, and apparantly my order with Orkos hasen't even been shipped yet, so I think I'll receive it tomorrow instead of today, poo
my skin is still as bad...
well, let's turn the 11 days back into 10 days, hee hee
I had 2 pears for lunch, although not organic, that's why they didn't taste as good to me, but I had asked my brother about the unfrequent toiletvisits and he said, just like Helen mentioned, that I need to eat fibres (of fruits and veggies of course) to have some BM... and since I was feeling pretty down today, I thought I'd help my body to some fruit-fibres, so there you go, I made it untill 2pm this afternoon, then I went for the pears. But I'm not mad at myself or anything, I just felt it was time to change to solid foods again :)
But I'll keep reading here and cheering you guys on! You are the best!!
On to Day 4.
Yesterday I drank 1 1/2 liters of juice. I had a horrible headache, again!!! I ate a banana and a few raw crackers. I had been ALL RAW up until last night. My family made a spagehtti dinner with garlic bread. I didn't eat any of it. Well last night, very late, I was picking up the kitchen, turning all the lights off and right there on the counter was the last piece of garlic bread. I ate it. Thank goodness it was from a mini loaf, so it was small, but it still wasn't raw.
This morning - woke up for the first time in a loooong time with only mild aches - Yea!!!!!! and a mild headache. I was able to get up and walk around immediately. I think my body is starting to repair itself to the point I can feel it. I lost .2 pounds for a total of 3.2 pounds.
Although I'm still struggling with horrible headaches, I no longer have diarrhea, my chills are gone, weight is down, and my joint and muscle aches are a whole lot less. I'm making PROGRESS. On to Day 4!!!!!

I think 10 days is WONDERFUL. Good job. Thanks for your encouragement and support!!!!

Thank you Helen!!
I'm glad you are feeling better, I mean, less pain, aches and headaches is great, I'm really hoping they will get less and less as the days go by, actually, I wish they would all go away right now, but we have to be realistic here... Anyways, You are doing great!
Great job Jay! You did fantastic! Sorry to hear the salt water made you sick . Hopefully the fiber from the pears will cause you to eliminate. I didnt ask you before, are you dealing with stress? That also could hold things up (no pun intended) lol.
Helen, I am so happy to hear you are doing better! That's great! Sounds like your body is healing itself (which its made to do).
Thanks for the encouragement. I know my body is healing, but it's so nice to be reinforced by you and others on the board :) I'm was a little sleepy, so I went out on the deck and fell asleep in the sun. It felt so good!!!! Guess rest is also part of the healing too as I rarely ever nap. So far, my headache isn't getting any worse . . . a good sign!!!!
I'm taking my freshly squeeze OJ and heading back out on the deck. Sun has gone behind the clouds but I understand you still can get some Vit D through the clouds (have to store up for the winter)

Yeah, I did NOT like the salt flush
Stress, nope, none excisting right now, I'm unemployed, can do whatever I want, although I'm in charge of cleaning and stuff in and around the house. I'm planning to go to Australia next year to work and travel there for a year, so taking a job right now would be a bit silly, as it would only be for another month or two... (I know about temp jobs, but I spent the last three years studying for my diploma, and didn't have any vacation then, so I'm glad I don't have any pressure and stress right now in my life) I know I'm lucky to be at home, basically do what I want, but I don't plan to do it for much longer, a new adventure awaits me
I am losing weight very slowly, but I am feeling great!
Today I want to try a water fast to speed up the detox process.
I have only 3 days to go, I am looking forward to a banana breakfast saturday morning
Great job Fragola!!
Fragola, my hat is off to you, you are doing such a wonderfull job!!
I agree, banana breakfast sounds so goooooooooooood!!
Hang in there, only 3 more days left, yay!
As for the weightloss, I actually gained 1.5 pounds again, whyyyy? So if you add up, I only lost like 3.3 pounds in the end... pfff, not fair...
Let's just hope it will come off easy!
Thank you Jay! I am very worried about the "after-fast", worried that I will not be able to stop eating anything, and worried that I will gain back my weight, but what can I do? At least it is been a good detox, and you can think the same. You have now less toxins in your body, this mean that you will live longer, healthier, happier, young and beautiful!!
Today I went for a walk into Venice, and it seemed that EVERYBODY around me was eating....awwww sometimes it is sooo hard!! :)
Girl, you are doing great! Breaking the fast has been an issue for me as well. Everytime I do it, I am learning. Eating alot of fruit and fruit only will be good the first day or even two days. I too am learning this the hard way. How much weight have you lost since the fast began?
I think I am having a great detox day, I am feeling so chilly right now, no matter how many clothes I am wearing
What I am going to write now is quite gross, so people you are warned: I went to toilet and eliminated something that I can relate to that pictures about mucoid plaque, I was so excited, and more strong about the water fast!!
I have lost 11 pounds and surely some centimeters, at the end of the 2 weeks I will take measurements again.
I am planning to eat only fruit during the weekend, I am looking forward to it
This is day 5 for me. I slowly have been getting better. Then I though I had a set back.
I got up at 4am (grandson teething) and I felt fine. Then I eventually went back to bed and didn't get up until 7:30 and I was in a lot of pain. All over my body and a headache.
I have finally seen a pattern. Depending on how much I workout (in my martial arts) the night before, the more I hurt muscle & head wise. Last night I had a pretty good (not intense) workout with my weapons and kata. As the morning went on and I moved around, I'm feeling a lot better, except for a real mild headache - but this has been on going for a long time. So I am making progress. I lost another 1/2 pound for a total of 3.8 pounds.
My plan was for a 5 day juice fast (which I did have some raw foods to slow down some pretty nasty detox). I think this is my last day. I may even incorporated some fresh fruits today - I did already eat 4 organic strawberries.
I'm going to my first Raw Food Potluck this Saturday. I don't want to miss out on sampling the food - the main reason I'm going, to find foods that I like before I actually buy the ingredients, prepare and know I'll eat it and not have to throw it out. So I want to start on some fruits today and still juice, then tomorrow, more fruits and less juice.
