STARTING DAY 5Yeah Me. I can't believe Im doing it. Now its like a routine. Its getting easier to take care of the kids meals and sit and drink juice with them. Day 4 no real hunger pains. Thank GOD. Day 3 was aweful. Pineapple juice, lots of h20, tea, lunch was tomato juice I drank so much cuz it was sooo good I only had water the rest of the day.
Today i woke up so stuffy thats the detox I wanted but Im sneezing like crazy too. It started after the tomato juice. Im at work so my juice for today is Kale, romaine, carrots, orange. I neglected any greens yesterday.
Im so making ginger tea when I get home today. It would really hit the spot now. Im not weighing till monday but my pants are looser. Im not sure how long Im going to fast but right now I feel like I could go for the long haul. Peace and love my fellow fasters.
i declare myself the elf'en faster TERF = Tarot Elf Roman Franco ;-) i am an oracle to the future
along our journey i see a book publication approaching , " erotically fasting " by elfleesha and her parzman , lmbo :-)
wow qwerty your juicing up a storm , ive got to buy a new juicer since i gave my champion to my mother im without one .
theyre all just so expensive it gets me mad so i keep holding off looking for a manual hand cranked one i know shall last decades
tracey im like one day ahead of your symptoms , im on same course . and misslinda is one who got me on ginger tea for fast because she
always uses it and we know how serious into fasting she is so i roll with it
HAIL FASTERS , I AM TERF , I SEE THE FUTURE , I SEE FATLESS FASTERS THIS SPRING 2012
Terf, I hope its definately a fatless 2012 for me!
Day 6 is going pretty well considering i didnt get my 30 mins morning exercise because of travelling.
This made me slightly cranky. However I perked up when I met up with my family and was made to walk around shops and things.
Got at least 30 minutes of walking in. Then they wanted to go for a meal.
I sat in the restaurant with my water and will power refusing to break my wonderful fast for food.
We then got home and my boyfriend made me some juice consisting of pineapple, apple, celery, cucumber, blueberries and mango. Delicious!
Hope everyone's fast is going peacefully

Fatless fasters. I'm all for that. I acquired a share last year during my huge transition from my old life into this one.

How is Miss Linda
I haven't seen her for a long time now.
Today is day five for us. We have a lot to do today and have heaps of juice to do it. Parz has released 7 pounds and I've released ten pounds. Looking forward to more releasing from us both. The clarity is here mentally which i love!!!
Have a great day everyone (((hugs)))
Day 4 for me. Much less nauseous today but I have a major headache this morning and am extremely tired. Not the sleepy kind of tired, just 0 energy tired. Started today with a ginger/turmeric/maple syrup tea and eased myself into the day. Made a large amount of pineapple/cucumber/mint juice to see me through the rest of the day. Maybe tonight I'll sip some young coconut juice.
Best wishes to the Fellowship of Fasters.
so i go to midwest super store meijers , bingo 8 huge limes $2 + huge bunch of kale $1.69
then i visit awesome local produce chain randazzo's , bingo tomatos .70 per pound
wanted to be loaded up with rich juicing vegi's in case i start fading and need a rich juice
lee ive not confered with misslinda for several months , but last time we talked she was looking better than ever
and sounded happy . you can see her raw food diet and fasting is making her healthier
You can tell you are an experienced faster MR. Being prepared is so important!!!
Every person here should already know what they are going to break their fast on an how they'll do it, how long they'll do it etc. too many fasts are broken without prep
So people how are you breaking your fast when you are ready?
I plan to break with juicing the apples in my fridge. Later I'll juice some of the carrots. I also have oranges so I'll juice them and if I need juice while I'm work I can get some orange juice there. When I'm on the solid fruits I"ll eat some more apples and get some bananas which I'm already excited for! salad on the third day
Hi All: Newbie here and for sure the senior of the crowd and on day 5 of juice fast. I have fasted before (water only) many times but 8 days was my limit. Now I feel that my health is way too compromised to do a water fast so am going to juice and see where that takes me. I am really glad to have found a group of you on the same journey to better health and wellness through fasting as I know journeying with others really helps. Because this is a new way for me I really do not know how long it will last first time around but would like it to be around 30 days or so. My first 3 days were brutal, not too bad yesterday and better even today. I am hoping this body pain especially my back ache will leave me soon.
I look forward to getting to know you all. Take care, and remember to enjoy the sunshine in your life.
welcome!!! you may be surprised at the ages in this thread. i'm 48!!!
everyone, i think i made one of those AMAZING tom juices tonight... i don't think... i KNOW i did.
celery (about 3-4" of an entire bunch)
a tiny bit of parsley - about 5 sprigs
1 carrot with greens
1/4 of an organic red pepper
1 small zucchini
actually everything but the toms were organic. toms are too expensive for me to juice them daily on a fast so i use non-organic.
then we added in an italian mix blend and some herbamere spicy (i get it at whole foods)... oh wow was it ever nice!!!
so day five is almost at a close... lots of energy today. lots!!!
please don't break your fast with bananas. they are so constipating especially after a fast. wait a week before adding them to your diet (unless you blend them in a smoothie)

papaya (my number one choice)
grapes without the skin (the skin is too hard to digest)

My day 8th water fast went well, sorry for not posting sooner, i was so busy, i will read your posts more tomorrow. Until then, wishing you well!
Blessings and love

Day 7 for me. a whole week of this amazing fast.
I just feel so good on it.
I've resisted eating out twice yesterday with my family
Which i have never been able to do before. Personal growth FTW.
i'm one of the younger ones here. I'm 19.
Went for a walk this morning. I'm not sure whether i like walking compared to actually working out in the morning.
