Juice fast partners?
I am starting a 5 day juice/blended food fast and would love some partners to do it with me. Any takers? I've been wanting to do this for a while, but it seemed so overwhelming. I figure a 5 day fast is much less overwhelming than an 10-20-30 day fast. Perhaps once I prove to myself I can do 5 days, I'll have more confidence.
funny you should mention it....but I was seriously thinking the same thing myself today. Your offer makes me want to do this even more.
I'll join you Monday morning and go for as long as I can with you.
I'll start monday morning as well.
Hi there. I'm on day three of my juice fast today. I don't know how many more days I'll go as I'm taking it one day at a time....but it's nice to know there's others out there too.
Hello, I am starting a fast today, planned on doing green smoothing in the morning and vegge/or fruit juices at night...Lets do this!
It is only when you discard your bad habits that you are really a free man. Until you are a true master, able to command yourself to do the things that you should do but may not want to do, you are not a free soul. In that power of self-control lies the seed of eternal freedom.

Some of my favorites are:
3 apples and one pear
3 or 4 oranges for straight up o.J. (sometimes I add a wee bit of black cherry concentrate - organic of course)
3 apples and 1 stalk of celery
watermelon - either with a handful of grapes or on it's own -it's wonderful!
carrot with a bit of cucumber and beet (the red root, not the green)
Those are just a few, have fun trying them out. :)
well, I got derailed by life and didn't get to start my fast. I'll let you know when I do.
okay, life is being more friendly today. Had a good juicing day (so far). Had an odd realization that I can juice anytime I want to. I don't have to wait for a mealtime to roll around. (weird how that never crossed my mind before, huh?) So I've had more juice than I would have normally allowed myself before. Roughly ever 3 hours or so. So far today I've had:
tomato/celery with a sprinkle of Celtic sea salt
They have been so delicious! my trillions of cells are shoutin' hallelujah!
Ok, editing here:
Nobody ever said I was brilliant, but I've blown it already. Snacked on baby carrots and hummus (NOT raw... ) around 4pm.
I often need just one meal on the first day of a fast. After the first day, I can make it through without. So I'll try to do better tomorrow. All those juices sure did make me feel terrific. I'm bummed that I blew it so quickly and easily. Tomorrow is another day.
so far today:
tomato/celery/pinch of Celtic sea salt
How are you doing on your fast? I wasn't ready to commit verbally, but I did anyway and have finished 3 days on a juice fast. I'm going for 10 hopefully but am taking it one day at a time just to prove I really can do it and hopefully get over this chronic fatigue/candida yeast thing!
starting over tomorrow on mine. wish me luck. I got derailed as well. I went to the doctor the other day and I weigh 200lbs. I am so upset right now about that, that I can't stand to look at myself in the mirror. I am only 5'4" and small framed. So, you can imagine what I look like. Good luck you all and God bless
*sigh* alas I am once again derailed by life.
I am going to have another run at it another time. Will keep you posted.
Well, I've come to the point that my body cannot handle any solid food so a juice fast sounds PERFECT! I'll join in as of tomorrow.
BTW, what are you all using for elimination?

I'm on day 11. I've started to add in a little raw fruit. Today I made almond milk to transition out, but I think I'm going to stay juicing mostly for a while still. To cleanse: I am using a warm water enema in an old fashioned kind of enema bag once a day. It's amazing what is still coming out!
