Made a delicious juice for lunch today! A whole cucumber, 1/2 bunch of celery, 1 big tomato, a spring of green onion and splash of lemon juice. Made a ton and was very filling.
MysticTree, sounds like you have a great system! Juicing wouldn't be very practical or appropriate for this trip (gonna be staying in a very small apartment with 6 other people, and will be very busy), but I do intend on eating as cleanly as possible while I'm there, and picking back up with juicing when I get home. I'm gonna be in New York City, so I do look forward to hitting up a couple of juice bars in my free time. I've never been to one, I figure it'll be a fun treat, and might also make juicing seem less scary to my travel buddies.
day 12 and probably my last day . . . maybe!
I had always planned to break tomorrow so I shall allow that if that's where I find myself tomorrow. I do plan to fast again on Monday though.
Currently sipping juice at my desk and getting ready to start work.
Have a good one everyone.
Lots of people commenting at work about my juices and saying how disgusting they are. I say try it and then you can say it's disgusting. So now I have them admitting that the juices actually taste nice (my boss is having a pint every lunchtime with me) but they all agree with each other that they smell horrible. Baby steps :)
Today's my second day of juice fasting. During the night I felt like I was starving and now I feel so satiated. Stuffed even. I don't know how I'll be able get 86 ounces down, especially while drinking water.
I just had a juice of carrot, beet, honey crisp apple and ginger. It was awesome. I'd never had beet before, let alone juiced it and the color was so... pretty.
Broke my fast last night. I will be back at some point. Good luck everyone.
I started a juice fast this afternoon and it lasted all of 2 hours LOL. I felt so hungry I said screw it and had a few giant collard wraps :-/
one month juice fast, help
I am on day 6 of my one month juice fast. The first few days were really hard for me but I feel much better already. I decided to do it while in sri lanka as it is so peaceful here and it helps that I don't really like curry which is pretty much all they serve here! I there is a lack of vegatable juices here so I have been buying my own and asking the hotel to blend it. I usually have to start the day off with ginger or lemon tea and then a juice with avacado in (for example this morning was avacado/papaya. The rest of my juices throughout the day are vegatable ones. I was wondering if it was ok to have avacado in the morning. Or is it better to have just fruut juice? I am not a fan of banana and fruit with a lot of sugar in. But feel that your most heavy or sugary juice should be in the morning?
Another question- I got up the other morning and nearly blacked out, felt very dizzy. I'm finding I have to stand up very slowly all the time. Is this normal?
I am quite a slim person, weighing around 54 kg. Will I loose a lot of weight in a month? I don't want to end up looking very frail.
Hope someone can answer some questions! Thanks very much!
Are you having juices or smoothies? I can't imagine juicing an avocado but that doesn't mean you can't of course.
Sorry I didn't really clarify that. Both but mainly smoothies!
So I was reading up on beets and apparently if you have too much beet juice it can lead to a build up metals in the liver. The article on Livestrong.com even says to have one beet a week. I've had like five in the past few days. Great. I'm really worried, now.
I wouldn't worry too much. Just research more. Might be worth asking Arky what he thinks about that though. He is very knowledgeable on metals. The same web page states we should all be "treating" fresh juices to prevent bacterial sickness. I also found various other sources saying that beetroot juice is good for dealing with metals. I was juicing a couple a day last week when I was having juices.

I'm back for a day of water fasting. Not planning anything longer this week.
Hi. New here and although planning on a proper intro on the "Who are you" forum later, I wanted to put it out there now that today I am starting my 5 days juice fast, as I wanted my goal in writing.
I'm back! Started lemonade fasting yesterday, I'm feeling swell. The taste gets pretty boring, though. I plan to move into a more exciting (and nutritious) mix of juices after the weekend, when I can afford to buy groceries =)
Wow I can’t believe I found a fasting thread. Geeze this website has everything!
Just thought I would pop in and say hi. I know it is a bit late in the month to join this thread but today I am starting a juice and smoothie fast. Tomorrow is the full moon so I guess I am going with the moon cycle.
Last week I did a two day juice and smoothie fast as a trial run and I was successful so now I am going to attempt a longer one. I am not sure how long I will do this for but for now I am setting a goal of 7 days (with the exception of Wednesday because I have an event I am going to).
Anyhow, I am excited to get to know other fasters. How is your fasting going?
