oh, hey guys!

I decided to build with good raw food for now. If I decide to get a fast going, I'll definitely check in with you and see how it's going.

Best of luck to you!

Hey there. I'm on day 11 or 12 or something... thinking about starting the process of breaking the fast today. Well, last night I was almost 100% sure I was going to break it today (was very hungry) but I woke up not hungry at all for anything but juice... so now I don't know. This has been an amazing fast though! Longest I've ever fasted.

Wow, that's very impressive, Cora. Congrats! What juices have you been drinking during this time?

Hey banana. I'm done now, but I did a lot of different juices. I had celery in all of them because I've found celery juice seems to keep me really balanced while fasting. So there was usually celery in there, but also a lot of different combinations of stuff like watermelon, lemon, pears, carrot, a lot of different greens like kale, lettuce, spinach, etc. My favorite juice overall though was probably the veggie juice with celery, kale, lemon, garlic, tomato, carrot a teeny bit of sea salt and cayenne. smiling smiley

I'm going to do another one in a month or two. It gets easier every time and I already miss how light and clear my mind felt during and after the fast.

Thanks for the combo, Cora. That sounds yummy. I have never put salt in any veggie juice because I usually have celery and that's pretty sodium-rich. I'll have to try it. I am gonna be making some watermelon/celery/lime juice tonight!smiling smiley

How did the fast go? I'm just starting this juicing thing. I should get my vita-mixer tomorrow. I've juiced in the past but not blended with keeping all the fiber in. Just now looking at the Brevelle. I really wanted a glass container and the Brevelle is so nice looking. But guess the important thing is the end prodoct.

I want to start a juice fast tomorrow hopefully. There are some lovely orchard apples on sale at the market and I love juicing them at this time of year. Is anyone fasting or planning on doing a fast at this time? Would love to have a buddie (s) and all the support I can get smiling smiley
happy juicing!
Nicole

New to juicing and raw foods and large amounts of vegetables in general...

I just started a juice fast yesterday and I'm thinking the five days I have set out to fast might be too much for the first time around. I haven't craved fast-food cheeseburgers for at least six months and yet every few minutes I find myself staring at my keys, realizing how easy it would be to just jump in the car and go through a drive through. That would be a terrible way to end my juice fast... crashing not only the fast but six months of carefully regimented diet.

How long will it be before the terrible feeling ends? I'm irritable and hungry (not my stomach... just my brain is hungry) and everything is in a fog. Am I just being whiny? Will it get worse?

How much juice are you taking in on a daily basis? When I juice fast I drink a minimum of 1 to 1.25 gallons every day. What kind of juice are you making? Try to remember that your body is adjusting to something new (and healthy). If you get enough nutrition and have patience, the rewards will be great. Stay strong. The first time I juice-fasted I experienced a low-grade fever, massive running of the nose, and even vomited one time. As bad as that sounds, I felt great once it was over. Concentrate on the positive aspects that should be emerging soon if they haven't already. For example, look for your skin to start getting unbelievably soft. Also understand that if you have symptoms like I did, it's not because your sick, but instead because your body is purging toxins. Also try to be aware of your consciousness. You'll start feeling very peaceful and in tune with nature. This is a good thing.

Peace.
