At the begining of November, I started a juice diet. I drank about 8 oz of fresh juice from a variety of fruits every day, except on the 6th, 7th, 10th, 16th, 18th, 20th, 22nd, 23rd, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th, when all I drank was water. That's 13 out of 30 days on water only. On the first of November I weighed 123 lbs, and now I weigh 104, but I've only lost two pounds in the last six days (five of which were water-only days). So is it possible that I actually lost more weight on juice than on water alone?
Note: I only did yoga and simple breathing techniques durring the first 24 days of my fast, but on the 25th, 26th, and 29th, I added a 10 minute light jog to my usual schedule.
Wow - 104 is really low, unless you are really, really short. Like 5' flat. That is just really low. Maybe it is why you are losing. Also, water fasting is sort of hard on you. I hit a plateau on my juice fast about a month in, back in May, and then broke through and kept losing. I wouldn't jog on a water fast, though. Be careful.
Yes, I'm a very short lady. I'm only 4'10". What happened to you durring your plateu? And how long did it last? Should I just go back to juice? I'm definately not exercising anymore, just doing stretches every morning.
My plateau lasted more than a week and a half. I got very discouraged. Then, all of a sudden, it was like my body caught up to the weight loss, and I dropped like 4 or 5 pounds suddenly.
And at 4'10", your weight goal is fine.
I would recommend doing more juice than water. Or even cutting the juice by hald with water and seeing what that does. good luck!!!
Yes it is possible to lose more weight on juice than water. But it is not which one is better but your body decides where it should place that extra energy from not digesting food. You should enjoy reading this webpage about the rate at which someone loses weight. It teaches you to trust your body's intelligence. Plus stress is fattening so do not worry about how fast you lose weight.
