Day 2 13 y
Did I have the flu, a detox, or a reaction to eating???
I knew when I ate Wednesday night that my body was not genuinely hungry. But I was helping a friend with a dinner party who had invited a potential employer, and I simply made the concsious decisi... read more
Day 1 13 y
Second time around
Last night I went ahead and ate. However, it is obvious that my body was not done, because I am sick all over. So I am going to continue fasting. What's great is that I don't feel bad or guilty ... visit the page
Day 7 13 y
Yeah! A full week.
I am feeling really great. Yesterday, around 3:00, I had a surge of energy. I felt great and refreshed. It's all right on schedule. I am still waiting for the purge of toxins, but I am assuming... read more
Day 6 13 y
Yeah! I made it past day 5!
Day 5 has been the thorn in my side. But I finally made it through it. I think my first cleanse really started to take affect yesterday. I found that I was getting very cranky, moody, emotionall... read more
Day 3,4 and 5 13 y
Day five seems to be the beginning of the cleanse.
Days three and four were great! I made sure that I did not excersise to conserve energy. Also, I am finding that taking the multi-vitamin each day has made all the difference in the world when it... read more
Day 2 13 y
Not doing too terribly bad
It's day two, and I am having my normal hunger pangs. No big deal. Last time I tried this, I was suffering from feeling like I was depleted of minerals and vitamins. This time, I a... read more

Stupid Chinese left-overs....

Day 1 13 y
Trying again in October 2007
It's time to try the fast again. I am not doing well when it comes to will power. I need all of the support that I can get. Please.
I have gained ~15lbs since March. That's when I slowly s... visit the page
Broke my fast 13 y
Broke my fast...Some lessons learned
I appreciate your comments, #75532. That gave me some insight into why I was unable to keep going. I finally gave in at day five. Day five must be the big hump.
Anyway, I am appreciative for what I did gain through this little experience:
I realized that a lot of my eating was because I was bored, not hungry.
I need to stay away from sugar!
Raw is the only way to go. I do have my exceptions like a toasted whole wheat tortilla shell for my avocado pizza, but for the most part, raw.
I lost some weight.
I need to take vitamins next time I try this.
Day 5 13 y
Another day closer
It’s day 5. Yesterday evening was really rough. I was talking to a friend, and all he talked about was food. I finally had to ask him to stop and told him that he was making me hungry. And what was even more irritating was that I was not hungry read more
Day 4 13 y
Doing much better this morning.
Yesterday was a little rough. I was so extremely tired from both the cleanse and not getting enough sleep the night before. I had two co-workers ask if I was okay. I had some extreme hunger pangs, and it was a little difficult to deal with my cravings. Oh, and I checked out my BMI last night, and it was much lower just as I had expected. It was 24.6%.
I feel pretty good today. I ended up going to bed at 7:30 last night, then woke up at 9:00, watched a show, then slept until 6:45 this morning. I feel great! I am now losing ~1lb a day, which I am assuming means that my system ... read more
Day 3 13 y
All the "ness's" are starting to show themselves...ugh!
I really struggled last night. I wanted to eat for the sake of eating. Every now and then I would get strong hunger pangs. I am really cantankerous, and I have a good friend that I am not very patient with right now-not that he deserves to be treated poorly. But he is being so patient with me. I wish everyone had a friend as great as him.
Today I am 137.0/29.6%. Silly BMI. Again, it all depends on your water intake. I will check my BMI on the scale tonight again. It usually goes down in the evening depending on how hydrated I am.
I did, however, take my before pics for this ... read more
Day 2 of Juice Fast 13 y
So far so good
Today is day 2. I am not doing too badly. It’s a pain to get back into the swing of juicing in the morning. I forgot how time consuming it can be. Plus I am taking my liver/gallbladder herbs for the big cleanse.
Some problems I am already running into:
I am finding that I have picked up the bad habit of simply picking up and eating food without any thought. I have discovered this, because I came across a cookie, and before I knew it, it was almost through my lips. I didn’t even realize it. It had to ask myself, "How did it get here?& ... read more
Trying to juice fast once more 13 y
Day 1 of second attempt
I am trying to start my second juice fast once again. Obviously I didn’t go through with the first attempt in June. This fast is for the same reasons I originally stated in the first entry of this blog. I am still a little irritable, sleepy, forgetful. I also started eating sugar again, which is so devastating to my overall health! I have finally noticed a correlation between sugar and a bad mood. It never fails!
Anyway, again, I need your support.
The following is my baseline:
Cannot think clearly
Loose track of thoughts
Cannot wake up in t ... read more
First day of my fast 13 y
I am starting my second major juice fast and I need all of the support I can get.
Hello. I am starting my juice fast this morning. I completed a 40-day fast last year, and it was the most amazing experience. I no longer have hypothyroidism and lost a great deal of weight. My head finally became clear, I was no longer moody, and I only experienced depression when I ate the wrong item. (I have been able to identify which foods cause the depression and avoid them.)
Why I am juicing again
For the most part, I have been able to keep the weight off by eating a mainly raw diet. But I started eating what my friend eats a ... read more
