It has taken me so long to write this “day 21” post. I know I am ready to end the “mommy’s losing it” blog posts, but have been trying to figure out how. I have learned a lot while on this “partial” fast. I say “partial” because, I did not only juice. Because it was my first time, I still ate raw. Most of my nutrients came from juice. For several days I only juiced, but not long enough to call it a strict juice fast. All other days I ate at least one salad. I did not eat anything cooked. My body was still able to detox, and I feel great!
I will be doing more strict juice fasts in the future. This experience was very positive and, honestly, a lot of fun. I was able to break any food addictions, including sugar, caffeine, starches, etc. I did not feel cravings or hunger. The juice was very satisfying. That is not to say everyone will experience the same thing. I am only giving my account, I believe everyone’s body is treated differently so everyone’s experience will be different.
I will continue to juice several times a day. I like knowing I am getting so many nutrients and am doing something so healthy. I simply love the way I feel.
I recommend reading lots of books on the subject and scouring the internet for information. Obviously, if you have any health problems or are concerned in the least, consult a physician. Preferably one who is in favor of juicing.
I wanted to post one last detox recipe for a friend (and an excellent resource): (click the pic)
