A 60 day juice fast is just what this home-body needs!  I start tomorrow, juicing fruit and veggies, drinking tea and water. 
Juicer:

Veggies:

Stats:
Weight 140lbs
Measure:
hips 35
thigh 22
upper arm 13
neck 13
calf 15
Goals:
Break addiction of sugar, caffeine, white flour.  Sleep 8 hours.  Juice all meals and snacks.  Lots and lots of water.  Lose 20 lbs, and lots of inches!


I’ve prepared for day 1 breakfast with a juice of beets, carrots, apples, lemon, and ginger.  374 calories 

Counting calories in juice:
I have read that in order to count calories the fiber is deducted from the total.  In order to deduct the fiber it needs to be multiplied by 4. 
example:  an apple is 53 calories; fiber is 2.4g; 2.4 x 4 = 9.6
total calories for the apple: 43.4 calories

Keeping a food journal:
The above example is exactly why keeping a journal would be important.  Once the apple calories are counted the first time and written in the food journal there is no need to have to remember those calories again.  Making each time the juice is recorded that much easier and convenient.
