Juicing



I never thought I would be the person that would do a juice fast. A friend of mine introduced me to juicing about 15 years ago and I bought a juicer (a Champion) and tried a few things but never really got into it. 
 I kept the juicer and every so often I would juice up some produce but never made a commitment to juicing every day much less eating nothing else but juice. Then I came across a video called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I watched it on YouTube but the connection was wonky and I didn't get to see the last 30-45 minutes of it. I finally got back to the last part and thought that maybe juicing as a supplement to my efforts of eating a raw diet seemed like a pretty good idea. I juiced a little and enjoyed it. My husband thought it was kinda silly that I wouldn't eat the whole fruit or vegetable, but he drank the juice and was semi supportive of the idea. I sat him down and had him watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and now he is completely on board. He is now using juice as a supplement to his diet because he is afraid of losing anymore weight because he is already almost too thin. I am juicing for all of my meals right now and plan to do so for at least 30 days and maybe longer. 

Sunday evening, after watching the video with my husband, we juiced everything we had in the refrigerator. I drank it all yesterday. I won't lie, I was miserable yesterday evening. I was so hungry I could have eaten anything and everything you put in front of me. I stopped by the grocery store after coaching gymnastics to get more produce and had to psych myself up just to walk in the store. I survived the first day, barely!! 

Here is the run down so far
Sunday I drank juice for dinner that morning I weighed 230
Monday I juiced all day that morning I weighed 228.5 Monday evening I was 229 (that is huge because usually at night I have gained at least 5 lbs sometimes up to 10 during the day)
Tuesday I stepped on the scale in the morning and I was 226.5

I am amazed! I am in for the long haul! If you would like to join me let me know!
