Inspired by the documentary 'Fat, Sick and nearly dead', I set out to try a 10 day juice fast in order to reboot my body and cleanse it from the inside out! Yea a lot of people's first thoughts are that its a diet, a drastic measure to be healthy or whatever else you can think of. But for me this is BY NO MEANS a diet or a way of shedding weight because to be honest I don't need to lose weight. I have healthy lifestyle with plenty of good food and daily exercise but this juice fast is something I want to do for myself. I am blogging about it for myself and for the people who are interested in following my experience with this. I am not looking for nasty comments about it.
Anyway.... With that out of the way... Here was Day 1 for me!
Having purchased tonnes of fruit and veggies from the veggie shop down the street (so handy) yesterday, I was prepared to start my fast today starting with making a massive hug of juice to sip on during the day. I planned to make a different jug of juice every day with different ingredients and sip on water and herbal trade inbetween.
Today I juiced carrots, celery, ginger, oranges, apples, kale and mint which was pretty much. A mix of everything I had. I put it in a jug and set it in the fridge. I had s green tea for breakfast, a few glasses of juice during the day and peppermint tea before work. At work I sipped on tonnes of water and finally finished the jug of juice before bed along with some peppermint tea. Needless to say I anticipated a few wakes in the night for loo runs but hey that's a cleanse for ya.
Tmro I plan to make another jug of juice and repeat the same thing with maybe having a seperate squash/sweet potato/carrot juice for dinner. The funny thing was when I purchased more veggies today the cashier with an astounded look on his face said to me 'I'm assuming this is for smoothies or something' and laughed. I will be their best customer this week.
In terms of how I feel, I feel lighter obviously because I haven't eaten solid foods but a little weak. The first three days are the hardest they say, so let's push on and do this ! I will be finished the detox the wknd of my birthday which is perfect
Over and out x
