  • Why I'm doing this fast (and this blog)   by  Bearded One     15 y     3,182       5 Messages Shown       Blog: My 30 Day Juice Fast Journal
    Hello Out there,

    I'm writing this blog so I can have a body of work that documents my attempted 30 day juice fast. I'm also hoping to recieve some encouragement from other juice fasters who have gone before me. Any comments or suggestions are highly appreciated.

    First, a little about who I am and why I'm doing this fast. I am a 31 year old male who has been living like he was 18 for the better part of ten years now. I've been systematically abusing my poor body for a long time. Although I am a very spiritual person I have been lax in really connecting to that part of myself for a long time. I've been searching for a way to cleanse my body, loose weight and re-connect to my spiritual side for a long time.

    I first was turned on to the idea of juicing by my parents (who are avid juicers themselves) when I was still in high school. I loved fresh vegetable juice and made it myself when I was home (we had a huge Champion Juicer). I remember making a veg-juice in the morning before school and not feeling hungry for almost the entire school day. After I went away to college and later moved out of state I sort of forgot about how much I really loved that fresh juice.

    It was about a month ago that I happened to walk into what I thought was a Chinese resteraunt only to discover that it was a raw foods/juice bar. This made me remember my juicing back home so I decided to order one. Wow!! what a wake-up call. As I was sipping my juice I happened to notice some books they had for reading and noticed a book on how to do a Juice Fast (the one written by Sproutman). I've been researching it ever since and decided last week that I am going to attempt a 30 day juice-fast. Although I've read numerous times that a fast should be undertaken solemly with as little people knowing as possible (I think there is a quote from the Bible regarding this aspect as well) I feel that it would be helpful to get as much information from fellow previous or current fasters to help me with this journey.

    I am going to try to update this journal every day of the fast (as well as my 5 days both pre and post-fast). And with that.... I'm off to write about day 5 of my pre-fast!!!

      hi there, i feel i should also do a 30 day fast. but to be honest the longest i have fasted is 5 days. i dont have a very good juicer, so i'll be using 50/50 "home-made juice" / "store bought drinks"... and probably making broth for when things get rough in the beginning. but im willing to try for 30 with ya', so let me know if you want a buddy! im 29 year old male, i have been incredibly abusive to my body with drugs and alcohol, and am quite overweight(i'd guess about 80-90 pounds). these are my reasons for fasting. pretty good huh? ;)
      so are you starting tomorrow?

      best wishes

        Hey there Qanitus,

        Sure man, I'd love to have a buddy on this trip. I'm actually planning on starting on strict juice this Saturday (I figure it will be easier to start off when I don't have to work). I too am way overdue for this cleansing and weight loss. Ideally, I'd like to lose about 40lbs (I'm not sure if that is realistic or not).
        I'm really treading into uncharted waters myself but so far my initial pre-fast diet of two fresh juices and a salad has been totally fine. I highly suggest you invest and get yourself a decent juicer as I tried doing a juice fast once before with store bought and quickly had to abort it. Even if you don't go the whole 30 days it would still be nice to know that someone else is starting on that journey with you. Have you started your own blog yet???

        Peace

          hi again

          well, the juicer i have is decent enough for 60 dollars. its the centrifugal kind and does carrots and apples pretty well, but has trouble with the leafy greens for some reason. i'll figure out a method that works, but im going to have some crap store bought juice around anyway, just for those times i dont want to deal with it. as far as weight loss, come what may...i dont know whats "realistic" as everyones reality is different, but i think you can do it if you want to. less juice - more water, some light calisthenics in the morning, etc...
          today im hopefully going to be getting a call about a job. i have my fingers crossed as i've been looking for 3 weeks now. hopefully things pan out, and i will start the fast with you tomorrow on a very upbeat note. if not, it just seems its going to be harder to stay focused while im all anxious looking for employment, but i'll still do it. will you be keeping track of weight loss during this fast? we can compare results if you like. it might make it kind of fun that way

          cheers

            Sounds good to me!!

            I will be keeping track of my results both with my weight and other figures such as cholesterol and liver enzyme activity (I had the blood test done this past tuesday and I will be comparing the results with another test once I'm finished).

            What juicer do you have?? You can probably buy a decent hand juicer for your greens. In fact, I am considering buying a hand crank juicer myself so I can add wheatgrass into my juices. I need to research how much and where to buy them.
