Day 1 recap. 8 y
I had a fruit breakfast (apple, orange and grapes) then a glass of water with psyllium at 8am.
9am hot water with lemon.
10am coconut water - I got more than 24oz out of each coconut (!) so I froze some of the water, along with the soft white flesh which I’ll use (maybe cultured?) after I finish this fast.

Experience tells me this batch will make about six, ... read more

So :) I’m ready for Saturday’s big vegetable shop, and that afternoon - October 1st - will be the start of my juice fast.
I’m aiming to juice ten days to two weeks. And I’ll be using psyllium hulls as a bowel cleanse at the same time. Usually I hit a ”detox crisis” six or seven days into a juice fast and after that it gets easier again.
So, yeah. I’ve done juice fasts of between four and twenty eight days before. That (the juicing) part of what I’m doing is no big deal.
