Return to the juice fast 12 y
Well since doing 7 days on the juice fast I realised I came to a point where I was feeling really weak and fuzzy and felt it was time to break the fast. However, caution to all, it left me craving for foods that I had missed as I didnt break the fast steadily and it created a snowball effect from there.
I then went on to become very ill probably from the shock my digestice system had faced from eating so much solid food again and I have only just recovered! So post fast eating needs to be very careful and gradual.
So now I am back to face this demon again and get to day 30 and ... read more

Day 6 12 y
day 6 food glorious food
Today felt really low...really hungry....really tired....i think tomorrow will sort of follow the same pattern from reading the blogs of people who have completed the fast.
People are commenting on how ive lost weight, so it keeps me going to know that I am getting somewhere. We are having people over today and I went to the shop to get a few bits and bobs...wow little did i realise how I obsessed I WAS with food. It felt really strange not having the urge to buy a chocolate bar or a cake. Hey don’t get me wrong, the temptation was there but It just felt so cheap to lose 6 days of this ... read more
Day 5 12 y
day 5 tired and weird dreams
Well today was really hard. I woke up feeling really great but then I started to feel really strange as evening approached. I have been drinking a combination of fruit and veg juices and water. I am t-total, don’t smoke and dont drink tea or coffee so my first few days were ok, no serious withdrawal symptoms BUT....
I have been having wierd hallucination type things and really lucid dreams...
The funniest thing was today I felt so drained and tired in the afternoon, I went for a nap to recharge and thought I heard someone say they had made me chicken and potatoes!!! (Hey d ... read more
day 4 12 y
Day 4 so far so good...
Well I have been on the juice fast for 4 days now... after reading some inspiring blogs I decide to take the challenge myself. A lot of the blogs seemed to taper off after the second day so I took that as the first 4-5 days being the hardest - which is true!
However, already on day 4 and I feel great! I did so much housework today and I didnt feel like passing out after. I am also sleeping much more deeply and my bowel movements (lol) are much better, but I won’t gross u out with all the details.
So far so good. I want to make it to one week which is Tuesday.
I am doing this to lo ... read more
