I just had my second juice for the day. AM juice was my triple orange juice - tangerine, canteloupe, and carrots. It's a good blend. PM - pineapple ginger. I crave that pineapple juice! It's probably the sugar, but whatever. Maybe it is the mineral/vitamin content. I don't know. But I'm honoring the craving. I need some veggie juice, as I haven't been very balanced. I read somewhere the fruit juice makes you detox faster, whereas vegetable juice makes the detox process much easier because of less blood sugar up and downs. I got some fennel to juice, and am anxious to try it. I don't know what to combine it with, though. I'll probably on have the two juices for today. I don't really need three a day anymore.
I had a bm today, on my own, no swf or anything. I'm not sure if I should do a flush or not. I am eliminating on my own at least every other day. Is that enough?
I got ketone strips to monitor my urine for ketosis. I've read that part of why as fast works is that the body goes into ketosis when it is forced to go into its fat stores for energy. I was in between trace and mild ketosis. I don't know what you should be striving for. I'm sure that the higher the ketones, the worse you'd feel, but maybe that's what it takes for a fast to really work. I don't know. I'm going to post on the juice fast board here to see if anyone knows.
Detox symptoms today are a little more intense. I feel very introspective, as evidenced by my earlier post. I'm also feeling tired but not bone tired. More lazy, I guess. In a few minutes I am getting off the computer and cleaning the darn house! I am also having some transient aches in my abdomen region. I keep thinking I smell things like cigerette smoke and food cooking, when I couldn't be. I've never really been a smoker, so I don't know if I could be detoxing secondhand smoke. I don't know. I would like to report more progress with my skin. It is looking better but it isn't where I hoped it would be. I have a little bit of a headache, just a little bit of the blahs today. And my breath is a little bit bad. Then there are food cravings - which I am having. I want an avocado and some lime juice. I am going to clean for a few hours, then take a long, relaxing shower and get to bed early for work tomorrow.
