INTRO: 15-Day Juice Fast & Master Cleanse
There comes a time in every persons life when they reach a crossroads of sorts. I have reached my crossroads. I have debated with myself for weeks now and have come to the conclusion that I must “reboot” my life. While combing through my very existence I have deduced that I have not been good to myself at all. I have lived a somewhat reckless life dabbling in the occasional recreational puff of “herb” and drinking beer and my beloved Hennessy on numerous unjustified outings. My eating habits and diet have consisted of just about anything that I have wanted including my kryptonite-red meat, prime rib and rib eye steaks, mainly, cooked to perfection by yours truly.
It has only been recently that I have been somewhat conscious of what I was putting in my mouth and how it may affect me in the long run. It’s no secret that I have been big all my life, I don’t really call it a weight issue as I have not tried every fad diet nor do I intend to. I am sure many would say otherwise because I am probably medically classified as very obese if not super obese, but I don’t feel this term relates to me. I do not feel obese nor do I see obese when I look in the mirror. I do see fat and extra baggage but not obesity. I believe that the latter is probably just a matter of time and this is why I am going to do something about it now. I have no passion to be slim or skinny, but I do want to be fit, strong and able to enjoy certain things in life that others may take for granted.
My main goal is to achieve a level of enlightenment that will allow me to be in an elevated mental and emotional state. I would love to have a mind and soul, “so clear that I’ll smell colors and hear scents”, as it was so eloquently put by a fellow CureZone.org member, Dazzle. It is her journal that single handedly helped me to make up my mind and attempt my journey.
I will be embarking on a 5-day juice fast and 10 day master cleansing to help rid my body of some of the toxins that I have riddled it with. Why 15 days you may ask, well, this is realistically my first fast and I fear that trying to engage in a sustained fast of 30 or more days will prove to be much more than I can handle. I have researched and read many different journals and figure that 15 days should be enough to initiate the detox period and give my body a fighting chance in repairing and healing itself. It is my new found belief that the human body is much more capable of diagnosing and healing itself than any antibiotic or over the counter medication. I have seen slight improvement in areas in just drinking 16 oz. of fruit and veggie juices daily. It seems that weight loss is a by product of a juice fast which is not my main intent, but it is welcomed with open arms and will hopefully give me the boost I need to continue to eat and live well with an overall outcome of a reduction in weight. I will also incorporate some strength training and some aerobic training as well.
I have stocked up on fresh organic fruits and vegetables. I have even gone as far as to discontinue use of my normal deodorants, soaps, shampoos and toothpaste for their all natural counterparts. I do not want my body to have to encounter any negative distractions while on my journey. So with that being said, today I have consumed only fruit and veggie juices along with RAW foods such as organic fruit and vegetables. I will end the day with another apple, celery, orange, cucumber, carrot, ginger and strawberry juice. This is all in preparation, as my fast begins tonight at 10 pm (Sunday July 30th 2006), and I did not want to fill my body with dead, cooked, heavy and unhealthy food. I have not had anything “bad” to eat since 10:00pm yesterday.
And so it begins…
