Day one juice fast
Day one of my 30 day juice fast. This is going to be hard work but well worth it

The main reason why I'm doing this juice fast is weight loss (5.4", 10 stone 10lb) and secondary is cleansing. I was unwell at Christmas and was told I had epstein barr virus and the nutrionalist recommended I try a juice fast to cleanse and rejuvenate. Anyway, turned out I didn't have the virus (long story) but I did the juice fast and the results were amazing - the whites of my eyes shone like never before, my skin was fantastic and mental clarity was amazing. Of course that was after I'd been through the horrible symptoms of fasting - bad breath (luckily I was single at time!), awful headache, itchy skin, severe mood swings (laughing one minute and feeling like throwing the television out of the window when food advertisements came on the next). I lasted 5 days and kicked myself for not staying on it for longer.
The only difference with this fast is that I'm taking supplements also. Each day I will drink as much water as I like (bought a water filter and now quite enjoy drinking water), drink a variety of juices (all diluted with water and with half teaspoon of virgin olive oil), 3 times a day I take 2 psyllium husk and 2 charcoal capsules (bentonite clay to difficult to buy on high street and too expensive!) and at a separate time to taking the husk and charcoal, I take 1 herbal laxative.
I also take a coffee enema each day which I love! If anyone had previously told me I'd enjoy pouring coffee into my bum rather than my mouth, I would have laughed but it's getting to be a bit of an obession for me since I did them on my last juice fast. I quite enjoy examining what has come out which at present (day one) is only mucous but I remember on my last fast finding a ringworm - most people would be horrified, I was over the moon!
favourite juices - apple, 2 carrots and big handful of spinach
pear, apple, half a lime
Anyway, DAY ONE
Getting up and drinking hot water with slices of lemon rather than a large coffee is strange but after having had 3 cups and feeling deprived of coffee, it is quite nice just to have a hot drink. Took all my supplements and had a coffee enema which released black poo (from charcoal capsules) and lots of mucous. Feels good to be getting all this badness out of me. Skin was itching like mad and have already got a few hives and spots so took an epsom salt bath which has eased it. Quite worried whether I will sleep tonight. People always talk about sleeping like babies while fasting, it has the opposite effect on me and getting to sleep is a long hard task.
Feeling a bit heady, my neck aches and thinking about pizza quite a bit but apart from that I'm doing OK but it is only day one - 29 to go!
