SO ready for some regular food.  My friend “Deidra” and I decided to start adding vegetables back into or diets today.  We are continuing to juice but we will also eat vegetables today and tomorrow getting or stomachs ready for real food starting Tuesday.  We’ve also decided that the juicing starting January 7th will be accompanied with eating veggies while juicing at least three times per day.  We were talking about why not eat vegetables too?  In the movie “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead,” Joe Cross has a scene where he talks about the necessity of juicing as it would be impossible to eat as many vegetables to get all the nutrition we get from juicing.  Using that logic there’s no reason to avoid eating veggies or fruits.  We just have to make sure we don’t over do it on the fruits that are full of sugar.

Until tomorrow…

Yesterday I was very hungry.  But even still, I wasn’t STARVING like on 99% of other diets.  I’m going to the grocery store today to get some Kale.  I’m thinking I wasn’t hungry when drinking Kale juice so keep your fingers crossed!  today is a beautiful day here in the mountains.  I would love to get out and take some pics but first I must go to the store and get some greens and fruits.

I’m completing my 7th full-day  of eating nothing and only juicing.  I can NOT believe it even possible.  In fact, this is the ONLY diet I’ve EVER been on where I wasn’t STARVING!  I HIGHLY recommend it!

If you open your double door refrigerator and this is what you see either Bugs Bunny has moved in OR you’re on a juice fast!

Until tomorrow…

Today is day 5 of my 10-Day Juice Fast.  Again this morning I woke up and I was asleep on my stomach.  I immediately noticed I didn’t feel quite as well as I did the previous three mornings.  I’ve also noticed that today I’m hungry.  NOT FAMISHED but yes hungry.  For the first time in over 4 days I’m truly hungry.  I’m hoping this is a passing phase as the lack of hunger has been the easiest part of doing this fast. Overall, I’m feeling much better than when I started.  After all, that is my goal!  Better health.  Weight loss will just be a bonus.  I will continue on my quest today and 5 more.  At which point I will step on the scale and we shall see what the weight loss benefits actually are.  If I were this hungry every day, a long term fast of 60 days or more would be much more difficult.  We shall see.

This evening I went to The Biltmore Estate with a friend.  During the holidays they have it open at night and all decorated for Christmas. It was truly amazing.  Also, they had musicians performing inside the house.  They were all very talented and it just made the ambiance that much nicer.

Most of the day I was hungry but again, not starving like on almost every single diet I’ve ever done.  My friend “Deidra” CHEATED TODAY!  Well cheated may be a strong word.  We had agreed not to weigh until after the ten-days were completed.  She however COULD NOT WAIT.  She lost 8.5 pounds in just 5 days.  She is so excited.  I knew the weight loss would come because the amount of calories we’re taking is so very low.  She wasn’t convinced, BEFORE TODAY.

Until tomorrow…
