Day 3/60- Juice Feast.

Posted on: March 13, 2010

At 11.00am today I could still be found in bed. Had a deep sleep (occasionally disturbances from Kitten), but awoke with no headache and feeling really good.

What I did find today was a growling stomach. Continuous growls. I apologize to those who may have heard it far, far away. Hubby wanted to know what was going on in there. I wish I could have explained, as the odd thing was I simply was not hungry. No cravings for anything (bananas, mangoes, salads, smoothies). I simply have not wanted to eat a thing all day. This mat be seen as a good thing, but this is a FEAST and not a FAST.

What is the difference between a juice feast and a juice fast?

A fast lowers your juice consumption, decreasing nutrition and calorie intake. In a feast you are aiming to still consume the nutrition and calories your body requires to function as it should do. Due to this reason, you can stay on a feast longer than you can a fast, while reaping from the cleansing benefits, which I will discuss in later blog entries.

During a fast your metabolism slows down, therefore leading to energy slumps, which I do not want to experience. Maybe I just need to drink the juice regardless of my not wanting any.

Considering little juice inside of me I feel really good.

Today’s menu

  • MSM and water
  • 1 quart kale, apple, carrot and ginger
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil

Below are some photos of the this evenings juice that really was most yummy.
