Ok, so I need to report that during the fast there were challenges and even now there are challenges, but nothing that I wouldn’t do time and time again. The health benefits far out way the discomfort or the want to eat solid foods. When fasting, the toxins are released into your system and excreted and cleaned out in several ways; sweating, kidneys, liver, pee, poop, and so on. Juice fasting allows the detox to be slower than just water fasting.
Wow, five days went a lot faster than I had anticipated. The last day was good and I wanted to start eating so I decided to break the fast, even though it was going really well. Breaking the fast properly might be more challenging that the fast itself. I can only add small pieces of raw fruits and veggies into my diet over the next several days. I just continue to keep juicing, drinking my herbal teas, and now add the raw foods.
Well, I’ve moved into my last 24 hours of juice fasting. I feel really great!! I’m not very weak and my body feels good. My concentration at work today was really good and I didn’t feel like I needed to go home.
