This juice feast will be very similar to the one I did for 80 days last year from August to October (2009) which was nothing short of AMAZING! I’ve decided it is important to detoxify thoroughly at least once yearly. It will help dump the endogenous waste stored in the cells (especially the fat cells), balance the blood stream and restore energy in my body.
I will journal daily what juices I make throughout the days and what physical and mental changes and/or challenges occur.
Well September 4th finally arrived and what a beautiful morning it was to get up early and go to the local farmer’s market. I was not really that hungry when I woke up, so I did my usual and squeezed some fresh lemon into some warm distilled water to get my kidneys cleansed. I’ve decided everyday at the very least I would have warm lemon water in the morning, mid-morning (1 quart of carrot , beet and cucumber), and for the evening juice ( 1 quart carrot, spinach) which btw is a virtual weight loss drink. I was super lucky this morning as I was able to find some rather large organic cucumbers at the market.
I know from experience that when one starts a juice feast or is drinking their nutrients it is very important to start out by taking in at least 1 gallon of fluids a day. Like today, so far I had 16oz. of warm lemon water, 1 Qt. of fresh grapefruit /raw ginger juice, plus 1 Qt.carrot/beet/cucumber and 1 Qt.carrot/spinach. The last 16oz. cold distilled water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. This rounds out to at least 1 gallon of fluids that will keep my kidneys and bloodstream clean and balanced. The nutrient level of this quantity of juice will also help satisfy any strong cravings you may have especially during the first three days of the feast. In the evening I like to end with another cup of warm distilled water with freshly squeezed lemon.
