Hi Cindy, Thanks for the friend request! I got all my juicefeasting info (grocery list included) on juicefeasting dot com. I just couldn't understand why tomatoes were not on the list, but I'm going to include them at least once or twice a week now :) Have a nice day! :)
Hey! Learn about all of this before diving head first. You gotta figure, I've been Raw for 6 years and when I first went 100%, after years of migraines and non-functioning thyroid, I didn't know how to do ANYTHING and there was not a lot of info out there. Don't burn yourself out trying to do it all, all at once. I try to drink half my weight in water a day (in ounces) - that's the rule of thumb. Do I do it everyday? No, but I strive to. And same with juice. It's about a gallon a day, some days less. It depends. Do I beat myself up if I don't consume enough of either? Nope, I just try to do better the next day.
Hey Cindy - hmmm, a typical day for me would be waking up and immediately drinking a quart of water; to break my fast from the night before. Then I will make a fruit juice and my green juice, which is either either a green smoothie or green juice to take to work. Like today I had orange and pineapple, it made 16 ounces. Then I made a green juice - cucumber, romaine, spinach, and 2 apples. This made 32 ounces. I also drink (at work) about 51 ounces of water, before lunch. Lunch I came home and made a peach/papaya smoothie (just water, one peach and one papaya, blended and ice). I also drink another 32 ounces of water. I haven't decided what I will juice for dinner, but I'm thinking kale, apple, carrots maybe, 32 ounces, and more water before bed.
I DO take 500 mg of a kelp supplement for my thyroid. I will also add wheatgrass powder, msm, spirulina, green powder, which contains a slew of land and sea greens. I'm using these up and may or may not buy more. Probably WILL buy more. I tend to do a teaspoon of each, but I did not start out with that much.
Gradually work your way up to more of whatever. Make foods you will WANT to eat/drink. DO NOT EXPECT instant results.
Pre juice fast/feast I was spinning an hour a day and/or lifting weights (kettle bell) or rebounding. Just changing it up. I have NOT done any workouts since fasting, because I usually get a fasting headache (didn't this time), but did not want to aggrevate it and bring one on. I will begin moving my body again this week.
