I won’t kid.. as the day went on I started to feel horrid.. I was having body aches and headache with light sensitivity almost like I was getting a migraine. I kept going and lying down and making my bedroom dark.
I was surprised that I already was having detox. I guess it is actually day three back on Raw so maybe it’s time. Also I am coming directly from a SAD diet...
I lost another 1.4 pounds overnight, that is 5.4 pounds in three days back on Raw (1.5 days juice feast so far) Seems high in the weight loss dept.. I guess it is the first few days so I will slow down eventually.
DH was sweet and bought more produce for me on the way home from work. I am beyond thankful for my husband. He supports me in whatever I do.
I am supposed to do an enema today. I did a coffee enema a couple of times through my last juice feast.. I only did 7 days juice I think last time. I am shooting for 10 days this time. One day I would like to do a 40 day juice feast but I want to be on Raw for a while before I do that!.
I felt fair this AM when I got up.. very thirsty which surprises me with all the juice and water I am drinking.
I had my lemon water first thing and am now enjoying a watermelon, lime juice for breakfast. YUM! I am trying not to be too afraid of fruit as I know I need the calories to make it a FEAST not a FAST but I try to have most sweet fruit in the first half of the day. I worry about candida but so far I have not had any more issues with it since the months of going very low carb.
Been watching Amethyst’s Juice Feasting (100 days!) videos here: http://rawfoodrehab.ning.com/video/video/listForContributor?screenN... SO jealous that she lives in NYC. What fun. And within walking distance of a yoga studio! Some day I want to do Bikram too. I have always felt too fat. I do go to a gentle yoga class though.
A couple of lovely juices:
and watermelon, celery, lime below (breakfast this AM!)
Well here’s to day 2. How is everyone else doing?
