Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
My husband and I began the journey of juice fasting 9 days ago. We set our own rules to juice only fruits and vegetables and as much as we want throughout the day. We given ourselves 3 meals a week for me and 4 meals a week for him to have whenever there is a need or want for them. We decided we would allow 1 day a week for wine and fun per week.
The first few days of juicing I was miserable and irritable. I won't lie. My husband has juiced much more than I ever had while I was more of advid primitive/Atkins dieter. He drink a big glass of juice and tell me how full he was while I on the other hand couldn't ever get enough and felt hungry all day long. This lasted all week. The weekend sunk up near day 5 and I could actually see that my body was reducing in weight and I felt great until I woke up Friday with this vertigo that through me out of whack....I was down for the weekend and fighting my way to stability. Not sure what that was all about.
Yesterday we started off with Monday and I felt pretty darn good again. I actually manage to have a huge juice in the morning filled with every vegetable and fruit alive and it was heaven. I didn't have another until late in the evening last night. I was so surprised at how much energy I had and stayed full. I could go on and on and on all day and night. This morning I put out my vegetables and fruit and admire all the colors from orange, dark greens, to yellow...I loved what I was doing for myself. Tonight is one of our meals we are going to have because it's my step daughters birthday dinner we are having has a family. I don't know but I don't want to stop drinking my juice to eat what we are making which is a gumbo filled with meat and chicken...I have already decided this morning that I will stick to a dark green salad tongitht and not eat the other and just move on....why stop a good feeling?
When I watched a video on you tube last night the slim, healthy young woman said it beautifully. When you cook foods, you kill the enzymes, so why put dead food in your mouth, when you can have food that is alive...wow! I never saw food that way but it makes so much sense.
I'm excited about this journey and all the transformations I sense will take place for both my husband and I....Looking forward to it all and reading the post and journals here to learn more.
