So, I’m on day 4 of my “juice diet”. When I was reading Joe’s reboot diet he recommended at least 2 juices a day, 16 oz. each, for the first five days. I’ve done that. I have eaten vegetables or fruit twice a day too. I’ve had a cup of herbal tea once a day and the rest? Water. I’m probably not drinking enough.
I made a nice beet juice that first day and then again the second day and the smell alone almost made me sick. I’m having a problem with the juices! Since I’m mainly eating veggies twice a day (peas, squash, carrots) I don’t mind if my juices are on the sweeter side, as long as they still have at least one vegetable.
I hesitate to call this a juice diet since I am eating a small amount of vegetables and fruits, but according to the parameters in the book I’m legit 🙂 Plus, if I still only do 2 juices a day and only eating fruits and vegetables until the 27th I will consider this a win. My body needs this detox.
The good stuff – I’ve lost 4 pounds. Yay 🙂 I haven’t had a headache since day 1. I mostly don’t even feel hungry (although when I made the guys bacon on Tuesday that was pretty tough). Considering the crap that I was putting in my body before I know I’m doing something good for my health.
The bad stuff – I’ve needed extra sleep. I have less energy. I did get lightheaded that first day, but not since. I do not want to make another juice 🙁 I’m sick of making them already. This week has been a slow while Gage has been at school, so I’ve been able to nap.
My yummy juice from yesterday morning…
Apple, 2 pears, a few carrots.
Next time I’ll show you my cool juicer!
