Juice Diet

Juice Diet

So, after a successful and relatively easy April challenge I’ve decided to kick it up a notch this time around.  I started a juice diet today, being inspired by the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead (it’s on Netflix).  Essentially, I’ll be eating only fruits and vegetables this month, with most of that coming from juicing.  All juices, all day until one meal of veggies and fruit only.  Today, as a transition day I did two meals (carrot sticks and a banana for breakfast and sweet corn on the cob and green beans for dinner) and two 16 oz. juices.  This was my favorite…

My mom and went to West Side Market today and I came back with this…

I will keep this short and write more about it tomorrow when it’s earlier and I feel better.  I admit that I don’t feel so well right now.  I’ve had a headache since this afternoon and have felt yucky all over since dinner, even a little light-headed. All things that can expected for the first few days.  Joe does allow a cup of herbal tea before bed so I’m getting ready to make that and head to bed.

This is going to be a hard challenge, and to be honest if I can make it 15 days (what Joe recommends for newbies) I’d be happy, but I really want to make it until the 27th when Disney World will be calling my name.  It’s no coincidence that I chose this one on a shortened month!
