Juice Fast Day 2

Today is day 2 of the juice fast programme I am doing.  I am following Joe Cross’ Reboot and having a go at the 3 day juice fast.  You can read more about it here.  Some of you may have seen the programme he made called ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead’.  It is very inspiring and worth a look.  I don’t plan to juice fast for 2 months as Joe did but I did want to get the weight loss off to a good start.

I began the day with hot water with lemon juice in it before getting out the juicer.  The first juice of the day has 2 apples, 3 carrots and ginger.apples, carrots and gingerThis is the pulp.
orange worms I always add ice as it makes them easier to drink (I think it does).orange juice in jug This one is very easy to drink and quite enjoyable.orange juice 2-1-14Mid morning I had a glass of coconut water and then a herbal tea.

Juice number 2 was made with a cucumber, kale, spinach, a pear, celery and a lemon.green juice veggiesGreen and frothy.

I don’t feel hungry but I do feel very tired which I suspect is partly due to giving up caffeine in tea and coffee and also due to the cold I am battling.  If I wasn’t having to make a certain little person meals, I would find this juice fast quite easy.  It may be harder if I was working but I plan to be on food again before heading back to London next week.

I am feeling quite pleased with myself for sticking to this fast.  2 days done, 1 to go.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
