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.This is the pulp.
I always add ice as it makes them easier to drink (I think it does). This one is very easy to drink and quite enjoyable.Mid 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 and frothy.
Quite palatable. Juice 3 which was also juice 4 as I made enough for 2 juices was made with oranges, celery, carrots, basil, lemon and purple kale. It came out a dark purple colour with a frothy green top. This one definitely needed ice to get it down!I am meant to have another juice but to be honest I can’t be bothered to make it so will have a glass of water and a herbal tea instead.
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.
