Juice Fast Day 3 and Fish

I was a bit disappointed to not wake up feeling energised.  So I checked back to the previous time I did this fast (you can see the post here) and I felt the same.  I don’t know if I would feel better if I persevered with the juice fast for longer but my intention was to just juice fast for 3 days.  This is definitely my last day.  I decided mid morning that I wanted to eat some quality nutritious food so I went and bought some fish to have for supper.

Before then though, I stuck to the juice fast.  I started the day with hot water and lemon.

green stuff and fruit I packed it in to 2 containers and took it to Lucy’s where I was having lunch with Michelle.  I would have enjoyed Lucy’s nutritious lunch but declined and instead drank half my juice.  I just did not fancy the other half so it is in the fridge.2 juice jarsAfter nearly 3 days juicing I was looking forward to eating some real food.  I enjoyed this dinner very much.  I oven roasted some carrots and butternut squash.  When that was nearly cooked, I gently fried Salmon and Sea Bass in coconut oil and Pak Choi, spinach and purple kale, also in coconut oil.  It tasted really good.Sea Bass, salmon and veggiesI am pleased I managed a juice fast to kick start this year’s healthy eating but I do not intend to do it again anytime soon.  My focus now will be to eat lean meat, fish and vegetables.  I will also eat nuts, seeds, beans, lentils and small amounts of fruit.  No sugar at all. No alcohol, dairy or wheat for January.

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 :-)
