After watching Sick, Fat, and Nearly Dead on Netflix I became inspired to do a juice fast. Not for as long as the guy did (60 days), but just for ten. My primary goal isn’t for weight loss like in the documentary, but just for a much needed cleanse. (Although if I lose a pound or two I won’t be mad)
The goal is for 10 whole days I drink nothing but pure fruit/vegetable juice four times a day. The only exception is water.
Today marks day 1.
I went to a whole foods grocery and bought the following (carrots, romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, kale, cabbage, swiss chard, celery, and apples.) All for less than 25 dollars! The lady at the cash register looked at me like I was crazy. I told her:
Me: “I’m doing a juice fast.”
Register chick: “Why??”
Me: “To be healthier”
Register chick: “But…you’re already skinny.”
Like her I don’t think some people will get it and that’s okay. My grandmother already tried to encourage me to break my fast by cooking my favorite meals. It’s tempting because the juices do not taste that great. Not bad but not great either. I was even tempted to put some ranch in it because it tastes like liquid salad but I reminded myself I unintentionally became a vegan during this journey.
Though I’m starving and crave everything under the sun, I refuse to give in. At least not on the first day. :)
