So I watched the documentary – Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead – the other night. If you have never watched it, I highly recommend it. It is so interesting! Not to mention, inspiring. So inspiring, in fact, that I woke up at 5am this morning and started my juicing! My parents have had a juicer for years and we used to use it quite a bit…until we didn’t. You know how that goes – the American way. At the time it was a “must have” and a few months later it collected dust..for years.
This morning I dusted it off, cleaned it, re-assembled, and STARTED JUICING! My first juice consisted of Kale, Apple, Carrot. What a great morning treat!
Then 10:30 came around and I was feeling hungry again so I juiced Kale, Apple, Pear, Beets, Carrots. Also delicious!
I was feeling great! and then…. I wasn’t. In the documentary, Joe takes the first few days and sleeps and has mood swings. The lady that does it says she is in a fog in the first day. So that “fog” hit me around 11:30. It’s hard to explain. I couldn’t quite focus and I was SO tired. I took a 2 hour nap. So I would advise that, if you choose to do a juice fast – start it on a weekend or a day you really can just hang out at home. I didn’t realize it would take so much out of me.
To tell you the truth, I did not plan to do a juice fast. It just kind of happened because I felt like it would be an experience.
Initially, I was just starting a no sweets for 60 days and switching all my food to organics. I will be putting up a youtube channel soon and I made a video talking about that. I went to the normal grocery store today because I was running out of things to juice – and let me tell you – their organics section is laughable. I actually felt a little mad (maybe that was the juice fast mood swing). I managed to get apples and carrots, but they didn’t have kale or spinach! Seriously, get on board mainstream grocery store! I felt so skeptical about the place after that and grabbed my organics and went!
I shall update more tomorrow!
