Breaking the Power Juice Feast

Breaking the Power Juice Feast

by Steven Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

I broke my 23 day Power Juice Feast today! It was an amazing journey and I accomplished my goals. I am going to share my before/ after picture on this post. I will share my thoughts, what worked, what didn’t, what I will do next time…and my current transition to raw food. I hope this blog continues to inspire others who are moving towards a more healthy lifestyle.

The Break

I broke the cleanse with one large organic mango, and it was incredible! It tasted amazing and felt good to chew again. The rest of the day consisted of a snack of one apple, an organic mixed greens salad, and an organic kale salad. After my lunch salad, I immediately felt horrible. My energy (that has been incredible the majority of the cleanse) dropped significantly. I became so tired, I actually had to lie down for a nap during the afternoon. I didn’t make it to the gym, and just felt lethargic. My stomach has shrunk significantly, as expected, and it was surprising how little food I needed to feel satisfied. It was a difficult transition back to eating raw foods. I should have gone much lighter, so

Power Juice Feast- Day 23

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

Today is my last on the Power Juice Feast! I just have one more set of HealthForce Nutritional Healing Herbs to take, and when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll be ending this journey. I look forward to sharing with you the changes, and there have been a lot. Additionally, I will post my before/ after picture tomorrow so you can see how dramatic my transformation has been in just 23 days. I am feeling complete with the idea of ending the cleanse. This was a great detox, and I got a lot out of my body (including a whole waist size and 12 pounds of fat!). I will blog the next few days to keep you posted on my transition to a 100% raw vegan diet.

Here were my:

Juices of the Day

1. Apple/ Purple Kale/ Cilantro/ Aloe Vera
2. Pineapple/ Ginger/ Red Grape
3. Celery/ Cucumber/ Cilantro/ Spinach/ Aloe Vera

I drank 3 quarts of Juice today. I followed the protocol for HealthForce’s Healing Cleanse Level 3 (advanced

Power Juice Feast- Day 21

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

Another day of deep, intense cleansing and amazing on every level. My body has been letting go of some deep-rooted toxic waste, and it is stirring up all kinds of emotions. This leads to an increase in sensitivity, but on another level, improved perception. I feel I can see through people, and really align myself with people I resonate with…this is a great power to have, and one I think I am possessing because of my level of clarity. I made a short video today, which I hope to post over the weekend.

My friend Brother Echo launched the first Raw Vegan Organic Food Truck, I went to check them out, as you’ll see it in the video this weekend. He and his partner Andrew have manifested an incredible service, and I will support them as much as I can. Their website is http://www.opensourceorganics.com and I am 100% behind these guys and their mission.

Juices of the Day

1. Celery/ Cucumber/ Spinach/ Cilantrore i

Power Juice Feast- Day 20

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

I had a change of heart and decided to continue blogging my journey. I received some feedback from friends on Facebook who are interested in hearing more, so I will continue. Today was incredible because I went for a colon hydrotherapy session. This was an amazing experience and it has been a long time since I’ve done one. Many doctors are now embracing colonic irrigation as an adjunct to their traditional medical treatments, or as part an overall regimen of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) designed to cleanse and detoxify the patient’s colon, liver, kidney and lymphatic systems. The results were unbelievable, especially since I haven’t eaten solid food in 20 days. I will explain more later.

Juices of the Day

1. Celery/ Cucumber/ Spinach/ Cilantro/ Red Bell Pepper
2. Pineapple/ Red Grapes/ Ginger/ Coconut
3. Aloe Vera/ Carrot/ Apple/ Kale/ Ginger

I drank 3 quarts of Juice today. I followed the protocol

Power Juice Fast- Day 19

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

I didn’t experience any detox or cleansing symptoms today. My energy was high throughout the day, and I felt great. I was able to complete my work schedule without difficulty, but had less time to make my juices.

Therefore, I cut back on one quart of juice today. I don’t think it made much of difference, because I drank a lot of water instead. I have been reading a lot lately about the benefits of water fasting. I have never tried a prolonged water fast, but might aspire to that at some point in 2012.

Juices of the Day

1. Carrot/ Apple/ Beet/ Ginger
2. Pineapple/ Red Grapes/ Ginger/ Coconut
3. Beet/ Kale/ Celery/ Carrot

I drank 3 quarts of Juice today. I followed the protocol for HealthForce’s Healing Cleanse Level 2, since I had such a hard time detoxing all through last evening (I have too much work to do during the day to keep running to the restroom).

Power Juice Feast- Day 18

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

Today was by far the most intense day of deep cleansing on this journey so far. So many incredible things have been happening inside my body and it is has been difficult. Surprisingly, my energy was great. I was able to put in a full work day, go to the gym, and do some chores around the house. There was one major detox reaction, unlike anything I have ever experienced in my life!

I was suddenly having difficult swallowing. It felt like there was something in my throat. The sensation was like sawdust. I drank water, trying to get down whatever was irritating me When I finished, I noticed a large sore in the back of my mouth, just before my esophagus. My tongue kept moving to feel it. It sort of felt like one of those canker or cold sores you might get on your lip (only bigger). It was extremely uncomfortable and unexpected. Within a few minutes, I had another deep cleansing reaction and my body let go of some serious toxins. Right after this, the sore in my mouth was completely gone! This was really strange. I am not sure what was released here, but it must’ve been something deep within my body. Some toxins I was holding on to for a long time. I am shocked at how much body let go

Power Juice Feast- Day 17

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

Today was my 17th day consuming fresh organic raw vegetable and fruit juice. It was my first day incorporating HealthForce’s Healing Cleanse (Level 2/ 3 combo) into the program. The HealthForce Cleanse lasts 7 days, at which time I will end this healing journey (until my next one). I have lost 10 pounds so far, and we’ll see how I am doing at the end of this week. The idea of adding the HealthForce supplements was great, as I am feeling my body go deeper into healing. I had a busy day at work, but was able to complete my workload with mild difficulty. There were times I really felt I needed a break to just relax, but my schedule did not permit. Here’s what I drank:

Juices of the Day

1. Cucumber/ Celery/ Spinach/ Cilantro
2. Pineapple/ Red Grapes/ Ginger/ Coconut Water
3. Apple/ Carrot/ Pear
4. Celery/ Cucumber/ Lettuce/ Mint/ Zucchini

I drank 1 Gallon of Juice today. I followed the protoco for day one of HealthForce’s Healing Cleanse Level 2 with elements of Level 3 as well (Added Internal Parasite Formula and ZeoForce).

Power Juice Feast- Day 16

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

I actually missed a day of blogging yesterday from being super tired, but I have so much great information to share today! I had a difficult time yesterday and part of today with the re-emergence of cravings. Maybe this is happening because the holidays are coming, and I walk the streets of LA watching people snack on food. The restaurants pump the smells of some of my favorite comfort foods from back in the day of my SAD diet addictions. Whatever the case, I really thought I might break the cleanse today. I overcame the urge, but came up with a good direction so I can really go deeper with this cleanse. I’ll tell you more about that later. In the meantime, here are the:

Juices of the Day

1. Cucumber/ Celery/ Dandelion Greens/ Parsley/ Cilantro (I will never mix Parsley and Cilantro again. This was tough to get down! Too strong!)
2. Pineapple/ Red Grapes/ Ginger
3. Carrot/ Apple/ Celery
4. Celery/ Spinach/ Kale/ Cucumber

I drank 1 Gallon of Juice today.

Juice Feasting- Day 14

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

Every day is different on the Juice Feast, and this one had its ups and downs. While most of the day was met with euphoria and energy unlike before, the evening was some of the most severe detoxing since I began this program. It was extremely difficult and my stomach is still in pain. I wonder what is being stirred up and released. It takes a lot of energy to have this level of deep cleansing and I am completely exhausted. Here were the juices…

Juices of the Day

1. Cucumber/ Celery/ Parsley/ Kale
2. Pineapple/ Strawberry/ Ginger
3. Honeydew
4. Celery/ Spinach/ Kale/ Cucumber
Snack: 16 ounces of Raw Lemonade (Lemon, Water, Agave Nectar, Ginger)
Vitamineral Green Drink from HealthForce Nutritionals

I drank 1 Gallon of Juice today.

I experienced a high state of euphoria for the majority of the day. The cravings from yesterday were
