Juice Feasting- Day 13

by Steve Prussack

Today met with a busy schedule which made the cleanse more challenging.  While my energy was good throughout the day, I did have some cravings out of nowhere.  The idea of eating again was starting to seem very appealing to me.  While I didn’t succumb to any temptations, the thoughts were more strong than usual.  I came up with a decision on how long I would like to do the Juice Feast.  I will talk more about that in today’s post.  But first….

Juices of the Day

1.  Celery/ Spinach/ Kale/ Cucumber
2.  Pineapple/ Grape/ Ginger
3.  Honeydew
4.  Cilantro/ Celery/ Apple/ Carrot

I drank 1 Gallon of Juice today.  After speaking to my friend Dr. Jameth Sheridan, I decided to add another supplement to my Vitamineral Green.  Dr. Jameth recommended I add Vitamineral Earth as a tea.  After drinking it, I could sense how powerful this product is for detoxification and balance.  I haven’t had a reaction yet, I drank it only an hour ago.

Weight Loss

I remain at 173 lbs today, for a total weight loss of 9 lbs since beginning the Juice Feast.   (starting weight was 182.4).

Got Energy?

I had great energy throughout the day today.  I decided to go to the gym for some light weight training.  I brought along a bottle of Vitamineral Green to drink in between sets, and this worked out really well.  I am going to keep exercising everyday now.  I think it will help me to calm some of the excess energy I have (plus it’s great to get in the habit).  I was working out inconsistently before the Juice Feast, but am not committed to make it a daily part of my routine.  My exercises include rebounding for cardiovascular and lifting weights.  When the weather is warmer, I include bike riding and roller blading.

In other news, I officially announced that my company is putting together a Raw Food World Summit called “Rawpalooza”, which will launch in mid-January.  While I haven’t announced the line up yet, stay tuned…we have a list of close to 50 raw food/ conscious living World-Class leaders and experts signed up for the event.  This will take place online, virtually, so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your home.  Stay in touch for more details.

 

 

OK, so I decided today I am going to Juice Cleanse for a total of 30 days.  While the protocol recommends 92 days, this modified version just feels right for me.  I may change my mind at some point and decide to go longer, but this is how I am feeling today.  First, I feel disconnected from bonding with my family during meals.  Second, I am going to make Juice Feasting a big part of my life (meaning I will do this a few times a year).  Third, this is getting expensive.  I am buying top-quality organic produce at a variety of health food stores and it really starts to add up.  Again, I may change my mind.  David Rain has a criteria list for ending a Juice Feast and I am not sure I am meeting them at this point.  With the cravings today, the idea of eating food sounds so good.  I’ll confirm this decision next week, just to make sure this decision is not based on the idea that I would love to bite into an Avocado Boat.

(Note:  Avocado boats are an invention of mine.  You cut an avocado in half…take out the pit.  Sprinkle Celtic Sea Salt, Cayenne Pepper, and Nutritional Yeast on each side—-Enjoy! Kids love it too).

Thanks for sticking around…more fun tomorrow.
