Juice Feasting- Day 2

by Steve Prussack

I made it through the second day of juice feasting and for the most part, felt great today.  My energy was pretty high, and was able to get a lot of work done around the house.  The weather was unusually hot today in Southern California, so we took advantage with a walk along Santa Monica Pier.  There were moments that were not so easy, especially when walking past restaurants and watching my fiance prepare food for her son.  Those are the moments that are hard right now, but I am sure they will get easier as the Feast progresses.  I have read that the first 3 days are the hardest, so I am thankful to have gotten this far (which isn’t far at all, compared to how much longer I should keep this up).

Today’s Juices

1.  Carrot/ Apple/ Swiss Chard/ Ginger
2.  The Master Cleanser (Lemon, Water, Cayenne Pepper, Agave Nectar)
3.  Honeydew (SO good)
4.  Carrot/ Apple/ Purple Kale/ Parsley
(Also 1 Quart of Coconut Water)

I drank a total of 1 gallon of juice today.

Weight Loss

I have lost 2.4 pounds already.  My starting weight was 182.4, and today I am down to 180.  I am excited to lose more weight and become more lean.

Detox Symptoms

I am surprised at how much I am detoxing already.  I had a headache all through the night while I was sleeping.  I woke with a runny nose.  Other symptoms included slight nausea here and there.  I did an enema this evening, which really helped.  I scraped my tongue several times and found a lot of mucous gathering on the tip.  Even as a type this blog post, my stomach is rumbling.  I can feel my body shifting and changing.  I am amazed that our bodies start to clean out just from consuming fresh organic raw fruit and vegetable juices.

Vivid Dreams

Last night, I had some very vivid dreams.  I have heard others have had similar experience during a juice feast.  In one dream, I was talking to the spirit of all plants.  She was showing me how difficult I was as a child at times.  She explained to me that it wasn’t my fault, and I just didn’t know better.  Also, she told me my fiance Julie could have chosen many other paths in life.  I am glad our paths led us back to each other after over 20 years apart (we were high school sweethearts and reunited 2 years ago).

I am looking forward to the rest of this journey…I am not sure how many days I can do before my body says enough…but it would be great if I could make it the whole 92 days (no promises).
