Juice Fast Diary – Day 4

Snowy Pine Tree

Had a great day! Relaxing, family is here visiting and good phone calls from family in Mexico, California, and Tennesee!

Oh yeah! this is supposed to be about the juice fast  . . . let’s see,

Mood: Great – really enjoyed the beautiful drive to church this morning through the snow-covered country landscape with the sunshine reflecting off every surface like  a million diamonds in the crisp, 6°F. morning.

Hunger: Not an issue. Potluck lunch at church did have some incredibly pleasant aromas, though. Everyone that tried it really liked the leftover vegetables from the organic vegetable broth that I made for the fast. I took them, cut some of the pieces a little smaller and covered it all in a cashew cream sauce and baked it all together.

Exercise: Just walking around church and the house today. Supposed to be a rest day anyway, right?

Weight: same as yesterday.

Observations: Marked decrease in hot flashes since I started the fast. I hadn’t expected that but it’s nice. Learned a few new things after consulting with some experts in the field of longer juice fasts – There is not a problem with losing lean body mass with this program. I will post more info when the documentation gets to me. Calorie intake is on the high side, not the low side. I will be taking some coconut oil in my broth every third day to make sure I can absorb all the wonderful fat-soluble vitamins in the juices. I welcome your comments and suggestions. Hope your week is starting out great!

  1. Greetings,

    I applaud you for doing a juice fast — I know from experience it takes a lot of determination and self discipline. I also like how you have organized your post with subheadings like “Mood”, “Observations”, etc. It really makes the information easier to find and digest.
