I’ve managed to make it till day 4! And yes, today has been a real struggle. I felt so bad during the day, I felt light headed and sick. Around noon, before work, I got a terrible headache as decided to eat something. So that’s what I did. I ate, and I slept. When I woke up I wasn’t feeling like shit anymore.
So what did I learn?
I can’t go without solid food on hard,busy days. I need some food, even if it’s just a small salad.
I’m still finishing it, but I’m not gonna fast anymore. It’ll be more like an interment fast. I’ll drink juice till around dinner and then I eat one meal. And I want it to be a light meal, so nothing cooked.
Do I experience benefits?
Yes! I wasn’t sleepy at all. I did slept some during the day but that was due to my body, not because I was feeling tired. I also feel concentrated all the time. And my belly isn’t that bloated anymore.
I’m looking to find out what tomorrow will bring. Will I feel better now I survived day 4? I’m going to the gym tomorrow, so let’s find out how that will be.
I have done 2 days of fasting (and cheating a bit with fruits) and I’m on day ! If you want to see what I drank on day 1, click here. I will be filming it all, just to show you how I’ve been doing and to show you the juices I drink. I also made a video of my second day. Feel free to watch, comment or whatever. I’ll be happy to read them. 🙂
How am I feeling?
Pretty good. I’m not that tired anymore. Actually I feel like I’ve been getting more energy. My sore throat is gone, and my headache too. You could say I’m getting the hang of it. I want to do at least 2 more days, but I’ll be eating a bit more. So it’s strictly seen not a juice fast anymore.
Today I have a movie date with a friend, I haven’t seen her in a while. We arranged to eat in a restaurant next to the cinema and I don’t want to cancel it. So I called the restaurant and asked if they could prepare me a green salad without dressing and stuff. They are willing to do that. So that’s what I’ll be eating today.
I now drink 3 Brandstof juices a day, and make 1L smoothie or juice myself. I also drink a lot of tea. I haven’t worked out the last 4 days because I was feeling so bad. Maybe tomorrow I will give it a go. I made a video about today. It gives a good view on what I drink.
Tomorrow is gonna be challenging. I have to go to my internship first for 4 hours, and then in the evening I have to work. Like some who may read this for a longer period, I work as a waitress. So I walk a lot and make long shifts. I think I’ll be eating some salad before work,because I’m afraid it might be to heavy without.
Nevertheless, I’ll keep you updated! I will be making posts and videos. I also have an Instagram account and that is; @rawjazzie.
I would love to follow you guys!!
Already day 2. I survived day 1, it went pretty well. Did had a light headache bit that’s also due to the cold I had to face outside. It was freezing and I wasn’t wearing a hat. My fault. I also made a video about yesterday, it’s here. I tell about the juices and drink one in the bus.
About today. Was I excited this morning?
Was I feeing fit today?
Will I continue this fast?
But I wasn’t feeling that good. I was hungry all day. At the end of the afternoon I are one apple. I just had to. I’m not feeling guilty. I also baked cookies out of the leftover pulp from my juices. If I feel like I need to eat, I can eat that. At least it’s healthy. This is the video about today.
A lot of people told me today that I looked pale. I wasn’t wearing make up, but maybe it’s because of the detox. I felt tired and I wasn’t that happy. I think it’s also because I wanted to eat the sushi my mum got. I’m still determined to continue. Let’s see what tomorrow will bring me!
I wanted to be more prepared and healthier this year. I’ve been sick for a few weeks. I had trouble with my digestion, headaches, and pain in my belly. Last week I also got a sore throat and I decided I really had to do something about it. I thought I had two options;
1. Go to banana island.
2. Do a juice fast.
I decided to go with option 2. So I’m juice fasting now!
I have my own juices but I also ordered some from a Dutch company, called “Brandstof Amsterdam”. On their site they said this;
We make organic juices, made with seasonal fruits and vegetables. We freeze the juices in, so the vitamins are kept inside.
I thought I should give it a go. The (new) job I have, works with them. That way I could get some for a special prize. I ordered some beetroot/fennel and some mango/orange.
I will also be filming about my juice fast. Be sure to check my channel, would love to hear from you.
This is the link. In this video I tell all about the juices I’ll be drinking and more. I’ll keep you updated.
I’m also a bit curious (when am I not curious?) are there people here who did a juice fast? For how long? How did you feel afterwards? Thanks.
