Day 2 Juice Fast

So tonight's juice consists of beet, strawberries, blueberries, snow peas, and a pear (I added the pear last because it needed something to make it sweeter).  Today was so HARD. I tried so hard to not look at foodporn.

The strawberries tasted great.  This is the first time I ever ate beet before. It is okay, has a really strong flavor though.

It came out really frothy. I didn't like the froth so I disgarded it.

This is how the juicer keeps the pulp separate from the juice.

Here's the pulp. WOW, so damn pretty for pulp.

Here's a pic of the pear I said I added in later.  Having the pear really made a difference in the taste.

Here's the final snapshot of the juice. It looks extremely pink and potent, which it is~! OMGAH, this juice is super strong in flavor!!!! I'm not so used to this, but I'm getting the hang of it.

Verdict of this juice: FAIL. I didn't like it. I think it's the beet that I don't like the taste of!

Day 2 Summary

  • Breakfast: 16 oz apple, carrot, cucumbers, orange, ginger (favorite of the day)
  • Lunch: 16 oz watermelon, cucumber, lemon, some leafy greens
  • Dinner: 16 oz beet, strawberries, snow peas, blueberries, pear (least favorite, most prettiest but man so hard to drink it)
  • Water throughout the day.

How do I feel today?
Today was rough.  Any smells of food made me just want to quit this juice fast and go for some hot food. BUT, I stopped myself from cheating because I know I must make a lifestyle change with the way I eat. Going on this juice fast probably is not the healthiest way to eat, but I'm only trying this for a week.  Please God, help me make it to day 7.

How much weight did I lose so far?
Well, I'm only on day 2, but I've lost about 2 pounds so far since yesterday. WOW. Water weight probably, but heck who cares! It's 2 muthafreakin pounds!

Am I going to exercise tonight?
Yes, gonna walk some and then maybe do some easy stretches. I am sore from yesterday.

Hi I stumble upon your page researching juicing. I'm 100 lbs and I just bought a nice juicer prior to that I did alot of research. I can't believe your horrible experience however I'm hmong and I eat very healthy, no Mexican or chinese, nothing heavy or soaked in msg. I barely eat hmong food either. I don't smoke either. I eat mostly fish and seafood and lots of veggies and fruits. I have to tell you I've been juicing for 2 weeks and I love it. I get so full on 16 ounces of juicing. 3-5 times a day and I feel so energetic and good. I don't do fruits in my juicers just raw veggies, Beets etc and I love it. I work out everyday, so considering your bad experience with juicing it may have different effects on pple. Depending weight, what your eating habits are. How healthy you are. I'm juicing be cuz it really is healthier and I love veggies to the point of becoming almost a vegetarian. You never went to the Dr so most likely your not sure why your body reacted that way to juicing. Because I work out everyday I'm really not losing weight on it but building muscle tone and definition. It's too bad that was such a bad experience for you. I just think the world of juicing and looking forward to summer for all farmers market veggies. Good luck
