7 Day Juice Fast


I started a 7 day juice fast today that I think will only last for about 3 days at this rate...Have any of you ever done a juice fast? IT"S AWFUL!! My mom tried to get pregnant for 3 years when I finally came along. She said that she did a 7 day juice fast and found out about 5 weeks later she was pregnant. Sooooo....my mom called me last week wanting me to try it. It's a lot of work though to get fresh fruits and veggies everyday, juice them, and clean the juicer like three times a day when I'm working full time. My mom said she will do all the work if I just drink them. The hard part is eating absolutley NO FOOD! I'm SO HUNGRY right now! I started today and it's NASTY! My mom only had the ingredients for a spinach drink...mmmm. But...I will do my best to stick to it. I tried this a few years back and only got to day 3 before I felt like passing out. We will see how long this one lasts...I am just hoping it will clean my system of all the toxic drugs I took to try to get pregnant...Well, if anyone has any yummy recipes for veggie drinks I would appreciate them. Bottoms Up!

Sorry I dont have any recipes for you. But hey, see if you can do it at least 4 days this time. Then, it will be an accomplishment. You did it 1 more day than last time! You can do it!!

I did this before too. I have to say day 1 was definitely the hardest. I only did a 3 day juice fast though, so I don't know about the full 7 days. It's worth a shot though. :) Cucumber-Watermelon is good and so is apple in anything and carrot in almost anything. Just a handful of greens and you hardly notice 'em. ;) What kinda' juicer are you guys using? Good luck!

Good luck Brittany! How are you doing today? I sure hope it helps flush everything out for you. My mom was big on juicing too. Come to think of it I have her juicer but it isn't used as much as it should be.. Maybe you just propelled me to start! lol

Stay strong you can do it!
