Whats happenin?

Saturday,Sunday and Monday I went back to solid foods. Tuesday I am once again drinking juices and having a vegan meal for dinner such as lentil soup, brown rice, mangoes. Looks like I will be travelling to India coming Tuesday and so I will not be on the juice feast...just not practical while travelling esp with two little ones. I hope to exercise while I am there and also keep a check on my carb intake.

Day 6

My juice fast has been going well. Yesterday I had an evening meal of 2 cups of lentil soup and 2 hard boiled eggs. In the interest of full disclosure I also had two Klondike bars!! Not the best choice but ice cream is a weakness especially the kind that has a hard chocolate shell surrounding it!
What was my weight today morning right out of bed?

This fast/feast has not disappointed and I can imagine those who are on an exclusive juice feast will lose a lot more.

Day 4 and still at it

OK. So after day 1 I modified my juice feast a little. I added some lentil soup for dinner because I realized that I was not producing enough milk for my baby. Yesterday I had lentil soup again for dinner+ 2 hard boiled eggs. I think I am making sufficient milk now. Also when I remember I add some fenugreek powder to my juice.
Juicing is going well. Today morning my weight was 206.8. That is an encouraging change for me.
The only thing I buy organic are the apples. I hope to keep seeing changes.

Day 1 was successful!

It was not the easiest thing to prepare lunch and dinner for the fam and resist eating any of that. Also I am still nursing my youngest one and I was concerned the whole day whether I would be producing enough milk. I think she was ok. I will be adding some Fenugreek to my juices today to help with milk production.
I had no coffee, no tea, no solids at all!
My weight yesterday morning out of bed was:

I have a picture of the stuff I juiced for my first juice :
Mango, Cucumbers, Apple, Carrots.
Throughout the day I juiced Collards, Parsley, Cilantro, Watermelon, Cucumbers, A bag of carrots, Mangoes, 3/4 Avocado, Another apple, 1 Tomato.
This is not a walk in the park. Ofcourse I go to the bathroom a lot more frequently and I do have some mild headache today morning which I understand is expected.
I am continuing on today. How many days I go will be determined by how I feel each day. It is one day at a time.
I was inspired by the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.
