After work tomorrow, going to pick up the goods, and Thursday is going to be my first day. I am going to go little by little and see where I get. Sunday will be day four, and I am going to see how I feel then. Hopefully ready to keep going.
Good luck, Buck. What juicer did you go with?
Just a Hamilton Beach one, had a good sale at Menard's on one so I took it. Read a bunch of reviews on Amazon for it that were good, figured it was worth a shot
You gonna be hungry.
Yeah, that's what I am worried about. But hopefully water will help keep that at bay
A lot of those guys in the thread I linked said the hunger went away after the first couple days, but that wasn't the case with me. It wasn't terrible, but I was pretty damn hungry all the time. Hopefully it will be a little better for you. You'll be amazed by your energy level.
Yeah I have heard so many people say that about the energy and just about how great they feel in general. I don't think the hunger will be that big of an issue. On a normal day I don't eat a whole lot anyways, so I think if I keep a good schedule for the juicing, I should be fine
I don't know how much you've read up on it, but most "experts" say that you lose a lot of the nutrients in it if you don't drink it within 15 minutes of juicing it. Just an FYI if you're thinking about taking it with you to work or something. I'm sure it still has some value, though.
Yeah I have read that. I figure I could still take some to work, and maybe have some right when I get home or something. I believe I read that you should have around 64 oz of juice a day...maybe I am misremembering that number, anyways, I figure if I do that, I could have some when I get home, and then some later on.
Damned coincidence. I'm giving the 4 day juice fast another go, and I'm finishing up day 1. Much better results for me this time.
Good luck Buck.
I think you'll be fine if you make your lunch juice in the morning before work. I think the dude in the Shaggy thread that went 60 days started doing it that way. Which reminds me, I'm only about 8 pages into that...need to finish it.
The will is not here, the will is at my office next to the hot plate with the frayed wires.
What are your favorite recipes
You schedule your vag cleaning as well?
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
whenever you're ready to help
Just bought new gloves baby
For real though good luck, I can't imagine it will be easy
I don't really have any recipes, just certain things I try to use and others I try to avoid. Also keep in mind I'm blending, not juicing, so not all of this may work for you.
I put two leaves of kale or a handful of baby spinach in every smoothie. Spinach has no flavor impact, but kale is bitter. When I use kale, I typically add a 1/2 lime and a 3-4" stick of cucumber.
For fruit, I try use strawberries or a dark berry mix as they are pretty low in sugar. Sometimes I use both. I try to avoid high sugar fruits like apples, bananas, pineapple, cherries.
I usually throw in a carrot and a stalk of celery or two.
I occasionally add something pretty overpowering, like bell pepper, onion or garlic. When I do that, I add half a banana and a sprinkle of dill. That usually offsets the taste pretty well.
I tried beets a couple weeks ago, and it just wasn't for me. peeled them and used 1/2 beet per juice, but it changed the texture of the smoothie, the taste was overpowering and difficult to cover up.
When you get started, let me know if you try a recipe you really like. I need to try some recipes instead of just throwing a bunch of crap in there every time.
I have a couple sites I saved at work that have recipes that I am going to try, I'll link them tomorrow
Here are the two sites I found
Stopped at the store tonight, got apples, pears, kale, spinach, cabbage, cucumbers, celery, ginger, and carrots.
Hopefully whatever I decide to go with in the morning doesn't taste like
Sorry I'm not informed on this diet. What is it supposed to do for you, lose weight, clean you out, make you feel better, or what?
And how long do you have to do it?
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
To the first question, some of all of the above. Basically, most food people eat is processed and really isn't good for people. By doing this, you are taking in all the nutrients from veggies and fruits that are great for the body. It cleans out the system, will help lose weight, and makes a person feel much better when they are getting the nutrients they need.
The length of time is up to the person. It can also just be added as supplement to other meals.
I've seen the "mean green" and "green lemonade" recipes several times and they seem to be pretty popular.
Let me know how you like the ginger. I've read a little goes a long ways and I've been a little scared to try it. Although it can't be any stronger than garlic, can it?
Kind of what I was wondering, I have never had it, but we'll see
Thanks. I am curious. My diet is probably not the norm. We grow and preserve a lot of our veggies and fruit. The easy ones. Strawberries. raspberries, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and others.
Tonight we are having venison with some of that. Not bragging. It's just the way it is. I prefer elk over venison. And beef is ok with me.
I have a feeling you are not liking this so far
I've been on several juice diets over the years. Never lost a pound, but I felt pretty dang good while I was on it. Of course the fact that I was adding vodka to the juice may have had something to do with that.
