My 30-day Juice Cleanse

I have decided to start my juice fast tomorrow, September 7'2012. Here's what I did in preparation for this fast or we might as well call it a juice feast as I am going to be feasting on glorious sunshiny juice all day for 30 days or more if I decide to continue on to 60 days. What inspired me to do this juice fast is watching "Fat, Sick and nearly Dead" although I am healthy and a Vegan, I have had moments when I have had non-vegan foods and vegan gourmet foods. I started with adding more fresh produce into my diet and lessening the amount of cooked or processed foods.
I have totally turned my back to tofu and soy milk *sniff* although we had a lot of great times together, I am sorry to say that I don't miss you as much as I thought I would =P...

Next thing I did is I replaced my breakfast with juice, since I have never been a breakfast person this comes as a refreshing change, I used to just eat oatmeal with fruits in the morning but I felt heavy afterwards and I tend to not exercise every time I do. I do better with just a smoothie or juice in the morning. I usually wake up at 6 am and eat my breakfast by 9am.

On my 2nd week of preparation, I ate just one meal a day for lunch, a juice in the morning and a smoothie in the evenings, plus I drank more water. This was about the time I fully experienced the detox side effects, headaches, irritability and I also suffered from flu during this week after being out all night (work). But I promised myself I am doing this for my family and my health.
So tomorrow I start!!! wish me Luck and lots of discipline and self-control. I know I can do this! and I will!! I will be updating you everyday of my cleanse, if you want you can join me =)
