Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

I actually ended up cutting it short at 3 days due to some family issues but thatís part of what I love about fasting; it fits around my life instead of my life having to fit around fasting. Iím doing 24 hours at a time right now and it really helps with a lot of symptoms.

Curious- in my research, I found it is important to re-introduce solid foods gradually after a fast over a couple days. When unscheduled life happens, how do you transition back so quickly?

Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

Feels strange drinking a smoothie this AM! Much more filling than 'normal'.

Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

For me anything under about 4-5 days doesnít cause a problem just eating again as long as what Iím eating isnít grain, refined sugar, or alcohol. When I go longer than that, I start with a light broth and give my system time to adjust but itís usually shorter fasts for me.

Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

Now heading into my 3rd week of juice fasting (or maybe considered juice "feasting" since I've added smoothies?). Still feeling really good. I think I'll do it next week and then I'll have done a full month I really thought a week would be hard, can't believe I'm on track to a month and it was easy!
