It was quite the chore to get everything to fit - yikes! This is just 8 days worth of produce and I don't think I could have fit anymore than that. We are planning to do the 15 day juice fast to start and then see how we feel about lengthening it. We both take allergy meds and have some digestion issues as well. We are hoping that through this fast we are able to get those allergies under control and alleviate those digestion issues. The research I have done is really promising that the ailments we suffer from don't have to be addressed with pills. It would also be great if we lost a little bit of weight along the way! We've been doing well eating mainly South Beach phase 2 foods but I think the fast will take it up a notch and shake our bodies up which is great since I am still in my DietBet - I won the last round by the way!!
We have five days of eating and juicing and then it will be 10 days of juice only after that. I'm really excited to get to day four since that is when everyone says it starts getting easier and you experience loads of energy. I can't lie though - the lack of coffee is going to be brutal those first few days!! I feel for my husband dealing with me. Luckily I've already started cutting back to one cup a day for the last week or so. I'm still not looking forward to that part.
Ok...off to finish my last glass of wine for quite some time I think!! But...wine is made from grapes so doesn't that make it a fruit? ;-)
