Juice Feasting Diary - Ended

I was feeling really good on the juicing, but I just couldn't put down the 1 - 1.5 gallon a day that is recommended by the experts. The most I ever got down was about 3 quarts. I could feel the belly fat decreasing and the cravings were also decreasing. For the ultimate juice feast one juices for 92 days. . . Now I don't know that I could ever do that, but I was thinking that I might juice to the end of May. . . then along came the first clear, warm day in weeks, and I decided I wanted to go for a jog. I made it around the 2 mile circle without passing out. However, the rest of the day I was wiped out!

Conclusion, maybe one should not go for the first jog in over a month when only drinking juice, especially when they're not taking in enough calories (ie: the 1 - 1.5 gallons). I had a decision to make. . . Do I want to continue juicing and not exercise or do I want to finally get out and jog? I opted for the jogging. I wish I wasn't such a fair weather jogger, but I am and now that it's finally getting warm. . . I want to RUN! So I finished my juicing in favor of jogging.

I will juice again. . . Maybe not this summer, but I definitely know that I will do it again especially when I need to reboot when my eating habits have gotten a bit out of control. I know that I can do it! and it was not that hard.

  1. Way to go! I FINALLY started juicing yesterday and I'm hoping it will replace my need for green smoothies. I think I need some juice right now.
