I haven’t spent a particularly significant part of my life polluting myself if I’m honest. I don’t have a history of intense drug use or the usual classics. I can bring the party, but eat pretty clean and get on and off vitamins from time to time. Nevertheless, I’m trying a fast. The idea being that I clean out and heal up from the inside. I’ve been changing the diet, reducing animal intake and whatnot for the lead-up and now I’m on a day and a half of a juice-only fast. And I don’t mean Sunny-D. I mean like a plate of vegetables that I could never eat all of in one sitting kind of juice.
It’s a weird experience already.
I’m hungry, of course, but I can solve that by just drinking more juice. I’ve been craving food during the lead-up and now juice-only time…though I think it’s less the actual food itself and more the act of eating that I’m missing.
You can’t argue with results. My body is starting to feel more at peace, I get an energy that I haven’t in a long time, and my face is even lookig thinner already. I’m not sure how long I’ll last in my 5-10 day goal, but I got trough at least this day. Here’s to a few more.
