Day 2

I made it through my first day of juice fasting! The hunger was actually not terrible yesterday. My boss was eating some Del Taco, and I swear it smelled like dog food. I did get this funky lightheaded buzz in the afternoon that was actually sorta cool. And I stopped at Wild Oats after work to get some nut milk (almond and hazelnut), some fasting tea to curb appetite, and some No-chicken broth. I think this will be much better than, say, the cabbage soup diet for variety.

On the menu today:

Breakfast and snack - watermelon pomegranate
Lunch - carrot pear
Dinner - tomato, bell pepper, and asparagus

I also forgot to mention the nasty part of the diet. You're not consuming solids, hence neither are you excreting solid waste. But there's still crud up in there that needs flushed - so you have to give yourself enemas. I get to deal with that this evening. Yipee.

But guess what? It's only been a day, and I'm down 5 pounds!!!

Wow, five pounds. Good going. I'm positive I would have killed someone by now if I was doing it.

Thanks chel. Pretty sure I haven't killed anyone yet. ;)

Hey, maybe the buzz'll keep you addicted?

Prophet - sadly, the buzz seems to have gone away. Luckily, my hunger has diminished as well.
