Juice Feasting – Day 23

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

Physically I’m feeling fine, but my will to continue juice feasting has been weakening a lot. My heart isn’t in it as much as it once was. Weight Loss I weighed 170.4 this morning for a net loss of 8.6 pounds in 22 days. I’m now wearing my belt one notch tighter. Feeling Unmotivated Aside […]

Juice Feasting – Day 21

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Great day today — I’m so glad that yesterday’s headache is gone. I did an hour-long radio interview about my book this morning which was a lot of fun. I had some emotional detox this afternoon, mainly some mild depression, but it only lasted a couple of hours. Presently I’m feeling fantastic. Weight Loss I […]

Juice Feasting – Day 20

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Today was okay aside from a throbbing headache I had since waking up this morning. It’s not so bad when I remain still, but it hurts a lot when I get up and move around. I’m not taking any medication since that would defeat the purpose of getting the pharmaceutical residues out instead of taking […]

Fanatical About Growth

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Some recurring feedback I’ve received about my juice feast goes like this: Steve, you’re encountering lots of obstacles on this juice feast such as food cravings, feeling sick, and emotional yo-yoing. Ergo, this is clearly the wrong path, and you should quit. I hear similar feedback whenever I conduct public experiments. It makes no difference […]

Juice Feasting – Day 18

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Today was another fine day. I felt great mentally and physically all day long. After not feeling so good for a day, last night my appetite came back with a vengeance. I drank a quart of veggie juice and quickly followed it up with another quart of coconut water (the water from two young coconuts). […]

Juice Feasting – Day 17

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Every time I think I’m past the detox hump, I seem to get humped again. The past 24 hours have been rough. After drinking 1.5 quarts of watermelon-cantaloupe-blackberry-raspberry juice yesterday, I took the kids out for a few hours at the Lied Discovery Children’s Museum near downtown Vegas. While we were out, I started to […]

Juice Feasting – Day 14

Friday, November 7th, 2008

Today was another great day. The daily routine of living on juice is gradually becoming a habit, so I don’t have to think about it so much anymore. Emotional Detox I still had some mild emotional detox today. Unexpected feelings would surface and then subside after an hour or so. For example, I started feeling […]

Juice Feasting – Day 13

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

I had a bit of a rough patch there the past few days, but I’m feeling much better today. In fact, I’ve been feeling terrific all day — physically, mentally, and emotionally — with just a touch of emotional detox this evening. It’s nice to be back to my usual happy and energetic self again. […]

Juice Feasting – Day 12

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Today I had to deal with some difficult physical problems with my juice feast, making this an even worse day than yesterday. The last time I had a day like today was when I had food poisoning. Heartburn, Indigestion, Acid Reflux… Oh My! I began the day as usual with a quart of water with […]

Juice Feasting – Day 11

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

This was the toughest day so far since I began juice feasting. I woke up feeling very drained, unmotivated, and lazy. It was hard to get going in the morning. I really didn’t want to do anything except stay in bed. I had to drag myself to the kitchen to make my first batch of […]
