Post Juice Feasting Update

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

It’s been about 3-1/2 weeks since I ended my 30-day juice feast, so here’s an update on my health situation. Sleep and Dreams I’m back to sleeping normally again. During the juice feast I needed 8-10 hours of sleep most nights. Now I do fine on 6-7 hours. The super-vivid nighttime dreams continued for another […]

Guacamole Recipe

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Guacamole is one of my favorite foods, so I’d like to share my best guacamole recipe. I tweak this recipe every time I make it, so this is the December 2008 incarnation. I went to my first raw potluck last night and brought a large batch of this guacamole to share. I figured there would […]

In personal development terms, calibration is the process of progressively refining your thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors until you shift your equilibrium to the point where you can consistently achieve the results you desire. Just as you might calibrate a scientific instrument to provide consistently accurate measurements, you can calibrate your skills to generate consistently good […]

Juice Feasting – Postmortem

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Now that I’ve been back on solid foods for about a week, I have some final thoughts to share on my 30-day juice feast. I don’t want to rehash what I already shared in my Day 31 update, so I’ll try to offer some new insights. Back to Solids – and Eating More Fat Again […]

Juice Feasting – Day 31

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I’m feeling pretty lousy this morning. Last night I began feeling nauseous around 8pm, and I went to bed at 9:30. I woke up this morning feeling like I was getting a cold. I had a runny nose, a mild headache, some fatigue, and I was sneezing a bit. I slept about 9 hours last […]

Juice Feasting – Day 26

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

The past couple days have been interesting to say the least. After my spa day on Monday, I felt more relaxed, but I still felt pretty aggressive. I woke up Tuesday morning feeling hostile and belligerent. Later in the day, the anger went away, and I was left with this incredible feeling of power and […]

Juice Feasting – Day 24

Monday, November 17th, 2008

Last night I went through some pretty severe emotional detox. I started feeling incredibly angry, and I had to warn my family to steer clear of me. I wished I was still training in martial arts just so I could pummel something. I listened to a Paraliminal before bed, and that helped — it relaxed […]

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 […]
