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 […]

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 […]
