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 […]

Juice Feasting – Day 10

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

The past couple days of juice feasting have been a bit strange to say the least, so there are many different elements to this update. I’ll start with the mundane reports and go deeper from there. Juicing This week I’m going to try making my daily juice (at least 4-5 quarts) in one mega-juicing session […]

Juice Feasting – Day 8

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Today I felt great and enjoyed a very active day, playing disc golf and making juice in the morning, followed by reading and working on my website later in the day. I only slept about 5-1/2 hours last night and didn’t feel sleepy during the day, so perhaps my need for sleep is dropping a […]

Juice Feasting – Day 7

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Today I felt pretty good overall, although I was a little spacey in the middle of the day. This could have happened because I had so many sweet juices and not as many greens today. Today’s Juices pineapple, coconut water, raspberry cantaloupe Master Cleanser carrot, celery, green leaf lettuce I drank about 1.2 gallons total. […]
