Hey everyone! So today marked 3 days that my husband and I have been on our juice fast. To be honest I cannot believe I have had nothing to eat, nothing to chew on, crunch on, nadda just strictly juice. When I say juice I’m not talking juice from a carton from the store I’m talking using a juicer and putting multiple different types of veggies and fruits to get the juice.
After watching Fat Sick and Nearly Dead about Joe Cross my husband and I decided to embark on this adventure.
I have to say this has been pretty intense! Can’t eat anything! The effects so far have been for my husband and I:
- Headaches! This has been our complaint since day 2- I’m assuming that it is part of a caffeine withdrawal. Some of you may know how bad that feels.
- Naseau and close to vomiting! On day 2 it was really bad for me.
- Fatigue and Blahness!- Day 2 again, was really rough! My husband still feels out of it but I have found myself with a little extra energy today day 3.
- Diarrhea/Constipation- I’ve been going a lot and my hubby can’t go. Go figure! Sorry I know TMI but it’s all part of this experience.
I have to admit I feel pretty full drinking the juice. I have 16oz of juice 3 times a day. I’m not even sure if that is enough but I do not feel hungry in between those times. I do drink a couple of glasses a water each day as well. Something that has been a pain in the butt is having to clean the fruits and veggies and clean the juicer 3 times a day! So far it has been pretty time-consuming but I know it will be worth it.
Since my husband has diabetes we’ve been checking his blood sugars multiple times a day to make sure it’s not getting too low. My husbands numbers are crazy and he has had doctors call him after blood work wondering how he is still alive. His numbers normally range from 280 all the way up the 400’s no joke! Now that he’s been doing this his numbers have ranged from 88 to 120. I think that is pretty awesome!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you come back and check out our Day 7 in a few days. =)
