Day 1- Disaster
I was doing well having my juices all day and 12 pm hit. Oh, boy, was I hungry. I started to get headaches, shaky and cold! We had our first rains in Silicon Valley so I'll I kept craving was my organic Butternut Squash soup and cup of herbal tea. I had the tea and a raw revolution bar. Yes, I ate. BEING HONEST! I'm a working mom who commutes so I think I need to drink more juice or an all-fruit smoothie. The program I'm on said it's OK to warm the vegetable juice but not over 118 degrees. I'm going to try that for day 2.
I only drank one type of juice on Day 1 or mono-juiced. It's hard to create different juices when you have to cart it on your commute and store it under you desk at work in a cooler. I work in the public sector so we have limited refrigeration access at work. I'm considering buying a fridge for under my desk. Our fridge at work is growing fuzz, while organic it's not fit for consumption- although it might eat my juice if I leave it in there.
Good news- I still managed to lose .04 lbs. I'll take it.
Trying better for Day 2.
Best heath wishes you !
Juice for Day 1:
