Day 4: When I woke up I had energy and headache free throughout the day. I’ll be honest I had bunch of mixed emotions, it was only the smell of cooked food tickled my strength and determination. It’s insane how powerful the smell of cooked food is when you deprive your body it. I didn’t run away, I just went into the adjacent room and took deep breaths, taking note of how much more aware I was of the scent.
My skin is starting glow and completely clear and. I know I’ve lost weight but I’m not weighing myself until the end of the fast. My plan is to get a fitness routine written down first and then to jump on the scale for encouragement.
Day 5 of my juice fast felt light and healthy. I started the mornings with hot water and lemon instead of running to the juicer. It was better than Day 4 where I felt way hunger pangs and triggered by smells. One big lesson I hope to learn from this is being able to eat when I need to eat… and still, no headache.
