Juice Fasting in Washington DC Part 2
It’s been two days since I finished my 10-day juice fast. When I last checked in, I was on day 7 and feeling great. I had lost 9 pounds at that point, and although my fast was primarily for health reasons and my desire to change my eating habits for the better, it still felt good to see the weight come off.
Days 8-10 were easy physically but difficult mentally. I wasn’t hungry very often and was full of energy, but I just really wanted to eat something. And cooking dinners for my family certainly didn’t help. It was a challenge to stay true to my goals, but I managed to do so, barely… And in the final weigh-in I had lost 12 lbs. Not bad at all!
I prepared for my first meal with gusto! I chopped loads of organic vegetables: carrots, onions, turnips, rutabagas, sweet potato, celery, squash, garlic, salt & pepper and added it all to filtered water. Then I let it simmer on the stove for several hours. My first bites of the soup were amazing. It was delicious and completely satisfied my cravings. I had another bowl for dinner with a few slices of avocado. Wow, I never knew soup could taste so good.
But today, day later, a funny thing has happened. Now that I have met my goal and am free to eat again, I have absolutely no desire to do so. I juiced for breakfast and lunch and will have soup and a small salad for dinner. Not because of a promise I made to myself about meeting a goal, but because that’s what feels right. It’s what my body is craving right now. Amazing…
I have no idea where this journey will take me. I am sure I will expand my repertoire of foods over time and will not eat healthy every single day. But I also feel certain that juicing will be a regular part of my diet and my life from now on. I just feel too good to let this all end.
