Well, today marks the first day of my personal 5-day juicing challenge.
A few weeks ago my husband and I watched the movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". If you haven't seen this movie, it is about a man named Joe who went on a 60 day juice-only diet. This diet was a choice he made in order to lose some much needed weight and hopefully rid him of a disease that caused him chronic hives.
Well, after the 60 days, not only had he lost a significant amount of weight, but he also was off all medications and feeling fantastic.
Now, 60 days is a little extreme, and not something that I would recommend that anyone should do! But, 5 days....I'm curious.
What will a 5 day juice cleanse be like for someone who already eats a primarily vegetarian diet? I'm going to find out.
What is the purpose of my cleanse you may ask, well, there are always those 5-10 vanity lbs. that I'd like to get rid of, but I also like to know what it is that my clients are going through before I recommend something to them. Whether that be in their workout programs, or in nutritional suggestions that I make, I try to stay away from the "do as I say, not as I do" motto. I'll do it too so the journey can be shared.
Follow my daily update and I will share my thoughts, feelings and physical changes with you along the way!
