So I started my weight loss journey with a juice cleanse that lasted all of 36 hours!!!
We planned to go on for 10 days…but our bodies had other ideas. There were many reasons that this cleanse didn’t last..
- making enough juice for two people to live off of everyday takes a ridiculous amount of time (time I could just be working out..eh)
- I don’t do well with starving..especially when I feel sick from my blood sugar going all loopy. It’s one thing to be hungry and it’s another thing to feel like you are going to go into a diabetic coma when you drink the juice or pass completely out inbetween juices.
- I was experiencing NO “good” detox symptoms…and didn’t have any of the elimination “activities” that others talk about.. In fact, the first 24 hours I didn’t even “go”. :(
- After 36 hours I couldn’t even smell juice without gagging!
It was all just a horrible experience that I ended with a nice humanely raised organic burger!!
Now I am on to eating healthy, watching the carbs and processed food, increasing my veggie intake, counting calories, keeping a food journal and drinking more water. I’m also working on getting my girlfriend to join a gym with me..but she hates gyms so that might be a no go as a couples activity :(
Slow and steady wins the race.. that’s what I’m telling myself!!
