Ending the juice fast

I have pretty much given up on my juice fast and have regressed to the eat one healthy meal, juice two. This works for me. I still lose weight, but I still get to eat a meal. I like it. My meal today was a BIG salad full of great healthy things like romaine, broccoli, carrots, and cucumber. Thing I love about veggies, eat as many as you want, fill yourself up, and you’re still eating the right thing!

Last night, not so good though. Before work I had a bean burger with cucumber slices and broccoli on the side, not too bad. I had a sugar craving like nobody’s business though last night. Probably because I am starting that time of the month, but man, I ate a few pieces of candy I stole out of guests welcome bags and I had a cinnamon raison bagel with peanut butter on top. If I would have had a dollar, I would have bought a straight up Hershey’s chocolate bar. I had it in my head, if ANYONE tips me, that is a sign from the universe that I should eat the candy bar. This guy checks in, who has tipped EVERY time he’s checked in, so in my mind I was thinking, “Oooooooo, I am getting a candy bar.” At the end of the transaction he walks away, no tip. It’s like the universe not only said no, but bitch slapped me for stealing candy. Well played universe.

I had two juices ready to go last night, but that bagel filled me up so much that I wasn’t able to drink them, so I have them for tonight. Yay.

So, nothing else to report really. I will carry on with eating fruits and veggies, try to avoid sweets even though sometimes the craving just get so bad I will probably buy a Hershey’s Cookie and Cream candy bar (My new favorite).

  1. Juicing is great, but don’t be afraid to eat. I’m not sure what your goals are and whether you’re into eating raw meals, but eating raw has helped me a great deal. I’m in no way a raw foodist, but when I combine juicing with raw meals, it works for me. I look and feel great. Some people eat 60/40 or 80/20 (raw/cooked). Also sometimes when people juice, they’re not getting in enough calories and then you feel deprived hence the sugar cravings. When juicing alone, it is important to consume until your heart’s content, the same goes with eating raw meals, which includes juicing. I highly suggest checking out “fullyrawkristina” on YouTube, while she’s a 100% raw foodist, her videos are very often informative and inspiring. My favorite times to juice is in the mornings and evenings.

    • Thanks for the tips and explaining my possible sugar cravings because it was like no sugar craving I have ever had before. I probably did need more juice, and had some made and ready to go, then I thought…ahhh..just one piece of candy and I wad done for. Thanks again and I will be adding raw eating in.

  2. The universe was so cruel to you, yet did you a favour at the same time. :p
    I’m with T.D on your sugar cravings–I am definitely drinking 3 times as much juice as you did on my detox. Without it my levels would drop and i’d become ravenous. I think next time you just need to remember you’re doing your body good with juicing, so drink as much juice as you possibly can otherwise you won’t get enough calories (then you’ll steal candy haha).
    I love your blog so far, keep it up! πŸ˜€
