Juice Fast Progress Report – Marianna
Reason for fasting: I want to be in control of my my life, which I connect with being in control of my eating habits. I want to learn to listen my body and discover all the tastes I miss while eating junk food. I also want to lose some weight.
Intended Length of Fast: 40 days
First Name: Marianna
Last Name: Krol
Site User Name: Marianna
City, State and Country: Krakow, Poland
Weight:75,7 kg (if I calculated it well 167lbs)
Height: 170 cm (5,57ft)
Proposed Fasting Method: Juice fast (I’m wondering on being on a water fast for 1 or 2 days during the week, but I need to check how it will get along with my work).
Past Fasting Experience: water fast for 7 days (3 years ago. I didn’t break it well and I suppose it activated stones in my gallbladder which was eventually removed.)
Present Diet: I have periods of eating well mixed with binge eating. At the moment binge eating is mostly connected with staying at my parents place as all types of food, sweets and snacks are available all the time. It works similar when my parents visit me. When I’m on my own, I usually don’t buy more food than for 1-2 days. Unfortunately I have a tendency to eat while being in a lower mood, too much stress etc. 2 weeks ago I started the Dunkan’s protein diet which gave me all side effects possible so I stopped after 4 days.
Relevant Medical History: Gallbladder removed, some problems with kidneys, always cured with home methods (hot baths, drinking parsley broth).
Present Medical Problems: varicose veins tendency, family history of too high cholesterol. Nothing serious at the moment.
State of Mind: clear, motivated, proud as I see first results (I’m filling this form on the third day of my fast)
Limitations: The only limitation I can see is driving the car. I hope drinking enough fruit and vegetable juice will allow me to stay focused.
