Jess’s 40-Day Juice Fast
I decided to do a fast because I was so sick and tired of feeling sick and tired all the time. And my feeling of no control around food. A good friend of mine introduced me to it. He had done it for 20 days and told me how great he felt and he thought I would greatly benefit from it. So I decided to do it! I have to say the first 3 days were brutal. But after that I started to feel great. The first thing I noticed were my sinuses clearing up and I could actually breathe through my nose!
I work a job where I can go to work at any hour any day of the week. So it was difficult to have a routine to my diet at all. I found myself always grabbing something quick at fast food place or gas station. Then after felt like crap. I would always catch whatever virus was going around. Seemed like I was always sick with something or other.
About 10 days into my fast I had extreme energy…Like a wave that just came over me! I can’t even explain how great that felt and how I forgot that feeling! I now get more done in one day than I used to in weeks. Every morning I’d wake up and feel rested and felt thinner.
I couldn’t wait to have another day ahead for me. I have had migraines since I can remember I haven’t had one since my fast. This has been an amazing life changing experience for me.
My whole outlook on life is changed, I’m more of a positive person, happier about life, more pleasant person to be around. I have a spring in my step that’s been missing for a long time.
I thank Tom for his help for answering all my questions and for having this website for us to share our experiences. I don’t think I could have done it without this site!
