Nathan Gogol’s completes at 30-day juice fast.
Age: 23 years
Start Date: January the 11th / 2008.
Propose: I guess the main reason is to strengthen my walk with Christ. I try hard to remember that this fast is not for me and to look better and be healthier as much as it is to listen to Christ and follow him.
Health Problems: Health issues were a part of it cause poor health I believe can affect your spiritual realm. As for health issues. Nothing big, I have some strained muscles. I have a torn ligament in my ankle in the summer. I have poor digestion and somewhat over weight. Perhaps some mild depression and an unclear mind. My overall health needed a boost especially my lung. I used to smoke for 9 years, so I hope some help will come from this or that. I have also noticed my sense of smell has never been good due to a continous stuffy nose. My sense of smell and taste are dulled.
As for the juice, well I don’t’ own a juicer, however I have been buying all organic juices and monitoring the amount of intake. Its amazing how sweet and delicious everything tastes, and its only Day 6. I go to the natural store and have them make me a nice cup of veggie juice.
If you are serious about fasting for healing you might as well have a juicer. There are many cheap models out there under $100. The difference is amazing, more energy, quicker healing and smooth silky skin.
I don’t have a juicer. How does one know how many calories they are consuming of home made juice lot of fruit and veggies?
Calories in Fresh Juice
A 12-ounce glass of orange juice contains 180 calories
Carrot, grapefruit and tomato juices contain less than 100 calories per cup.
One cup of orange, apple, peach or pineapple juice does not exceed 150 calories.
A handbook by the United States Department of Agriculture lists the following in one glass of juice from one-half pound of fresh carrots: 12 g of protein, 18 g of carbohydrates, 69 mg of calcium, 1.3 mg of iron, 635 mg of potassium, 20,460 International Units (IUs) of vitamin A in the form of beta carotene, 15 mg of vitamin C, and small amounts of the B vitamins.
Would I break my fast on with veggie juice that is relatively thick, with tiny flakes of peppers they put in for flavor. Would have stopped my digestive system from its cleansing.
No that will be fine. It is bread, eggs, cheese, meat, that will halt the detox process.
What would you say a fast would do for my lungs after all that smoking as well as smoking dope years ago?
Juice fasting is amazing in what it can do for the lungs.
Starting tomorrow I will be starting to take my Okra Pepsin E3 which is an amazing product that form my research no one can top. It breaks away the mucus of the intestine and is used during cleanses.
Sure that will boost you colon cleansing. It will help during a short fast but after 14 days of juice fasting you colon is very clean and any cleansing formula will have marginal benefit.
For foot Detox, I guess your feet have a lot of pores on them there is a machine involved that is supposedto releases alot fo toxins through your feet. Is that bogus?
Yea, a waste of time unless have money to burn and it feels good.
