Wed, 18 Sep 2013 00:04:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Mellele Mellele Fri, 06 Apr 2012 19:59:35 +0000 I should add that I am 56 years old and have been obsessed for a long time at 175 lbs on a 5′ frame, it was not always like this, I spent my 20 and 30′s at 98-105 lbs. I started this first fast with blender drinks and 75% healthy eating. I am relatively healthy, do have borderline hypertension and my metabolism is very slow from long periods of not eating breakfast or lunch till late in the day, then pigging out the rest of the day, getting very little sleep does not help.

I am tired of being unhealthy and just need direction.

By: Mellele Mellele Fri, 06 Apr 2012 19:35:10 +0000 Good day,
I appreciate all of the information and the comments. I am on a long juice fast and my desires for anything, juice and water are diminishing, I force myself to drink water but only have been consuming about at most 24 ounces of juice (combinations and mono-juices, all fresh). This week I am doing psyllium husk and daily enemas along with a cleansing herbal tea in the evenings, this is hard for me to do and I am not sure it is benefiting me at all, but I wanted to move out any toxins that I have released in my body (I hate and gag at doing the salt flush).
I have had none of the symptoms that are associated with fasting in the beginning but now I feel weaker internally but not physically, I have complete several long hikes this week and several dance classes. I want to stay on this fast for 55 more days, if I can, I have not reached the mental clarity that I expected or any sort of peace of mind or enhanced spirituality that I have read about–I have not had any of the good or bad expectations that I have read on any site except some weight loss, I started at 171 and I am now 150 and that seems like a little to me for 35 days.
Please tell me what can do to improve the situation and what am I doing that is wrong.
Thank you

The Paleo diet is perfect. Weightloss is a guess. Some lose very fast some lose slow.

By: Kathyjuiced Kathyjuiced Fri, 30 Mar 2012 16:07:33 +0000 Hi Tom, I love your website and your ebooks, I have tried to do a 40 day juice fast for lent, I started off brilliantly but the past 10 days have been really difficult, when preparing meals for my family I keep nibbling and then bingeing on bits of chocolate and it is making me feel so low. I wanted to try the lemondae diet but then decided that overall I have felt really good on my juice fast and would like to continue after lent, I have lost 6kg (about 13lbs) I have another 8kg to lose and would like to lose by the end of May. I think I was struggling because I was’nt having enough juice. Can I add essential oils (UDO’s choice) and Green Vibrance to my first juice of the day? Could I lose 20 lbs by then end of May, would it be okay to follow the Paleo Diet once I’ve lost all my weight? Thanks for all your work and this wonderful website

Ambien maybe be hard to quit but you cannot cure a sleeping disorder while taking it.
As to your skin disorder, I would quit the antibiotic and see what the juice fast does.
You may not sleep and get a break out on the skin but that may be on the path to healing.

By: aconklin aconklin Wed, 28 Mar 2012 23:16:43 +0000 Hi Tom,
I have just started a juice fast (I am on day 2). I am trying to get off of all prescribed medications. I stopped taking Lexapro 10mg, mid 2011, I still took Ativan intermittently afterwards until two weeks ago, and I am currently on 10mg Ambien, and 100 mg Minocycline twice a day. I have suffered from insomnia most of my adulthood, and developed acne a few months ago that wouldn’t go away. From what I have read in past posts this seems to be a good route to go for me. I am curious as to when I should absolutely stop taking the meds. The Ambien I am sure will be the hardest, the Minocycline can I just stop? Neither my Internal Medicine Doc nor my Dermatologist approve of fasting and would rather prescribe me more meds. I just want to make sure I am doing this in the right fashion. I am anxiously awaiting for my energy to resume as I have been tired and have two kids, a dog, and a husband to care for (oh yeah and myself lol). Any thoughts on the meds would be helpful.

Yes you can make the juice and carry it. What to expect, feeling better with each day that passes with occasions of being tired or hyper. The more you drink the more energy you have and the less weight you lose. Complex juices are healthier. Headaches usually subside and hunger comes and goes.

By: hfluitt hfluitt Sun, 11 Mar 2012 07:25:35 +0000 I noticed this is an older thread but I hope its still active because I have several questions. First off a little about me im 27 a mother of three and highly overweight. Im only 5’3 but weigh 220. I want to do this for cleansing purposes as well as weightloss. I’ve done a juice fast before but only for 4 days. I found it really hard to stick with because of how active my life is. Im a college student work full time and a full time mom. My first question is can I make a pitcher of juicefor the day or do I have to make it as I go? Also how bad would it be to substitute a glass of v8 occasionally if im out and about? How much juice should a person consume a day? Is it ok to make complex juices (berries apple carrot spinach) or should I stick to one fruit or veggie a drink? Also I want to try a 40 day fast which is long so is it safe and what should I expect? Do the headaches and hunger pains subside after day 4?
Thank you in advance :)

By: KarenSmithUS KarenSmithUS Tue, 13 Apr 2010 21:54:55 +0000 Hi Tom. I’m so glad I found this website; I’m really enjoying it. I started juice fasting, kind of on a whim, yesterday morning. Something made me feel it was important for me to do. I’ve never fasted before. I have been drinking Monavie Active today, about 8oz over the whole day. Also, herbal tea with honey. Is the Monavie okay? I’ve been okay with the hunger issue, I’m just now really getting hungry, but, I want to eat really bad. How long does this last? I just need some reassurance. I’m starting to get a little shaky.
Thank you, Karen
