If a butterfly could talk of its experience of changing from a crawling insect into a multi-colored, graceful, flying creation, it would most likely be saying the words I felt in my heart. My healing through the 40 days of juice fasting gave back what drugs took away. Thanks for your support Tom. You were a good friend when I needed one.-Carl Wineberg

At the end of the 17-day fast, a physical problem was gone. My doctor had told me I had a stomach reflex disease and would have to take pills for the rest of my life, but after the fast I no longer had that disease; I was completely healed. Thanks Tom, your books and support was fabulous.-Grace Lang

I have lost over 30 lbs. to date, and have a new look as well as a new outlook on life. Not only did the fasting help me with my physical self, but my spiritual self will never be the same. The books were a total support and read them several times, especially when detoxing and feeling apathetic. I heard you have a new book coming out. Save my email, I want it.-Debbie Ried

On the 27th of August 2001 I began a 30 day juice fast. I didn’t actually plan to do 30 days, it seemed impossible to even think of. I just began and thought I’d see where it went. Now I stand in amazement. You asked what I thought of your books. OUTSTANDING!!!-Gray Hodge

This is the information I have been searching for. So clear, so commons sense, I wonder why I missed it. When I was younger, I was an athlete, but now.... 20 years later, oh no. But, you gave me new vision and inspiration. Second day of my juice fast and my wife is loves the recipe book. I would recommend these books to anyone how needs a life overhaul.-Juan Callion

Ok, I now know just how messed up I am. The chapters on the emotions and eating hit home. I am planning a fast but, I know that I need to rebuild and cleanse my mind of all the toxic thinking and emotions that make me want to hide in the pleasures of food. I feel alive for the first time in many years. Keep on going, Tom you have helped me more than my words can express.-Suzie Bilinere

Looking at Moreno Tuguinay now, I am amazed. The transformation from a sickly man to a beaming, positively hopeful one, free of all those health problems which have plagued him through the years is simply remarkable – and all achieved without taking any drugs, just juice fasting for a month. For a physician trained in conventional medicine, this is an eye opener.-Dr. Clare Lalwet

When I started this fast I was taking about 20 pills a day, 4 different prescriptions. Now, after completing a 20 day fast, I am on no prescription medications. I have lost 25 pounds. And I have no swelling in my face, ankles or feet as before.-Steph White

Elaine Harrison Lost 40 lbs. and Healed Stiffness in the Spine.

Since I broke that fast, I have lived a hygienic-vegetarian diet for the last five years.-Elaine Harrison

The swelling on my right side from my liver had disappeared completely. I'm off drugs permanently.-Carl Wineberg

    Day 1:

    I wasn’t able to start the juice fast on Thursday as planned. I had a family emergency arise, that required me to be able to focus and be present 100% of the time. I know from the 10 day juice fast I did last year, I’m not 100% present. I tend to go into a “zone out” mode, and get tired from talking, activity doesn’t kill me, but people wanting me to talk drains me. Weird!!

    Today is my day 1. I just woke up, so I’m not faced with any struggles of hunger yet. That will be here by mid afternoon, and my challenge starts then. As my toddler naps, I need to fight the urge to raid my cupboards.

    My husband is in support of the juice fast, with plenty of guard up. He doesn’t like that I’m also using it as a kick off to a diet. I’ve tried explaining to him it’s my way of trying to kick my binging disorder in the bum. I need to face it head on, get past it, plan how I want to come off the fast, and change my eating habits. Hopefully I will be successful, and in 6-12 months, he will see it was a great thing for me to undergo.

    So here comes my first day, my first goal is 20 days, and I hope to hit 30 days. But, I do plan on taking this one day at a time.

    Day 2:

    The hunger is there, ugh. I hate that empty feeling in my stomach, where I want to sit or stand with bad posture, probably in some sort of subliminal hope the hunger will subside with this stance. I feel slightly flu’ish, but I feel better than I did on day 2 of the last fast. I don’t like this foggy’ness though. I feel like I’m not quite understanding people, and I’m also getting annoyed with small talk. Yep, I’m a grump when hungry ;)

    I bought some Azteca Fire tea from Teavanna. For those unfamiliar, it’s an herbal tea that tastes like chocolate covered cherries. It’s my treat while fasting! I ordered Sucanat, I’ve never had, but it looks like Tom on this site uses it. I also ordered Celtic Sea Salt to replace my regular sea salt. I’m getting my kitchen stocked slowly as I fast. So once I’m done, I won’t have to load up on some of these hard to find products.

    I need to jump online and try to find which path I want to follow once I’m done. My husband is a STRICT vegetarian, I’ve alway been a meat eater, primarily chicken, with a once or twice a yr steak. I also love my junk food and organic wine. Give me wine when my husband is working late, and I will raid my cupboards of all the junk food.

    I stepped on the scale this morning, I was 156.2, but, I didn’t get an accurate start weight, I was somewhere between 157-158 (probably closer to 158). I know the first few days are water. I’m looking forward to 1 week into the process, when it becomes a much higher ratio of fat I’m seeing drop off the scale.

    Day 3….. 154 lbs

    So here I am, hungry, with my internal voice screaming at me to make a smoothie, or go buy a veggie delight sub from Subway…. Why oh why? I don’t like this hunger, I am envious of those who make it to day 3 and on and don’t experience the hunger anymore. I’m also frustrated because the fog is heavy today, and to focus with my toddler is difficult.

    I did wake up with a pounding headache, so late this morning I broke and took 1 ibuprofen. It took a little edge off, but is barely helping. OUCH :(

    Hi Lisa, I wish I could say something profound to make you stop thinking about food. But alas…YOU are the only one that can stop yourself.

    Prayers are a good way to persevere through a difficult time. And a good time of thanks!

    So be happy you made it through 3 days! Half of the first time fasters don’t make it past ONE! God Bless, Ron

    I had to stop the fast. I woke this morning with the worst headache, I could barely function or move. Which is not acceptable, as I gave up my career as a biochemist to be a full time SAHM. I took 2 Excedrin, but with all the caffeine in the Excedrin, the shakes came on bad, I had to eat. Shortly after eating, the headache completely subsided, and the shakes from the Excedrin stopped. Right now I’m going to stick to a vegetarian diet.

    I also learned with a 22 month old son entering the terrible 2′s, I may need to wait until he pulls out of it before I attempt a fast again. The tantrums, for what seemed like no reason to me, was hard to deal with rationally and calmly while in a fog and hungry. The last thing I would want for him, is to have me lash out over something petty because I’m fasting. It’s not fair to his little innocent world.

    Pianful headaches indicate your body is toxic. You may try eating salads and just fruit for 2 days before trying another juice fast.
