Andrea: 5 days of Juice Fasting

  • Andrea M, 34 years old Female, weighing 118 kg / 259.6 lbs, 70 in /177.8 cm tall, Christian. United States

  • Doing 5 days of Juice Fasting. Starting October 18, 2010

  • Reasons for Fasting:
    Overcome eating addiction and overeating; lose weight; improve health and energy levels

  • Past Fasting Experience:
    Juice fast - 7 days; water fasts 1-2 days

  • Present Diet:
    Typical American diet, except that I recently barred all fast food from my life.

  • Present Medical Problems:
    Plantar fasciitis (both feet); joint aches/pains; fatigue; vitamin d deficient; borderline hypothyroid

  • State of Mind:
    Very frustrated with myself for not having any self control and for letting my health get this bad at such a young age. But I know I have to do something. I'm hoping this fast will help me break through some of the barriers and move on to better health.

  • Limitations:
    I have two young children, so I can't do drastic fasts such as water fasting. I've got to maintain some kind of energy level to take care of them.

    Juice fasting is your best choice as you will have enough energy to care for you children but you will feel dragged out at times. I would get some kelp or dulse powder for the juice as it is rich in iodine.
    If you having problems due to compulsive behavior you should read You will need a longer fast than 7 days to cure your health conditions.

    Hi Andrea,
    I agree with Tom that juice fasting is by far the best option, the main reasons are the body will detox at a comfortable rate and not cause drastic cleansing symptoms which will make you feel really bad.

    Fresh fruit juice will provide balanced levels of enzymes , nutrients and organic sugars to create energy while you fast. This will also reduce cravings for food and keep your moods good.

    I have always used regular enemas and skin brushing while fasting and beforehand while preparing to fast as I am doing at the moment, which I have found to really help toxin elimination and reduce hungar pangs. Hope this is of help to you . regards Noor

    Thank you both for your input/advice! Tom – I’ll definitely look into getting the kelp or dulse powder. Noor – what is skin brushing? Never heard of that.

    The skin is a main organ of waste elimination as important as the liver and kindeys. During any form of fasting we are getting rid of loads of stored body waste, a lot of which is stored in fatty tissue. By activating more elimination via the skin we can really asist in toxin removal. Its very simple , get a medium/soft bristle bath brush , and on dry skin before a shower , brush as much of the skin from the feet upwards towards the heart, remember to do your arms as well , It takes about 5 mins, this will open up millions of skin pores and make your skin feel soft and very clean, no need for any fancy costly skin creams any more. Then have a hot shower, thats it, simple and profound, hope that helps , regards Noor
