  • devin reid, 30 years old female, weighing 52 kg / 114.4 lbs, 64 in /162.56 cm tall, From New York, United States US

  • Doing 30 days of Juice/Water Fasting. Starting December 16, 2011

  • Reasons for Fasting:
    Recently gained 15 lbs . I have been vegan for 15 years , recently have just been sitting at my computer ( due to work ) for 18 hours a day ... little gym time... stress eating, boredom eating, excessively eating. I also never drank alcohol until I moved to new york. I just feel sluggish, heavy, addicted to caffeine and carbs, too much sugar, not enough juicing , i take vitamins but still my body has changed , i don't feel the same. I was hit by a car this year and not being able to work out etc for a long period of time sent me into a depression where i ate and gained weight. I want to clean myself out physically and mentally ,press the reset button. My bones are very tiny ( my mother for instance who is 5'2" weighed 110 lbs 9 months pregnant. We are tiny people so this extra weight is really slowing me down and has destroyed my confidence, my focus, my attention , my mood. Looking to lose 10-15 lbs.

  • Past Fasting Experience:
    Do juice fasts, acupuncture, yoga, 100% raw diet most of the time - I go back and forth and have some time periods where im more loose with it etc but i have been too "loose" with it all for the past year . I keep making excuses for myself and have no been consistent. I need to regain that control over my state of mind towards being productive and positive , not self destructive.

  • Present Diet:

  • Supplements:
    spirulina, vitamin C, E, D, zinc, calcium, folic acid, b12, omega 3,

  • Relevant Medical History:
    endometriosis , other than that always been really healthy.

  • State of Mind:
    I always have this self destructive all or nothing attitude. I'll think " oh a little wont hurt..... " then i eat a little of something bad etc. and that snowballs into " well you've already ruined it might as well start over again tomorrow and just overeat crap for the rest of today , since its already ruined." I need support and focus and reassurance that i am mentally strong enough to do this long enough to see results and not give up when they don't happen overnight.

      I am rooting for you. I am on day 2 of my 40day juice/water fast. You can do it, just stay focused:-) There will be a lot of temptation but just keep thinking about your end goal and how great you will feel afterwards.

    Hello. I would like to fast too , bt find it so hard at this time of year, with lots of food around already. Do you have any tips how you deal with it?….Would be great to have some fasting friends..Im vegan too…and been eating badly aswell for last few weeks.

    Thanks for the support! i really need it…. because i have no support from friends. People suddenly become uneducated doctors when they find out you’re a vegan, detoxing, going on a fast. They always ask 43024 negative questions and bring up x,y, and z why “fasting” is crazy and unhealthy….while they eat the typical SAD diet!

    Anyways, im on day 2 … yesterday i included raw fresh juice and coconut water throughout the day. im also working out and rebounding on a mini trampoline!

    Im down 1 lb from yesterday. im going to start doing enema’s as well to help the process.

    The hardest has been cutting out caffeine so far and transititing to just water with no calories or tastes….. i hope i can do this!!!!!!

    thanks guys lets all do it :)

    Im going to admit i’ve not 100% committed / successful to this yet. but im not getting discourage. I work out and work in a fast paced industry so i’ve found myself not being able to completely be mental focused on succeeding with just water. Fully aware my #1 problem is making excuses for myself to eat!

    Today i cheated with: Coconut water (3 x 80 calorie servings) , and some sugar free gum, and some squash soup. AAAAAh and tomorow i have a goodbye lunch with my boss and assistants as im starting a new job on wed. how will i get through it?!

      I know exactly how you feel:-) YOu can do it. Its okay if you mess up because I have messed up sooo many times on my fast, but the important thing is that you don’t give up and keep trying and trying until you are able to accomplish it. It is hard to fast. I also realized when I fast, it seems like there is sooo much food around me and people are constantly eating. But I am asking God for strength. YOu are doing great. You will meet your goal if you don’t give up

    oh you guys! i think i need to be doing this when i am not starting a new job and the holidays! i havent been focused on this at all! i think after xmas i should start! re/start!

  6. monchichi780 says:

    So as promised, im starting again. I need to cleanse myself big time after this holiday. I’ve literally been sleeping 9 hours a day and still feeling tired when normally when im eating 100% raw , working out, and at my normal weight i only need 6 hours to feel totally energized and rested.

    Sooo im back on the water / juice fast again !!!!!!! I can do this!! 2012 !

    I am completely empathetic to the “all or nothing” mentality. I’ve always been that way too. Good luck with juice fast II!
