Notice that it's already working. You've already lost a bit of flesh (even if not actual weight, because it redistributes before it goes) and you've been feeling more optimistic. It can only get better now.

It sounded as though you were doing well by blending the juices of different fruits and vegetables. If it feels in any way boring, it could be time to start taking long walks. Go as fast as you can without getting puffed, and the day will come when you'll break into a run.

Are you back at work now? That would be challenging.

I just put the above post into google translate for Turkish, then got it turned back into English... and it didn't quite work. :lol:

I don't know I don't feel well..I'm lethargic. But as a wise outside observer you say it worked it must. I'm at work now. But not in the mood to do things better have a walk as you suggested.

Lethargy and not feeling well are part of the detoxifying process. I'm surprised it didn't kick in sooner for you, but by the fact that this is Day 8 it seems you're doing what you said you would do: taking it slowly.

I'm a member of a fasting forum (yes, really!) and saw a thread in which members seemed to agree that it was best (for most working people) to start a fast on a Thursday, because days 3 and 4 are the worst. It's a positive sign but feels like hell at the time...

so...

I'm obliged to tell you that the last time I began a fast, I aborted on Day 1 because by the afternoon it was either kill my husband and myself or make a cup of coffee to have with a cigarette. :( I understand that I've got a lot of toxic build-up and it will only get worse the longer I avoid doing anything about it.

I don't think I'm that. I have quite a bit of fasting experience and I know what works for me and what doesn't, but you're the best judge of what goes on for you. I'm just reminding you that your clothes felt a bit looser and you were feeling stronger and more optimistic. That's what it's all about, and that's what you'll have more of if you can stay with the program.

The bad stuff will pass and you'll feel infinitely better afterwards, but only you know how much you can take. Please be kind to yourself.

I was lethargic before I started fasting it just goes on. I'm not well for years but it seriously worsened at last two months. I just can't understand what's really happening inside. That's a major problem for me. And guess what my orange juice is ready to drink..

You're a star! :D Just make sure you're getting a variety of fruits and vegetables. You can look up what you need online, eg. on https://www.healthlinkbc.ca/health-topics/ta3868, and mix your drinks as you like.

Joe Cross's website https://www.rebootwithjoe.com/ has lots of helpful ideas.

Just reminding you of things you've said:

desperate788 wrote:Shopping for fruits and veggies is fun. I will buy all kinds of them.

I feel like I have lost weight. My stomach seems smaller.

Mental effects are subtle some optimism and feelings of energy indeed. You get used to fasting.

I liked juicing. This is just one day break. Tomorrow I will go on full force till I complete 10 days. After ten days there will be a consideration in which way to continue to consume fruits and vegetables.


This is all good stuff, it really is.

I just think what to do when 10 days complete. I'm generally low so not enthusiastic for juicing too.

Joe Cross wrote:Do you ever think about why we see in color and not in black and white? Well, I do, and I reckon it’s so we can see the beautiful fruits and vegetables that Mother Nature has provided for us. Green, red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and even white fruits and vegetables – the colors of the rainbow that are grown right out of the ground, nourished by sunlight, and not tweaked in a lab or dyed an unnatural color— are the healthiest foods on the planet.

And guess what? Their color actually means something. The red beets and the orange carrots are both super healthy, but they offer different health properties which is why you often hear me say, “Eat the rainbow every day.” Each color family is rich in unique and important micronutrients that are comprised of phytonutrients (plant compounds), vitamins and minerals that fuel your body to function optimally. Bottom line? The more color we consume, the larger the variety of nutrients we are adding to our bodies.

To better understand just how powerful these plants are, we’ve created a helpful “The Benefits of Eating the Rainbow” infographic to remind you why it’s important to eat a variety of colorful, vibrant fruits and vegetables.


And no, I'm not employed by Joe Cross.

Eating the Rainbow https://www.rebootwithjoe.com/eat-the-r ... lains-why/ makes it easier to get what you need each day without looking up lists of vitamins and minerals.

And if you need inspiration, you can keep watching the movie of his trip across America.

I'm off to buy a rainbow now.
