Weighed in at 209.4 today. Lost 3 pounds in one day. My mind is telling me that is not healthy haha. Last night was ROUGH. I think it was a mistake to ride my bike to work yesterday, I should be conserving calories on a diet like this. I felt very tired, exhausted even, and highly irritable. My body was HUNGRY. I did good though, didn’t eat any solids, but it was not easy. A beautiful summer evening, that is best to be forgotten.
This morning started out well…made a nice cantaloupe, watermelon, apple, pear and carrot drink. Was very tasty….
For the lunch ones, similar to yesterday…celery, head of lettuce, cucumber, pepper, tomato, carrots and fennel.
I also added some apple to sweeten it up. The veggie drinks are not high yield at all, so to bulk them up, alot of times we will need to add some watermelon, to get the quantity desired. You don’t get much juice out of a head of lettuce. Its pretty potent stuff though! Energy is down right now, belly is gurgling alot, not really enjoying the drinks…it wants a BIG PIECE OF NICE SOFT SOURDOUGH BREAD to fill up the hole in there haha The daydreams have begun and the mind is going to the darkside..”why are you starving yourself”, “this is bulls*it, you are torturing yourself!”, just go eat a bag of trail mix, you will feel better”, “MAN, YOU, ARE GOING TO LIVE YOUR LIFE EATING LIKE THIS…THATS NO FUN!” stuff like that. I feel a bit light-headed when I get up, “must have low blood pressure”. hahahaha. Oh man, must forge on….
The funny thing is that we eat (I feel) really well…basically salads and fruits every day. If this is hard for me, imagine people on the SAD (Standard American Diet) doing this juice fast…you have to be STRONG. In body and in mind.
Strong Like Bull
