Hi guys! I want to do a juice fast for the following week (5 days only), however, I'm not sure what ingrediens I should get.. Currently I have the following in stock;
+ 4,5L store bought juice (the expensive, real deal. Not from concentrate, but pure fruits'n'vegs (I want to drink these in the morning; it's 5 bottles).
So, yea. I guess I'll need a lot of veggies? I'm 190cm and around 95kg btw, so I consume a bit.
What are you trying to accomplish? Juice fasts or diets aren't necessarily better than any other diet. It's just a convenient way to get your calories in. Might as well try soylent in that case.
Add in a lot of vegetables. People like kale, carrots and parsnips and things like that. Going on pure sugar isn't going to help you too much so you should add more starchy roots.
Just a cleansing desu m8.
Stuff on my buying-list would currently be; cucumber, carrots, kale and cellery. Is other types of kale than green good-tasting when juiced? White and red are cheap here.
I just got off a 2 week juice fast a week or so. If I was to say to buy something a lot of it's cucumbers because they give a lot of juice as well as celery.
What I usually had was a carrot and orange juice in the morning and then make two batches of that and save one for later and make a celery, cucumber, kale, lemon, ginger one for dinner. Should always follow the 20% fruits 80% vegetables rule unless you're not going for weight loss I guess.
I liked having juice with beets in it. Should check out reboot with joe for lots of good recipes I liked their butternut squash one and using sweet potatoes for your orange coloured juice has some tasty results, makes it a little thicker.
I never tried using white potatoes, I tried using a banana but after I did it and got no juice out of it I read up online and people all said not to do that because it's bad for the juicer. For me it was like, the first three days were absolutely torture, especially day two I was just laying in bed all day dreaming of pizza and hamburgers felt like total shit. Day 3 I felt a lot better and at Day 5 and after I felt like the best shit ever. After that it was pretty consistent but walking to work and back felt really tiring was always really winded and would have to take some juice with me there otherwise I'd be totally drained. Really brought home the "food is energy" thing for me. On day 16 I just ate a small salad and it was like the tastiest salad I've ever had in my life it was great. Afterwards I just found myself naturally making a lot more salads and trying to eat more greens with my meals. I just ended up eating like a vegan, I eat meat still every once in a while.
That's what I said in the second sentence of my post... the first reply to the thread. But that's still not going to change OP's decision of going on a juice fast. You might as well try to give good advice regardless. y so mad?
I lost about 20 pounds on it and I'm not sure the exact distance I think its 3 or 4 km? Usually is a half hour walk. I still drank coffee but only a small cup in the morning because I was just trying to cut back on the 6 cups a day I was having. Lots of water with lemon and ginger and lots of no caffeine herbal teas I just took it as an opportunity to try out lots of different kinds.
http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/dreamsicle-juice-recipe/ this is a good juicing recipie, what kind of juicer do you have? I got that breville juice fountain one because I found it cheap on ebay for like $75
How dumb are you? I stated my proportions, and that I wasn't doing it to lose weight. For a burger like you, it's 6'3" and 210. My bf is ~14%. The purpose is to give my body a break.
>Your body doesn't need a break from solid food. That's not how the digestive system works. 'Cleansing' is terrible for you and can lead to constipation and bowel cancer.
This. 'Cept for that last part.
But it wrecks your muscle tone/blood sugar with glycemic spikes.
If you want to give the body a rest, eat bland, eat clear, but don't give up your 4 food groups.
