I know it's only day # 3 but so far I have gained 3 lbs and feel bloated. What went wrong? I drink 2 16 oz of juices a day and water. Juice 1: kale, cucumber, celery, ginger, and green apple. Juice 2: carrots, beets, red apple, celery and ginger. I have had no bowel movements in the past 3 days. Before the juice fast..I was a food addict. It's only been 3 days, yes I do miss eating, cravings etc..but I'm trying hard to stick to this. I am 5 ft 3 inches and 165 lbs, My belly looks like I'm 6 mths pregnant. I hate it. What to do? :(

May I ask what your blood-type is?

You probably have a lot of food in your intestines that is not pushing through, yet. When it decides to push through, watch out!
Not to be gross, but you may have to spend a day or so working through a bunch of it.

I'm on my 4th juice fast since January 9th. I've been alternating 10 days on, 10 days off (mostly) since then. This latest time off, however, was 23 days. It's day 4 and I'm *still* pooping out what I'd been eating over the last 23 days.

My experience with it has been exceptional. You might check out my blog, I've been trying to make a post every day about my experiences.

At least your first few days were better than mine. I became horribly sick, vomiting, feverish, migraines. It lasted three days. It was all part of the detox. I didn't do any detox before I started my juice-fast and basically faced everything from caffeine withdrawal to full-on toxic-shock.

Did you do anything to ease into your juice-fast? Or did you jump right in with both feet?

Give it a solid 7 days, I'd say. If you are still having issues after 7, then you may want to consider a colon cleanse (which usually requires some food) to ease into the juice-fast.

I just jumped right in. I have years of toxic, waste build up. I used to be 105 lbs now I am 165 lbs...and My tummy is fat, as if I am pregnant...lots of fat and waste products probably. No headaches yet, Just the bloated feeling..and I feel cold/chills at times..I will take a laxative tea tonight to get things moving.

How did the tea work out for you? Any movement?

I have been on juice-only since Monday and I'm *still* evacuating food from the weeks prior. It amazes me how the body holds onto stuff and for as long as it does.

I end my juice-fast tomorrow and start my water fast on Sunday.

Probably a good thing for you to have done exactly as you did. Sorry about your migraine, though. :(

Don't fret about coming off the juice. I know I tend to beat myself up when I come off unexpectedly, but you don't need to do that. Look at what you've accomplished and take each day on its own. :)

I'm a little nervous about the water-only fast coming up. It's just really important to me that I accomplish it, though I'm concerned that I'll "fall flat on my face".

I've also been looking into the "Paleo" diet (Caveman Diet). I've been using it between my fasts to quite a bit of success and talking to a lot of folks who are on it and they are reporting some very interesting results.

I'll certainly go Paleo when I come off my fast--and I hope that I can manage the 30 days water-only and 5 days juice-only which would end on May 5th.

Are you juicing to lose weight? Get more healthy? Etc? Or is there a deeper element? (spiritual?)

Yeah! I'm a bit disappointed, but i cannot handle migraines. I feel a bit better and ready to start again tomorrow. I need to lose 40 lbs, I have high cholesterol and an underactive thyroid. My waist line is way too big, can cause other problems later in life. I turn 40 next year, so i want to be in the best health. I am a vegetarian, but an unhealthy one. I'm also doing it for spiritual reasons. I very much into meditation and yoga, but don't practice regularly like I used to. I want to feel connected to 'the source'..I know I can do this..the back pain and migraine hit me off guard. But I did lots of research, bought some supplements to take, got some juice recipes..and ready to start again tomorrow. For detox symptoms, i will have to try to handle it someone. Before kids, I used to eat heatlhy, do yoga 3 x a week, and meditate daily..I had a great routine..Now everything changes. I need to get myself back into a routine. First I need to get rid of the toxic, waste build up inside, then start eating vegetarian meals. Good luck on your water fast, I have heard of people who do a few days water and few days juice. They alternate.

You might want to consider looking at the book "The Paleo Solution" by Robb Wolf.
