Today is the first day of my first ever juice fast. I really feel like I need some encouragement. I feel pretty okay so far, just hard to focus, feel hungry. I am thinking this will be a three day fast for the first time but it's something I want to incorporate into my life. I'd appreciate any tips or suggestions, thanks!

Very welcome indeead ear honeandgreentea. You could learn a lot from reading these forums sharing many people's experience.

My experience for one is that any TASTE tends to stimulate your appetite.. and being on a juice diet is no different than beign on a fruit diet as what arrives in your stomach is the same.

Real fasting (no taste) is in most cases easier.

Please keep us posted.

The idea of fasting was very intimidating to me, I wanted to ease into it so a short juice fast seemed like a good idea. Day 1 I was very hungry, today, Day 2, I actually don't feel hungry at all. I just miss food! It takes up a lot of time of your day and gives you something to look forward to. I'd like to maybe incorporate a 36 hour fast once a week after I finish this three day juice fast. I've heard good things about weekly fasting.

I have a question, I've heard many times that consuming less than 1000 calories a day makes you gain weight! This seems odd to me, is it true? I am not overweight, losing a few pounds would be nice but I don't want to gain any during or after the fast.

I do hope, dear honeyandgreentea, that we can support you appropriately here.

the notion of gaining weight on a limited energy (calories) diet is a really ridiculous one. We cannot photosynthesize and we do not contain nuclear reactors. Our bodies need much more than 1000 calories per day to sustain itself. Thus, if you gain weight under these circumstances, it must be pure water or pure magic.
