My goal is to do a 43 day juice fast. I had about 60lbs to lose. I have been on a juice fast for 21 days now. After the first 14 days, I lost 15-17 lbs (fluctuates) and last week I have completely stopped losing weight! I do pretty intense workouts 5 days a week as I am training for a triathlon. I'm only drinking an average of 3 juices a day. I have consumed juice and water only. I have to be consuming less calories than I am in-taking - so the math does not add up!

Why would I suddenly stop losing weight?

I'm thinking if I'm not losing weight...I'm ready to start eating again!

Are you drinking enough water? I have even gained weight during juice fasts only to release it later again. Are you a woman? Hormones involved?
I suggest definitely continue the goal that you had set for yourself. That way you always win!

Hi Hanneke, thanks for your help! To answer your questions:

I am drinking enough water - I drink several 20oz bottles throughout the day and always have one in hand.

I am a woman - I was actually thinking about seeing my physician about a hormone imbalance.

Still not sure on completing it until my goal. If I do not lose anymore weight this week, it might be beneficial to eat for a month or so and do another 10 days in the future. I think its strange I am hardly in-taking any calories and definitely burning more than enough calories and still not losing weight.
