I am still here and still on the juice fast. I have not, contrary to what many naysayers claim collapsed of exhaustion or been struck down with any kind of illness.
I am still drinking the same juices, though yesterday I fancied a change and opted for one of Jason Juicemaster Vale’s recipe, its very similar to my Phil Staples Juice but I added a 1/4 of avocado, I blended it into the juice. It was a nice change but today I am back on the Phil Staples Juice and it really does hit the spot. You should give it a try whether you are juice fasting or not.
Allow me to quote Dr Fuhrman:
‘What if I told you that it is possible to prevent more than 95% of deaths from cardiovascular disease and 90% of all cancer deaths simply via excellent nutrition? 1.1 million Americans will suffer heart attacks this year, tragedies that are completely unnecessary. Nobody HAS to die of heart disease or of a circulatory system-related death. Such deaths are nearly always preventable. The disability, suffering and life years lost as a result of these conditions are almost entirely the product of dietary/nutritional ignorance.
Making a transition to healthy eating can literally reverse the progress of most chronic diseases; can prevent heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and even cancer; can dramatically extend lifespan and healthy life expectancy.’
I quote this because juicing is not just about the weight loss. Sure, its a fantastic side effect but the main purpose should always be to improve one’s health and recalibrate the body.
Yesterday I was watching a piece on the news about the Iowa State Fair. They showed all the things that you can buy which are deep fried and on a stick…I squirmed when I saw a 4oz lump of butter that was mixed with honey and cinnamon and deep friend. Yuck! Pre juicing I probably would that thought hmm wouldn’t mind trying that!
Having typed out Dr Furman’s quote I am feeling rather smug as I take a slurp of my Phil Staples Juice for breakfast…better than bacon and eggs swimming in fat any day!
Tomorrow is Day 9!
