Pre-fast Monday 12 y
I JUST NEED TO DETOX! that's about all.
Well Iím back again! Iím really looking forward to this fast. I read a lot of my entries before and Iím impressed with how introspective and honest I had been. It was also great reading about the successes I experienced on the fast! Its also hard to believe I have been away from this site for many years! While Iíve been busy maintaining and writing for my own site, attending graduate school, nursing people with mental health problems back to life, ect, ect, ect....its still great to know I can always come back to cure zone and pick up where I left off!
Well Iím not over thinking th ... read more
Day 3 16 y
I feel like I may have to make a choice between running and fasting for the time being.
Things are still going well. My only problem is my runs seem to be suffering. I could barely make it through mi 2 today! I felt much lighter but I didnít feel as if I had the energy! That was very frustrating. I feel like I may have to make a choice between running and fasting for the time being. Iím not sure that Iím willing to give up on my runs though. Anyone who has ever run understands how it makes you feel. Itís almost too good to live without.....Yet, I really want to do this detoxing again, and it wouldnít hurt to lose 10 lbs as well! I think I need to pray and do some thi ... read more
Day 1-2 16 y
Starting off not too badly. Had a lot of apple juice this morning. Wanting to EAT breakfast (thinking of eggs and toast) this morning but I resisted. I have to get through the first 8 days. They are always the most difficult!
Day one didít go over too well. To start off yes, it was easy considering how much I had eaten the day prior. Towards the late evening though, I started to get deep hunger pains and also a killer headache. I just kept drinking water. On the plus side I had a really amazing sleep. I woke up and did a 4 mi run/walk. I had been running 3-4 mi non stop in the weeks prior however I took last week off. Anyway on my run this morning I was suprised that I was able to go as long as I had. I could have went longer but I developed cramps (hence the walk run sequence)I was suprised that I wasní ... read more
Back a year later....time for another fast 16 y
The goals of this fast are first to fast for 30 days on pure juices and herbal teas. I will be reading my bible, meditating daily and praying daily to get in touch with my spiritual side. Overall, I'm just hoping to feel better emotionally and physically. I'm anticipating a new outlook on life. More positivity, more clairity and more focus.
Well Iím back after a year. I havenít been following up with my healthy lifestyle thatís for sure. Itís been more then easy to slip back into my ĒoldĒ ways.
Iím not happy where I am right now. I need to lose weight again but more importantly I need to get in touch with my spiritual side again. I miss feeling close to God, like Iím doing the right thing and as if he is guiding me in the right direction.

Continuation of Juice fasting 17 y
This entry is entirely self-help and will probably not help you during your juice fast.
One of the reasons I like abstaining from food during a juice fast is because it makes me think. Iím not sure what causes this, maybe the energy thatís usually devoted to digestion goes into the brain waves? Anyway, Iíve been thinking a lot about why Iím single. Iím 25 years old, good looking relative to my peers and intelligent yet I havenít been able to meet anyone recently. At times I wonder whatís wrong with me, if Iím actually the problem. Iíve considered just giving up, actually Iím at that point now. I kind of feel like I donít want to be in a relationship now or ever. So Iím ... read more
Day 2 17 y
I've been trying to focus on taking things one day at a time.
I hate counting the days, it makes me feel as if Iím waiting for something to happen. In other words, Iím not living in the present. Iíve been trying to focus on taking things one day at a time, having no expectations (having expectations sabatoged my efforts the last times) and living fully. In any case, Iím really greatful to be doing this again, itís a worthwhile challenge. As for symptoms, physically I feel fine, my body temperature has dropped somewhat but other than that Iím good. I even had the energy to do 30 mins of cardio this evening at the gym. Iím trying to take it easy t ... read more
I woke up this morning dreaming about hot baked waffles smothered in butter and syrup!......I weighed in and I'm at 165 but I know that much of that is water weight.
Well I woke up this morning dreaming about hot baked waffles smothered in butter and syrup! mmmmmmm! I had to log onto this site to distract myself. Yesterday I pigged out BIGTIME because I knew Iíd be starting this fast and I guess now, Iím really craving eating again because of that.
So my plan for today is just to drink juices and lots of water. I weighed in and Iím at 165 but I know that much of that is water weight. Iíd also like to get to the gym either before or after school for a good workout, that should put me on the right track.
I really hate starting these fasts, itís ... read more
At it again....another juice fast 17 y
I'm back! Since my last post over 2 months ago I tried fasting one more time and I lasted for about 12 days. I feel like I'm ready to try it again and I want to use this forum as a way to record my daily experience - sort of like a journal.
Iím back! Since my last post over 2 months ago I tried fasting one more time and I lasted for about 12 days. I feel like Iím ready to try it again and I want to use this forum as a way to record my daily experience - sort of like a journal. Iíve had really good results from fasting concerning maintaining my weight at 160. I havenít gone up and unfortunately I havenít gone down either. My ultimate goal was 140 and still continues to be and I know that I can get there at some point.
Well here I go again. Iím setting a few goals:
1. Fast for 14 days (2 weeks)
2. Raw fruits/vegete ... read more
day 3 17 y
Feeling down during the fast
today isnít going that well I actually feel pretty sick. Iím just really tired and really stressed out. This could be a product of my detox. In any case, I canít lie, Iím missing eating, food and all itís wonderful tastes, textures and smells. I also miss the feeling of contentment I once felt during the previous fast. I miss the feeling of just being ĒokayĒ with the world and with my life. Iím not sure how Iíve strayed as far as I have, but I know I need to get back. visit the page
Day 1 17 y
First day of the juice fast, went moderately well.
Not an extremely difficult day for me but I did miss food and eating. And then the dinner time smells! I rushed home from work today only to remember that I started juice fasting again and wouldnít be participating in meal time that was the hardest part of the day for me. Onto day 2! visit the page
Starting a new Juice Fast -- Again! But this time I'm ready 17 y
Am I scared that I won't be able to do this again -- yes. I am. But I have to try. I've done it before and I've gained so much mentally and physically that I can't possibly write off the entire experience as an isolated event.
Well Iím back at it folks. Iíve decided to start another juice fast this time Iíll be going for 28 days starting tomorrow (Monday).
Iíve decided to fast again because I feel like Iíve lost a lot of things that I had gained from the original fast. For example, itís 2:30 a.m., I canít sleep - my insomnia is back. Not only that but I havenít been reading my bible or praying much at all lately. I have been indulging in the things of this world (so to speak) and itís taken itís toll on my spirit and my body.
I have also regressed back into some of my old eating patterns. Previously I ... read more
Ready to start a new Juice Fast - Monday 17 y
Starting another juice fast: Goal, 3 weeks abstaining from food and only consuming fresh juices.
Here I go again, starting for the second time. My second attempt at the juice fast was unsuccessful so I am trying again.
My goals are as follows:
1. stick with the juice fast as planned
2. exercise daily (starting weight 161)
3. Meditate, read bible, pray daily
I will continue to post on this site of my daily experiences with the juice fast! visit the page
Broken Fast before my due date but I'm only human...
2. I'm not perfect I'm human, I'm not a failure, I will learn from this experience and it will help me to grow! It will aid in my success in the future.
I have been off the juice fast for the past 3 days. Iíve been seeing this guy who has this innate love of baked foods, probably because his mother use to own a bakery growing up. Anyway, on tuesday I had a desire to bake him healthy banana muffins and carrot muffins. I told myself that I could definitely bake these muffins and not want to sample them myself. Well once they came out of the oven I couldnít resist, I ate them. On Wednesday the same, I ate and ate. Thursday today, I started again eating and eating. I feel incredibly sick and bloated. While Iím upset that I broke the fas ... read more
Juice Fast Day 4 17 y
I have been asking myself a lot of profound questions lately as well. When I'm tempted not to do things, or talk to people because I'm shy or afraid I ask myself how would my reaction to this situation be different if this was my last day on earth. Would I take the risk? Would I dare to challenge myself to have more courage? It's amazing how much more motivated you feel when you start asking the right questions of yourself....
I took a break from the gym over the weekend and for exercise I did a lot of walking instead. This morning I was back at the gym, cardio was fine but again I struggled with my weight sets. Today Iím going to look up vegetebles that are high in protein and start juicing them before I work out. Iíll see if this make a difference in the amount I can do at the gym.
I weighed myself this morning and Iíve actually GAINED 3 lbs from where I was after my first juice fast. I think this is incredible seeing as I ate normally after my fast and have only been on this second juice fast for 4 day ... read more
Day three of the juice fast 17 y
Previous Page, Page 1
My stomach is burning today because Iím very hungry. Iíve found that Iíve been able to be somewhat comfortable with these hunger symptoms. The small burning in my stomach, the gentle rumblings and gurling sounds are more tolerable this time around. Again, Iím enjoying feeling in control, Iím more calm and Iím sleeping very well. For the past few days I have felt overly tired in the mornings but I attribute this to working out while cutting back on my caloric intake.
