Tuesday, September 2, Day 32 of Journal

a.m. weight 199.2 lbs.
no workout today

I decided not to start my water fast today. I am going to try something new. What I have learned so far is the following:

Juice fasting works and you lose weight very quickly. I lost anywhere between 2-3.5 lbs per day. Hunger is supressed or disappears by the end of the third day. Detox experience comes with little side effects and is more mild than a water fast. You don't feel as weak juice fasting as you do with water fasting. Weight gain will be 25% - 50% if you eat clean and limit the quality and portion of your servings. Weight gain will be 100% within a week if you don't control portion or the type of food consumed. Juice fasting works best when you have prepared your body by eating clean for 2 weeks before starting your fast if you don't regularly consume alcohol, drugs, tabbaco, or coffee. Four weeks is recommended if you consumed any the above from an extended period of time. Eating clean means no processed sugars, saturated and trans fats, coffee, tobacco, alcohol, soda, refined flour(breads, pastas, etc.), red meat, reduced consumption of chicken. If taking medications, consult your physcian prior to starting a juice fast.

Water fasting works and you will lose weight very quickly. I lost anyhere between 1.5-3.0 lbs. per day. Hunger is supressed and disappears by the third day. Side effects I experienced were mild headache, dizziness and feeling weak. The detox can be more intense, but after 2 months of clean eating and juice fasting, my detox on a water fast was more mild than it otherwise would have been. Weight gain will be 25% - 50% if you eat clean and limit the quality and portion of your servings. Weight gain will be 100% within a week if you don't control portion or the type of food consumed.

If taking medications, consult your physcian prior to starting a juice fast. Try juice fasting first, then move on to water fasting.


Intermittent fasting is a viable alternative to juice fasting and water fasting. I have not done it yet, but plan to try it after completing my next eating and exercise phase. The basic premise of juice fasting is as follows:

Start your fast at 6:00 p.m. on day 1.
end your fast at 6:00 p.m. on day 2.
eat dinner at 6:00 p.m. on day 2.
eat a late dinner at 10:00 pm. on day2
eat breakfast a.m. of day 3.
eat lunch a.m. of day 3.
eat dinner at before 6:00 p.m. on day 3. start fast. repeat.

There are no apparent food restrictions or exercise requirements. It is even recommend to eat the calories not eaten during the previous fasting period. Weight loss is about 2-3 pounds per week. Scientific studies on rats show rats on IF eating routine outlived rats on regular diet by 30% and 800% in earthworm studies. Take it for what its worth.

Reduced caloric intake on non-weightlifting days, and caloric loading on weight lifting days.

I am going to try this for a week or so to see how things go. I noticed during my water fasts my arms were losing muscle mass. Some water fasting websites claim there is little muscle catabolism that takes place after the third day of water fasting. Some even claim that total muscle loss over a 21-30 day water fast would be limited to 1-2 pounds of muscle. I don't agree with those numbers. I believe the loss of muscle to be more significant.

I plan to eat 1000 calories or less on my non-weightlifting days, but still consuming 100 grams of protein or more. I plan to rest 48 hours between each weightlifting day. On weightlifting days, I plan to consume 3000-4000 calories, with at least 200-220 grams of protein. I know I will gain weight, but hopefully it will be muscle and not fat.
