Personal Success

Juice Fast #1 Graph - 60 days - My first juice fast consisting of only vegetable and fruit juice, and water. I lost 47.30lbs. Here are the specific daily stats of information. Here is the free accompanying spreadsheet [xls].

Juice Fast Break #1 Graph - 14 days - I call it two weeks of sin. I ate pretty much whatever I wanted and lots of it. I ended up gaining 8.5lbs. Originally I wanted to do this for four weeks but could only deal with two weeks before going on fast again.

Juice Fast #2 Graph - 5 days in - After my two weeks of sin I went back on fast and within the first 5 days lost 10.40lbs and got back on track to my ultimate weight loss goal.

Juice Fast #2 Graph - 15 days in - To compare from Juice Fast 1 Day 15 I had lost 18.49lbs, for Juice Fast 2 Day 15 I have lost 15.20lbs - a difference of -3.29lbs. *note my portions are in the 4 cup range now instead of the previous 3.5 portions.

recommended juicers that I’ve used during my juice fasting as well as with everyday juicing:

Here is a picture of a Whole Foods Juice Bar. If you are lucky enough to have a juice bar next to you for when you don’t feel like making your own juice, or need an emergency boost.

Tips’n Tricks

Straws are freely available from establishments such as Starbucks and Whole Foods, and are generally thicker and longer than most retail store-bought straws perfect for drinking juices from larger containers.
