JuiceFeasting 2010: Day 10

Wow, day 10 has come and gone. In a way it seems like it this experience just started, and in a way, it feels like I have been juice feasting forever.

I lost another pound between yesterday and today, and I am sleeping about 8.5 hours a night. I find myself wanting to go to bed earlier and earlier and wanting to wake up earlier and earlier. However, I am having the toughest time actually getting out of bed. I am wide awake, but loving staying in bed and staring at the ceiling.

This is a problem I had on raw where I was so lost in another world I didn’t feel like actually doing anything. I am entering that place again it feels like. I wonder if it is my mind and body being tired from the detoxing it is doing?

Food Cravings

I am having lots of food cravings. They were especially bad while walking because I smelled everyones dinner as I walked around the neighborhood.

I am not actually hungry. I don’t have any hunger pains. My mouth does miss chewing a bit, but it is not too bad. But I missed food today and not for any hunger reasons. I don’t knot if it is physiological, emotional, or an instinct but my mind keeps coming back to food.

It is a different food cravings then I have typically been having since raw. As supposed to wanting salty, high fat things like fries, I want pasta with vegan not meat balls and red sauce. This is high in carbs and a cooked food. But it is not really high salt or high fat. I wonder if I should add more fruit juices?

Juices

Today I drank:

  • 1 quart strawberry pear (2 pears and then enough strawberries to hit the 1 quart mark)
  • 1 quart carrot
  • 1 quart cantaloupe
  • 1 pint cantaloupe

Strawberry pear juice is way too sweet for me. Good for a sip or two, but was hard to drink a whole quart of.

Carrot juice I was fighting all every sip as well. It did not agree with my taste buds and seemed to sit very heavy in my stomach. It took me over 2 hours to drink as I literally forced it down my throat. I think I may take break from carrots for a couple days.

I was not in the mood for juice today.

Fruit juices also don’t seem to be grounding me anymore.

Exercise

I took a nice 30 minute walk in between rain storms today. I really love these daily walks, so I took a second 1 hour walk after sunset.

Walking around outside even though it is cold out seems to be the only time during the day I feel warm. Between getting out of the shower after a cold burst (the hold/cool shower part of the juice feasting protocol) and drinking 4 quarts of icy cold liquids, even bundled up in sweats and socks, I am cold a good part of the day.

Energy

Today my attention did not focus well at all. My energy was fine abet a bit low, but the real issue was I could not seem to keep my brain focused on anything.

I had the energy to do things, like talk a walk, but all I wanted to do was day dream or stare of into space.

Supplements

I took about 1 teaspoon coconut oil today and my B vitamin supplement.

I ate the coconut oil plain off a spoon, and it went down better today then it did yesterday. The B vitamins I took after 8pm because I almost forgot about them. I wonder if this will help my focus.

Well, I am about 10 percent of the way done with my juice feast!! I hit double digits. Amazing!

    Hey babe, will you make a post including the amounts of whatever ingredients you’re using in your juices for those who want to follow along?

    Also, what kind of juicer(s) are you using? If more than one, which are you using for what ingredients?

  2. Kat says:

    Also, what brand of cocoanut oil do you use, and where do you buy it?

  3. Adrienne says:

    Yes Kat i do that. I will write a post and explain in more detail juices, juicer, and supplements. I will probably do that at the 2 week mark to give me time to experiment with more juices!

    Thanks for reading :)
