What is Juice Fasting? 

A juice fast is a type of detoxification diet. A juice fast involves the short-term intake of raw vegetable and fruit juice and water only. Proponents of juice fasting use juice because it's thought to be a good source of vitamins and antioxidants.A juice fast is considered an extreme form of detoxification because no solid food is consumed.

Why do people go on a Juice Fast?

Reasons for undergoing juice fasts include religious reasons, losing weight and attempting to wean oneself from unhealthy habits, i.e., smoking, drinking soda, overeating, caffeine addiction, etc. Some more serious participants use juice fasting as an alternative to conventional medical practices, i.e., as a healing technique for pain, cancer, depression, arthritis, severe infections that failed antibiotics, autoimmune diseases and many other supposedly incurable diseases.

Why dowant to do a Juice Fast?

I want to do a juice fast because I want to quit smoking and become a raw vegan. I have such bad eating habits and need to detox my body. I feel that I am very toxic. I think fasting will give me the motivation that I need to begin a truly healthy lifestyle.

9:00 PM - Night before my juice fast - Weight 120 lbs

Song of the day : I kissed a girl-->Kate Perry

Happy Birthday to me! I turned 20 today. Yikes half way to 40. Mom and Ken got me a car (wow), my favorite perfume and a food processor. I cant wait til after my juice fast to try it. I wanna make some raw applesauce mmmmm. Dan will pay for my tattoo in a couple weeks and Gary called to sing me happy birthday and so did Lynne my boss. The only person I didnt hear from is Dad :( but I think he said he was gone camping this week so its okay. So Im smoking away right now and ate not so good food today and thats something you're not suppose to do the day before a fast. Early this morning I had a piece of birthday cake and went back to bed. Then for breakfast I had McDonalds pancakes and hashbrown. I had tacos for lunch and another piece of cake and then not long ago I went to Tim Hortons and got a bagel with butter and an Iced Capp. Bad Tamy! Oh well hopefully thats the last time I eat total crap. Today I read Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking and am gonna read the last few chapters before bed and then have my LAST cancer stick EVER. This is it, I am ready and determined to stop. It is my birthday and life gift to myself. I will no longer be a slave. I recommend that book by the way if you want to stop smoking. So first thing tomorrow morning I am going to do my first ever Oil Pulling with sunflower oil. And then just grab some lemon juice in water because I have a hair dresser appointment at 9:00 AM. I will drink my first juice as soon as I get home. I will not drink any senna tea before bed because I dont want to have an urge while getting my hair cut :) I will take the tea probably tomorrow night if I dont have a bowel movement all day. So thats about it. I am excited!! I hope I'll be able to sleep.
