So...day 5 and I am halfway there...biggest symptom so far is the brain fog..wow..super hard to concentrate..I have to have laser focus to get anything done..but of course I do!!
Day 4 was a bit of a rough day..PMS? or just really emotional, not sure. I just was. Crying and nightmares and such, feeling blue would be putting it mildly I think. But I know from experience with this fasting stuff that its par for the course..."set sail and due north!" The captain said. And so I shall.
Drinking lots of water is soooo important through all of this because I know that my body is cleaning. AND DUMPING! It's all good. Lots of water helps my body to flush out the stuff that my body is releasing. A few minor symptoms? my own tongue tastes metallic, I stink to high heaven when I am going number two and my eyes are itchy and watery, none of which is normal for me. Even my underarms smell a little "musky". Also, all good.
No dairy. No meat. No processed food. Raw as much as possible.
Here is my dinner tonight. Today I just had the leftovers from my
guacamole plate for lunch. I didn't eat until 2:20 today because I was so busy and I really wasn't that hungry. Also good news and good progress. When fasting on vegetable/fruit juice your hunger should subside after just a few days. So that was day four, not bad.
