So the other night I streamed a movie from netflix, based on a reccomendation I read here somewhere. The move was Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. It follows Joe Cross, and ordinary 300lb guy who decides to only drink juice for 60 days while travelling the country. He ends up losing 80 lbs in those 60 days and seemingly fixes much of what was wrong with his health. He also meets some folks along the way, and inspires a 400lb truck driver to lose over half his body weight.
So I figured, what the heck, I can give it a go for at least 5 days, and see where I'm at. If I feel good, am seeing progress, and have good energy levels, I may extend it further, but lets see how it goes.
This is not really a fast, per se, it's just getting all calories from fresh uncooked fruits and vegetables and concentrating their nutrients into a juice so that you have room to take in the calories you need. Not somethign you can do long term without modification, but at my weight and the way I feel right now, it is worth a shot.
Now I love meat, and coffee, and bread, and crunchy foods so I anticipate this will be a bit rough on me, but I plan to document my full experience here so anyone who might be interested can benefit from my lab ratishness. I'm also hoping this may help my energy levels and improve my headaches which it seems on any given work day I have a 50/50 shot at a headache and a 5-10% chance of migraine.
So here we go. Day 1 and I'm starting off with juice made of carrot, celery, apple, and lemon. It's not bad, but I want coffee.
Physical: Sluggish (normal) Headache (normal)
