I can not believe I did it.  But I did.  I have lived the past three days making juices from several fruits and vegetables (some of which I did not even know existed until now). Examples of vegetables I had never heard of are:  Fennel Bulb, Swiss Chard and Kale.  The others were more common to me like, spinach, celery, cucumber, tomatoes, basil, parsley, ginger among others.  The fruits I used are: pears, apples, blackberries, blue berries, clementines, oranges and strawberries.

I have to say that most of the juices I tried were very tasty.  The first part of the day was not bad, as the afternoon came, it became more difficult.  The only way to do this for me was during a weekend.  I can not work on juice fuel!  but I can certainly juice on a 3 day weekend.

The effect of the cleans is obvious as you make many many trips to the rest room.  However, the fruits, vegetables and water keep you hydrated and with enough potassium to feel relatively fine and with energy.  My purpose is not to detail the diet, for that I suggest you visit the Join the Reboot site.  That is the source I am using for this journey’s diet plan. My purpose is to share the journey which means more to  me than the recipes themselves.

Outcome of my three day fast was a loss of 5 pounds.  Not bad for 3 days!

The fight is on and the goal is to loose 20 pounds, lower my Cholesterol and take off a few inches from my waist.

I will blog about the rest of this personal journey.  I hope it can serve to motivate those who read my posts.
