I have decided to do a 7-day juice fast and now on day 4 thought it would be a good idea to share how it’s going and why the hell anybody would do this! I have heard about juicing for awhile now but never gave it much thought just blowing it off as another fad. But over the past year I have become very interested in the idea of using our food as medicine, so after reading “The Earth Diet” it seemed like a good time to start practicing what I preach and consuming only fresh vegetable/fruit juice for 7 days was a good starting point. My intention with this is to partially detox my body from a long history of poor eating habits filled with fast food, chemicals and all the crap that is so easy to love. I am hoping that it will also help me rediscover the joy of eating and ultimately the joy of living because these two things are intertwined more than I know and some would say our relationship to food is reflective of our relationship to life! With all that said I feel pretty good, am still living and haven’t completely lost my mind (though some may argue that point), I do really want a cheeseburger but I am staying the course and will see what the next 3 days bring.
