7 lbs later...

The holidays are over and I've assessed the damage. I officially gained 7 lbs over the holidays, which is the first time I've gained weight in over 2 years. Needless to say, as soon as I found this out I immediately started kicking my ass. 

Coincidentally, I am in the process of launching a juice cleanse for Raw Generation. So last week I did a 3 day juice cleanse to start off. The reason I didn't write about it last week was because I wanted to see if I could actually complete it successfully before I go and blab about it. 

I spent Monday easing into it by eating a ton of fruit and not much else. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thrusday was all juice and a little bit of fruit to curb the need to chew. Friday was a few juices, homemade guacamole, and a regular dinner. **It's important to ease into and out of a juice cleanse for at least a day before and after. After the holidays were over I felt stuffed and bloated, which pretty much went away after the first day. All in all I lost 5 lbs and felt sooooo much better!

I didn't really have any negative side effects other than that on day 3 I was literally starving all day. No matter how much juice I drank or fruit I ate. I had read that this would happen on day 1 or 2. A few people asked me if I pooped everything out, and I have to admit as much as I was hoping this would happen, it really didn't. I mean the first day was a little more than normal, but other than that it was business as usual. Apparently, the detox magic starts to happen after you reach the point of feeling like you are starving but I wasn't prepared to do it any longer.... so, I'm going to do a 5 day juice cleanse next week to see what happens.

Has anyone else done a juice cleanse? Good results? Bad reactions?


  1. I've heard that day 3 is the worst... had the same experience with a 4-day water fast a few months ago.

    1. Yeah, it was pretty hard to get through. I want to see what happens next week when I get past day 3. I'll definitely be writing about that!
