Expect loads of energy on your next juice fast!
Upon rising (7:00 a.m.) - 16 oz freshly pressed orange juice (OJ)
Mid-morning (11:30 a.m.) - 16 oz freshly pressed OJ
Mid-day (1:00 p.m.) - 16 oz freshly pressed OJ
Afternoon (2:00/3:00 p.m.) - 24 oz celery, parsley, apple juice
Early evening (6:00 p.m.) - 16 oz freshly pressed grapefruit juice
Evening (9:00 p.m.) - 16 oz freshly made almond milk
This is just an example of how one can approach a juice fast. I don't follow a strict regimen however. I like to listen to what my body craves because that tells me what it needs. If I'm craving sugar, then I know I need fruit and I'll make an OJ or other fruit based juice. If I'm craving salt or sodium, then I know I need greens and I'll make a green drink. If I'm craving fat, then I know I need some almond milk. Basically, I listen to my body to make sure that it gets what it needs.
Somebody who doesn't do much exercise while on a fast may not need as much OJ as I drank today. But I put in a 2 hour workout and my kids keep me going all day long ... so OJ really fuels my tank. Today I drank less greens than yesterday. I don't question it. I just go with the flow.
For those who maybe don't know how to listen to those very subtle signs the body sends us to let us know what it needs, a good way to start is to simply juice what is growing locally or what's in season. Juicing a variety of fruits and vegetables is also key. Eventually, you'll know what you need to juice the more you get into the juice fast.
