|Carrot + Cucumber + Tomato juice|
The plan: Eat nothing but fruit juice and water for the whole 10 days.
I found that a vegetable fruit drink made me feel awake and energetic. With vegetable fruit juice diet, my body and tortured organ is given a rest. This diet does not only gives our body a new start, but help to lose weight. A vegetable fruit juice diet consume only raw fruit and vegetable juice and water only. Solid food of any kind is not allowed. Juicing for Health warn about this 6 symptom you may experience during vegetable fruit juice diet.
Time for juice!
1. Aches and pains
Elimination of toxins can cause tightness in some parts of the body resulting in aches and pains. During a long fast, some people are temporarily freed from arthritis and other constant pains that they normally experience. Headaches or stomachaches may be withdrawal symptoms from salt, sugar or caffeine.
2. Hunger pangs
Hunger pangs are worst-felt during the first three days of a fast. An water enema can help to quickly reduce hunger pangs and get you into a fasting state, as it ends the digestion in the colon. Once you get through the first three days, you will be surprised that the hunger pangs just disappear and you can continue with a prolonged fast rather easily.
Your stamina takes a dip when you are fasting. The lack of energy also means that your body is not burning fuel to keep your body warm. During this time, it is normal to feel cold most of the time. Keep warm by wearing some warm under-garments. Sleepiness is also commonplace, so take your time to sleep in and rest.
4. Bowel movement
Diarrhea is common during juice fasting as fruit juices have natural laxative effect. Elimination of mucus or dark stools is normal as these are elimination of toxins. Some people take enemas in the morning to help them ease the bowel. A properly administered colon hydrotherapy will also do much good when juice fasting for a prolonged period.
5. Giddiness or nausea
You may experience some light-headedness or nausea in some cases because of the hunger pangs. During this period, a lie-in might help if you feel faint. Taking about 3000mg to 5000mg vitamin C will help detoxify some of the toxins for relief (don't worry, you won't get overdose on vitamin C). You can also drink a glass of carrot and capsicum juice that will work wonders.
6. Bad breath and body odor
Bad breath is normal during fasting and body odor may also increase. But if the odor gets excessive, add alfalfa juice to your juice fast recipes. A white-coated tongue at the beginning of a fast contributes to bad breath, but is evidence of your body eliminating toxins from the body.
