juice fast
« on: April 12, 2015, 11:44:00 PM »
I mentioned someone I know going on a juice fast and losing a lot of weight.  His thyroid problems came back and he gained most of what he lost back.  His doctor said his thyroid is finally back to normal, his past problems are gone, and he's going to go on another juice fast.  He was going to start tomorrow but an emergency came up today so he's going to start on Tuesday.  I'm going to go on a 10 day juice fast.  I'll post an update a week.

What kind of juice? I'm just curious and assume not all are created equal.

Yo, we need some details.

If you just drink fruit juice, that's beaucoup sugars and minimal protein, so that can't be it.
Someday, chi1dren, this entire fuck-up will be yours.

I mentioned in post I linked to the movie Fat, Sick, And Nearly Dead.  It's about a guy that goes on a juice fast for 60 days and loses weight and clears up some medical problems.  It's on Youtube or Hulu.  Look around, you'll find it.

Fit-juice.com is a site about juicing that has a bunch of recipies.

Here are the juice recipies he's going to use:

2 whole leaves of Swiss Chard
4 cups of leafy greens such as spinach and baby kale
1 apple
3 small beets



8 Kale Leaves
1 cucumber
4 Celery Stalks
2 Green Apples
1/2 Lemon
1 piece of Ginger



2 carrots
1/2 of a medium-sized beet
1/2 nub ginger
1 green apple
1 lemon (peeled)
2 stalks celery
1 handful parsley
1 tomato



He said he'll try others after  few weeks.  The second one is from the book The Reboot With Joe Juice Diet.  It's written by the guy that made the movie.  According to the book it has:

Makes 2 servings
Nutrition per serving: 251 kCal; 1049 kJ; 6 g protein; 54 g carbohydrates; 1 g fat; 0 g saturated fat; 2 g fiber; 30 g sugar; 128 mg salt


He drinks a glass, approx 12 oz, of orange juice (they juice the oranges in front of you at the store) in the morning, then 64 oz of juice form the recipes above, and then another glass of orange juice at night.  So about 90 oz all together.

...but 162 grams of sugars, by conservative estimate. I'm no doctor or nutritionist, but this seems kinda unbalanced...

It's the low numbers on fats that make it work.

Kale is pretty decent when it comes to proteins, so that helps.

So it's the end of the first week and so far he's lost 19 pounds.  He was 396 on Tuesday morning, the day he started, and weighed 377 when he woke up this morning according to his email.

04/14/15   396
04/15/15   392
04/16/15   387
04/17/15   382
04/18/15   377

So far he's lost 19 pounds.  He says he isn't hungry but really wants to eat something.  Like junkies that miss using a needle I guess.  He also said that juice tastes like ass and is the hardest part.

Though I know the intent of that expression "tastes like ass" I still somehow take exception since the few times I've had the opportunity I've almost always been delighted with the flavor. ;)

This morning was the end of the first full week.  Here'e the results so far:

4/14/15   396
4/15/15   392
4/16/15   387
4/17/15   382
4/18/15   377
4/19/15   373
4/20/15   369
4/21/15   369


You'll notice nothing was lost the last day.  On Sunday, the 19th, his mom came over and made dinner for his family.  She started saying he was going to starve to death so he ate a meatball to shut her up.  He said he took a massive shit on the 20th.
