Good luck Tony. I am getting to the end of day 7 now. Have had some ups and downs. Mornings seem to be easy all the way through until around 6pm, where I start to feel very hungry, but more so than hungry I feel empty. I haven't followed any plan other than just drinking juices to be honest, haven't bought a book, only seen the films.
I wasn't drinking enough in the evenings and realised I needed another Juice to fill the gap to take me up to 5 a day. So now have a rough routine of a 16oz juice at 8:30am, 10:30am, 1pm, 5pm (missed this out many days), 8pm. I played a game of squash on day 3 and was left with little energy going into day 4. I wanted to get to 7 days and have done that now and don't feel strongly about carrying on or stopping if I am honest. I do feel cleansed that's for sure.
My weight has dropped each day:
day 1 = -6.5lbs (although pretty sure I weighed myself after a glass or two of water in the morning on the first day)
day 2 = -2.0lbs
day 3 = -1.9lbs
day 4 = -0.4lbs
day 5 = -0.7lbs
day 6 = -0.3lbs
I am debating putting some actual foods back into my diet from tomorrow and still juicing twice a day. I want to start exercising again and haven't had the energy just drinking juices (I am also away this weekend and am unlikely to be able to juice as often as hoped). I think if I do go back to food I will add soups/salad, but continue to have just vegetables only as my diet for now (maybe add some nuts). If this stops working for weight loss, then I will jump back on the juices next week.
The main benefit I have found is switching my mindset. I need to eat a lot less than I was previously to still be functional and don't need caffine or soft drinks at all. I am going to use the whole process (hopefully) to ease back into much smaller portions (which is my main issue) and healthy food
