Coming Off a Juice Fast And Going On Vacation


Posted by Jnell on 1 year ago

Hi All,

I am on day 28 of a 40 day Juice fast. I am amazed at the results so far. Before I started, I was about 60 pounds overweight. With this fast, I have gone from 219 lbs. to 191 lbs., consistently losing a pound on most days. I hope to be around 175 lbs at day 40.

Day 40 is a Sunday. On Tuesday of that same week, my husband and I will fly to LA for a week, and then drive to Portland for another week to visit our sons. I want to enjoy my time with great cuisine, yet keep my weight off. I realize that I will probably gain 10 lbs., no question. I need suggestions for food choices that will be delicious yet keep my weight off. I also don't want to turn down a chance to sample local dishes that are not good choices in day to day life. I also may want a drink or two on certain days. ( I usually don't touch alcohol.)

I come back and go right back to school as I am a teacher. I plan on juicing for 3 more weeks as soon as I return. I feel amazing right now and am afraid of losing this wonderful feeling and gaining weight as quickly as I lost it. Any suggestions or information about juice bars and clean eating in Santa Monica and Portland would be appreciated! Thanks so much!

    I did a 31 day reboot last Oct (went from 178lbs to 149lbs). Shortly after I started eating (I'd say 3-4 months) I put on about 6lbs back on, then 4 more lbs after 8 months. You WILL gain about 5-7 lbs after you start eating but I did mainly raw foods (for lunch) and still juiced for breakfast & dinner . I put the extra 4lbs after I started drinking my alcohol again (maybe 3 times a week) and started eating (healthy) dinners at night. I was always vegetarian but about a month or more before I started my second 30 day juice fast ( I am on day 8) I went vegan so I am hoping I don't gain the full 10lbs again after this one and if I do, oh well. I'd stay away from anything that is white. I don't use white anything from salt, sugar, bread, rice, etc.

    I am going on a vacation soon. I started my jucing late because a friend of mine was having a graduation party so i decided to post pone it till the day after her party. I was orginially going to do a 30 day reboot, but i am also going on a vacation in a few weeks. so that lessens it to about 25 days or so. I was going to do a juice only cleanse till right before i leave. but I suspect there will be a few times when i eat not so great. and I was thinking of instead of doing 25 days to end at about 20 so i have some time to get used to eating and eat healthy stuff .

    Congratulations on your juice fast.! I just noticed you posted this a couple of weeks ago so the vacation may have already happened. Nevertheless I'll just give a shout-out to one of my favorite restaurants in the world "Real Food Daily" in Santa Monica. I could literally eat there every single day. Also whenever you see this post, I want to sing the praises of the book "French Women Don't Get Fat". It really puts into perspective just what you are wanting to do--enjoy life!!! It helps cultivate a zest for living (but here's the trick--for all aspects of life.) I think in the West we tend to be riddled with guilt and/or preoccupied with food. In myself I've noticed that after the Christmas holidays, I find that returning to a simple and healthy way of eating to be a welcome relief. So if we can learn to enjoy all things "in their own season" (like the French) we can find that elusive balance we all crave. Good luck when you're back in the classroom.
