I was inspired by Joe and Phil's story. Have had severe chronic pain for 4 years due to a 1978 car accident. 4 epidurals, every pain medication under the sun, nothing touches the pain. 2 surgeons 3 years apart told me the operation to fix it would probably kill me and to wait until the pain became unbearable. After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead I figured it couldn't hurt to lose weight. Started juice fasting January 12. Immediately started craving fritos which is funny because i hardly ever eat them. The best way for me to keep the cravings at bay was to allow myself 1 dinner and 1 lunch a week. I implemented that plan after an 11 day fast in which I lost 12 pounds. Lost 16 pounds in 14 days. I really enjoy most of the juices (Tabbouleh juice is my favorite) and I drink as wide a variety of vegetables as I can. I am now 5 weeks in and have lost 30 pounds. A real bonus was the disappearance of most of my joint pain. the only problem is I am ALWAYS hungry. I can drink a quart of mean green and a half hour later I am hungry again. I wonder if this is normal, had hoped it would pass by now.
