I'm starting today. :) My plan is to go for 15 days and if I see good results, I will stretch it out to 30 days. Exercising like a madwoman hasn't helped me, diet supplements haven't either. But I got my juicer a couple of weeks ago and with just subbing a quart of green juice for either breakfast or dinner, I started feeling more alive. That can't be a bad thing, right? :).
I've also noticed that if I drink the juice for dinner, then try to sleep soon after, I get a slightly jittery feeling, which I interpret as little packets of energy thrilling my nutrition-starved cells. Lol
My sister told me yesterday that she will juice right along with me for support, but when I handed her a quart of freshly made green juice full of carrot, she balked at the "smell". Lol. She smokes, I don't. I really don't notice a smell to my juice. I think it's psychological because the color was a little brown, and she's a red-loving person.
I'm a teacher, and today is my first day of summer break. I decided to wait until now, because if days 1-4 get a little unpleasant, I won't have to interact with other humans outside of buying my produce. I can just nap.
I'm hoping that these summer days bring lots of fresh local veggie availability, because the stores pretty much suck. I can't even find spinach right now. Maybe I should put in some raised beds in my backyard and grow my own!
