I see no harm. I did a green juice fast for three days after getting a little too inspired over 'Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead."
And I had surgery recently where I got to choose between 2-3 days of clear liquids, or doing a bowel prep.
I chose to just not eat, and it was fine.
I find no harm in it and I enjoy cleansing my body. My friend and I were talking earlier about how ppl quickly assume you have an eating disorder
This is my post on facebook about Intermittent Fasting recently:
The science? Debatable. I don't think it'll hurt, unless a person is using it as a cover for disordered eating.
Pleasant? Not to me.
Necessary for fat loss? Absolutely not.
If it floats your boat, go for it. It's not a magic pill though. I'm proof you can lose weight and body fat with...wait for it...hard work and patience. Those are the things that will ALWAYS work."
I think it's the newest fad magic pill.
I have to do a clear liquid fast Monday for a test Tuesday, wish they would have given me choice. I don't want to drink this stuff.
I had two protein drinks and chicken for dinner today and always feel better when I eat less.
Well, I wasn't aiming to lose weight since I'm at a good number already, but thought it would be interesting to bombard myself with all of those vegetable vitamins and see how I felt.
I used mainly spinach, kale, cucumber, celery, a bit of green apple, and maybe half a lime to 'de-nastify'.
It wasn't half bad, and I felt..pretty good, actually. I would drink it 2-3 times in a day and I found I wasn't really hungry or craving food. I think the greeniness of the juice was a shock to my system.
It has evolved into making green juice a few times a week, and I like it.
I made my boyfriend a carbier version using carrots, apples, berries, some spinach and kale, and a lot of cucumber..a huge pile of produce in all, and he liked it.
It's a good way to make homemade juice without all the sugar and to sneak vegetables into those who don't usually eat them.
