I actually managed to finish my three-day juice Reboot with Joe and followed this plan. The experience in its self was quite challenging. I did experience some setbacks during the period and well had a more or less constant chocolate craving. I never found any beets (went to 5 stores) so that I just had to remove. I wrote a short diary entry after each day which I included below.
I had to go to the store and buy everything I needed in the morning. Oh, they did not have everything I needed. I had to just skip some ingredients the first day. The juices I had was:
Coconut water: (did not have so tried mixing water and coconut flakes – YUCK!
Lunch: Garden Variety
Afternoon Snack: Austrailian Gold
Dinner: Garden Variety
Dessert: Purple Passion
First day is done and I am feeling quite ok. During the middle of the day I got kinda moody and just didn’t really know what to do with myself. Luckily I have understanding coworkers! The only bad thing is that since I got back from holiday yesterday and the shops were closed then I had to shop this morning. And they did not have everything I needed so I had to skip some ingredients for today’s juices. I have everything except beets (which I cannot find in a store that’s not moldy).
Breakfast: Peach Pie Delight
Coconut water: Tastes ok
Lunch: Green Lemonade
Afternoon Snack: Pine-Lime-Lemon
Dinner: Green Lemonade
I feel like crap. The hunger feeling is coming and going, but I just cannot seam to focus. And I still cannot find beets anywhere which makes me want to cry. I cant really focus and stuff.. I was actually not able to finish my dinner today. but yea, only tomorrow left… and last night I got a cramp in my leg while sleeping, and today when I was going up some stairs I kinda missed the first step and ended up hurting my leg too – which continued to hurt the rest of the day. Looking forward to Thursday! And I seriously want chocolate!!
Breakfast: Un-Beet-Able (minus beets)
Coconut water: Tastes kinda good
Lunch: Joes Mean Green
Afternoon Snack: Pine-Lime-Lemon
Dinner: Joes Mean Green
Dessert: Just Beet It (minus beets)
I woke up this morning and I was so extremely tired. I did not want to wake up at all. I had such a bad night, bad dreams, waking up being to hot, etc. I also felt like I had no energy, and despite feeling like I would starve I did not have any food. Walking my dog this morning was so exhausting even though we took a slow and short walk. I was not able to finish my afternoon snack, dinner or dessert today. I just stopped being hungry really and I tried to force it down, with no luck. I did go for a short jog in the evening with my dog (she had so much energy so I wanted to have a fast pace, it worked – she fell asleep so fast when we got home)
I would say the first 2.5 days were the worse. My energy was down and my focus was pretty non-exsisting. I know this is quite normal. Did it help? Honestly – no idea haha! I started the first day after the diet feeling just really tired and really unmotivated. I was feeling so sick and did not want any food at all. I managed to eat some omelette for breakfast, and work in the morning, I felt like puking the first hour. Then I managed to eat a banana, which kinda helped. Then I ate another banana and throughout the day ate dried mangoes (I only found with sugar, but that helped a LOT so oh well). Hopefully it will be continue to get better in the next couple of days. I have decided to start going on a paleo diet. Just to check it out. I have just been juicing for three days so I do not really want to go back feeling like I was. So far so good – check out my instagram account for more details on the food I am eating.
