So, how did I feel after 5 days and did I think it made a difference?
...those ARE the questions you were going to ask, right? Not, did it taste disgusting? Or, did you wish you'd never started this? :)
The reason I chose to try juicing in the first place was because:
- I wanted to see if it would give me more energy
- I wanted to see how my stomach would feel (I can have something of a sensitive stomach and have looked for ways to help that).
- And of course, I wanted to see if I would drop a couple lbs. along the way.
I didn't notice a difference in my energy level. However, I noticed a SIGNIFICANT difference for my stomach...it was really quite wonderful! Sadly, I didn't drop any poundage...probably due to my third meal. :) Blast those grits.
So, now what?...you may ask. Well, the reason I decided not to juice all three meals is because what I was really testing was to see if this could be a lifestyle change...not just for 5 days. The answer I found? Yes, I think it can! The most inconvenient part I found in this was washing my juicer after every meal...but that's easily dealt with. But, on those days that I just don't want to go through the process, there's a great (and yummy!) juice called Naked Juice. It's made from all natural fruits and vegetables with no preservatives or sugar added...but trust me, I would NOT be drinking it if it didn't taste good as well...which it does!
Well, there's my quick review of my juicing experience, and since I commit in small increments, I'm going to continue this until Ireland (with a few modifications)...and then see from there! But I'll be honest, I have really LOVED juicing!!
