hunger level: 6/10. hungry today because i wasn't taking in enough juices. like i said, the heartier, savory juices make you feel full. i am craving salty things (i'm a savory girl all the way!) and healthy food like Luna's skinny wich rather than the junkier foods i normally crave.
weight loss: 1 lb
what i've had today:
- kale, grapefruit, orange, lemon juice

juice <--what?! ---see below
oh, i feel as though i've let everybody down! i felt light-headed and hungry when i got home and decided to have a salad from the thai restaurant nearby. i didn't eat much, but i ate! i guess a 3-day juice fast is a more realistic goal for a beginner? i did 4 days and the next 6 days seemed a bit daunting. like i said before, my juicer at home doesn't really juice leafy greens, so i was taking in mostly fruit juices at home when i wasn't picking them up at Luna's. which meant....lots of sugar! so i was taking in more calories than i wanted... the good news is, i got a taste for juicing! i definitely appreciate the taste a lot more now, the nutritional benefits, and the boost of energy a fresh veggie juice can give you. i would like to try juice fasting on a regular basis and build up the ability to go for 10 days. i also want to start having a large veggie juice in place of dinner a couple nights a week when i've had a hearty lunch--to help maintain weight and get those extra vitamins and minerals. like i said, they are curiously filling and satisfying...it's okay that i FAILED miserably this time, but i did 3-1/2 days, which is better than nothing, and i will try again soon!
