It is time to kick start this weight-loss journey! My detox at the beginning of the year was great and I was feeling good and losing weight but after a week of calorie counting, a week of the flu and then Fro fashion week I have fallen in a hole. Well its time to jolt my body into shape with a 10 day Juice & Raw diet! Ive read a few blogs and articles describing the benefits of juicing and I think this is the perfect solution for me. The 10 days will consist of drinking fresh vegetable & fruit juices, at least 3 glasses per day, all the raw fruit & vegetables you like, minimum 32 ounces of water and a multi-vitamin daily. I will be taking the other supplements I normally consume as well (calcium, potassium & flax-seed) but you take whatever your doctor recommends. Remember I'm not a doctor, just a plus-size lady trying to get on track!
Black & Decker Fruit & Vegetable Juice Extractor for $29.99 from Walmart. It got some great reviews on Walmart's site as well as on Amazon so what could I lose? The next step is finding some juice recipes that I can stomach. I found a great site called www.myjuicecleanse.com it has lots of advice, you can keep a journey and ask questions. I will share this journey on twitter and facebook so please join in. We can help each other so lets get started! I will begin Sunday morning February 12th and the first juice I will try is:
Delightful Green Juice
1/4 green cabbage
