However, I loved this juice fast so much that I'd like to try another one in late April and May, after I've completed the Warrior Dash on April 24th. I would also like to extend the juice fast to 20 or 30 days. Why? Because physically, I feel better than I have in years! The juice fast has allowed me the space and time to focus on other areas of my life - my work, my art, my kids, my marriage. How did the cleanse support this? I'm not sure except to say that doing a juice fast slowed down my inner metronome and forced me to distill my tasks and interactions down to their essence. Everything seemed a little clearer and less harried.
All told, I've lost 13 pounds on the cleanse. Time will tell if it stays off or comes back. The weight is less important, though, than my new-found sense of focus and my heightened appreciation for the food I eat. The fast has also created a shift in my portion control, water intake and digestive awareness. Thank you everyone for your amazing support and suggestions over the past nine days! Its been a good ride.
