Day 1 of the Fat Sick and Nearly Dead Reboot

Day 1 (January 5) of the Fat Sick and Nearly Dead program was not too bad, except that I had a really bad headache by the time I got home from work.

I weighed myself and after I woke up and then had a half cup of the ginger/lemon hot water.

I made my juices for the work day.

Upon my arrival at work I had my first juice, the Mean Green Juice (MGJ):

Joe’s Mean Green (Green Juice)
Makes 2 servings
Nutrition per serving: 251 kCal; 1049 kJ; 6 g protein; 54 g carbohydrates;
1 g fat; 0 g saturated fat; 2 g fiber; 30 g sugar; 128 mg salt
Ingredients:
16 kale leaves (Tuscan cabbage)
2 cucumbers
8 celery sticks
4 apples
1 lemon
2 in (5 cm) piece of fresh root ginger

Throughout the day I sipped my water probably only consuming 40 ounces for the day.

I had my next morning snack of my take on the Berry-Apple-Cinnamon Bake, which was basically just blueberries and raisins.  I saved the uncooked apples for my afternoon snack.

In the afternoon I had my second MGJ and later ate the whole sliced apple.

By the time I got home I was so hungry.  I couldn’t even wait to make another juice for dinner. Instead I had a salad pictured below, made with Kale, Spinach, broccoli, grape tomatoes, avocado, and some cilantro. My dressing was the juice from half a lemon and a little virgin coconut oil.

I followed the salad with a few ounces of the “orange juice”:

Carrot-Apple-Lemon (Orange Juice)
Makes 2 servings
Nutrition per serving: 188 kCal; 786 kJ; 2 g protein; 44 g carbohydrates;
1 g fat; 0 g saturated fat; 3 g fiber; 29 g sugar; 58 mg salt
Ingredients:
4 apples
4 carrots
2 lemons

I only used a half of a lemon.  And I only made a few ounces to taste it and confirm that I liked the recipe so that I use that recipe in the next mornings’ juice.

My headache didn’t seem to go away and in addition that evening I felt super nauseated.  So I went to bed a little earlier than normal.

Are you juicing, or doing a raw food regimen?  I’d like to hear your thoughts, and recommendations below.

  1. Oh my god, my headache hit me like a freight train at 11:30 in the morning on the very first day! Apparently, I’m so addicted to coffee and caffeine I couldn’t go five hours without my body needing it! I had to make a tea and sip on it for about an hour so the symptoms would go away.
