Sorry for the delay.
I had 3 juices on day 5. I had some of the green detox soup and an apple in the afternoon.
I went to a friend’s birthday party and was hungry, so I ordered the only pseudo healthy thing on the menu…Glazed carrots.
I’m not sure what it was glazed with but it looked and tasted like grease. So I limited my intake of those carrots.
I woke up quite early, not feeling groggy, but still not ready to get out of bed quite yet, so I tried to sleep for another few hours. I finally got up and weighed myself, only down one full pound. A little disappointed in that number since I tend to loose weight quickly when trying. But I started making my juices for the day. I made 2- 16oz (mason jars) of the “orange juice” and 1 -16oz of the Mean Green Juice (MGJ). I also added a scoop of flavorless organic whey protein.
I also measured my stomach.
I had a few ounces of the Lemon/Ginger hot water and upon arriving at work I had my first ‘Orange” juice.
I drank about 25 ounces of water throughout the work day and had my second juice, the MGJ for lunch.
I felt my headache from yesterday just waiting to return.
I also had a another repeat salad for dinner.
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
16 kale leaves (Tuscan cabbage)
8 celery sticks
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

1 g fat; 0 g saturated fat; 3 g fiber; 29 g sugar; 58 mg salt
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.
