day 2 just wasn’t eventful enough to get it’s own post. it was a lot like day 1 except i was in the office instead of working from home. the night between day 1 and 2 was pretty awful. consuming so much liquid gets you pretty friendly with the toilet and when nature called at 3AM i drug myself from bed feeling like i had been beaten with a baseball bat. sore, achy, tired. no fun. the hunger increased as the days went on instead of subsiding. i was hungry most of day 2 and i was downright ravenous for all of day 3. i read the testimonials on the blueprint site to try to gain some extra will power but i think these people had their juice spiked with drugs.
– pros –
- i didn’t feel bloated or heavy. it was a slight “fresh” feeling that i can see would be appealing. but it just wasn’t awesome enough for me to get all excited about. for the most part i felt the same as i always do.
- i lost 5 pounds
- the best part was at the end i was craving fresh fruits and vegetables. this is the only point in my life i would have ever considered a vegan lifestyle. i just don’t have any interest in greasy tex mex or cake. i assume this will change eventually, but i have a new resolve right now to eat more raw, fresh foods.
– cons –
- this shit is expensive. with that damn cooler bag i was set back 225 bucks for 3 days. i can think of several other things i could have spent that money on.
- i was very hungry. the first day i was fine and enjoyed reflecting on why i was hungry and if i was really hungry and not just bored etc. but by the 3rd day i could think of nothing else but food. this seemed more like deprivation than a transition to a healthy lifestyle.
i’m glad i did it. i can stop thinking about it now and cross juice cleanse off of my things to try list. would i recommend it? maybe. if it were $100 I would suggest everyone try it but at $195 i just didn’t get that much benefit from it. if you have killer cravings for something you wish you hadn’t i say go for it. my success or failure with this will all depend on if my eating habits actually change or not. i will keep you posted.
