I am doing the one day juice fast today. The juice is watered down unsweetened cranberry juice (just 100% cranberries), orange and lemon juices, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and a little stevia plus for sweetening. The citrus juices provide vitamin C, which helps the liver do its detox job. Cranberry juice is rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals on which the liver depends, and it also contains a natural diuretic which helps flush excess water from tissues and toxins with it. Cranberries are also high in organic acids which help regulate many bodily functions. And cranberries contain higher amounts of antioxidants than nearly any other fruit or vegetable. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger contain flavonoids which help regulate blood sugar and increase metabolism.
So far, so good. I am little hungry, but nothing too bad. I used to fast periodically from the time I became a believer until my children were born, and then of course the whole pregnant and nursing situation put an end to that. I just never got back into it while I was raising my children. So it has been a very long time, LOL. My first four days on the detox diet were miserable, undergoing caffeine and sugar withdrawal. But I have felt much better every day since then, with no more head or muscle aches, less fatigue and more energy. After today, there is a three-day post fast diet, then I am done!
