Michael and I wanted this cleanse to be as healthy and as healing as possible to our bodies so we focused on using mostly organic greens. We occasionally threw in some carrots, apples, berries but it was mostly spinach, kale, watercress, green beans, cucumbers, squash and lettuce. At times, we topped this drinks off with ginger, garlic, lemon or grapefruit.
The first day I got up made my juice and after I finished drinking it my first though was, "What should I eat now?!" Although, the juice was tasty it was totally unsatisfying to me. That should have been the first flag for me. The day only got worst as I keep getting hungrier. A horrible headache came over me and left me feeling down. Meanwhile Michael was not doing much better.
The next morning my headache was gone a well as my hunger that was hurting me the night before. I was happy. The remainder of the fast was uneventful except that I was ALWAYS hungry...and I mean always! However, we made it through. Listen, as healing it was, I vowed never to do another "crazy" diet again. But I am sure Michael will talk me in to another one soon. Anyway...ITALY HERE WE COOOOOOOOOOOME!
