Juice Fast Day 12

27 Apr

I’m at the end of day 12 and yesterday I started my insulin again..that was a smart thing to do…My sugars were back to normal by the time I went to bed last night and have been in or near the normal range today. I’m feeling much better.

I ventured out today (I’ve been a home-body throughout much of this process-especially when my sugars were high) to a festival in downtown Fayetteville where my husband played trumpet with his Brass Quintet from work. They were fantastic! And I got to see a number of people I haven’t seen for a while which was nice. People I saw who have been keeping up with me on Facebook were so encouraging about my juice fast. That felt really great.

Speaking of my husband, he has been so supportive throughout my detox and juice fast. He is even drinking a juice every day! He’s also incorporated smoothies into his diet and when I was preparing raw meals, he joined me for them so I would not have to make him something different. That was super helpful…he also put up with quite a bit. Day 4 of my Raw Reset I woke up CRAVING (craving like I would have scratched someone’s eyes out to get some) eggs…I came out into the kitchen and he had just put some turkey bacon in a pan to make himself bacon and eggs…I made it clear, in no uncertain terms that there was absolutely no way I could handle him making eggs that day (for some reason the day before when he made them, it wasn’t a problem). He was so understanding and put everything away.  Support during this process is a must.  Thankfully, my husband goes above and beyond.  I couldn’t ask for a better support system 🙂  After I had my morning juice, I felt much better-as in I suddenly knew that I could handle eggs being cooked in my kitchen…apparently that juice had a bunch of iron in it (from beets & greens)…guess I needed extra iron that day;)  He had already decided that he would have a smoothie that morning.

I also had a fantastic conversation with a Nancy, who is a friend on Facebook (where would we be without Facebook?) that I met on a Whole Foods message board when we first moved to NC nearly 2 years ago.  Turns out she is a nutritional consultant who kicked diabetes without ever going on meds.  She had some great insight and ideas that I can incorporate now, as well as some I’m not quite ready for but will keep in mind for down the road.

Well, that’s all for day 12…which has now turned into day 13…but it won’t really be day 13 until I wake up right?  Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

      She recommended a candida cleanse and adding digestive enzymes….she also suggested cutting out all fruit for a year…that’s the part I’m not so sure about yet

    Hey friend! I love the ideas of more fresh fruits and veggies. We’re big fans here. Good job on sticking with your plan. I bet you will see amazing things happen because of it. Have you seen the documentary Sick Fat and Nearly Dead? I saw it a few years ago and it was amazing to watch his transformation and all the added health benefits he got from doing a juice fast. I have no doubt Americans are “sick” because of all the processed foods, hydrogenated oils, dyes, and over use of corn (HFCS) in our diets…to name a few. I’m excited to follow your journey here. Keep up the great work! Oh and kudos to your hubby for being so supportive!

      Thanks Erin! I did see that movie and thought about doing a juice fast when I saw it a year or so ago but didn’t quire have the motivation to do it. However the 21 day raw reset included juicing as part of their program so I started there and am continuing. I know your family likes flash foods…I remember Jude getting excited over tomatoes when he was two;)

    I am so glad you are sharing your journey. May the Lord continue to be your strength as you continue on the path to physical healing and overall better health. So blessed to have a support system which includes a wonderful hubby. Keep it up Troye. I know this is possible for you 🙂

    Much love and support,
