Fruit & Veggie Fast: Day 0
Just so you know, things are about to get fruity around here.
In the past month or so, my wife and I watched a documentary about juice fasting called Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. It was really quite fascinating to watch two overweight and very unhealthy people dramatically turn their lives around by shifting their diet to solely fruits and vegetables.
They each did 60-day juice fasts where the only thing they consumed for 60 days was juiced fruits and vegetables (mostly vegetables).
The benefit of a fruit and vegetable fast for most people, though, is not necessarily weight loss...it's detoxification. It's a chance for your body to "reset" and clean out toxins from your body, among other things.
My wife and I will be doing a 10-day fruit and vegetable fast and I'll be documenting it here.
Today, my daughter and I went to the grocery store and purchased 2.5 days worth of produce. Lots of things I've eaten before and love, and other things I've eaten and would rather not touch with a 10 foot pole.
I highly recommend the documentary, and we'll see how things turn out over the next 10 days!
