{Day 7} My 7 Day Juice Fast Journey

Day 7 My 7 Day Juice Fast Journey is the first day of a weeklong journey in which blogger, Simply LaKita will fuel her body with nothing but fresh juice.

Today is Sunday and Day 7 of my 7-Day Juice Fast Journey.

I am so excited that I have made it and basically survived 7-days on only water and fresh juice. I am so proud of myself and it feels good to have completed this journey. I feel great and I am getting the best sleep of my life right now. My body is still experiencing the coated tongue, but I know that is only because my body is still detoxing through the many layers of my unhealthy eating over the years. Some other changes that I have noticed are that I have tons of energy throughout the day and my stomach is much flatter, which I love. I also lost a total of 6 lbs. during the week of my 7-day juice fast.

I began this 7-day juice fast journey because I want to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet as well as become much healthier overall. However, I feel so good right now I will be continuing on my juice fast for as long as I can handle it. I have chosen not to put an end date on the fast because I want to continue it as long as my body allows me to. I will update my blog with a post once a week to let you know how it is going. I thank you so much for your support 🙂

Today my family had a big Sunday dinner because I had family in town from another state and I am happy to report that I did not eat anything…and let me tell you everything looked so good. Instead, I brought my juice with me and made sure that I was satisfied (not hungry) before I arrived, so I would not be tempted. Even though it was the last day of my fast I seriously doubt I would have broken it the last few hours anyway (too close).

So…Why begin a 7-day juice fast anyway?

That is a really good question. I began the 7-day juice fast because I want to make a change in my life, so I knew that I had to do something different in order to achieve that. I also figured that a fast would give me/my body a chance to heal itself a little from some of the damage that I had done to it in the past. After taking in juice and water for 7 days, going through the detox symptoms, I do not want to put any junk back into my body.
As a treat to myself for completing my 7-day juice fast, I treated myself to a gift of an upgraded Breville Juice Fountain Multi-Speed. I will be sure to share some pictures later.

Until next time…

    Congrats to you! My husband is actually on a juice fast right now, which is why your title appealed to me out of the several SITS Sharefest links. I admire his determination and self care. And you too!
