FOUR POUNDS! I've never lost four pounds in one week in my life, and for the most part, I haven't been too hungry. Remember Oprah brought out a cart of meat when she lost 68 lbs? Well, when I think of a pound--I think of butter. So I've lost 16 sticks of butter in a week. : )
One of the hardest parts for me with juicing is ... finding enough room in the fridge for all the veggies. And I need a plan. I've watched a number of videos and they suggest you clean and prepare (cut) enough of your veggies to juice for a week. (I make juice every other day--enough for two days at a time. It's supposed to have a fridge shelf life of three days.)
I'm surprised at how negative some people can be about the whole juicing thing, but I'm going to continue with it for a while to see what happens. Except for the work involved, I can see this as something I could do for the foreseeable future. Will I plateau like with a conventional diet? Probably--it seems like one always does. But I went in this more for staying healthy rather than just as a weight-loss gimmick.
So far, so good!
