Juice cleanse: Day five; actual hunger

Well, I’m starting Day 5 of my juice cleanse

This morning I awoke around 12:30ish, but it was to make a bathroom run, and back to bed I went. I did awaken a bit later than normal, 4:45. I’m usually awake a between 3:30 and 4:00.

First Drink of the day

Hot Ginger root tea w/teaspoon of ascorbic acid powder.  Both the ginger and the ascorbic acid are great for the digestive system. One thing that I was concerned about, was not having bowel movements during the time I was on my juice cleanse. Adding this simple beverage into my daily routine, has kept me from becoming constipated.

Pick me up juice

  • 4 Apples
  • 4 Carrots
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 large Grapefruit
  • 2″ Ginger
  • 2 Habañero peppers

This was a delicious juice. The acid from the grapefruit seemed to neutralize the potency of the habañero which I must say was a bit disappointing to me, but perfect for someone who can’t tolerate the heat but want to receive the benefits of consuming hot pepper.

I usually add a lot more ginger to something such as this, but since my daughter was drinking some of the juice I toned it down a lot!

I’m feeling hungry

Around 9:00 a.m. I actually started to feel hungry, but that has everything to do with me not consuming enough of my fresh juice before I headed out to work today. What I brought with me, was not enough to satisfy my hunger. However, I have plenty of water on hand, so I’m making sure I drink plenty of that.

I’m not craving food

Currently, I’m not craving any food. Which is a good thing, right? I know I’m flooding my system with a variety of nutrients within a concentrated form.

What’s helped me with my juice cleanse?

  • Staying focused
  • Rereading passages from Reboot with Joe
  • Watching videos about juicing

I must say, that seeing others juicing, regardless of their reason for embarking on their juice cleanse has been an inspiration.
