I felt terrible. Yesterday, I was so tired, I could barely move. After having my Mean Green, I felt better. I stuck to water and fruit juices the rest of the day, which made me shake. My throat hurt and it's hard to explain the sensation...like I was so hungry it hurt to breathe. I don't know. I ended up having a piece of bread and five sweet potato french fries. It is ridiculous how much better I felt after eating so little. I woke up in the middle of the night because the pain in my elbows (wtf?) woke me up. I came upstairs, took some pain killers with water and had about another ten french fries. I began to feel better, so I fell asleep on the couch. When I finally got up for the day, I felt back to my old self. My three day juice fast is over. I had a piece of pecan french toast for breakfast, which took me over an hour to eat. I also had a half glass of milk. I am so not hungry, it's weird. I'm going to try to eat a little more and see how that goes. I think that, if I do the juice fast again, I will have to do more vegetable juices, as disgusting as they are. I just need to find the ones that I like and stick to those that way I get the nutrients I need. Juicing shouldn't make you feel like you're on the verge of death.
