7 Lbs in 7 Days

So, my mom recently finished 7lbs in 7 days, a 7-day juicing fast, and she says she can't remember the last time she felt so good!  She's down 13lbs and says she will never go back to eating any other way.  We've always eaten healthy for the most part, organic as much as we can, and lot's of vegetables at every meal, but she said she needed something to really help her change her body and how she felt.  This did it for her.

She got the 7lbs in 7 Days app for her iPhone and it told her exactly what juices to make and how to make them for the entire 7 days.  I thought that was brilliant and so easy!

So, after my mom and her best friend came to visit last weekend and raved about how much they enjoyed doing 7 Lbs in 7 Days, my husband and I decided to try it.  I LOVE juicing and have juiced as part of my morning routine on and off for about 7 years.  I think it's one of the best things since sliced bread, and it makes me feel a lot better than sliced bread.  
So, I thought, "Why not try it?  I've never fasted for a week, and I'm up for the challenge."

Tonight, my husband and I are currently ending our 2nd day on the program, and I thought it might be fun to try and blog about how I feel each day.  

Day 1:  Since I started a day late, I will briefly tell you that I felt quite good on the first day.  The juices tasted fantastic (not as fantastic to my husband, but he doesn't like veggies much) and I felt slightly hungry a couple of times, but nothing too bad.  However, by 10pm, we were both in bed.

Day 2:  Today, the juices have tasted great all day and for the most part, I haven't felt hungry too much.  Well, that is until my husband would remark about how we couldn't eat and then I would think of how great juicy chicken and a salad would taste, or when driving through town with the temperature outside in the 80's, a huckleberry shake!  Though, all in all,  the day was pretty good.  I noticed that at about 4pm on both days was when I felt the hungriest, and tonight, really for the first time, I have felt quite hungry.  I've been keeping busy to keep my mind off of the fact and made a hot cup of peppermint tea, which helped, but didn't solve it.  It's 10pm now, and I'm going to go to bed because when I get up in the morning, I get to have a freshly made juice!  Woot!

My mom says after day 3, I won't really feel hungry.  At the moment, I can't wait until next Thursday when I can eat a meal.  Ha!

We'll see how I feel tomorrow . . .

  1. Oh Cal, I hope your hunger is gone, because nothing is worse. But I had a similar thing before I went to FL (Not juice but only vegs, fruits, and meats) and felt SOO good! It gives you so much energy and takes off a little chub layer :) I hope you're enjoying it! Love you!! I was so happy to see your post!
