The First Bite is the Hardest

At 9:30 AM this morning I came off my juice fast which was 3 days. You could say four days if raw food can be included since I had a salad and a banana the first day. I went through lots of detox symptoms. I waited until later in the morning to eat because I just wasn’t hungry. I made orange juice in the juicer this morning. Then when I ate I had toast with coconut oil and green tea. To satiate my desire for food, I found an outlet in cooking for my husband. I even made him homemade ice cream, not even a lick for myself.
The above dish is oven baked french fries, topped with cheese, tomatoes, and green onions.
Sadly, I don’t own my weight. I step on the scales in the morning, and my husband looks and records it inside an envelope. He said I lost 5.1 pounds over all. My husband can eat and eat and eat and not gain a pound, that is as long as he works a lot outside, which he is always doing. In fact he stepped on the scales to find he had lost ten plus pounds. There is almost never leftovers in our house.
We even went to Starbucks. While my husband had his frap, I had herbal tea. I think that is allowed on a juice fast. Also, wouldn’t you know that they would be having the half price fraps now. I hope to take advantage of that one in four days, when I come off my dairy fast. I’m just not into soy drinks.
I’m really kind of sick of green juices at the moment. This was the juice I sipped on yesterday throughout the day. It had a variety of things, but mostly spinach.
