Hey, how about I drink only juice for 12 hours? I went to Publix and bought two jugs of V8 Fusion (on sale!) and drank them both over the course of the day.
I decided to do this because lately, I’ve been eating too many cookies and brownies.
I initially thought I’d do a two-day juice fast, but as the day wore on I quickly learned I would not, in fact, be able to only drink juice for 48 hours. Drinking straight up sugary carbs for 12 hours gives me a massive headache. And I missed real food.
The key to getting back on track after a few days of overindulging is moderation. The key is not abstaining from all real food. The key is eating smaller portions of real food. The key is making the decision to stop eating crap and start eating better. Right.that.moment.
So I did what any normal girl would do.
I had a sensible dinner of a pita, hummus and Havarti cheese. I went food shopping and bought ice cream. I indulged in a small amount of Ben and Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream.
And I so solemnly swear that I will never juice fast with V8 again.
