I Did It! I Was So Hungry!

Last week I mentioned that a friend had given me recipes for a juice detox at the start of the year. Well, it was far from convenient at the start of the year.

This past weekend I was a guest at the home of a very good friend…and I ate so much lovely food. So, the following two days I decided it was time to go for the juice detox.

So I did it and…it was very hard. I just kept on thinking about food all day. I just wanted to eat solid food! The juices were delicious, they really were, and I did feel a little perky after the intake of so many vitamins. But I felt very hungry because I felt as if I was depriving myself of something bulky to sit in my tummy. Perhaps what made it tougher was watching Stanley Tucci on a carb-fest!!!

I am not really sure why I put myself through that. Nothing wrong with the juices, very tasty and I am sure nutritious, but I think really, I should have listened to my body when it told me it wanted something it could break down.

I am not sure if I was imagining it, but I did feel as if I had a slightly flatter tummy, but as soon as I started eating normally, the little round full tummy has made an appearance again. I don’t mind, it is all a part of the sensation which is moi!!!


Yes – that is right – and don’t you forget it!!!

I’m Too Hungry For A Juice Detox

A friend of mine recommended a juice detox for the new year. Six recipes full of vegetables and fruit, lots of vitamins and goodness. I do want to try it, I really do. I love vegetables. Only….

When I wake up at 5:45am….I feel as if I need coffee and something substantial before I leave the house for work. Then while I am at work….my tummy rumbles and I fantasize about my lunch. I have been making my own lunch – salad, or couscous, or pasta, or a sandwich, nothing sensational, but all more appealing than vegetable juice.

Which means that it is more likely that I will succeed in this juice detox if I do it when I am not commuting to the office. So….I wonder how Jack will going to feel if I tell him we are trying a juice detox?

Yeah….it is not going to happen is it!
