Juicing Adventure: Day 6

Day 6 of my Juicing experiment has come and gone like the wind!  (haha if you live in Nebraska right now, you will get that one!)  It started off as an early morning with a nice big vitamix full of juice!  I made an extra big batch since I knew it would be a while until my second juice.  Keep in mind one blender of juice can make 3-5 cups of juice and this one was 5.  The added perk of day 6 is that I could add protein.  Exciting!  I blended my juice in some almond milk and added protein powder at the end (when I usually add the ice).  A little tip on why I add the protein at the end, after everything is blended up---it's better to do it this way because the protein molecules can breakdown if over blended.  Also it makes it less foamy.

I was very satisfied after this shake and wasn't hungry all day at work (from 7-2).  I sipped on tea all day at work (hot green tea).  I prefer squeezing half a lemon in my water or tea that I drink all day, especially during this juicing adventure.  I ended up eating a few carrots during the day and a few pieces of deli turkey right when I woke up (6am).  I will not be eating any other protein sources than protein powder and eggs/egg whites (2 egg yolks allowed for women per day).  The turkey tasted SO salty after 5 days of no food.  I knew our food was full of sodium but holy cow!!!

I made my second batch of juice around 6pm and made it with coconut water and protein powder this time.  The taste is a little to get used too.  Im not sure how to explain it, maybe it is just sweeter than I am used to the last 5 days.  This vitamix batch was about 4-5 cups, so I got my 10 cups in today.  Thank Goodness!  The last few days were hectic and I missed my juice!  I boiled about 10 eggs to start eating now and will have 2 shortly.  I am sure they will taste heavenly!  I will peel them and have them ready to eat in a zip loc.  

Results after 6 days:  I am feeling great!  I am more energetic, less hungry and not wanting to eat out at all--actually a little repulsed by the idea at this point.  My shoulders and knees have not bothered me the last few days.  Remember that is one of the main reasons I am doing this--to reduce inflammation in my joints.  I am focused on finishing my 3 weeks and really excited about the possible outcomes.  I am hoping that after 3 weeks I will want to continue (with protein of course!).  Another benefit of this juicing adventure---I've lost 8 pounds in 6 days!  Not too shabby of a side affect!  

Talk to ya tomorrow!
