Rawlicious Juice-ing Day 2

In Uncategorized on January 4, 2012 at 12:51 pm

So this is Day 2, and I have to admit, after almost three weeks of high-fat, high-sugar and high-carb eating, my body is going into withdrawals. I have cravings for chocolate and I am getting headaches. I am not feeling weak and I know this is just part of the process, this happened to me before when I cut out all animal products from my diet for 10 days, I got headaches, and I don’t get headaches on a normal basis. Tried out both the Kiss (pineapple, organic celery and greens and banana) as well as the Sebby (coco water, apple, organic ginger, greens and banana) today. I have to say that so far the Sebby is my favorite and I asked Rawlicious’ owner, Joanna Lichauco about it and she said that if I wanted I could add more of my favorite ingredients (in this case, it was ginger). Although I’m still fighting off hunger pangs I stayed good the whole morning and I even weighed myself. From yesterday today I lost a whole pound! Problem is, by the evening I caved in and ate half a cup of brown rice, half a grilled fish and beansprouts mixed with broccoli and cauliflower. I know, still relatively healthy compared to the Christmas feasting but I did want to try going three days with 90% juicing. In this case it dropped down to 80% more or less. 😦 Better luck to me tomorrow, will try out the Tummy drink and see if it will make my tummy smaller, or at least allow for another pound of weight loss. At the very least I am giving my digestive system a bit of a break!

Raw is the name of the game!

Rawlicious-juice do it!

My three day detox diet begins. I overindulged over the holidays, big time. I’m not a heavy meat eater (although I love it) but this was just day after day of steaks, burgers, cold cuts, the works, not to mention the lack of green options as my friends, family and I indulged in everything that tastes so good but doesn’t do a body good. I remembered on my way home from the beach that a good friend of mine recommended a juice-ing service that was reasonably priced and great tasting. I’ve done juice fasts before, and they’ve been highly effective with JujuCleanse here in the Philippines so I wanted to try another service that would give me freshly blended fruit juices that I could take to supplement my lighter, healthier meals prepared at home. I called up Joanna Lichauco who patiently explained to me that their juices are made out of fresh and organic ingredients and seasoned with wild honey. They only deliver 2x a week and the juices only last refrigerated for three days so I decided to order 7.5 liters worth of juice to sustain me from Tuesday to Thursday. Lichauco suggested I juice up with one full healthy meal so that my body wouldn’t go into shock. Day 1 begins today, the juice delivery was a little late, so I was pretty hungry by the time it arrived. I forgot to read the instructions and gulped down the Xavier concoction (made up of organic ginger, pineapple and green banana) which is a no-no. The juices are meant to be enjoyed and sipped with love to benefit them fully. My afternoon drink was a lot gentler. I asked Lichauco to just mix-up the different juices so I would just “grab-a-surprise” everyday. So far, so good. Will plan my dinner tonight carefully around this detox.

Juicy couture in my ref 🙂

Let’s see what happens on Day 2!
