My normal workday is roughly like this:
6:15am barre3 (no food or water beforehand)
8:00 breakfast of oatmeal or smoothie + black or green tea with sugar/stevia or powdered creamer
10:00 snack or juice
12:00 lunch (usually not good for me)
2:30 snack + energy drink
I'm not the kind of person that goes all day without eating, nor am I the kind of person who "forgets to eat." I don't usually like plain water--I prefer flavored water or infused water.
Here's how I did on the one day juice cleanse:
Arron said I could drink the juices in pretty much any order, but to end with a green juice (preferably Evergreen). He also recommended "chewing" your juice, because chewing releases enzymes that help with digestion and your body feels more like it's eating something. He said at the end of the day, it's easier if you avoid people who are eating. Funny story: the night before the cleanse, I had a nightmare that I forgot I was on a juice cleanse and totally ate junk food!
5:30am warm water with lemon (most juice cleanses recommend this). I started to feel hungry after this. I'm not really sure why--just maybe that my body is digesting something earlier than it normally does?
6:15am barre3. Felt alright just a little tired but not more than normal.
8:00am Juice #1: Evergreen juice (apple, celery, kale, cucumber, spinach, lemon, ginger). Tasty, but by 9:00am I was hungry. Got a little edgy overhearing coworkers talking about donuts. I sipped on herbal pukka "detox" tea (aniseed, fennel and cardamom), and kept looking at the clock.
10:00am Juice #2: Citrus Maximus (grapefruit, orange, mint). SUPER tasty... would be a great mixer. Chugged some water. A coworker ate something packaged and the sound of the wrapper totally sent me into--"WHERE'S THE SNACK?!" mode. After taking a minute to assess if I was actually hungry (I wasn't), the craving passed.
12:00 Juice #3: The Mint (mint, cucumber, pineapple, pear). The cucumber and pineapple make it pretty refreshing. Boss had me order cheesesteaks for the office for the meeting... glad I don't eat meat or I'd be having a hard(er) time. More herbal tea (pukka "cleanse" tea [organic nettle, fennel and peppermint]). More looking at the clock, and drinking water. While not AS hungry as I thought I would be, definitely still hungry. The tummy was grumbling loudly around 2pm.
2:30 Juice #4: The Mint. I felt much better after my juice. Like, actually satiated. Which is weird because usually once my tummy gets those hunger pangs, it pretty much wants a MEAL.
5:30 Juice #5 Citrus Maximus. I wasn't even particularly hungry but it was time for juice! I also drank lots of water since it was warm out.
7:00 Juice #6 Evergreen. Last juice of the day! I was worried I'd be starving by now so I had bought myself a salad, but I actually felt really pretty good. While I was cleaning up my little condo, a wrapper rustled in one of the race goodie bags, and I immediately felt compelled to see what kind of granola bar it was and eat it. It was weird when I realized how much of a habit just eating for the sake of eating had become. I assessed how I was actually feeling and realized I didn't actually feel hungry.
