3 Day Juicing Diet

Updated on February 21, 2014

After watching a lot of documentaries on Netflix about eating healthy and going Vegan, I decided to try a new diet for 3 days. I wanted to try Joe's Boost, which is a program that requires drinking nothing but fruit/veggie juice 6 times a day for a certain period of time. I chose the 3 day diet because I didn't think I could last longer than that. I was right, but I still wanted to eat healthy and see how it affects my body. I kept a log of my experiences over 7 days and here it is. Hopefully this will inspire some of you to give the juicing diet a try. Good luck!

Day 1
Since you start off the day knowing what you're getting yourself into you are more prepared. Your stomach is still full from the previous day so you don't really get that "hungry" feeling. I felt really positive about juicing and I felt fine all day. Drinking juice 5 times a day was very different. You are always at the juicer even when it feels like you just had some. It wasn't until just before bed that I started to get hungry. Even though there were temptations everywhere I just wasn't craving any junk food. I ate some Taco Bell the day before and it made me sick, and that's why I started my 3 day boost a day early.


Day 2
This is the day that I really started to feel my body detoxing. I had woke up in the morning with a terrible headache, and throughout the rest of the day I had no energy, felt completely drained and had to take a few naps. I was also very hungry, but determined to complete the 3 days. Despite feeling sick I stuck to it.

Day 3
The detox continues. My body was still sick on day 3 but I felt like I had more energy. I was much more alert but still needed to take a nap. I was excited that this was the last day of my 3 day juice boost. Even though I made the decision that I was not going to continue juicing 5 times a day, I still planned to eat only plant based foods. By the end of day 3 I felt really good and I had been sleeping very well.

Day 4
I was excited to finally eat some solid food. I had been wanting to eat the fruit instead of drinking it. So I decided that i would juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner and in between I would eat some fruit and veggies. This did help to reduce the hunger feeling in my stomach. It was nice to actually chew something again. Overall I still felt great, loads of energy, super focused and wonderful sleep. Also I had started to noticed a little bit of weight loss which boosted my confidence that I was doing the right thing.

Day 5
While continuing to juice 3 times a day I decided to try eating some whole grain bread as a snack. I made some homemade guacamole and cut two small pieces of whole grain bread from a baguette and toasted it. I spread the guacamole on the toasted bread and it was amazingly delicious. However I could feel the effects of the missing 2 juices. I was had a lot less energy and my mood was starting to drop again. But I thought I would get over it.

Day 6
Feeling about the same as the last day, I decided to eat some more bread and guacamole, since it was so good. Unfortunately I was feeling a little bit cocky about juicing and how well I was doing I decided to eat a small bag of popcorn. Bad mistake!

Day 7
Yep! Eating bread and popcorn was just too much for my body that was now used to juicing. I woke up completely exhausted in the morning. I eventually went back to sleep for several more hours. My head was feeling funny and I had no energy. I just drank juice all day so I wouldn't feel like crap the next day.
