As successful as our first day on the juice fast had been, day two turned out to be quite the opposite. Most people will tell you that days 2 and 3 are the hardest of any juice fast, but once you get through them, it gets a whole lot easier. The challenge, however, is getting through them. Breakfast juice featured kale, cucumber, red cabbage, lemon, and apple, and was definitely a little more on the savory side. Lunch on day two featured more greens with apple and pineapple followed by a carrot and beet juice combination. Thats right, two “lunches.”
One of the things about me that is important to keep in mind is that I have never been a three square meals type of person. I usually eat about five meals during the day starting with a small breakfast followed by a late morning snack of fruit and nuts. Lunch is also usually small and is followed by a late afternoon snack that depends on what kind of activity I have planned for the evening. An hour of cross training requires a meal replacement bar where as a 30-60 minute, moderately paced run requires something smaller like granola. Finally, dinner is usually a smaller meal portion as well.
