3-Day Naked Juice Fast - PART 1 - Details & Plan

Hello!  As I type this, I'm finishing Day 1 of my 3-Day Naked Juice Fast.  In Part 1 of this journey I will share with you the details and juice meal plan.  This is called the "Naked Juice Fast" because I will be drinking the packaged Naked Juices found at major grocery and health food stores.  I don't own a juicer and honestly, who wants to deal with the hassle and mess of it?  Not me!  If I'm really gonna do this, I need convenience! 

THE WHY: Main reason is to kick-start healthier habits for 2015 and to detox my body.  I am also hoping for a "body reset"--as I've heard it called-- which sounds great and will give my system a break!  Plus, I'm pretty certain my skin and energy levels have been affected from the less-than-great-eating from this holiday season.  That's where I'm at and I'm ready for some changes!  

THE DETAILS: I will be drinking 3- 16oz "meals" which will be Naked Juices and 3- 8oz "snacks" of 100% Tropicana Homestyle Orange Juice a day for a total of 3 days.  That comes to about 72oz of juice and 1250-1350 calories per day, give or take.

In addition to the juice, I will continue taking my daily vitamins, drinking plenty of water (I love slices of lemon & lime in mine), and drinking green/herbal tea.  The tea I'm drinking during this fast is Twinning's Jasmine Green Tea, Twinning's Green Tea Original, and Twinning's Camomile, Honey &Vanilla Herbal Tea.  The green tea will give me an extra boost in the morning and during the day whereas the camomile herbal tea will be drank before I go to bed to help me relax and fall asleep.

Other than the mentioned items, I will be consuming NOTHING ELSE.  No food, coffee and definitely no alcohol.  This is gonna be an experience!

THE PLAN: Here is a basic meal plan I will be following.

  • Morning: Water with fresh lemon & lime slices--about 16oz
    • Twinning's Jasmine Green Tea
  • Breakfast: Naked Juice "Blue Machine" 16oz--320 calories
  • Mid-morning Snack: Tropicana Homestyle 100% Orange Juice 8oz--110 calories
    • More water when desired
  • Lunch: Naked Juice "Green Machine" 16oz--280 calories
  • Afternoon Snack: Tropicana Homestyle 100% Orange Juice 8oz--110 calories
    • More water or green tea when desired
  • Dinner: Naked Juice "Blue Machine" 16oz--320 calories
  • After-Dinner Snack: Tropicana Homestyle 100% Orange Juice 8oz--110 calories
  • Before Bed: Twinning's Camomile, Honey & Vanilla Herbal Tea

Well that concludes the details of my fast, which will be ending on Thursday, January 8th.  I will be back on Friday for Part 2 to update you and share my experiences.  Be sure to come back for that!  This is my first-ever fast, so it's bound to me interesting!  Wish me luck!  Have a great day and I'll talk with you all later.

Love ya lots,
