I actually had my first juice last night, but I had also had a lot of other food, so today is really my first day of only juice. For breakfast I had a mostly fruit juice since I wasn’t yet fully awake and thought too many vegetables might be a little hard to take in the morning. It tasted great, and after I did a calorie count I realized that one full glass of fruit juice was only about 150 calories.

If you are wanting to go on a diet, juicing is an amazing way to cut calories. Morning juice was as follows.

  • 1/2 white grapefruit
  • 1 orange
  • 1 large cherry tomato
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3 leaves of lettuce
  • 1/2 lemon

For lunch I went a little more heavy on the greens. Things like cabbage and mushrooms.  I was worried about how strong the taste was going to be, but I went a head with it anyways. To be honest it wasn’t great tasting, but it was still edible. Not something you savor the taste of, but I was able to get it down no problem, and I didn’t feel it was the worst thing I had ever had either. I can definitely do this for 7 days.

Lunch consisted of the following.

  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 large cherry tomatos
  • 1/5 of a carrot
  • 1 shitake mushroom
  • 3 leaves of lettuce
  • 1 stem of broccoli
  • 3 large leaves of cabbage
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • a handful of blueberries

All together that is about (maybe less than) 300 calories. The same as a breakfast when I am dieting. I am currently loading a video on Youtube and will post it up shortly. As I mentioned earlier I am speaking Japanese, but it’s just juicing so shouldn’t be a big deal.

After lunch juice. This one was really good, but a little citrusy. Adding an apple or some strawberries would have been a good idea.

 

  • 1/2 grape fruit
  • 1 orange
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 small tomato
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 gauva
  • handful of blueberries
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 lemon

I will still have one or two more to go for today, and will definitely be way down on calories.

Once again, if you are also a juicer or someone interested, please leave a comment below. I would love to hear about your experiences, and will be glad to answer any questions I can as well.
