    Notes: This was the first day that I thought, you know what, this sucks. I’m thinking about soo much great food that I could be having and I had a lunch meeting downtown that I avoided so I didn’t have to drool over solid food. I’m a trooper though and since this is so early on in the experiment I know that this is my first urge to resist. I’m going to fight it off with a smile and try not to think about real food. A big part of the urge could be coming from the decadent tasting but marginally prepared meal I had last night. Tonight’s dinner is going to be amazing so I know the next few days of just juice is really going to test me.

    Day 4:
    Breakfast, Mean Green (16 oz)
    Snack, Protein Shake
    Lunch, Shot of Body Effects, Protein Shake (69 g)
    Snack, Banana, Mean Green (7 oz)
    Dinner,

    Notes: Last night hit me pretty hard, I realized that I just wasn’t getting enough calories nor the proper nutrition I need for my life style. I decided to modify the experiment quite a bit.. I am not going to starve myself and try and only live off fruits and vegetables but instead continue to infuse my body with them in combination of proper protein, fat, and supplements. I already feel more alert, productive, and revived after having some protein and a small work out supplement. I believe the integrity of my experiment is still somewhat intact, since what we really are trying to accomplish is finding how providing my body with the best nutrition possible affects my mind and attitude. I sincerely believe that by filling the voids I had with nothing but fruit juice will do that.


    Since abandoning the Juice Diet, I felt it would still be important to keep track of my diet..
