The past two days has felt as though I am eliminating something. My body fat is still reducing (it was 10% when I measured it today). So I feel that it could be some stored toxins that are being released as my body fat is released.
I marvel at how wise the body is in storing anything harmful away from the vital organs, and in the place that the body deems least harmful.
I often get asked, 'What could you possibly have left to eliminate', when people see that I am on a mono juice diet.
I reason that my body had 24 years of eating cooked foods, 14 years of taking allopathic medicines, X-rays when I was in utero and as a child (I had a heart murmer), 20 years of eating dairy, and no years of taking breast milk.
Also I am not an island, I live in a world of farmers who spray their crops, of cars and vehicles which emit exhaust pollutants, of household chemicals and personal deoderants (I only use natural house cleaners but come into contact with other households), of people who spray weedkillers on the paths where I walk, and a whole host of other environmental toxins to which I am daily exposed.
As I say, I am not an island and unless I go and live on one in the middle of the Pacific Ocean then I will still be absorbing a certain amount of toxins daily.
Another factor is that I have never taken a fast or mono diet to completion.
By this I mean to the point where the tongue is perfectly clean.
I feel that I came close in 1995 with my 52 day Orange juice diet. But I have always broken the diet ot fast before this point.
Maybe it is the deepest stored toxins that are the last to come out.
Having said this I still have lots of energy and feel good.
I generally wake between 4am and 5am and am ready to jump out of bed (and start typing my diary from the day before!) My exercises are easier to do than 'normal' and I sleep the best and the most soundly, but need less sleep than usual.
So I am not sure how long I will carry on. I feel like I would like to reach the 40 day mark. The Mangoes on our trees are getting perfectly ripe now, so I feel that they would make a great juice-breaker ♥
Also Queensland Rambutans are coming in, so they are one of my favourites and fresh jammy Figs will soon be in season. So I will have a wealth to choose from when I finish the mono-diet.
