Day 49 ♥ Mono Orange Juice.

Day 49 ♥
We had another beautiful time at the beach today, at Bribie Island which I have never visited before.
The water was nice and warm with few waves, so ideal for swimming in.
The sea air felt very fresh and energising. My lungs feel freer and as if they can easily expand more with being on the Orange juice mono diet, so deep breathing the sea air is a real pleasure.
I read some more of Dick Gregory's book last night.
He embarked upon a fast for political reasons and social protest, in his own words:

"What began as an act of social protest - a political act - became in the process of living it a "purifying act" - in mind, body and spirit. As my body was was cleansed of years of accumulated impurities, my mind and spiritual awareness were lifted to a new level. I felt closer to Mother Nature and all her children. I felt more in tune with the universal order of existence."

In 1970 Gregory went on to do an 81 day fast on distilled water. And at the time of writing of his book (1971) he was on a fruit juice fast until the Vietnam War ended.
So what began for Dick Gregory as a reaction against war, changed his health and consciousness for ever.

Wow, 49 days on Orange juice! That's so incredible Anne. Thank you for writing about Dick Gregory's book. It sounds like something I would like to read, so I'm going to see if I can find a copy.

Dear Debbie ♥
Thank you for your comment.
I am certainly enjoying the book so far.
Maybe your library may have a copy if you cannot find a reasonably priced second hand copy.
I lucked out with Ebay, it only cost me $7.
Have a Beautiful Day ♥

Anne - most impressive. I had read on a previous post your body fat was down to ~ 5%...

What is it normally?

I have read women should be 13 at the lowest.

Dear RawDad ♥
Thank you for your comment ♥
My body fat usually is between 14-16%.
I tend to lose fat, rather than muscle mass when I juice cleanse.
My body fat usually increases when I go back to a mixed fruit diet.
Have a Peachy Day ♥
