♥ Day 67 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 67 ♥
Summertime...and the Oranges are sweeties ♥
I find myself at about the same weight as when I was at Day 26 of an Orange juice diet back in June 2007. So although at the moment, I have been on Orange juice for 41 more days, I have lost about the same total weight.
I also felt ready to end the juice diet in 2007, after 26 days, whereas at the moment I am just taking it day-to-day, and I am not sure how long I will continue.
One factor would be if I felt weak or lacked the strength and endurance to carry out my daily activities. Another, is if I feel that I am going into 'starvation' mode, whereby my body would be utilising vital muscle tissue.
So, I continue and I am still really attracted to Oranges and their sweet juice.
There is no other juicy fruit that I would prefer at the moment, if I was given a choice ♥

Here are some names for the Orange in other languages apart from English:

Italian — Arancia
Spanish — Naranja
Portuguese — Laranja
Danish/ Norwegian — Appelsin
Swedish/Russian — Apelsin
Polish — Pomarancza
Serbo-Croat —Naranca
Bulgarian — Portokal
Greek — Portokali
Persian — Porteghal
Hebrew — Tapuz
Hindi — Narangi
Bengali — Kamala Lebu
Kashmiri — Sangta
Indonesian — Jeruk
Filipino — Dalanda
Chinese — Tian Cheng
Japanese — Orenji

So, from its probable origin in China  the Orange has travelled the globe. It would have been a good traveller in the days of sea voyages and so spread across the world with the Romans, Spanish and Arabs. The Portuguese influence in spreading the Orange can still be seen in its Bulgarian and Greek names.
So, because of the Orange's common availabilty it can be loved and  enjoyed from Australia to Zaire ♥

Hi Anne, I've been working towards a low fat raw vegan diet for a couple months now and an orange juice fast is really appealing to me as oranges are in season and tasting wonderful!

Are there any tips, etc. that you have that might be helpful? Also, are you drinking water during the fast or just OJ?

Hi Anne, I know you have probably been asked this question a million times already, but how long did it take you to stop craving salt when you first became a fruitarian? Do you include any leafy greens in your diet? and, if not, how long ago did you stop eating them. and,do you follow Dr. Graham's recommendation to limit fat to 10% of total calories, or do you eat a lot of avos and nuts as part of your regular diet? Thank you for sharing your mono-orange feast experience with us. Blessings, Esmee

Dear Erin ♥
Thank you for your comment ♥
My main tips would be to eat the best quality, ripest and sweetest Oranges that you can find. Also listen to your own body and how the Orange juice is working for you.
Brush your teeth before taking juice rather than afterwards to avoid brushing the fruit acids into the teeth.
Getting a variety of Oranges from different places can help ensure getting nutrients from a variety of soils.

I drink water when I feel a need to. If I only have two Orange juice meals, then I may drink more water, or if it is hotter I may drink more also.

Enjoy your Juice ♥

Dear Esmee ♥
Thank you for your comment ♥
It probably took me about three months of straight fruit eating to stop feeling a desire for salt.
I do not usually include green leaves in my diet
But very occasionally I have had dill herb.
I never really included greens as a part of my raw diet, but was on a fruit diet from the beginning.
I do eat local Avocados in season, but very rarely nuts.
My fat would probably be round about 10% over the course of a year. As sometimes I eat no overt fats, but at other times will include Avocados in my diet.

Have a Beautiful Day ♥
