268.  Now 2 full days under my fasting belt.  It hasn't been too bad, either.  I feel empty, but I haven't had severe hunger pangs.  I've been able to spread my juices out just far enough apart that I am due for another just when I really start to feel hungry.  Lots of water in between helps.

6.5 pounds in 2 days.  I've held off on exercise because I'm lazy and because I wanted to make sure not to overwhelm my body with exercise and fasting all at the same time.  After my work weekend the next two nights, I plan to start walking daily.

Work offers some challenges.  Obviously, I won't be able to "hide" the fact that I'm fasting even if I wanted to.  But, I'm going to be sitting, for 12 hours, and this makes for some planning before hand.  How do I take enough juice to last the shift, how much is enough?  When do I juice so that I have enough for work and home both.  Actually, this is probably easier than it sounds.  I'm juicing 4 times a day, so I just need to divide it right so I'm not starving at work or when I go to sleep. 

Day three commences.

What kinds of juice(s) are you making? Are you adding any supplements?

I love juice and smoothies, but it's hard to imagine doing just juice for a long period of time. I know lots of people who have done it and swear by it though!

I'm making a predominantly vegetable juice with some fruit for flavor. These are the ingredients I use and I make them different every time. I am taking a multivitamin, but that's really just to fill any gaps I might miss. I am getting LOTS of vitamins and minerals from the juice.
