2 Day Fast Results (Day 18)

Hello!!! WHOA!! Day 18! Already?? Wow! Time flies when you're having FUN right!!
As you know I did a 2~Day Fast on days 16 and 17. I drank the 2~Day Fast Formula from BeachBody and between meals, (the fasting formula) I drank pure veggie juice and/or pure fruit juice. It wasn't hard to do... as far as "hunger" was concerned. The Fasting Formula did a good job with curbing my appetite and with drinking plenty of juice, I was able to do the 2 days without any problems.
If you watched my video on day 16, you know I added the Fruits of the Earth Mineral Powder to my Fasting Formula since I'm Vegan and don't drink Whey. It worked out great. Will I do the Fasting Formula again in the future, more than likely not. Not that it wasn't good tasting and effective on curbing my appetite, but because I am Vegan and I personally would rather stick to juicing for some strict fasting :)
For those of you who aren't Vegan and have no problems with Whey... Then HECK! This stuff is great for you!! There are two flavors, Chocolate and Vanilla. I had the Chocolate flavor and is tasted pretty dang good!! :))

As far as my RESULTS go... I weighed myself this morning and was surprised to see myself down 4 pounds after only two days of fasting. I feel GREAT today. I've been keeping my meals very small since in the past two days my stomach has shrunk and I don't want to stretch it out. I've been drinking alot of water and eating fresh fruit. Tonight for dinner I plan on having a simple and small salad. Nothing too crazy ;)

Today's workout was Burn Intervals and Ab Burner!! oh man!! Burn Intervals is my FAVORITE because we use light weights (5 lbs) the entire hour and we do alot of cardio. It's an all around great workout and I sweat like CRAZY!!! ha ha ha...

I mentioned in my day 16 video that I had lost 0.5% Body Fat... I'm not complaining. By the end of the Burn Phase, I believe I'll have less Body Fat and will have a bigger number as my first month's result. :)

Awesome job!!!!! You are such an inspiration. And, for sure, doing a juice feast/fast is a great (and easy) way to stay hydrated, full of pure fresh nutrients, all while still losing weight.

Good job on your 4 pounds!!!!!!!

Hey Kristen!! Thanks for the encouragement!!!
I'm a simple kinda girl, so my juices are simply this: cucumber, celery, apple and carrots. it's simple, it's yummy and it works for me :)) I like plain carrot juice as well... but making it GREEN is my favorite!!

How about you? what's your favorite?
