60 Day Juice Fast Results

For those of you who have been following my 60 day juice fasting journey from the beginning, you will have noticed a lack of updates since day 30, for which I apologize.  Unfortunately I was only able to make it to day 40 stopping 20 days short of my 60 day goal; here I explain what happened.

From my weigh in on day 30 until day 40 I hadn’t lost any additional weight, which was quite discouraging but not the sole reason for stopping. I stopped at day 40 as I genuinely didn’t feel very well. Muscle loss was starting to become apparent as I was struggling with physical aches and pains trying to do my everyday work. In general I felt much weaker and didn’t feel good like I had previously done. Although determined to succeed in my 60 day goal I felt that I had no option but to stop before I made myself become very unwell.

In total I lost 24lbs in 40 days, which is 0.60lbs weight loss per day. Had I stopped at day 30 this it would have been 0.80 per day. My original target weight loss had been 30lbs, so I came in at 6lbs short. However I am more than happy getting out of the obese zone to the overweight zone– Even though I am disappointed that I couldn’t complete the 60 days – I do consider 24lbs loss in 40 days a great achievement.

Having since analysed the whole fast, what I drank and when, I can’t pinpoint anything which may have caused the stop in weight loss or the excessive muscle loss. I had drunk as much a green juice as possible for protein and my juice and water intake was always consistent. I had been a little inactive taking time off from work in the initial stages of the fast – whether this could have attributed to the issue or not – I am not sure.

I can only really conclude that it’s possible that I embarked on too long of a fast for my total weight and what I needed to lose.  It’s fairly obvious that my body had gone into starvation mode and was burning muscle as opposed to fat  - This is something that does happen to everyone while fasting – but just to a varying degree. In hindsight I would have added protein rich spirulina into my juices, which could have possibly helped.

The Future:

I am currently maintaining a stable weigh of 176 lbs, which is the same weight I was at day 40 when I ended my fast. I do plan to start another juice fast in the near future, however I am going to aim for a much shorter goal of around 21–30 days.  Ideally I would like to lose a further 24lbs taking me to a healthy weight and BMI for my height.

Exciting News
