juice fast... the good, the bad, the nasty

I'm on day 5 of a 10 day juice fast. I'm starving. I'm doing the juice fast for three reasons... Number one, I watched a documentary call "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and my interest was sparked. Number two, I've heard that 10 day juice fasts do wonders for your skin. Number three, it's good to detox your system every now and then.  I usually do a three day juice fast, but this time I decided to go with 10 days and see how it goes.
This has been my lunch for the past five days. Spinach, cucumber and lime. I cut the cucumber in half and peel it, then I peel the lime. I put two handfuls of spinach leaves, the peeled cucumber and the whole lime (minus the peel) into my Nutri Bullet (purchased from an info-mercial). Add water, flax oil and blend for thirty seconds. It taste exactly like a lime (kinda sour), but with a little more texture.
For breakfast and dinner I mix in tons more veggies and sweeter fruits (pears and apples) to make a "heartier" juice. I like the Nutri Bullet because it creates more of a juicy texture than a blender but creates less mess than a juicer. Nutri Bullet did not pay me to say that... but they can if they want.
The first day was the worst, I had a headache from no coffee and I was super hungry. The second day was a little better, but I thought about chicken bacon ranch pizza the whole day. The third day was about the same as the second day. The fourth day I got really hungry about 2pm and ate some Wholly Salsa with a spoon. Today is a little better, drinking lots of water. I will keep you updated with the final results.
