Obviously, he was on a mission to convert people to his liquid diet and he did his job pretty well. He convinced a few people throughout the movie to actually join him on this fast. He also convinced me.
Mind you, it's not hard to convince me into trying new things that involve health crazes. I've done a raw food cleanse before. I was vegetarian for a time. Vegan for a few days. I once gave up anything made from corn for Lent (after watching the doc King Corn)... that was very difficult.
So, obviously I had to try this juice fast. The next day, I went and bought a boat load of green stuff and the fast began on Wednesday.
Before you start to get inspired, let me tell you it's Friday and I've already failed.
Less than 24 hours in, I got the worst WORST headache ever. And it didn't go away for another 24 hours. Then I went to Starbucks.
I did a little research and it's suggested that you actually cut out a bunch of stuff like caffeine and meat 5 to 7 days before you start the juice fast. How typical that I read the directions after I screw something up.
Anyway, I'm just juicing once a day now until I can get my act together and get myself off the caffeine.
