We at Eat The Sunlight are believers in fruit feasting and in this article by Linda Wagner it goes over some of the benefits of fruit feasting.
This is termed a ‘FEAST’ rather than ‘FAST’ because one gets ALL the calories one would normally get in a day (i.e. 1500 for an average woman) – from at least 4 litres/1 gallon of fresh juice, daily (green vegetable juices, fruit juices and coconut water all included). Often when people fast they take in very small amounts of liquid/calories, the metabolism slows, their energy slumps, and they may feel quite ‘dysfunctional’. Juice Feasting works differently, supporting the feaster to be very functional in daily life and meeting all calorie needs, while experiencing massive cleansing on a cellular level. – source
There are SO many reasons why juicing is so beneficial, here are just a few:
With all of those benefits, how could you NOT do a juice feast?! I know what you’re thinking, “I could NEVER do that“! Let me tell you, my friend is doing the 10 day juice feast with me and he is a fast food loving, pizza eating, beer guzzling, mexican food loving south Texas boy. If he can do it, YOU CAN DO IT. Seriously, take my word on this!!
If you need more inspiration, check out the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead streaming live on Netflix. It will be all the inspiration you need!
Here’s a delicious recipe that you can try. It’s not only delicious, it also helps eliminate pesky cellulite. Behold, the Cellulite Buster!
Run all ingredients through a juicer (I recommend Breville) and enjoy! (Makes 16oz)
Here’s a snapshot of the juice delivery I made for my friend. The large gallon jug is my favorite green lemonade and the small orange containers are called Dreamsicle.

So basically I am just guzzling green juice all day, every day, for 10 days. So far I feel great! Other than the occasional craving, it’s been smooth sailing. One thing that juice feasting will do is help you to realize and identify your emotional ties to food. I’m never physically hungry, I just feel like eating because I am bored, cold, procrastinating, stressed, etc. It’s a really good experiment for anyone looking for a cleanse and to develop a deeper connection with the mind/body. I’m also doing regular colonics which really helps to keep detox symptoms at bay. I’ll be posting more about my experiences as the feast goes on. Feel free to ask questions if you’ve got em! 🙂
Have any of you ever done a juice feast or fast? If so, how did it go? For those of you who are juicing, what are your favorite juice recipes? I love hearing from you guys!!
PLEASE NOTE: Juice feasting/fasting/cleansing is a pretty major undertaking, and you should consult with a qualified health practitioner before throwing yourself into one. Do not use this post as your sole reference! Taking care of your body means doing it in a responsible way, being educated about the choices you are making, and taking small steps towards something greater.
We believe in fruit feasting. While you are on your fruit feast, we recommend also using the daily cleanser. It is very important towards the support of your feast. You can find out more about the daily cleanser here.
