Day 1 – the easiest and hardest of them all

When you fast, the hardest day is the first day. If you can make it to sleep, you’ll be fine through to the next. and in many ways you should start this way. you should fast on water/juice for one day, from wake up to the next morning, and then balance it with fruits for breakfast, with a juice of a smoothie, a light cooked meal for lunch, and a light salad before sunset.

If this was ok on your body (if you are of the skinny built, or what is known as Vata in Ayurvedic terms, please do not fast more than one day, it is not recommended for your body type. You can modify your eating, but you should eat something), try a 3 day fast, where you will discover that if you can make it to the third day, you will wake up on the fourth day with a lightness that is indescribable. You may even wish to keep going, but don’t. If you set it for 3 days, eat a fruit breakfast and follow the above eating routine for 3 days. Feel free to eat fruit, dried fruits, veggies (raw or cooked), nori (sea weed) for snacks throughout the day.

Then you will be ready for a 10 day fast, which will bring the whole cycle back – the first day will seem the hardest, but with the experience behind your belt, you’ll be ready for the fact that it seems relatively easy compared to day #2, which will seem like a bliss when you get to day #3, but suddenly, day #4 is a breeze.

None the less, it all starts with day #1.

And I am happy to say that I worked out my chest and back. Go Tony Horton for being able to do push ups and pulls up like a champion. Where they were doing 30 push ups, I managed 15, and where they were doing 15-20 pulls ups, something i could not achieve in high school, I had to use a chair to finish 10.
He says that it gets easier….we’ll see.

I did the ripper abX, and let me tell you, it is TOUGH!!!!! if you really want a work out, look no further my friend. Totally doable, totally ripable, totally enjoyable.

Thanks to my incredible wife I also had the best salad for lunch, but the dinner, oh my god my friends, the dinner was off the hook. Raw food can be your staple when you make this dish. Not too spicy, but will get your body in rythm, colorful and flavorful, and when you make it into a sushi roll with the nori, beyond tasty, I kid you not.
Easy to make.

Have fun trying – leave your feedback if you make it.
