The first problem with juicing is that you have to buy an unbelievable amount of fruit and vegetables, due to their lifespan this involves a near daily visit to the local greengrocers, it is also surprisingly expensive. The second is the increasing amount of time spent in the bathroom!
I experienced my first real test to the diet today, my girlfriend Raushana’s mother and brother were visiting from Karaganda and it is the first time that I have had the pleasure of meeting them. We had agreed to take them out for a meal in a nice Middle Eastern restaurant in Almaty. I love going to that restaurant and usually gorge myself on hummus, falafel, bread, soup, steak and wine however this time I took a different approach. I felt uneasy about meeting the family for the first time and not eating, sitting there with a glass of water only. It is not the first impression I want to make, bringing attention to my weight and size, so I ate a Greek salad and a few pieces of falafel whilst drinking sparkling water. I tried to keep it healthier than my usual routine!
I still have a headache and am feeling shattered, I thought all this healthy juice was meant to give you more energy…still it is only day 2.
