Juice vs. BBQ Labor Day Juice Feast (Day 4)

I completed the fourth day of the juice fast on Labor day.  Overall I felt well today and did not have any strong desires for food.  Unfortunately I got a debilitating migraine late in the day.  We were on our way to Jim 'N Nicks so that my family could enjoy some Labor Day BBQ when the headache reaching a tipping point and I needed to go home and go to bed.  Thankfully for my girls we were able to get some BBQ "To-Go" before heading back to the house; the headache may have helped me with the Juice Feast though as it brought on some nausea that caused even Jim 'N Nicks food to not smell good (unbelievable I know!)

Drank 6.5 quarts of juice today.  I would have drank more except for the nausea caused by the migraine.  (2 quarts green juice, 2 quarts carrot/beet/apple, 1/2 quart of carrot/ginger, 2 quarts of the Master Cleanse: lemon, pure maple syrup, cayenne pepper, distilled water).  Weight: 155.5lbs  (net weight loss of 4.5 lbs)

I've gotten occasional migraines for many years so I am not currently ready to attribute the headache to the lack of solid food (it is of course possible though).

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!  I am pretty sure that you enjoyed any grilling out that was done quite a bit more than drinking buckets of green and oranges juices!! :-)
