don't give up hope, however, you're not suppossed to be starving yourself- that's anorexia. you're suppossed to be cleansing and purifying your body. is that what this forum is about? just adults as opposed to young girls who starve themselves skinny? is this just an excuse- "oh, i'm juice fasting..." using those terms to cover up some disease you've resorted to? i'm not pointing this at you, though it has dawned on me with reading all these posts. anyway, with all the information i have read about fasting, really you're not in "starvation" mode until you have used up all your fat. don't concentrate so much on the day to day weightloss but the overall effects of your fast on your body. it takes time, no one gains all that weight overnight. don't give up hope though, stay strong and keep positive!
