Just finished my juice fast and I’d say it was a pretty big success. I lost a decent amount of weight, felt great almost the whole time, and hunger was never a factor. Cleaning the juicer is a bit of PITA, but I’ll have more on that later.
Let’s look at the numbers…

Total Produce Cost for 10 days: $103.08 or $10.31 per day**

Total Number of Juices: 28

I’ll post some hints and tips that I learned along the way later.
If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.
*bodyfat % is a crapshoot. I don’t know how accurate those numbers are outside of relative to eachother. I used a BioImpedance Handheld device. Details forthcoming.
**Edited. I suck at math, apparently. Thanks Reddit user dcpeon.
