What a Typical Day's Intake Looks Like

So in order to get enough nutrient and calories, careful planning to variety and daily tracking in a webtool like Cron-o-meter has been essential. Todays' intake didn't include a green drink (yet, I may have one later) and that will bring me at about 100% of my RDA's for vitamins and minerals, but here's a break down of the juice ingredients that I drank today:

1 Beet
2 apples
6 carrots
1 lemon

Ran for 1/2 hour

Juice @9am:

6 carrots
1/2 butternut squash
3 oranges

927 calories so far

2 CAB's (Carrot, Apple, Beet) not at the same time, I was at work and couldn't record these until later.
12 carrots
1 beet
1.5 lemon
4 apples

1608 cals so far

Juice at 7:30pm:

1/2 butternut squash
3 oranges
6 carrots

2026 calories

I have found that if I don't get in at least 2000-ish cals a day that I'm grumpy and tired and irritable. That seems to be the minimum. I am on my feet all day and have also been doing weight training and I added in running today which I noticed made me hungrier.

So, these are the juices I've been doing daily. Later I might do romaine, celery, cucumber, broccoli and green apple with some strawberrie. All the greens really add in some nutrients like iron, sodium and magnesium that are so important to our health.

Hope this helps give you some idea as to how to do this successfully.

Take care juicy peeps. Juice on. I am on day 8 and tomorrow is my last day in the single digits for a long while. :)
