Our Program - Since June 2001, we've had over 2,700 people in 137 Juice Fasts (thru 3/13)
There are other good fasting programs across the country, but most are expensive, “live-in” programs
which cost thousands of dollars. Our affordable 7-day Guided Juice Fast is designed to educate about
the benefits of fasting, how to make lifestyle changes and how to prioritize one’s health. We prefer
juice fasting to water fasting to restore nutrients as you detoxify. The reasonable cost includes a 20-
item fasting package, fresh veggie juices and all classes.
One to 3 weeks before the fast, you are provided with a “pre-fast” package which contains your
books, fiber and probiotics as described in the enclosed materials. We must improve the eliminative
systems prior to fasting (to prevent a back up of toxins). Also, making some changes in advance will
lessen the symptoms of fasting.
The mandatory Introductory Class is on Friday night at 6:00 p.m. It begins with a liquid dinner and
includes 2.5 hours of instruction about your Fasting Package and Procedures. At this time, you will
receive the balance of your fasting kit and your manual.
On Saturday and Sunday, we meet from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. to do group sharing and education. 3:15 to
4:00, there is an optional stretch/breathe/meditate class. Monday through Friday, our main class is
from noon to 2:00 (education and sharing). Following the last meeting, we move to 3rd Street Market
from 2:30 to 3:30 for “Transition to Healthy Foods” class.
You will be drinking at least 12 drinks each day (3 powdered green drinks, 1 fresh wheatgrass juice, 2
fresh veggie juices, 2 Perfect 7 fiber, detox tea, veggie broth, magnesium Fizz and Emergen-C
powder). The first three days, in preparation for the liver-gall bladder flush, you will also drink 12 oz.
of organic apple juice (divided amongst several of your powdered drinks).
What to Expect - While this fast is designed to allow people to continue working, it is important to
clear your schedule of EVERY non-critical demand. The more time you can spend resting, responding
to healing crisis symptoms and the more classes you attend, the more productive your fast will be.
It is typical to be nervous about the fast, especially as it approaches. We wonder if we’ve made the
right decision and question our will power, time commitment, etc. By the time you leave the
Introductory Class, you will be so much more comfortable with your decision.
The first 1 to 2 days are the hardest, with some students experiencing hunger, headaches, stress of
trying something new, etc. By Sunday or Monday, most students are very comfortable with the
program and have very little hunger. Your experience will vary from hour to hour. Expect to feel very
sharp and energetic at times, and lethargic or flu-like at others.
Weight loss is typically between 5 and 20 pounds (including pre-fast and fast). The mathematical loss
over 7 days (with one pound being 3,500 calories) would be around 4 pounds, but the body dumps so
many toxins that the weight loss is usually larger. However, thinner people tend to lose very little,
while the larger lose the most. Your body finds its natural equilibrium and weight loss is gradual with
lifestyle changes after the fast. If weight loss is a long term goal for you, remember that 4 pounds a
month is 48 pounds in a year!
