I’m on day three now and feeling great! I’m sleeping better and physically I feel very light and healthy. I’ve not had a lot of the cravings that other people on the cleanse are having. I think it is because I have done a real good job of keeping lots of fruit within reach so I never get to the point that I’m dying to eat something. I am considering staying on the fast for another one or two days after today. I don’t find giving up certain foods for 3-5 days out of my entire life that big of a deal. It has made me realize how spoiled we are. There are millions and millions of people all over the world with very little food to eat or very few options. Many of those people would jump at the chance to eat fruit all day long. We get upset and stressed out when we can’t have a cheeseburger, or chips, or pizza, or soda or have to step out of our daily patterns, our comfort zones, for just three days. It is no wonder we are an obese nation and it is no wonder that I myself gained way too much weight.
Today I am grateful for living in a grossly abundant society and I will do my best to stay humble and think of the less fortunate people around the world while I eat the fruits of our society.
