At least these are my acceptable alterations. Alan would disagree with me;-)
1. Chocolate covered raisins continue to be a healthy snack and you may eat a few if you just "need a little something sweet", especially if you have just had some juice heavy on the broccoli and wanted to vomit.
2. If your body is needing a piece of chicken, EAT THE PIECE OF CHICKEN....and I did:-)
3. Since you make up the amount of days you want to do the juice fast, you may change the number of days without guilt.
On a serious note (well, the above is pretty serious, too), we did get a lot out of the juice fast. Alan totally did the juice fast for three days, not the original five, but he felt like he had no energy. I decided to eat one meal a day and for my body that worked great. I think we will keep juicing in our eating plan at least for one meal a day. Currently, we are still juicing at breakfast and feel great getting such a good blend of nutrition right after working out.
Probably the biggest problem for me is me:-) As much of a rule follower as I am, there are just some things that I hate to be boxed in about. I think my eating is one of them. By giving myself some grace, I do much better about it.
