The Two Day (Green Tea) Fast

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’d remember that I did a 48hr cleanse last year.

It was a success, I promised myself I’d do it again soon but I never got around to it.

I’d been feeling a bit unhealthy lately; I haven’t been eating well, drinking enough water and getting adequate sleep.

Watching Glamazini’s videos on MasterCleanse and a recent Nutrition Diva podcast on fasting inspired me to try another fast.

I decided to try a two day green tea fast this weekend.

Green Tea

Here’s what I did – on Saturday and Sunday I drank only green tea with lemon, lightly sweetened with maple syrup.

I didn’t eat anything else.

I went to the States on Saturday for a few hours to pick up a vintage Cacharel dress (more on that some day), I took two thermal bottles filled with tea and sipped on it the whole day.

I ended up walking quite a bit around the city when I got back later on in the day – I felt fine

At night we went down to English Bay to watch the Vectorial Elevation lightshow and take pictures.

I went to bed early – I guess my energy level was low.

I woke up Sunday well rested but hungry and a little woozy; I didn’t think I could make it through another day.


I had some tea, relaxed for a while and just as I was contemplating breaking the fast, I got a refreshing burst of energy.

I ran some errands, went for a little walk and danced.

I woke up early this morning and had oatmeal with generous servings of nuts and raisins.

It felt so glorious! I took my time, took long breaths and savoured every bite.

The appreciation you get for food after not eating for a while is well worth it.

And, everything tastes so much better now.

I feel a little different, things seems clearer.
