Okay, so for the last couple years, all I’ve been drinking was water. That’s it. Whenever I would try orange juice or pop, I would feel very sick and want to throw up. Well, since January, I’ve been having a very time going to the bathroom. Not number one, but number two. Like, it’s a struggle for me to go once every other two days! My mom kept pressuring me to try laxatives, but I didn’t want them. We decided to get some Juicy Juice 100% apple juice just last Friday, though. Oh my gosh. It’s been a life savor for me. I mean, after I drink it, my stomach will hurt a little, BUT my mom and I think that it means that it’s working. For the past couple days, I’ve been able to go to the bathroom perfectly. Even today, I went THREE times. This is probably because I had so much waste build up, right? I seriously feel like I’ve lost five pounds of waste… My clothes are even starting to fit better. So, my question is, is it okay to make apple juice a normal part of my diet? Like, is it okay to have one ten ounce bottle a day? I’m a vegetarian as it is, and there’s absolutely no sugar in the juice. Isn’t it basically like eating an apple a day, but in juice form? I tried eating an apple a day, but even though that helps a little, the juice is helping me a lot more.
What do you think?
Trust me, I eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
This is my usual day:
For breakfast= Hard boiled egg with a banana
For lunch= cucumber and cheese sandwich and a side of either grapes or an orange
For a mid afternoon snack= A bowl of mix fruit, which usually includes melon
For dinner= mashed potatoes, broccoli, and noodles or rice. Or, I have some homemade veggie pizza with a banana on the side.
I think maybe part of the problem is that I don’t get enough food groups. It’s hard being a vegetarian at a house of meat eaters, so I probably don’t get enough calories. :\ Suggestions? I used to include some mixed nuts in my diet, but I recently found out that I’m allergic.
