RE: Juice fasting fail :(

I'm sure Susan will weigh in on this, but I feel that fasting is not healthy. Our bodies were created to function with real food, not just with liquid. Juice, though it has nutrients, has no fiber, and therefore is basically just pure sugar shot straight into the bloodstream... it's hard on the pancreas and can result in a blood sugar spike and then crash.
It appears, to uneducated-but-well-meaning-me that you had an extremely healthy dinner. So I wouldn't call that a failure. I'd call that a success at eating a well-rounded, healthy meal! May all of our meals be so healthy!
