Juice fasting

It is now over a month since the end of my 30 day juice fast, and I am delighted with the results. I’ve lost a further 2.6 kg (5.7 pounds), and according the BMI, my weight is now in the normal range at 24.9. Best of all, I’m continuing to enjoy high energy levels, and it has made it possible for me to take on a new commitments such as my challenge to speak fluent Thai within six months.

I don’t have any problem losing the weight (I’m up and down between 86kg / 190 pounds and 75kg/165 pounds like a yo-yo) but it is keeping it off that is the problem.
