it took one week after breaking the fast for me to have a bm (just had it yesterday). the first morning i had OJ/grapefruit juice, and more OJ 2x during the day from this great little juice shop in the office concourse. that kept me filled. the second day, Saturday, i juiced some carrots and broccoli stems, and had a fruit smoothie for breakfast and dinner.
Sunday was another breakfast smoothie (all made with only fruits), and lunch was a salad of herb greens (organic, bought pre-packaged), kalamata olives, avocado and tomato, with an olive oil/lemon juice dressing, salt and pepper. it was sooooo good!
was filled from that and didn't have any dinner, but i did have a beer.
Monday, and throughout the week: fruit smoothies for breakfast, soaked almonds, raisins and walnuts or an apple for a snack, and a vita mix veg soup for dinner. i love my vita mixer!
did have wine on occasion, but i can't drink like i used to. i just don't want it, and it takes forever to finish a glass, unheard of for me
i didn't like the "consistency" of my first bm, too solid, and actually it was nice for that first week not to have any, funny as that sounds. i had to go 3x yesterday.
i'm expecting, via UPS today, a new juicer and dehydrator. will be fun using those items for the first time! i have a centrifugal juicer, but this new one is the Green Star, and the dehydrator is Excalibur, both suggested to me by raw friends and internet research.
we'll see how well i can do on our trip to London, just one week away now!
anyway, hope this helps those coming off the fast, and wondering if what they're experiencing is "normal"
