Global Juice Feast

Does juicing greens shrink the stomach?

I am wondering, since I am on a modified juice feast, when I do choose to eat, how much food do I really need?
I have heard that our stomach is as big as our hand in a slightly clenched fist. If this is true, I just stretched mine to the max. As a fresh food vegan, and 3/4 raw food eater, I would usually eat quite a mountain of food. I regularly ate many times a day, whenever I wanted, as much, or as little as I wanted.
Today starts week two of my feast, and I ate a pile of food for Sunday dinner, and now I am feeling it. Although, I stick to rule one, “eat the plants”, I still ate way more than the average guy.
I am making amendments to my actions, and tomorrow things will not be the same, and I will do better.
I digress.
How much food should I eat? If it’s true that I am to eat as much food as the size of my hand at one time?
The reason I inquire is, I have been adding a juice a day for a week, and since this is the beginning of week two, I added a juice, to my daily intake. When I ate Sunday dinner today, I was so full I passed out on the couch, like after a big holiday meal, and now I got a “food hangover”.
Drinking juice has shrunk my stomach capacity.
Is there anyone else on this page? Does anyone have anything to share on this?
Preesh.

Day 52

Yep its true I've enjoyed another fast. I decided after my initial 92+ days to make this a yearly mind, body spirit resting ritual.Don't know if I will ever go as long or longer but short - mid fasts are definitely now apart of my lifestyle.  The benefits are endless and my intentions in the near future is to completely rest and relax during my fast (no phone, work, completely surrounded only by other fasters in nature etc.)  It's a great time of healing and a lot of emotions, ideas etc arise…See More

"Hello! Substitutions are great try celery hearts, cucumber and any greens a variety is best. Tomatoes, bell pepper are a nice addition. Coconut water is tasty as a treat minus the meat. Hope this helps"
