How Bad Do You Want It, Success ???

One Week, And Doing Great, small Loss last couple of days.

Today marks one week on the juice feast. I have lost a few Lbs over the last couple of days, but still 20 something Lbs lost in a week is nothing to be frustrated at. The side effects such as mental clarity and increased energy have been phenomenal. So I am going to step up my physical activity, to be honest I haven't exercised in the last week. Tomorrow I will be going to purchase a new pair of cross-trainer shoes. Most likely New Balance brand. Time to make a batch of juice for tonight, then I am going to spend some time with the Mrs. and turn in early.

Almost a week and so much better...

It is day 6 for my juice feast. Though when I weighed myself I am still at about 20 Lbs of weight loss, so no weight lost from yesterday to today but I feel so much better physically, mentally and psychologically! 20  Lbs weight loss in 6 days is nothing to complain about at all. Plus I have to admit, I haven't been exercising. This is something I need to commit to and add to my health regiment. It is time to go make some more juice for today and this evening at work.

Fat Sick And Nearly Dead

For anyone who may not have known, I got my inspiration to start my juice fast, or feast as I prefer to call it from the movie/documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead".  If you haven't seen it or read the companion book yet, I highly recommend them both. You can also find out more at:

As day 6 begins for me, I can finally say I feel great! And to top it off as of this morning I have lost 20 Lbs !!! I have a lot more to lose, but I am feeling better, more energetic, more centered and mentally clearer. I was able to wake up and get out of bed this morning with no trouble and feel good about it, I can't remember the last time I could do that it has been so long. I am very encouraged and happy today.

It's The Hump Day For This Juicer

It is my "Wednesday" at work and day 5 on my juice feast. I feel quite a bit better today. Still a little "spacey", with a bit of stomach intestinal irritation and headache.
I am going to make a couple batches of juice to take to work. I am going to make a batch of "Mean Green" and a batch of the carrot apple and ginger juice.

Carrot Apple Lemon and Ginger Juice

Decided to try something a little different. I made a really tasty juice and it was made of the following ingredients:

1 Large Red Apple.
4 Carrots
1/2 Lemon
1 Piece of Ginger about 1/2" long.

It is a very light, tasty and refreshing juice. Trying the different combinations is fun and has endless possibilities.

Much, Much Better !

Today was much better! I still did some unpleasant "detoxing" this morning and throughout the day. Now that has passed and I am feeling much better.

The headache, body aches and other unpleasant effects have waned, my energy and clarity is beginning to return. This is all good, I don't know how much more I could have taken. I had reached the point I was ready to throw in the towel and call it quits.

I am truly hoping it only gets better from here and that my health begins to improve and that the weight will melt away.

Day Three Was Rough !

I am not going beat around the bush, today was rough! I had to go back to work and I was mas detoxing hard core, Headache, tired, hungry and feeling like garbage in general...

I came home, took a nap and then made some juice later. I will be glad when this period of detoxing is done. I am down over 10 Lbs since I started. I made a 30 Oz. container of vegetable juice for tomorrow and a new recipe, green apple, lemon and ginger.

Day Number Two Has Passed.

Well the end of the second day of my Juice Feast. Today was a bit more challenging. I gave up caffeine, nicotine and solid food all on one day. Today I was tired and did not feel great, I am definitely detoxing.

I did weigh somewhere around 5 Lbs less this morning! Tonight was challenging as the family had pizza for dinner, that was insanely tough! The smell was overpowering.

But, making a 30 oz serving of juice for dinner, that helped allot. I go back to work tomorrow morning, I will make a container tonight to bring to work tomorrow, then when I get home I will make another one for the evening.

So, another day draws to a close, I will be glad when the detoxing and first challenging days are over, I know this journey will not always be easy, but as happened to both Joe and Phil in the documentary and countless other Reebooters, I know it will be well worth it. And I will be here to record and share it.

Started My Reboot Juice Fast today !

Made my first batch of juice and slowly enjoying it now. My batch was as follows:

1 bunch of kale
4 stalks celery
1 zucchini
1 cucumber
... 1 Red Delicious apple
1 Fuji apple
2 carrots
1/2 lemon
1” piece of ginger root.

It is pretty good. I sip it and also have water I drink too. This batch of juice made about 30 oz. I drink about 1 gallon of water a day normally anyway on a daily basis.

My starting weight is 385 lbs. I gain about 10 lbs back last week living it up while waiting for my juicer. I went out with a bang last night. I had McDonald’s for dinner and then a six pack of Full Suspension Ale after work. It was like a going away party, even though I am not really a big McD’s fan. The micro-brew now, that’s a different story!

My goal is a 60 day Reboot, but I am taking it in 10 day segments. I will be here for support and to keep everyone informed. My goal is to get back down to a solid, muscular 200 lbs again. But considering a year ago I was about 398 lbs, I feel very good and optimistic even with the weight I have lost prior to starting this journey, but now I am looking for massive and quick changes that I saw happen to Joe, Phil and others in the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead".
