I'm sharing this trailer of the "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead," documentary because I was so inspired by it! If you'd like to watch the movie go HERE or you can watch it for free on Netflix and if you have amazon prime, you can also watch it for free there. As for Hulu, I'm not sure, you'll have to check it out and see.
I'm gearing up to start the juice fast and I'm committing to 30 days (insert gasp) OK... you heard it, so now I have to stick to it, right?
Hey....who knows....maybe I'll even do it 60 days like Joe in the movie. Meee not "eat" food....whaaaa? Yep....that's right folks I'm serious about this, so it's juice time! I can do it, I can do it, I can do it... Hmmm, do ya think chanting will help? lol Yeah probably not...I think this calls for some, big time prayin'!!!
What will I be juicing, you might ask? The answer is...lot's of spinach, kale, swiss chard, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, sweet potato, red bell peppers, tomatoes, beets, parsley, cucumber, celery, Fennel, basil, red onion, berries, grapes, apples, oranges, lemons, lime, radishes, ginger root and even a little jalapeno. It will be fun trying juice recipes!
I know it may not be easy, but I'm sooo ready! Ready to get my blood pressure down to normal! Ready to get my colon working normally! Ready to get rid of the severe bloating in my abdomen! Ready to not have to take meds for allergies! Ready to shed 30 pounds! And finally......READY TO FEEL GREAT! I'm sooo ready!!!
If you're interested in learning more about improving your health, and guarding against or even reversing diseases with a plant based diet, check out this trailer of Forks Over Knives.
I watched this documentary several months ago and it literally changed my whole way of thinking about food! It had such an impact on me, that I've already changed my diet drastically and I know I will be eating mostly a vegetarian/vegan diet, when I'm finished with my juicing fast. You can watch Forks Over Knives for free on Netflix!
Also, here is a video by Dr. Fuhrman that is very informative. You may recognize Dr. Fuhrman from the Dr. Oz show, he's on there quite often and he has helped many people lose weight and get healthy, with a plant based diet.
I'm so anxious to begin my Juice fast and even more anxious to feel good! I did a 2 week juice fast several years ago and not only did I lose 15 pounds, but I felt better than I've ever felt before! With that particular fast, I didn't do any fruits, just veggies and I added barley green and several herbs to my juice, which gave me lots of energy. Energy? What's that? lol I'm looking forward to feeling energetic again!
I will try to blog about my progress along the way, probably at the end of each week, but I don't know if I'll be taking pics to share....well....I'll think about it, but can't promise anything.
Hmmm....maybe I'm a little too vain! Ya think? lol Nawww that's not it...I'm just a private person...yeah that's it! Guess I'll have to work on that!
No but seriously, I really am a private person and a little vain too. :)
