I made a decision.
After years of dieting, intermittent exercise and countless amounts of processed, fried and toxic foods crammed down my pie hole, it was time to replenish my body with what I’ve stripped away through hazardous, unhealthy behaviors.
Time to renew my depleted physiological self. Time to start over with a clean, nutrient rich body from the inside out.
Time to REBOOT.
While mentally beating myself into an emotional coma for my dehydration induced swollen ankles several days ago, I came across the documentary “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” and thought hmm. I’m not nearly dead, or even sick. But I am fat and miserable. I’m gonna watch it.
You may have heard of the 2011 film, or maybe not, because I didn’t know it existed until that moment. It chronicles one man’s 60 day journey across the U.S. juicing his way to health. Yes, drinking ONLY juice made from fresh veggies and fruits, filling up with micronutrients to get rid of all the garbage in his body, jump start a plant based lifestyle and most importantly, get off multiple medications.
It was crazy inspiring. Some think it was just plain crazy. But you can’t deny the doctor supervised results.
Clarity. Energy. Vibrancy. WEIGHT LOSS.
I wasn’t looking to do two months of this, the holidays are around the corner for goodness sakes! However for ten days or so, I thought it was doable. Then I can pile the holiday yumminess onto a fresh and clean system! Not really. In actuality, I plan to ease lean animal proteins back into my diet along with eggs and practice moderation. I’ll continue to incorporate raw vegetable juices in my diet daily, as I already feel more alive than I have in a long time!
A few more days to go until my juicy adventure is complete, so till then I’ll have to change my name to Mystery Meatless . . .
