First stage is over. Great....Actually AWESOME!

That's right, the first stage!  I have completed my 60 day juice fast.  What an epic journey it was.  I lost a total of 57 pounds in the 60 days of fasting.  I honestly feel young again!  Now, it is day 4 post fast.  This weekend I played around with a little solid food and can honestly say that I already miss the juicing!  Not necessarily the actual juicing or even the taste, but the consistency that is juicing!  I miss how easy it was to eat healthy while juicing.  Basically, I woke up and made juices and drank them.  Now that I can eat solid foods, I have to actually make informed decisions about each thing I am putting into my mouth.  I miss the empty, light feeling in my gut, that juicing brought with it!  With all that being said, I know that I cannot go on a lifelong juicing fast.  I have to learn what and how to eat, all over again.  That means that we are on the next step of this total journey.  EATING healthy.

Yesterday was Easter, which of course means Easter dinner.  I had a small piece of Turkey.  It was my first piece of meat in three months.    It was delicious but not well received by my body.   I also had a small salad and fresh pasta tossed with garlic, tomatoes and spinach.  Overall, it went well.  Today, I have decided to spend the day RAW.  Smoothies and juice only.  Until I fully learn what exactly I need to eat, I will try small portions of food, mostly vegetarian, partially raw, with the occasional piece of meat (chicken or fish).  Beef will be limited to once per month.  I love a good steak.  However, I see even the once a month beef shrinking to once every couple of months.  So, the next week will be mostly smoothies and juices with light balanced meals.  Of course I am already looking forward to my next juice reboot (which is planned for May 15).  This one will be much shorter, probably around 15 days.  

The results from my first reboot were unbelievable!  I feel great, actually awesome!  The numbers are there to back it up, too!  Take a few minuted to watch the video review of the fast, including the blood work results!

I welcome all advice and ideas on how to move into healthier veg and raw eating.



  1. You need to update your progress picture!!! ;-)

  2. Come to think of it, you need to add a lot of "used to be"s to your "about me" section too! Great job!

  3. I wanted to check in a year out and see how you're doing? Any advice for folks wanting to get started.
