So I just watched this amazing documentary the other day called, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It follows a man that it morbidly obese, suffering from an autoimmune disorder, and basically just wildly unhealthy. He decides to turn it all around and go on a 60 day vegetable/fruit juice fast — that’s right, ONLY JUICE for two months!! Pretty crazy, right?
Anyway, he ends up curing all of his issues, dropping over 65 lbs, and becoming a picture of health. Of course, because he is initially taking tons of medication for his condition, he is monitored by a doctor.
It just goes to show how important it is to eat your veggies, and how little carbohydrates benefit you. I’m doing his challenge starting tomorrow — ten days only drinking freshly made vegetable/fruit juice! I’m excited and nervous. I really don’t want to fail right off the bat and go eat a bag of chocolate or something LOL.
I would encourage everyone to check out the film. It’s really eye-opening. The idea is that the fast is supposed to kick-start your healthy eating habits and retrain your taste buds, so once you finish the fast you don’t want to eat crap and you maintain a healthy diet with lots of vegetables and fruits!
Peace + Love
