Fat Sick And Nearly Dead
I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" on Netflix last night. The documentary was really good. It inspired me to go on my own juice fast journey.
Why do I want to do this?
I'm tired of getting hives & rashes that no doctor can explain. Everything Joe mentioned in his film, I can relate to. I also need to lose weight and rid myself of these toxins in my body.
How am I going to do this?
Today I went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond to buy a Breville Juice Fountain for around $149+taxes. I also went to Cub Foods and bought about $30.00 worth of fresh fruits and vegetables to get me started.
Okay, so now I have the juicer ... what should I do?
So my first juice concoction was a mixture of fresh snow peas, granny smith apples, carrots, and ginger.
How did it look?
At first glance, once I stirred the juice it came out as a green-orangish color. Sorry, I was too excited, I didn't take a picture. Haha!
How did it taste?
Mmmm, it was actually pretty good. The ginger gave the juice a "kick" and I could really taste the snow peas. It was very light and refreshing.
How do I feel afterwards?
I drank about 16 oz of the juice. I don't feel hungry or anything. Well it's only been a couple of hours now. We'll see how I feel afterwards.
I think my next concoction will include grapes, cucumbers, pears, leafy greens, spinach, watermelon and others!
