Juicing with Joe!

Juicing with Joe!

I’m sure I’ve posted this before … but this is a really good site … explains juicing / rebooting / etc. really well. And yeah … if you’re considering a reboot, make sure to watch the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead video too 🙂


Day 30 … Here Early :-)

22 Jul

Even though my official 30th day isn’t until Tuesday … I decided to break my fast with this evening’s supper. Four weeks … 28 days … and plus … the bananas and peaches were calling my name today at Harris Teeter.

I carefully cleaned and sliced a peach and pealed a perfectly-ripened banana … and dove in. And … oh my God … they tasted amazing. You know … like fruit used to taste when you were a kid on a Summer day … when your mom would call you away from the sprinklers and hand you a slice of watermelon … THAT good!


What an amazing month it has been. I thought it was going to be a struggle … but wow … it has been a pleasure!

Here is a summary of my weight-loss stats:

  • Weight one week before the fast when I changed diet: 215 lb
  • Weight on first day of juice fast: 210 lb
  • Today’s weight (after 28 day juice fast): 186 lb
  • Total weight loss: 29 lb


Tomorrow begins a new lifelong journey of eating well. I still want to lose about ten pounds … which I’m giving myself another month to accomplish (by my birthday) … wish me luck!

My new nutritional goals:

  • Still juice a few times a week … will likely have a juice every morning for breakfast for a while
  • Eat a whole foods, low fat, plant-based diet
  • No dairy
  • no added oils
  • no animal protein

Thanks y’all for joining me on my journey … and please keep in touch!

Hey there everyone.

Another green day in paradise … hee hee.

A quick check-in to let you know that I’m still doing great on my juice-fast. For the last few days though I have been feeling the symptoms of a head cold. I’m not sure if it’s a cold … or just my internal healing machine doing a number on my respiratory system. I don’t “feel” sick per se. You know, no fever, no chills, no body aches. I had some back pain yesterday, but that was likely due to me teaching all day.

Today … my back feels fine, but my runny nose is still hanging around.

I went to bed earlier than normal the last two night just in case I am dealing with a cold.

So … anyway … juice on!

The strawberries I bought have been a wonderful addition to my meals … I need to get some more if they’re still on sale! Today’s lunch will be a big ol’ pile of collards, cucumber, carrots, and some apple, lemon, orange, and mango, too.

And … I almost forgot … I weighed myself today. I’m at 189 pounds. Woo Hoo!

And … I’m running out of wearable pants … I wish I had a buddy who worked at Macy’s or Belk!

OK … one more goodie from Dr. Fuhrman … his food pyramid.

Planning ahead for my life post-fast.

Hey Y’all!

In the home stretch now … and looking forward to the last several days of my little juicing adventure. Looking forward to another great week and who knows — a few more pounds off my belly too(?!).

This morning, I weighed 190.5 pounds … I’m 1/2 pound from 20 pounds!

Tonight’s dinner was mango, carrots, kale, cucumber, celery, and ginger root.
