On Saturday, I wasn't able to fall asleep so I spent more time that I care to admit browsing the interwebs. I landed on Pinterest which is something I rarely check out but there are always time-consuming 'pins' there. I ended up on a couple different blogs that talked about juicing which lead me to the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary. At 1:30am I decided to watch it.
While the documentary itself wasn't that great, the message was clear. Liquified fruits and veggies = weight loss, increase in heath and energy and a great detox of your system.
As many of my friends can attest to, I am a pretty healthy eater. I primarily eat pescatarian and have very limited amount of carbs, and I don't drink soda or fast food. I have been an athlete through college and still work out regularly, do endurance events and have a personal trainer. However, ever since high school I have struggled with my weight. I have gone to multiple doctors, have had everything tested and tried every diet. I even tried hypnosis.
Everytime, the doctors tell me I am perfectly healthy and my heart breaks a little.
So, to continue my trend of trying everything in hopes that one day something will work, I am going to go on a "juice fast" for the next two weeks at least.
I gathered info from a bunch of places and am going to do what works best for me and my lifestyle. I purchased a juicer, found a bunch of recipes and am excited to start. I know it will be hard but it won't be the most difficult thing I have ever done. I plan on documenting this cleanse as much as possible for the next couple of weeks.
The juicer arrives on Wednesday so will kick this off as soon as I figure out how to use it.
