So... last night husband and I watched "fat, lazy, and nearly dead" I think was the name of it. A documentary that follows this guy around on a 60 day tour of the US while he's on a veggie juice only diet. He encountered a couple of people along the way, one a trucker. After his trip when he gets home, he gets a call from the trucker saying he's ready for a change. The trucker ends up losing 202 pounds! Basically it rekindled what I've known all along, I grew up with health nut parents complete with fresh made carrot juice and all. I miss having that energy and over all feeling of.... "glow"... I guess you could call it. What sealed the deal for me was when a woman who tried it, said she felt 21 again. I'm only 29... way too young to feel this old! My energy is just gone, I've gotten lazy... I haven't been on a 3 hour dog walk through the woods in YEARS. Totally my fault that I fell in with the normality of fast food and eating too much in general. We're not obese or anything, but each of us could stand to lose 30 pounds. Luckily I'm tall but recently I've noticed my height advantage with hiding excess weight is about to run out. So. Dramatic change to kick start the process. Today we're going to buy a juicer, a scale and tape measure, and a giant pile of veggies after I dig up some recipes. Our taste buds are in for a kick in the pants! We don't even eat that terrible... but it's bad enough. By no means are we on the raw diet, and we don't eat enough fruits for sure. Any of you do this? Have any good juice recipes? I know beat will sweeten carrot, but that's all I remember. Now... they're talking about kale and ginger and stuff I'm not familiar with.
