This smiley guy and his documentary entitled, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is the reason why Big G and I are changing things up a bit in our house. We've been juicing our breakfast and lunches, but eating a normal dinner. Our rationale for not fasting entirely according to the Reboot program stems from the fact that 1) we have 7 kids; 2) they will not tolerate us drinking our suppers together; and 3) juicing two out of three meals a day is manageable and quite realistic for us. Rarely do we hear people characterize us as impulsive, obsessive or looney - an entire fasting system for 30 to 60 days just wasn't even a possibility. It was too extreme for us and screamed total failure....Keeping it reasonable but healthy will work for us, as going to extremes to replicate healthy eating and nutty eating patterns just won't work. We would certainly have gotten off to a great start, but we would have flamed out quickly. So, after carefully watching Joe Cross' documentary,
So far, we have had great success. The juice recipes are excellent and simple. We feel great. As an added bonus, I've dropped five lbs, while G has lost double that, if not more already in the last 9 days.
