Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog, "The Secret Is Out." Have a healthy and successful day!
Thanks for stopping by my page and commenting on my blog. I find the Spark Activity Tracker highly encouraging - even though it never says a word. I treated myself with one for my birthday. I think it is one of the best gifts I've ever gotten. Syncing of the tracker to my computer/phone hasn't been instantaneous for me but I don't check that often. You can always tap it several times and it completely lights up if you have met your goal. I liked the price and it is barely noticeable.
I was looking over your page and wanted to say that there are also articles on the website about adding what you need if you are in training or work out a whole bunch. You get a lot more protein than you might think from the juice but intense physical activity has it's own needs:) Good luck!!
Thanks for the comment on my blog:) The best way to learn what it's all about is to go to Netflix or Youtube and watch the documentaries Fat Sick and Nearly Dead about the juice fasting, and Forks Over Knives about the health side of things. I am doing a 30 day juice fast. We have, on 3 occasions, purposely had a healthy meal as well. I am pretty much just juice but when I eat (and when my juice fast is over and I add meals back in) I'm following Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Some of my juicing buddies go to Paleo for their food though so as long as you go to super healthy meals with PLENTY of fresh whole food, it still works out. People only regain their weight if they juice and then go right back to the same old stuff they were eating before. A lot of people, including my hubby do a "modified juice fast" which just means juice for two meals and then a salad or veggie soup for lunch or dinner or maybe a smoothie for breakfast and juice for lunch and dinner. I don't personally use recipes for the juice but there are plenty of recipes on the rebootwithjoe website plus community boards with tons of people who have kept weight off for a long time to ask for advice. The rule of thumb is to make sure that over the course of the day, your juice is 80% vegetable to 20% fruit juice and drink a lot of water too. My blog from a few days ago does say what I actually juiced that day just to give you an idea.
