Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

Sunday, February 03, 2013

On 1/2/2013 my son saw the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, so he started a fruit juice fast....he lost 30 lbs by 2/3/2013. By supporting him, I lost 12 pounds. Anyhow, because we supported each other, It wasnt as hard as it seemed. He bought a juicer, we set up a kitchen station with a blender, a cutting board and the new juicer. We Juice 4 times a day and can accomplish this because we wash the parts and reset up immediately after we finish juiceing. I can foresee myself going 100% vegan upon completion of our plan because it will be very easy to transition over. Things we have learned to do: Make hummus, make vegan pizzas, make vegan sushi, and make pulp crackers. My resistance to fast food and ordering out for lunch has been stellar, because Im not starving for any nutrients.

    That is awesome! I saw that movie too... with others like it Knives & Forks, Vegucated etc. Those shows will change your life! Congrats on the healthy life style! I started 5 weeks ago following the practices of Dr Joel Furhman ( he is in Fat, Sick and nearly Dead) He has a book Eat to Live, I read it cover to cover and have not had meat since!
I have lost 10lbs in 5 weeks time! Congrats! We are in this together! Keep up the good work!
