I recently watched the documentary, “Fat Sick & Nearly Dead.” I thought it was inspiring and amazing how this man took charge of his health the way he did (under medical supervision.) For those who have not seen it (or heard about it), this man drank only fresh juice (he made from fresh produce) for 60 days.
So I thought, “Hmmm…I’ve got local markets near me with fresh(ish) produce, why don’t I try it for a few days?” I dash off to the market happily anticipating this new adventure. I buy the ingredients needed (the guy from the documentary has a website where you can do 3, 5 etc days of juicing and he gives you a list of stuff to buy.)
I get home, and make my first juice. *drum roll* Gag!!! I choked it down. I tried another juice later on….omg kill me. I missed eating real food. All this did was make me miserable.
Now, maybe juicing isn’t for me. I don’t eat fast-food (yuck) and I rarely eat at restaurants. I make 90% of my meals at home. Maybe this kind of thing is good to get people to start eating better, but I’m already doing that…so no juicing for me!
I’ll stick to chewing my food, thanks. 😉
