Fat, sick and nearly dead

Jan 09, 2015 12:41 PM

Has anyone done this juice reboot? The documentaries are awesome. I eat healthy and for the greater part of my life I always have. I am a very picky eater, but healthy picky. Fruits, veggies lean meat. Curious please share.

I know I am posting on my own thread. I am not fat. I am 5'9 and 130 pounds. I am juicing and eating very clean. I am trying to get the inflammation under control so maybe my body will stop attacking itself. My joints feel like I am 90 and 500 pounds. I have had to stop working and do not participate with life. Sick of being sick and tired.

LMB, What does juicing really do? I thought it was more of a crash diet, lose weight fast type of thing.

Honestly, I haven't heard anything good about juicing. If you're juicing a little in addition to eating healthy it seems like it might be good thing, but, I wouldn't try one without talking to your doctor, as it can interact with medications and certain medical conditions. But here are a couple articles I found, the first from the Mayo Clinic:

As far as I know juicing and Smoothie making combined with a good diet can help to reduce inflammation and enable the intake of more vital nutrients. Spices like tumeric or certain chillies and other foods have anti - inflammatory effects and juicing enables you to intake them daily when you may not in your diet

Juicing adds micronutrients that you can't possibly get enough by eating alone. Basically because of the volume you would have to eat. This has nothing to do with dieting for me. For the most part I eat this way and this is just adding more nutrients instead of just drinking water alone. I already have cut out processed foods and dairy. Just trying to stay strong and maybe cut off some inflammation triggers. The movie that I mentioned is on Netflix and they have a huge Facebook following. If it helps anyone's pain level it is worth trying. I don't see any negative side to improving the crappy American diet.

I did the juice reboot for a few weeks in 2012 or 2013 (can't remember). Some of the recipes are quite tasty and I definitely felt better. It's expensive though, because you're burning through a lot of produce!
