Have Juicer Will Travel



So my 32-year-old son turned me on to this movie called "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.," a documentary by Australian filmmaker Joe Cross. It's about his journey from being overweight, junk food-obsessed and sick to healthy, happy and free of all medications that treated his high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and auto-immune deficiency.

The film shows how he did it by increasing his consumption of macro-nutrients through fresh fruits and vegetables in a juicer. He traveled across America from New York City to San Diego with his juicer, talking to people about his 60 day juice fast.

I'm not going to this extreme, but I like the idea of adding a healthy dose of natural fruit and veggies to my diet by juicing. Hubby and I are gonna get a juicer and detox ourselves. I'll keep you posted.

Here's the link if you want to see the movie.

I'm hitting the fruits and vegetables pretty hard but I prefer them in chewable form. I'll be interested in hearing how you and your husband like the juicer though. Mixing up a good juice cocktail once in a while might be a refreshing change from my iced tea.

Lynn: Me, too. I'm not going hard core like this guy, but I'd love to try it.

Patricia: I agree. I can't imagine going 30 days or 60 days without chewing. My teeth would fall out.

Yes, do let us know how this goes - you might end up with some converts of your own!
