Fat Sick and Nearly Dead Giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in daily juice,product review

 

This morning’s juice:

berry beet breakfast

serves one

1 beet
3 handfuls blackberries
1 apple
3 carrots
1 inch piece ginger

This was a zinger! Sweet and spicy, it woke me up.

 

The juice fast that Jason and I recently completed? About a week in, we saw the documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Incredibly inspiring and fun to watch, it was reinforcement that what we were doing was a great thing, and motivated us to continue.

I receive daily mail from readers motivated by my juice posts. Motivated to do a fast, to dust off their juicer for some daily juicing, or to buy a juicer to start juicing! I can’t tell you how awesome it is to hear that, and to be able to answer questions people have and share my experiences.

I am so very excited to be partnering with Reboot Your Life to offer one of my readers the “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” Bundle. The bundle includes the documentary on DVD, the book and the Reboot Nutrition Guide.

Some awesome resources for juicing.

1) what vegetables are included in your favorite juice?

2) have you ever fasted? what kind was it?

6) tweet this –>

My favorite vegetable juice is made of tomatoes

The longest I’ve fasted was 1 day, when I would just drink water. I had long stretches of eating 600 calories, though, does that count as fasting ? ;-)

Celery and cucumber with blueberries and banana. :)

My favorite contains just 2 ingredients…
-carrots
-baby spinach

It tastes just like chocolate milk :) :)

I LOVE that you say this – there are times that certain combinations in juicing will taste like something to me – broccoli tasted like doughnuts once – and people always look at me funny. I am going to try your “chocolate milk” ! :D

My favorite juice is a simple carrot/orange blend. Sometimes I overdo it with ginger, celery, lemon, garlic, etc. which are all very nutritious but I think the simple tastes are the ones I enjoy most.

I really don’t think I can ever say I’ve fasted, though I am intrigued by all of this, especially in light of reading up on Ayurvedic medicine and how my kapha body type can benefit from a juice fast at least once a week.

Christin, you should try a one day – especially if you’re Ayurvedic type says so – years ago I followed Ayurveda, very interesting stuff.

Reply

43 Ashley September 21, 2011 at 9:57 am

I did the lemon aid fast once (lemon, maple & cayenne) and I also tried last fall a raw apple cider fast. I really liked the second one, mostly because cider is amazing. I cut the cider with half water to stay really hydrated and avoid seriously spiking my blood sugar. It worked out really well and I felt great.

44 Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} September 21, 2011 at 10:07 am

I haven’t branched out in my juicing enough. So my favorite veggie to include in juice is carrots.

I have never done a juice fast. I tried a different kind of fast once, but it only lasted for…um….1/4 day? Clearly I have no discipline. :-)

aren’t they fun? they’re round on the bottom like a weeble wobble, too. you know during the holidays, liquor stores have box sets of things, including glasses or some other fun gift with a bottle of whatever? these were in one of those one year – I can’t even recall the liquor – probably one of Jason’s single malts. ;)

I have done a juice fast several times, usually 3 days. Last time, I did 6 days…and also watch this movie while I was doing it. I love it—and also think Joe and Phil are so likeable, that I have shown it in a nutrition class and as a lunch session (movie and discussion) at a corporate wellness client.
I love spreading the idea :)

Hi, I read your post today on MizFitonline and totally enjoyed it.
I haven’t ever fasted before. I see there are a lot of goodveggie/fruit juice recipes out there! I’d love to try them!
Juicing has come up at work. I’m interested in trying it and it’s good to know that you can still run and lift weights while you are fasting/feasting.

I follow FSND on facebook, too.

I just signed up for your newsletter.

I already follow Joe on twitter, I tweeted about your giveaway(which is great by the way!)
I love the apple cobbler receipe, too. I’ll be trying that this weekend. It’s perfect for fall!!!

hi Laura! so happy you enjoyed my post at Carla’s – and whether you want to fast or just juice fairly regularly, it is so good for you and the recipe possibilities are endless!

I hope you do make the apple cobbler – it is so good, we have it a lot around here!

I sort of fasted… did an all day but dinner fast for about 3 days and then continued to juice regularly but included meals. I liked the all day but dinner fast! Or just all juice + 1 small meal… by the time it’s dinnertime I feel like I’m punishing myself and can’t maintain motivation :/ Maybe the next time I try!

105 Mari September 26, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Signed up for the newsletter! And I’m going to watch the documentary tonight.

The only fast I’ve done is the master cleanse, twice this year. The first time was the most challenging, both mentally and physically, but the second one was a bit easier and I stayed on it for 2 weeks. It’s an amazing feeling, but nothing that I’m going to do again for a long time.
I’m planning on doing my first juice fast very soon, it will definitely be easier to live on juice!

I only recently found your blog and really enjoy it. It will be a great resource during the fast!

I’ve done two fasts. I did the master cleanse for 23 days once-then it started getting weird so I stopped. And while I guess it’s not fasting, I have gone through a raw whole foods phase for more than six months at a time. When I say raw, I don’t mean I included fancy dehydrator recipes or store bought things, I juiced, made smoothies from fruits and veggies, ate salads…

Reply

113 spabettie September 28, 2011 at 2:07 pm

started getting weird” – I bet! ;) I don’t think I could do that one – more power to ya! I think the only reason I was able to do a juice fast is because I was FULL and satisfied. I definitely think eating raw is a “fast” or a cleanse – eliminating anything processed and eating food in its most beneficial state, nutrient wise. :)

Reply

114 Lacey September 28, 2011 at 2:10 pm

By started getting weird, I mean that I rarely slept, I felt delirious but really energetic, almost light headed. The white tongue was starting to freak me out and I felt like I smelled strange…perhaps it was hunger talking!!

Hi I’m Josh and my answer is for Question #2: I have never fasted BEFORE. However, my brother and I are currently on our 2nd day of our first juice fast. It’s going well. A lot of preparation and clean-up I didn’t “prep” for lol. I feel a burning in my chest and stomach today which I attribute to heartburn so I’ve eaten a couple tums. I generally feel peaceful overall but tired. I was scouring the web and found your site and I love it. As for what “kind” of fast my bro and I are attempting. It’s about a 50% mix of fruits and vegetables. The vegetable juices are just much harder for us to drink and we learned on day 1 that an all-veggie juice just isn’t for us. But I’m trying to mix it up with spinach, kale, beets, cabbage, mango, limes, lemons and the other standards like apples and celery. I’ll be trying your Berry Beet Breakfast and I hope you don’t mind me substituting strawberries for the blackberries seeing as I MUST use them tomorrow or they’ll go back. Cheers!

cheers to you, Joshua! how is it going, or how did it go, if you are completed? I hope you enjoyed it! all veggie juice is more difficult to enjoy, we do mostly veggie with some strong fruit (berries, pineapple, BIG flavor fruits!). We have kind of settled into a “general” juice we enjoy – carrots, apple, ginger, kale, sometimes beet or celery. I used to mix it up all the time, trying to get creative – I even made a Pizza Juice once – complete with cashews for a “crust” flavor! :)

Cheers!
