Juicing for 21 Days (Update)


ImageI began my dietary change to whole foods, which includes daily juicing, 21 days ago. I’d say I’ve adhered to “whole foods” approximately 80% of the time and juiced at least once a day, most days 2-3 juices. This week I reintroduced my 4x weekly 4.5 mile run/walk back into the regimen after the initial detoxification period. 

Despite a nasty bug making its way through the ranks here at the Posse Palace I feel great! My resistance seems to be much higher than my housemates and to date I’ve lost 9 pounds! That is my “scale success”. Some of my other successes include: more energy and deep, satisfying sleep. We’ll see how regular exercise affects my fitness level when I check in next month.

The rest of the family hasn’t adopted my lifestyle as of yet, but we are moving in the right direction! Sean will make juice with me (as seen in the photo above) and he will drink most juices with a fruit base. Soda has been restricted significantly, store bought juices have been banned and water intake increased. Over processed snack foods and convenience foods have been replaced with healthy, home cooked options. Fresh fruits, vegetables and fresh juice is available 100% of the time. 

Refined “white” foods have been eliminated. Dyes, corn syrup and bleach….GONE. 

The rewards are great and I’ve found this lifestyle quite easy to maintain. I don’t feel hungry or deprived because I eat anything I want when I want it. My mindset has changed and I recognize the modern western diet for what it is: pure poison. Therefore I no longer desire it. 

When I pass a chocolate cake it may as well be a box of cyanide, for that is how my minds eye sees it. I knew it would take a major mental shift for me to find success, and apparently God, in His goodness, has granted me the strength and determination to adjust the way I see food. Food is only fuel, a means to power this wonderful machine God has given me I call a “body”. It is up to me to ensure I fuel it properly.

  1. Wow! I love that you have embrace juicing and eliminating “white” foods. It is all about balance and in our world today it is more about convenience. Food is fuel and what you do put into your body, does have a lasting impact on your life. Awesome post!
