In September 2011 I stopped chewing food for 30 days. I lost 17 pounds and by day 15 I felt more amazing than I had in a decade. Friends were curious so I wrote a FAQ I forwarded to all those who asked.
Here it is.
I will create more in-depth posts on this subject, but if you want to drink in the Juice Fast overview like a blast from a fire-hose, read on. :)
Even now, after a year of eating Paleo, I can't think about "eating healthy".
That sounds so boring. And forced. Like my mom making me clean my room.
I remember when I first went gluten-free. It was February 2011 and in less than 24 hours I felt like a new person. No more brain fog or grouchiness. No more fatigue or food cravings. I lost 20 lbs eating gluten-free junk. That's because I did it to feel less crappy, not to eat healthy.
Here is what a friend texted me yesterday: "I turn 30 in a month and I was wondering if I'm strict Paleo what I can expect to lose of I'd notice a difference in 30 days?"
It reminded me of me last year. "I'm turning 40 in November and I don't to be fat on my birthday, ahhhhhHHhhHH!" I had all year to get ready. It wasn't like turning 40 was a surprise or I had forgotten when my birthday was. But like I usually do, I waited until the last minute. (Oh, the brilliant ideas I had for college term papers at 2:00am the day they were due but I digress. LOL!) That's why, in mid-September 2011...
I like the easy Paleo stuff.
