It’s the End of the World As We Know It….And I Feel Fine

Many are saying the Mayans were wrong because the earth did not come to a screeching halt.  I say the earth, as we knew it yesterday, has come to an end.  Semantics?  Perhaps.  What I mean is, once the past is behind us, we should forget about it, live in the moment and think about what contributions we can make in shaping the future.  So many folks are...

Lance Armstrong in the News Again

Yesterday, USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) formerly charged Lance Armstrong with doping.  My personal feelings aside (I don’t care for Lance that much), this news is very bad for the sport of cycling, the Tour de France, Ironman triathlons, the battle against cancer and everything else that Lance has stamped his name into over the past 15 years.  Whether...

Off the Wagon

If juicing was easy, everyone would be doing it and everyone would be at their ideal weight. Frankly, it is one of the hardest things I have ever done and last night, I gave into temptation and went out for dinner. Unfortunately, it was a seafood buffet and although I tried to be good, I ate a few things I shouldn’t have, like the entire meal. I did manage to stay...

A Tough Day Indeed

It is the eve of Day 5 and this has been the hardest day as far as craving real food is concerned. It is 9:45 and I am about to call it a night. All I have been thinking about since about 6:00 p.m. is food…any food. The thought of my dinner juice was making me a bit nauseas. I choked it down anyhow and still felt hungry. I missed my mid-afternoon snack juice...

10 Pounds in 3 Days

I am nothing short of amazed at how well juicing is working for Sherry and I.  Perhaps the best part is, I don’t have to tell people I am on a diet…I have really grown to hate that word over the years.  The problem with diets is very few of them address the nutritional and health issues related to being overweight.  For example, on the Atkins diet you...

The Fog Has Lifted

Even though I didn’t sleep well, I woke up feeling refreshed and well rested which is something I have not experienced in a very long time. I felt so good, I felt like I could do just about anything. My immediate thought was to jump on my bike and go for a ride. However, I decided when I started this that I was going to take a week off the bike as not to shock my...

Juice Fast-Day 1

In the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, the narrator says the first three days of a juice fast are the worst.  I guess I was already feeling pretty bad because it seems as though their bad is my good.  I felt outstanding today, better than I have felt in a very long time.  Most of all, there were no hunger pangs or anything else that would suggest I am doing a...
