Down 85 Pounds, Martin Now Inspires 7 People a Week to Start A Reboot

“I was laying in bed late one night, my breathing was laboured, I was on statins, blood pressure tablets gout tablets, taking kelp for an underactive thyroid and anti depressants. I was now desperate to change, but couldn’t find the strength to do so. Then on Netflix I stumbled across Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. I was hooked. Seeing how Joe and Phil lost so much weight, I was desperate to try it. There was one issue though. I hated vegetables, and wasn’t keen on fruit either. Still I had to try it.” Read Martin’s amazing story.

How I Regained My Inner Superman After A Sedentary Desk Job Destroyed It

I tried a couple of things with limited results…I kept slipping right back into my old comfort zone after losing a few kilos. One June evening a friend said he had a documentary that I absolutely must watch, he said the moment he saw it he just thought of me (the similarities were that I was once an avid sportsman and I also used to often go through 2 pizzas. …not slices whole pizzas just as Joe mentioned). I watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and immediately I knew what I had to do.

Four Belts in One Year, From XXL to Medium

“After a month of my juice fast I started running. For my first run I went as far as I possibly could, and then I ran back. I went 6 miles and laid on the floor for an hour afterwards! Not even 6 months after starting my fast on April 31st I started thinking about ways I could mark my 1 year anniversary of being healthy. On April 13th I will be running the London Marathon.” Read Christopher’s full story.

I Learned I Had the Will Power to Lose 182 Pounds

On July 5, 2013 I started my Reboot weighing in at 402 lbs/1852 kg! I combined what Joe did along with my workout regimen and in 60 days I lost 80 lbs/36 kg. I stopped lifting weights and went to all cardio. I would do at least 60 mins of cardio. I started doing 30 mins on the elliptical machine until I worked myself up to an hour. I then moved from elliptical to jogging, to jump-roping, to seated row, to stair stepper to a combo of all of them. I kept going from that point on. I would eat, then juice until I reached whatever goal I had at the moment. On March 10, 2014 my official weigh in was 220 lbs/100 kg for a total of 182 lbs/83 kg lost.

“I was poisoned with medication!”

“I was depressed and the medication I was taking made me gain so much weight. I was poisoned with medication! I was crazy looking for the solution. I went through several diets to lose weight without results. I did not understand what was happening, then my endocrine told me that I was intoxicated by drugs for depression and that it was a matter of time, she told me not to do diets, so I must wait. I commented to a friend and he told me about FSND.” Read Jeannette’s full story of transformation.

Finding the ‘Fabulous Fatties’ Saved My Life

“The most exciting change in my health – besides losing so much weight – is that the night before I began juicing, I injected 105 units of insulin before bed. Three months later, I went off insulin completely. Now, I’m down to 1 Metformin a day instead of 5 and by the end of this Reboot, I’ll be off of it altogether…My lifeline is the community here and I am in contact with my support network daily. No-one ever has to be alone here, and for that, I am forever indebted.” Read more about Kate’s drastic weight loss journey.

100 Pounds Down & Now Buys Clothes off the Rack

“I feel as though juicing was the exact thing that I needed to jump-start my new healthy life. It gave me food discipline and made me become more aware and thoughtful of the food that I was placing into my body. I believe I will always have juicing as a part of my life, it has helped to put me on a path to health and wellness and I think that path would have been much more difficult without juicing.” Reach Richard’s full journey.

Four Diseases Gone, 45 Pounds Lighter

“I had a blood test just 4 weeks after I started my first Reboot and 7 previously abnormal results were back to normal. I had asthma for around 40 years, high cholesterol, high uric acid and gout. The most remarkable thing is that they have all gone now and I am no longer on any medication. I am hoping that none of them come back but I have every reason to be optimistic. My wife and others keep telling me I look younger so I guess that says something.” Read Andy’s full Reboot Success Story.

Camp Reboot Changed My Life

“Going to Camp Reboot has been the best thing that has ever happened to me in a very long time. It has given me a purpose and a new drive in my life. Meeting the amazing new friends and family I now have that I can call on whenever I am weak. There are not enough words to explain the feelings I have. I am tearing up as I sit here typing this.” Read Lou’s full story on his experience during and after Camp Reboot.

How I Melted Away Physical and Mental Weight

“Let me start by saying I have always been aware of health & healthy eating & exercise coming from a vegetarian upbringing right from birth. Over the years though I have struggled with emotional eating & consequently my weight has yo-yoed more than once to various degrees.” Read Karen’s journey to find out how she gained control of her life.
