What Health Issues apply to you?
Gout, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, IBS/Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Obesity
Did you Reboot to lose weight? Yes
How did you learn about Reboot with Joe?
An old colleague, who had transformed themselves via juicing, suggested that I watch the film Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.
What inspired you to do a Reboot?
I was morbidly obese and other diets hadn’t worked in any kind of sustainable way. Seeing the transformation that a colleague had achieved and watching Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead seemed to all make sense. It was a no brainer and something that I had to try for myself.
How did the experience go for you?
I completed a 5 Day Reboot. Days 2 to 3 were difficult with the dreaded detox headaches but it was actually easier than I thought it would be.
How much weight did you lose (even if that wasn’t your goal!)?
In that first Reboot (5 days) I lost about 9 lbs (4 kg). Since then, I have incorporated juicing into my daily life and I Reboot every 3 to 4 months or so. I lost over 80 lbs (36 kg) in 12 months and I’m still going!
Did you have any notable health or physical improvements?
Yes! Since incorporating juicing into my life I have abundant energy. My eyes and skin are clear and I feel very alert. My blood pressure and cholesterol are fine and I recently stopped having to take any medication for gout.
What was the toughest part about the Reboot experience?
The toughest part of everyday was when I got back home after a day at work. I was usually feeling quite hungry by this point. A large glass of water or an herbal tea was usually enough to get me through to the next juice of the day.
What habits have you maintained and kept a part of your everyday life?
I juice for breakfast & lunch every day Monday to Friday. In the evenings I eat a predominantly plant- based healthy meal. I stay away from dairy, refined white flour, refined white sugar and processed foods. On the weekends I am a little more flexible depending on what is happening socially and I usually share a typical Sunday lunch with my family. Juicing has been incorporated into my life forever!
What is lasting impression of the Reboot experience?
My lasting impression is that juicing has been the best thing that I have ever done for my health. So much so that I want to share the benefits of juicing as far and as wide as I can. I truly believe that juicing has given me my life back. You can follow my healthy journey on Twitter @exploreJuice!
