HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT REBOOT YOUR LIFE?
A guy at work was in the middle of his 30 day Reboot and he told me to watch “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” on Netflix. He insisted that I do it before the end of the day. So I watched it on my iPhone before my shift was over. After watching the movie, I said immediately I was in. However, I didn’t have money to buy a juicer, so when his Reboot was over he let me borrow his Breville!
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO DO A REBOOT?
After watching the movie, I knew I had to at least try it, and when I started I counted out the 60 days and found out that my 61st day was April 20th, the same day that my father passed.
HOW DID THE EXPERIENCE GO FOR YOU?
My experience was not too hard. The 1st day I had a hunger headache, 2nd day was ok, 3rd day I was really sluggish, and after that I was fine. During the 2nd week I had no energy to do anything, but I wasn’t hungry.
DID YOU HAVE ANY NOTABLE HEALTH OR PHYSICAL IMPROVEMENTS?
I have been trying to lose weight since 3rd grade. I have always had a beer belly and I don’t even drink beer! After the 1st week, my stomach was gone and the weight just started falling off. It was really amazing how fast I was losing weight. I have tried P90X and only lost 50 pounds after 4 months of working out for 4 hours and running everyday. I have tried every weight loss pill and every diet. Nothing worked.
WHAT WAS THE TOUGHEST PART ABOUT THE REBOOT?
The toughest part about the Reboot was having to still take my wife out to eat and cooking for her and my son. My wife is 5’9 and 120 pounds soaking wet, so she felt like she did not need a Reboot. The one thing that it did do was build up my will power towards food. Watching her eat at all the best restaurants in Dallas was torture, but it made me strong.
WHAT HABITS HAVE YOU MAINTAINED AS PART OF YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE?
I still juice. I try to juice for at least one meal a day. I see now that I was really addicted to food, so I know there are just some things I can not have as part of my life.
WHAT IS YOUR LASTING IMPRESSION OF THE REBOOT?
My lasting impression of the Reboot experience is that it is life changing. I have inspired about 50 people and counting to try Rebooting. My cousin was 214 pounds and dropped 25 pounds in 21 days and encouraged his wife to get started. She is currently on her 50th day of her 60 day Reboot. He was so inspired by the documentary and other research about vegetables, that he, his wife and their 3 kids are all vegetarians now. He and I are so motivated that we have created a page on Facebook called Juice Mode U.S.. We are also in the process of making a YouTube channel for Juice Mode U.S. as well. Our motivation is to try to inspire people that we don’t know without being intrusive.
I personally feel no matter how old, fat, or skinny you are, everyone should try the Reboot experience!
