Name: Jerry S.
Location: Clearfield, UT
Reboot: 50 day all juice Reboot in Jan-Feb 2012, 60 day all juice Reboot in Jan-Feb 2013
Health Improvements: I began the first Reboot over 345 pounds and I ended my last Reboot at 222 pounds. 2012 I was prescribed medication for high cholesterol. Now I have normal cholesterol, no medications needed.
How did you learn about Reboot with Joe?
I found Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” on Netflix. Then I looked up information online to help me in my journey.
What inspired you to do a Reboot?
My sister sent me a picture of myself at my highest weight and most unhappiest. It was an eye opener. I made a decision that I needed to get healthy for myself and my wife and kids. I wanted to be an energetic dad, not someone who sits on the couch and watches the kids from the sidelines.
How did the experience go for you?
It took a lot of will power but after I did it for a time (about a week), it was easier. The second Reboot was easier in some ways because I knew I could do it.
Did you have any notable health or physical improvements?
I had an obvious weight loss of 123 pounds. I was also on cholesterol medications and now am off them with normal cholesterol. I was also pre-diabetic and now am healthy with no discernible risk of diabetes.
What was the toughest part about the Reboot experience?
Watching other people eat foods that I really wanted to eat. The smell of food would drive me insane.
What habits have you maintained and kept a part of your everyday life?
I now eat all types of vegetables and have for the two years. I used to avoid them at all costs. Now I actually enjoy vegetables. I’ve maintained my weight loss within 5-10 pounds. I run on a treadmill for one hour a day. I’m active and chase after my daughter who is very active.
What is your lasting impression of the Reboot experience?
I could really relate to Joe and Phil as I was also an over the road driver. Now I am a stay at home dad and living a much healthier lifestyle for me and my family. This experience has changed my life. I have committed to this permanent change in my life.
