Last night was bittersweet for me as I finally wrapped up my epic book tour. I was originally due to visit Paramus, New Jersey back in February but the weather had other ideas and we had to reschedule due to heavy snow. Thanks for being so patient, Paramus, and for coming out last night to make my final book signing such a success.
What an incredible start to 2014 the book launch and tour have been – all thanks to you guys. I started out in Australia way back at the end of January, and from there I’ve been to England, Scotland, the US and Canada. 3 months and 30,690 miles later (that’s 1.2 times around the world!) here I am back in New York, having been lucky enough to meet over five and a half thousand of you at my book signings. Yes, 5,500. That’s a whole lot of Rebooters! I’m honored that so many of you came out to support me, hear my talk, ask some great questions – and wait so patiently in lengthy signing lines to meet me. Thank you all.
People have asked me where I found the energy to spend so long on the road, and plenty of liquid sunshine in the form of daily juice was certainly a part of it! More than that though, it was all of you. Meeting you all and hearing your stories of the way juicing has changed your lives is what energized and inspired me every day. I met people at every stage of their journey to health and weight loss – from those just starting to eat veggies to experienced Rebooters who have lost up to 100 lbs and drastically improved their health. You all took time out of your busy lives to join me and spend some time thinking and talking about juicing, fruits, veggies and my Reboot journey because you recognize how powerful our behavior can be to restore health. And that is what keeps me going!
Thanks also go to Amanda for all of her help on the road, and to my Reboot team back in New York for organizing the tour and all of the logistics behind this crazy ride we’ve been on!
I have so many happy memories and stories from the last 3 months, many of which I’ve shared on my blog. It’s great to have a record to look back on! To read more about my time on the road you can find my updates below, and see plenty more pictures on my facebook album.

So, that was the book tour – and now for the film! I am currently hard at work in the edit room finishing it off, and can’t wait to share it with you in September.
For all your support and encouragement on my tour, thank you.
