I watched this documentary today (on Netflix) after I read a post someone made about juicing. This was amazing. I highly suggest it for anyone who has Netflix. After watching it I think that I might start juicing and possibly go on a fast for a few weeks just to help clear out any gunk that still might be lingering in my system. Has any done this? And if anyone juices regularly, do you have any recipes that are really tasty?
I watched it on Netflix too! It was great and inspirational! I haven't tried juicing yet, but this movie made me and my canivorous boyfriend want to try it! It seems great to do a cleanse or short juicing fast every few months as they suggest in the film! If you do try it, please come back and post what you thought or felt while doing it! I plan to buy a nice juicer soon ( I need to save some money first).
I saw this movie about 3 weeks ago. I have been juicing for about 10 days now. I feel great. And I am surprisingly not hungry.I juice for breakfast and lunch and have a vegan dinner and vegan snacks if needed. Usually multigrain crackers with hummus. I weigh in Friday. But my clothes are bigger. I am going to also get my bloodwork checked and see how my cholesteral is doing. I have brought it down from 262 to 208 (as of 1 year ago) with diet alone. Since then I have gone vegan. It's exciting. I have a Juiceman juicer and it works awesome. I got mine at Bed Bath And Beyond for $99.00. Good luck.
I watched this several times in the last week--SO inspiration and Phil..omg, how CUTE is he?. I'm much more accustomed to seeing people with that type of extreame weight and health issue make a tiny attempt to get better, then just crash back into their normal habits. But wow, he just goes and goes! AND leaves his truck driving job for something more active! Unbelievable story.I wonder what Alicia thinks of juicing...
I'm dying for a juicer myself but there's not much room in my small apartment, plus money is tight...but I may attempt to save even longer and buy a Vitamix that can be a more useful multipurpose tool for me with my limited space. They say you can use one and just run the veggie puree through a nut milk bag. If anyone has tried this, please share you experience!
Anyone who is interested in a juicer, consider signing up for Bed Bath and Beyond's emails and you can get a coupon of some sort to use towards a juicer. Apparently they will take expired coupons as well!
P.S. This movie is available to rent on Amazon, too. I watched it free with my Amazon Prime account.
I recently purchased the Kaeng Raeng fast, recommended by Alicia. I can't wait for it to arrive! It is a juice fast as well.
As far as juicers go I was actually looking into the Ninja blender which bosts the fact that you can crush and puree anything including making amazing smoothes with fruits and veggies...leaving the oh so yummy pulp!
I recently bought the Ninja blender and love it! I use it for smoothies... usual have frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, bananas, and almond milk. I throw in some kale or spinach and ground flax seed too. They are yummy! Kohl's carries the blender I got mine on sale for $99 then had a coupon for 20 percent off. When I bought it they gave me $20 'kohls bucks' back. Felt like I came out pretty good!
I made juice by blending finely chopped fruit and veggies and pushing it through a fine metal mesh sieve. Yea, it was a bit of work, but it worked! I didn't even have a regular blender--just a stick blender.
We have been juicing for about 6 months with the Omega Vertical Juicer..our basic "green juice" consists of carrots, apples, spinach, kale and ginger. Just after 2 wks of 6 - 8 ozs it's unbelievable how much better you feel. This one is my favorite of all we tried. Last month with got a Norwalk juicer which makes the smoothest juice but is very expensive piece of equipment and alot of work making. After watching "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" we have a friend who is a 41 yr old male and he's done amazing after 4 weeks of just juice he's lost 51lbs and has more to loose but already feels so much better. FSND should be watched by EVERYONE.
