Inspiration from Joe Cross, the Juicer

I am planning to restart one more of my failed fitness goals, which is juicing at least once a week.  The inspiration for juicing came from the movie, “Fat, sick and nearly dead”. I watched this movie by Joe Cross, sometime in 2012. This movie provided great inspiration, especially the second main character, Phil Staples. At the end of the movie, we were clapping and cheering for Phil when (Spoiler Alert) he puts on the T-Shirt that Joe gives him and starts running.

The journey of juicing began sometime after watching this movie. First, I bought the juicer from and came across the website which had recipes, meal plans and a forum (whole nine yards) to get started on juicing. I successfully finished the 10-day reboot sometime last year.

The 10-day reboot was, to be honest, difficult. The first 10-day reboot did not go well and I juicinghad to stop after three days because I woke up in the middle of the night very hungry and dizzy. I grabbed what I could eat as I was in no mood to juice. I then decided to plan properly for the second reboot. The second 10-day reboot was well planned and I persisted with it and succeeded. I also maintained a dairy of all the juices that were palatable to me and the ones that were not. There were a couple of juices that I could not gulp down but other than that the taste was not that bad. The reason it was difficult was because 10-days is a long time to go without eating meat and carbs.

Once the 10-day reboot was finished, I have not gone back to juicing again but the goal was to juice at least once a week.

For months the juicer was on the counter but then it was moved into the pantry as it was reminding me of my failed experiment. It is now back on the counter and  ready to go. I am planning to do a reboot sometime this month and hopefully will stick to juicing at least once a week after that. I personally think that there are many benefits to juicing and you can find that out in the link below.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
