Weight at end of Feb. 2014: 263.8
Weight at April 26, 2014: 230.0
Today was a landmark day! My weight has melted away to this new low of 230 pounds. Still a long ways to go, for certain but progress is now substantial.
This past week I visited my doctor for a check up on how things look internally. When I saw her before Juicing began I had high blood pressure and was a freight train headed for a heart attack or stroke. Today my Doctor informed me that I now have normal blood pressure and she congratulated me whole heartedly.
But the road ahead is still long.
As stated many times in my blogs, my goal was never about weight loss. It has for certain about better health. I have begun running and with my juicing the results speak for them self.
Are you feeling hopeless? Have you tried all the diets you can handle? Failed at all? May I suggest the reason? In my mind and from what I have learned is that our intake (the food we eat) is balanced all wrong. North Americans typically consume 80% wheat products/oily cooked potatoes, meat and pasta, and the juice we get from the grocer is so processed we only get less than 10% of the goodness we are hoping for. Further to that, the 20% veggies we eat are steamed or sautéed (stir fried) and that process alone removes 80% of what should be good for us but is now depleted.
Junk Food, such as burgers, wings, deep fried everything, are not only void of any nutrients but actually deplete (rob) our existing nutrients and defence mechanisms. We are killing ourselves one combo meal at a time.
There is no need for strokes, no need or heart attack or memory loss, etc, etc. If we just replenish our bodies with the nutrients it needs and cut down (I say cut OUT) all the crap…wow, it's only logical that our bodies will begin to re invigorate. You don't have to starve yourself, on veggies you can devour as much as you like! If you add some fibre and protein to it (powder and or actual slices of fruits, etc) You WILL feel full and you WILL make it through your day successfully fixing all the wrong you've done to it all these years.
I speak from experience. There is hope for you. Give juicing three days and you will begin to understand how your life will feel so much better on this new road you have chosen.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
