we need to talk about juicing

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_4.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_5.jpgIMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpgIMG_9.jpg I first heard of juicing a few years ago when it was becoming a popular form of ‘cleansing’ among celebrities. More like a admittance to a dangerous new diet fad. These already emancipated celebs were suddenly losing even more weight at an alarming pace. Since then, I have frowned upon anyone who juices to drop the pounds. That is, until one documentary on Netflix caught my attention. It is called Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead.

When my husband and I first came across FSND, I assumed that it would be just another film on health and obesity. The moment it started, it played as if it were a Saturday morning cartoon. I was instantly drawn in. It became real when Joe Cross, the director/protagonist, revealed that he was actually quite sick with an autoimmune disease and would be adopting a 60 day juice cleanse. While I immediately became skeptical, I was also curious to see if he could pull it off. Cross seemed like a truly genuine person who was set on ridding himself of his painful disease and numerous pills, and who was excited about regaining control over his body. You can’t help but root for him, but beyond that, I was relating to him. By the end of the documentary, I was extremely motivated to try juicing out for myself.

I have my own health reasons for beginning my juicing journey. For those of you who want to or have already tried it, you will as well. I also believe that going on cleanses is not for everyone. However, if you or I or anyone were to replace one meal with a juice every once in awhile, we would be surprised as to how much energy that we have, and how good our insides  would feel. When I do it, it’s almost as if my organs are rejoicing in the sweet, deliciousness that I have just provided them with. I know that the more I juice, the more I crave one of these simple, yet healthy little snacks. So why not try it out for yourself? #YOLO

  1. Super cool! I’ve thought about juicing but I get STARVING and then really crummy feeling when that happens so I’m not sure how it would go. Replacing 1 meal a day sounds like a good way to do it! Thanks for sharing!
