Another day down

Well starting the juice/liquid fast off has not been too hard so far. I have had some nice berry/grape breakfast juices and spinach/carrot/berry/grape blends for my other meals with some carrot juice soup. As of this morning I am down 6.2 pounds after two days on my new fast. The weight I gained while on vacation seems to be evaporating. (Click continue reading for more…)

Back from Vacation, the good and the bad. Juice Fast 2 Day 1

Well the good news is that I had a fantastic time with my family. We were active everyday going to the beach, walking, and riding bikes 5+ miles a few days with our kids on the back of them. It was a blast and I feel very refreshed. The bad news is that I was totally off any sort of any sensible eating. I did not binge, but I did indulge in desserts, high fat foods and eating out quite a bit. I gained a little over 9 pounds in about 9 days! (Click continue reading for more…)

The final days of the first leg of my trip, days 33, 34 and 35!

Well yesterday was day 35 and that is it for this liquid/juice fast.  The last three days were a blur, but the good news is that in 35 days I lost 38.2 pounds.  I will take a little over a pound a day anytime!  This fast had definitely had it’s ups and downs, but overall I became used to it and it became a part of my life.  I would like to thank Joe Cross and his movie “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” for giving me the idea and his website forums for helping me through this process.  Though it was my willpower, it was most assuredly their words of encouragement that helped me through this.  I also want to thank Joe Rogan and Bert Kreischer for all the great podcasts and comedy that helped push me over the edge to want to make a change.  Joe’s kale shakes were what got me on the road to thinking about meal replacements, and Bert just did his own liquid cleanse and has talked about healthy choices on the podcast many times.

Days 24 and 25 – Onward and Downward

Well it has been a couple of days, but I have still been plodding along through my liquid/juice fast. The last couple of days I have pretty much been spot on. I am happy to report that on both Thursday and Friday I did a 9.5 mile ride at about 12MPH! That is pretty good, and on Friday I did a separate weight training workout in the gym with my trainer. I am feeling great and the weight is still dropping off. Today is Saturday (morning) as I write this and I weighed in this morning and have dropped down to 319.6 which is 32.2 pounds down total in a touch over 25 days! (Click continue reading for more)

Day 17 – Going in the right direction…

Best news of the day when I woke up is that I am down to 326.6! That is 2.4 pounds from the morning of the day 17. I am glad to see that I am still going to see some decent surges after my plateaus. It is really motivating and keeps me on the right track with this sort of diet/reboot. It is not easy, but one of the great benefits is the fairly consistent drops in my weight. I have now lost 26.2 pounds as of my 18th morning on this juice/liquid fast. That is pretty good as far as I am concerned. (click continue reading for more)

Vacation Day 4: Mostly a casual day…

It was a stay at the timeshare kind of day. We woke up, went to the pool, I went to Starbucks to write and the kids took a nap. At night was went to the pool again and ordered some more Giordanos pizza (soooo hard to be good with that here.) I loved days like that since I am not a crowds type person so it was great.

Vacation Days 1 and 2: Getting back on, but still on vacation

Ok so this is not the ideal time to try to get back on the horse as far as diets go.  Being in Orlando on a family vacation with my father in law here as well has some challenges when it comes to eating and eating out.  I am proud to say that since I lived here in Orlando for 3 years I was all about going to Publix and getting some sandwich stuff and fruit.  We also brought kind bars and popchips.

Day 26 post resort, The trip home…

Not too much to comment on today, it was a travel day so I spent time getting some healthy snacks for the plane, and I was not able to get a workout in since I had to return something at Best Buy while still in Phoenix. No cheating but definitely a sub-optimal eating day. I am still excited about all the new readers the article over on That’s Fit has brought to the site. Welcome one and all. I promise better food and workouts coming soon! These vacations can be rough!
