Hi colours,
I watched it last year. i did the vegie juice thing for ten days and dropped off 9Kg. I had a good breakfast each day and replaced all other meals with fresh vegie juice , I got bad headaches at day 2, then realised I had not drank any water, I started drinking heaps of water and felt great the whole time, not hungry either but shit I drank a lot of juice. cartons of vegies every couple of days.

I still do the odd vegie juice with stuff from my AP, There isnt much you cant put through a juicer. I found it best to add a small amount of fruit to make it taste better.

Wow really? Did you find it easy to keep it off? I was thinking of replacing one meal per day, I prob only need to lose 5kg but I'm trying to build muscle so don't want to skip on eating protein. Although I've always wanted to juice, I've never wanted to spend the doe on all those organic veg which I have now growing at my front door.


Interestingly I have never had tarragon in my life, but tried it tonight and now I'm hooked.

Soo can't wait for summertime and all the veg that it promises.

Yes its stayed off but I am also exersizing every day. One meal a day is easy to do also, making it my evening meal works best for me.

The vegies are the key for me, Ive never eaten as much veg as I do now, we grow more than we can eat so what we dont eat goes to the fish, the chooks, the worms or the compost bins'

I cooked up a big batch of Pumkin Soup a few nights ago, Picked the pumpkin fresh and cut it up while it was still warm from the afternoon sun. So much nicer than some refridgerated pumkin of unknown origins and shelf life.

With pumpkin soup I use either the jap or butternut. Cut in squares, leave skin on and seeds in. Cook in thermomix and blend. The oil from the seeds makes it creamy and the skin has the nutrients. Its great, but cold here for pumpkin but will give it a go in summer. With smoked trout.

Will dust off my juicer tomorrow ...

Well done blind Freddie!

I watched that movie on Netflix awhile back, one of the guys from work juices after watching that, but I haven't yet. I plan to. He is just having juice in lieu of breakfast I think, I'll ask him about it. I would like to do it as more of a nutritional supplement and to more easily use the leaves etc. grown in the AP system.

I've been getting into paleo (after being essentially vegan for 7 years) and juicing isn't really recommended cause it causes an insulin spike. I would only add enough fruit to make it palatable, but I went on retreat once and we did juices. We ate too. Everyone crashed at about day 3 prob from caffeine withdrawals or whatever. They were in filthy moods. But at the end of it we were all getting up early, walking, laughing so much energy. It was 7 years ago and looking back now I don't know why I ever stopped. Laziness I guess. Those juicers are a pain to clean.

Great movie! - I never paid any attention to what I ate until Christmas last year when I was told about a book called "Wheat Belly" after reading the book I went CDO (that's OCD in its right order) and jumped down the nutrition rabbit hole with both feet. I stopped eating wheat 05 JAN this year and lost 40 pounds in 14 weeks with no exercise and have stayed at 185 pounds - my weight when I joined the army in 1979.

The reason I found AP and built a system was so I knew what was in my food. If you haven't read Wheat Belly I can't recommend highly enough.

Yep, watched it a year or more ago.. Went on juice only for a bit over a week, surprised my that it was fairly simple to do once you get past the first couple of days, you didn't really feel hungry at all..

And yes, heaps of energy, lost weight, felt really bright and alert..

I streamed it on amazon. I have never been overweight, but I certainly eat healthy, and I certainly added more greens to my diet after watching it. Btw, way to go Jessie!
