Maintaining the Transformation

Welcome to my Juicing and weight loss blog. This blog started as an online journal / diary for myself, as a way to keep me focused. After over 120 days of juicing 90% of my food. Adding walking into my lifestyle and then later doing Insanity and the P90X workout programs, the combination of these have helped eliminate and keep off over 70 pounds! With confidence, motivation, consciousness of what I am consuming and love for life and living, I am committed to improving overall health and maintaining it!

This blog is evolving into a way to reach out and touch the lives of thousands. Literally, thousands of people have read my story about how Joe Cross' Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead inspired me to change my life after Reboot with Joe ran this Success Story:

As a result of all the inquires, messages, comments, and requests for more information I started a facebook page Reboot Support. and then opened a facebook group page titled: Nutrition is King.

Nutrition is truly "King!" No matter how you look at it, the most important nutrients are those that your body is not getting. Once a body starts getting what it needs, it can be healthier. You have one body, keep it healthy!

Most people spend between $2.00 and $7.00 (between $30 and $210 a month) per meal. Assuming most people eat 3 meals or snacks a day, for 30 days (not counting if you have a soda, red bull, an energy drink a gourmet coffee as a pick me up or go out to lunch and dinner and leave a tip for the waiter), that's between $6 and $21 a day (between $180 and $630) for meals that generally are lacking most nutrients but are full of white flour, enriched ingredients stripped white sugar and possibly protein. Besides that, most meals especially "fast food" is lacking nutrients. Everyone, regardless if they are skinny, heavy, man, woman, child, elderly, a smoker, non-smoker, drinker, non-drinker, everyone needs nutrition and if they don't get nutrients their body will suffer. I get the equivalent of 5 salads filled with superfoods, nutrients and vitamins in one meal, and it is fast! Can you say, possibly one of the healthiest fast foods ever! All of that made up in 30 seconds, maybe, 2 minutes depending on if you use a shaker glass or a blender to mix yours. And it is highly nutritious too! 

Are you tired half way through the day and need a coffee or a red bull? Do you have cravings? Maybe you feel like you’re in a fog. Would you consider your digestion regular? If not, or if any of these apply to you, these are symptoms of poor nutrition. It means more than likely, you are vitamin and nutrient deficient.

When your body doesn’t get adequate amounts of nutrients, it reacts by making you feel hungry more often, gives you those “Sweet” cravings more often, you have trouble concentrating and your body gets tired.

The average diet is based on consuming 2,000 calories a day. You may need more or less depending on your specific circumstances.  Most people don’t get enough vitamins and nutrients because the foods we do eat lack nutrients and are mostly processed foods. When people attempt to lose weight, we drop our calories way back, which in turn typically drops out nutrition consumption even lower. We can not just cut calories without subsequently cutting back the volume of nutrients that we are taking in. This is why when most people are dieting, they feel physically drained, irritable, hungry and lose motivation. So they quit, gain all the weight back (often times more) and continue with this vicious cycle. Fueling our body with nutrients and vitamins is vital to overall health!

Daily, I drink Shakeology! Why do I do this? At only 140 calories, you get nearly all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs for that entire day. Plus 70 super-foods that can help regulate your body in many ways.

Fuel your body, don’t deprive it! Check out Shakeology here! 

If you are ready to make a full commitment to your health and improving your ability to do more, be active, possibly be more mobile and healthier as a whole, grab a challenge pack. A challenge pack is a combo pack that gives you shakeology and a workout program together, for less than getting them individually. You can view and compare challenge packs here.

No matter what you do, know that nutrients and vitamins are vital. Even if you love junk food, sodas, candy and lush foods, without nutrients you are depriving your body and soon it will get worse off. Do yourself a favor, if nothing else, spend about $4 a day, one meal a day, to improve your life and fuel your body with arguably the smartest and healthiest calories you can consume a day.. Seriously, most people spend that on a drink at a restaurant, an "energy" drink or even tipping a server, and get next to nothing in terms of nutrients and vitamins 

Shakeology is very versatile. It comes in 140-180 calorie servings. At 140 calories you can use it as a snack or a low calorie, highly nutrition meal replacement that will fuel your body. You could make it up to 300 calories for a full meal replacement. For someone wanting to put on weight, you can make it 600-800 calories, by adding extra clean foods and omega 3’s. There are several recipe ideas here on 

Personally I use almond milk as my base and I love it! Other options include milk, water, orange juice, or other nut milks. I use a nut base for flavor, but also as a way to avoid adding extra dairy in my system. About 1% of the U.S. population has some form of intolerance to milk or dairy so using a nut base milk, water or even orange juice (depending on the flavor of shakeology you are making) can lessen your chances of having a reaction to adding additional dairy to your lifestyle. Beachbody and Shakeology took this into consideration when they made their vegan (non-dairy) varieties; Tropical Strawberry and Chocolate Vegan

With a healthy body you can spend more time with family, friends, hobbies, your ambitions and possibly less time taking prescriptions, at the Doctor's office or missing activities and events due to being sick or under the weather.

This is your life. Nutrients can give a body the ability to heal itself and stay healthy longer. Make the choice today, to enhance your life and start being healthier!
