Day 4 of 168
Yesterday was a good day. Felt fantastic all day long. Today, so far so good. I am continuing with my exercise program (treadmill for about 45 min to an hour with varying degrees of speed and incline). Juiced this morning 2 grapefruits, 1 orange, 3 carrots, and about an inch of ginger prior to taking my sov/rib which, along with some greek yogurt with cinnamon sprinkled on top seems to be enough for me to handle the morning regimen of pills. time for my afternoon juice of 2 beets, celery, carrots, and kale.
I have been juicing since the beginning of April in order to assist my liver in expelling the toxins. I have given up almost entirely all protein derived from animal fat/red meat due to effects this has on the liver and the rest of your body. My diet (actually a life change) for the past 5 months consists mostly of raw vegetables and fruit (from a to z and every color in the rainbow), salads with extra virgin olive oil and lime cooked vegetables, fish (mostly wild salmon for the omega 6), homemade vegetable soup, and FRESHLY JUICED VEGETABLES!!!! Spices used are: cinnamon, turmeric and celery seed. Anything and everything that is good for my liver/body is being eaten. Anything and everything that is bad for my liver/body does is not. ABSOLUTELY NO ADDITIONAL SALT. The great side effect of my starting to take care of myself is the loss of almost 40 lbs. So far, I have gone from 242 lbs to 203 (I am a 52 year old male, 6'0", non smoker) and a BMI index of 27.6 (started at 32.7). I am still considered in the overweight category for my BMI but I am positive that my body will adjust and get to where it needs to be in due time. The way I look at it now is that if my insurance company is willing to spend app 180K dollars on me for the 24 week tx, I will do everything in my power to assist this treatment in being successful and then not weighing on the health care system for the rest of my life....I fell that they have given me enough and I need to repay in the best way possible. We complain about the health care system and I am sure that it could be better but, they have given me the ability to save my life. I could not have done this without them. BCBS I Thank you, thank you, and thank you. It is day 4 and I feel great. I am sure that I will have bad days but I am also convinced that my attitude will remain positive. I will slay this disgusting diseased dragon.
