    Hello Healthy Reboot Friends.........

    Hello Healthy Friends, what is everyone up to? An important post reboot item for me has been maintaining a healthy LIVER. I am one of those people that supports research that indicates a hidden factor of weight gain is a Tired and Toxic Liver. So I have spent some time studying the liver, in hopes of achieving and maintaining a healthy liver. I was shocked to learn that the liver has 500 different jobs, and that it functions as a filter cleansing our system of toxins, metabolizes fats/proteins/carbohydrates, control hormonal balance, and produce immune boosting factors. Many of these functions have a direct bearing on my weight loss and weight maintenance efforts. I always suspected that I had fatty liver disease, and did not understand how I got it because I do not drink alcohol. Then I learned that the liver converts fructose into triglycerides, which can eventually turn into another source of excess body fat and lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. I was eating too much sugar, especially fructose. CHANGE #1: I no longer eat any sugar, except for an occasional manduka honey spoonful in my tea when I feel a sore throat coming on.



    My number one detoxifying drink is 1 ounce of organic unsweetened cranberry juice in 7 ounces of water. Cran-Water is a potent source of phytonutrients such as anthocyanins, catechins, luteins, and quercetin. They all supply nutritional support and co-factors for the liver's detox pathways. These nutrients also seem to help digest fatty globules in the lymph reducing my cellulite deposits. Yippeeeeee. I started using dandelion root, milk thistle, turmeric and Oregon grape root during my reboot, and have continued with these lipotropic substances because I have noticed that they continue to decrease the fat storage rate in liver cells (according to my blood work) and accelerate fat metabolism. I am excited to say that I have successfully eliminated caffeine, sugar, alcohol, yeast based foods, trans fat, margarine, vegetable shortening, and commercial vegetable oils like canola oil. These food items can seriously disrupt liver function by clogging the detox pathways or increase candida production. The yeast related poison acetaldehyde is extremely toxic to the liver and inhibits fat burning. It is definitely worth it to avoid any type of yeast infection. Studying the liver has helped me maintain my weight loss, and has improved my overall health. I hope this information is helpful to others too. Juice On........

    RM, thank you for the information. I agree that getting the liver to function at its best is a key to weight loss. How much and in what form do you take the dandelion root, milk thistle, turmeric, and Oregon grape root?

    Hey Shari, I am still taking the Fat Flush Weight Loss Formula that I mentioned to you last year. It has Turmeric, Dandelion, Milk Thistle, and Oregon Grape in it, along with Vit C, B6, Niacin, Chromium, Lipase, Choline, Inositol, L-Carnitine, L-Tartrate, DL Methionine, L-Lysine, L-Leucine, Lecithin. I really notice a difference on it. I am also still taking the other two products I mentioned to you last year from the Fat Flush Plan: GLA-90 (gamma linolenic acid), and CLA-1000 (conjugated linoleic acid). There are other great brands out there too that have these items in their blends. I recently had my annual blood work, and my liver function has really improved, along with my continuing fat loss. I think these products are helping me keep the 80 plus pounds I lost on my juice only reboot last year.

    Ok, I thought you meant you were taking them separately. I am still taking GLA and CLA but not the fat flush since I ran out of that. I also am taking a different brand of GLA and CLA since the Uni Key brand was so expensive. I gained weight back with some bad eating at the family reunion and afterward, but I am working on losing that now. The last two days I have lost 5.2 pounds, which is a miracle for me. That leaves 5.8 more pounds to go to get to where I was after the juice fast.

    Wednesday, June 7th. How is everyone doing with their post reboot food plans? What positive changes have you continued and recommend to others. It is great when we learn from each other. I have been studying fiber, and it's role in maintaining weight loss and creating a healthy microbiome in your gut. Here is a great article I found, if you want to read it yourself. Fiber is definitely a Post Reboot item, as the lack of fiber during a juice only reboot is what makes it work. The lack of fiber creates the Famine cycle, which starts the fast fat burning process.



    https://www.drkellyann.com/blog/eat-more-fiber-to-...



    Why Fiber? The good bacteria in your gut have a favorite food...it's fiber. Our digestive enzymes don't break down the fiber we eat from vegetables and other sources. So the fiber remains intact as it moves through our digestive tract. And as it travels, the healthy microbes in our gut feed off the fiber's vitamins, nutrients, and short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). When we do not get enough fiber, these microbes starve and then can die off or start eating the gut's mucus lining. This can make the gut wall become permeable, aka Leaky Gut Syndrome, and prone to infection. And then our immune systems starts getting weak, and the inflammation makes us more susceptible to obesity.



    How Much Fiber Do We Need? Here’s your goal: Add more fiber-rich foods into your diet on a daily basis. The daily basis part of eating fiber is a key here. Animal studies have found that eating adequate fiber even every other day can reduce the gut mucous layer by 50% compared to getting enough fiber daily. Researches have found that the bacteria in the gut can quickly change for the worse as soon as you stop getting enough fiber. Fiber recommendations for women are 25 to 30 grams daily, and men 30-38 grams of fiber daily. Compare those numbers with the numbers from our hunter gatherer ancestors, who got 100 grams of fiber a day by eating roots, berries, leaves, and other plants.



    What are the best sources of fiber? Vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. But whole grains have negative effects that cancel out their benefits, such as the presence of phytic acid which interferes with the absorption of calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc. Nutritionists recommend that we get our fiber primarily by eating lots of vegetables, along with modes amounts of fruits, nuts, and seeds. The best sources are avocado, leafy and cruciferous veggies like broccoli and spinach, raw almonds, and berries.



    And don't forget some pre-biotic fiber. Prebiotics are a type of dietary fiber that literally feed your good gut flora. Prebiotic fiber resists digestion, instead heading to your colon where it creates awesome energy producing short chain fatty acids. Prebiotics fall into several categories, including fructans and resistant starch. Each type feeds different healthy gut flora. We get our prebiotics from food like raw chicory root, Jerusalem artichokes, dandelion greens, garlic, and onions. Combining these prebiotic rich foods with foods rich in gut friendly solube fiber like apples, ground flaxseeds, and nuts, steady your blood sugar response to keep you fuller longer while they feed your good gut bacteria.

    Happy Sunday Everyone! I had a fabulous healthy food day, drinking 64 ounces of juice and lots of water. I just was not hungry for anything else. It got me thinking about my Post Reboot routines that are helping me keep the weight off. I take a good probiotic everyday, but I also add one of the many powdered greens products out there to my juice everyday. I did not do this when I was just juice only, because I was drinking so 4-6 cups of juiced greens everyday that I did not need it. Now that I am post reboot, I drink at least 32 ounces of juice everyday and add a good organic powdered green to my juice. I found a good one that has spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass, kale, broccoli sprouts, collard greens, brussel sprouts, and beets in it. Besides the beets, I just do not juice these items so it is handy to find it in a organic powdered form. The spirulina, chlorella, and wheat grass are all great sources of protein and essential amino acids, so I was looking for a product that had a least these three items in it.



    I used to use a product called Great Greens by Arise and Shine, but they stopped making it for awhile. So I found another great product called "Immuno Build Greens, by Rainbow Light. It is a fabulous product and I use it everyday. It has even more 'good stuff' in it, than the Great Greens product did. It has Organic Veggie and Greens Blend, Antioxidant Fruits & Herbal Extracts, Organic Mushroom Cellular Defense Complex, and a Complete Digestive Support Complex. The important thing is that it keeps the food cravings, temptations, and food addictions away. So if you are having problems post reboot, and are worried about returning to some bad eating habits, check out some of the great powdered green products out there and add them to your daily juice or smoothie. They have really helped me, and I have been able to easily maintain my 80 plus pounds in weight loss and have had no colds or flu's since I started my reboot last year. I hope this information helps.

    RM - It's so great that you posted about pro-biotics!



    I'm reading a book by a neurologist called BRAIN MAKER. He's talking about the composition of your gut bacteria, and its link to brain diseases like dementia, Alzheimer's, M.S., ADHD, Autism, etc. He also talks about cravings - there is a bad bacteria in your gut that survives on junk food. If that bacteria is out of balance with the good bacteria, it contributes toward junk food cravings. That bad bacteria is also more capable of retaining fat from food that goes through the intestines. The more bad bacteria you have, the more weight you gain and the more bad food you crave. He has a food plan for resetting the bacteria in your gut at the end of the book, and one of the tools is probiotics!

    Anna, Dr. David Perlmutter is one of my favorite physicians and his book "BRAIN MAKER: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain for Life is a must read. I am so glad you picked it up. The more I learn about probiotics and the good bacteria in our digestive system, the more I realize that maintaining our weight loss and health is so dependent on the microbes in our gut. I will write more about this later, but I did alot of research on this last year and the other thing I found out is that Bifidus is more important for weight loss and maintaining a natural healthy weight, than any of the other probiotics out there (for example lactobacilius, et al). That is why I focused in on Dr. O'Hhira's probiotic products, because although they have a balanced probiotic blend they include a higher percentage of the Bifudus blends. The healthier my gut microbiome has become, the cravings for sugar, fast food, and excessive eating declines. This is huge for me.

    Hi Starting my second 60 day reboot. Im concerned Ill lose my weight and wont be an individual anymore. Being the biggest guy in the room for years has been my MO. I know its in my head but that's what I need to change. Wish me luck :-)

    Welcome Stuart How wonderful to hear that you are starting your second 60 day reboot. Your body is so happy about the high density nutrition you are supplying. I am not quite sure how to interpret your sentence about "not being an individual" after the two healthy reboots. I look at your weight loss and improved health as a precious process to reveal all that you already are, and up to now was just hidden away for safe keeping. Does that make sense?

    I like understanding that things are always evolving, and while there are many things that could be better where I am, it is not really a problem because where I am is constantly changing to something better. I like knowing that as I look for the best things around me where I am, those things become more prevalent . We all have the ability to quickly change our thought patterns, and eventually our life experiences. I take 15 minutes daily to think of pleasant scenarios with the sole intent of enjoying and appreciating my body's strength, stamina, flexibility, and beauty. When I visualize for the joy of visualizing rather than with the intention of correcting some deficiency, my thoughts seems to be more powerful. When I visualize to overcome something that is wrong, my thoughts are diluted with the weaker "lackful" side of the equation. Over the last year, I have observed that my dominant thoughts have become more joyful about my health and my physical condition, because of the 100 day juice only reboot I completed. I hope this discussion helps, and I look forward to your next update.

    Stuart, I hear you! You're afraid of losing your identity. I often think of this line, which I picked up from a P90X commercial: "I went from being the fattest in the room to the fittest in the room." I liked that, it gave me a destination. Identities can change; they are what we make them.

    RM - Great advice!

    Yesterday I finished my second juice fast, this one for 35 days. I lost 17 pounds and 11.5 inches over 6 measurements this time. As of this morning, I only have 8.4 pounds left to lose to get to my goal weight. That is the lowest weight I have been at for many years. My loss rate was less than it was for the first juice fast, but I'll take it. Maybe the less you have to lose, the harder it is to lose it. I brought down more clothes from the attic this week that fit again and put away those that are now too big. That felt good.

    WooooHoooooo, you brought down more clothes from the attic that now fit. That is fantastic. Yes, get rid of those big girl clothes because I am confident that you are not going back to that condition. Congrats Shari, I am so proud of you. What does your transition look like for the next few weeks?

    RM, my transition has not been much of a transition since I had to make food for the family reunion today. I ate some of that yesterday and will take some to the family reunion today. I ended up gaining back some weight, so now the weight remaining to lose is 10 pounds. Weekdays are more scheduled for eating with being at work, so that should be better.
