First day of my 60-day reboot and so far, so good. Had a green juice first thing this morning (kale, cucumber, celery, lemon, granny-smith apple and some collard greens) and followed it half an hour later with a cleansing cocktail (beet, apple, ginger and carrot). In spite of my best efforts, I did feel lethargic and depressed most of the day and I'd love the luxury of lying in bed all day like Joe did in the movie. Every day completed is one day closer to my goal though, and I'm going to see this through to the end.
Funny thing, I have watched the film at least a dozen times, but it wasn't until the tenth viewing that I realized Dr. Fuhrman practiced medicine in Flemington, New Jersey when the movie was made in 2007. I've lived nearby for about ten years now and had no idea a documentary was being filmed so close to home. I don't know if Fuhrman is still there, but I'll look him up when the fast is over and tell him how much influence he's had in my life.
Not keeping score of weight lost this time. I'm going to juice fast for 60 days and not weigh myself until after the fast has been completed. If I get caught up in the metrics I'll lose sight of the big picture. Beginning weight though is 352 pounds and my bodyfat percentage is 32% (which translates to 112 pounds of fat that I'm carrying around with me). Blood pressure remains dangerously high but I'm hoping this will also do the trick.
