I watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead in December and was totally inspired! I bought a juicer and started drinking fresh juice for a couple meals a day and couldn't believe how good I felt. I had been on a "binge bender" since Thanksgiving - lots of work stress that I was trying stuff by eating and eating and eating
So for the new year I bought eat to live and read it from cover to cover. While I enjoy juicing and still incorporate fresh juice into my plan, it was time consuming and expensive to maintain ONLY consuming fresh juice. I've been following the ETL plan since early Jan and couldn't be happier. My fixation on carbs, sweets and excess is gone and I feel like I finally have found away to have a normal relationship with food. As an added bonus I've lost eight pounds - YAY
for each five pounds lost!
