About 5 years ago I was in the best shape of my life. I was fit, I was healthy, and I looked amazing!
Shortly after I got out of the Air Force I stopped working out, and replaced workouts with food and before I knew it I had gained almost 50lbs.
Now, I know I had an addiction problem, but then I felt normal. I would get so excited when it was time to eat.
I'd go to bed with chips, cookies, soda, or whatever unhealthy food I could find to get my fix.
I know you're thinking…What does this have to do with hair?
Stay with me…
Along with the weight came a terrible immune system, migraines, and increased medications for my asthma.
I couldn't be in the salon as much, couldn't create that many new products, and the list goes on…all from feeling sluggish and too sick to do anything most of the time.
I even remember being so sick that after one of my Seminars I drove myself to the Emergency Room.
The worst thing was seeing my hair thin out in the top. I knew it was my
addiction to food that was causing all of these issues so in January of this year I decided to get my health back!
I started a tough workout plan and food plan by eating 6 small meals per day. I have to admit, I struggled through it.
I stuck to the plan about 60%. By April I was 90% on the plan and looking amazing!
Around May I noticed I had less energy and was feeling sluggish.
The more I ate the heavy foods on my plan the worse I would feel.
I know my body very well so I decided it was time to get the junk out!
Since I'm good friends with the #1 Raw Food King (Dan McDonald AKA The Life Regenerator) I decided to go on a 40 day Juice Feast!
Today is my first day and I will only be drinking Fresh Juice made in my juicer for 40 days!
My last one was 21 days and I cannot begin to tell you how amazing and how productive I was.
If you're feeling like me and need a reboot I challenge you to join me!
Dan has 3 DVDs that I will be using to get my juice recipes from…
1. Juicing For Energy & Peak Performance
2. Green Juice Recipes For Radiant Health & Beautiful Skin
3. Green Juice Recipes For Detox & Regeneration
There's also a TON of free recipes on his YouTube channel.
