Juicing: A road to health and a KICK@SS Immune system

Have you ever woken up in the morning and you’re as tired as the night before? You always feel sluggish, unmotivated, and downright ill with fatigue? Are you the type that gets sick easily?

Well, this is your introduction into “Juicing”. I will try to simplify it here through the story of my friend Ian. I would go watch the free documentary on juicing though-it’s very informative and impactful. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=www.fatsickandnearlydead.com&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is a 2010 American documentary film which follows the 60-day journey of Australian Joe Cross across the United States as he follows a juice fast to regain his health under the care of Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Nutrition Research Foundation's Director of Research.[1] Cross and Robert Mac, co-creators of the film, both serve on the Nutrition Research Foundation's Advisory Board.[2][3] Following his fast and the adoption of a plant-based diet, Cross lost 100 pounds and discontinued all medications.[4][5](from wikipedia)

Ian, like most people, was an active athlete through high school and college, he had many injuries, which he would overcome one by one. The older he got, the more those injuries hurt.
After waking up one day, completely exhausted and frustrated about his gradual weight gain, weighing in at 265 at 5’8, a good friend told him to watch the documentary above. He started juicing for 2 meals a day for months. He started out with a mild and easy recipe, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, whey protein and milk.   ...After a few weeks of this, the weight started to come off and Ian started to feel more alive and have quite a bit more energy.(TRUST ME!!!! There is not a MORE efficient way to get this many vegetables and fruits in your system...there are a TON of recipes you will like!! I have a shake board on Pinterest (search Mrs Petri Dish shakes))

A few months later Ian started working hard in the gym and weight training.  Another few months, he added HIIT workouts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-intensity_interval_training) and longer gym sessions. This is Ian’s before and after and how juicing and a balanced diet can help you lose weight.

*the first time Ian made me do these I couldn't make it down both flights.
Now we do sets of 15 (double staircase,) with push-ups on each step.

Ian trains harder than most anyone I know, and he will do crazy workouts
