I watched this docu/film on Netflix the other day and was rather intrigued with the results the people presented gained from this dietary change. I have changed my eating habits to a much more healthy and sustainable diet over the last couple of years, both as a desire to change my health as it related to what I was eating and weight, as well as due to a health condition my wife has that results in her inability to eat many different types of foods.
In essence I eat almost no red meat, no fried foods (or rarely) or fast food perhaps once a week, I eat very little pasta (she can't) or breads. We eat lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, yogurt, cheese, chicken and pork perhaps three meals a week, fish one, potatoes, rice, etc. I have gotten to a point where when I do eat fast food I can tell how bad it makes me feel afterward. I never noticed this before changing my diet. I wouldn't go so far as to say I have "detoxed" in the spirit of the documentary, but certainly have made positive enough changes that I notice when I am not eating right almost immediately.
Since changing my diet, and with all the riding I am doing right now I have gotten down to the 210# range. I am currently riding around 95 miles a week, but that is down from what I normally average at around 150-200 due to some outside issues and time. I weighed around 180# for a long time until I started into my 30's and then went to around 220# and stayed pretty consistent with that until my accident. I would be super happy if I could get back below 200, and a goal of around 180-190#. My blood pressure has gotten much better over the last year, as well as my pulse rate.
I was considering doing the 10 day program with this juice thing, see if I can drop those pesky pounds that I cannot seem to get rid of with my regular regimen, and then go back to a more normal diet. The thing is that I have found unless I eat pretty well before most of my rides that I feel weak on the bike and in some cases will even start shaking a bit like hypoglycemia (which I have not been diagnosed with, or diabetes).
I was curious to know if any of you have tried this program and if so, what your results were while on it and riding?
