Had a great visit at the Doctor’s office (other than the fact that there is a soda machine in the lobby – tsk, tsk). Everything looked good and Doc was pleased with our progress and to paraphrase him … it looks like what you’re doing is working, keep doing it.
So we are going to do a 15 Day Juice Reboot next based on the film Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.
To wrap up the health stats, the Doctor only had 2 concerns — that our Vitamins B12 & D are low for both of us. It’s not in the TOO Low range yet, but it is lower than he’d like to see it. We do not have a baseline for our Vitamin B12 & D levels before now – as that is not part of a normal blood test. In fact, we had to ask and be willing to pay for it outside of what our meager health insurance covers.
If we hadn’t asked, we still wouldn’t know, either. Bottom line – NO ONE, and I do mean NO ONE is going to care for your health the way you have the power to.
So… to breeze us into Phase 2 and a whole lotta juice, we have purchased the Breville Dual Disc Juice Processor to make juicing in large quantities easier. I LOVE my Omega juicer, but if we are going to have 4-6 large juices a day, it simply would take too long. However I may still juice my greens in it and add that to the mix. We’ll See…
