They say it takes 30 days for something to become a habit, but it only took 21 days.
I was speaking with a co-worker about the juicing experience. She is an elderly lady that has survived breast cancer, double masectomy, and now had diabetes. I told her how much better I have felt since I started juicing.
She mentioned some of her diet restrictions; no pineapple or other foods high in natural sugar. I was kind of stumped for a moment since many of the foods she mentioned were good for you. So, I had told her that I had started a gluten-free diet back in August. By going gluten-free I was able to stop Prednisone and Plaquenil since I felt so much better and no longer had inflammation. The doctor for Wheat Belly states that wheat actually increases the blood sugar level. Then I explained how much healthier I felt from juicing.
The following day she came to my desk and asked what was in the drink I had yesterday, so I told her. She said that the small cup she drank not only filled her up – she doesn’t eat much now days - she had so much energy throughout the day. She said:
It felt like I had wings.
I told her that she may want to try the boost juice next. She said she would probably be flying around the office for real. She couldn’t thank me enough. Then she asked what was in the drink I had that day: kale, spinach, parsley, lemon, apples, carrots, celery, beet and ginger root. She said she would definitely try juicing to help her.
I am glad that I could help someone think outside the realm of their normal diet and explore another option that could benefit them in the long run.
