When I tell people I'm changing my diet - the average American assumes it's to shed some pounds, boost my self esteem, or maybe even have bragging rights. I haven't even started my raw diet and I've already suffered much teasing and antagonizing.
Well too bad - I'm going Raw!
Most people don't understand what it means to be Chronically Ill. I've spent the better part of the last four years in doctors offices, researching and reading different books, even trying various life style changes to try healing my body. Those who have yet to suffer from every day pain and disease have yet to reach that absolute low of willing to try anything to make a difference in the day to day life.
So tomorrow morning I'll turn on my Breville Juicer for the first time and try my hand at my new hobby of Juicing. I've decided to follow Joe's 3 day Reboot Plan then start transitioning to a more Vegan Style living. After 60 days I should know if this new lifestyle can help overcome the daily challenges my Chronic Illnesses bring.
Who knows, maybe I'll loose some unwanted pounds along the way!
