Ya that’s right, you read it correctly. I have official started juicing. Started yesterday and taking second dose today. Oh let me clarify. I don’t mean the shot a needle in my ass, balls shrink up kind of juicing. I am talking about juicing fresh fruits and vegetable to increase the micro-nutrition in my body. Sorry for the confusion and shame on you if you thought I was using steroids! I borrowed a juicer from one of my firehouse buddies because I wanted to try it. I, probably like the vast majority of us, do not intake as many micro-nutrients as I should…I don’t eat enough fruits and veggies. It’s not that I do not like fruits and veggies but it is just hard to eat enough after getting in my protein and carbohydrates. So I did some research after watching the documentary, “fat, sick and nearly dead” about the overall benefits of juicing. I also wanted to see as a power lifter what effects it had on my body for energy, recovery, and weight lose while increasing strength. I would like to lose about 15 pounds before raw nationals yet keep my numbers up and increasing. My wife and I plan to do a 3-5 day detox, which will help with the “bloat”. After the detox I plan to incorporate at least 2 juices a day into my nutrition plan and monitor the effects it has on me.

Let me also say this. I am not a nutritionist, I did not stay at a holiday inn last night, but I have done a decent amount of research. If this is something you are also thinking about trying, I would suggest three things. First do the research and find out what information suits you.  Second see if you can borrow a juicer from a friend or family member so you are able to try juicing before making the investment. And lastly follow my posts related to juicing. I plan to do some videos during the detox as well as follow up videos and posts related to how I am doing and how juicing has affected my training.

IA all day!

  1. This is great! I’ve been curious about this as well. Interested to see how it goes for you. Good luck Paul!

    • Going to buy some fresh items tonight and do some juicing tomorrow. I honestly think the hardest part will be to find recipes that I really like. So far I have just juiced what we had around the house and liked my orange, green apple, carrot and spinach mix. I will record the detox and post it.
