The GMO Experiment

If you've been reading me for a while, you might have read my rants on how aweful GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) are. Well this video documents what's wrong with our food (the fact that GMO's are in everything!!) very well. I won't write much because the video is pretty detailed about the negative effects and what you can do about getting them out of your diet.

If you like the video, please help them out by voting them as the "Top Transformational Video of 2012". Vote here by Feb 3rd (Sunday)!

Snack Attack

I've been feeling pretty scattered with everything lately.... and especially my eating habits. I did a juice cleanse a few weeks ago and felt pretty good afterwards. But what always happens when I'm busy is I end up eating whatever and/or eating out a lot more. And once again I'm starting to feel it... and see it... on my ass.

Ughhhh. So I've decided that I'm going to stock up on healthy snacks so I don't end up overeating or eating random junk for the foreseeable future. Yesterday I was starving and ate a GIANT veggie burrito for lunch... and then was so full I ended up taking a nap for a few hours. Last night I was a little hungry after the gym, but all I had was chocolate (it was really good dark chocolate at least) and my roommates pretzels (sorry Kelly!). I found out if you alternate eating pieces of chocolate and pretzels it tastes like chocolate covered pretzels. If you ever need to improvise... just sayin'.

So, today I'm going to the store and getting lots of healthy things I can snack on. I need to get back on track. More juicing to come too! Gotta get back to my daily juicing.

Who wants to do a juice cleanse with me???

Raw Generation's back in biz

I completely apologize for the lack of posts lately. I've been focusing pretty much all of my time for the past few weeks on re-branding Raw Generation and launching our new Skinny Cleanse.

So.... if you are in severe need of dropping a few pounds (like I was) or want to start getting some greens into your diet... check it out! I created this with someone like myself in mind: always busy, doesn't always have the time or energy to prepare juices, and wants a fast food option other than McDonald's, Subway, or Taco bell.

Every once and a while it's nice to hit the reset button. That's what this is. It floods your body with real nutrition which allows it to detox and burn fat. I hate to sound all sales-ie so I'll put it this way... STOP WISHING YOU CAN LOSE WEIGHT! All you have to do is drink juice! I tell everyone this. The more juice you drink the more weight you will lose and keep off!

Even if you don't want to do a strict cleanse, but you want a variety of juices... the Skinny Cleanse will work. It's 6 juices a day... 3 green, one citrus, one root veggie blend, and one on the lighter side with cucumber, pineapple, and aloe vera juices.

If you are already juicing at home and looking for some new recipes, we are giving our eBook away for free here... 30 Juice: Juice Your Way to a Skinnier Body

Oh and we are running a PRE-SALE from now through midnight on February 3rd. 20% OFF the Skinny Cleanse

Any questions... post them in the comments below.

7 lbs later...

The holidays are over and I've assessed the damage. I officially gained 7 lbs over the holidays, which is the first time I've gained weight in over 2 years. Needless to say, as soon as I found this out I immediately started kicking my ass. 

Coincidentally, I am in the process of launching a juice cleanse for Raw Generation. So last week I did a 3 day juice cleanse to start off. The reason I didn't write about it last week was because I wanted to see if I could actually complete it successfully before I go and blab about it. 

I spent Monday easing into it by eating a ton of fruit and not much else. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thrusday was all juice and a little bit of fruit to curb the need to chew. Friday was a few juices, homemade guacamole, and a regular dinner. **It's important to ease into and out of a juice cleanse for at least a day before and after. After the holidays were over I felt stuffed and bloated, which pretty much went away after the first day. All in all I lost 5 lbs and felt sooooo much better!

I didn't really have any negative side effects other than that on day 3 I was literally starving all day. No matter how much juice I drank or fruit I ate. I had read that this would happen on day 1 or 2. A few people asked me if I pooped everything out, and I have to admit as much as I was hoping this would happen, it really didn't. I mean the first day was a little more than normal, but other than that it was business as usual. Apparently, the detox magic starts to happen after you reach the point of feeling like you are starving but I wasn't prepared to do it any longer.... so, I'm going to do a 5 day juice cleanse next week to see what happens.
