Reboot: 60 Days
How did you learn about Reboot with Joe?
My older brother started a 14 day Reboot and that’s where it sparked an interest in me. Watching FSND helped out a lot and motivated me even more!
What inspired you to do a Reboot?
I received the Breville 800JEXL as a gift on my birthday July 2012 from my older brother which it unfortunately sat in my kitchen for about 8 months. My son was then born in Dec. 2012 and after realizing I would be no role model to him by living an unhealthy lifestyle, I took on the challenge to Reboot and start my 60 day Reboot on 3/25/13.
How did the experience go for you?
Because the love and support of my fiancé Nereida (she would prepare my juice most of the time) my experience went GREAT. The most difficult time for me was between days 10-14 my temptations were at their HIGHEST. I never experienced nausea, dizziness or fatigue. I must say disowning my friends (drinking/eating buddies) for 60 days helped me stay focused haha.
How much weight did you lose?
48 lbs…my goal is to be 185 lbs by August.
Did you have any notable health or physical improvements?
I no longer have to rely on caffeine 2xday to get me going in the mornings anymore and my daily headaches are gone and I can tie my shoes with ease!
What was the toughest part about the Reboot experience?
Being around family gatherings (BBQ’s) and seeing my fiancés leftovers in the refrigerator.
What habits have you maintained and kept a part of your everyday life?
I continue to juice every morning and have light lunches and dinners. I’ve started my own vegetable growing on my small patio and bike to work 9 miles each way.
What is your lasting impression of the Reboot experience?
The weight I have lost and the inspiration I have had on others to begin juicing ever since I posted before and after pictures on social media networks. Since completing my 60 days I have inspired family/friends/co-workers to buy Breville juicers and start Rebooting!
