(Guest Post) Most people know the importance of nutrition, but we fail to make a life style change.

Yeah, I know it’s hard especially when we live in a society that wants everything right away and fast food joints are everywhere you look. If you are like me you have tried a number of things to eat health and loose weight.

Three things come to my mind right now like HCG drops, the lemon aid diet and the grapefruit diet. What in the world was I thinking? These schemes and products where just temporary fixes and now that I’m sitting at 258lbs I have decided I better make some life style changes soon.

These changes are not because I need to make them before it’s too late it’s never too late in my book. I just need to live a healthier life style. I can no longer take the path of least resistances. You see it’s going to take tremendous effort on your part to start and maintain a healthy life style.

Nurses are now using practices most commonly associated with nutritionists and wellness doctors, as different diets and workout regimens are helping nursing professionals reach every patient.  Online nursing schools as well as brick and mortars have begun really stressing the ease and efficiency of proper nutrition and exercise.

How do I know? Because I have be on start stop for a long time. I start a doing good for a while than I stop. I loose the weight then I gain it all back plus some. I started to ask myself am I insane? Is there some type of drug in those Pop Tarts I creep down stairs and eat often along with a glass of my son’s chocolate milk.

Things Must Change Permanently

Here’s my plan. I started implementing juicing daily on March 19th, 2013. My goal is to substitute juicing for one meal and do light exercise. I’m documenting all of this on my website like my favorite juice recipe here:

Pineapple Green Juice

1/4 large pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into cubes

6 kale leaves 2 cups spinach 1/2 cucumber

4 celery stalks1 (1-inch) piece of ginger

*Adapted from Reboot Your Life.


I also add a little shredded red cabbage also.

I hoping to get support from the web community so please visit my site and and leave a comment with you experience with juicing good or bad. I believe we can help each other life a healthier life style.
