“Before I started juicing, I was overweight and taking medication to treat an autoimmune disease. By drinking only fresh vegetable and fruit juices while making my film Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, I lost weight, got off the medication, and began to feel better than ever! Today, I still drink a lot of juice and eat a balanced diet centered on fruits and vegetables. But I’ve also realized that staying healthy is a lot more complex than just what you eat. I’ve distilled what I’ve learned down to 7 Keys to health and happiness. Paying attention to these 7 keys helps me thrive.”

My Thoughts:

I have gone through a “reboot” (both 3 and 5 days) before and enjoy using recipes on the rebootwithjoe.com website.  When this book became available to review through Netgally, I requested to review it and was selected.  (All opinions are my own).  I liked this book better than your typical diet book.  It’s more about the longevity of a lifestyle change and how to maintain the lifestyle and weight loss after the original “stint” with juicing and it’s weight/healthy rewards.  I felt encouraged to give it another goal and to stick it out.  It’s also not just about juicing only.  It talks about incorporating healthy foods into your routine and making your healthy lifestyle sustainable.

Recommendations:

Would I recommend this to a fellow book lover?  If she/he was interested in juicing, yes.
Would I recommend this to my teenage daughter?  Probably not
