A New Start
Since this is how I start my day, with a Green Smoothie, I thought it appropriate to start my blog with this picture. My new start began July 19, 2010.
This new start is a combination of results: tired of dragging myself around from the pain of fibromyalgia and not willing to take drugs for it, my Dr.'s recommendation to read "Eat to Live" by Dr. Fuhrman, running out of my Crestor, and the discovery of Green Smoothies.
I committed to eat only fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts for a 6 week period. The results have been remarkable. After less than a week my energy level doubled and my pain level significantly was reduced. After 3 weeks, my cholesterol dropped by 113 points and I no longer need to take medication. To date, I have dropped 15 pounds!
While the goal was to feel better, the other benefits resulting from changing my dietary habits have given me back the spring in my life that I thought was gone. For six weeks is now changed to a life time. I have no desire to go back to old habits because I feel so good! It only gets better!
