Jane’s husband, Bruce, found Jane’s passion for eating healthy a bit odd and restrictive, but he tolerated it. After all, it didn’t bother him, except in his pocket book, but a small price to pay to keep Jane happy. Food was something to indulge in, according to Bruce.
A social drinker, Bruce lost all sense of mindfulness when he drank, which often led to gorging himself, as were many of his buddies. Unsurprisingly, most of them were consuming a daily cocktail of medications, were overweight and suffered from some ailment such as pre-diabetes and/or heart disease.
The problem was that Bruce became so reliant on the meds to keep him “healthy,” but they affected him in many untold ways, including lethargy and irritability. He became so unbearable that Jane threatened to separate if he didn’t follow a healthier lifestyle.
For one month, Bruce followed a plant rich diet, reduced his alcohol intake and drank 1 to 2 JOOS per day. He also started to wean himself off the meds. After one month, he went to the doctor and, for the first time in years, his triglyceride levels were normal. Even better, his moods were more stable, he slept better and lost 15 lbs.
This is a fairly typical story of many men who start drinking fresh organic, non pasteurized juice. One of the biggest surprises for me was that the blood sugar levels of Type 2 Diabetics stabilized, despite drinking juice with apple in it. This showed me, at least on an anecdotal level, that it’s not the non pasteurized sugars from fruit that is affecting the blood sugar levels; it’s the high acidic, processed diet that is!
