I really should never let old friends meet my wife. When I do crap like this happens. When Coop and I ended our Fat Boy Summer Road Trip a couple of weeks ago it gave my lovely wife a chance to get to know him. That led to him talking about healthy living, the polar opposite of the Fat Boy lifestyle. He encouraged her to watch a documentary made by a man named Joe Cross entitled "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead".
In the movie he details his incredible weight loss achieved by going on a juice only diet. The success of the film caused him to write a book of recipes, sign a deal with a juicer manufacturing company, and exploit his success. Suddenly my darling wife wants me to order her a juicer, and a new series for Fat Boy Heaven is born.
Over the next week I will compare two popular juice based cleansing diets, the "Reboot with Joe" made famous by Joe Cross, and The BluePrint Juice Cleanse, a very popular brand of pre-made cold pressed juices that sell for a huge amount ($7-11/each) and whose recipes have been widely copied and published via the web as a result.
Each plan is a three day cleanse, and we will compare taste, variety, cost of ingredients, and weight loss/health changes to determine which plan works out best for me and proves most time and cost effective.
First up starting tomorrow will be a DIY version of the BluePrint Renovation Cleanse, their most varied and flavorful package intended for those of us new to Juicing.
