A Hybrid Juice Diet, 2 Kilos Lost, and A Psychoanalytic Kindle Book!

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

I had a third thing to celebrate other than Mother’s Day and my weight loss — at last my Kindle Book ‘Photography and Psychoanalysis’ is published on Kindle. Unfortunately, I cocked up the formatting of the description and although that’s now corrected the changes haven’t yet worked their way through Amazon’s system, so there are some faults on the sales page . . . but I’m sure it will come right in the end. Be sure to check the promotional video I put together to publicise the book!

Juicing: A Hybrid Diet?

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

But some people might never attempt a period of pure juicing, but simply replace one of their meals, or supplement their diet with pure juice. There’s nothing wrong with this approach, but it occurs to me that although it seems easier, it may not be as straightforward as following a time of pure juicing.

Why do I think this so? It’s really quite simple. When you go on a pure juice diet all that sustains you is pure juice, but this means that in one act of will you eschew tea, coffee, alcohol, meat, fish, eggs, pasta, bread, milk, cheese . . . shall I continue?

40 Day Juice Fast, An Evaluation

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Starting with the bad, the first weeks are when you are likely to suffer the most aches and pains. I had yet to lose sufficient weight to really enjoy exercising until two weeks had passed. Even after two weeks occasional stomach aches and wobbles may be felt. I recall after around three weeks doing an enormous poo and my lower abdomen felt bruised and ached all morning after that.

On the other hand, as time passed my energy and mental acuity increased. I spend less time on the computer, and more time in the garden. I rarely watch DVDs before going to bed, and sleep earlier. I wake early, at around six, when I do some of my best writing, or work in Photoshop, then as it gets light go out for an hour’s gardening.
