Juicing for Weight LossHi, and welcome to my blog.  My name is Abe Buwalda and I wanted to create this blog site for myself to document my progress as well as to offer encouragement and support to others who may follow and join my journey.

I should note straight from the beginning that my information comes from the well known documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead by Joe Cross. You can watch a trailer of it here. He has a great website here should any of you want to use their support forums, recipes and store.  The name of my blog page is not meant to plagiarize his content at all, but to suggest I am following his program.

Today is May 1, 2016, the first day of my reboot. Last nite I set up my juicer, had all my veggies and fruit prepared to minimize any failure on my part. At my weigh-in this morning I was 303 lbs. (137 kg.).

My reason for this juicing is not only for weight loss.  I have several conditions and am taking the following medication:

Type II Diabetes (For at least 10 years) Metformin – 2,000 mg daily
Gliclicide – 160 mg daily
 High Blood Pressure Quinapril – 10 mg daily
Hydrochlorothiazide – 12.5 mg daily
 GERD (Acid Reflux) Rabeprazole – 20 mg daily
Vitamins & Others Vitamin B12 – 1,000 mcg daily
Vitamin C – 250 mg daily
Vitamin D – 1,000 iu daily
Magnesium – 250 mg daily

I plan to do this fast for 60 days, much the same as Joe and Phil in the above documentary.  I will be posting daily updates, so please feel free to follow the posts on the right side of this page.
