Diet got if figured out right?

So, today I was thinking about the Juice Diet, then read the comments by Anita, Hmmmm

Thoughts led me this way and that way then to the store for prices, more hmmm then hmmmpf..

Juicer, Vegan? Paleo? Raw, Lacto Vegan? What’s the best way of eating?

The cost the waste of the pulp and peals, then searching for a Juicer Machine!
Came across some info then searched for more info on types of juicers, vs Magic Bullet vs Hamilton Beach, vs Ninja Food Prep, looked into Kijiji.ca for new and or used machines!

How about adding in there SHFT diets from Canadian Pepper’s forum, damn damn damn… How about adding in Natural Wild Edibles (ok, that was easiest thought actually) need to learn which do which and similar and complimentary tastes, then no worries, beyond identification, location, picking and harvesting. so

Bam..  … So friggin confuzled!

So, mostly Smoothies I have decided, it is so similar to the Juice Diet with all the benefits of the pulps and seeds, that will be mostly my way I think. Both WalMart and Canadian Tire are selling the Ninja Food Preps for $40 this week. The reviews and comments as well as Consumer reports rates the Ninja way above the Bullet for this type of thing. The Hamilton Beach Single serve although cheap at $15 just can not stand up to the torture juicing and smoothies put it through. It has its place with less hard items and the price is great, but for the little bit more, I think it is the Ninja for me.

Now the Ninja comes in two varieties for the ones I am looking at them online;

Ninja Frozen Treat and Drink Maker ->

Ninja Master Prep Food Processor – v

 

 

the Frozen Ninja = 400 watts

The Prep Ninja
= 450 watts and more bases

hhmm what to do, really I do not need a food processor  though I think it looks a bit sturdier than the Frozen Treat version.  Will go and check it out in person then make up my mind. PS.. kijiji.ca almost all of the Bullets where priced as high as buying new, though there were a few cheaper ones. Juicers same thing though better savings there, but do I really want to waste all that yummy goodness? NO..

So, smoothies and thicker juices for me, it is all per the person and per the body really.

The cost of the food, so I will have to do what I hate and go shopping, more than one store! Yukkers.. Almost perfect has some good deals on larger frozen fruits and veggies, good deal there, Price Chopper is cheaper than Food Basics so shop there, they are all cheaper than Sobies! WalMart will need to look at prices there as well, make a list, check it twice gonna find out who is Naughty and who is Cheaper, O so NICE!

or. Ovo-lacto vegetarianism it is all so confusing..

plus a host of other sites today including recipes, Yummy Mommy (love that title), Paleo Diet plus about 40 reviews of the different systems, juicers, blenders, bullets, and on and on and on… my head is mush, kinda like my diet will be by the end of the week, he he..

Inspirational Documentary

I just watched a truly inspirational documentary entitled;
Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, found ithttp://www.filmsforaction.org/watch/fat_sick_and_nearly_dead_2010/

inspirational documentary

Juice machine and travel around helping people, then he met another with the same condition, that fellow learned and did the same diet reboot. Second fellow lost 200+ pounds by juicing and exercise, watch the transformation and inspirational documentary. It is not cheezy or in your face, laid back documentation of their journeys and the people they help along the way.
My great big smile for the day!

Here are the links to the websites;

Synopsis;

An Australian fellow who was overweight and had a weird and rare condition thought long and hard about his life and health, the Documentary is his journey. This documentary takes place in Australia and the United States where he travels around chatting with people and trying to help them in their food addictions. Now this sounds in your face but this fellow is easy to like and easy to chat with as well as his genuine sincerity to help others. Half way through his journey across the U.S. he meets another fellow like he used to be, overweight and with the same rare illness.

Your going to smile, you’re going to be sad, you’re going to laugh as well as shed a tear or two, or your just not human at all. This documentary about this part of his life draws you in and you think your there with him it is very intimate and soulful.

Joe the originator of the film is inspirational and Phil the ex-truck driver is amazingly inspirational, your heart melts with his weight loss journey. Watch this little hour-long film and dare to change your life!

Since I have decided to become mostly Vegetarian  this was very opportune for my knowledge base of veggie foods. Now since I have been off sick for the last 4 months with this weird Lung Infection, I need to lose even more weight, I was doing great up to D-day sickness time. The film just makes sense  so much sense that I will be starting this diet as well, they call it a ReBoot. Well reboot me baby here I come. North American Doctors can not find out what is wrong with me, they can not fix me and they can not even help very much, so I am helping MYSELF!

More to follow on my Journey and I believe that updating my blog with my journey will help me more than it help anyone who reads it, but just maybe, someone else out there will find the info useful and the Documentary will change their life!

 

I dedicate this post to the Documentary and helping one person change their life, mine. Everyone else and everything else is a bonus and good luck on your journey as well!

My belief before was that Permaculture and Aquaculture could change the course of the world for the better, this documentary only re-enforces my thoughts and beliefs.

Cheers for now
