Juicing For Weight Loss In Her Own Words

I am in my forties, a mom of two – a seven and eleven year old boy and girl. For more than ten years now, I have been brain washed into thinking that after the age of thirty and after having a baby, and worse yet two or more babies, (especially by c-sections like I had) I have to be contented with a fat bulging belly – because this will never go away. I made up my mind to love myself the way I was: This is the acceptable look of a mother in her forties. Wrong!!

I became convinced one morning as I listened to the infomercial, advertising Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro Juicer and all the health benefits of juicing, that I DID NOT have to settle for a body size and look that I DID NOT like! I got out of bed, picked up the phone and made the call, I ordered the juicer. I am happy I did.

I did the three day cleanse/detox as outlined in the book Live Foods Live Bodies. By day three, as promised, my body felt great and alive in a different way; I felt new. I had a colon cleanse that made me feel relieved on the inside: My tummy felt “cleaned out”; it was like emptying a garbage bin – and then the bin is so fresh and clean you just don’t want to put back any trash in it! I cross my heart to this, this is exactly how my inside felt!

The new feeling was so vitalizing I could not stop at the three days cleanse: I continued consuming only juices for a week. OMG!! I lost a whopping twelve pounds, mostly from my gut! I gradually went back to eating regular, but healthy foods as advised by Jay, while I continue juicing everyday.

My face and skin looked younger in less than two weeks! I now have a flat belly. I feel and look so much younger; I feel like I’ve put down an uncomfortable baggage. I have to be buying smaller blouses and jeans, but all that money could never buy the compliments and health I’ve gained from juicing. I now look and feel greater than I have ever been for the past ten years.

Every aspect of my being feels better …emotions, mental alertness… no common colds, no ailment… juicing for me has come as an on-going medicine. I’ll advice the world: CATCH ON TO JUICING! It’s like going back to Eden.

How to Lose Weight in 3 Days with Juicing….and lots of food!

Losing weight, especially when we are over the age of 45 seems impossible.  The truth is, as we age, our metabolism naturally slows, our passion for exercising and enthusiasm just seems a bit skewed.  It’s just natural, as we age, things change for us as our priorities take on different hues.

However, that does not mean we should allow ourselves to stay out of shape, carrying around those extra 20 or 30 pounds.  It’s dangerous on all levels.  So, instead of starving ourselves, and going to the gym with all those young kids, try adopting a 3 day SuperJuicing Diet…and once you finish this diet, you will be raring to workout, even if it’s just on your own recumbent bicycle or taking a long hour walk daily.

If you have a 3 day weekend coming up, or if you are retired, take three days to focus on juicing and within the first 24 hours you may notice something quite surprising!  After the initial taste adjustments, and the few headaches you may encounter as you give up the coffee, alcohol and sugar…… you will notice a naturally balanced surge or energy and your skin will start to glow.

Here’s our 3 day Super-Cleansing Diet ~ Good Luck and don’t hesitate to write to us!

Our Seven Day 100% Living Foods and Juice Diet with Super-Salads
(designed for two people)
Linda and I are sharing some sample recipes from our book: Live Foods/Live Bodies, a 100% vegan and 75% Living Cookbook that we published and is part of our Living Health Program on our website: www.jaykordich.com.
These recipes are foods we use every day, and is basically the way we live and eat on a daily basis. It’s very important to start your day off with green juices.  Also, we like to use the same ingredients for our evening juice as we use for our super-salads, as it makes it easier to prepare meals and also we drink our juice with our dinner to help with digestion as these juices are rich in enzymes to help better our digestive processes.
We also use Super-salads as our evening meals, and since we are not completely raw, sometimes we will use some spinach tortillas, or organic corn homemade tortillas to use in our salads while we are eating, in case we feel like something a bit heavier, but in the spring/summertime we usually don’t add cooked foods into our salads, but in the fall/wintertime we add cooked grains into them and/or tortillas/or flax crackers to balance off all tastes and textures.
We hope you like them!

Freshly Made Vegetable Juices!

Take our “One Week” Challenge to Juice!

Jay and I will share a bit of information with you about juicing and juicer challenges.

Basically, a juicer ‘can’ make a heck of a mess and become highly challenging for people who don’t really ‘use’ their kitchen daily.  Basically it comes down to setting our priorities to either a commitment to adding more liquid greens and juices into our bodies or not. We must dig deep down into ourselves and take control of whether we are willing to do this or not. We already KNOW what it feels like ‘not’ to juice and eat well, right?

Why not take a challenge to see what you would feel like if you were to eat and consume more living foods and juices?
It’s a week’s commitment…that’s all it takes to decide whether or not it’s worth it, and we know you can do it, at least for a week!

Here’s How:

Our recommendation is always organize first! I know…I know…..it really feels irritating, but it’s the ONLY real way we are going to establish a long term and successful juicing habit. It shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to do this, if you can create the ‘will’ to just DO it. Here’s a few techniques we do to help the process:

Ask your kids or your husband to help. If they say no, then when you come home with all that beautiful summer produce, and start to juice……juice for yourself and they will get the message really quickly! We have learned, after raising two children (who are now 26 and 24), that if they want juice, they need to participate in the entire experience…..and it’s good for them to learn these skills, and that goes for husbands, lovers or partners too!

How do we start?

Put some beautiful music on that you like, get comfortable in some sweats or something and dig down into the bowels of your refrigerator and clean it out. We usually do this on a Saturday or Sunday morning because this is the day we don’t go to work, and our biggest farmer’s markets are on Saturday.

It’s absolutely magical what happens next……

When we put the energy and effort into deep cleaning our refrigerator and our counter-tops and get our floors cleaned and pantry in good shape,….then now we have the room for a NEW LIFE.

It’s not just the physical ‘room’ ~ it’s the ‘mental and spiritual and emotional’ room you are creating now to bring in this new ENERGY and VITALITY and LOVE for yourself and your family that we are creating.

Once your kitchen is cleaned, take your children or husband with you, go to your local farmer’s market or place where you trust to get good, organic and/or pesticide free greens and veggies.

Now what?

Do you live in an area that supports local farmers? (If not, then find out online where you can go, even if it’s a thirty minute drive out……it will be relaxing and entertaining to you and your kids and/or husbands, wives or partners.) Heck, why not even bring a friend to come with you?

Jay and I live in the most beautiful area of Washington where there are real farmer’s markets twice a week, and there is a place just a few miles from us called Joe’s Garden, and they have five acres of land and sell non-sprayed veggies, flowers, fruits, seeds, nuts…..everything! We take our bikes with big backpacks and stock up once a week for lighter produce……because we can’t be hauling 50 pounds of carrots on the back of our bikes, right? (that’s a funny visual….although I have done it before with about 20 pounds and I was soooo sore the next day.)

Ok….then What?

Come home, put some good music on, open the windows and get prepared NOW to organize, wash and store your newly found wonder foods! (We write at length about this in our book, Live Foods/Live Bodies, in our Chapter entitled Our Living Kitchen).

Wash and soak them all in a good solution, clean them, store them in either zip lock bags (after you spin dry the greens) and set them in your refrigerator. Cut the ends of your carrots to ensure the bottoms are not dirty or full of fungus.

Now your carrots are cleaned, your greens are washed and you are prepared for the next week’s worth of juicing!

Then what?

If you make this effort alone, just to juice……and juice 1.5 to 2 quarts of juice for yourself daily, you will notice a huge huge difference in your energy levels, your skin and your overall wellness. There’s so much more to it……but for now, this is a good start!

Our next note will be about how to wash, store, clean and juice summertime fruits and berries and exotic greens.

Love to you all!

Jay and Linda Kordich
