The Juicy Body Transformation - 6 months later

It was on 4th July last year that I started The Juicy Body Transformation and began this journey to a healthier me.



To be honest I got off to a bit of a slow start. The program has heaps of recipes all of which suit me in terms of what I have learnt over the last few years about which foods work well for my body and which ones don't. So I thought I was doing that already. In my first month I did try a few of the recipes, but the biggest change was really just incorporating the whole food nutritional products that go with it into my life. Then after a few weeks of being in the support group on Facebook and seeing all the delicious meals people were preparing, posting and eating I really got into it. Now I rarely cook anything that's not in The JBT Guide

The other day I tried on a dress I'd never worn. I bought in an op shop a year or so ago and it was too small - but the price was too good to resist (50¢ I think) so I bought it anyway. You must have done that too at least once right? For when I get thinner! 

I was surprised that the dress fitted, and really pleased with myself. I asked Arthur to take a photograph of me and I was really surprised. I guess it had been a while since I'd had a photo taken of my whole self. Now I could understand why it is that everybody is telling me I look so different. I look healthier than I have in years. 


I feel healthier too. My whole body is healthier. I've had so many improvements with my health in fact, that I struggle to remember them all, but let's try:
  • I have more energy - this alone is transforming, I can do more, exercise more, play more with my 5 year old, and am more enthusiastic about everything, and so much happier
  • I think more clearly - I have heard people talk about brain fog but I didn't know I had it!
  • I've lost weight - about 6kg to date and now that I have got my health back I am making a concerted effort to do more and plan to do the 8 Week Shred Challenge which is also FREE to all JBT clients - I'd love to lose another 12kg
  • My skin is so much better and my hair and nails are growing longer and stronger
  • I am sleeping so much better - both for more time and better quality sleep
  • My pain has gone. This is a biggy. So big I dared not even tell anyone for 4 months in case I jinxed it. I have suffered from chronic and debilitating pain and restricted movement in my left arm  for almost 10 years. I even had to be sedated once when Arthur was small. I went through all kinds of treatment, physio, osteopathy, saw massage therapists and chiropractors. I saw various consultant at hospitals. Angina, MS and a brain tumour were thankfully all ruled out, but I still had the pain and the cause was still a mystery so it bothered me daily - both mentally and physically. I have not felt that pain since about a week to 10 days of starting this journey. 
  • I also had arthritic pain in my joints, which I think was separate to the pain mentioned above, and that has gone too
  • I am happier, and more positive, my mood is so much more balanced and steady, I rarely get anxious about anything
It's amazing what flooding your body with nutrients can do! I knew that what I ate was a key and my own research had led me to believe that my problems were caused by systemic inflammation, but the specialist at the hospital told me that was all a load of poppycock. I think he's wrong don't you. The photos of my face alone show the inflammation - now you see it now you don't. I'm so happy and relieved to have finally found what works for me. 

I think you'll see now why I have no reservations whatsoever about sharing this  fabulous JBT lifestyle with other people. Who knows what flooding your body with nutrients could do for you!
