Juicing Recipes Humble Request: Help Japan Recover

A big whopping grateful hello is in order to all my fair and gentle readers, especially considering the news of yet another tragedy still unfolding in the world. Seeing these things occur to good people makes me extremely humbled that I can sit here behind my desk and reach out to my peeps without worrying about being carted away in some giant wave.

Just as a heads up, you may or may not receive this post in your email (depending on the type of subscription you opted to receive).

I thought it would be appropriate to get in touch with you all and offer up a link to the American Red Cross page at the "causes" site, where they are currently gathering support to help the wonderful people in Japan who need help right now. The site can be accessed here, below (click the red cross picture), or by visiting http://www.causes.com/campaigns/154523. 

I strongly urge you to consider clicking through and donating what you can to the relief effort. The people of Sendai and other areas affected are only now beginning the long process of cleaning up.

Having personally experienced the terror and awesome devastation of both a 7.8 earthquake in Taipei, and the 2004 Tsunami while vacationing in Phuket, Thailand, I am a perfect candidate to testify - there isn't much in the way of natural disasters that can wreak such havoc and destruction, on such a large scale, so quickly. It truly is shocking and heartbreaking to watch unfold. In Japan there's now an added strain, in that a nuclear reactor is in jeopardy of failing, so the circumstance truly is dire and unpredictable.

The kind folks in Japan are among the nicest and most stoically graceful people on our planet. They work hard and they live, love, and laugh just like we do. Most importantly - as of today they are a severely injured populous and need assistance from the rest of the world. That means you and I.

Please take some time, visit the link, and donate what you can. If you can't afford to donate money, donate a prayer. When you're done, go and hug your family.

Juicing For Weight Loss: Proof Positive It Works!

So juicing recipes for weight loss might seem a topic that fell victim to overkill long ago, but the guy in that << movie poster has just finished proven it certainly works. See, I've been spreading that word for a long time, and as a trainer I've seen the results of a proper juicing diet. But I never bothered to make a movie about it. 

(note to self: learn how to make movies!) 

Before I get started on a long winded post here, I'll stop. I don't need any long rants here, just need to hip my loyal and faithful readers to a wonderfully inspiring gentleman from Australia, Joe, who lost over 50 kg by consuming nothing but juice for 60 days. His story is awesome and his experience the physical manifestation of words I've been preaching here at Ye Ol' Juicing Recipes blog for years. 

Joe has been dubbed a "weight loss superhero" so head over and watch the news report on Joe by heading over to MSN. (Yes, that's the link.) Alternately here's Joe's website with a trailer for the movie he made about his juicing journey. The movie is called "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead", a title that seems to mirror how many people feel anymore, according to my email inbox. 

I would love to have included that video here, but alas, MSN doesn't play as nicely as youtube for embedding video.So folks, please head over to either the MSN report, or Joe's site and check out an amazing juicing for weight loss victory. It's just bloody inspiring. 

Oh, and if you look carefully in the news report you'll notice that's a Breville Juicer Joe's using! Ha! I told y'all I knew what I was on about! ;)
