Actually they taste really good if purchasing quality fruits/veggies and you got too follow recipes. Which veggies you use together make a difference.

Also purchase a quality juicer. Ours has an auger and slowly crushes the juices out.

Others have a spinning disc. You lose some nutrients that way due too heat. Also they don’t keep as long as the juices made by an augered machine. It’s time consuming and messy but it’s really goodView attachment 84936View attachment 84937
Mike any recipes you can share? What’s name and model juicer you use? I need to eat veggies as I never have all my life.

Glad it worked out so far Todd. Pretty sad they kept you in suspense so long. Dr’s are so busy and drug driven they lose track time and urgency. Hope you can get on a good diet and workout regime. We all would miss you but your family needs you Todd. They deserve the best you. Good luck.

I recently bought an augured juicer. How long does the juice keep? How many glasses of juice do you drink a day on average? I'm totally clueless to all this stuff. But my cholesterol came up high so I figured I'd go this route rather then medication.

The heart is a finicky little machine at best. It has to pump close to 2,000 gallons per day nonstop, and all four chambers have to be working - and communicating - at the right time or else things go south. A few "hiccups" in the system can be dealt with, but even the most minor problem can become life-threatening if we ignore it.

Three years ago, I went down face-first on a Wal-Mart floor not once, but twice in about two minutes. When the EMTs finally woke me up, I was confused, embarrassed, and just wanted to buy my groceries and go home so I could take a nap. They took me by force in an ambulance with tubes and electrodes everywhere, and it wasn't until about four hours later that I was informed I'd had a heart attack due to a branch bundle block (essentially an electrical problem where one chamber doesn't send signal to the next).

There was no pain, no shortness of breath, none of the "classic" symptoms. Just a slightly queasy, nauseated feeling, and suddenly *poof* I was out like a light. I had no idea I'd had a heart attack. My cholesterol and BP have always been low, so there was never any sign of danger.

Scary thing is, a BBB cannot be predicted. It cannot be treated, except with a pacemaker. So there was no 'danger' sign to look out for.

Every day, we take the internal workings of our bodies for granted. We assume that our hearts will beat, our lungs will breathe, our inner ears will keep us upright, and our brains will direct traffic. And at any given moment, something can go wrong.

I too have a branch block, once my heart decided to beat backwards and stopped. Scary stuff. Glad your ok Mama.
Crazy I moved to a place with clean air, workhard everyday and no longer take any heart meds. I’m blessed. Change was needed and I did it. As many know here on TMF I’m hard headed! But I do what it takes without excuses.

It’s been a crazy couple months for me here.

About 2 months ago I had to go to the doctor for an infection I had and while there I mentioned I’ve been having a bit of a hard time breathing lately. The doctor asked some questions and then asked me if I could come in for an EKG the next morning.

So, next morning I go in for the EKG and as soon as the test is over the doctor comes in and says you are having a heart attack at this very moment and you need to get over to the hospital. I left there and drove over to the hospital where they did some tests on me and then sent me home.

Supposedly the test results were going to be sent to my doctor within hours. As it’s getting close to 5:00 I called the doctor and they said no results yet.

The next day went by and I called again, no results yet.

Finally 2 days later the doctors office calls while I’m in the middle of a job and said the doctor wants to see you at 7:00 am tomorrow. I asked what was going on and the nurse mumbled something about congestive heart failure.

So here I am all stressed. I look up congestive heart failure in the internet and basically find that once diagnosed with it that the life expectancy is quite short. I had a wonderful night of stress.

I go in to the doctor the next morning and they check my blood pressure and it was 185/130. I’ve never had high blood pressure, I’m always right around 120/80. Anyway, the doctor said “good news, the tests show you have not had a heart attack”. I didn’t think I had.

I then asked about congestive heart failure and he said I didn’t have that either. He did say the tests showed I had blood clots in my body again. He sent me for several other tests including a CT scan of my lungs and an ultrasound of my heart.

I finally saw the doctor again today, pretty much all good news. My heart is just fine and working exactly as it should, no clogged arteries, and all is well there. I do have blood clots in both of my lungs which explains some of the difficulty with my breathing.

We talked a bit more and basically came to the conclusion I’m an old fat man that’s out of shape. Not quite how he said it but it’s basically what’s going on. As I’ve had employees doing more of the work and me doing less I’ve basically become more unfit than I’ve been in the past.

So, the plan is now to lose weight and get in shape. (Isn’t that almost everyone’s New Years resolution). I have to do it now. The doctor has given me the green light to exercise and do what ever it takes to get into shape. (He had told me 2 months ago no exercise and take it as easy as possible)

Let me just say what a relief it is knowing things are ok. It was enough of a scare that I know I have to lose the weight this time or next time I won’t be so lucky.
WOW TODD, IM AM SO GLAD TO HEAR THEY FIGURED OUT WHAT'S GOING ON. I CANT EVEN IMAGEN HOW YOU FELT THINKING THE WORST. HOPE YOU ARE FEELING BETTER. BEST WISHES.

We were drinking 3 - 16oz jars a day. Glass mason jars are the best imo.

I’ll get some of our recipes together been crazy busy. Booked solid for 8wks and can’t get everything done as it is.

I tried a juice fast but was only able too go a few days just wasn’t enough calories for me.

Just be close too the facilities first day lol.

Thanks for getting back to me. Glad to hear your busy. So you're saying it's a good idea to drink three 16 oz glasses a day?

we did. figured it was better than cheeseburgers n fries lol. obviously fruit has sugar so that aspect you should limit based on your needs.

you loose the benefits of fiber but it gives your digestive system a rest and you get those nutrients quickly.

in my case i cant have that much fiber and so juices really benefit us. got luky with jacked genetics back three generations had some serious gastro issues

Yeah essentially by juicing it allows the nutrients in the fruit/veggies to be absorbed much more quickly by the body.

I'd say if you've never done it before start with ONE glass a day 16 oz. Once you handle that easily, go up to two.

It will cleanse your system regardless, you'll take bigger shits than you ever did before.

Usually mixing fruits and veggies makes it more palatable until you can build up to veggie only.

Not to hijack the thread, but I've gone to alot of juicing too. I hate most veggies. But my wife can mix in carrots and spinach and kale in fruit juices in a way that I can hardly even taste. Juicing is alot of work, but it does help get the vitamins you need.
