One of my favorite type of movies to watch are documentaries.  Currently I’m really into food/health related documentaries. FORK OVER KNIVES  people!  A must-see.  I think Seth, my fiance, just had a eye-opening experience:  animal products are making us unhealthy?!and Plant-based is where we all should be?  Um- yeah. I think most people know that.  I’m not sure if I agree wholly on the VEGAN diet.  I feel its a little extreme and almost vegetarian / glutin-free diet is where I want to be.  By the way, I also have friends that are hardcore into raw foods- yeah I don’t think I can ever get there either.

I think it has to to with the fact that I’m changing my life to follow the Dr. D’Adamo’s Blood Type Diet: EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR TYPE  AND ask Seth as my witness, I’m lovin’ the feeling I have from NOT eating red meat and most poultry.  I’m only having Turkey as my “meat” currently, but I have to say, I  do miss bacon- luckily there’s turkey bacon!

My blood type is the rare, but universal receiver (yii-aay me!) – AB.  The “modern” blood type AB that  sensitive digestive tract and should avoid chicken, beef, and pork but enjoy seafood, tofu, dairy, and most produce.  ABs benefit from calming exercises like Yoga.  I’ll be getting into that later on this year.

BUT THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING THIS BLOOD TYPE HAS TO BE:  JESUS.  We share the same type.  Yeah, I know, I’m just as amazing.

I am, however, not taking any supplements recommended by the site.  I am taking Metagenics’ Muli-Vitamin, Omega Complex, CoQ10, and Vitamin D (which everyone here in Chicago should be taking!) care of  Park Ave Wellness.  Thanks Dr. Brian.

BUT tomorrow is a big day.  I got my juicer, finally! care of an AMAZING deal via Groupon and I’m going produce shopping for my juicing detox. SIDE NOTE:  I also watched FAT, SICK AND NEARLY DEAD (available on Netflix instant watch and sites like HULU for instance watching pleasure.)  The film chronicles Aussie, Joe Cross, in his  personal mission to regain his health.  Watch the trailer below.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not that extreme.  I’m not planning on doing a 60-day, juice-only diet because I’m not leaving my position at work or keeping my juicer in the trunk of my car so I can consume my fresh juice within minutes.  After taking the REBOOT assesment (http://jointhereboot.com/reboot-program/needs-assessment/) I’ve decided on trying the 15-day Reboot Entry Program.  I’ll keep you updated on how it goes.
