Update/Results from 10 day Juice Fast

If you're not following me on instagram (BesosFeron) you're missing out on up to the minute updates on my juice fast and weight loss journey! I initially wanted to fast for 30 days and then see if I could continue on for 60 but, I experienced horrible break outs!! They first began on one side of my face then began to spread all over it. Next my neck, my chest, shoulders and stomach started to break out in huge redish pink bumps that remind you of the chicken pox. My only conclusion was my body was experiencing a negative reaction to the juice fast so I broke the fast by eating an apple!

Reboot Juicing Challenge

This Monday, November 12 I will begin my Reboot! Now, I'm sure you are wondering what a "Reboot" is so I am happy to give you all the details and share what I've discovered.

A Reboot a juice cleansing/fast, or detox where you only drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice (and water) that you make yourself with a juicer or some sort of juice extractor. A Reboot can last anywhere from 5 days, 10 days, or longer. As seen in the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, Joe Cross did a Reboot for 60 days and lost over 80 pounds. There are various Reboot plans and you can follow that incorporate all juice, meal replacement with a juice, or any combination of juice and food. Check out the plans at the following link:

Balding? Hair Loss? Stubborn hair that won't grow?

Over the past 2 months, I have been applying my hair research to trying to "reverse" balding or hair loss for my father. He is 65 years young and has had a bald spot in the back of his head for as long as I can remember. I noticed it was becoming worse so I wanted to see if I could grow back his hair! The picture on the left was taken about 2 months ago, maybe more and the one on the right was taken this Saturday, November 3. The key to his progress was one part products, and two parts consistency. Here's what we did to achieve these great results and I'm sure they will work for you as well!

The Great Ingredient Debate

Have you ever looked on the side of a Shea Moisture bottle and read the long list of ingredients that it does not contain? Have you ever wondered why? And what is the deal with these items?

Naturalistas can agree on one thing and that is to listen to your hair! If you hair likes it, go with it. But what if the ingredients in the long run are causing harm to you or have the potential to cause you harm? This is what concerns me with all of the man-made chemicals. I would also like to state I am in no way trying to push my new 'as close to natural as possible' life style on you but rather I would like to inform you. Knowledge is power and until I began my research, I was in the dark. My future product reviews will be very different from here on out showing you natural, and healthier alternatives. All sites will be posted so you can view the full article for yourself. First, the ingredients that can be harmful to your health are Parabens, Phthalates, and Propylene Glycol.
