|As I write . . . How's that for IRL?|
About a month ago, I plopped down in front of the TV and pulled up "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" a cheerful sounding documentary about how two guys with way more problems than me decided not to eat any solid food for 60 days. I came away feeling overly inspired and ready to never eat anything again. Five minutes later - reality set in. I have a Real Life. (Hence the name of the blog.) I have a bunch of kids. I have a job that requires me to travel a lot. I love to eat - both socially and for the pure enjoyment of food.
So how is this going to work? How can I - a 38 year-old, father of many, "world" traveler, lover of food deal with taking all my meals through a straw? How long will I make it? What will be the results? Will I lose weight before I lose my mind? Will I cave at the first sight of a plate of Carne Adovada with Chile Verde? Will it be like every other diet, trick, or fad I've tried?
This blog may last a day, a week or . . .
In other words, can a person like me - namely me - Juice In Real Life?
