If one more freaking person tells me that juicing will prevent my terminal cancer from returning, I will strangle them. Or, at the very least, I will de-friend them on Facebook. Believe me, I know all about juicing – I lived in Los Angeles for twelve years! And it’s not like I’m sitting around all day eating Doritos and drinking Orange Crush! I eat a balanced diet, but I also include one daily treat – like a couple of cookies or a bowl of ice cream. I inherited my sweet tooth from my paternal Grandmother who used to hide chocolate bars all over her house! If anything, I am more aware than others about the importance of diet because I have an ileostomy. With ileostomies, and mine is a “high-output” one, food (or juice!) goes right through you. So I am very aware of getting enough calories and nutrients to keep my immune system strong. I have managed to get myself back up to 115 pounds – from a low of 90 pounds! – so I clearly know what I’m doing. I understand that people just want to help and that often they don’t know what to say and I truly appreciate everyone’s concern. But please, enough with the Juicing.
