We spoke to Tomasz Bona from LiveWheatgrass who told us his incredible story of weight loss and curing his bad skin through juicing…
How did you get into juicing?
I first got into juicing when I joined the company LiveWheatgrass, so about 7 months ago.
Working for a company that deals with frozen, delivered Wheatgrass we take health and nutrition very seriously. So soon after I joined the company I did some research about our partners, one of which was Juice Master and Jason Vale.
I initially watched all of his videos on YouTube, I looked at the website and I loved the way he expressed himself and the way he helped people lose weight and be healthy.
What programme did you follow?
To start with I didn’t follow a specific programme, I started by creating my own juices and would put anything and everything into a juicer. I decided the ‘greener in colour’ the better it was for me ;-). I then later got a copy of the Funky Fresh Juice Book and started to make some of these recipes.
As we are producing organic wheatgrass, beetroot and kale (in frozen shoots) it was easy for me to get into the rhythm without remembering to buy all the produce at the market. However, in Jan I signed-up to the World’s Biggest Juice Detox to try the new 5IBs in 5 Days programme, join the juicing community and get the help and advice from Jason’s daily videos.
Would you recommend juicing to others, and what were your results?
I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!
Juicing is great if you want to feel better and really helpful if you want to lose some weight.
I’ve been suffering with skin problems for many years, plus, I couldn’t get to sleep at night which meant I was always very tired. I would run out of breath easily and the worst of it all I would snore very loudly at night.
But when I started juicing everything seemed to improve, my skin cleared up, I had more energy, I stopped snoring! And in total I have lost 95lbs in 6 months (9lbs of which I lost on the World’s Biggest Juice Detox).
I really believe juicing has changed my life for the better!
What was your favourite juice?
My favourite juice from Jason’s recipes is the Ginger Shot. I have this every morning!
The Ginger Shot!
- 1/2 Apple
- 1 inch chunk of Ginger
It’s really easy – chop an apple in half and cut off a chunk of ginger from the root to taste (Jason recommends roughly a 1 inch chunk) – place both in the juicer.
When done, place in a shot glass and down – get ready for a wake up call!
