In The Juice Drink Strategy, I have long been searching for the ideal protein source.
As you know, protein is extremely important in achieving an ideal diet... in your daily juice drink, you already add yogurt, perhaps milk, and of course even the fruits and vegetables add some protein, since their cell walls are so disrupted that all of the available nutrients are readily available for your body to use!
But now, I have found the perfect source of natural, completely absorbable protein!
Egg white protein powder is the perfect solution! Not only is it a perfect, healthy, absorbable form of protein with NO fat, NO sugar- NOTHING you don't want, and everything that you do!
And, this powder is very inexpensive, and even cheaper than buying whole eggs!!
(And with none of the fat!)
I use roughly two heaping tablespoons per juice drink as outlined in The Juice Drink Strategy default juice drink.
I even have resourced a great source of this wonder-food:
Rose Acre Farms- you can even order it through me, at a discount!
2 lb.- $23 Postpaid
5 lb.- $45 Postpaid (a good option- 5 lbs. lasts a long time!)
10 lb. $78.50 Postpaid
Just email me, or call, and I'll order it for you at this discounted price!

This quote is as true now as it ever was-
EAT PROPERLY, AND MOST OF YOUR ILLS WILL DISAPPEAR!!
Of course, exercise and deep breathing also figure into this equation.
The Juice Drink Strategy should be your first step!
The psychological benefits of The Juice Drink Strategy or the barbarian diet are another facet that bears further thought:
If you are receiving perfect, total nutrition...
Don't you think your mental state will benefit, ALONG WITH your physical appearance and strength??
Well, of course! It just makes sense- just as, in the above photo, I am doing a "wheeled pushup", which most 57 year old (or 27 year olds!) could not do one of which! And so, my physical self is in far better condition that average....(I routinely do 10 +).
In like manner, I'm sure my mental state is much more tranquil, than someone who eats the typical American/Western "junk food" diet. (Bread, pasta, twinkies, cheeto's, etc.)
The brain and psyche are intimately connected with the body...
which is intimately connected with the diet!
And exercise, but that is another post...
Which comes first: "the diet or the exercise?"
They are so inter-related! We need both!
Jay, just have a quick question…ok, 2 quick questions…..
1. My husband takes his lunch every day….if we shouldn’t use white bread, is the whole wheat any better?
If we drink the juice in the morning, what can he have for lunch…if I pack like fruit …he doesn’t take time for lunch, he eats as he is driving….he’s not happy about giving up his bag of fritos, but he and I are going to try this starting next week….(I am so excited) I decided to slowly change our eating habits , well in his case anyway..
2. Can I make the juice drink in the morning and keep it in the refrigerator or in my husband's case in his cooler till we drink it at lunch or is it better to make it and drink it immediately? In which case I will have to come up with something for Dave for lunch….(see question 1)
I am already doing aerobics, yoga and walking 2 miles at least 2 times a week, but will look into the isometric exercises…those may help my husband as he has arthritis in his knee and exercises aren’t helping—the damage to the muscle thing I read about in your book… yes I did read it already…as soon as I finally got home yesterday I sat on my deck (relaxed) and read it….
I'm glad you are enthusiastic! That is one-half of the battle!
1. I also eat while I am driving! I will drink my juice drink, in small 16 oz. plastic tupperware containers, as I drive. I just drink as I'm hungry... After I drink my juice drinks, I am definitely NOT hungry!
2. As for keeping the juice drinks in the cooler til lunch- that's what I do! Nothing is lost by that, although I do keep a "freezer pack" in the cooler to keep it cool!
As for other lunch ideas:
I always have a lunch bag full of almonds, and/or walnuts! It's amazing how filling these are, and how incredibly nutritious! No guilt!
Just today, I tried the "cold shish-kebab". I cut up a grilled, boneless pork chop from last Sunday, cut up onions and green peppers, and put it all in a plastic sandwich bag. ( I ate as I drove- just great!)
AND very filling!
As for exercise, there is no substitute for the transformetrics.com exercises!
The key is in controlled flexing throughout the movements. Flex to what you feel is about 80% of your hardest flex! (Your limbs should shake!)
It doesn't take long; and, for me, first thing in the morning is by far the best!
VERY safe, and VERY efffective. More can be added later, as desired...

The more things change, the more they stay the same!
Charles Atlas was a genius- fitness has taken a nose-dive since he left the scene.
These exercises are a natural complement to The Juice Drink Strategy!
Lots of folks tell me
"Jay, I'd love to try The Juice Drink Strategy to garner the weight loss and health benefits, but I just don't want to spend money to buy a Vitamix blender, darn you!"
I sympathize- It's hard to invest in something, when you don't know absolutely that your results will pay off!
Let me tell you now: they will! In a big way!! You would pay thousands of dollars if you could experience, beforehand, just how you would feel and look after following the prescriptions outlined in The Juice Drink Strategy!
But, there is a way to "preview" the advantages, without spending a cent!
Firstly, just cut out all carbohydrates from flour products: (chips, bread, snack foods, etc.)
Next, resolve to eat a Barbarian Diet:
Lean meats and seafood in unlimited amounts
Fruits and vegetables in unlimited amounts
Dairy products and eggs and nuts (excluding cashews and peanuts!) in reasonable amounts...
Actually, probably more than you currently eat! (3 or more eggs per day is not unreasonable).
Check out this excellent blogsite for great recipes:
If you follow these instructions, you will gain about 60-70% of the benefits derived from following The Juice Drink Strategy to the letter! And, that is way better than what you are probably achieving with the average Western diet...
The downsides will be only that it is far less convenient, more work, and of course the results will be somewhat less...
But still, it is a great starting place!!
Follow the Barbarian diet, without the Vitamix for a while!
The results will speak for themselves. And the results will convince you!!
Also, in postscript, I hasten to add that you should NOT neglect the exercise portion of The Juice Drink Strategy!
Go to www. transformetrics.com/exercises
These are the basic DVR, or Dynamic Visualized Resistance exercises that you should begin doing on a daily (or near-daily) basis!
There is your "free" preview of the results you will achieve when following The Juice Drink Strategy.

Many, if not most people, assume that those fit, lean folks they see participating in sports achieved that level of fitness by playing sports...
No- by developing a fit body, you gain the type of body that performs well at most any sport. But, this body is attained by (you guessed it!):
Proper diet (which is most readily achieved by following the Juice Drink Strategy!),
Proper exercise (Tranformetrics).
Once you have transformed your body utilizing this strategy, why then you certainly can use it to participate in sports activities, which may slightly elevate certain aspects of your fitness. But, in general, sports primarily are for recreation!
The above is a photo of me recreating
To recap: Exercise is hard, and repetitive, to produce results.
Sports are fun.
There is a huge difference between the two activities!
The above photo is of me "recreating" at the Chicago Board of Trade this summer, courtesy of brother JEFF!

"Once begun, half done!" as they say.
But now, you need to make it a habit- only by regular, daily usage can you gain the incredible, life-changing results you desire! It takes 28 days to ingrain a lifelong habit.
Resolve to start now!
Set up all al your equipment, tonight. Make sure your Vitamix is clean, and ready to go.
Make sure you have all of your "ingredients" in the refrigerator:
Orange juice, milk, yogurt, frozen mixed fruits, frozen mixed vegetables, frozen spinach, frozen berries...
Ideally, you will also have:
Ground flax meal, whey or egg-white protein powder, a banana and an orange all ready to peel!
In the morning, if all of this is ready, it is so easy to get into the routine of :
ADDING all of the ingredients by the fridge, then progressing over to the counter and adding in the flax meal and protein, and then peeling the orange and banana and adding them in as well...
By now, you are ready to start Vitamix-blending!
Start on low for a few seconds, and then power it to high!!
Leave the room, since it does get loud. Check your email.... turn on CNBC... then return.
The linchpin of your diet- 99% of the nutrition you need, and the built-in appetite suppressants that come free of charge are now available for you to ingest, in a fruity-tasting beverage that you will come to crave!
Now, before you drink it in, go do your Transformetrics!
Then, you can indulge in your breakfast juice drink, knowing that you have done the two most powerful things that you can do for your health and appearance in just a short time before you start your day!
