DAVE THE RAW FOOD TRUCKER, BILL BARLOW, DAN MCDONALD Juice Recipe – Huge Weight Loss – Fresh Raw Green Juice Recipe – Cancer, Diabetes Cured

LATEST UPDATE 1/28/2012:

Re: Dave Raw Food Trucker
In 2009 and 2010, Dave the Raw Food Trucker claimed to have experienced cancer remission, relief from kidney complications and diabetes recovery using the “rainbow diet” nutritional program created by Dr. Gabriel Cousens. Dave lost almost 200 pounds and was able to temporarily return to work.

However, in 2011, Dave the Raw Food Trucker suffered a heart attack.

Now, in 2012, Dave states he has recovered from his heart attack and is once again promoting a mostly raw lifestyle.

The videos below of Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Dave’s inspiration, may help explain and illustrate the diet Dave used. Thousands of people have overcome diabetes with Dr. Cousens’ special diet and now live a medication free life.

Bill Barlow
Another benefit of Dr. Cousen’s diet is the normalization of weight. Currently, under the tutulage of Dan McDonald, commonly known on Youtube as the raw food “liferegenerator,” Bill Barlow lost 90 pounds in approximately 4 months on the green juice diet. Bill states that he eats all the fresh, raw vegetables he wants, as did Dave.

IMPORTANT NOTE
Dr. Cousens is a medical doctor, and as such, can prescribe and recommend medical treatments. If one is seeking to lose weight or regain health, it is highly recommended that you do your own research and read Dr. Cousens’ books and other fully qualified medical authors in full, and consult with a credentialed professional.)

Please note that ALL information regarding your health, and any claims made by Internet personalities MAY OR MAY NOT be verifiable. Use wisdom, reservation and discernment in your evaluation of any and all information online, and consult with a certified physician such as Dr. Gabriel Cousens or other licensed, natural, holistic medical professionals.

DAN THE MAN – DAN MCDONALD LIFEREGENERATOR
RAW GREEN JUICE RECIPE
with DAVE THE RAW FOOD TRUCKER & BILL BARLOW

~~~

Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine - By Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D.

Recipe for Green Juice – Great for Dieting and Losing Weight

This is the original green juice recipe that Dan the Man and Dave the Raw Food Trucker used back in 2009. Dan is now a popular raw food hero and strong proponent of fresh, live green juice. He believes in the natural healing and diet benefits of raw fruits and vegetables.

These ingredients are what Dan and Dave used to make 3 gallons worth of juice at once. This is an ULTRA LOW-glycemic juice that Dan and Dave credit for helping cure his body of Type II Diabetes & Stage IV Colon Cancer.

Dan, Dave and Bill are ALL about having their produce be 100% organic. Just do the best you can!

WHAT TO DO WITH THE PULP?

Diabetes has become a seemingly unstoppable national epidemic, affecting more than twenty million Americans. Conventional wisdom calls it incurable, but renowned Dr. Gabriel Cousens counters that claim with this breakthrough book. There Is a Cure for Diabetes lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being. Dr. Cousens’s method, widely tested at his famous Tree of Life centers, is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days. Both practical and inspirational, the book explains how to abandon the widespread “culture of death”–symbolized by addictive junk food–that fosters diabetes in favor of a more natural, nurturing approach. The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels; and the diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. The third week focuses on live-food preparation, featuring 100 delicious raw recipes. Dr. Cousens emphasizes regular consultations, monitoring blood chemistries, and emotional support, and includes a one-year support program to help maintain a diabetes-free life.

Here’s a list of things you can do with the pulp remains:

* Make delicious broth for soups
* Broth for cooking sprouted grains, rice, etc.
* Broth for a delightful “vegetable tea”
* Use pulp to make nutritious cookies, muffins, cakes
* Pets love simmered pulp leavings – delicious! : )
* Added to home made pet food
* Excellent Compost for your cozy bin of worms (they love it : )

~~~

Enjoy!

Notes:

Some people believe that many people no longer have all the digestive enzymes they need and cannot simply digest all the nutrients they need. People crave more food because they’re not getting what they need. Today’s food in cans, jars, bottles and boxes have lost all their enzymes.

About Juice Feasting
“After starting a juice feast, a lot of women who are post menopausal regain their periods after day 10 and 22. Raw juicing can bring your body back to where it really belongs.”

* B e n e f i t s * according to Dan the Man

— Red Chard ~ High in betacarotene

— Collard Greens ~ High in phytonutrients

— Kale ~ Has the highest known level of phytonutrients in it that are digestible by humans (over 2x the level of spinach!)

— Beets ~ Beet green leaves have 2,000x the level of Vitamin K in them than the actual beets, so that’s why its worth it to Dave to buy them just for their greens!

— Bell Peppers ~ Great for flavor

— Celery & Cucumber ~ Function well as a hydrating juice base

— Tomatoes ~ Dave likes them because of the lycopene and chooses not to believe what they say about having to cook tomatoes in order to get more lycopene, for if you’re cooking tomatoes, you’re destroying the very enzymes that your body needs to digest the lycopene! What good is ingesting more lycopene if you can’t adequately digest, assimilate & utilize it?

— Aloe Leaf ~ Incredible for the cardiovascular system!

EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY Through the UNIVERSE

A visually stunning trip through the known universe by the American Museum of Natural History. You never knew how small the Earth is, how beautiful, how singular and alone.
 

Another visual stunning trip through the Universe is the introductory scene from the movie, “Contact” with Jody Foster and Matthew McConaughey. A Must Buy movie, by the way…

From Youtube:

“The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.”

Having a BABY? Best Baby Advice from Grandma…

That is SOOOO exciting! Sooo happy for you!!! 😀

Some advice and thoughts from a dear, wise Grandma person I love very much:

1. Enjoy EVERY moment with baby. A moment is here for a blink, then gone FOREVER, never to come back. You’ll never be able to go back and recapture lost time. Use every precious second of it.

2. Every moment away from baby is time away from heaven.

3. Eat only the purest natural organic foods while pregnant (and after! : ) so that baby might have fewer allergies and colic. A happy contented baby is easier than a crying colicky baby.

4. Use a natural baby carrier that holds baby close to Mom or Dad. That’s where baby belongs – right next to the heart of a loved one. One day, when baby is grown, he or she will walk out the door, and you’ll have wished you held them more. Much much more.

5. Let potty training happen in it’s time. Just remember – they won’t be wearing diapers to college. 😀

6. Let your “No” be “No.” Ever gentle, ever firm and resolute. You won’t ever have to struggle once baby knows and respects your “Word.”

When Baby is ready for discipline… (when baby has learned to walk : )…

Time to teach “No.” Baby will resist. Tell baby “no” once again, looking kindly but firm. When baby doesn’t listen, tell baby, “timeout” so baby knows the word for takeaway, and then take baby to crib or playpen, AWAY from the rest of the family for just a few minutes. Baby will learn that No means no, and that if they don’t listen, they will be isolated. Short isolation is painless, but uncomfortable for baby. Baby ALWAYS wants to be near those whom they love. : )

Baby will need several lessons ever so often to be reminded that you mean what you say. Sometimes, baby will test you and try to do wrong over and over, perhaps many times. Just isolate baby as many times as needed, lengthening the time for a bit for periods up to 5 minutes. (An eternity for baby)

Keep doing this even if baby thinks this is a game. Remember – it won’t take more than 20 times! If you do this, baby will give up after a while (it’s not a fun game after all) and then, like a wonderful miracle, baby will respect your Word even after just ONE “NO.”

It’s the kindest, best trick for babies – and good for Pets, in fact all animals, too! 😀

No matter how tired you are, teaching baby to respect “No” will make your life INFINITELY easier as the years go by. It lasts beyond the teen years.

Infinite Patience and Love…. and Word respected.

7. First time Brothers and Sisters…
Tell brothers and sisters that THEY are going to have THEIR brother or sister. It’s… theirs! Tell them how much baby will love them like no other, and how wonderful it’s going to be to have someone who loves them so much. It will be their, playmate, their new family member who will love them forever if they’re kind and good to them.

8. Feed baby (and whole family!) as much organic food as possible. The less pesticides, herbicides and chemicals, the better! And more tasty, too : ) There’s so much contamination these days. The purer, healthier the food, the better! No processed food. 😀 Buy from local farmers. Encourage local farmers! Support them. Those who don’t use chemicals work SO much harder. Be sure to buy humane, organic meat, too if you can! 😀

9. The best way to teach baby (now older!) to not crave treats and candy, is to use a little trick. When they want candy, say Reese’s Peanut butter cups, buy 12! After dinner, let them eat as many as they want. After a few times of this with different candies, their bodies will NOT want it so much. After getting a bit sick after a bit too much candy, the deliciousness wears off. Of course, always talk to your doctor about this and everything you do – this advice is just smart grandma stuff , not medical stuff. 😀

10. One of the best things to teach baby ( all children, actually : ) is that the greatest gift of all, is the gift of being ABLE to GIVE, and then giving. Receiving is WONDERFUL – but giving regularly, doing wonderful things for others, is even better in the long run. Why? Because people, living creatures, are designed to give.

They are happiest when they do! Loving, giving, sharing, laughing together with friends and family – nothing could be better than that! 😀

PS: And from me and Cdin – teach children how to be infinitely kind to ALL animals. Animals DO feel. Even older lobsters lead younger lobsters around by the claw to guide them. Even lobsters have feelings. 😀

So much here – so sorry for overdoing! But had to share because I think Grandma has some good thinking, i think 😀

Much love!
