When you got lemons, make lemonade
After 5 days of Juice FEASTING, I am on my second day of Juice FASTING. These healing tonics are making a statement--I feel good.

Rocket Surgery

I first came to know about drinking fresh raw vegetable and fruit juices, on late-night infomercials. The Father of Juicing and NY Times Best Selling Author  Jay Kordish was and still is on  mission is to teach and inspire healthy living by consuming fresh juices daily. 




Eating LIke A Bunny

Albert Einstein said, "Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them." So I have decided not to use prescription drugs to stop the party going on in my gall bladder instead of having it removed.

 I'm using a different mind sets- Drinking live raw juices and doing the complete OPPOSITE of the way I have been eating on the ships-Eliminating  Animal Flesh (Red Meat) Eliminating  Excess (Bad) Fats and Oils (Fried Foods) Eliminate Milk, Cheese, Eggs,Dairy Products. Eliminating  Acid Addictions (Coffee). Replacing White  Sugar with Honey.


I am juicing these healing tonics for  these benefits: basically lots of dense vitamins and minerals, and reduction of inflammation, and providing a more alkaline state for my digestion.

I Got Some New Glasses...of Juice!
 and the wonderful Rooibos, bush tea from South Africa
I'm Alkalizing--Eating my colors
ORANGE (Carrots,Cantaloupe, Sweet Potatoes,)
GREEN (Celery, Cucumber, Lettuce, Greens )
RED (Beets, Watermelon, Tomatoes, Pomegranates).
WHITE (Garlic, Onions)
YELLOW (Lemons, Grapefruit, Pineapple).
 I'm Hydrating-drinking more water. This is the other component of the Juice FEAST/FAST.


It has been two weeks since I had coffee- Did I give it up? No It gave me up. I'm listening to my body.

MOVING FROM CHANGE TO PROGRESS

On The Set Of Soldier 1998

PROGRESS=HAPPINESS It has an aliveness to it. Change is automatic but progress is not.

If you want to take the Island, burn the boats- An I for an Island. I have a VISION for what I truly want-creating perfect health and fitness.  I'm going for the washboard abs again. 

My physical body  was  the absolute standard I had to live by . My brain  always found a way to keep me there, eating clean and drinking raw fresh vegetable and fruit juices. I always found a way to get back to total fitness.

Working on the ships, I bought a juicier onboard but the ritual of  doing it everyday no longer became a must but a should. I didn't back up my standards wit the rituals of working out, eating clean, and after 4 years onboard, I gained weight.

Sure, I worked out, and went through the motions,  but I didn't create a sustainable result. The  food I ate was so different. (I added meat to my diet, and almost always ate dessert) I really believe that I chose this alternative because I wanted to travel around the world. I have had too much variance with acidity. Now I am alkalizing again. The PH balance is rebooting!

My tweets from 2008:

The quality of your life is the quality of your communication. Health is that conversation you are constantly having with your body mind and soul. Are you ready to: Turn on your metabolism to Burn Body Fat and Build Lean Muscle Mass?

It is easier to change a man's religion than his diet. What if your diet was your religion? What if your body was not a dumpster but a temple? What if you worshiped it? What if everybody and every body became their own personal savior, their own nutritional Jesus? Their own what? Their own no-body. Experience your own deliverance through Extreme Eating 



I am back on the living foods diet, I just bought another juicer and fresh fruits and vegetables to do a liver/ gallbladder detox. It's all about Conscious eating, something I  can easily stray from when on the ships.


wrote about this  in 2004:

What is a extreme eating ? Extreme eating is based on consuming unprocessed, preferably organic, whole plant-based foods,at least 75 per cent of which should be uncooked. IIt involves juicing, blending and chopping: fresh fruits and vegetables nuts seeds beans grains legumes dried fruits seaweeds sun-dried fruits other organic or natural foods which have not been processed freshly made fruit and vegetable juices purified water (not tap) milk from a young coconut The art of conscious eating.It’s all about the water content, all about the food value. When you eat it raw, you get both higher levels of water content and greater food value.

Benefits of a Raw Diet 

Create true quantum leaps in your personal self awareness. 
Create remarkable improvements in your mental and emotional health - even in areas that have stubbornly resisted change with other approaches 
Dramatically increase your production of vital (and very pleasurable) brain chemicals related to your longevity, well-being, and quality of life just singing the suburban (cruise ship),cardboard  blues 

By going raw, you are not just stopping from cooking your food, but changing the amounts, types, and proportions of foods and nutrients in a profound way. Near or total avoidance of certain potential "problem" foods. 

Grains, which were not a part of the human diet for its 2-million-year history until the last 10,000 years, and can be tolerated raw only with difficulty, are avoided or minimized by raw-fooders.

 Significantly lower your stress levels and lower your levels of harmful brain chemicals related to stress intensely heightened senses (even colors get brighter) 
vastly increased energy 
decreased anxiety
 increased creativity, mental clarity, attention span 
diminished unhealthy cravings 
decreased need for sleep and better sleep
 increased patience and sense of calm 
glowing skin a far more delicious, yet less compulsive, sexuality a stronger, faster, leaner, more beautiful body a more delicious natural body smell/taste

Lemon  and Hot Water @SBXS

Flyboarding The Sky at Geist Reservoir
Aquaman meets Iron Man-This gadget bolts on to a jet ski, then routes the water jet through a long hose that connects to a pair of jet boots and hand-held stabilizers. The arrangement lets you fly, Iron Man style, up to 9 meters in the air - or leap headfirst through the waves like a human dolphin.

The bigger the Summer vacation, the harder the fall


The Caribbean Blue waters were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Now I kiss the ground and drop anchor. The fact that we often judge the pleasure of an experience by its ending can cause us to make some curious choices---like,What to Do Next?

All ending are beginnings. We just don't know it at the time.

Mission Accomplished- I 've been a 1 man National Geographic on that everywhere trip. Now cancel my subscription because I am done with that "issue".


My life of Pie -aka, the United States of Unconscious Eating needs a rest.I fell down standing up.


Always on 24/7 food is hurting my stomach. If it doesn't kill you it will make you stronger, but the food almost killed me. My choice.  Now I can Think Global and Eat Local on land, enjoying mouthfuls of life--raw fresh vegetables and juices and live foods.


 The Importance Of Being Ernest(Hemingway)

The world (Cruise Line Food) breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry 

Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

The sky is a suspended blue ocean. The stars are the fish that swim. The planets are the white whales I sometimes hitch a ride on, And the sun and all light Have forever fused themselves Into my heart and upon my skin. There is only one rule on this wild playground, For every sign Hotel @nyware has ever seen reads the same. They all say, 

"Have fun, my dear; my dear, have fun, In the Beloved's Divine Game, O, in the Beloved's Wonderful Game." - Hafiz

When I need to access a high quality visual memory of a Turquoise Beach, I will have to say  Write About Here here in the Bahamas.  No lifeguards but  the Sun supervises it all. I am reminded of the gratitude:

"Even After All this time The Sun never says to the Earth,You owe me. Look what happens with a love like that----It lights the whole sky." Hafiz


This private island in the Bahamas, is a Disney Cruise Line port of call. In answer to the question: "When Is The Copy Better Than The Original?" This would be it. The sand has been sifted to a fine white powder. The mosquitoes  are nowhere to be found. The water is crystal clear and turquoise blue. Paradise found. Escape TO reality

Underwent a  new record 4.1 inches of rainfall in the Florida Keys. The roads and sidewalks were barely visible. back on the ship, it was an awesome site. Nothing like rain to wash away the dust of the day. Roll Video:

 
Just 12 hours prior, I was on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay,where the waves sing along with the seagulls. The wind whispers The Secret.

Non Conformists Are All Alike.
