At the start of the new year, many people reflect on their lives and resolve to make changes that will better their health. For many this means committing to eat better, to exercise, or to resting and relaxing more. Here at WSKV, the DJ’s and staff have elected to take on a REBOOT and we are inviting our listeners to go on this journey with us.
What is a REBOOT? It is a fruit and vegetable juice fast that lasts up to 10 days or beyond. The process of “rebooting” has been made famous by Joe Cross, who decided to embark on a 60 day juice fast as chronicled in the documentary “Fat, Sick , and Nearly Dead.” The results of Joe’s fast is nothing short of amazing. Not only did he lose more than 80 pounds, but he also found that he was incredibly cured of his chronic illness. Today, Joe makes a full time job of encouraging others to try the REBOOT so they may experience similar results.
Our plan is to roll out the information about the REBOOT on the air starting January 14th, then to begin the actual juice fast on January 21st. Our REBOOT will be supervised by Steve Day from the Home for Health Lifestyle Center who is also planning a public viewing of the documentary “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” in Stanton at the Powell County Extension Office meeting room.
If the REBOOT is not for you, but you are interested in losing weight, the Powell County Extension Office and Foothills Health and Wellness Center is offering a weight loss program that is free and open to the public, Wednesdays at 4:30pm for 10 weeks starting January 9th. At each meeting, participants will weigh in, learn healthy recipes, sample food, gain excercise tips, and will be eligible for prizes at the end of the program! For more information, contact Pam Dooley at 663-6405 or Stacy Crase at 663-9011.
And for the guys, the Powell County Big Hunk Club is for men who want to learn more about lifestyle changes in relation to losing weight and body fat. The class will meet each Thursday afternoon from 4:30-4:45pm at the Powell County Extension Office. Be prepared to weigh in at each session and discuss your progress on your way to a healthier life! Call Mike Reed for more information at 663-6405.
