Wonderful Job and a great story!

How did you find juicing for 60 days?

I did it for two and started to gag at the thought of it. I really admire you sticking with it John.

Is your wife Vegan too - what a great support to you she is! She has probably saved your life :)

I've always been able to eat/drink pretty much anything. Consistency and taste don't really bother me for some reason. I may not like the taste or consistency of something, but I don't have that strong of a gag reflex, so I can just force it down.

With the juicing diet, I actually started liking the taste of the juices after about 2 weeks. Plus I always made a fruit-only juice once a day to help keep my sanity.

EDIT:
But if I had to give some advice on how to stick with it I would say to do the following:
1) always pour the juice through a hand colander to get any remaining sediment out
2) don't do what most people do and put it on ice and sip on it; instead, drink it with a straw and drink the whole glass in about 10 seconds, that way it's over fast.

And no, my wife isn't vegan, but she eats vegan around me. She has her meat a few times throughout the week on her lunch breaks. But she was, and remains, very supportive.
