Without going to Daniel's Negreanu's vegetarianism (a good idea BTW ...), there is healthy middle ground with the first step just jettisoning the junk food ... period.

You don't have to buy a HUROM slow juicer (I did & it is great http://slowjuicer.com/) but it is hard to go wrong with freshly made fruit juices for energy.
