In 2002, Jo contracted a severe case of Glandular Fever which moved onto Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This meant she had to take a step back from competition for 12mths to recover.
I was a HUGE fan of the Atkins diet and pretty much ate protein and nothing else! Crazy! (And I wondered why I had no energy and why I kept getting sick.) I was getting chest infections every three weeks, for nearly 6mths straight! And because they always progressed quite quickly, I had to continually go on anti-biotics. My immune system was completely shot and I was very unhealthy while trying to train and compete at a national level. I used to eat a lot of sugary foods to compensate for feeling so lousy. Juice Plus+® stopped the cravings within a few days and I found myself reaching for an apple and fresh fruit and vegies as a snack instead of an energy drink or something similar. This was highly unusual for me!
My friend’s even commented on how funny it was to see me eating fruit and vegies instead of running down the shop to get a quick fix for energy. In regards to my new attitude to sport and getting the best out of myself, perseverance and determination is what I believe it is all about; one step after the other, every day, dealing with every situation the best way that you can.”
Australian Sailing Team
“I was in the Australian Sailing Team from 2001-2004, and went to Athens Olympics (2004) as Sarah Blanck’s training partner (Sarah won the selections). During this time I was working 6am-10am, going sailing, training with weights for 1-2hrs, then going back to work from 4-8pm. Needless to say I was exhausted most of the time! My routine continued into 2006 and I found myself getting injured and run-down. I had a cold every second week and was sore everyday. In April 2006 I met Andrew McNickle, who introduced me to Juice Plus+®. I have not been sick since I started taking Juice Plus+®, and I have regained most of my personality that was somewhat drained during my years as an athlete! My mother and I continue to take Juice Plus+® everyday and I feel great about myself and my health.”

“A good fitness program does not substitute bad eating habits”.

U.S. Olympic Water Polo Team
In 1977, seventeen year old Maureen O’Toole began playing on the U.S. Water Polo Team. Over many years the women’s water polo team fought to get women’s water polo made a division in the Olympics. By the year 2000, their wish had come true. At the time, Maureen had been in retirement for the past four years, only to come out of it for the chance to finally compete in the Olympics. “I said, ‘Wow, we’re finally it for the chance to compete in the Olympics. This is going to be such fun.’ I had no idea what I was getting myself into.”
The last two years leading up to the Olympics were physically the hardest two years of her life. She was 39 years old and to play water polo at that level was extremely difficult. She trained six or seven hours a day, six days a week. On top of that, she needed extra energy to care for her daughter Kelly.
At the Olympics, the US Water Polo team ended up playing Australia in a heated game in the finals. Maureen and her team ended up taking home the silver medal.
“I don’t believe I would have made it had it not been for Juice Plus+®. I’m super proud that I won a silver medal for the United States. I thank Juice Plus+® for helping me get there and I will continue to take it for the rest of my life.”

U.S. Olympic Ski Champion
The rigors of 10 years of racing on the World Cup and Olympic downhill ski racing tour took a toll on my body! I knew I needed to eat better–especially more fruits and vegetables–but simply did not have the time. Athletes are always looking for the edge, and I have found some pretty great things in my search for vibrant health!
“As an Olympic athlete, I have always tried to absorb as much as I could about good nutrition. I knew that fruits and vegetables were good for you and learned that foods can heal. But try as I might, I knew I didn’t eat enough. Then I finally got it, Juice Plus+®. Bottom line is I believe in Juice Plus+®.”
Katie was a full-time student when she became the first teenager to place in the top twenty at the Fitness America Pageant – ESPN National Championships in November of ‘96. After winning her first competition, the ‘96 Louisiana Regional, the 19-year-old from Hammond, Louisiana went on to win an ESPN 2 series event in Redondo Beach and then placed 14th at the ESPN Nationals.
For those who said it was just beginner’s luck, ‘97 went on to see Katie win the Louisiana Regional for a second time as well as another ESPN 2 event in Miami Beach.
“In 1997, I was training hard and did not have the energy. I couldn’t get stronger. I couldn’t go further in competition. It was early in 1998 that my sister Shelly introduced me to Juice Plus+®. That was a great year for me and changed my life. I won three competitions in three weeks and proved to myself that I could compete again. People ask me all the time, ‘How do you do all that you do?’ I answer, Juice Plus+® and my daughter.”
