Let's do this. I've already started and am on day 3. I did ok on my first day. Day 2 (yesterday) I actually pretty good. But today I have felt like I am going to DIE. I even gave in and ate some cherries with my wife while at the pool and then devoured three bananas, and I originally set out to do a "juice only" reboot. The worst part is that this isn't my first time around the block. I've done this before but never met my goal because work, college, family life, and various crises kept getting in the way. This time I decided to do it 60 days and not let anything stop me. I feel so much better when I'm juicing and have definitely made it a part of my lifestyle. Even when not fasting, I still drink green juice several times a week. I was sickly growing up, colds, flu, severe allergies; if someone got sick it was guaranteed that I would catch it. But since my first reboot (failed three weeks in), and subsequent juicing, I have managed to stay surprisingly well. Last year, I finished my degree and started a business, then started prepping for law school. I stopped juicing for over 6 months. I started to get sick again. I missed so much work that my business partner expressed doubts about the future of our company. So last May, I decided I MUST do another reboot. I juiced a solid two weeks, lost about 15 pounds, but then had to take a business trip with an associate who at first was very supportive, even wanting to join in, but then became extremely negative and dismissive. He was telling me things like "you can't live on juice." We were working on several mentally exhausting projects and sometimes I got so tired that I couldn't think straight. He kept egging me on to eat with him and go out for food and drinks. Finally I gave in. This past week, however, my wife and my dad both expressed interest in it. My dad is severaly overweight, my wife is actually rather thin. But she has been sick with digestive problems. The doctor put her on some medication and she had one of those moments where she realized she may have to take this the rest of her life. So she decided to do a reboot.
Anyway, back to today. I barely survived today. I technically broke my fast, but at least it was with healthy stuff. I'm going to get back up tomorrow and keep going. 60 DAYS ALL THE WAY!!!
This is my first juice fast and I'm attempting 10 days. I felt fine the first few days, but today I got a little hungry and had a headache. I've been trying to keep up with my water intake. I can do this, I just have to make up my mind that my health is more important than any snack. Idiotcircusdog, hang in there! We can do this! Start off small, then work your way up one day at a time! Good luck!
you can do it. Just keep moving forward and don't give up! That's success.
Day 1 for me of 60 days or more! My last Reboot was 30 days. Thanks for starting up this group! Juice on!
how's it going? Hope you're still hanging in there!
Day 1 out of 60 for me. This is my second juice fast, I did one in 2014 for 40 days, but unfortunately I put all the weight back with eating junk everyday with friends and by going back into my old eating habits. Hopefully this time around I will learn from my mistakes the first time and eat right afterward.
Hi, all! I'd like to join this group to give and to get support:) This is my first time juice fasting and I am attempting to go forty days. Today is Day one and so far I'm feeling good. I am so looking forward to finding the energy and pep that Joe and Phil had in the FS&ND documentary!
I started last week with the intent to go "at least 30 days" but I would really like to go for 60 so I will join in with you! I am on day 9 and although I have had some family events and challenges I am down twelve pounds. I feel like even if I do eat but make it fruits or vegetables then I am still in good shape but it has slowed down the weight loss. I have some bananas due to the muscle cramps and being out of coconut water but i will pick that up tomorrow and will be back in good shape. I am still waiting for that energy and mental clarity but I am grateful the muscle cramps are not as intense and I don't have anymore headaches.
Well done to you. I am on my third fast. People have finally noticed the difference. My usual checkout girl at the supermarket this week said my haircut look 'amazing'. I haven't had a haircut, haha. What I would say is this...don't tell people you are juicing, they don't get it. Either they think you are starving yourself (fasting) or they think it's a kooky weight loss thing OR they are envious you are doing something when that's all they really want to do, but are going to start on Monday! PS in my experience Monday is the worst day to start, choose any other day! Get going people, the fear of failure is much worse than not trying once, twice or more :)
Day one for me of 60 days, may extend to 100 days if I fail to reach my goal weight. Here it goes!
you go, dolly!
I'm on day 2 of 30 day reboot (may stretch it to 40 if it feels right). Feeling headachy and a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of the long stretch ahead without food. When will my energy return? I have an 18 month old son and find feeding him while juicing challenging. But determined to make this work. Good luck all. X
Good luck everyone! I'm on day three and the first two days were HARD but I woke up feeling better this morning! I'm aiming for 30 days too Tamsin. I have children too they are aged 7 and 11 and I struggle cooking for them and juicing for myself but I don't have as many cravings today!
