Hi Layana83 - nice to meet you. Yes, I've read some of Joe's books. I got a new juicer from my son for Christmas year before last (2015) and did a lot of research at that time about juicing etc. Thats when I bumped into Joe Cross and his movie and books. That Spring (2016) I tried my first reboot on my own, somewhat successfully. I went for 3 weeks and can say I felt great by the end.
I think for me, the transition back into regular living and 'life' is the hardest part. I also had major surgery this past December (2016) - a year later - (to help my back after an injury) and have had issues with my digestion, face breakouts, feeling hot/cold, and energy level since. I've never had to take so many drugs, pain meds, etc - altho for a short time. It helped the surgery and recovery issues but really messed my system up! I know I need to rebuild my gut flora and get my system back in balance. And I need support to do it. So this time I got on Joe's site and signed up for the 15 day guided reboot. It is my gift to me. In addition I need to drop about 25 lbs I gained while lying around recuperating.
Our 15 day reboot "coach" is a naturopath and she has already helped with some suggestions on tinctures to take to 'reboot my liver' while on this journey. I'd already been working with probiotics to rebuild my gut flora on my own. I'm also attempting to get back to the gym. I've been kinda dreading it but I'm gonna push myself to get it done. I know that once I start, after the first week or so, it wont be a big deal anymore. I focus primarily on water exercises and swimming, water classes, walking, and tai chi.
What is your weightloss goal? - and/or - other health goals? I didnt find out about the reboot soon enough to start slowly like you did, but we start the reboot for the first 5 days with a mix of juice, salads, soups, smoothies, and vegies before a full 10 days of juice only. I'm only one day in, but so far so good. In fact I had a hard time eating everything we were supposed to. I was stuffed by the end of yesterday! :)
I do love the way that his books and the guided reboot plans are so helpful with the shopping lists, recipes, menus, and encouragement. Now I'm finding that we can make new friends and gain support too, which I think is awesome. Joe Cross is doing a great service in helping so many people all over the world dont you think? I know that I'm very grateful to have stumbled upon his story and support. He and his team are really helping us to set ourselves up to be successful. Ok Layana83, I think I've written you a short book! lol....Best of luck with your efforts today! And hopefully I can get myself out to exercise today after my morning juice. If my body will cooperate, I'll give it a go :) ttyl
