I will push you and help you reach your goals. If you're not joining, I would appreciate any advice or any words to motivate or inspire me. I'm on day one and I'm fighting! I'll be posting my recipes and experience day by day until WE reach 30 days. If you stop after 30 days, don't go back to old habits! EAT HEALTHIER and excersice. Do it for your own good. Love yourself enough to make this change. Question for you... Do you want to be happier? Do you want to feel more energy? Live longer? Be able to do things you were never able to?

I am starting Day 3. So far, so good.
Worked out fairly hard yesterday with pushups and pullups and core, and it felt good. The juices are filling and taste good -- the only problems is the time it takes to prepare five juices daily. But I will get that time down.
Sneezing, runny nose, and a headache are my main symptoms. Hot tea helps. I woke at 5AM this morning and felt good. This initial phase should be over by day 5, maybe sooner.
I am following the 30-day plan in the book "Reboot With Joe". My only divergence is that I will juice a full 30 days, not 25 as per the plan.
At the end of this reboot I will eat 50% raw vegan, which has been my goal all along. Eventually I want to eat 75% raw vegan. During this reboot I will read a couple books on raw food and prepare for that.
Last night I had to run and pick up Chinese takeout for my daughter and her friend. The food smelled good, but I am so clear in my goal I just carried the bag in and, later, asked them how they like the food.
Concurrently with this reboot I am working on an exercise program to do 100 pushups and 20 pullups. My beloved partner tells me that my philosophy of "You create your own reality" is a philosophy, but cannot change one's life. I want to use my life to show her that yes, we can create our lives as we wish. I'm doing this for us.
Have a wonderful day.
Well i fell off the wagon today, more like I did a belly flop off the high dive in slow motion with a smile on my face. But I'm ok with that. I juiced in the morning, all was well then kids got out of school at 11 and it was their last day so we went somewhere to eat lunch. I stayed mostly healthy there with no processed stuff and then for dinner i had a salad (mostly the same stuff that i juice). I am going to stray away from the course here but will still incorporate the juice and let you all know how it goes, i have to weigh in almost everyday for medical reasons so i can monitor the weight gain/loss. I had an eating disorder in the past that got out of control, lets just say when I reached out for help i was only eating 240 calories a day which was low for a guy my size 6 foot 5 inches tall and back then I was about 260 ( i would only eat grapefruit, and i would have 3 a day). Anyways good luck to you all.
Best wishes to you.
I'm starting tomorrow. Dreading the detox symptoms as I haven't taken the time to wean myself off all the junk food that i've consumed in my final year of college. in need of some desperate support. I'm planning on doing three months of juices smoothies and if these are both unavailable (if travelling) then the odd salad.
i'm starting at 230 pounds would ideally like to get to 140 and then introduce more food and then intense exercise. hopefully it works out, I hope posting on here everyday will hold me accountable. currently re-watching Joe's documentaries all over again.
I didnt diet down either and I did feel rough the first few days. I could have easily chucked the towel in a hundred times over! Im not exaggerating . All I can say is it does get better if you stick with it. Good luck!
I started today too, got the mix wrong and didn't even like the juice. But I drank it throughout the day.
The detox doesn't sound pleasant at all but I intend to view any side effects as the juice working :-)
Day 4 - 305.4 this morning. I've got to that point to where your asking yourself why am i doing this. I might not make a full 30 days and im ok with that. I plan on trying to be more active and make healthier food choices if i can make it to 14 June then im ok and can accept that, that's now my goal date. Plus if I can get under 300lbs that would be amazing, 275 would be even better, 250 would be fantastic, 219 would be a miracle.
Im with you buddy! My sons 21st party is tomorrow... its been torture buying the food and preparing it now is awful!! I plan not to come off my fast but know it will be pure hell tomorrow!
Just hang in there Ive only lost 5 pounds and I have at least 90 to lose. It is awful when you listen to others losing a stone in a week but maybe your weight and mine will start to go down more as we go on. I do have more energy today (thank god) and my headache is gone. Keep going Im guessing you did this because other diets didnt work.
My energy really started picking up on day 7....but then on about 11 started dragging....i had some blood work done to check my anemia and was back to blood transfusion level.....i have iron deficient anemia ( since i was a kid) so yesterday day 15 i tried adding 1 small meal to help me hold down my iron supplements,,,having a hard time not throwing them up without food......but omg just the little bit of grilled veggies made me miserable....so juice it is.....just gotta find a way to take my iron, b12 and folic acid without puking!!
Thanks for your help. I sympathise with you. Aneamia is awful and I have had to take the tablets in the past too. Ive had liquid iron also but thats nasty too. You could try raw fruit or veg with your tablets ? Might be better than cooked food? Let me know how you get on.
i was hungry today, started thinking about my favorite foods and stuff. Almost broke but I kept to the juicing. Had to go to 2 different stores to find kale and they were both out so i got some romaine lettuce instead as a substitute. I also picked up some sugar free gum. Anyone tried any of the almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla smoothie? can we have that now or is that after the juicing challenge?
I have had an almond milk smoothie with a superjuiceme plan but that was in week 2 of the plan so it might be too early to introduce this but Im not 100% and I could be wrong. I hope day 3 is better than yesterday hang in there.
Grocery shopping yesterday for the family was torture!
I want to work out at the gym while I'm juicing and I thought I read a post about adding protein powder to a smoothie. I have some I was going to use. It's "Natural Factors" organic contains "whey protein concentrate and isolate (milk)" and other stuff. Would it be ok to add one scoop of this a day to a smoothie (80cal)?
I dont think your protein powder is suitable as it contains dairy which is one of the things you are supposed to avoid on this plan. Try and get yourself a vegetable or hemp protein instead. There are many options available from health food stores or amazon. Hope this helps.
Does anyone know on what day the increased energy kicks in? I still feel quite faint at points during the day. This gets worse if Im doing tasks ie housework etc.
Please let me know Im on day 5 and haven't had the energy burst everyone talks about.
I think by day 6 or 7, if I remember correctly. But I will let you know for sure as I progress this time around.
If you feel faint I recommend elevating your legs. When I did the juice fast a few years back I almost fainted coming out of a hot tub but I hung onto the railing.
Try to relax for now and take it easy. This is a spiritual journey.
Soon you'll start sleeping less as the energy ratchets up.
Day 1 almost over and no hunger pains. Just a headache.
Mine kicked in about day 4, but I wasn't paying attention to certain things like keeping down the amount of fruit, which is where the energy comes from. I too have challenges with energy. What I noticed is something someone else commented on - I felt more "competent" - by that I mean, I had more initiative. I felt I didn't have to think as much about it before I handled a crisis or a regular activity. Eg. today on my walk my friend got a call so we stopped walking for her to take it....I finished my smoothie I was carrying, washed out the container in the restroom, then I ran to the car to drop it off....I RAN.....I haven't run even a step in months. This was the first time. And I didn't think about it much beyond thinking....Hey, maybe if I run to the car, it'll take less time. So hope that helps. Just my experience so far. I"m only on day 5, too. I hope tomorrow is the day you get your boost of energy because Memorial Day weekend is coming up and you'll really enjoy it more if you get your boost!
Ivonne have you tried coco water or tea? not sure if it would help or not. I think in the video one of the people had a headache but it went away after day 7 i think. Good Luck.
I am starting Day 1 of the juicing-only phase of the 30-day reboot. So far, so good. I am glad for the pre-juciing phase because I cut out soda, snack, candy and suffered through slowness and chills. I'll know by Day 3 how bad this will be before it becomes sublime, which it will.
I am going to track what I spend and document it.
