Post On Group Wall
Hello all! I'm just starting my first day and I planned it so that the main 'bad' days land on my no-plans weekend :) I'm glad I found this group. Other ones don't seem so active :/ Anyways, I've tried two juices today that, although they tasted good, they just weren't my cup of tea. I just want to get a bit more of sense on the type of juices I should be taking. In the book, it shows an example of how to go through the day with options of red, orange or green juices, coconut water and all that just perplexes me! I hope to just sticking to a couple of basic juices and just switch them throughout the days. Also herbal tea and lots of water everyday but I am concerned about the lack of protein..
I've read in a lot of places that your juices should be made up with mostly vegetables, too much fruit can prevent weight loss as they are high in sugars!!!, I personally tried so many types of juices and the only one I like is joes green mean!, good luck with the reboot you can do it!!
Kale is pretty high in protein and a handful of nuts usually also does the trick. When on a juice fast I'll just have a shake with frozen strawberries, a banana and a scoop of protein powder for breakfast.Good luck!!
This can be done, a lot of my family and friends say that it took will power but I say that I just couldn't continue the path I was on...and the mental roller coaster was far more harder to ride than the reality of truth ...and for me that was to just do what needed to get done...!
DAY 26...WEEK #4
WoW!...too late to quit now....lol
I'm planning for my Phase II ...another thirty days....
I decided to eat something before starting Phase II....i'm not sure why, but I am....
I have been very patient with myself and grateful that my body took this journey with me....last time i checked- (last Monday- i have lost a total of 23 pounds, about 10-12 inches of belly fat....and I feel better and excited to see what will happen next....i have NOT, i repeat NOT... exercised NOT one time....BUT...i did respect what ever my body wanted to do, that moment and I did that....(i.e. resting, more juice, quiet time and reading, or just water)....in the next phase, i will exercise and juice accordingly....i'm not sure if I have to move to another group....lol...but I have enjoyed the well wishes, reading your posts and thank the group for making me accountable....as I posted the day count....i hoped it would motivate someone to continue.....
Wow well done, I really hope I have the strength to get as far as you did!!, I can't wait to get as far along as what you are, you should be so proud of yourself! , i am only on day 6 and so far i have lost 2 inches on my waist. How long did it take you to start seeing more extreme changes?
on day 5 and I haven't lost any weight at all, knowing this is just making me want to give up
@Meesha.....don't give up....your body is more than forgiving and will make up the difference when it catches up to the changes.....sometimes it takes a moment to kick-in.....sometime its rebellious and defiant and sometimes it might be in a starvation mode of holding on until it adjusts and recognizes that it has to eat your storage body fat....just make sure that you are drinking your 64 oz juice, not a lot of fruit tho' and drink 1/2 your body in water.....
here a couple of my suggestions that worked for me to kick start....
***drink your juice/water, every day.
***do not exercise yet and rest and (lol, float) into the next five or six days.....exercise confuses the body, it really doesn't know how to respond....
***and I stuck to green juice, only the first couple of weeks ...i didn't care if my body, my taste buds, my thoughts went crazy...thats all it was getting.....lol..
I hope this helps...
but don't give up.
@msdeeme thank you for the advice you don't know how much I needed to hear this!!, today is the first day I have noticed a tiny difference, I find it difficult to drink more than 3 juices a day, is that enough??
@Meesha...you can do this....and 5 days , 6 days, 300 days, or one million days...lol are all the same....one day is a day...never demolish that....and if you become in tuned with your body...and the process, you will be able to adapt to what needs to done for YOU ???...
ummmmm...i do not think that 3 juices are enough....remember that part in the movie FS&ND when the cartoon, showed you the benefits of scrubbingand supplying the cells what was needed for repair...well I kind've ...live by that ...i try to give my body what it needs to battle and giving it too little outs in more jeapordy than none....so a suggestion could be...make 8 oz, mason jars of juice [make 8] and drink one (1) each hour...maybe taking it in smaller portions will help you adjust ...try that for a week....and you will be giving your body the nutrients more gently instead of a rush of 16oz every 4 hours...maybe this will help accumulate more juice then you normally do....lol you will have 60 minutes to fight with yourself to get it in....lol.....i hope this helps....i look forward to reading you've reached your goal....
also...i began seeing results when I search for results....i get on the scale at the supermarket HIGI, everyweek and email it to myself...thats my tracking...and I take a pic of my stomach, every morning as a reminder that ...this is why...lol....and if I'm crazy that day, I measure my inches and take a pic...but I don't stress myself ...i am allowing my body to do what it needs to do to repair the damage....if weight decreases, great...if inches decreases, great...if clothes fall off...lol I was walking and my pants just fell down....i was what in the heck?....i pulled up so fast, lol...but that helped me to know that what was happening was happening and for me that was more satisfying than the mental hangup of the scale numbers...i honestly focus more getting 1/2 my body weight in water and that's 6-8 (16.9) per day...lol...do the math and you will know my weights range...lol...so, when your body wants to reward you...it will show you....lool forward to that as your mark of success...
It took me 6 failures during the initial phases. I would usually cheat on day 2 and find myself at a taco stand.
Like joe says "good on you for trying"... I finally made it on the 7th attempt and am now on day 9 and feel amazing. I walked 3 miles today.... You can do it!!!!!
Evening All, So I'm planning a 30 day cleanse starting Monday and joined this group for motivation and ideas on getting through work on just juice. I plan to go walking in the evenings and start using my exercise bike.....so let the juicing begin....Fingers crossed 1 day at a time....
Hi all! I just bought a juicer and started juicing today! I'm in for health more than weight loss, although that will be a welcome side-effect. I have Hashimoto's and CIU (just like Joe Cross) and am tired of being sick and tired and overly-medicated.
I purchased one of his juice recipe books from Amazon but apparently it won't arrive for a few weeks (WHAT!!!???) so I'm winging it on recipes. Any ideas? Plans?
@jill... suggestion is maybe just drink green juice for the first couple weeks
also.....go on the internet and just find 10 recipes that you may like ...have fun experimenting with those....try drinking them and the green juice....
when you get ten then get another ten....
and only stick with them until you get the hang of things.....i brought five juicing books and I maybe only tried a few...i did by the juicing bible, braggs and Joe cross' book and if you watch the movie, FS & ND, when Joe is in the N.Y. juice store there is a yellow menu ....screen shot that and copy those recipes.....(this list is also on pintrest) make your own list/book of the juices you like and can stick too.....
I hope this helps you...!
Still feeling under the weather. I'm using my commitment to juicing to influence other areas of my life and create a better sense of well being.
I am a fairly anxious person, which can be debilitating. I'm trying to be more purposeful about resting my body and mind.
I fasted yesterday and will have a couple of juices this morning. I feel like I'm on the verge of getting better, but still feeling weak.
Einstein said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.
If I want a radically better sense of well being, I have to make radically different changes in my lifestyle. Juicing is a paper of this.
I'm trying to get to around 172. Main goal is to get closer to 20% body fat.
Let's call today officially day one!
Hit rock bottom this last week financially, emotionally, and physically. I had a terrible cold and between taking tons of TheraFlu everyday, which is loaded with sugar and making some poor food choices, I now weigh the most I have ever weighed: 182.5 pounds and have the highest body fat I've ever had: 25.4%.
Feeling better today. Not 100%, but 100x better than I felt last week. Shaved and took a shower, which I hate to admit is a big deal for me. I've allowed myself to be a slob - to present myself as a lesser person than I am. This stops now!
Had a tasty smoothie: spinach, parsley, ginger, nectarine slice, handful berries, and chia seeds. I'm now going to take my vitamins and will drink 30 ounces of lemon water with a shot of apple cider vinegar fore 8am.
No more settling. Its comeback time!
I am in with you. I am at 183 this morning. How much are you hoping to lose in the long run?
a few members in the group asked me for help...and what I do" and i want to say, i can't respond to all...but I can say...i try to post positive things to encourage the group...quotes or my experience, hoping that it helps....i'm in this with you guys....lol!
Juicing is not easy, Its a DISCIPLINE...its a New MINDSET and you can't focus on juicing if you keep focusing on what you look like, what you feel...feel what you feel- if you are tired GO TO SLEEP, if you have energy, use it or loose it...lol... and/or what the scale says and the ultimate recording that you can't do this...now I've juiced 2-3 attempts before and I didn't reach 30-60 days, as planned and although I'm on my 21st Day ...i still got 12 days to go to get to Aug 10th....i can't look that far ahead, I can only do one day on that day...i focus on that days water intake and that days juice...i juice once a day mostly green juices and prepare a 16oz for the next AM...thats it...i drink (3)16.9 of water by 11:00 am and (1) 16-24 oz of juiceAM and afternoon 32 oz and 16-24 PM...in between I get all my water in try to get in by 7-8 PM.
YOU HAVE TO DO, what works for YOU!
THIS is What I've done from the beiginning....i made it as simple as I could, no pressures....im learning to listen to what my body wants and not overload it with what I don't know yet....!!
I'm here...lol...if you inbox me...i will help as much as I can.....
