    No worries. Your body is proceeding at its own pace.

    The more calories you burn through activity, the more weight you lose, if that's what you want to do.

    Brittney, don't be harsh on yourself. 8 lbs in 7 days is a great start. Keep it up. I'm on day 3.. it's hard, but one day at a time.

    Why 90 days, Tony? Are you on a guided fast, or did you mean to say 60 days?

    Day 13 of 30.



    I swam during the lunch hour, which felt empowering. The symptoms are gone. I notice that I sleep long and deep, just barely remembering my dreams.



    The birds singing through the open window are an immense joy. As is the sun. News and political troubles seem much more distant from me, and though food smells wonderful when my daughter makes a pizza, I don't want to eat and lose this feeling.



    The human body has an amazing ability to adapt and heal, as does the heart.

    Hi day 6. Went through my detox phase and have frankly been on a high... today a high with feelings. I've been contemplating my issues around food and Frankly I'm sick of the B.S. I tell myself. I'm sick of how badly I treat my body. I'm sick of being tired from carbs and sugar. Im sick of eating out at restaurants where a plate of food is 3000 calories, and I eat it all. I'm sick and tired of being sick. I'm angry. I've had enough! on that note, I currently feel a little discouraged also. I live in a country where too much is the norm and I'm sick of it. So sick of it. I live in a country where its ok to use hundreds of food chemicals to keep us addicted. Ive been riding my bike frequently. What strikes me today is how the choice is always up to me what I choose to put in my mouth, and how much. It's always that way. I see the generation before me suffer from ailments related to obesity, like diabetes, and I'm not going to be one of them. Sick of not being able to move like i want or tie my shoes like i want. Wow, I'm mad.

    Hey!! Congrats on day 6!! Your doing great!! I have been a person up until recent who always allowed my emotions to get the better of me, if worry was in the air I mastered it. I never understood why "bad" things always happen to me. I think the best advice I have is something you have already touched on when it comes to your eating, it's up to you!! What you chose to put in your mouth, I feel this way about how we react and use our emotions. What you put in your body determines how our bodies function, the better we eat the the better we feel, we get is what we put in. Your anger is just the same, I know that when I'm anger or frustrated I am not happy but when I'm in a good mood and enjoying my life I am happy. What I'm trying to say is if you put out anger because of the things you can't control like the food chemicals that these companies have put into food, we have no control of what they are doing only if we buy into them, Right now you are on a high because you have overcame your detox phase but you have anger, try letting it go by focusing your thoughts more positively towards the goals you have with this reboot journey you are on. You be surprised how a change in your attitude towards things you can't control can improve your outlook on life!! Best a luck to you and feel free to reach out if you need a friend because I know I could use another :)

    We can create our own reality through our thoughts. You can release anger, but at some point you will want to look at your thoughts and see how to change them, as Tamra says.

    Here is a wonderful interview with Louise Hay on this topic:

    The Reboot is a spiritual journey, most of all.

    Hi Leatherfeet. You gave me some encouragement. I've tried to start this fast so many times over so many years, and today I began. Some can do it one week at a time, I have to get through it one hour at a time, but, thanks to you, this time I'm determined.

    Hi everyone. I'm here starting again the challenge. Today is my first day and i´m very excited. I know that isn't easy. I made it for 20 days in october of 2015 and it was great. I reach excellent results. But now i´m going to do it again by 30 days. My better wishes to everyone.

    Hi. i was wondering if anyone has tried the bottled Naked Juices that you can find at your local grocery store ?? i wanted to get a few bottles for those crazy days that i don't have time to hive my own. i read that they are 100% veggie and fruit juice. If anyone has any input that would be great!

    I am on day 6, down 7 pounds which seems like a miracle, for the most part I'm negotiating through but have had some social situations that I had to be fairly frank with. I am showing up "after supper " and let people know I've already ate, and just having an after supper tea, seems to work a little better that explaining the whole concept and sitting through a meal while everyone else eats. Honestly I commend those of you that have families and significant others, for myself I am on my own, so fairly easy to do what I want :)I have decided that if I can't get out of a meal I will have a plain salad or a vegetable soup and just be ok with that. My challenge is that I have huge swings in energy levels, when I'm energetic, I'm super energetic and when I'm tired, I'm so tired I can barely keep



    My eyes open, any one



    With this issue?

  • Leatherfeet

    I'm dealing with similar issues. I have some of the same ideas. One is to just plan not to be with people longer than 1/2 a day. Plan things around lunch or right after,and then say I've eaten. That gives me until 5 or 6 to avoid the subject of eating. There is someone in my life I hang out with frequently, and she likes to go out to eat a lot. I thought of just telling her that I want to take a break from eating out for awhile. If she insists in eating out when we are together, then I am planning to just have tea. I rehearsed what I might say to people if I needed, and honestly I just would rather not, just like you, get into talking about the fast, then having everyone's radar on it and asking me about it. Like you I thought there's no harm in a garden salad on the fast. For me it's not about going x amount of days without food. I tend to swing from one extreme to the other as it is. In my journey it might be better mentally to eat a salad or soup now and then. Lots of people do modified reboots and its mot failure, it's about what you want out of it. When I'm low energy I drink coconut water. And if I don't have to work, I sleep. The body must need the rest. I may not be the best person to comment. I guess a person has to be clear on their goal and resolve and intentions. Be introspective about themselves. Ie, am I finding an excuse to eat when I don't want to, or am I sincerely needing to eat for my own reasons, and be clear about it. I think the most important part of this journey is easing into eating slowly. I want to learn how to eat a different way. Grazing. I think juicing as a precursor is excellent because you're not eating for awhile, then there's space to start eating slowly. Not to mention eating cleanly. Just giving my 2 cents, mostly my intention here is to show youre not alone with these questions.

    Day 11 of 30 for juicing only. Yesterday I swam half a mile and worked in the yard digging out dead bushes. The sun felt great on my face.



    The symptoms have disappeared for the most part and I feel really good. My next step is to figure out how to make the juices I really like and still stick to the Green/Red/Orange jucie regiem outlined in the book Reboot With Joe.



    This feels like a long walk across difficult but beautiful land. And the deeper I go into the journey, the less I want it to end.



    By next week I will order a couple books on Raw Fod diet and start preparing for that after that Reboot. My goal is 50% Raw, which should not be difficult. I'll stil eat honey (debating on eggs) but I have ben a vegetarian for 15 years, so never meat.



    Blessings to all of you on this path.

    Hi, all! I have been working myself up to doing a juice fast by juicing once or twice a day and upping the whole fruits and vegetables. I have an old juicer and just ordered a new one yesterday. I was planning on starting when it comes in on Tuesday. So excited I stumbled upon this group.
