    Hi, everyone! I'm still sitting around 205 lbs, which was my weight when I came off my fast about 5 weeks ago. I can officially say it IS possible to come off the fast and not gain weight. The scale is starting to drop again, telling me my metabolism has adjusted now. And phew! I can not wait to hit 199 lbs and a size 16 jean. That's my next short-term goal. Right now I am following my post-fast plan, which is vegan with lots of raw foods. 1-2 times per week I have a cheat meal and that is a hard and fast limit. Whatever it was that got me through the fast without cheating, I'm using it now to stick to my limit on those "cheats." It is non-negotiable. Period. Sometimes I think of a quote I read from Cher: Instant gratification is for babies. Sometimes I just remove myself from the tempting situation, or I totally ignore it. Whole meals can pass and I don't know what the other people ate. However I am starting to see that WHEN I choose to eat my cheat meals has an affect on others. People around me who are inspired by my weight loss have started choosing healthier options when I'm with them - but only when I also choose healthy. If I choose to cheat while among them, it's almost like a permission slip for them to revert. That's tough on me. Having total freedom about when I choose to cheat is a big part of my sticking to it. Now I have to reconsider my approach. Will I put more restrictions on myself in order to encourage others? That's what I'm considering this week.

    Hello there,



    I am new to the group and starting a guided 60 day reboot next week. Nervous if I can do it. I want to reverse diabetes. I am glad to have found this group as I think I need the positive motivation of others, looking forward to hearing about your challenges and successes.

    Keep posting as you progress even if you experience a set back. Life happens, I'll keep cheering you on!

    Michelle, you have come to the right spot. You'll find support and lots of great information here! In the end, it will come down to you. Stay motivated and determined and you will succeed. How to stay motivated? Read lots of books and watch lots of movies about food. They keep the information on your mind and give you new reasons to stick to it. How to stay determined? If you slip, get back up. Don't let a slip turn into a landslide. And second, when feeling weak try this phrase which another poster here shared: "I love myself enough to stick to my plan."

    It's been 3 years since I've watched Joe's first movie. I watched a number of other shows like Forks over Knives, etc. I've successfully done a 10 day fast and lost 13 lbs. But in the end, I couldn't stick with it and i ended up gaining weight. I now need to lose 100 lbs at least.



    I've since watched other shows which reinforced the same themes. I'm convinced that animal protein, i.e. meat of any kind and diary is detrimental to human health. So i'm reinstated a plant strong vegan life style with the goal of never eating animal products again. I started on 6/21/2017 and i'm feeling better each day. I'm not exactly juicing, even though I have a high end cold press juicer. Instead I'm making smoothies. I don't feel as bad about discarding all the fiber from juicing and I'm more confident about capturing all the nutrition that's locked into hard to juice items like kale and spinach. I'm also able to take advantage of other nutritional sources like citrus peels. I throw a whole lemon peels and all into the smoothie. I hope not truly juicing isn't taboo in this community.

    All are welcome, juicing or not. This is about gaining knowledge, sharing knowledge, re-gaining health, and supporting each other. I am also trying to transition to vegan. I take it one day at a time right now because I do fail, but I keep that overall goal strong in my mind and do not let a slip turn into a tumble. Keep posting, and good luck!

    Hey guys! How are things? I am sorry I haven't posted for a few weeks, but I had 8 midterm exams to prepare for and... only 2 more to go. It was a lot of work, but almost at the end of that... then there's August finals. I am not thinking about that right now.



    I am still weighing in at about 218 lbs. I have gained about 2 lbs. over the past few weeks because I succumbed to eating potato chips. Everything else was great, but I have been drinking some wine on the weekends and potato chips during some intense study sessions. It's not good at all because I barely eat/drink anything during the day and sometimes skip dinner completely because I feel I have to much material to cover and don't take the time out to cook something and I refuse to eat out. When I do eat, it is a very healthy meal with a good balance of protein and veggies, it just hasn't been consistent enough.



    I seem to do really well with breakfast. I have a smoothie or some steel oats with fresh berries and maple syrup, but I barely ever eat lunch and then when it comes to dinner, it's a hit and miss.



    So there's some good things and some bad things. I know in August I will definitely get back on track, but I really have to try NOT to eat potato chips and eat regularly. I know that once I get back on track the weight will just fly off.



    I hope you all have been progressing well.

    I hear you! Life is a juggling act. Maybe try making a batch of grab-and-go smoothies? They keep for several days. I am trying to cut down on fruit and have found some good plant-based protein smoothie recipes that use things such as hemp hearts and flax. Keep at it, SnT! Fuel that brain :)

    morning everyone.



    As you can tell I'm 370lbs and miserable.



    Today is day one of juicing and I'm determined to get it right this time. I know it's going to be hard but I have a target. 100 days! 65 days just juice. 35 days juice and a simple salad and fruit.



    I'd love to initially lose 100lbs. I haven't been that small in years so that's my goal.



    I live in England in a place called Milton Keynes. Not a great deal of support here for me. In fact a few think I'm crazy.



    I'd love to get a few people I can message directly to help each other along their journeys? Who knows maybe meet up with our slim versions of each other in the future?



    Thanks all.

    Hi David and welcome! How did it go this past week?

    You're kidding! I knew a couple who lived in Milton Keynes years ago. I'm new too and at pretty much the same weight. Welcome! Hope the 2 weeks you've been juicing have been successful! Once we reach our goals it'd be fun to organize a group meet up.

    Hello Healthy Friends, what is everyone up to? I am mainly posting in the Reboot Finished, Now What reboot group, and enjoying learning how to maintain my 80 plus pound weight loss. I have been studying tips for successfully maintaining weight loss, and found one interesting one I wanted to share with my friends: research indicates a hidden factor of weight gain is a Tired and Toxic Liver. I was shocked to learn that the liver has 500 different jobs, and that it functions as a filter cleansing our system of toxins, metabolizes fats/proteins/carbohydrates, control hormonal balance, and produce immune boosting factors. Many of these functions have a direct bearing on my weight loss and weight maintenance efforts. I always suspected that I had fatty liver disease, and did not understand how I got it because I do not drink alcohol. Then I learned that the liver converts fructose into triglycerides, which can eventually turn into another source of excess body fat and lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. I was eating too much sugar, especially fructose. CHANGE #1: I no longer eat any sugar, except for an occasional manduka honey spoonful in my tea when I feel a sore throat coming on.



    My number one detoxifying drink is 1 ounce of organic unsweetened cranberry juice in 7 ounces of water. Cran-Water is a potent source of phytonutrients such as anthocyanins, catechins, luteins, and quercetin. They all supply nutritional support and co-factors for the liver's detox pathways. These nutrients also seem to help digest fatty globules in the lymph reducing my cellulite deposits. Yippeeeeee. I started using dandelion root, milk thistle, turmeric and Oregon grape root during my reboot, and have continued with these lipotropic substances because I have noticed that they continue to decrease the fat storage rate in liver cells (according to my blood work) and accelerate fat metabolism. I am excited to say that I have successfully eliminated caffeine, sugar, alcohol, yeast based foods, trans fat, margarine, vegetable shortening, and commercial vegetable oils like canola oil. These food items can seriously disrupt liver function by clogging the detox pathways or increase candida production. The yeast related poison acetaldehyde is extremely toxic to the liver and inhibits fat burning. It is definitely worth it to avoid any type of yeast infection. Studying the liver has helped me maintain my weight loss, and has improved my overall health. I hope this information is helpful to others too. Juice On Friends........

    Thanks, RM! Do you juice the cranberries or where are you finding unsweetened cranberry juice? Also, how do you use these: dandelion root, milk thistle, turmeric and Oregon grape root?

    What can I say, the "impossible " dream is getting closer. The more I do this, the more I want to do this more. To quote a Taylor Swift song, "This is getting good now". Maddog, you are doing fantastic!
