My name is Dan (5'11" - 52 yr old) and I joined the reboot network on 7-24-2011 after watching Joe's Documentary. I weighed 289 pounds. I immediately went and bought a Breville Juicer (the BEST brand) and I did a 10 day vegetable juicing fast. I only drank pitchers of fresh juice (and water)for 10 days - as much as I wanted, to jumpstart my program. Everyday I made/make a juice of approx: 2 pounds Carrots, 1/2 bunch Celery, 1 big cucumber, 3 leaves Kale, 1/4 Beet, 1 green apple and a knob of ginger. During the reboot juice fasting period I only had veggie juice, all day everyday no solid food. The all you can drink nutrition packed vegetable juice keeps you feeling full and energized and allows your digestive tract to balance. I instantly started feeling better - through a juice fast! I instantly dropped 10 pounds which motivated me to continue. After the juice only period, I thought, "I can do this." I tried another month of daily juicing, during that month, I ate 1 daily meal of solid food like salad or steamed veggies.
I lost 20 pounds that first 6 weeks. I continued daily juicing through Christmas 2011/New Year 2012. I would just drink veggie juice all day replacing breakfast, lunch, snack. I ate 1 solid meal in the evening with healthy stuff like beans, veggie stews, big salads. I totally stopped eating sugar, sweets, breads, chips, soda, coffee, booze and cut big meat portions but stick to smaller portions of chicken, turkey, fish. By March of 2012 I had lost a total of 55 pounds with daily juicing and 1 solid 'healthy' meal per day. Ask me - I did NOT feel hungry, no low energy and no cravings for crappy food or solid food. Within months of juicing I instantly stopped falling asleep in mid-conversation, I stopped having sleep apnea and my skin rash went away, my circulation and metabolism improved and I was able to start some simple exercise. When you watch the documentary you can see how easy it is to incorporate the lifestyle. I (We-my wife too) just always have a thermos of fresh juice available to consume on a daily basis. At least 2-3 16oz glasses per day for me....one 16 oz glass per day for my wife.
With new found energy and the ability to bend down and tie my shoes, now I always ask my wife to give me jobs or duties or heavy lifting stuff, which I used to avoid. I have continued to loose weight every month (without excessive exercise) and average about 10 pounds per month. However, now I still only eat healthy solid food at dinner and have a mid-day snack of carrots n nuts or a piece of fruit, everything else I consume is water and my veggie juice. I make one pitcher of juice per day and sip it in 16oz portions throughout the day. I did not eat breakfast, but I do have a fresh fruit serving in the morning, no lunch but I sip on juice. Both my wife & I are starting to notice that there is not much fat left (only about 25 pounds in my belly) and with the daily exercise and continued juicing, my skin is starting to tighten and tone a bit more as opposed to loosing excess fat. I figure another 3-4 months and I will reach my new goal weight of 190lbs for my 5'11" 52-year old frame. My original goal back in summer 2011 was to lose 50 pounds, but that came off relatively easy with juicing in about 6-7 months, so I upped the anti in April and set a goal for another 50 pounds. The weight has really fallen off quickly and systematically in the 1-1/2 year since considering weight loss, but came off faster when I started daily reboot juicing. I adjusted my lifestyle, but the changes fit into our existing lifestyle. Ya know how people carry around their Starbucks coffee drinks?, Now my cup is filled with fresh veggie juice instead of a MochalattaChocolattaCalories. I am always carrying and sipping on something in a 16oz thermo glass - something veggie-juicy good.
March 2011 I was 51 years old and 325 lbs of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. November 2013 I am 53 (54 in a couple months!) years old and weigh 193 lbs - a total weight loss of 145 pounds!
