Group Reboots

Posted by Kel_H on 5 years ago

Hi All,

I'm Kel, 36 & from the UK, I watched Joe's programme & was amazed by the results.

I have tried most well known diets & dieted for as long as I can remember.

I have made the first step & ordered my Phillips juicer & will be starting after the new year.

Do I need to buy the rebooting book or do you use the recipes from here?

How long did you all reboot for & what was your results?

Any advice is welcome.

Looking forward to getting to know you :0)

    Hi Kel!

    First off, congrats on making the decision to start juicing! If you are anything like me, I've struggled with my weight for a very long time. Juicing has been a part of my daily life since February of this year and I am so grateful to Joe and his movie because it really helped change my entire life.

    You do not NEED to buy anything other than your juicer and the fruits and vegetables to put in it. There are a ton of recipes floating around the internet. I've bought quite a few different juicing books and honestly for the most part, I either make the juices up myself, I find the recipes on the internet, or I get recipes from fellow juicers.

    I started my first reboot in February 2013 and I went on nothing but fresh juice for 40 days. The results were AMAZING. I lost just over 25 lbs and I wish I had taken measurements because I dropped inches like crazy. I went from wearing a size 18 to a 12. I had far more energy than I've had in a very long time, I felt and looked younger, my skin was flawless and my hair was shinier and stronger. I struggle with clinical depression and with an anxiety disorder but after about 2 weeks on nothing but juice, I felt euphoric. I went from running to foods as comfort, to actually starting to RUN and exercise as forms of coping. I broke a lot of addictions I had to unhealthy foods. It literally changed my life.

    I have a blog, if you want to go check it out. This is my photo and weight log for my first reboot, which to date, has been my longest one.

    I wish you the very best of luck! Stay strong and juice on!

    Hi Kel! Congrats on joining in!

    I'm waiting for my juicer, but will be starting on Jan 1. Will get me through the first rough days before returning to work on the 6th.

    One thing I plan on is experimenting with herbs and spices. If you know how to cook, you can come up with juice equivalents for regular cuisines. For Italian cuisine, for example, try going heavy on the tomatoes, spinach, zucchini (you Brits call it by the French or Italian name...don't recall), etc. Use fresh basil and garlic, and you can also use oregano, chilies, ground thyme, etc. I'm not sure how well the ground spices will integrate into the juice, or whether they will just remain gritty and hard to swallow.

    If you are going heavy on the kale, I'm not sure any amount of herbs and spices will overpower the flavor, but I intend to experiment.

    There are lots of recipes around this site and on others linked from here, so if you don't know how to cook very well, just follow what those call for.

    Good luck!

    try pineapple for the bitterness of kale. It works wonders. ;)

    5 years ago have made a wise choice you can experiment and see what combinations you like as far as fruit&veggies first reboot was 28 days long resulting in a 20 lb I'm going to start a new one in a couple days....I can tell you that my experience was a little challenging the first 4-5 days due to detox headaches and food did get easier after that. .Also you might experience some cold chills due to any lack of iron...remember to take 1 day at a time!!

    Yay for you! Wonderful decision to join the juicing lifestyle!

    I did a 60 day reboot last Jan-Feb and lost 63 pounds, felt amazing, no more achy joints, skin glowed, and it left me with a desire for healthy, natural foods.

    I used the recipes on this site and those that other site members suggested. I stayed mostly with Joe's Mean Green because I like it, but broth made from the left over pulp, and warm tomato/pepper/carrot juice satisfied my "comfort food" desires. Because I wanted to lose weight I made sure to stay with the 80/20 recipes, 80% veggies and 20% fruits in my juices - also made sure to drink plenty of water in addition to the juices, at least as many oz of water as I was getting in my juice.

    Welcome, and I look forward to hearing about your journey!

    I have found that just reading all the posts have really kept me going! Thejuiceathomemom, danno17314, and Apple-a-day, wow!! Congrats on your achievements. Ps: lemon also cuts the bitter kale taste. Good luck to everyone:)

    Congrats and I also find that reading the posts, checking out the recipees, and especially looking at some of the videos suggested is a huge help. Once I got past the first three days of my Juice Only fast, it was much easier than I thought. Going to be doing another starting on the 6th with Joe and many others.

    I lost about 25 lbs in 30 days but that was after I'd just lost 30 lbs so I was very happy with it. Also that doesn't even mention how much better I felt. Fewer aches, pains and a better mental attitude.

    You will be surprised at how much fun this is and how enjoyable it is.

    Enjoy the journey and keep a diary. I keep a diary just for life in general and to record my life especially my little peeps but I have found it especially useful in doing a fast. I also suggest watching Forks Over Knives on netflix for reinforcement. All the best to you, Ben
