    Love the reboot! At the current weight loss rate, I am concerned about my skin's elasticity. Is there any way to help my skin recover as I lose weight?

    Joy,

    While I'm not an expert on this area particularly, I do have a couple suggestions that may help.

    Studies have shown that eating too many refined carbohydrates and sugars can break down the elastin in the skin, causing wrinkles and 'looseness'. This is because the sugars stick to proteins and form sticky cells called advanced glycation end products (or AGEs for short!). However, once you stop eating as much refined carbs, these AGE products break back down and help restore elasticity in the skin.

    After you lose weight, (and during!) it can be very helpful to exercise - in particular doing resistance exercise, to provide tone. This will help give more shape for your skin to form around and can help prevent sagging.

    Best of luck! I wish I could give you more information, but I hope this was helpful!

    Thank you so much, Rachel! This helps a lot. I wasn't going to stop the Reboot/weight loss, so I just wanted to know that I'm doing all that I can achieve the best results. I will add in the resistance training and keep juicing! Blessings!

    Since I'm trying to eat more fruits and veggies now, I find I have a question. What is the best way to wash my fresh produce. Although I try to purchase mostly organics, there are still some items I can't find. I have always been concerned about residue that may still be on my produce as well as the waxy stuff that they put on things such as apples and cucumbers. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Faemaiden,

    We have a great spray you can make to wash conventionally grown produce to help rid them of external pesticides. Mix together 1 part water with 1 part white vinegar plus 2 teaspoons baking soda. Allow this to react (the baking soda will bubble!), then put the mixture in a spray bottle. You can spray your produce with it, rub it then rinse it.

    Cucumbers are a different story because of the wax coating. The best thing to do with them is the peel the outside to rid them of wax (or wash them with the above mixture then juice them... the wax will be taken out with the pulp!). Otherwise it is very difficult to get the wax off.

    I hope this helps!

    Again the site is not allowing me to post directly to a post by clicking comment so have to post here at the end.

    Rachel thank you for your reply to my post regarding melons. That is good news about them. I have read it a few times with my first reboot that they are not good to juice unless used alone. So if this isn't a problem that is excellent news, they would certainly provide a lot of volume!

    Hello. So I'm starting Day 5, have lost 9 pounds and am feeling great EXCEPT for the fact that I'm still VERY hungry. Stomach growling, gnawing hunger even one hour after a juice. I'm drinking water, five juices (~18 oz each), drinking broth etc. Will this improve soon? I was hoping it would be done by day 3 or 4.

    Hi everyone, I noticed a lot of people wanted to continue their Reboot to 15 days or more. Me too! I just started a new group for a 15-Day Reboot starting tomorrow, Saturday Jan. 10th. Come join me if you like! It would be great to offer each other support. :D

    I do not have a question, However I have a comment. For people that have had a Gastric bypass I highly suggest juicing. I had my Bypass in 2003 ,The down fall of this is not being able to absorb about 13% nutrients( no energy ) , juicing has been a life saver and its been only 5 days. I will be an advocate for juicing .

    Hi...I finished my five day plan on Friday. I feel great with the exception of me feeling sleepy, and a little weak. I didnt see anything on the website on what to do if this happens. I also started my day at 11am yesterday. I made sure that I only ate soup all yesterday. Today I drank one of the orange receipes this morning and drank water and coconut water and still no energy. What should I do?.

    Hi - I'm scheduled to start the 22 Jan Reboot and have not heard from a coach. I've written the rebootcoaching ID but have not received a reply. The schedule on this site indicates there is an Intro webinar today. Does anyone know how I get information for today's webinar? thank you!

    Hello, Rachel and other nutritionsts have recommended 1tsp of olive oil or coconut oil added to the juice in addition to the 1 scoop of Vega One protein powder. Is that 1tsp of oil a day or 1tsp per juice? thank you in advance.
