    @DanMiller

    My juices are mostly veggie. I am following the 'rainbow' on the 3 day reboot.

    I find drinking too much water just makes me feel sick. Its just more liquid on top of the juices, and I don't want to vomit up any of the juices I have consumed.

    Regarding the hunger, I am feeling hungry a lot and find myself wanting to eat 'regular' food.

    Ben101- cut back on your water if you want, but increase your juices......sip on some throughout the day to replace chewing. If you want to chew....eat a carrot, or chew some gum. When in doubt more veggie juice. once you get over this hump the hunger should ease. Overcome cravings and food addictions with veggie juice. Check out the video by Doug Lisle posted on my wall at: http://community.rebootwithjoe.com/profile/danmill...

    It may take your mind off the hunger and food cravings while watching it.....:)

    Hi Ben101, Separating your water and juices can be helpful when preventing you from feeling sick. Drink your juices at meal/ snack times according to the schedule and water in between. About 64 oz of extra water/ other fluids like herbal tea and coconut water. Hope this helps! Isabel - Reboot Coach

    Hi

    Quantity question. In a number of the recipes the recipe calls for 16 leaves of Kale.

    Question is big or small as don't want to over due it but just asking to get some sort of clarification on the size as the leaves vary from variety to variety.

    Also since talking quantities you might want to have a look at the reboot shopping guide issued a few days ago as the shopping list doesn't match up with the recipes in a few cases. Good example is the shopping guide says 3 oranges but the sunrise juice recipe calls for 4 oranges, beets was another shoping guide says 3 beets but only the sunrise recipe has them and it says only needs 2 so you might want to have someone just update so the shopping list and recipes all match up in case you reuse the basic guide for other reboots.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    Thats a good question! I would have to say just your average normal sized kale leaf, but it just depends what you have access to and what you can find in your grocery store.

    Thanks for letting me know, I will pass the message onto the team now.

    All the best with your Big New Year Reboot!

    Josie @ Team Reboot.

    I had the same question as I can only get large curly leaf kale here and 16 leaves of that would be 2 -3 large bunches! I am thinking 1 to 2 ratio maybe?

    Hi Libby,

    Are you signing in with one of the social options? (fb, google, twitter) We have seen a couple of similar reports. Try signing in to the website with your email address - that may resolve the issue for you.

    Let me know if that works/helps.

    I can't get to the tracker either. It continiously takes me back to sign in. I've tried signing in with fb, and when I try to sign in (at all on this site) with just my email and password it tells me: "Username and password do not match"....

  • WJS

    Same here, sign in with email and fill in the tracker info and then there is no where to click to register the filled in information and then end up having to close the tracker window.

    libbymac68: When clicking on the Tracker for the first time, you must re-log-in to activate it. The next time you click on it, you should be taken to the right place.

    I've read about the dirty dozen of conventionally grown fruits/veggies. Sometimes it is difficult, to come accross organically grown ingredients from the "dirty dozen" list, especially in North East US during the winter months. I see that there is a recipe for a veggie spray wash on the site. I would venture to guess that firm fruits/veggies such as apples and cucumbers would get sprayed and then scrubbed with a veggie brush, correct? How do you properly clean leafy veggies such as kale, or soft fruit such as berries to get as much of the pesticides off prior to juicing? Would you simply spray them and then rinse under water, or do you spay and let them sit a while before rinsing?

    Ulitmately I just want to make sure that when my only option is conventionally grown fruits/veg, that I am getting them as "clean" as possible before juicing them.

    Thanks for your time.

  • DanMiller BettyRae

    Ed Baxter - I soak my veggies in a sinkful of 1 cup vinegar/ full sink of water and let soak for about 10 minutes. I also peel things like cucumber. I also fully scrub the beets, carrots, etc...after soaking.

  • Ed Baxter

    That's exactly the type of advice I was looking for. Glad to hear that I can peel the cucumbers, there is a large amount of wax on them which I would think would trap the pesticides.

    Thanks for your help Dan, much appreciated.

  • Isabel Smith

    Hi Ed Baxter, Great question! Locally grown (small farmers, farmers markets) generally have less pesticides than conventionally grown and can be a good and cheaper sub for organic. To clean the vegetables and fruits you can make a 1:1 water to white vinegar solution that can be used in a spray bottle or as a soak for the produce. Don't leave it soaking for long because some nutrients can leach out but washing them in this can be a good way to clean! Hope this helps! Isabel - Reboot Coach

    Hello coaches, I am a type 2 diabetic, this my first time in any group, have you had any success with diabetics?

  • Josie

  • Isabel Smith

    5 years ago
    Hi Jean, Josies is right definitely contact your doctor if you take insulin that may need to be matched to the amount of carbohydrates you're having. I've coached many type 2 diabetics through guided reboots and many have had great success. The key is choosing juices with mostly vegetable, drinking 4-6 times per day (follow the schedule) and drinking plenty of water- at least 64 oz. The posts Josie linked are great too! Hope this helps!

    Thank you Josie, I will look into all of them. Very excited but also worried at the same time.

  • Brightnhappy

    Thankyou Josiee and Dan for answering me. 2 more questions pls

    1 I tried the vege stock powder in a cup of hot water about a teaspoon full oh my gosh it tasted sooooo good but then I worried its salty so am I not allowed to have it ? ( potentially throwing two year old tantrum while waiting for answer)?

    2what veggies give me the most potassium pls ? Thankyou

  • DanMiller BettyRae

    5 years ago

    Brightnhappy - how about consider making a broth with your leftover pulp (i juice my kale, carrot, celery, beet first and then reserve the pulp)....I simmer, for a little while - season with fresh herbs and strain. I have also made a puree with that pulpy gruel and used it in soups. This way you can control the seasonings you use and it can be pre-prepared and kept in the fridge.

    I would like to know if it is normal not to have a bowel movement. I started juicing and this is day 6 for me. My other question is it normal to put 5 pounds on by the end of the day and be gone the next. I don't understand why it jumps through out the day.

  • Gaetano B

    Cindy I noticed the weight fluctuations when I weighed myself many times throughout the day. The best way Renee & I found was to weigh ourselves first thing in the morning nearly naked and after using the toilet. Then not weighing again until the next day in the same fashion. You can drive yourself nuts weighing too many times throughout the day. Keep it simple. Be encouraged..

  • DanMiller BettyRae

    5 years ago

    Gaetano has one on me Cindy -- I did not weigh in but once a month to avoid disillusionment and the up/down roller coaster of the body beginning to heal itself.

    Depending on your state when you began (whether you weened off certain foods and incorporated more veg) you could be a little stopped up. http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/faq-what-about-constipation/

    More often than not you should be in the toilet quite a bit, but when not consuming solid food - bowels may be taking a bit of a break along with digestion. http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/eating/health-conditions/

    When in doubt more veggie juice and plenty of water - as much as you can comfortably consume.

    Consider this link to aid you in discovering that your body will have a mind of its own when undertaking a healing regiment like a Veggie Juice Reboot: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/7-ways-to-break-throu...

    Being an engineer, I appreciated the data & ability to analyze it. But quickly learned more than once a day can drive u nuts.... Like u said Dan there are still ups & downs, even limiting it to daily. & Dan u still did it more often than one person we helped... He actually never weighed himself... He just looked at himself & noted how his clothes fit... Weight itself was not a measure for him.

  • Isabel Smith

    5 years ago
    hi Cindy It's totally normal not to have a bowel movement for the first few days. However, it's better that you do! You can try Senna tea that usually helps. Are you drinking coconut water and enough fluids (an extra 64 oz water, hot water, broth, coconut water) ? You've made a major change in your eating/drinking patterns and that can cause constipation. Another thing to expect is smaller bowel movements because what you're drinking doesn't have my bulk in terms of fiber. About the 5 lbs flux in one day is very normal for most people. You should always weigh yourself in the morning first thing because that's the most accurate. Generally it he gain comes from eating/drinking and water shifts. Hope this helps! Isabel - Reboot Coach

  • DanMiller BettyRae

    5 years ago

    Helen:

    check out the following links to assist with food transition. I personally do not suggest any animal products (no meats,dairy/eggs) after a reboot. Stick to light foods, whole grains and whole fruits and vegetables (cooked or raw).

    Feel free to join the Juicing & Plant-Based Support Group to help you transition and maintain weight loss. http://community.rebootwithjoe.com/groups/view/cod...

    I continued and maintained 145 pound weight loss with daily juicing for daytime and eating one meal in the evening with my family. This is a Reboot with Food plan. For more details, click on my name to review my profile story.

    Also another additional question in the 5 day reboot plan it was mentined to drink coconut water but I drank water instead so was it compulsory to drink coconut water and if so which brand would you suggest as getting fresh coconut water from the tree is impossible where I live

  • Rachel Gargano

    5 years ago

    Hello Helen!

    We recommend purchasing unsweetened, unflavored coconut water. There are many brands that meet this guideline, so feel free to get the one that is available near where you live.

    Rachel -- Reboot Coach

  • Gaetano B

    We make sure it is pure Coconut water as many brands have added ingredients. We always read the labels.. & anything added we don't get it...

    When I re-read my post I realized I should clarify "we" as being Renee, my wife, & I....
