Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by mdelcastillo on 6 years ago Hi, I am on Day 4 now i am felling hungry and do no t know what to do. I workout pretty intense with carido and weights as well. I drink plenty of water throughout the day. Can I have a salad with grabanzo beans for lunhc or dinner? What kind of dressing can I use? Also by eating nuts during the juice fast will that cause any effects? Thank you

    Hi mdelcastillo - yes feel free to add in a healthy meal especially given your intense exercise - this is like our Juice Until Dinner plan which is very successfull for many people. Supplementing with other plant foods - either whole veggies, fruits or beans and nuts makes it a modified reboot or fast but that is not necessarily a bad thing. With just juice you would want to temper your exercise intensity -- you could start by adding in more juice; you may not be drinking enough and following the tips here but if you choose to add the salad with nuts and beans that is certainly OK, just different from a 100% juice fast. http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/fitness-facts-for-your-reboot/

    I am on day 19 of my 60 juice reboot comprised of about 70/30 ratio of fruit to veggies, 70% veggies, but I have been eating a small amount of a seed and nut mixture containing some unsweetened currants, almonds, pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, cashews, golden raisins, and dried cranberries, 80 percent nuts 20 percent fruits. Is this ok? I eat a few small handfuls a day generally between juices and with a lot of water, I chew them into a paste first before swallowing. Can you give me your opinion please?

    Dear MarkESackett, We do not really recommend eating nuts and seeds if you want to complete a full reboot - a better suggestion is consuming whole fruits and vegetables fresh. Including nuts and seeds is perfectly fine to do if this suits you.

    Claire, please check Stacy Kennedy's reply (above) who seems to contradict what you just said.

    I have answered a different person with different questions. Stacy was referring to intense exercise with this suggestion.

    I just joined and I received an email from Joe / Staff that had this in it about eating nuts and seeds.. he even stated it in the film also that he was eating nuts, and seeds if I'm correct.. I could be wrong. LOL Here is part of the Email he sent when I joined a few mins ago.

    Hi Duane!

    Welcome to www.RebootwithJoe.com. I hope you’re ready to learn more about the power of juicing and are excited to Reboot Your Life. Most likely, you learned of this site after watching my film Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. This site was created to take the message of the film and offer anyone a plan of action to get on the path to better health, and to provide a community to support you every step of the way.

    A little about me: around 6 years ago, I was 100lbs (45kgs) overweight. I was taking medication night and day. I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. My blood work wasn’t great… some things were in the normal range but most were either too high or too low. Basically, I was a mess.

    When I turned 40, I looked in the mirror and I said enough is enough. I decided to take matters into my own hands. There was no magic pill to cure me so I thought “what would happen if I radically changed my diet?” I had done juice fasts (aka Reboots) before with success so I thought what if I only drank fruits and vegetables of 60 days? What would that do to my health? What if I only consumed plant food….vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, legumes and seeds? Would I be able to get off my medication?

    Can you please suggest a way that I can get some protein in my juicing diet if I'm to do a complete boost? I'd really appreciate any help / suggestions! Thank you!

    I am on Day 49 Been on the reboot and both my feet and ankles started to feel itchy and I purchased calamine lotion to stop the skin irritation. Slowed it down but didn't really help much. Two days ago, I listened to my body and I decided to transition to solid foods for two days. As it turned out the itching stopped and I have not experienced any skin irritation so far. I plan to return back to reboot after this clears up. I am just wondering if anyone you may know of has had similar experiences of skin irritations on both feet's and ankles? Thank you! Leimomi

    I believe that the itching is caused by parasites- try using gaia brand cloves, or thieves essential oil. rub this all over the area's that are itching. if you go to youtube.com type in Jimmy Miller parasites- he has a lot of VERY informative videos on this issue. if you combine that with food grade diatomaceous earth and zeolite along with ingest a few drops of your oil I think you will find this helps a great deal. I wish you well on your journey to get healthy! :)

    To juice only,

    Its only juice no blends but in saying this you are still officially rebooting,

    Reboot Juice and Eating program - wholefoods and juices

    Reboot Juice only - only juices without wholefoods
