Finding juicing hard to do not only because there are other people in my home but because of the cost and taste. Any recommendations?

    In the beginning it is harder because 1) you are hungrier-your stomach hasn't shrunk yet so you are drinking more to keep you feeling full

    2) your taste buds haven't changed yet and

    3) your sense of smell is stronger.

    My best advice is to find a good drink combination that you like (it doesn't have to be a specific recipe from this website or ANY website) and drink those for a while. If they are fruit heavy, that's okay for right now. Your taste buds will change, so with each day, just add a little more vegetable. But please, don't drink something you don't like just because it's on a plan. Drink something you enjoy so that you stay with this and actually change your life.

    Also, again, you do not have to go by any specific recipe. Do go to the store and buy some fruits and veggies that are on sale. Rey making something good with that. When we started our reboot (both my husband and I), we were a family of 5 (plus 2 dogs and 2 cats) on one income. I totally understand needing to budget, so base your juices around the produce that's on sale.

    Your stomach will shrink very soon and you will actually start to find it hard to drink all of the juices. If you are still hungry, go make more juice. You can have as much juice as you want so if you are hungry, go make another juice or drink some water. You don't want to deprive yourself or that will just make the weight loss that much harder.

    And I don't have much advice for the part about being around people. During the first few days of your reboot, it just plain stinks having to be around most people. Lol! I feel your pain!

    Hang in there, girl!!! It'll be one of the hardest things you make the decision to go though, but it'll also be the most rewarding!

    Stay strong and juice on!

    Definitely look for local markets to buy your produce. Everything is much higher in the chain stores. I buy tomatoes for .79/lb at the local market as opposed to 2.49 to $2.99 at the local Publix, and others. Cucumbers are 3 for $1.00 etc.

    Try to find recipes you like. Fortunately for me I already love vegetables but if some of these are new. Try using things like spinach, apple and 1 celery and 1 cucumber. This should be pretty good and mild.

    Also be aware that something as simple ad 4 apples, 2 or 3 kale leaves, and half a peeled lemon or orange is pretty simple. Can't even taste the kale. I wash and half the apples, wash the kale, and peel the 1/2 lemon. I juice the apple skins and seeds. Normally when I eat an apple I eat the core and seeds anyway. They certainly don't show up when juicing.

    Hold back on the vegetable that you don't like. Use smaller quantities of it until you are acclimated.

    Cooking for the rest of the family is something that is just a mind set. I eat out with neighbors and friends without eating what they are having. I cook for my wife and make her things everyday that I can't have. It's just a mind set. It's only hard if you think it will be hard.

    Just finished my apple, carrot, beet. Yum.

    Do you like V8 juice. Try making a juice that mimics that. I make one with Tomatoes, Cucumber, Celery, Green Pepper, Kale or spinach.

    Please help. I have a Ninja which emulsifies all pulp from the vegetables and fruits I add according to recipe. What I then get is more like a slushy instead of a juice and I'm having to use a spoon to get it down. Does anyone have any suggestions?
