Real ChangePosted by JulieLiz on 2 years ago
I'm a new community member and I will be starting my reboot at the beginning of April. I have two goals: I want to lose about 50lbs and I want to transition to a plant-based lifestyle for good. I've made drastic changes in the past only to get overwhelmed and behind on the planning/prep and I end up right back where I started or worse. Since discovering Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, I've made a decision not to jump right in right away. That has never worked before. Ovet the past few weeks, I've watched both films and happened to find a great second-hand juicer. I've tried some of the juicing recipes and now I'm looking at planning for my reboot.
I would like to do a 15-day 5-5-5 reboot and repeat it until I reach my goal and then transition to a primarily plant-based lifestyle after that. I think going back and forth between juicing/eating and just juicing will help me a lot. My weaknesses are planning and preparation. I've looked at the 5-5-5 reboot and everything looks great but I think for me it needs to be even simpler. I don't need a lot of variety and I need to control costs. I'm looking for advice on the best two or three juice recipes to work with and maybe some recipes on the eating days. I've learned from experience that going out and buying a whole bunch of different ingredients for a ton of recipes that are all very different results in me getting overwhlemed, feeling defeated and wasting a bunch of stuff that I just don't end up using in time before it goes bad.
I need simple recipes with similar ingredients so I can control costs and come up with a plan that works for me. In order to stay ahead of things I plan to prepare my fruits and veggies a few days in advance and juice what I need in the evenings for the following day. Same for the food recipes. The key is to keep things simple so I don't have to make too many decisions lol. Advice on what has worked for you would be really helpful.
I've tried SO MANY plans in the past but I'm hopeful about the reboot. This is the first time I have joined a community for help and support. I'm looking forward to reading your stories and your advice.
