Height and Juice

Posted by Terri456 on 9 months ago

I am a female and under 5' tall. Should I be drinking the same juices and amounts as Joe puts in his book? I want to lose about 20-30 pounds. Also, I have had 1/2 my thyroid removed, but I am not on medication as my endo says my other 1/2 of my thyroid is producing enough. I eat very healthy and am gluten free (ok I like chocolate sometimes :) ) but I have gained weight since having 1/2 my thyroid removed. I don't want to ask my doctor because she says this my "new normal" . I don't want to believe that and I think juicing will help me. Also, I know I need to exercise more. I am just not clear if height has anything to do with how much juice intake I should be drinking. Thank you!

    Hello Terri 456,

    We have a thyroid reboot starting on the 26th September where I will be the coach! THis is a 25 day juicing program and 35 days eating and juicing to regain your health and support thyroid function.

    Yes you need less juice if you are smaller in statue. Aim for 4 juices each being 16-20 oz per juice and this again in extra fluids such as broth, water, herbal tea and coconut water to keep you hydrated!

    Please let me know if you have any further questions!

    Thank you for your response! I have been juice fasting for 3 days using Joe's 5 day reboot in his book. The dessert juices seem a little much for me and I don't think I am losing any weight. The first 2 days were detox but today I feel a little better and my headache is gone. I was eating a pretty good before the fast so I wasn't sure what to expect. I will scale down the amount of juice I am drinking and check out the thyroid reboot. Thanks again!
