Free for All

Posted by cantlivelikethis on 9 months ago

Hi. I just saw the documentary and figured I'd like to give it a shot, because I'm at the end of my rope. My doctor says she doesn't care how I do it, but that I need to lose a lot of weight and sooner rather than later. I'm a little over 100 lbs overweight (at 5'6"), I take meds for high blood pressure, I use a bipap for sleep apnea, I have a fatty liver, and I'm only 35.

I already have anxiety, which leads to depression, which is most easily temporarily fixed with horrible food. When I'm active, I'm much less anxious, but it's hard to be active when you're this heavy. Here's the kicker: I'm on Coumadin, so I can't consume a ton of vitamin K and I have to eat a consistent amount every week (they told me the super vitamin K foods like kale definitely be avoided).


I don't know the first thing about juicers to buy, what kinds of mixtures I need to be drinking daily, how often, when, or any of that. It seems very daunting - but I'm going to try because this might be my last hurrah. I can't keep going on waiting for a heart attack, or feeling like a fat slug, or with all the constant aches and pains all over my body that only came on after I gained weight.


So any advice or input would be very appreciated. I'm going to do some research on here and I'm absolutely willing and able to do a 60 day trial with this because it really feels like the last bullet in the chamber and I need to make something happen.

    I don't have any great words of wisdom but being on a blood thinner could be problematic. My Dad was on one and they said they would work his meds around his diet so eat how he pleased but he had to keep them informed. I am hoping you have talked to your doctor about this?

    I'm brand new here and admittedly scared to try. I've been going on some self examinations sprees lately and not really sure I like the answers. Avoiding ourselves sure seems easier! :) It's the unknown that scares me. All the questions we can't answer..... all the... what if's of the tomorrows and how we will have to change. But, I think not worrying about tomorrow may be something I need to work harder at.

    That being said, I don't know if you are going to try to jump in with both feet and do a full reboot but, for me, I think I'm going to try with 1 meal replacement per day. I'm just not sure how often the people that do this have a glass of juice. 3 times a day? 5? 10? But I'm going to start with having it for breakfast and go from there. Perhaps slowly moving into this would be a good start for you too? Would certainly give you doctors the ability to monitor your blood levels more often and adjust medication as needed.

    I'm sure there are recipes that minimize some of the leafy greens but I have yet to look thru many myself.

    I hear your pain on the overweight and feeling hopeless. However, GOOD FOR YOU! Even if you had to have a doctor tell you to do it, you are going to give it a try. You are doing something! I loved the part in the video where he said if you start juicing program and stop after 3 days...… good for you! Not 'oh I failed'. No, 3 days is great and positive. And you know what? We can get up and give it another try. Don't wait until you are my age. I've carried this weight for 20 years now and I have been miserable about it.

    Hang in there and best of everything for you!

    I just started my 15 day reboot (7 days in) following Joe's book religiously. My method is to be super disciplined to something provided and keep my eye focused down the road towards health to stay encouraged. It's not that hard, actually. He makes it pretty easy on anyone. My body is so grateful to me it is hugging me every day.

    Hi Nattee, It’s “Reboot with Joe”. $12 on Amazon. It has plans (5,10,15,30 etc) and shopping lists and recipes. Makes it really simple. Good luck.
