Day 60 lost 50 lbs

I am looking for good ppl who are dedicated to improving their health and life through juicing and natural healthy eating. Let's share information with each other our success, give advice when we have problem, even laugh and have fun! I Love people and seeing people become and transform their lives as I am!

This is my post from day 25 when I was sick and found heaven in MGJ!

OMG GUESS WHAT _ IM SO HAPPY! Oh let me tell you I was so tired today not feeling well. I wanted to eat chucky chicken hot soup to feel better. All day I was fighting the urge to eat it and the tuna wraps my husband made..mmmmm I was grouchy and miserable because I new one bit would kill the 25 days I have been juicing MGJ. So I decided to heat up my MGJ. When I took it ourt of the microwave, it smelt like kale harsh, so I was so worried it was gonna taste terrible. I took my spoon when it was cool enough to taste and in my mouth it went and my taste bugs went crazy because it was sooooo good and Hot and comforting. So happy I jumped all around the house telling my hubby its good, its sooo good hunny OMG ITS SO GOOD!!!!!!! I am so happy I could scream, laugh, cry because I needed this, Smooth, Comforting, and delicious Mean Green Juice! I haven't tried any other juices yet but I got to tell you its my fav juice, cold or beautifully hot omg Im always going to serve this at dinners later when I am eating food...yes its my fav and I am so grateful Joe and the way my life has changed. I could have had that processed food my hubby was eating, its not to bad but I dont want that, I want to be natural like this, so I cant wait to transition into soups, and the meatless dinners on this site , its going to be so good to eat food I LOVE , Feel so Fantastic and h=HEALTHY BABE so soso happy

ok today is day 25 lost 24lbs. yeah! I was a sick for a few days and today for me was hard and then wow just like the first time I tasted the MGJ ( mean green juice) I was so scared I wouldn't like it but I loved it, and I was thrilled!! I posted my first juicing experience, it's back on my first day if you want to read it on my profile. BTW sorry if I have typos but I am hurrying to go have Hot Mean Green Juice....Juice On For Life I love me and my new life and I hope you are tooo!!! Love you everyone! ox :)

This is a complete Lifestyle Change for me and I feel great! Let's be Healthy, Happy and abundant in a blissful life!

    Hi, you're doing incredibly well! I'm on day 42 but have only lost 20 pounds but I am happy with losing that much. I wouldn't heat up the juices though...one of the benefits is that it's raw, and one of the benefits of using a centrifugal juicer (which Joe recommends) is that it's fast enough not to heat up the juice and destroy some of the nurtients. After the fast I'm going to follow Dr Fuhrman's nutrition plant based diet, to keep it going :)

    Thank you for you advice on the heating up of juice. I do know that heating up my juice means I lose some of the nutrients but yes there are many things that destroy some the nutrients of the juice, but its a individual choice and it taste great! :)

    Maybe add another cold juice for each one that gets nuked in the microwave so that you get enough nutrients :)

    Thank you Jeninifer Yes, that ls very good advice. I only make it hot when I am not feeling well so that's not very often and will take your advice. :) You lost 20lbs in 40 days and that's great! I am so happy for you, I sure your feeling good about that and that's what's most important.

    You mentioned that you are going to do Dr Fuhrman's nutrition plant based diet when you complete your juicing. I don't know who that is. I would love to hear about this if you want to share it with me. :)

    ps I'm proud of you for your success so far and for looking out for me and everyone with good advice! thank you and look forward to both our successful journey to come! :)

    Thank you very much and you too! Dr Fuhrman was in Joe's movie and advocates a high nutrition, plant based diet for losing weight and allowing the body to heal itself. I have a couple of his books and this is his site http://www.drfuhrman.com/, I'm on this fast to help with my fibromyalgia, which it is doing. My weight loss has been really slow after the first couple of weeks but I've had little tastes here and there which I've stopped and found myself losing again...cooking dinner for my family is my greatest temptation time! I'm so relieved when it's out of the way and I've been cooking meals that I would really like to have myself. This is day 51 one for me know and I've lost 24 pounds, and you're right, I do look and feel a lot better for it :)

    Thank you Jennifer! Oh I know who you are taking about and yes, I am thinking about following his advice because he is all about lifestyle change for health, not just a diet. I have changed my lifestyle because I have acute Lupus and acute fibromyalgia. I want to tell you, I not sure what your life has been like with the fibromyalgia. but being I have lupus which makes everything I get 100x's worse like a cold , going to the dentist, or anything painful, so my fibromyalgia is on over drive. But I stay positive and do all I can to make each day as great and magical as I can.

    Day 51 of juicing lost 42.5 lbs. A long and very positive post here lol :)

    Its been an interesting journey for me since this is the first time in my life Ive done something like this dramatic. Ive had 51 days of juice with not one day of cheating, not even a taste of anything else, even with my Italian father eating all his take-out from the finest Italian restaurant in the city, asking me " Here, just taste, just one bite, it wont kill you, its soooooooo good", as he takes bite after bite with the delicious amazing aroma of Italian foods flowing through my nose.I find it totally amazing that I love the fact I can say no, enjoy the show and happily be satisfied enjoying juicing as much as he enjoys his Italian foods.

    I have to admit this has been different than anything Ive ever done in my life. Ive always loved food, all kinds of food. When I was younger, I could eat it all and have energy to go like a 5 year old. But something changed over the last few years. I'm 42 years old now and certain foods just put me down to sleep or make me sick in some way. Juicing changed that. I feel like I am 16 again. I have always loved shakes and juices and thank God I love both sweet and sour things because that's what the juice taste like to me. It been a pleasant transition with only a few uncomfortable side effects.

    Over the last 10 days of juicing its been much slower on losing weight. I thought I was going to lose like Joe did in his movie but I didn't. I see lots of people post about how easy it is for men to lose weight than women. I think its possible it could have some truth but I think I didn't exercise enough. I don't blame genetics or gender, its my responsibility and even though I feel like I'm 16 years old, there are days when I am just lazy and don't feel like exercising. Its funny because I love exercising and used to just naturally walk everywhere or ride my bike to the store when I needed something. I believe its all about inspiration and of course pushing myself when I don't feel like exercising.. Ive been off my groove but I'll do it, For ME!.

    I believe that Loving ourselves is so important to living the most blissful and joyful life we can in every aspect of it! I believe It is about really knowing yourself inside and out and taking care of YOU,....#1...First before anything else. This means Loving the way you look now and loving every step you take to make yourself feel good. I believe to Avoid all things and people who just don't support that! Do what you think in best for you and be proud of it, even if you have set a goal, and fall off it! The worse thing you could do is get mad and judge yourself. Its not a failure, its not a mistake, it's something positive, like maybe you just needed that thing at the time and that thing did serve a some positive purpose. It could be a learning process for you.

    So it's all ok. Look at what you need and embrace it. I know a lot of people say " oh no don't go of your juicing or don't take a break from the gym, you doing so well" or " you need more exercise and you need to juice" ( just examples) they mean well with the best of intentions but it's really what you need to decide what's best for you, not what they think is best, Example,. Did you know some people when they have been juicing for a while, one night eat , say, hot wings and blue cheese for dinner and then the next day lose weight and feel good. It's what they body needed and they really enjoyed the wings.

    It's a really positive step in taking charge of your life and what works best for you, We are all different and are going to have different reactions to everything so getting guidance to something we need is healthy as long as we do our way. When we know who we are, Love ourselves and do what makes us feel good and happy, we are living true blissful, healthy, abundant lives.

    I am geting close to the 60 day mark so I am taking the nest few days to decide whats next. It went by fast and I am excited for the next journey in my new lifestyle change!

    Many Inspirations

    Murielggina, Thank you for sharing your juicing experience with all of us. It is inspirational. I am on Day 30. You are right about the weight loss slowing down. I hope I can at least lose 45 pounds by Day 60. I also thought I would lose a lot more by now. After my 60 days, I still want to lose another 70 pounds. When I was young if I gained weight I could take it off so easy. That's not the case anymore.

    In my house, my family cooking lasagna, tostadas, enchiladas, tacos, baked potatoes, mac and cheese, spaghetti, bean burritos, chinese food, and pizza has been the most tempting. It is kind of depressing to see them eat all that and not gain weight, and here I am juicing and the weight loss is slowing down. But, I tell myself what I am doing is for my health as well, not only to lose weight. Thanks again.

    Hello all,

    I followed Dr. Furman's Eat to Live program for a good year before I juiced. I lost alot of weight and my cholesterol dropped from 285 total to 180. My doctor still wanted me on medication because my balance was off. I refused and continued to eat healthy and trust that my body would know what to do. Juicing took me down another 20 pounds but I never went for another set of blood work.

    Here I am juicing again because I gained much of the weight back and it is time to switch things around. I hope to change the long term habits as well this time....in the end, that is just as important as the first step...juicing and loosing. I would recommend Furman's work to everyone even if they are healthy....it will keep them healthy!

    I am on Day 14 and lost 11 pounds! I have a wedding to go to on August 2nd and I will have to go back and get refitted for my tux!!!!! My goal is another 15 pounds after 30 days of juicing and them letting the pounds finish off with a modified juicing meal program.
