I watched the movie and i got all excited, here is a guy showing everyone a way to lose weight. get healthy and help others through a documentary. I wanted to learn how i too can start this juicing and looked up the web site as I was going through the site it start to become clear that it was leaning more onto if you want to succeed in this you will need to buy his product in order for you to succeed. It is a lot like all the other weight loses programs over the years its all about profit. Buy my juice guide, buy my protein add in, buy my $150 to $300 day guide. Its all about money and not helping people that need help. I wont be surprised that this post gets deleted. I need help but it should not have to cost me $500 to lose 5 pounds tell me if i am wrong about this has anyone out there done this without buying nothing from him I would like to know. I am tired of being over weight and unhealthy.

    I have lost about 40 pounds, and the only thing I bought was Joe Cross's first book, "The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet". Do I buy their protein powder? No, I use Nutrasumma pea powder. Did I buy one of their guided reboot plans? No, I don't need them, what I'm doing is working just fine.

    On the other hand, running a website and making movies and publishing books cost money. They need to pay the bills somehow. Taking time to guide people through a reboot takes time and money, someone has to pay the bills.

    Buy Joe's first book and watch his first movie, that is really all you need to do this. That and come to the forums and ask for help with any specific topic, there are a lot of experienced knowledgeable people here that will share what they know for free.

    The thing that makes it work is the reduced calorie intake. Almost any diet will result in weight loss if you cut back the calories. The key to making a diet work is 1) sufficient reduction in calories ingested, 2) not feeling like you are starving cause this is why people break the diet and 3) getting adequate nutrition so you can remain healthy while loosing weight. A lot of fad diets are not very healthy, but a proper reboot can give you all of these things.

    The reboot regimen drastically cuts back on calories, and because of the reduced calorie reduction, you can loose a half a pound a day or more. I personally consume fruit, yogurt, juice, veggie soup and tofu, and I still loose a half a pound a day.

    I've lost 10 lbs in 5 weeks and I haven't bought anything from Joe - not even the book or the movie. I saw both his documentaries on Netflix. And I've SAVED ridiculous amounts of money on FOOD because it's so much cheaper to eat veggies and fruits that are healthy and alive than it is to eat meat and dairy that is being sustained artificially and is full of sugar (hamburger is even full of added sugar these days) and isn't good for you. (The body is not designed to eat meat,,,,,intestines are too long....takes so long for it to go through the body, it putrifies before it's eliminated...not to mention the degradation of the retail level of food supplied these days...the condition of meat is fattier, full of hormones and much of it is full of disease covered up by salt water and flavorings so you won't taste or smell it at the store or during cooking.) I also found out through this experience that protein comes from plants, it only turns into meat in animals, just like it turns into meat in you when you eat plants like animals do. It's a conundrum. We were taught animal protein is necessary, but it was never true. Nowadays it's even LESS true. All comes from food industry sponsorship of Government programs promoting their industries. The more I learn about food, the less food costs, the skinnier I get!

    In many parts of south east Asia, they grow soybeans as a major food source. Soybean is one of the few plant products considered a "complete" protein, as it has all the amino acids that the body can manufacture. Peas and pea protein, in comparison, is missing methionine, and is not a "complete" protein. Soy prodution per acre is much much higher than meat production per acre.

    Yet what do we do with soybean in the USA? We press it for oil and feed it to our cows. One of the best plant based protein sources in the world, and we feed it to our livestock so we can eat the meat from the animals.

    People in soybean eating/producing countries look at us, shake their heads, and wonder what is wrong with us. So do I...

    I've spent some time studying life expectancy and diet. Man discovered the secret to long life millennia ago, long before Western civilization even existed, and long before any of the quack diets you see today were invented. Those that live longer healthier lives have a diet that is not alkaline, not vegan, not even vegetarian. They eat meat, sometimes a lot of it. They eat fat, oil, they drink wine and booze. The key to long life is eating whole natural foods, and not the processed crap that adorns western grocery stores. The secret to good nutrition is to avoid all processed foods, avoid anything that has an artificial ingredient (sweetener, conditioner, preservative, colorant). Avoid all foods with corn syrup. Limit white sugar, white flour.

    If God didn't make it, don't eat it. And what you do eat, don't eat too much of it.THIS leads to health and long life.

    I go to the grocery store today, I look at aisle after aisle full of boxes and cans of processed crap that I just can't eat. I look at the lunch meat, and shudder at what they put in that stuff. I went to buy some cheese and looked at what they put in it and put it back on the shelf (I bought a book on making cheese and that is my adventure of this month - learning to make cheese). I walk out of the store with a basket full of produce and some meat, and when I am running low, rice or wheat or beans or peas.

    You ever look at the ingredients of yogurt? The vast majority of yogurt sold is not yogurt, it is yogurt flavored milk with corn syrup and thickening agents added. This is why I make my own yogurt.

    You ever look at the ingredients of a loaf of bread, even the so-called natural and healthy stuff? Basic bread has five ingredients - water, flour, salt, honey, yeast. You don't even need oil. you most certainly do not need the twenty or so different ingredients that infests store bought bread. I grind my own wheat and make my own bread because I can't eat the grocery store crap.

    It's called the Biblical diet - if God didn't make it, don't eat it. And I can assure you, God had nothing to do with the garbage that infests our grocery stores in the USA.

    One parting thought. The people of Okinawa used to have one of the longest life expectancies in the world. Why? Because they ate natural whole foods, meat but not too much. Today their life expectancy has dropped ten years. Why? Because western man showed up with Spam (the canned meat stuff) and western diet, and Okinawans adopted that diet. Now Okinawans are dying ten years younger than they used to. Just saying...

    Correction - it is not "The Biblical Diet" - that is a specific diet based on the Bible. My "diet" is simply "If God didn't make it, don't eat it"...
