Reboot Newbies

Posted by pinklady on 5 years ago

Going to start tomorrow 10/24. I'm a little worried starting as I'm the only one doing it. I will still have to cook my family's dinner. Also with the holidays not too far away I hope I'm not starting in vein. I really need to lose weight. My joints hurt, I can't walk up and down the basement stairs with out huffing and puffing. I'm tired all the time. Etc.

    Cook them something you don't like.

    Seriously...MAKE SURE you juice prior to cooking and have some left over for after your cooking. Also drink a big glass of water too. I am telling you...water is like a diet pill. I usually pound a big glass then carry a glass and sip. Throw some lime or lemon juice (real stuff) in the water. Lime makes me want to drink more water. Dunno why.

    That way it helps cut down on the desire to you know what.

    If that fails spit in their food. JK

    You can drink extra juice. If you really have a hard time, just replace two meals then eat a small portion for the third. You want to get your stomach to shrink though...that really helps limit the volume. Then switch out all meals. Or go every other day, or pick one day on the weekend etc. But please weigh yourself and only in the AM before anything. You stick to this for 10 days with minimal or no cheating you'll think your scale is broken or gravity has gotten less.

    Watch the MOVIE again! And start learning new healthy foods that you never really tried before. This is not the end but just the beginning. Just remember to think positive thoughts and always remember no matter what your mind tries to tell you...You hate being tired, achy, out of breath. In just a few months you'll be none of that if you do it right.

    Some hit 30 pounds a month which is attainable by walking, drinking juice, water...by Christmas you'll be about 165. You could be even less if you take up cage fighting. That is including a single thanksgiving meal LOL.

    Thank you little engine. Good advice. The 1st juice I drank this morning was good but a little too acidic. Then I made joes mean green UGH! I so do not like the kale in it. Will drink it because I don't want to waste the food. But next time I will probably try substituting cabbage or something next time. If I had to drink juice with kale I probably would not juice. Could you tell me the juices you found you like?

    Oh please try the mean green with spinach! I find it so much better. I can't stand kale in my juice - it's like drinking grass to me. But spinach I can do! And I totally agree with Little Engine - make your family something you don't eat. For my family, it's fish. Purchased a quart of really nice (fresh, not canned) clam chowder that I would never touch with a 10 foot pole. So they will eat well, I hardly have to cook and we all make it out ok for another day.

    Hang in there - as many shared with me, the first few days can be tough but then you start to feel so much better and things get easier!

    I hate radicchio. It is the worst taste I have had. My Dad LOVES it. Course he throws in hot peppers in his juice too.

    So some people have different tastes. Be careful of cabbage. You should drink anything with cabbage right then (so I am told so I do). But it can be a little mean on the palate. So I recommend no more than 1/2 cup at the beginning just to see how you react. I can do a lot now but when I started it hurt me :).

    Cucumbers peeled is a nice additive because it is bland but still good and has good stuff in it. Celery is light too. But just a few stalks cause it does have a unique taste about it.

    I like a lot of juices. In the am I try to keep it light so I do a parsnip, 4 kale, 1/2 broccoli, cucumber, 3 apples, half lemon, some berries, 2 celery stalks, a 1/2 inch chunk of ginger, and if still have room in the pitcher I may add another apple or pear or tomato.

    Another absolute favorite when I think I need some motivation I peel a pomegranate and sneak a seed or two while doing so, grab a whole bag of cranberries,a slice or three of lemon, and apples until the pitcher is full. As a trick if you have a high rpm spinning blade type juicer put a large apple in first where it is just slightly bigger than the port and push the apple almost to the blade. Then put the seeds/berries on top of the apple. That way you don't get seeds on the ceiling. The cranberries are really good for women because of the tendency to get infections. Pomegranate I think is my favorite because it is so damn hard to prep. All that effort has got to be worth it :) The juice is an work of art to look at and a 5 star taste delight.

    Pour it over ice...I am telling you...you cannot buy juice better than that. Juices like that I reserve for my family. I may do a heavy fruit juice twice a week and always share with my family. Keep going Pink Lady. My pom poms are out and I am cheering for you with you.!

    I start tomorrow. All of this information is GREAT. I like kale, but I can imagine it is quite "grassy" we shall see, I do plan to drink it however, I will be trying spinach as well...I LOVE SPINACH. Great juicing advice here...nervous and excited. Good luck!

    Good Luck, Hezzebelle - hope you like it as much as I do. I'm tempted to try pomegranate since Little Engine suggested it - the idea of that color instead of brown pond sludge has got me excited!!

    Hey Y'all. My name is Jeannette and I am looking at this juicing thing really hard. A friend is loaning me her juicer and I'm going to Costco next week to get produce. I know I need to be prepared. Here's what I'm hoping to gain from juicing..... #1-weight loss #2-glowing skin #3-joint pain relief #4-muscle pain relief #5-I'm curious to see if my hot flashes die down #6-better health in general #7-feeling better about how I look. This is a long hugh.

    I'm 47, overweight, am disabled, and sick and tired of looking and feeling like I do.

    Keep drinking Joe's Mean Green with the kale in it. I know it's gross right now. In fact, that's the whole point. It's the addiction to the wrong foods that makes it taste so foul. Don't pour it over ice. Just put it in a big cup and go all frat boy chugalug on it. You have to trust that your taste buds will change. That kale provides all kinds of things you need. The protein content alone is the best source you're going to have during this fast. Gut it out! :)

    Using spinach instead of kale has kept me on this fast as long as it has (18 days). Otherwise I would have quit long ago. Sorry, Mike - this girl can't go all frat-boy-chug-a-lug with the kale. And if you look at the nutrients in spinach versus kale, they come out very close to each other, so I feel just fine with the substitution.

    @Jeanette, PLEASE do it for yourself! I am 48 years old, have completed 2 (30 day) juice fasts. Lost 45 pounds so far (I'll do another one in April, still have about 50 pounds to go). My blood pressure has dropped from 165/89 to 106/60, hair is super soft and shiny, skin tone has improved, joint pain is better and energy levels are through the roof! I am now doing a one week fast every month, with plans for a full 30 days in April. Oh, and my hot flashes are nearly gone! (although I did appreciate them a few days ago when we had single digit temps!)
