Second or more juicing timers??

Reboot Newbies

Posted by WJS on 5 years ago Today is my 7th day juicing and would love to hear from someone that has juiced in the past about re gaining weight. I would assume because we eat no solid food that once off the juice fast there would be some weight gain. Can anyone say how much they put on shortly following the fast once eating solids? Also did you experience any additional weight gain once you started eating normally? I know it isn't meant to happen but I am also very worried my metabolism may be slowing down and it will be very easy to gain weight eating a normal calorie diet.

    Hi WJS, This is my second time juicing. The first was for 18 days in May. I did totally the wrong thing and after juicing went right back to my old unhealthy eating habits. So yes, I put back all the weight I had lost while juicing. This time I am better prepared. I have heard that you may put on a small amount of weight after juicing, but I'm sure this will only be temporary as long as we stick to a healthy eating plan. I don't intend to go back to my old eating habits. Wishing you all the best.

    I juiced for 60 days, lost 63 pounds. When I began eating again I started very slowly, stayed vegan for about a month. I gained 5 pounds back in that month but have kept it off, gaining a couple of pounds if I go back to my "bad" eating habits (fast food, pizza, etc). I can eat like a "normal" person, good, healthy food and not gain. As soon as the chips, etc are added I see it creep up. I have found that if I eat non processed foods I maintain my weight loss. If I gain (birthdays, holidays, etc) I juice for a few days until the weight comes off again. Also, I have found that if I continue to juice a couple of times a day (as well as eat 3 healthy meals) I do not gain. Hope this one perspective helps!

    Thank you both for your helpful replies. I have been trying very hard on Dukan and then JUDDD to lose the last ten pounds without success so fingers crossed this will work for me and I don't gain any back once I start eating. Sadly, I gain weight very very easily. In fact I can gain following a diet most people lose on!

    WJS, I am in the same boat that you are as far as weight gain goes. I am keeping my fingers crossed for us both! heather315

    Heather315, hope you are seeing success. How long do you plan on juicing before eating solid food?

    WJS, I have 26 more days. I have been seeing success but it's slowing a lot more rapidly than I had hoped. It's all good, though. I know this about myself. I know it will take a while. I know this in not a "magic bullet" that will blast away my metabolism issues forever. How about you? Things going well?

    I had intended on doing it for five days but have carried on, this is my 10th day. I am at the moment losing a little over half a pound a day so I am thinking about carrying on as long as this continues. It is very hard for me and I bought the wrong kind of juicer and it is very time consuming making the juice so I am very impressed you will be doing it for 26 more days! I agree about the magic bullet but I do live in hope. :)

    WJS, Hello! I just started my second fast. Today is my 4th day, and all is well. After my 52 day fast, I gained 5 pounds back. That 5 pounds that I lost in the beginning with no problem at all, is the weight that I gained back. It's water weight. After gaining that 5 pounds back, I had maintained a healthy diet for the first month, and then eventually ended up eating the crud for food that I was eating before. I gained 9 pounds back, plus that five, for a grad total of 14 pounds that I gained back between my fasts. With the fast that I am on now, I am super committed to achieving my goal. For my first fast, I lost 52 pounds in 52 days. It was great results, and I was stellar about the results that I was getting. For these first four days of this fast, I have already lost 10.4 pounds, and I'm looking for more. My goal with my first fast was to lose 40 pounds. I certainly wasn't anticipating the wonderful results that I got. I started at 235 and was done to 183. Gaining the five pounds of water weight was a little depressing, after seeing the scale go down each and every day. Now I am headed for a great and healthy weight goal, where I will seriously have to do some maintenance to keep. The key thing is, if you fall off the wagon and eat something bad, DO NOT beat yourself up! We are all human, and we all make mistakes. Some mistakes may not be easy to fix, but with a day or two of juicing, you'll be just fine. (: Don't look at juicing as punishment for gaining weight over the years, or since your last juicing period. Look at the juicing diet as a chance for you to fit back into your skinny jeans again!

    Johanna, 52 pounds for the first time and 10.4 pounds in four days is amazing, well done! The 14 pounds that you re gained are almost gone already. A real inspiration for me to keep going. Thank you. :)
