The Mean Green Ruined me.. Starting again!

Reboot Newbies

Posted by Wizzadora on 3 years ago

Hello,

I started a reboot 8 days ago and got to 5 Day and I was super happy, not hungry at all and had lost 2kg! Day 6 I had to have 2 large portions of the Mean Green and for some reason it made me super hungry. I ate a whole cucumber to calm my stomach down but nothing! So I gave up and had a veggie pizza (from a veggie pizza place - local and good ingredients). That was 2 days ago. Yesterday I juiced all day and had a stirfry with prawns and veggies for lunch. I woke up today feeling bloated, puffy face, tired and cranky so I'm restarting again. I decided I'm going to keep posting here every day to keep myself on track. I'm doing this reboot because I want to to improve my overall health and lose excess weight so here I am typing and sipping my warm water and lemon.

    Hi, maybe try changing juices around. I'm a total newbie & my fav so far is the Apple/Beet/Carrot with a little ginger & lemon. The ginger would help you with the bloating. Also, check out the different recipes on this site and/or pick up the book 101 juice recipes from the store. I've had a lot of fun browsing through the different recipes. Don't let little setbacks bring you down, you're very determined and are inspiring me to juice on!

    Congratulations on making it 6 days, that's 6 more days than you had done before, right? That's great!

    I recommend getting Joe's book about the reboot so that you can follow his plan, which should help. Sometimes we may not get enough juice, which may cause our bodies to really go into hunger. For my first reboot, the hunger didn't go away until after day 15.

    Good luck and happy juicing!

    Thanks for the encouragement guys! Day 2 of my second reboot and I'm doing really well. I find that if I keep drinking juice and I'm not lazy, I am not hungry at all. I find that being out of the house helps keep me busy. I hate sitting around the most because it's demotivating :-/. I was out this morning and I grabbed a Coldpressed juice (Joe says in his book that these are the best one when you're out and about) whih was delicious!

    Rookie - I am following Joe's book "Juice to Lose it" and I find the recipes very good (apart from the mean green :-/).

    granters - I agree with you apple/beet/carrot/ginger and a bit of lemon or elery is one of my favorite and my go-to-juice when I'm out of ideas. I now have a watermelon in the kitchen which I need to get creative with :)

    Don't give up....keep trying....you can stick to it. If the Mean Green really turns you the wrong way, stick to the ones you can tolerate.

    The crankiness, bloated and tired feeling could have been from the pizza. It often takes a couple of days to get the full effect of anything we eat. Even if it's a "vegetarian" meal, anything with flour and/or sugar will really upset your system, and will create more cravings, so best to avoid completely.

    Be careful with the watermelon....lots of sugar in there. Make sure to stick to the 80% veg, 20% max fruit.

I juiced all day and I was feeling great but as I mentioned it was a very stressful day.. my mum started anither round of treatment for her cancer .. so i ate last night and I'm still trying to digest. Terrible exprience. I'm juicimg today and heading out for a much needed walk.

    The big book of juices helps me get creative with juice ingredients. My favorite is watermelon strawberries and lime with zucchini
