Weight loss dilema

Real Change

Posted by Anthony on 1 year ago

Greetings to all,

I am currently on Day 24 of a Rebbot and the weight isnt coming off as expected and I don't know why (even though I have an idea).

I have faithfully been drinking 4-5 veggie/fruit drinks (no more than 2 fruits per 3-4 vegetables) every day and in the first 10 days I lost 7kg (15.4 lbs). In the next 10 days I only lost 3.5 kg (7.2 lb) doing everything exactly the same and today, 4 days after the last milestone I have only lost 1kg (2.2 lb). I have even had some days were I didn't lose anything that day and on a two ocasions my weight even increased by about 500gr (1.1 lb).

I understand that there may be fluctuations and even days when the scale just stalls giving a chance for the body to catch up; but is this slowing down of weight loss normal.

I have not eaten any food at all. I probably should drink more plain water and there are days where I have gone for about 6 hours in between juices, (I can handle hunger very well). I am pretty active during the day and even though I do not feel weak, I feel that I am constantly operating at about 80% of my energy level.

I have one more week to go and I ws expecting to have lost close to 20kg.(44 lb) in the 30 days but at this rate it will be much less.

Does anyone know if juicing for such an extended period of time affects your metabilism? Does it slow it down permanently? Is there anything I can do to boost the weight loss? Even though I am enjoying the experience and motivating others to do the same, it is not something I want to repeat often. I am starting to get sick of the juices and I am craving to eat. ;-)

Good luck to all the juicers and any help will be appreciated.

    I think it's normal to have a bigger weight loss at the beginning because you lose a lot of water retained in your cells, because you don't eat salt anymore, then also your intestine's gets empty and all of that. Then you're body is a little shocked about the weight loss and you hit the plateau and you're weight sometimes doesn't move for a while, because your body hay to adapt to the new way of eating. Then after some time your weight starts to move again in a slower pace and it's only then you're really starting to lose the weight that counts.

    For most people (except for ones that have a lot of extra weight or are close to ideal weight already), I see the trend that the avarage weight loss in around 1 lbs / half a kilo per day. So if you juice for 30 days, you're most likely to lose 30 lbs/15kg all together. There can also be other variations, it truly depends on each person's journey.

    From my research, the average weight loss in 25 to 30 Lbs in 30 days, Unless you are 150 to 200 Lbs overweight, meaning you have way more to lose. I am on day 48 and down 39.6 Lbs.

    I am drinking about 2-2.5 liters a day. Most days I drink 5 juices of about 500ml each. Rarely I drink 6 juices and sometimes 4 when my schedule is out of whack. Do you think that could have something to do with it?

    No problem, Joe drank 6 20oz juices a day in the movie. That's roughly 4 liters / 1 gallon.

    I finally finished Day #30. I lost a total of 29.8 lbs in 30 days (but I will round it up to 30 lbs, it looks better that way ;-) 30 in 30...). I am sooo looking forward to eating again. I think I will repeat the process, but I don't think I will go another 30 days, maybe 2 weeks every 3 months like joe has mentioned.

    Congratulations! You did it! Great weight loss too. 30 lbs you don't have to carry anymore with you.

    One thing I do is lower my "peg" whenever I do a fast. I promise myself I will never weigh more than "x" again. Sometimes, 60-90 days after a fast, I hit that weight and it immediately triggers another fast until I drop 10-15 pounds. I have never been more than my peg weight for a day and I keep lowering my peg.
