    Welcome Jojo. I am on day three and just now getting over the caffeine withdrawal headaches. It got a little easier for me each day. I went to my first Blazers basketball game last night. We had seats in a suite. I didn't realize that it would be loaded with free food and soda. Here I was with my juice (which I was able to sneak in) and everyone around me was drinking and munching down. But I have to say that as I scanned the "food" (meatballs, cookies, sandwiches, coke, etc), it didn't register in my brain as real food. I felt great after I had my juice and felt great when I stepped on the scale this morning. I am glad that I didn't give in to the temptation. The pleasure would have only lasted for a few minutes.

    You need to drink about 64 ounces of juice and 64 ounces of water. It seems like a lot but the juice is for the nutrients and the water is helping get the toxins out of your system. Coconut water will help anyone getting headaches. My hubby and I did a 50 day juice only reboot and these things help us a lot. We still start the day with a glass that has 8oz of water, 8oz of coconut water then we put in Ginger, turmeric & cinnamon along with juice from a lime and half of a lemon. It helps your system get ready to role for the day.

    The caffeine is a tough addiction to kick. As bad as smoking. Hooray for your decision to do a three day reboot. If you can, I would encourage you to go longer. If you aren't ready for a longer reboot then finalize your three day and after a while attempt a longer one. The reason being is it will take longer than three days for your body to detox. It take two weeks to break an addiction. And if you've been used to eating unhealthy foods and are looking to break away from that, it will take longer than 3 days for your taste buds and system to retrain itself to want healthy foods. But whatever you decide is right for you. Good luck on your reboot and welcome to the club.

    KJ, I drank LOTS of juice to get thru the first day but forgot to drink water. My advice is to drink a large glass of water between juices to keep yourself hydrated. Also, I just picked up Joe's book from the library and he recommends a glass of lemon water in the AM and also allows herbal tea. I know from past experience that drinking lots of liquids will help keep the cravings at bay.

    Hi KJ and welcome to the club. Terrific you've decided to make this rather drastic lifestyle change. Whether it's because you want to lose weight, overcome some health issues, or maybe you just want to eat healthier, this is the place to be and juicing is the thing to do.

    In her post above, Ava175 had some good advice. If you are having difficulties with hunger pangs, try drinking an ice cold glass of water. The cold will help shrink the stomach muscles and relieve some of the hunger. Ava is right, it is important to make sure you stay hydrated through this. It's okay to drink water, herbal teas to get through those times.

    There is a lot of useful information on this site without having to go out and buy expensive books. Don't limit yourself to one juice type. There are over 300 juice recipes on this site, mix um up. And don't limit yourself to just green juice or just carrot juice. Not any one vegetable contains all the vitamins and nutrients we need. We need a variety of fruits and veggies.

    If you're doing a juice only, the first four or five days will be tough. Actually, the first day isn't too bad, but near the end of the second day, you'll be getting hungry. Tough it out! You may suffer some withdrawals like a headache, or stomach cramps, or many trips to the BR. Stay with it, it will get better. Most everyone experiences those things, but not all. I think a lot of it has to do with what your diet and lifestyle are before juicing.

    And the most important thing of all, you need a support system. That is what we're here! Everyone in these groups are very supportive, encouraging and understanding. No one is going to hammer you if you cheat or slip up. We all do and we all have those weak moments. If you have anybody in your home that can act as a support, all the better. My wife and I are doing this together so there is mutual support. Good luck and juice on!

    Hi, I was browsing Netflix and ran across Joe's second movie and decided to do this. Why not? It's the perfect time. I am retired and don't have anything planned for the next couple of months. I am really really tired of thinking of myself as an obese/diabetic. I want to get past this and get off the meds. Last time I got down to 175 pounds, my A1C was below 6, so that is what I am shooting for. I plan to juice until I get to 175, then go whole plant based foods - mostly raw. That will be a 31 pound loss for me, so I am probably looking at a few weeks of juice. I am on my second day and feel good except for a caffeine withdrawal headache.

    Welcome to the club Ava. Two or three more days and things will start improving. The toughest part is the cravings. But stay strong. Make sure you drink plenty of water also. And be sure to check out all the amazing recipes they have here on this site. Post back often and let us know how your progress is going. And keep-on-juicin'.

    I was watching a video lecture by Dr. McDougall on dairy and scrolled down to read some of the comments. One in particular caught my attention so I thought I'd share it.





    "Obesity runs in my family. Wait a minute....nobody runs in my family."

    I have to agree with this comment. I have seen this video and the comment and I thought 'wait a minute, Obesity doesn't run in a family unless every one eats badly'. That is a very distinct possibility since the vast majority of people eat a poor diet. I like the comedy of this comment that was made though. I can't run since my surgery and am still losing weight. Ahhhh, the wonders of a good diet started by a really good juice only reboot.

    So if gas is lighter than air, do we weigh more when we pass gas? Just a thought!
