    Hello to the group, I'm Denis, 44, from germany. I have type 1 diabetes for 38 years now, and I'm planning to reboot soon. I wanted to try out a 3-day reboot to look how it's working and then go for longer reboots step-by-step.



    My question to the more expeirenced juicers: I have the impression that the carbohydrate numbers in Joe's plans are way to high. I did a juice-only day and my blood sugar went down quite strong after giving insulin according to Joe's plan. Do you share this?

    Wow.... just took a reading, 2 hours after a large "Hot Green", and it was down to 85. I have not seen 85 in years!

    Anneski, wee are measuring our blood sugar differently it seems.



    My meter reads in mg/dl, and normal range is 80-120. Your numbers sound like A1C numbers, but I don't know how to do that at home.



    When I started my 90% juice fast and a little bit of clean foods regime 14 days ago, my blood sugar was over 400. The past several days it is always under 200 and one time 2 hours after a juice it was 108, so I am pleased at the progress. I have also lost 12 pounds so far.

    michaelnel, I presume you're in America? We've always measured our sugars differently, I think. Anyway, my monitor measures in what you refer to as A1C numbers, even though our A1C system has recently changed, lol! Normal on that scale is 4-7. I'm pleased with how I'm doing, and I think you're doing brilliantly!

    Hi all,



    I feel bad to report that my first four days were a failure...utter despair and failure... :(



    Started off Day 1 well, but since I'm an emotional eater, a trigger came up and I went to the food. So I brushed off and went to Day 2...again, got through dinner juice, but a really bad craving hit and despite taking a walk, taking cleansing breaths, et.al, I gave into the craving and literally BINGED on all the food that is not good. Day 3, binged the whole day. Became proactive to succeed Day 4 -- stress at work -- tossed the juice and went to McDonald's...not only having a double cheeseburger, but cookies and shake to follow.



    I'm sorry to report this since you all are doing so well! Some group member I am... :(



    Today (Friday July 31) is my starting Day 1 ALL over again...so far so good. I don't get headaches or dizziness, just really bad cravings for solid food. I want to juice only because I have no control over doing partial food. Hope to make it past Day 3 so all I crave is the next juice. Thanks all for reading.

    Wow. Thank you so much for your honesty. That sounds like my last attempt at a reboot. A few things that I have done differently this time is that I removed ALL of the quick carby/fatty foods from my fridge/freezer/pantry and filled the fridge with produce for salads and juice. Also, I put my wallet in my trunk of the car insead of within my reach. That made it more discouraging to go to a drive-thru. After a couple of days of eating clean, it was easier. Stick with it........you can do this!

    Hey Everyone,

    Well, I decided to move up my start day (Five Day Plan w/Juice Only) to Monday, July 27. Lots of mixed feelings from fear, to anxiety, to helplessness. People in Costco thought I was crazy with a cart full of fruits/veggies and I was starting to think the same. But, I guess rebooting cant be worse than jumping from a plane without a parachute, so here we go.



    My question is if I dont want to use a recipe in the Five Day Reboot, what else can I use? If you drink four-six juices, do you ensure your day has two mostly fruit juices, two mostly veggie juices and two 80% 20% of both? Or can you be random? I don't want to deny my body what it needs for balance, but keep the variety. Thanks all. :)

    After seeing my doctor, it was recommended that I ease into the program because several patients have started, failed, started again and he was concerned with the blood sugars going up and down, erratically. I normally have the lemon and water in the morning, then the green juice in the morning, mid afternoon oatmeal with blueberries, nuts, and sometimes a banana if anticipating a physical workday. Drinking water all day, I will normally keep a piece a fruit around, in case I feel a little low. When I get home, I like to juice some carrots, and have a light dinner. I am slowly acclimating to buying fruits and vegetables more, learning about all the different veggies out there. Saw Joes second movie, and was grateful to see that although the juicing moves our lives in a dramatic positive direction, we still have to deal with everyday life and the negativity that comes along with it. This negativity seems to drive us back to the processed food in order to temporarily feel good. It's only been two days, and everyday I learn more about incorporating more veggies into my lifestyle. I've lost 4 pounds so far and feel "even?" No ups and downs, and more energy than I've ever had. I still have to get excersizing back into my life, which is just a priority weakness. Anyway, Hope every one is doing well. Juice on!!!

    Good morning folks! Today is day 2, and last night was tough. I woke around 2:30 this morning to a WICKED case of hypoglycemia. I had to go eat. I'm really down about this, but I don't think I can do a full juice reboot right now. I'm thinking that I have three throughout the day, and then I eat a healthy dinner to keep the glucose spike down through the night. Does anyone else have any ideas or things that worked for you? I could really use the help...

    Hello :-) I had type 2 diabetes and what worked for me was keeping a thermos filled with ice and juice with me at all times. Instead of having juice meals I sipped on juice all day long. I would make all my juice in the morning and throughout the day just keep refilling my thermos. If I felt like I needed a little bit more pick me up in my juice I would had more fruit. Because my juice with a little watered down and I was sipping on it I never spiked my sugar. The first couple of days are the hardest. Once you're over them your sugars will balance out. You have to give the juice fast time to clean out the hardware ;-) If you can't do a hundred percent juice then I would recommend consuming only plant foods and smoothies and as many juices as you can fit in. I would stay away from red meat because there are studies out the show it spikes your insulin higher than a white potato. I will link a video that goes into detail on this for you. stay strong and juice on :-)
