    Back at the juice only, Have to admit it was good to eat for a couple of days, and hard to go back to the juice yesterday and today ( like I was back at day one) but a goal is a goal and I have set my mind to reach it whether it takes 100 or 120 days.

    I have been feeling so run down lately. I am juicing twice and eating a meal - the other day I didn't feel like I had an ounce of energy.......... this lull is really throwing me off.....suggestions?

    You getting any salt? Potassium? Protein? Lack of any of those would be my first suspects.

    Been kind of quiet in here. Well, I ate my salads and other good stuff and I will be back at day 1 of juice 3.0 bright and early tomorrow morning. Hope you all had a healthy weekend!

    Day 2 of 30. Off for a 5k walk. I'm surprised how many people are signed up for this guided reboot. Last count I made was close to 80.



    I need to drink more water.



    Have a great Saturday!

    Hi, my juice family, sorry in advance for such a long post, but I thought I would share what has gone on with me the past few days.



    I took on a pretty big job that had to be done asap, so I have worked 55 hrs.+ 2hr travel time each way in the past 4 days. A couple of kids (under 25) and I did a complete tear off and re-sheet and installed a metal roof for the parents of a member of my church.



    For the first day and a half I was fine, keeping up with the whipper snappers...ha ha climbing 25 ft. ladders, carrying around 1/2" sheets of plywood, bending stooping etc.etc.



    Let's just say it was more physical work that I have done at one time in years. Three-quarters way through day 2, I hit the wall, started feeling weak and felt like I was a car running out of gas. I made sure I had brought plenty of juice mixed with protein and was drinking lots of water so I thought I was covered.



    I found out different. I needed more fuel than I could get out of juice.



    Now in the past, I would go to the nearest fast food joint and eat 2lbs of sh*t. Not this time. I struggled through to the end of the day and by the time I got home I was literally dragging.



    Now this begins the interesting part. I had no cravings for my usual go to calorie dense stuff like cheese, carbs, meat, and sugar, but my body was screaming...FEED ME!



    So, when I got into the house, (thank God I had just resupplied) I made a huge bowl of baby spinach, 2 sliced sweet potatoes, my pickled jalapenos, 2 ounces of grapeseed oil and some vinegar.



    Tossed it into the microwave for 8 mins and ate it like a hungry dog. Washed it down with a watermelon/strawberry protein juice and 800mg of ibuprofen and within a half an hour I felt as full and happy as if I had eaten a thanksgiving dinner. I could actually feel the nutrition flooding back into my body. So, I broke my juice only fast for the next 3 days, but eating all good stuff.



    In hindsight, I should have known that if you are doing juice only you cannot expect to take on a herculean task and expect to draw on energy that is not there.



    The amazing part of this to me is I proved to myself that I have accomplished rebooting my brain into craving the good stuff... Holy Cow! Can you say life changing epiphany a-ha moment? I can.



    So to recap my experience to date with the reboot program.



    Since April 15, 2016, when I started prepping for the fast (18 weeks total) I have lost 70 lbs., regained stamina, clarity of skin and mind and have eliminated a lifelong dependence on eating and drinking unhealthy foods.



    I can confidently say that my life has been changed and saved... All thanks to watching a video late one night on Netflix (back in 2011) called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.



    Juice 3.0 starts tomorrow and I am done with jobs that big until I'm at my goal and eating full time again. That's my story and I'm sticking to it :)



    Amen, and Juice on!

    Day 1 of my 30 Day Guided Inflammation Reboot. See if I can make it past 13 days.

    Full disclosure I had some chocolate yesterday which was really delicious (yes it was) but this morning I was rather snappy with one of my kids (who was not helping his own cause, but...) and if I'm being totally honest with myself I will admit that my emotions become less predictable and I become more on edge when I don't stay with my simple food plan (juice, smoothie, produce, small amount of meaty protein) and instead go for simple carbs (such as pastas, bread) or sugars (such as chocolate).



    I'm not expecting myself to be perfect, but I can't fool myself either that I'm able to "get away" with eating crap food or food that is "out of bounds" without any possible repercussions. It isn't just about weight for me (although that is very important) - this is about quality of life for me and the people I care about. Feels good to talk about this and to try my best to live that I want today.

    Hear you there Elias, but the net effect is all positive. You are adjusting life long habits, that took how long? It will happen, believe me.

    Thanks for the reality check Jim - yes, I'm continuing to make mostly great choices as compared to how my life used to be. Thanks!!
