    Great to see some life is still left in this group! I am still spending a huge amount of my time working on my site www.juiceandfeast.com . But I think it is now beginning to feel like a place to get good information especially around what to do after you finish a reboot and feel a little lost on how to win the long term battle.

    I'll be finishing my 30 day juicing fast in six days! I'm trying to plan ahead so that I don't fall back into bad eating habits. I read the posts, and I like the idea of juice in the morning, salad for lunch and a healthy meal for dinner, such as soup. But I figured I'd need some ideas for the first few days immediately after the fast to avoid the digestive issues. Any tips?

    Well Done! I have heaps of tips on my site www.juiceandfeast.com and a few blog posts.

    Congratulations! I did a 60-day reboot. My suggestion is that you stay a few days only eating salad, fruits and nuts. Then you can go back to eating meat. And an important resolution: physical activity! The first thing I did after my reboot was to perform a physical examination to determine if I could exercise, and start a daily exercise routine.

    I am finishing up day 137 of my 150 day fast and feel as phoenomenal as I did during day 1. Since I have yet to re-acclimitize my body in to eating food again I probably won't have the best advice such as Peter or Andre. Yet I will still say even if you do fall off the horse and eat bad food don't punish yourself emotionally. You are human and none of us are perfect. You can always succeed and make better choices the next day. My dietary advice would be not to over-eat (to the point of feeling pain from being full), I'd avoid dairy as well as meat for a few weeks as well as processed/refined foods. From there if you do decide to have a burger, a slice of pizza, and the what not, you should be able to tell fairly quickly which "unhealthy" foods have the most adverse reaction to your body. The last thing I would think anyone should do is start cramming down toxic foods shortly after cleansing yourself for so long. It's a recipe for disaster (Or atleast feeling icky). Cheers!! And congrats! :)

    It's late and I need sleep but I will be sure to visit your website asap and give you comments and/or input. Thank you for creating this group and being inspired enough to want to start a website to help people. Good on you!

    Hi Guys!





    I am super excited to say I have built it! Yes that website I keep talking about . Well I spent the better half of the last week knuckling down and building a site. It has everything you could want as far as a community and groups. I will continue the discussion over there and I am in no way trying to compete with this site. But please have a look as I think you will seriously like the site.

    Peter,



    I started out with a 21 day reboot and just decided to go all the way to 60 days. I weighed in yesterday and lost 52lbs. I was going to follow the food pyramid model that you posted. I also read the links that your added, they were very helpful. The broccoli and carrots went right thru me but I am still juicing most of the day so I feel fine. Looking forward to the good stuff next week.

    Wow 52 pounds is amazing for me its now about the G-BOMBS Greens, Beans Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds. This is how I take them:

    Greens - At least one large salad daily with a variety of other ingredients (beetroots, Carrots Celery, Olives, Artichokes, Tomatoes, Cabbage etc... + 2 glasses of juice a day one for breakfast and small one before bed this is green and has my kale, celery and spinach, cucumber, lemon and ginger and 2 serves of fruit

    Beans - I make a bulk cold salad or stew with a bean base usually chick peas and lentils and quinoa for base for the cold salad and 5 bean + white beans for the stew. I have either the stew or cold salad daily. This also contains my Mushrooms and Onions.

    Berries - Smoothies & use my cold press juicer to make 100% pure mixed organic sorbet. Just freeze them and put them in the top and out the waste shoot comes sorbet (My Daughter loves this).

    Seeds - I put a ground tablespoon of flax-seeds in my beans salad and bring an ounce of mixed seeds & nuts to work and an apple

    My first few days of eating I put on 2 pounds (the food weight in my body) and had a bit of digestion pain but after that was fine. Put red cabbage in your juice as it is one of the best stomach and digestive healers out there

    Today is day one of solids and I can't believe I'm excited to eat a dinner which will consist of broccoli, carrots, a pear, and watermelon. Can't wait to get to the good stuff.

    Hi and welcome!

    What is your transition plan? How long did you juice?

    Hey there, I've finished my 21day reboot after 20 days and made the mistake of starting with cooked food (pasta + meat) right away. I had a terrible weekend with cramps and massive digestion problems. Also, in just 3 days of returning to solid food I've regained around 5-6 pounds.



    A very bad start that was until now and I also lost a lot of energy and am feeling tired and sick again, similar to my first week of the reboot. I've got a strong urge to start another reboot right away for another few weeks, but I think I should first try to balance off my diet with wholefood and unprocessed plants mainly.



    What's a typical post-reboot day for you now Peter? What's on the menu?

    Hi Alex,

    Well done on finishing your reboot!

    I had the same urge. I gained 3 pounds the day after I started eating. But it was just the food weight having starting digestion again. After a week I have lost that and a bit more now.

    I have been following the Eat to Live way of eating. Which is 90-10 whole foods to other foods. With majority of calories coming from green vegetables. Similar to eating what I juiced. I have had some meats in small portions, fish and chicken but no processed meats.

    I have found the website http://www.forksoverknives.com/recipes/ extremely useful as the recipes are very tasty and look good. They are also simple enough to cook in bulk. I have had the occasional treat of processed food or I would go crazy. But in moderation and as more of a taste sensation.

    I find that juicing for breakfast and a small juice after dinner keeps me on track and craving the good foods.

    Hello I'm still not quite finished with my reboot. But I will be done on Wednesday. Any tips?

  • Peter

    I think follow one of the food plans in the relaxed reboot or I found eat to live and the Forks over knifes website great for modern wholefood recipes. I'm still drinking juice twice daily and will try to do so for the next few months. Juice for breakfast and then a salad for lunch and hearty soup for dinner is ideal. But otherwise just follow the juice for breakfast and salad for lunch and eat with the family at night.

    Hi Guys,



    Just an update Day 3 after finishing my reboot. I have been strictly following a wholefoods diet and the 90-10 rule (that is 90% of my calories come from whole foods mainly vegetables) 10% is from anything else that is still not processed. I have not had any processed foods, chocolate or snacks at all so far as I have not had the urge or need.



    I have put on about 1 pound but I know that will be just the adjustment to eating again and I will quickly balance that off.



    I do feel I have broken the cycle of addiction and although I know I could eat whatever I like. I have no strong urge to do that.



    I have also stayed off any caffeine products. I think this is one of the most important things and I see caffeine as a gateway stimulant to binge eating. I now have even and lasting energy all day and I want to keep it that way. I feel the afternoon energy drop that I used to get as a result of caffeine addiction was the trigger to have a coffee and a snack or go to the shops and often buy sweets.
