    Kimmy66,



    Lalune is so right. I dream of veggies. My father always said I didn't like anything that was good for me. But after 26 days I am thinking of how I want to cook my veggies. My sweet cravings are gone. I was a sugar addict, junk food junkie so this is truly amazing. Loved Pizza and spaghetti but hated tomato. Hated zuchinni but have ordered an attachedment for kitchen aid to make spiral zuchinni for spaghetti when I am done with my 60 day reboot. I wanted to reboot my taste buds and I think this is truly working. Focus on your goals make the plan for after. One of the speakers on the fat summit said " A goal without a plan is a wish.' We know wishes go bye bye so keep your plan ahead of you. My husband and I are watching YouTube vegan videos. They don't make me hungry just ready to go into my plan of plant based eating when I am done with this reboot. My goal is a healthy me and hubby. Keep strong and keep juicing.

    So well said, eurocatbaby! I wanted to reboot my body, never imagined that I'd be rebooting my tastebuds, too! I'm doing the same as you, imagining how my diet will have new veggie dishes as the main components and I can't wait. I still even make home made bread all the time for hubby and it's not bugging me one bit not to be able to eat it. My weight loss is slowing down, still just 12 lbs down after 17 days, but I REALLY need to walk. I keep saying that. argh. got to do! I bet I'd start shedding a lot quickly if I'd just make the time. I sit all day and night at the computer for work and that is bad.

    Hello all. I'm so glad there are people out there like me. I am a lover of fruit but eating vegetables is just so painful. Oddly enough, I love V8 and I started the reboot yesterday and so far so good. I have Joe's book and the Australia Gold is very good. This is going to be the hardest thing I've ever done in my life but it has to be done. Hold nose and drink.

    Welcome Kimmy66! We're here with you, don't worry, and look forward to hearing your adventures. I'll tell you, I was very surprised once I started this. Really a life-long hater of veggies, I have been so happy to find that these recipes have been completely fine. There is only one that I didn't like so much. I have been trying everything and don't stick on just one. I ALWAYS put ice in my drink and find that this really also helps somehow. Swish it around, stir it up. Love the cold and the froth. Some of them will have you licking your lips after every sip. There have been reports of some of us here even DREAMING of vegetables :) Haha so how's that for conversion?! Good luck and you may even find the whole thing isn't at all as difficult as you may think! It's about 2.5 weeks for me, I'm never hungry and this is certainly not the hardest (or even close) diet I have ever tried.

    Michelle, I, too, hope juicing helps you. Pain is a horrible thing and it seems many of us here are suffering with this. Mine is spinal damage from some heavy landscaping I did in 2006 (my own place). Dug a trench around the perimeter of my backyard then hauled I don't know how many tons of 3/4" gravel, screening and soil to the back to fill it after putting in weeping tile. I shoudn't have done it myself and thought I was doing everything properly, but damage was done. Now I haven't slept a full night since 2006 for severe pain. Intense, burning nerve pain goes down through my hips, legs and arms. The legs are every 10 minutes all night, but I get instant relief when I turn to the other side (for another 10 min). If it's in my arm, forget it. Nothing I can do, no meds can stop it. Thankfully the arm isn't as consistent as the hips/legs! Obviously losing a bit of weight should help too. I also have fibromyalgia. I remember from the last time I was consistently walking, that it really did help with the fibromyalgia. The mental benefits of doing something good and healthy for your body is also a big boost for your general all over health.

    We'll do it together, Michelle! I have 80 to lose, snuck up on me when I quit a 2 1/2 pack a day cigarette habit 12 years ago. Or maybe it's the water in the city I moved to at that time :p I have everything your parents have, including the fatty liver (which is very unappealing). I hope that is reversible. I also would like to see a change in my glucose. So far I'm not seeing too much, but I really need to start walking too. Today is the 2 wk mark and I've lost 12.4 lbs. Not as much as other people, but we're all different and doing different things.

    How many days are you doing lalune

  • lalune

    You can do it, Michelle! I am finding I'm really not bothered by it. Stick to your own schedule for your juices, maybe make them and drink before preparing their meals, then you won't be hungry and it won't even bother you. One thing I told hubby though, is no junk snacks in the house. I don't want the temptation here!

    thanks lalune. I might start Monday....I'm just nervous to fail once again. I have about 70 lbs to lose. No health issues yet except hypothoidism but my parents have everything I don't want HBP, diabetes, fatty liver. I have teenagers so I know there will be some junk food in the house but I have to learn to resist.

    I was hit by a car while walking in a parking lot 10 months ago and still have neck and ankle pain from that. Hoping juicing might help.

    Maybe I could chug coconut rum but I think that defeats the purpose. Vanya you hang in there. I know I am recovering from surgery for my ankle broken in 2 places and enough metal now that I should set off metal detectors. I also have arthritis in my back and fibromyalgia so I understand the pain part. I am on day 22 and it is a little better but I have a lot to lose and years of fast food abuse to make up for. So I just look at long term goal. Keep the focus and juice on.

    You can always add salt to your drink. We drink some veggie broth that is organic low sodium so we add some salt. Of course, if you put the coconut water in some of the green juices we have found it kind of sweetens them a little. Just plain it is nasty. My hubby can chug it but I can't.

    I HATE coconut water. Any suggestions?

    Hello lovely people :) My name is Vanya and I just register myself here and this is the first group I've desided to join. Don't need to explain why :D I ordered my SAGE today so I still don't do much but look so much forward for this day.

    I had knee injury about 4-5 years ago and I went to doctor last week because I didn't take that as serious as I should. So in Denmark doctors told me that I have to live with pain and noice in my knee. He sugested that I lose about 30 kg. to help my knee. When I came to Denmark I was about 46-47 kg. and the other day in the hospital I was 83.

    I don't have serious illness like many other people and I don't take pills so thats good. But I really want to clean myself from all junk that I was eating and start all over again.

    I have centrifugal juicer so far. It doesn't give a lot of juice but it was OK before I desided to upgrade. And one thing I've learned last summer was to sit outside or go for a walk in the park and drink with straw if I don't like very much the taste. There is something about fresh air that helps me :)
