    I made a boatload of carrot/beet juice yesterday! I used 10lbs carrots and one very large bunch of beets with some celery, cukes, and the beet greens. I actually wore myself out by the time I got it all juiced and pressed. But we're going thru it quickly.



    Monday I had about 6 quarts produced? As of now, I only have a bit more than 2 quarts, which needs to be saved for tomorrow, and one 10oz bottle in the fridge. (My husband has taken his for the day to work already.) My son will drink one serving with his breakfast later. (Back to drinking one serving/day.) I tell you, I am craving it and would drink all in the fridge if I allowed myself to(!).



    So today, I need to juice that watermelon and the 2lbs green beans I bought and all these greens, with some celery and cukes and fruit of course. And I personally need to push water!



    I've made the salads for lunch, so we're not juice only. And I bought some fruits on sale to chop up for the freezer for smoothies. A whole bag of nectarines and peaches to wash and chop.



    How's everyone else today?!

    Good morning Happy Juicers! I am here to touch base having a bumpy ride with my parents, and all that has been going on with my mom's procedure but things are now calming down. I have most of the details for the 90th birthday party done for my MIL. So it is all coming together. I bought a new program for my laptop so I could burn DVD's since the new hard drive on my computer was not given a DVD program, and I can use a DVD for the movie I made to show at the party. It came out really well, I chose songs my MIL will like. I sent it digitally to my family to view, my husband could not open it on his phone, but he watched it Friday night on the computer and called to tell me that the photos of his parents together brought tears to his eyes. And that he loved it. I had all of her photos, so I also made her a book of photos from the ones I selected for the video. Snapfish had a 70% off sale so the book was quite reasonable.



    Congratulations on day 16 SunnyRain! I wish I were there with you, you will be at day 30 in the blink of an eye! Struggles come off and on during juicing as you well know so this is just a blip on the radar!



    Zigzag Coconut water contains potassium and you should research the vitamins and minerals in the fruit and veg you are juicing. Usually on a juice fast you get a lower potassium vs a higher one. You may want to see your doctor and tell them you are dieting and would like to have a blood panel done periodically so you can check your progress. It would be a good deal to know your sodium, potassium, and magnesium levels right now. Here are some links you may find helpful The Juicing Collection gives you good information on juicing the juicing calculator allows you to enter your juicing ingredients and see what nutrients you are lacking cronometer helps you to track nutrition, fitness and health. If you are exercising in some way while you are doing this your heart rate will come down. Plus with the diarrhea, you could have some very hard stool in the bowel and the juicing fibers are pushing everything around that so don't be scared if you get some hard poops once the diarrhea like stool starts to break it down. all of the pressure from the intestines if you had a slower moving system would make the heart rate increased and now that the pressure in the abdomen is not pushing on the organs, your heart is not working as hard to get the blood flow there. You should see a drop in blood pressure follow.

    Day sixteen.



    I'm still juicing, doing okay. Last two days were a bit of a struggle, but I managed to work through them. I just made juice for tomorrow and I also cooked some apples and pears and stored the liquid. Not really juice, but it will be something to drink instead of tea.



    Happy juicing! Trust the journey!



    Here are some photos of the produce that went into my juices.






    (lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, apples, lemons, ginger, kiwi)






    (carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, apple, lemons, ginger)

    Hi everyone I’m brand new... today is day 9 of a 30 day reboot... I’ve Diarrhea and I’m still figuring out if it’s because of one of my juices... I hope it improves today soon I ve been twice today as yesterday... other than that I am enjoying the challenge no buddies though... just me....



    I ve a question if anyone can help pl... As I said Its day 9 of a juice-only fast. I’m drinking 4-5 16oz servings of juice per day, 64-96oz of water, plus 2-3 cups of herbal tea. My heart BPM has steadily dropped during the fast into the 40’s and 50’s, though my blood pressure is normal. I read that too much potassium could be at fault, so I stopped drinking coconut water. I don’t know if that was the right decision. My juice fast buddy, my sister, is also experiencing a low heart pulse. Should we be alarmed? If so, do you have suggestions to raise our BPM without breaking the fast? Would adding vegetable protein help? Fiber? Oil? Super green foods like Spirulina, chlorella, barley grass? (We have no other symptoms that normally accompany an irregular low heart beat, but it is quite disconcerting.) Thank you for your help!

    Hi Zigzag, welcome to the group!:)

    I think that there is nothing wrong, but you should write to the nutritionist here on this site to be sure. She probably has the right knowledge to answer this questions. A lot of how our body works changes during the juice fast and usually for the better. Lower BPM is usually better. Athletes have it in the 40's and 50's BPM. So I don't believe you should be alarmed if you don't have any other symptoms.

    Congrats for finishing 9 days already! You should be proud!

    Hi, Happy Juicers. :)



    I am totally out of juice again. I did press the juice out of the pulp from my last carrot/beet juicing and we used that for b'fast and snack. ( Also made a smoothie and had a rainbow salad for lunch.)



    I have stuff in the fridge staged to juice -- both a green juice, and a carrot juice -- but I knew this would be a very busy day and that it would be hard to fit in any more juicing.



    For that matter, I haven't biked yet and it's 9pm. And I missed biking yesterday due to going out early for a lab test and errands/shopping all day (but I got a lot done).



    Today we mowed, so I guess I could count climbing up on the big tractor to mow and walking across the field as a few moments of exercise, lol. Late afternoon and all evening my husband and I were at his office sorting stuff and moving stuff around, trying to decide what he can take along to his new building next month, which is requiring them all to downsize their personal stuff to fit into a very minimalist cubicle instead of private offices! We made good progress but we're both tired.



    Have to listen to my body, and I got only 5 hrs sleep last night, plus a little rest this afternoon. So I guess I'm going to head to an early bed, then I'll just either make a smoothie or resort to Suja or fresh fruit if I'm up very early, then bike as normal, then juice. I may only do the juicing and save the pressing til the next morning, because we have a big project to work on yet another day.



    Life is gonna be like this. But I'm grateful to be getting a lot done, making progress on several fronts, and to be wearing new better-fitting jeans when I go out. I don't feel nearly as fat. That's energizing!

    Popped by to say Hi! I am looking forward to juicing with all of you again this winter. Very busy through November so I can't fit one in and I don't want to do a short one as I find it harder and harder to go in and out of juicing! I need a nice long leisurely juice feast! One where I can juice all my ingredients for one juice at the time of the meal, them at room temperature, no refrigeration so i am not so freezing cold on a winter feast! My Aicok is so easy to clean I don't mind it at all to make the juice of the moment in the moment!

    Day thirteen.



    I went to visit my friend and she was in the middle of preparing dinner. She offered me clear veggie broth and I decided it's only liquid and it is almost the same as juice, so I drank some and it was really good. Then I became hungry and wanted to eat. Argh. :)



    I made it until now and I'm off to bed this very moment.



    Happy juicing! Trust the journey!

    The broths make me hungry too, SunnyRain, at least during the last juice-only fast.

  • Leslie

    5 days ago

    The hunger comes because of the amount of salt in the broth always drink 8 oz of water before a broth, then have 16 oz of water on standby and the moment the feeling of hunger rears it's ugly head start drinking more water. It is common to confuse hunger for thirst when sodium is involved.

    Thanks Leslie, I was thinking the same when I was trying to observe how I felt. It must have been the salt.

    I am new to juicing, so throwing anything in the juicer that I have works for me! I did buy the Juicing recipe book and looked at all the great ideas. But I still like to use whatever I have, as long as it looks nice and green! Lol!
