    Morning, juicers. When I find myself wondering WHY I keep trying to do this, it really helps to reflect on some of the success stories. There are always people here who have come in near the same time I did who have stuck with it consistently and they have amazing results in a very few weeks. Absolutely astounding and awesome. Hang in there for your miracle!

    Starting tomorrow and aiming to do at least 21 days, Ideally the whole 30 days. I am a bit scared and excited. It's time to lose this weight.



    My ultimate goals is to lose 55lbs . but hoping to lose a pound a day during the juice cleanse

    Good luck! I'm on day 3 & its not as hard as I thought it would be. Not that its easy! I'm just waiting cause i know the really hard part is coming. (Or I suspect it's coming). It's really hard making meals for my kids. I'm a lil grouchy and at the point that i think, "why am I doing this if its making me unhappy". I'm trying to think of the 5 lbs I've lost so far. And i guess I'm supposed to start feeling good at some point. I'm waiting on that!

    I read that the first 3days are the worst because of detox symptoms. So you have are already doing great. 5lbs is amazing , defiantly motivating me for my first day tomorrow. Keep on keeping on. We can do it! :)

    Okay, day 2 is a little harder. Morning was okay, no coffee. But by the afternoon, the hunger pains start.And I’m grouchy. I had to make dinner for my kids and never thought I’d be impressed with BBQ’d chicken thighs, but it smelled awesome. I “cheated” with a small handful of raw almonds and ate most of an avocado before bed (all plant). That’s okay, right? I feel guilty even admitting that here. I know the next couple days will be hard. I hope I can make it. My short-term goal is 7 days.

    don't feel bad i do that every night with a raddish, my mind just needs to know i can still chew i think…

    I figured out that if i would start liking the cravings be seeing them like my stomach feeding off my fat I managed to find them funny and to send my brain the message that this is ok as a feeling.

    and you know their is no such thing as doing bad the only thing i figured by now is that feeling bad about it is bad and will make your body want to kkep it in but if you accept the path you choose then your body will follow

    lol don’t look at it as cheating because it’s not almonds and an avocado is no big deal they are both healthy for you so don’t beat yourself up too bad I think your doing great being that your only on day 2 just keep up the good work

    Hello All! Starting My 28 days of juicing on Tuesday! My new juicer arrives in the mail TOMORROW! I'm SO excited! I bought Reboot with Joe and I'm ready to rock and roll!!! Any tips for beginners?

  • JuiceGuyAshketchum

    the first couple of days will be challenging just keep that in mind but don’t let your gut get to you if that makes sense because it’s going to scream and scream at you for food and all you have to do is satisfy it with some juice if that makes sense

    Welcome, to those new or returning, and maybe you'd be interested in showing us your juicing setup? We already have a few with photos. You can do it here, but if you'd put it on this other thread, we can build. I remember how HARD it was to select a juicer, and not just the first time! Many diff ways of juicing (and I'm a bit on one extreme side of the bell curve, since I am not currently using my all in one juicer, but a blender and then a separate juice press, lol, which IS NOT for everybody). Some really good juicers exist.



    If you have a juicer you really like, do share! SHOW MY JUICING SETUP

    Morning, Juice Buds. :) I cleaned out my fridge yesterday, expecting to drink the last of my juice, and some had gone fermented! So now that I'm juicing even more, and given the variable juice-drinkers here (and my newly acquired over-enthusiasm for watermelon juicing, lol), I will put in place the same method I use for dating jars of beans and soups and such in my fridge. In case anyone else might use something similar. Or do tell if you have a different method that works for YOU. (YMMV.)



    Meanwhile, I have too much watermelon to juice and don't need too much sweet. SO this morning I tried something new and I am happy with it. I cut all but about 1/2" of the inner red fruit off, chunked that up in the fridge for others. That left me with the rind and a coating of red fruit. That has generated a lot of juice still, but less sweet. I'm happy with the results, very mildly sweet, and plan to not only drink the juice but use it in my blender instead of water when I'm making more green drinks (which I then put thru the juice press). I have not looked up nutritional values for watermelon, though it would be skewed if it wasn't talking about the rind.



    I will be more restrained about buying watermelons for juicing from here on thru the Summer. lol Anyway...



    ----- My method for dating jars in fridge...



    I've tried several systems including buying some type of stick on label from The Container Store meant for jars. (Turns out they were too hard to erase with the provided pen. Dry erase stickers would work better -- I use that for my bulk grains and beans. But for my jars, I do the following.)




    I collect and label ALL my jar lids in permanent marker. A1, A2, etc.. ( Normal small mason jar lids get an "S1, S2, S3..." etc.; and Wide lids get "W1, w2, w3..." etc.; I use peanut butter jars from long ago, wide-mouthed, and they get a "P1..." etc.. )



    When I make a batch of something, I grab whatever clean lids out of the drawer and then quickly put a post-it on the fridge front for this batch: date, contents, and jar contents. "May 20 Sunday -- Black beans -- L4, L6, S3, S9, S5." When I grab a jar "s3" out of the fridge, if there's any doubt of whether it's good or not, I can quickly find S3 and know that these black beans are still in date. Every now and then I clear off the post-its. They're obviously out of date.




    For juice, I thought of using a tag on a hanger for the neck of the bottle, but I don't have any right now, plus that won't work with all my jars, and I would have to label each bottle separately instead of write it once on one post-it. I also thought of making some little caps or something for bottles. I can think of lots of things. lol What do you do? I think it was AZJoey who just used a 2 gallon dispenser in the fridge with all the juice? And that worked for them! Might work for me. I've been contemplating it since I saw it. But right now, I have my recipes separated in the fridge into separate jars. :)
