    I have been facing a lot of minor health problems like heartburn with everything I eat and back pain. I'm too young to have all these issues so I decided I am going to do a 60-day reboot. Today is day one and it wasn't so bad because food just doesn't appeal to me as much because I know once I'm done eating it I will more than likely have heartburn after. I did see some graham crackers and almost forgot I was doing a reboot. I just have to keep in mind why I'm doing it. My family has a history of high blood pressure and diabetes and I don't want either so I need to start taking better care of myself so I'm starting my new year's resolution to be healthy now rather than in January. I know I will feel better about myself and have the energy I need to do all the running around between a full-time job, full-time school, and volunteering. I'm excited about the end result I just need to stay excited about the journey. I know some days are going to be hard but I know if I keep my eye on the prize I will be able to accomplish what I set out to.

    Newbie on day 5 and really LOVING JUICING!



    I'm replacing one meal a day with a fresh juice with veggies and fruit until the 25th when I am going to start the 5-day challenge.










    I was so inspired by Joe's video that my girlfriend showed me a few days ago I went straight at it.



    I wish I had found Joe 3 years ago when my obesity (455 pounds) became a life or death situation. I elected to have Gastric Bypass surgery and it has done wonders but juicing is a HUGE piece of the healthy living / weight loss puzzle for me now.



    The past year has seen some very difficult times for me in many ways but mostly health-wise. The one good thing has been my decision to get healthy and to lose weight. I weighed in at a Doctors appointment today and to me surprise I weigh 269 pounds!!! That is the lowest I have been in over THIRTY YEARS!!!



    I want to get to 245 pounds as I am 6'6" tall. I also started walking more and going to LA Fitness working out with the guidance of a certified trainer. I am LOVING LIFE once again and juicing has me inspired to go further, do more, and make it happen!!!

    I want to get serious about this for the next month to shed a lot of unwanted lbs more quickly. I just got my birth photos back from my doula yesterday (my baby is 14 months) and i was appalled at how heavy I had gotten from pregnancy. My weight gain really shows in pictures. I would like one chin only, please. lol It is really hard to shed the amount I want to lose with healthy food and moderate exercise only - it is SOOO slow and takes time and prep and as a mom of two young ones and a business owner, I am finding little time to focus on the initial weight loss that i want. i figured juicing would be a good plan for 30 days. I also have diastasis recti, the separation of my abdominal muscles and pelvic floor damage from both my pregnancies/births so i am trying to heal that. I am doing a program that specifically focuses on that recovery and for 4 weeks, I am not supposed to exercise heavily as it can negate the work done to heal the abs. So this is a perfect time for me to focus on the juicing without heavy exercise. I will likely juice for 2 meals a day and eat a small, healthy, balanced meal for dinner with my family, like grilled chicken or salmon and veggies, maybe a small sweet potato or something. Question though - should I put fiber powder in my juice (like Miralax) and what kind of supplementation would be helpful in terms of missing nutrients?

    It really helps if you juice only. That way your body doesn't digest food and it has a lot of energy to heal and to establish a balance.

    Also - if you juice a lot of different veggies, you aren't missing any nutrients, you should be getting huge amounts of nutrients. There is also a website, where you can put it everything you juiced and it tells you the nutrition value of your juice and how much of a daily value of a certain vitamin and mineral you got from a juice.

    I am on day 14 and have lost 10 pounds. I am only juicing (though i have had about 3 veggie only meals) and i feel great and am not hungry. I think it is ealier to only juice because i dont have to think about food and then ear too much (one of my biggest problems was eating too much, i love to eat). I dont thing you need any supplements because there is so much good stuff if you are juicing a variety of veggies. I do wonder of you need a little extra protein to help repair your musles though, or add in more of the things that have higher protein. There are a lot of charts online that can tell you how much protein is in the veggies you like. Good luck! You got this!

    I think the hardest part of this for me isn't not eating, it is drinking the juice. I absolutely hate it. I have tried so many recipes and combinations. The best I can do is something that I can get down without gagging. I love that I am getting closer and closer to a healthy weight, but I find the juices simply disgusting.

    Hi Erica_N,

    Eventually your taste pallet will change. How far along are you?

    May I suggest adding some coconut water to dilute the intensity of the juice? I, too, sometimes have trouble getting them down, and would rather "go hungry" than drink more juice... but I find the coconut water really helps. And it's full of great nutrients (potassium, magnesium, calcium, etc), electrolytes and healthy, natural sugars for energy.

    I don't find them disgusting per se but they taste REALLY similar. I seem to throw in whatever I have around so maybe I should really do the recipes instead of a free for all? Does that really make a difference in taste?

  • SunnyRain

    I was doing that too. Adding too much produce at once. Then it just tastes the same and yucky! This time around I tried doing recipes and it's a completely different world! And every other day I found a recipe which I just love and can't get enough of. It's really hard to juice if you hate juices. So you really must to everything possible to find the right juices for you. And I suggest trying with less sorts of produce in one juice.

    My all time favourite: 3 handfuls of spinach + 1 apple + 1 lemon. Amazing. You can also add romaine and cucumber to it, and it's still very good.

    Another great one: 1 huge sweet potato, 4 carrots, 1 apple, 1 orange, a bit of cinnamon.

    And it really makes a difference in taste if you don't just pick up everything you find in the fridge. It's like eating real food. We also don't just throw 7 random items together and call it dinner. It's the same with juices. Some things go great together, some don't. Some taste awful, but if you add something elso to it, than it's completely drinkable.

    Joe has 1 great book with recipes called 101 Recipes, you might want to check that out too.

    Oh no, that dosnt sound fun. Have you tried adding spices to help? Cinnimon is good, and i think it reminds me of sweerness. And a little chilli powder can add spice to distract from the veggie taste. i do think your pallet will eventualy reset though. Heres to hopping that happens soon!

    I'm finishing up DAY 6 (of 50). My head is still a little groggy and my eyes are still dry & bloodshot, but I'm feeling more myself. And I'm already down 7 pounds, so that's nice. But I had a thought – I don't want to get too excited about "when I'm finished fasting" or "how much weight I've lost" because I've realized that juicing has to be a lifestyle for me now. Even when I finish this fast, I plan to juice fast at least one day a week and do a 3 - 5 day reboot every month. And perhaps a longer cleanse once or twice a year.



    I have to stop looking at my life in terms of binging/gaining weight or restricting/losing weight, but rather find a balance that keeps me lean, strong, healthy and happy indefinitely. And while I suspect that I will have to be mindful and vigilant to stay on track with healthy eating my entire life, I am so done with all the wasted energy I spend on the love / hate relationship with my body and abusing myself by overeating sugar. It's time I live my life to my fullest potential. Joe is a great example that we all can do it, not just the fast, but also create a healthy relationship with food - one that is permanent.



    Thank you all for your shares - the wins and the setbacks. Reading these posts is truly inspiring.

    Welcome Dylan - it sounds like you are totally in the groove on Day 3. Your transformation is amazing. I have no doubt adding juicing to your diet will help you shed the little remaining weight. You got this!

    Thanks Kristin. I just wish I had discovered Joe and juicing sooner. Having the bariatric surgery has caused some unwanted side-effects but I believe that juicing is the answer for me. Any advice for this newbie???

  • Kristin

    The best advice I have is to read a couple pages worth of postings on this site/ group. Everyone has shared so many stories, overcome so many obstacles and given so much great advice - any questions or concerns you may have will be put to rest. Wishing you continued success on your fast!!!

    How much juice does everyone drink durring one day? What else do you drink?

  • WorldWide

    4 days ago

    Started with 1 gallon / 4 liters a day. This is important to make sure your body is getting a lot of nutrients and enough calories. After around day 15 or so, there are days when I only drink 3 qts. / liters. I also drink 32oz of water in the morning + herbal teas throughout the day.

    In addition to the juice (I don't keep track of how much - I just have a lot on hand and drink it as I want it), I enjoy herbal tea, bottled coconut water and a little sparkling water. As a treat I'll cut open a fresh coconut and drink the water. YUM! (I am not sure how readily available fresh coconut is across the country / world... I live in Los Angeles and most grocery stores sell them and you can order one at most Thai, raw food or vegetarian restaurants.)
