    Hello everybody from Poland! It's my 1st day and I'm after Mean Green :D My juicer can't handle squeezing juice from kale, so I blended it. I hope everybody have a nice day:) I'll let you know how I feel after couple days:)

    hey ya'll I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I'm on day 7. I feel really good. Yesterday I was an odd day and I had 6 pieces of pecan and gained 1.2 lbs??:( . When we are finished with our reboot and we start eating are we going to gain it all back? I know when we finish the reboot we eat fruits and veggies and we add them back slowly but now I'm concerned. Does anyone have any info on this? Please



    thanks for any help and support. Hope everyone has a fantastic day



    keep on juicing on

    Yes it's common to gain anywhere from 5 to 10 pounds when you go off the fast because your metabolism is slowed and your digestive system is inactive. So any food you start consuming, your body will hoard it until your body realizes the famine is over and starts revving up the metabolism. Breaking the fast properly can range anywhere from 4 days to 3 weeks, depending on the length of the fast. Here are a couple excerpts from some fasting books I've read:

    "Breaking the fast is the most important part of the process... we have to wake up the digestive system slowly and steadily... One man wrote me and said he fasted for 14 days and broke it with a cheeseburger. He got horribly ill and his stomach swelled up like a balloon... Do not "hurry" things because you think you are ready." This author goes on to explain a detailed daily regimen for ramping digestion back up.

    Fruits, smoothies, sprouts, soup broths and veggies are used to break a fast. Quantity is vitally important. The first day you nibble, "feed yourself like a baby." Take tiny amounts every hour or two to start sending signals to your nervous system that the famine is over. Do not combine foods during this time. Drink lots of water and vegetable juice. This is for the first 2 days.

    Then for the next week you eat the same foods, but increase quantity slowly. Then the week after that, you start introducing more variety - all plant-based of course.

    The longer you fast, the more important it is to wake your body up slowly and gently.

    The ups and downs are the hardest part- you have to account for fluid and weigh once a week while losing, I weigh every day of course but look at Monday to Monday. I used to say- losing or maintaining, today with no loss it occurred to me to change that to losing, maintaining or storing up health credits! Right? I mean- really, I didn't get fat eating this type of food and I'm not going to keep it off until I learn to eat this type of food!

    End of day TWO...whoo! I survived with no solid food whatsoever and three sips of coffee. I could handle the hunger pains from the smell of food (a sip of juice helped there,) but the headache I couldn't hack. Needless to say, I'm glad this day is done and hope day THREE is good to me.

    BTW...after a month of a vegan diet my clothes already fit better. I can't wait to see what juicing has in store for me.



    Happy Juicing :)

    Hi, Glad to have found a support group. I'm aiming to start Wednesday, March 1st, but may start a day early if I get all of my ducks in a row ;-) I've done a 10 day juice cleanse in the past and from what I can remember of it, i felt pretty good energy wise while doing it. I'm aiming for 30 days this time around. I have the Norwalk Juicer that's been sitting pretty on my kitchen counter collecting dust for quite some time now, so I'm excited to start using it again. I cut out coffee a few days ago... and have been cutting back on dairy except goat cheese in preparation for the cleanse. I'm sure the first week will be a challenge with its ups and downs, but I'm SO ready for this!!!

    Today is my first day juicing as well! Started my tourney 2 nights ago by shopping for my fruits and veggies and yesterday I bought my juicer! Had my first ever juice this morning with my son who has said he wants to juice in the mornings with me :) He is 17 and EATS! Hope you have a successful start! All the best to you!

    Oscar's time in Oregon. I know, there are bigger issues in the world, but here I sit NOT eating garbage while I watch. In fact, I had my dinner juice and I am warming up with a big ol' glass of hot water. I can actually say with day 12 mostly behind me, I still feel great and I am pumped to keep going. I even prepped for tomorrow already. I am to the point where I believe I can do 30, or even 60 if I decide to continue. Happy.



    Hope everyone is feeling good today!!

    just remember most of those a listers are on the same plan you are, they do it 2 weeks before oscars so they can look their best, it really is one big celebration after the show ill bet. ill bet they have a huge catering service that brings their juices to them or they do the spa fat farm and get the whole treatment! wonder if the clothing people are kept busy doing alterations til the last minute after they drop some weight??? its a whole thing

    Day TWO...woke up with a headache. Made my way downstairs and looked at my coffeemaker. Sadly made my way to the fridge and poured myself a cup of mostly yellow/orange juice, which I prepared the night before. I have a happy tummy now and should be getting ready here soon to take a two hour drive to see my aunt in the hospital who has been diagnosed with cancer. I haven't traveled with my drinks so this will get me ready for a longer trip next weekend.



    BTW that cup of juice that I sipped while I cooked dinner last night helped. While everyone ate the homemade Pizza I downed another cup of juice, and I was good for the rest of the night.



    Happy juicing everyone!

    Hi Sonya just joined today and working round this site with blinkers at the moment! Wanted to email Joe Cross direct but don't think that is possible? Am making a shopping list for tomorrow and will try to talk to my GP tomorrow as well. I have Bi-polar and anxiety and as there was no mention of mental health on the video i just hope i am doing the right thing?



    Anyway Sonya i wish you all the best for your reboot.......stick with it girl......if it gets too hard go to bed and hibernate until your next juice.



    kind regards



    Caroline from England. x

    I have mental health issues as well, so I know the struggles one can face. My hope in juicing is that the nutrients I will now gain, will help boost my energy levels and give me an overall feeling of "good". My depression, PTSD and anxiety keep me "caged up" for a lack of better words so I am hoping the juicing, eating better ( because my depression makes me not want to eat anything), and light exercise like walking everyday, will help. Good luck and stay kind to yourself!

    Caroline you are doing a great thing for your mental health. You could probably benefit from some high dosage vitamins, like niacin is excellent for depression. Do some research on vitamins good for your condition!

    I'm not really to sure how to start...



    I have an idea, but would like to know what a typical day would look like for you all to ensure i'm doing this correctly.

    Hi beautiful community! I saw the documentary three days ago and started my juice cleanse the next day. Hehe I wouldn't have done it if it weren't for this big hard painful lump on my neck that's been there since July last year, two months after my late husband committed suicide. I've been vegan for about 5 years now since I was 22 and I've been pretty healthy overall except for this lump which I'm determined to vanquish through the power of juice cleansing! I'm only on day 2 but I've already caved and eaten an avocado shmeared on lettuce leaves. I must say I'm not even mad about it! This journey may even inspire me to go raw vegan! I'm not going to dismiss it, I'm feeling very weak and somewhat crummy but at the same time feeling really good about myself for taking charge! Anyway, thank you so much for the support community! Congrats to everyone crushing it :) You're all very inspiring!!!

    My son keeps calling this a diet, I keep correcting him. Because in my mind I am not dieting, I am making a lifestyle change and better, healthier choices. So, you will have those cravings, you will have those days where you eat vs juice... like in the movie, Joe said that if you eat something one day...over indulge, balance it out the next day. Remember to be kind to yourself....
