    Hi Traci, commenting on your post didn't work, so I'll put it here:



    I have also found that I don't get as much juice as the recipes suggest. I do double up or generally put in more.

    I have noticed that when i make carrot apple and giner i do not yield 2 servings, should i be doubling up on ingredients ?

    If you are already thin you may not have anything to lose! I'm in my 50s and I lose infinitely slower than I did in my 30s and 40s. I have to do a 30 day just to lose 10 lbs.

    Any good way to tell a very traditional family that you will not be partaking in Easter dinner due to being on a fast?



    They see that I have been making juices but it is such a sensitive topic fasting. I get the look like I am crazy or doing harm to myself.

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome back & wishes, Soose!



    Love those bottles of yours! What a handy size and it's great to know you haven't had issues with leaking.



    Thank you for all you are sharing with the group... I'm enjoying and feeling very inspired. Looking forward to starting my reboot on Saturday!



    Wishing you continued success!

    I juiced green this morning and have carrot/beet leftover in the fridge for this morning. This afternoon will be a juicing day for carrots/beets/cukes/cukes -- making a 3 day supply. ( We juice bigger on Sunday and Thursday afternoon/evenings.)



    We are not juice-only right now so we also do salads and soups ETL style. Have made real improvements in those departments this week, too.



    When we go back to juice only, we'll have to produce the amount of juice we do for 3 days -- daily. (If all in the family - 3- go juice only at the same time.) We were able to do it last year, so we know the drill. Tried a lot of diff ways of stowing it in the fridge at the time.



    Anyway, I get ahead of myself. For now, juice needs are taken care of. And the food my guys are eating is also improved.

    Am brand spanking new here and reading some posts. My husband and I are actually waiting for our juicer lol and trying to decide where to start. I'm thinking we will try similar to what you mentioned..juicing with salads and soups to introduce the process and see how we do. How long have you been doing juicing? Anyway...good to see what others are doing and I like the idea of saving juice as needed especially with working full time :)

    Hello All!



    I'm Cam from Cali and am gearing up to start a 30 day juice-only reboot this Saturday.



    I've been psyching myself up for it by reading on the forum and came across this thread ~ how fortuitous!



    This is actually my 2nd 30 day reboot - the 1st was over a year ago - so I have a couple tips I can share..



    Firstly - play with the amount of lemon in your juice. This made ALL the difference in the world for me as far as the juice being palatable. My drinks went from horrendous to truly delicious. Apparently I like my juice on the tarter side!



    2nd tip - If I felt tempted to eat (or tortured by thought/sight/smell of food) I knew it was time for a juice. Once I drank it, it was easy to say "no thanks" to easy access goodies or food offerings.



    3rd tip - Quart size mason jar in a small lunch tote with slim ice pack made a for great way to make sure I wasn't tempted on the road.



    The first time tho', I did not lose any weight to speak of after 30 days (and I didn't cheat!), so I'm hoping that this time around, by tweaking my greens-to-fruit ratio and adding more water to my regimen, it will help me be more successful in that regard.



    I did feel amazing tho and really look forward to that again!



    I will post once I have completed Day 1.



    Good luck to everyone!!

    Welcome back, CosmicMama aka Cam! Good health with your reboot! :) Thanks for the hints.

    I have posted here about my new (well, couple of months?) bottles for juicing. I bought something called milk bottles from a restaurant supply house online. When I got them, my sister recognized them and said in kindergarten decades ago we used to get our milk in little tiny bottles just like this. Probably the 6oz ones. I am telling my age because I am sure by the time I was in elementary school, milks came in cartons.

    We use the quart wide mouth mason jars too, but anyway, let me find a link to them, because I have looked for many years for a good GLASS portable milk bottle... https://www.webstaurantstore.com/search/milk-bott... I bought the 14oz ones and they are working great both at home and to take like you say in a cooler bag to work (my dh). We haven't had any spills from them and are liking pulling just one serving out of the fridge.

    Day 3



    Took the day off yesterday and had lunch with my daughter at school. Took a bottle of juice and all the kids were asking me questions. It was cute. My daughter had some with me but no one else was willing to try. I think I may be over my hump of headache and being majorly hungry. Still hungry just not as bad and not as angry about it. But the true test is in the evening when I really want to eat. Routine is a B. I normally would eat with the kids and enjoy the evening making the change to not eating is a bit of a stress but I am working through it and making a new normal.

    MissyDawn, glad you were able to have lunch with your daughter. Good for her drinking it! I pale to think of what they are serving kids in school. I bet if it were St Patrick Day, almost all the kids except the pickiest would try green drinks. ( I remember being served a green beer decades ago on a trip and we all drank it. lol ) In fact if we turned them loose with food colorings and some type of food or drink they like, most of them would have a high old time, kids being kids! Oh, and I am remembering the movie Hook and the colorful foods. :)

    It occurs to me as you talk about evenings that if you prepped the kids' dinner into prepared plates or something in the mornings -- well, I think it would be easier on me. My son is grown so I don't have to cook for little's anymore. He doesn't like juicing but he'll make other healthy stuff for us. And he'll drink the green juices.
