    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.

    I had celery, mean green, and now a beet juice. I fear I’m drinking too much juice per day—about 1200 calories. Am I drinking too much?

    Are you doing a fast? If so what day are you on?

    I juiced green lemonade this morning and it was SO GOOD. Everyone had a serving, I had two, and I have another bottle in the fridge. Heavy on the cukes today.



    I've always wondered about the nutritional value of cukes compared to other veg, just using them to create volume (and same with watermelon peel/rind) but I saw someone on youtube who is recovering from a bad illness thru nutrition/lifestyle -- he uses cukes every day, and was going on about the nutritional content of the peels.

    Hello, I just received my juicer today in the mail. I was looking for it to arrive tomorrow. However, I will start juicing tomorrow. Is there a particular plan we should follow to lose weight and reduce inflammation or just try and locate recipes from somewhere?




    Hi, Four4mat! Welcome.



    Joe used to publish a 3 day and a 15 day reboot plan as a pdf... someone passed one along to me and I found the other on the site. I can pass them along to you if you'll send me an email address. Click on my name (Soose) and this time send me a message with a gmail or hotmail or whatever. Include an email address and I'll reply with those two plans. There are a lot of good hints in the pdf's as well as a few recipes. Of course his book has the same info, I'm sure. (It's around here somewhere.)



    For more recipes, there are many on this site. (Or there were -- they're undergoing a website rework right now.) Or you can go to https://juicerecipes.com/build and there's also an ingredients tab where you can tell them what ingredients you have and look for recipes. Ginger is great for inflammation, btw. Turmeric - there are juices with turmeric. If you will google the terms inflammation and "rebootwithjoe.com" you will likely get some articles written here on site by Joe or the nutritionist on the subject.



    If you don't know what juices you like, it's not a bad idea to juice bits of the fruit/veg separately to begin with, and taste them and even combine them in little bits. Saves making a whole juice and finding you don't like it due to one ingredient.



    HTH, Soose -- and see you on the group wall!

    I overslept! But I still got into the kitchen and juiced green again this morning - except it was red with the beet green stems. I really like my green juices GREEN nowadays. C'est la vie. Also drank half a carrot/beet juice so far and sent some with my dh to work, and bottled some for my ds later. More carrot/beet later for me, too.



    I'm heading to Sprouts myself today, so must make a list and look at space in the fridge.

    I forgot to say that juicing ginger root is on my list today. I add it to soda with stevia and sometimes berry puree for a sparkling drink. I'll grind it in the food processor, easy peasy, and press it or strain it in a nut milk type bag. Bottle it for the fridge.

    I have to go to a group meeting tonight -- right at people's dinner time, 6pm here -- and the foods they brought last time were anything but health-conscious! And standard yucky sugary sodas or diet... SAD. So tonight it's self protection. I'm taking the makings for berry gingerale. And a bit of offerings for the table that are healthier, and could be juiced.

    Hi! I am back! starting juicing through the thyroid reboot. so glad to hear you sounding so well, Soose!! I'm going to recommend this group to others in the reboot. i wish i liked stevia. that aftertaste really knocks me over. but your ginger drink thing has my thinking. i like cucumber-berry water, but i bet it would be great with ginger in it. thanks, Soose! you are amazing.

    Morning Juice Challengers! Who's rebooting? Waiting to see check-ins of Day ___ etc.!



    My family of 3 met last night and decided it's time to resume our reboot of last year. ( None of us is going juice-only yet. That time will come. We're cleaning up the food and ramping up the juice. Transition mode. Each at their own needs for now. )



    Started a new ticker, entered my starting weight yesterday. I am here for the long haul!



    In the fridge I have the large batch of carrot/beet juice from yesterday. Not going to juice carrots again until Thursday, so we'll divvy that out. And this morning I made a green lemonade on the fly for b'fast and split it between the three of us.



    So yummy! I am really craving the juice, and the green juice and the beet / red juice in particular. Well, anything fresh! I'm grateful to be back to juicing more on the fly and just drinking it! Haven't been able to do that for a few months. Hope to continue all this week!

    Day 1:



    I have done fasts before and after dived back into terrible habits. Attempting to do it right this time. I started to juice 2 days ago and wean myself off coffee. Had a horrendous headache first day, yesterday not so bad, and today just a small tinge of headache. I am very addicted to coffee. It is my worst vise at the moment.



    Today is the first official day and not doing to bad. It always is the worst for me at the end of the day when I am home and need to make the kids something to eat and then I want to eat!



    Wish me luck!

    I am on day 2 of the 60 day Reboot for Thyroid. I have been on 2 different rounds of antibiotics this month for sinus infections, ear infections, bronchitis....I'm tired of being sick and tired! Hoping to reboot my system so I can have a healthy enjoyable summer!

    I am glad to see we have extra juice in the fridge today, because I woke really craving the fresh taste today, as soon as I got up. Plenty for tomorrow, too, a juicing day.



    Breakfast. I do sometimes still use quart mason jars since my husband and I split them between us, and I bought a pour-spigot that replaces the wide mouth top. Today I discovered a flaw only in that it's lying in the sink to be washed. So I free-handed the pouring without a drop spilled (this time!), lol. The flaw being that it has to be washed and available or I'd have to buy more which would be more clutter. Easily fixed. Actually I will choose to wash it rather than clutter my drawers with more than one.



    Another reason I love my new 14oz milk bottles! Wondering if Jillha looked at the milk bottles and found something for herself other than mason jars?

    Guys I am in 60 day reboot and today is my 5 th day I couldn’t resist the craving and I had fried rice I feel very very very guilt. What should I do? Please advise.

  • Soose

    Aww Ashjay, this pales in the bigger picture. At most, you've set yourself some cravings later and delayed your detoxing by a digestive cycle... Your body is already detoxing that.

    Keep rebooting. Juice with a passion. Examine what you can do to prevent another crave-in. (Enough juice? Broth? Tired? Putting yourself in harm's way? Etc.) Make a strategy and learn from it.

    Watch Joe's movies this weekend.

    And look at where you are gonna be in a few weeks... Do you want it?! You can have it!

    Be well and juice on. HTH.
