    I’m starting today. So I’ll have to have a juice during super bowl. That will be hard for me.

    Hi, Kim... welcome! How'd yesterday and the day before go? Let's jump in today.

    I’m going for 60 days. I have to get past super bowl and going to LA for 5 days. Hope to see significant weight loss.

    Sunday morning here. We still have a few juices in the fridge but it'll be gone soon today. I will go buy produce this morning to be juiced today for the carrot/beet mix. Didn't think of it yesterday until it was rather late. Sprouts will open at 7am? No time to make a green juice today, likely. I have some online research to do.

    Glad to be here. My husband, grown son, and nearly grown daughter and I are all juicing together, and nearing the end of day two of a 60 day reboot. So far so good. We all hope for and expect weight loss (me especially - I have a lot to lose), but more than that, my mom heart hopes that this will help my son with his chronic rash that has flared worse than ever before these past several months and has recently spread beyond his arms to his torso, neck, and thighs. He has autism and challenges with impulse control, which means that we are constantly reminding him not to scratch. The steroid creme doesn't help much anymore, and we are hoping to avoid putting him on a lifetime of medication.



    We make a new juice every time, a half gallon at a time, with no leftovers - the only ingredient I dread using is the beets (red and golden). Besides peeling them, does anyone have a favorite beet juice combination to share?

    Ouch, that rash must itch like crazy! I do hope detoxing can help him.

    Beets. I don't peel them, I scrub them and then scrape at the root circumference where it's dirty. I add beets to the carrot juice. Haven't tried to drink it separately. I guess we've also added them to our green juice but I like it in carrot juice so that's where they go. I'm not too fond of golden beets. Dunno why. Just doesn't do what red beets do for me.

    I have a lot of juice in the fridge right now! All one type, though. But it's a good feeling. :)



    This might be helpful to someone here:



    I had a friend who was saying she doesn't have time to juice, so I measured myself, quickly as I could. 5lb bag carrots. From start (opening bag, washing carrots, juicing, and cleanup) to finish. Ten minutes. (Of course the reason I use this old centrifugal is that it's a breeze to clean up. I started a thread to discuss juicers last year if anyone wants to read it, ask. And there's been good discussion since then.)



    My old cheap centrifugal (the second one I've had; it's a Breville look-alike) can easily produce:



    32oz juice from 5 lbs carrots. (Organic carrots go on sale here for $2.98/5lbs and I stock up if I can. Normal price $3.98 at Sprouts.)



    A bunch of celery can yield 16oz on average.



    Yield varies depending on your juicer. Some people I know produce juice as they go and drink it right away. Because my family of three is drinking juice, and because of the nature of our juicing equipment, we tend to store it in bottles and drink until gone, then juice more.



    In watermelon season, it's easy to juice the rind of a large watermelon and produce a lot of green juice with that as a basis. We'd generally get about 5 quarts on watermelon days for the three of us. We load it up with greens and fruit, of course.



    Right now, no one is fasting but my dh and I are drinking a carrot/celery/cuke/beet mix, aiming for two 16oz / day each.



    We try when we can to eek out more yield from our pulp by using the juice press. (I eventually invested in the juice press because I just can NOT tolerate throwing away damp pulp. I'm too thrifty. Of course it takes more time. But it's quiet and pleasant and satisfying!) We can get up to another 40% that way (less when the centrifugal has a good yield and the pulp is dryer). When I make a green juice or whatever, my centrifugal doesn't do well with greens, so I make that many times in the blender or food processor and then just press the slurry -- that way, I get pretty much all the juice that can be got.



    Anyway, maybe the yields will help someone.



    Be well and juice on!

    Hi, Juicers. Been missing due to life, a good many months. Juicing and eating at this point (plant-based).



    Thought I'd post this again...



    It works for me to go out and google "rebootwithjoe" and whatever I'm looking for - lots of times, google will find an article or many on a subject here on site but the search function does not work well here for me.



    Be well and juice on!

    Tomorrow begins my juicing journey. I want to be successful, weight loss would be amazing but more than anything I want my chronic allergies/autoimmune issues to clear up. I want my energy back and I want to feel HUMAN again. I MUST succeed at this, not just for me but for my son, who deserves a happy healthy mom. I know this is going to be hard, so I want to use this forum for support, I am going to need it :)
