    Lilly, I left you a note on Jennifer's thread. Sorry I didn't save a link. The site will notify if it's a discussion but not if it's a reply on a group wall, I think... so notifying you it's there this way. :) Hang in there! Do not allow youreslf to listen to discouraging thoughts!



    4fasting, so glad to see a veteran here! You have been around the reboot block! TY TY for joining with us!



    TY for all the well wishes. I am hanging in here but not juicing, not staying out of bed. Mainly my stomach aches or my abdomen and I get nauseous when up. If I am not better by Monday, I will call my new internist. I have a long term difference with most allopathic docs who just see things differently than I do, but went looking this Summer and finally found a couple I think are decent and reasonable, even if they don't know anything about nutrition... not expecting that from them. (Manage expectations!)

    I hope you are feeling better, Souse! I hope your visit with your new MDs, if you go, ends with a diagnosis that helps you treat your symptoms. In my experience, MDs vary so much in specialty, experience, knowledge and ability. very frustrating.

    Good morning juicers. I'm on day three of my fast and this is my favorite day of a fast because I know after day three, I've generally lost the cravings. I'm doing great and have a terrific scale that is tracking my weight loss as well as muscle/fat and water. I'm planning this fast for 30 days but I'll decide at the 30 day mark. This morning I'm craving a carb meal, but I've learned just to breath deeply, relax and just enjoy the fast!



    Daniel: congratulations on your fast! I use glass mason jars (if not traveling) and a steel vacuum thermos if out of the house. I always carry juice with me. The mason jars hold 3 cups (24 oz) and usually finish three by the end of the day, so that's 72 oz. I believe that amount is within Joe's parameters. I usually have lots of energy and sleep better when I fast, especially after the third day. The longest I have fasted is for forty days and I maintained high energy throughout. You'll do great! If you are temporarily tired allow yourself some beauty rest!



    Soose: I am so glad you are here. You contribute regularly and I'm seeking consistent support (and willing to give it) throughout this journey. Sorry you are under the weather...treat yourself well!



    Lilly: Yea! Inactive groups are discouraging. I'm in the same boat so I'm hoping this thread will be posting. I'd love to have a couple of partners checking in daily. Join me!



    Annas: Good work...one week! You are doing something similar to my projected transition back to food at the end of my fast. I've been vegan and whole foods for decades, but I'm still chunky. Knowing my body, I'll take time to transition out of the fast then have one raw fruit meal and one raw veggie meal a day incorporating IF and include a one-three day fast per week until I reach goal weight. I am doing this for several reasons but need to do the long-haul work to get the job done. You are doing great! Have you noticed a slow down in weight loss since returning to food?

    Hi, 4Fasting! Thanks for posting. I'm feeling rather lost today. read some disturbing biology facts last night -- and became quite discouraged. one day at a time until i hit a brick wall, i guess. it seemds they don't even have a part-time site manager or they would get rid of the old inactive groups. plus, anyone else see those people posting about sports? what is that? i'm afraid to click on those... i'm not used to community sites. yet sure am glad for Soose and you and my reboot coach!

    Good morning and hello juice buds. I have been missing in action a few days here.



    Under the weather and in bed. I am going to try to stay up some hours today. I've not been able to juice much or get much down but I did go ahead and press some of the pulp I had set in the fridge yesterday for carrot and beet juice and other than that my family has been bringing me what I thought I could tolerate like smoothies. I have managed to keep down 8 oz of a berry smoothie this morning. This has accelerated the weight loss but I'm not claiming credit for it and if I start consuming food again, juice I expect it to come back. Not the way to lose weight LOL. Not worried at all. Just making sure my mind knows that ahead of time.



    Be well and juice on!

    Morning, Juicers! :) I have just posted my new weight loss tracker graph over on Happy Juicers group...



    Weight Loss Oct 29th



    I am pleased but a little in shock. But more thoughts over on that post, not to repeat myself.



    Today I plan to juice a carrot/beet mix. The green juice from 2 days ago seems to be very slightly going off this morning. :( Usually it lasts a good 3 days. There's just the very faintest taste behind it all. Sigh. I guess I didn't get it refrigerated soon enough this time, though I didn't think I waited too long. Now that I think of it, it was in a gallon dispenser rather than individual bottles so exposed to more air -- but usually we still don't have a problem with it lasting two more mornings past production morning. Oh, well.



    Busy busy here. Lots going on. But as always healthy eating is my first priority on the list.

    Hello, Juicers! Sorry I've been missing a couple of days. I am all set up to juice come morning. I have a huge pile of green produce draining after soaking. A bag of carrots soaking now, and bunches of celery. And I will scrub up a small seedless watermelon. They're off season but were small enough I could afford one.



    I will likely juice today and press pulp tomorrow. Either way, we're all set for 3 days of juice!



    Be well, and juice on!

    Hello together



    My name is Daniel and I'm swiss. I'm 21 years old and want to make a reboot for a loooong time ago. I have about 22lb overwight, a varicose vein in my left leg and very little energy. My biggest problem is my low energy level, because it makes my life much harder. At school and at home it's very difficult for me to keep up and to do anything.



    But from tomorrow, i will finish with my old and unhealthy life.



    But first, I have some questions about the reboot.



    1. How much Juice do you drink per day? (Joes book says, you should drink about 4 juices a day)



    2. Can i store the juice in a steel thermos or does the metal harm the juice? Or is this effect negligible? That's a big problem for me, beacuse i can't cool my juice at school. I'll put ice cubes in my juice to keep cool.



    3. Does anyone of you have significantly more energy or better concentration by rebooting?



    I'm very happy and lucky to be here with people like you, who want to change there life into something better. :-)



    With friendly and juicy greetings



    Daniel :)



    Edit: Sorry for my upgradeable english. :P

    Hi, Daniel. Your English is fine. :)

    1. I think Joe's book says 4 to 6 juices / day. And those are 16-20 oz? But you should drink enough to begin with that you aren't suffering. (In my opinion.) Also drink your water, and they add in coconut water and broth. But I'm not expert. When we are going juice only, we drink as much as we want/need to make it thru until it becomes easy.

    2. Stainless thermos? Juice should be okay in stainless, right?

    Do you have an insulated bag and some "blue ice" ? You could pack your bottles in that cooler along with the blue ice, which you have frozen the night before. ( Do you have blue ice or call it something else? I carry them in my insulated shopping bag to bring home frozen foods from the store. I also pack them in my cooler to take juice with me thru the day. It stays cold. There are also instructions on making blue ice online. )

    3. I'm getting a LOT more done now than I was before starting this reboot. Productivity is many times more. And I feel hopeful about the future. And willing to do what I've got to continue to do to be healthy.

    Welcome, Daniel! Congrats on starting your reboot!

    Hey Soose, nice to meet you. :-)

    Thx, but the google translator helped me a lot. :P

    1. Yes you're right. Per day at least 4 juices a 500ml / 16-20 oz. I'll do it the way you said. Yesterday at lunch i have drunk 17 oz of carrot juice and in the evening 17 oz of beetroot, carrots and 2 peaches. Unfortunately, i ate some unhealthy stuff, but from today, i will only drink juice and water.

    Today, i can make some juice first in the evening. I will make these juices:

    -17 oz / 500ml juice only with carrots.

    -17 oz / 500ml juice made out of beetroot, carrots and 2 peaches.

    And 1 or 2 other juices with some green vegetables.

    2. Thank you for your opinion in this question. I will make it the way you said. The insulated bags, that we have, are too big, so i need to purchase a good one which is smaller. But your idea with the insulated bag and the blue ice is very good. I will try it. So can i cool the juice the whole day. :-)

    3. Wow, impressive! That's exactly that, what i wanted to hear and what i need. Your descriptions give me a lot of motivation. I hope that i can make the same experience like you. :-D

    I hope you had a good morning with lots of juices. ;-)

    Another question on the sidelines, how much juice do you get from 1 pound / 500gr of carrots? With my juicer, i get half the weight of juice.

  • Soose

    A broken juicer! What happened, Annas? And how are you doing?

    We finished off the carrot juice so I got up and juiced green this morning...
    Lacinato Kale, celery, cukes, pears, lemons, and some blueberry/cranberry juice added to it.

  • Annas

    I don t know!!! but my mom lent me one. Today is day 3 and im feeling great, despite a big pimple in my nose (i think they are toxins coming out)

    I have a green juice this morning (romaine,cucumber,celery,green apples and ginger)

    I belive my juicer broke because of the kale. Can your juicer process it well?

  • Soose

    1 month ago

    Annas, all my juicers have handled kale well. (Kale stalks have a lot of liquid, btw. I've heard some people here soak their produce first to make sure it's hydrated before juicing. Interesting.)

    Glad your mom could loan you a juicer! Even if you don't have a juicer, you can blend (or process) and strain for juice. See this thread I created. I still did my green juice this way mostly yesterday because I like the higher yield with greens. It's not really that much longer in time with some type of mesh bag, and after I got a big flat pan with a hole in it to drain the juice off (see photos), it really made it easier ... Don't Have a Juicer Yet?

    Today I made carrot/cuke/celery/apple juice. Some of it was from pressing the pulp from juicing carrots on Sat morning. So this batch is on its last day even though I just pressed it this morning. (It's ok, it'll be consumed.)



    Absolutely must go to the store today. Keep saying I'll go and not getting out.

    Today is day 2! Done several reboots, but have been battling my mind the last few years and dong the opposite of what I want to do and what I know makes me feel good. (allows my thoughts to rule instead of my heart). I am aware that negative believes about self and self-criticism is what have kept me from taking care of myself. I am asking for help. I also have the believe that I have to do everything by myself and I realize I need to be open to help and support from others. So here I am....again....I am asking for help from this physical reality but also from the non-physical.

    Hi, Starshower. Welcome!

    Interestingly, I was just watching a guy named Bruce Lipton (of epigentics fame - we are not our genetics, we are our environment). He's on Youtube, and explains how the subconscious program is running the show almost all the time, and that's what has been recorded through observation in the first 7 years of life. And he says it's 70% negative, self-defeating, limiting, etc.. I also see where he mentions listening to positive stuff just before falling asleep to reprogram that subconscious. What we believe will be what we do in our lives -- did I get that right?

    I really like your chosen name, and think you are headed for the Stars! Congrats on Day 2!
