    Mizmo, re clicking like button, that line has a "flag as inappropriate" on the right side and sometimes the word inappropriate wraps up under the word like. You have to be really careful not to hit the word inappropriate instead because it will flag someone as spam when you are trying to like them and there's no way to go back from that. People have gotten deleted by mistake and lost all of their posts.

    I just made juice without peeling the cucumber and I don't like it. It has a strong aftertaste.

    but there is nothing mandatory about cucumbers is there? I say juice what you like. How about zucchini by the way? Some people substitute. I prefer the clean cucumbers butt zucchini is a little too creamy for me in a juice

    sometimes I hit "like" and it says underneath it "inappropriate". What's that mean?

    Welcome, AshJay. Congrats on starting the reboot. Don't give up yet!!!



    Mizmo has a point in that your body might be detoxing the first few days. It also might be personal taste or sensibilities or even a food sensitivity or intolerance (as there are a few ingredients I just can't stomach while others crave them and that happens to some folks)... You may need to start out really milder with some ingredients; some people especially have trouble with the green content being too strong at first, which likely IS a detox reaction -- but you start smaller and/or with much milder stuff, and build up tolerance to it. Definitely your body will change as you reboot.



    Can you tell us what juices you are making that you don't like, so we get a clue if there's anything we can recommend with your actual ingredients you're using?



    (I'm remembering a thread of posts where members recommended how to modify the taste of the juices in various ways. I'll try to remember. Some find that simple modifications like adding sweetness or lemons to a juice, etc., make it palatable. Veteran juicers suggested ways of modifying juices. It's been sometime last year and I may not be able to find it but we could ask again.)



    And can you tell us what produce in your normal diet you haven't had any problems with? Do you eat carrots? Apples? celery? a particular kind of lettuce in a salad? Do you like lemony or limey things? Oranges? Melons? etc... Give us a nice list.



    If you aren't wild about something but can eat it and it's fresh produce, then say that, too, please.



    You do not want to or have to puke! You can find recipes or at least ingredients for juice you DO like. Just don't give up right at the start.



    Since you are motivated to enjoy juices, you'll put some effort into discovering what will fit your palate during this first period. Sixty days is a long time, and there's every hope that you will like juice well before that end but I think you're going to have to experiment.



    Meanwhile, can I suggest a first way to experiment? Don't mix up a whole recipe and try to drink it down, while almost puking. Instead, taste and/or juice the individual ingredients separately -- in little bits first. Even just chew what you can to taste the juice. Then you might move to mixing the juice of two ingredients in a teaspoon or tablespoon to see what they're like together. If you find something you can tolerate, let us know and we might suggest a recipe.



    [ BTW, Mizmo pointed you to the discountjuicers site and this site has lots of recipes... and I have liked the juice builder at juicerecipes.com which also gives you an idea of ratios of fruit to veg, and has the ability to search recipes if you tell them what ingredients you have to juice. ]



    HTH.

    Thank you so much I didn't like the taste of Joes Mean Green but the link you shared has details to have add on to make it taste good.Thank you again for adivice..Juice on!!!!

    Discountjuicers.com on youtube has a lot of recipes. The juices always taste best right after they're juiced. Sitting in fridge makes them not taste as fresh. Maybe your tastebuds need to get rid of the bad foods to appreciate the good nutrition getting into the system? It always takes me a few days to detox before I appreciate what the juice gives me..

    Nat B are you here yet? You asked on a discussion elsewhere what greens we use... repeating it here in case you come here instead of there...



    Be well and juice on! Soose



    -----------------------------------------------------



    Nat B, I use what I can get... at Sprouts near my house usually.



    Romaine is considered mild.



    I get dandelion greens (don't use the red dandelions myself, either I didn't like them or they gave me problems, don't remember?).



    I don't like mustard and turnip greens, though mustards are supposed to be good for inflammation if I remember? Too spicey for me, could only take tiny bits so I don't like to buy a whole bunch and waste it.



    I don't like arugula but some crave it. It smells bad to me; I listen to that.



    Parsley - I like it and it's great detox.



    Beet greens -- buy the beets and use the greens or eat in salads. I prefer red and think my body craves them. Gold beets really do nothing for me and the rainbow/white or stripey ones as well... but the greens seem the same with any color. I look at them as free greens because I buy the beet roots in bunches for less than buying them without greens.



    Some here use fennel and I've tried it and bok choy.



    Don't forget cabbages - some juices have that in them.



    Last Summer as a cost aide, I bought a good bit of watermelons on sale, and stripped the red fruit for others to eat. I juiced the rind to add volume, as a sort of carrier for our green juices. (We had 3 here on juice fasting at a time.)



    Don't forget you're getting greens in the peels of cukes for instance. Some people use broccoli.



    Oh, and we add a pound of green beans to green juices sometimes -- I tried adding 2 lbs once and it was too much.



    Really, amongst what I add in, I just cram as much in there as I can get in to green juices.



    See you over on the groups, hopefully.

    for those that have juiced for more than a week do you take any supplements or extra protein?

  • Soose

    2 months ago

    Joe's site/plan says 15 days start adding protein? I've also seen some add a tad of salt. I googled offsite using "rebootwithjoe.com" and "add protein" -- that seems to be the best way to get to the articles and there are a lot on this site that give the official view of things, written by him or by the nutritionist...

    YMMV and there are other articles to read - just google.
