    Thanks Kristin for your kind words and motivating talk! :-) I'm still with it for my "new" Day 1. My juices today have been pretty decent. I am craving going and getting some random junky food though... Finding it challenging to live up to the 80/20 rule, since the fruits are more juicy/juice-producing, plus needed in pretty generous proportions to make the veggies yummy. I'm probably hitting more 60/40 or 50/50 but I keep throwing in a cucumber here and celery there to veggie it up a bit. Glad to hear your Day 4 is getting you more in the groove!!

    Hey, Ellie! I'm glad to hear that your "new Day 1" is going well! You know, I don't stick to that 80/20 rule either. Everyone juices differently and maybe the 80/20 rule is something that you and will ease into during our juice fast. Keep up the good work! I look forward to hearing more about your progress.

    Ohhh boy, yesterday was officially Day 1 and another fail... :-( My first 2 juices of the day were fine and I was on track. Then my 3rd juice had a fiasco. I was doing the "Fenne-tastic" recipe, and (thought) I juiced 2 leeks. I don't know what happened, the "Leek" tag was still on it from the grocery store, but it seems perhaps it was not a leek? As I juiced, it smelled strongly of onion but I've never used fennel before so I thought, well, must smell like onion but taste like licorice, weird. As I started to drink, I approached it with "I don't think I'll love this from the smell, so chug it down so it goes quickly." It burned my throat, chest, eyes, etc., and only lasted inside for about 30 seconds before it all came up... repeatedly! It felt like I had drunk pure onion juice and I reeked of onions from the inside out all the way until now, the next morning. I felt so nauseated and weak that I ate a large salad. But then since I broke the fast (and felt nervous to juice anything else), out of guilt and stress, once my stomach settled down in the evening, I overate turkey wraps, then cheese slices, then peanut butter and chocolate chips (my homemade Reeses Cup mashup). Now this morning I want to get back on the juicing plan, but I feel so discouraged (and nervous to go back to trusting the juicing process, tasting things unfamiliar to me)! Any advice?

    UPDATE 10am: I went ahead and juiced again. Started my day with the hot water, lemon and ginger. Then made a "Warrior Princess" MINUS THE LEEKS LOL!!! I substituted a handful of parsley, as well as 2 beets with beet greens, in order to keep some veggie in there. Not too bad, but my stomach is still remembering the explosive rejection of yesterday's juice issue, so I'm drinking it nice and slow. Man, I just want to dig into some comfort food, this is going to be challenging at first!

    OMG you poor thing. I can't imagine drinking juiced onions! How awful. The good news is your "binge" doesn't sound like it was that bad... it could've been a lot worse. And I'm glad to hear you started again today - NICE! Be gentle with yourself... I find hot herbal tea can be very comforting. And the ginger was a great idea to settle your tummy. You can get thru this! I am starting day 4 and I feel MUCH better this morning. My first 3 days I felt like a zombie. SO just stick it out - it'll get easier : )

    So I am happy to report I am finishing up Day 3. I've been surprised by the fact that I haven't felt super hungry or headachy, but I am for sure in a deep FOG. I attended a baby shower, and I could barely stay sitting up in the chair. It was nearly impossible to have a conversation - my brain just couldn't form thoughts or sentences. It was all I could do to pretend to be cognizant.



    And, while I am glad to be fasting, I am already totally sick of juice. UGH - not sure how I am going to get it down for 50 days, but I am determined.



    Wishing everyone success! xo, K

    It definitely gets easier the longer you go. Day 7 was the Ah Hah moment day for me when I knew I was in control. You'll get there!

    Kristin - you can do it. It's easier if you do different kind of juices and explore what you like. That way you can't get bored and sick of the same juice over and over again. And it gets easier the longer you go!

    What has this post got in common with juicing? Wrong site I think!

    Today has been really hard. It's Saturday, so I am enjoying relaxing at home and making plans. What I would really like to do is go pick up some Chinese food and enjoy a nice hot dinner followed by a couple of Twinkies for dessert. Then, typical for a Saturday night, I'd go to the movies with my husband and have a big bucket of popcorn (extra butter, of course!), a box of Milk Duds, and a small pail of Dr. Pepper to wash it all down. Weekends are so hard.

    Yes Erica, they can be. Especially if you associate parts of the day with the food you used to eat. It's hard for me to go back home from work for example. Because for the last 10 years I was always thinking about the food I'm going to be eating once I come home. And now I still do sometimes and then it's hard to stick to juicing. But it gets better with each day you stick to juicing. Temptemtions became less and less strong and weekend are easier to handle. You can do it. Just stick to it. It's easier to continue with juicing than to start all over later on.

    Hey Erica. Hang tough and don't give up. Don't focus on what is lacking but instead on the positives. I'm keeping a daily journal which is basically just a record of my weight, my activities, what I eat, whether or not I drink alcohol or coffee. I didn't juice yesterday and I couldn't wait to make one today. One day at a time and small goals is how I am approaching this. Don't give up!

    I totally get it. My husband and I love to eat together - especially out on the weekends. I know the smell of popcorn in the movie theater can be torture when you can't have any, and I too am a milk dud fan! But BE STRONG. You can do this. Is there something else you can do together that would be a comforting "treat?"...like a couples massage? Or even a hike in nature?

    I am intrigued (and a bad speller)... how many juices do you make at a time??? how long do you keep before you consume?? ... is this how everyone's fridge looks? WOW! I did a 20 day fast last year and am just about to start up again.

    Is anyone journaling during their weight loss? I started a Twitter account to really put down what I'm going through on a day by day progress. I look forward to looking back on it when I've made more progress.

    Hi all, I was to start my first juice-only reboot last week and it was an epic fail, but I'm back at it again with renewed commitment! I bought a TON of produce and had a masticating juicer from about 10 years ago (an Omega). Thought I was all set. Then tried to make one juice and it took me an hour just to get the beets juiced and never even got another ingredient done!! Plus I tried to do this on a busy work week where I wasn't home most of the time. Oops... So some of my produce has gone bad over the week but some is still good. I picked up a proper centrifugal Breville Fountain (new Cold model) and made my first sample juice tonight. It was great! Will be starting my Reboot tomorrow finally. Wish me luck please! PS - does anyone know the recipe for the "Coconut Water Vegetable Broth" that's on the 3-day Reboot sample program, I can't find it on here. Is it just the pulp broth made with coconut water instead of plain water? Is it okay to use the "Homemade Vegetable Stock Concentrate" recipe, or is that off-limits since it's whole-vegetable based?

    Day 5, but not sure it it really counts as day 5 because I had corn one day, and a salad yesterday. I figured, I am at least keeping it vegetarian, but I;m trying to do better. I have been surprised at how good all of the juices taste. I love veggies, but I'm surprised so many taste food all juiced together. I need to get some really good recopies together for the weekend though, it is going to be tougher when I'm home and not busy at work. Tonight challenge - the kids are having pizza... I love pizza. Maybe a tomato juice will help. Good luck to all of you for the weekend!

    Congrats! Day 48 here. Stay strong during the first few days... Make sure to drink all of your juice. For me, on day 3 the cravings subsided, on day 5 I bounced off bed with tons of energy and on day 7 I was in control.
