    Welcome, Juice Buds! :) Special welcome to ... in reverse order... Sugar Hips, Miriam T, Anchorguy, and Annas.



    For those who are new, my family of 3 is here (via my posts) and we have been rebooting since Feb 14th... in various forms and not all in sync, but always plant-based, non-processed, lots of juice included, sometimes juice only. Right now, we are not juice only but it's still a major part of our nutritional intake. All of us eat a large cruciferous salad daily. Also have managed to include exercise (a big bear for me, lifelong). We're all in it for health, not just weight loss. We eat a lot less, juice or smoothie for b'fast, one meal mid-day, and rarely eat an evening meal (juice or a piece of fruit or something very small). Used to it and it works. All are losing weight still.



    The last week, I have been too busy with a move (my husband's work-related) and relying on thin green smoothies and bottled juice (cold pressure processed but not like raw homemade) and even bagged salads for my family. My son has kept making his pots of vegan veg soups which has helped. Everyone is still losing weight. The juice-only portions of our reboot have switched our metabolisms over to losing -- and the increased exercise probably confirms that.



    Anyway, we finished the worst of the move yesterday. Today, I can return to juicing! YEAH!! I am so grateful -- it's going to be SO GOOD going down! We're going to really push the juice this weekend to get those nutrients we've been feeling deprived of this last week... I am going to start with carrots and in a moment I am going to run to Sprouts to buy some beets to go with them. We usually add cukes and celery to dilute the sugar in those. Sometimes sweet potatoes. Sometimes other greens. I have one pound of fresh green beans in the fridge and am wondering what that could possibly taste like in carrot juice? lol Not sure I'm brave. I like my green juices green actually...



    Here goes! A smoothie to be going on with, then headed to store today and going to indulge in mostly focusing on healthy intake today. We have some final jobs related to the move (and a garage full of piles to sort, and equipment staged for moving later), and unfortunately a family member is in the hospital. But we're thru the worst of the move.

    I did juice carrots. Put the pulp back into the fridge for pressing tomorrow. (Sort of freebie juice tomorrow.)

    And I weighed in this afternoon. Another pound loss. 10.4 lbs to go to meet my January goal, which will be (if I remember at the moment, have to look... ) 33.8 lbs lost since April 1 when I started tracking. Then, another 12lbs to go to meet my reboot goal which will be where I was when we got married 40 years ago. Likely my body will want to be thinner than that because at that time, I was still overweight in doctors' eyes at that time. But that's where I'm headed for now.

    So for those of you just starting, hang in there thru the first days and week especially. It works! (And my reboot does not only include the juice only weeks -- it's ongoing, a new focus on health and being well and having a life in front of me that is worth making an effort for! Be nurturing to our bodies. They'll return the favor tenfold. At this point I am not really having to work hard to lose weight, other than of course putting the effort into juicing and finding fresh produce and taking care I am not being unkind to my body... the weight loss is just grace, it happens. I am very grateful.

    Be well, don't get sidetracked by hunger or detox or feeling badly or by the naysayers -- Be well, and juice on!

    Hi, everybody! My name is Anna I am from Argentina and im planning to start my first reboot on monday any advice?

    Do you have a juicer? Are you rebooting by going on a juice fast or are you transitioning by eating cleaning and gradually including juice? Google "rebootwithjoe.com transition" for articles on making it an easy transition. Some people go like Joe and "cold turkey" dive into juice only after eating terrible food the night before. In his guides, he doesn't recommend that.

    Send me your email addy (gmail or hotmail) privately to my inbox here and I'll forward the two PDF's we have access to for a 15 day and a 3 day reboot. But I just realized, you might not catch me soon enough -- I"m about to be out of pocket til tomorrow -- you can also ask and try to find someone else to send them now.

    Hi, Juice Buds. I am really sorry to have been missing. We are immersed in moving at my husband's work. In fact as a family, we're going to bagged salads and bought juice for a few days, maybe thru the weekend, til the flurry is over. (My son also has plans all weekend.) It's all working out alright. Just a lot of work.



    But we haven't stopped rebooting. I am still losing weight, compared to a couple of days ago, a new low this morning, even though I've had very little juice and have really cut back on my biking (coddling my ankle/knee). Very grateful.



    Expect me back full force soon!
