    Thanks Sherri, it's getting easier, and I'm hoping that some of my auto-immune symptoms start disappearing soon, I've had 14 CAT scans since I had cancer 5 years ago, and they still cannot figure out what is wrong.



    How is your juice fast going? Hanging in there?!

    Fallen off a bit, but still having a min of 2 juices a day. I’ve been snacking on almonds and because they’re unsalted I don’t even like them and still munching more than I want to. Trying for a full day of juicing tomorrow! I think the key is to not give up and go completely backwards. So in that sense I’m doing well!! Down 14lbs! Thank you for asking

    Hello all, on day 7 of my juice fast, so far so good.



    Gonna keep on juice fasting this time as long as I can financially do it, the price of veggies here in Nova Scotia Canada is through the roof, (and I'm on fixed disability) especially celery, now $4.75 each, it's crazy.



    Can't wait for summer as I'm growing as many veggies as I can!



    Cheers :)

    Boy I thought my celery was expensive at 2.59! Guess I'll quit complaining. Hang in there!

    Welcome NSreboot -- and congrats on 7 days! I

    guess that NS stands for Nova Scotia? Bet it's beautiful up there! Wow at the price of produce, though! Good motivation to grow a garden. Our organic celery has been 1.99 lately here. (US dollars). It occasionally goes on sale, too.

    Tidbit... Leslie just shared on Happy Juicing about some doc who drank 32 oz of celery juice during treatments for pancreatic cancer? (She was listening to a summit.) I guess that's 2 to 3 bunches of celery. Cheaper than cancer treatment meds, for sure.

    Be well and juice on!

    Did ya'll know that the lymphatic system is dependent on movement to work? That means exercise and movement thru the day directly affects our immune system. The sedentary lifestyle defeats the way our bodies are supposed to work! Just learned that! We need to MOVE.



    This afternoon is juicing day for me. My husband stopped by Sprouts and brought home 15lbs carrots, 3 large bunches celery, 3 cukes, red beets. I can taste it now.



    I had him get an extra 3 bunches celery to juice separately as I have to fast for bloodwork and a test tomorrow morning. They said high protein/no carbs from tonight but they do want you to have something. Usually I have carrot/beet juice when I get up. But we don't usually eat an evening meal (eat earier). I'm going to drink celery juice before the fasting start; easily digested and no blood sugar fluctuations surely.

    Today I’ve managed to get through the day with only juice. Feeling good and hopeful. Learning to trust myself and the process. I may go to bed early to avoid temptation...

    Hello everyone... well, I have not been rebooting, but simply adding nutrition to my meal plans. Actually, I replaced breakfast with a pint of purple juice over ice. (Beets and red cabbage make a nice color to juice!) So that's good. I'm not doing this primarily for weight loss... I'm on three different meds and want to be OFF of them for good. Since I'm such a carnivore, I wanted to incorporate fruits and veggies into my diet slowly. It's working. Soon I'll replace two meals with juice and eat only one meal a day - let's all cross our fingers it will be a very healthy meal. It is getting easier. My cravings for sweets and breads is waning, so that's the best thing I've notices. Also I've lost 1 1/2" in my waist, my arms, and my thighs. I'm not really keeping up with weight. But that's my update, and I hope to be in more often! Take care and keep juicing!

    Nice! I’ll try beet and cabbage juice this week. It sounds like quite a combo!

    I want to check-in as often as I can..



    It’s 9:31 am EST and just had a green smoothie.. I feel encouraged.






    My next one will be at noon. I’m drinking lots of water and may have a fruit.. I’ll be having a carrot juice then.

    This RyanBennett below is the i.d. of a spammer, ya'll. Just in case you are not watching "recent activity". For some reason this one added in a couple of replies to other posts. Usually they just join, post one link or so on their own wall, and disappear.

    Those spammers are so irritating. All those movie things! I hadn't been on this site for a while and came back a few days ago and was surprised to see them still here. Thought they'd figure out how to get rid of them by now. Oh well, it's worth it to sift through them and find juicing buddies for support on this journey

    im so excited! my omega parts for my juicer arrived so I can make them myself now. I bought some fresh made juices at my local grocery store but I ran out. luckily today I got all my ingredients for my mean green juice and a couple other ones.

    Tessla, and others, when you get a chance, maybe you could add to the thread we started elsewhere for people who are looking for a juicer. Tell us about your juicer and what you like and don't like? I know I for one am probably up soon for a replacement. I have an expensive one I do not use and want to sell when I get myself together for doing that. I'm using an old cheap centrifugal for my hard stuff like carrots because it just works faster and is easier to clean. But it's not going to last forever. Anyone willing to contribute to the juicer thread (SHOW MY JUICING SETUP) , please do.

    When I get a chance I will, mines an omega 8004 and its amazing, I just found out I can also make coconut oil, butter and cream with it. I read somewhere you need fat and eating coconut is good, so I can eat these to replace fat.

    Day 2 didn’t go as I had planned..



    Good news.. I drank a green smoothie and 2 other juices with fruits & veggies



    Not so good news... I totally caved this evening and had some pizza, wings, and cookies.. I think the idea of denying them made me think of them more..



    So new plan is that I’ll plan ahead when I can have my treats.. I’ve scheduled it for 2 weeks from now.. I’m not denying them but minimizing intake. Who knows when 2 weeks comes, choosing a healthier option won’t be such a hard thing.



    Funny thing is after 2 slices, the other slices were superfluous.. I ended eating it all because I didn’t want to see them.. ???? lol



    Another thing is making sure I’m prepared.. I had soups & fish at work (free food).. I think ???? it would be best to stick to food I cook because I know what went in it.. I think all the salt from those soups made me crave more.



    Day 3 is nigh.. I have a 16-hr shift at the hospital. I’m arming myself with 2 green smoothies, 2 juices, & one healthy meal I made.



    I’ll keep you updated. The goal is creating a sustainable lifestyle change.. It’s progress over perfection.

    Ebele and Tessla,

    Hang in there and do NOT GIVE UP. Keep coming and posting and don't give up on the reboot even if you have a problem along the way. Have to be in it for a long term.

    Another way to plan ahead for transition days is to find substitutes - plant-based and clean - for those treats. I'm thinking of this because a friend just sent me a photo of a gorgeous veggie homemade one of those things that she made for supper. There are plenty of recipes online.

    The point of transition to me is to make it easier for our bodies to detox all the unhealthy junk by transitioning to vegan -- healthy plant based eating -- beforehand (and juice only days will be easier come that time). The point of a reboot is to super load the body with fantastic nutrition so it has what it needs to cure what ails us and get to a healthy state.

    This can be done. You can do this. It sometimes takes awhile -- it did for me this last time and will again -- to get transitioned over. Sometimes we have to learn what it takes for us individually. Don't give up. Keep coming.
