    Hello everyone. My name is Sofia. I've been very excited to begin the 30-Day Anti-Inflammatory reboot, but I've become very frustrated because I have tried to contact the support group, but no one has gotten back with me. On Wednesday there was supposed to be a welcome webinar, but I did not receive instructions to be part of the webinar. Yesterday the program began, but again I did not get an email with instructions as to how to join the webinar. In both cases I've checked my spam folder. Again, I've tried 1/2 dozen times to bring the problem to the attention of the support group, but no one has gotten back with me. A big thank you in advance to anyone who can help me.

    Sofia, the paid reboot groups operate independently from this community forum, which is free. We don't get the webinars at all. I don't know how to contact your support group. (Sorry! Maybe someone else does. ) I know you are frustrated with this or I would be, but please don't let it stop you from your reboot, whatever you do!

    (And there's loads of articles that are available on the site. I find if I go out and google "rebootwithjoe.com phrase" I'll find some article on most everything. And for those not participating in a paid webinar -- pretty sure you get your own reboot guide with recipes and such if you pay that way -- for the rest of us, there are two older pdf's of both a short and longer reboot that have a lot of info and answers to questions. Send me a private message here and we'll exchange emails and I can send those to you off the site via gmail. )

    Also, it's great that some of you are also looking into the community here as well as doing the paid reboot because when the group goes away, we're still going to be here for support. Do both if you can. HTH.

    hi, my name is Erika and I'm just staring my 30 day reboot today. Its been really hard for me. I'm not looking forward to the next 30 days at this point. I have a terrible food addiction I'm constantly thinking of it, even when im not hungry. I think its kinda like the God in my life.... I mean my actions and constant obsession make me think that. I don't worship food or anything but its keeping me from being successful in my life, and just making me sicker. I really have to do this because I haven't been well with having lupus, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, PCOS, GERD, ulcers, migraines, and chronic fatigue, not to mention anxiety, depression and ADHD, I feel so fucked up. But im really.hoping to find people who are on this journey too and can offer some support. Is there anyone who is similar? I'm hoping in a few days im gunna be loving life but right now Im freezing sweating and I want to eat gushers!

    Hi MommiAthena. I'm a bit apprehensive that this program may be a challenge for me. Would love to have a support buddy, as soon as I get on with the program. Hang in there :)

    Morning, Erika. Food addict, yes. Hang in there. You can do this.

    I used to have GERD but when I learned how to eat differently, I went for many years without symptoms. (History of esopageal dysfunction I guess you'd call it, in my maternal family, my mother had multiple operations eventually on the esophagus. So we're just more prone to it.)

    You might try celery juice for a GERD attack -- worked wonders for me when I weaned myself off the med I was taking for it, and my system backlashed with horrible attacks. It didn't help one of my brothers, though; I think he said aloe juice works for him. So see if it works for you. Even a tiny bit of juice from chewing on a celery stalk will calm it down for me.

    Did you do any type of transition into the reboot, or go cold turkey? Sorry you're having a rough time!

    Good morning, Rebooters! I used my new "milk bottles" yesterday and here's a photo...






    That was 10lbs carrots, 2 celery bunches, and 2 medium cucumbers. Juiced in the centrifugal you see on the left (with the yellow bowl turned upside down on it) and then I also pressed the pulp (wiht the press right behind the bottles) and added it all before bottling. I spilt some juice bottling or that 11th bottle would be full, too.



    Those bottles are listed at 14oz for sale but surely that measurement is not up to the top of the bottle the way I do it to cut down on oxygen for storage, so I figured on counting them at 15oz servings. I will go measure -- perhaps they hold more? ... Nope, they hold 14 oz each, topped off with 1/8" to spare. So eleven of them at 14 oz ... produced 154oz and spilled a couple of ounces of that.



    I do like being able to grab a single serving out of the fridge and just drink it and wash the bottle, no hassle.



    Be well, juice on!

    hey girl! I'm starting on the 30 day reboot as well! How are you doing? I'm dying today. I didn't prepare properly I didn't realize I was supposed to the week before so now I'm paying for it. What about you??

    I bought some new bottles for my juice this weekend, and they came in tonight! I am jazzed and looking forward to trying them out.



    Single serving sized. Cute. Bottoms should fit in my narrower fridge door. (I have plenty of wide-mouthed mason jars for quarts, but not for single-serving. And not liking the wide-mouthed single serving mason jars I do have to drink out of .)

    I didn't realize Joe's Journal was here on site. If you're looking for inspiration today, maybe this is it. Page 7 has entries for the beginning of the journey and Page 1 has the last 7 or 8 entries for the 60 day journey. Very inspiring to see it work, and I caught a glimpse of Phil's photo -- I remember from the movie how unhealthy he was and the photo is included on Joe's day 55. (I think the journal was posted a year or so later.) They are both just amazing in transformation!

    This morning, I get to go to Sprouts for juicing produce! I am excited! I just LOVE going to shop for produce nowadays. Very strange, lol. My son's been doing this shopping for a few weeks, and I am grateful to be able to do it myself. I will buy another 20lbs of carrots to add to the 10lbs in the fridge. Plus celery, cukes to cut the sugar. (I actually need to stop and estimate how much we need this week, as last Sunday I think we juiced a bit too much for 4 days. We are not juice-only right now. Just upping the juice consumption. )



    Also, what a day for it -- there is something strange in the sky, bright... might it be the SUN? And the sky is BLUE! We have had so much rain lately, the ground is soggy where there's not standing water, huge puddles and ponds of water very slowly draining off.



    Juicing in the sun! Two life-givers! Be well and juice on! :)

    How long can our fresh juice last in the fridge?

  • Soose

    Sealed well, so that oxygen can't get to it, 3 days. (The very best practice is to top it up to overflow if you can, and let it dribble out onto a tray, then rebottle what spills over the top. That gets all the oxygen out. Assuming your bottles are leak-proof. ) Some people do not want to drink juice that is 3 days or even 3 minutes long. Sensibilities vary. Most do keep it this long. But after that, you'll be able to taste it going sour.

    I would drink it as fast as I can. The older it gets, the less nutrients it has. I make juice enough for one day.

    Juice 20lbs carrots yesterday afternoon with 4 celery bunches, 6 smaller cukes, and 3 very large beet roots. About 6 quarts Fridge full of juice! Pressed the pulp after for an additional 3plus quarts of juice. 9 quarts is what I estimated we needed for my dh and I to get thru Sunday. Sunday afternoon, we'll juice again. Not getting greens in this way; have to get them other ways. Smoothies, salads for now.

    It's juicing day. I have 30 lbs carrots in the fridge un-washed, but am not sure yet how much of that I'll juice (with accompanying beets/celery/cukes. I did just add up that between my dh and I, we'll need 17 - 16oz servings between Fri morning and Sun night. That's 8.5 quarts. Could likely get all of that out of 15lbs carrots batch if you include the pulp pressings as well. Will consider; might only do half today. Or 20lbs to give me that extra quart or so...



    If I'm doing it ALL, then if I have time, I'll spend some time topping half the carrots this morning before I have to go out. If I'm only doing half, it can all be done (prep, juice, cleanup) in well under 2 hrs.



    Anyone else juicing today?



    Be well and juice on! Soose
