    Sorry I'm just commenting! I plan to eat raw foods. I'm lucky to have a health food store that prepares raw food near me. I will eat raw for about a week or two. There is a woman on YouTube who chose to eat vegetarian coming off. The first three days I will juice all day and have dinner. After that I will continue to add other meals into the equation. I hope this helps. Congrats on the success!!!

    I'm close to the end. I'm on day 43 and feeling good. Looking forward to the hard work paying off.

    Hello everyone! Newbie here! Okay....so I read through all of the posts in this group and I have a question. I am currently sitting at 280 lbs. My goal is to lose 100 lbs. I want to start with the 60 days and see how it goes. HOWEVER....I have serious concerns about the cost. I know I have the motivation to do this but my purse might not. First....do I have to spend a ton on money on a juicer?? I have been looking on all sorts of websites for a cheap but effective juicer that isn't going to break the bank. Also....I was at the grocery store the other day and priced the veggies and fruits (not too bad) but once I started looking at the recipes and seeing how much I needed of everything for just one drink, I started to get discouraged. We are on a tight budget and hey, let's face it, the cost of food has gone up tremendously (especially the healthy stuff!!). I want to do this so bad but I can't be broke either. Anyone else run into this problem or does anyone have any ideas about where to find a juicer that is cost effective?? Thank you so much!!!

    Of course the breville is the juicer of choice but if money is a factor perhaps you can try doing smoothies instead. With smoothies all you need is a blender. You also might want to try a 15 day reboot to see financially if you can keep it up. Hope all works out and good luck on your reboot!

    Hey Divinity76....you might want to try getting an inexpensive juicer to start off. I started with a $40 juicer and lost over 90 pounds using it. It carried me through 3 years of EXTREME juicing before the motor went out. LOL! Those really expensive juicers are great but not necessary, in my opinion. I bought a 2nd juicer (same company as my first) for about $60....and I am now down a total of 116 pounds.

    And as for veggies....you might want to try growing your own. Also, there are co-ops where you can go in with friends and split the costs. Or you can wait until fresh veggies and fruit get closer to the 'use by' date....and buy them for a fraction of what they usually sell for. Also, 'U Pick' farms might offer a solution, in regards to paying less for fresh produce.

    If this is what you need to do to regain your health, I hope you find a way to start. All the best!!

    What plan are you guys using for these long term juicing fasts? Do I just repeat the 5-day cycle over and over or ?

    Pomodorro, I don't even know what the 5-day cycle is? Will show me?! I am on day 40 and I've been juicing my favorite juices out of Joe Cross' recipe book. It is very helpful and every juice I've made from it is delicious. For realz. One item I would not touch was beets and I made juice with beets from the book and it's my favorite now.

    I just juiced kale / pear just now and it was like drinking a glass of "HAPPY!" This is so good for us. Let us be encouraged at the tools in front of us and thankful we found FSND and Joe Cross! Our future is so bright, we need to wear sunglasses! Here's to juicing on!

    Any objections to me jumping in the group? I'm planning on doing a 55 day juice only cleanse. This will be my second 'long' fast. I've finished a 26 day over Jan/Feb this year. I cheated a few times, but still managed to lose 25lbs (half of which i've put back on). I have sorted out a plan that works for me and that I feel good on:



    96oz of juice a day (mean green/orange cream/cucumber celery apple)



    128oz of water (at least) I usually end up doing more



    I am entertaining the idea of doing a smoothie here and there if things get real ugly. I figure it's better than hot wings and pasta.



    I felt really great on the last cleanse and I had an exit strategy for eating and exercising, but I ended up getting blindsided by a bunch of school stuff (full time nursing student/father of three/husband). Things can escalate rather quickly in my life due to the aforementioned ;).



    Anyway, I'm excited about doing this again! I graduate in 55 days and this is sort of my gift to myself. I've done a few short fasts here and there and I may be able to help if people have questions. Last time, all my detox stuff, hunger pangs, cravings, were pretty much over by day 5. I was cooking dinner for my family every night as well. It sort of helped me think that I was going to eat I guess.



    Best of luck to you guys. I hope to stay connected and communicating. I had a friend that was doing it with me and it made a world of difference. Thanks guys.

    daverji, you are welcome to join! I haven't been on here for several days and I can tell. I lose focus a bit. I have been sipping on coffee, diet soda and caffienated tea. I know diet soda is satan and don't know why I can't refrain? The weightloss has slowed down but I haven't quit! I logged on tonight to get back in the game. I hope we can finish our course well and keep the weight off forever! Juice on!

    Day 25...whatever. Weight loss has stalled but have come in at least a couple of inches. Went to the kebab shop tonight with the guys but had nothing. Not much more to report. I'm hoping that the lack of weight loss of means that I'm coming in. It sure feels that way. This is the point in previous diets where I've lost motivation. Haven't this time but the enthusiasm's definitely taken a wee knock.

    jumbojack, you are doing great! It's part of our learning a new life, our new transformation. Who cares if we lose excitement, momentary motivation or inspiration, we don't quit. I'm in the same boat so lets help each other complete our course! We can do this. Tomorrow, I am committing to refrain from diet soda and coffee. Will you help me? I haven't quit, I keep juicing, but I need to refrain from sipping on those two satan's. :) All the best and here's to juicing on!

    I'm wrapping up day3 today. The cravings are all over the place but mostly seem to be triggered by smells and go away after a moment or so. I'm a little flumoxed because I have been voluntold to plan a lunch for my office as well as make a soup for potluck that we will be having....not looking forward to either. I'm hoping my boyfriend will be ok with making the soup for me (he is an expert at the drive through and cereal, but that's it for his cooking skills). Reading over the posts, I think seeing what everyone's experiences are is going to be very helpful!

    Hello everybody. I just finished my first day. I've done short juice fasts before but never did much afterwards. I've now developed fibromyalgia and a 7 month never-ending headache that I've had 2 MRIs, multiple injections, and various medications with little to no relief. I'm hoping that by completing a reboot, I can see if there is food based source. I'm doing the eating and juicing for the first 5 days and then just juicing for anywhere from 30-60 days. Just transitioning in I've lost 4.5 lbs, so I'm hoping to keep that weight loss going since I gained 30 pounds from one of the medications I was on. Once I lose that weight, I have about another 90 lbs. to lose to be considered a "healthy" weight.



    I'm not only juicing for myself but also my husband, so it is nice to have to built-in support. I've recently returned to school to get a job where I can work from home since the headaches don't allow me to work as an ICU nurse, like I was. Thankfully this is my spring break week, so I can just concentrate on easing into my reboot. I'm excited for this journey. Juice on :)

    Three weeks on, 20 lbs lost and still feeling great and motivated. Two inches off the waist, thinner face. Still sceptical and won't be convinced till I've lost another 7 lbs. Two stone 5 lbs till no longer obese. Next Monday's target: 17 st 2 lbs - present weight 17 st 5 lbs. C'MON!!!



    Cravings for humous, no idea why, don't care. It's there if I "need" it. If you're on Netflix, please have a look at 'Forks, Not Knives." Fascinating look at the theoretical background of FSAND without getting too political. X
