    I just want to remind everybody how hard this is, how few people do it, how inspiring you are, and what a fantastic thing you are doing for your health. Be proud of yourself. Stay strong and juice on!

    Right back at you.

    By the way, I don't know why you aren't a part of happy juicing 2018:)

    That group is a lot more active, you should give it a try.

    Maddo.... Week one: I lost 9.8 pounds....week 2: lost 2 pounds. Today I start week three. I was frustrated by losing only 2 pounds last week, just got on here and read that you have been at a plateau for 6 days! I think we both have enough experience to know the ebb and flow of fasting. Part of the process is persistence. It is that mentally knowing that we are in it for the long haul, and I have to do different to get different. I have been steadfast and not picked up any solid food. I'm after health and the numbers on the scale are just that. I've lost the bloat and water weight. I'm back in the gym. My mental clarity and energy has improved. I'm not hungry. I know I will reach my goals and so will you. Day 31....you are doing awesome!

    Right back at you! We're all blossoms of awesome. The longest plateau I have endured was 2 weeks. Sometimes the body needs to pay attention to something other than weight loss, like absorbing the shock of it all or deep cleaning or whatever is going on in there. Plateaus are fairly common from the posts I've read over the last year or so.

    Hi, everyone. Day 31, 19 pounds down. I've been at a plateau for 6 days but I know it will break. Frustrating but, this isn't all about weight loss after all. Be strong and juice on!

    Do you weigh yourself every day?

    I weigh myself once a week or every other week even, that way I see a substantial change every time I do. I find it more rewarding that way.

    I do weigh every day during plateaus because it's crushing to go a week, step on the scale and be blindsided with no movement. I mentally handle it better with a daily weigh. But when I am losing weight, I only weigh a couple times a week. In part to keep my focus on getting healthy as opposed to weight loss, and in part to avoid worrying about water weight fluctuations etc.

    hi! i watched your videos. i enjoyed them. i was hesitant at first, but they're good. perfect length. i am wondering a bit about you. where are u from? where r you living? what's your juicing day like? what's your food downfall? how'd you break your habit with it? telling about how you changed your food habits before your 2nd reboot was great and excerpting the MD from Joe's movie was too. ! good job! wish i could do a video diary but i'm not sure i could figure it out

    I need to wrap some things up and head to work, so I'll make a proper introduction later, but I just wanted to say thanks for the feedback!

    I would love to hear about the things that felt out of place or things I can work on to improve in the future. It's really hard for me to narrow those things down because I can't really be objective about my own work.

    Let me know if there is anything I can do to help in case you do decide to take it up and make a video diary.

    Lilly, I wrote you a lengthy reply to your "don't think I can do it" post yesterday and it is not here! Must be an indication that I should stop writing a thesis to posters. :) The heart of it was that when you are ready to make this commitment, you can do it. Don't beat yourself up if you take a break....just adopt a clean whole foods program (hopefully vegan) and get back on this pony as soon as you can! I listed lots of suggestions, but my guess is you probably know them already. Let us know how we can be of service to help you over this hump! Healing, health, mental clarity, spiritual growth, are just a few of the benefits I reap from fasting...I stay in the positive mindset of this extraordinary lifestyle and it keeps me moving ahead. Just for this minute, you can do this!

    reading other's posts helps and so does having a place to write. i really appreciate your writing to help me. sorry your longer post was lost! i can use all the help i can get. i'm doing bit better today. Goals: less pain. better walking. better breathing. better living. get off victoza. stopped being owned by excess food.

    i've been a vegetarian since i turned 17. decades ago. but i never went vegan. could never give up cheese. but i've learned i can let any food go. they always lose their appeal if enough time goes by. bacon and hotdogs used to be what i would "cheat" on. now bacon doesn't even appeal to me. even the smell. used to haunt me. i used to search for veggie dogs. not any more. i mean, i don't turn them down, but i wouldn't eat them now. so i can manage juice fasting for 6 weeks. yep. i can do this.

    Soose asked me to update y'all. here's part of what she sent me.



    "I did go to the doctor yesterday ?had to have my husband drive me because I was too weak). To feel safe driving that is. The doctor, who is relatively new to me I've only been seeing him for about two and a half months, just ordered some blood tests and I haven't heard back from them yet. The good side of this doctor is he doesn't push meds at all. The downside is he seems to be a little slow coming to a solution LOL.



    "Meanwhile I'm just trying to be as healthy as I can. It's not so easy to check in on the reboot with Joe site on my telephone, and I haven't made it to the computer today. If you are on the site before I will will you put it up with me that I am mending as well I can? Please thank you.



    "I don't know what this is. It might have been a flu or something. The last two flues I had (and it was very unusual for me to have two flu's!) were before and right after I started this reboot, and I had a lot of post flu muscle fatigue. So that may be some of what is going now. I read that that is because something in the blood cells gets exhausted by the immune system. Not sure what I read now.



    "My husband and son are pitching in where they can which is a blessing. My son is doing the grocery shopping right now. I really can't stand in the kitchen to juice. They had made me smoothies but I haven't been able to drink those so far. I hope I have turned the corner today.



    "I have started doing what little stretches and exercises I can do in bed so that I don't lose too much muscle capability. I figure all the little bits will add up.



    "Well now I see y'all have rambled too much. Voice recognition ads to my long-windedness..



    "I will be back as soon as I can feel up to sitting at the computer at least to let people know that I'm still there and still committed to reboots. And thank you again."

    Lilly...I am still figuring it out too, you are not alone.

    Peter...got you mail. You are smart to be investigating IF, I started a few years ago. There is a lot to learn and, just like anything regarding weight loss, it is important to experience to find what it right for you. IF is about timing and a lot of people start with a 16:8 window. This allows you a large (8 hours) eating window. I've experimented with 18:6, 20:4, and OMAD also. I want at least 16 hours of fasting because I want to be burning fat. During the fasting stage I don't put one bite of food in my mouth (I will drink herbal teas or lemon water) because I want the most from my fast and autophagy stops with ANY amount of food. (i.e., The warrior diet is a form of IF but because it suggests low calorie -fruits/veggies throughout the fasting stage you stop the autophagy which requires at least 16 hours of no food to kick in. Any amount of food (one bite) will kick start insulin and stop weight loss. New research shows snack eating throughout the day is not the most effective way to burn fat. The Warrior Diet book was written 20 years ago and I give it kudos for giving a new perspective on weight loss).



    Also, I won't be undisciplined regarding the food I eat for my one or two meals. Quality and amount still matter when using OMAD or IF. Again, I don't know what your history is regarding diet. If I was recommending (and I won't for this reason), I would have to take into account your health, intention, and previous way of eating. Important to find your own path.



    It is critical to have a plan. When you are eating one or two meals a day, food counts and you've got to be prepared. I did a private group fast with Tanny Raw and the most important take away from that experience was you must plan to be successful. I use my fasting time to prepare mentally and consider how I will be eating when I come out of the fast. You can blow all your hard work if not transitioning carefully and thought out how you are going to eat to continue this health journey. I don't want to live in repeat land. I've worked too hard to make this happen.



    I sense your dedication and you have proven this by your successful weight loss and fast. I am determined to live a healthy lifestyle. This a journey towards lifelong freedom from obesity. (and i could write a book because health is so much more than just the food you do/do not eat.) I just tipped my BMI into the overweight category. I am on my way and so are you. Let's make this happen!

    Wow man, thanks for all the info.

    I am probably going to go into a 3-4 hour eating window right after the juice fast.

    Before I started the fast I was on a 6-8 hour eating period but I rather build the right habit fresh after the cleanse so I will go for 3-4.

    Do you have any experience with transitioning from a reboot to an IF routine?
