    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."

    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?

    I want to make a video giving tips and advice to people going a juice fast for the first time. Give me your best tips for juice newbies.

    Peter, What a warrior....85 pounds, much respect. I just posted about some of your concerns about transitioning off the fast in the Juicing Challenge for Beginners group. My biggest challenge is transitioning and continuing with a healthy lifestyle after the fast. I use John Rose's protocol for coming off of a fast. Throughout the fast I prepare myself mentally for how I'm going to continue my healthy lifestyle after the fast. I find fasting easier than the transition and continuing this journey after the cleanse. Currently, I'm thinking that I will continue Intermittent Fasting and fasting one - three days a week. On days that I eat, I will have two vegan meals. My window for IF will be about 6 hours, I currently don't have juice until 12 and last juice at 6:00. This was my IF eating window before this JO fast and it works really well for me. IF works....just need to find which hours and times work for you. I've watched lots of people undo their success after fasting (I've made my mistakes). Here are some things I think about:



    Strong Intentions are important...have your goals



    I chart weight, BMI, Body Mass, Muscle Mass, Water and weight loss daily (easy because my scale does it)



    Group support is critical....even more challenging if you don't have a tribe to share your journey



    Be prepared....carry food/juice with you and know what food plan you want to follow before ending the fast



    Vegan? what kind....whole food plant based...check out the McDougall website Keto (which I don't recommend but I don't know your preferences) check out Dr. Fung on Facebook....if you are interested in raw foods I have other recommendations (I did a private group fast with Tanny Raw and it was wonderful)



    Be kind to yourself...this is an exciting journey and we all make mistakes



    It is a challenge to find the right place to post to give/receive support. I know inactive boards are not especially supportive. Let me know how you want to continue your success and I might be able to come up with some specific directions for you. It is great that you are thinking about this before you end your fast. I know you will have continued success!

    I am 100% sure I commented to this already, but I can't see it so I will post it again.....

    First, let me thank you for all the tips and compliments. I was asking around other communities about IF because that's what worked for me before the fast. I am planning on going back to it once the fast is over, but I wanted to talk to someone who has been doing it somewhat long term. Have you been doing it for over a year? Or for that matter know someone who has been doing it for over a year?

    Hey Guys, I am new Here and I just wanted to upload a progress pic :) day 86 going strong I have been asking around, how do you guys stay accountable after finishing the Juice cleanse?I really struggled in the past when it came to keeping the weight off and I am looking for ways that worked for other people.




  • Maddogcupcake

    Wow, that is awesome Peter! I have not figured out how to stay accountable. I did a 90 day reboot, then turned around into a massive yo-yo. I was thinking of something like a drop dead weight. Whenever I creep up to that drop dead weight, it's an instant reboot starting the next day. And weighing every day so you can't ignore the creep? I'd love to hear some other approaches that have worked for people.

    I am aiming at the building of as many healthy habits before and while I am on the fast, and I aim to maintain them after the fast as well, but I am also actively looking around as much as I can for what worked for other people.

    I'll Keep you guys posted as to what people from other communities said as well:)

    Hi, All. Sure hope this group is active. I just started the diabetic 2-month reboot. And it's taking awhile for folks to post.

    Hi Lilly! Our group is pretty slow right now, too. Maybe it's the holidays. I bet the first week in January this website will go crazy! ;) How's it going on your reboot?

  • Soose

    Lilly, join the groups here and stay with it. We're here long term. Good luck with your 60 day reboot guided version. If you want to stay at it more than 60 days, I mean, you need to make friends who are also going at it longer. I think.
