    Hello everyone, what a lovely group - feeling inspired...again! Which is just what I need I've been juicing on and off for a few weeks. I really like it, got through the dreadful detox and feel so much better, then I blow it! So keep picking myself up and get going again - I've lost 14lbs and don't want to go up, so happy to plateau and start afresh as long as I keep going in the right direction. Have learned it is such an enormous change that if it's gradual for a while that's ok. Joining a gym the end of next week and seeing a personal trainer, got over the guilt of investing in ME (even typing that makes me squirm) but my goal is 100lbs from now which will take me back to school weight TBH that seems so unreal and a million miles from here but I'm curious, I'm in for the long haul and here goes!!

    Welcome to the group Daisy! It is a huge change and everyone approaches it their own way:) I think a lot of us in this position have self-worth issues and consequently have trouble spending money on ourselves. But remember that everyone in your life benefits when you take care of YOU!

    fittobeme, sorry to read about your accident; you will most likely heal much faster on a plant based diet, there are many examples of that in various health documentaries. Congrats on your juice feast and fyi, Joe actually recommends not overdoing it with activity while fasting... you may want to check out what he says about that, but you're doing great :) Also, in addition to the great 80/20 link posted by Natshell, there are plans with menus and recipes if you'd like to follow them:

    When I watched the movie FS&ND, I got the impression that Joe and the truck driver got into exercising. Hm. I thought if I exercised that I would tone up as I lost weight, so I wouldn't be so saggy. Lol I've been exercising all year as I've lost weight, so I'm not changing my pattern drastically. Do you think that makes a difference?

    I have seen those plans, but didn't know how that worked for a 60 day all juice fast. I see that there's eating in them, so I was stumped, I was under the impression that you only drank. Does he have a 60-day juice only plan available? I'm probably over thinking it, I tend to do that.

    Fittobeme: basically make sure you have more veggies than fruits in most of your juices. Joe in the DVD said you can have straight juice for breakfast but the rest should be mostly veggie based. It has to do with with not spiking your blood sugars.

    fittobeme - I've heard different things about 80/20. Some people (like me) just eyeball it. I look at the produce I've laid out for a juice and try to the best of my ability to make sure that it is (volume-wise) at least 80% veggie. Some people actually look at calorie content and make sure that only 20% of the calories they consume in any given day is from fruit. That's too much work for me;o) As in most things I just do the best I can. If you want more guidance, here is an article about that subject: 80/20 Golden Reboot Rule

    JUICINGGEEZWOMAN - funny how nobody questioned me about whether I was getting enough protein while I went through enough junk food and fast food to get to 340 lbs but now they are SO worried about it.... ;o)

    SING - a bunch of us seem to be jumping back into juice fasting this week! The more the merrier:) I started back today. I went straight back to just juice since I've been eating high-raw, 90% plant based already.



    TAFFY - I think I think that when family members and friends see you losing weight over the holidays there will be a few more new converts! LOL



    SHUNNED - You are such an inspiration! My granddaughter was sitting beside me this morning and asked my why that little devil was naked. LOL I said, "that's the lil devil that tries to get my friend Heather to eat bad things but Heather whoops it's little fanny!" ROFL



    UCANTIMAGINE - I also use stainless steel bottles I got in the sporting goods section or glasses and a tap filter. I would like to get a true filtration system at some point but for now this is the best I can do.

    HEATHIE and anyone else interested. Here are some of the people I follow that have a lot of knowledge and inspiration to share about fasting or raw food or vegan lifestyles: this is off the top of my head so not comprehensive. I'm trying to get a good list attached to the side bar on my blog but the gadget isn't working. (Note - these are all youtube channels and in RANDOM order.)



    1. GFVeganlife - Mia Sansom She has been at this for several years and is A.Ma.Zing. Look at her older videos to compare. Ohmigosh!



    2. Raw Raw Life - If juicing and eating raw can leave you as gorgeous and awesome as this woman, sign me up! She is funny and knowledgeable - great comination.



    3. Liferegenerator - former drug addict who is very much into the mental, spiritual aspect. He is a bit crazy and fun to watch but a HUGE source of knowledge and information.



    4. Ka Sundance - Love this guy and his gorgeous family. Inspiration for what a raw lifestyle (even the kids) can be like. Their videos are done in gorgeous locations which doesn't hurt.



    5.FatWomanGoesRaw - Kim - Funny, inspirational, and really embodies the Never Give Up.



    6. FullyRawKristina - I doubt she has ever had to lose a pound in her life but she is great for info on raw/vegan stuff.



    7. Reach4Raw - Cookie - Beautiful British gal who started the 90 Day Christmas Challenge group I (and Jana:) belong to on fb.



    8. Okraw - John actually has several channels and he owns discountjuicers.com He has TONS of wisdom and knowledge about juicing and organic gardening etc. I follow Okraw and discountjuicers and growingyourgreens on youtube:)



    9. SteveCrider - he did a 100 day juice fast and lost something like 100 lbs but went back to the wrong kinds of foods and is trying to get back to juice fasting. He is brutally honest about his journey and what he does right and wrong. He is the reason I was obsessed while on my first juice fast with making sure I had an EXTREMELY HEALTHY food plan set up to come off of juice fast onto.



    My blog is Brand New Natshell. It is linked on my wall. I will try to get the list of links attached to my sidebar as soon as I can:) Also will have a few who are a great source for recipes if you are going raw and/or vegan.



    (Full disclosure - I'm friends on fb with Kim and Cookie. They are awesome.)

    Good afternoon again!!



    I'm wondering if anyone knows how to implement the 80/20 rule. I have all of these fruits and vegetables, but am stumped in forming a balanced menu.
