    Good Morning. I juiced green last night. About 5 quarts of watermelon rind (with very little red fruit), green beans, cuke & celery, pears and kiwi. I'm out of lemons! (They didn't look great at one store and I forgot them at another!) We liked this when we made it last time but it tastes not quite as good. And I haven't yet put in any greens per se which I meant to do. ( Have chard - dandelion, I think still? - parsley - kales - beet greens which need to be used asap - romaine.) I might add something else to it later today.



    I prefer having 2 types of juice minimum, but this week I'm only keeping one at any time. My son is drinking very little right now and it's only my husband and me, 2 of us. So I'm alternating between a green juice and a carrot/beet juice, back and forth, with the goal of drinking it all before 3 days are up and replacing it with the other. Variety over time.

    We're going to have another day of resting on laurels -- meaning the big question every day -- I have enough juice in the fridge after spending a massive juicing session on Sunday morning, and one more day of salad mixes is already staged for lunch. Good, because we're headed out for an appointment early. A relief.



    We're not drinking as much juice now that everyone is having a salad as well daily.



    I'm off to bike, up early. I am finding it easy to bike if I've enough sleep. But someone [who shall be nameless aka a young man who gets his hours swapped around easily ] was making noise in the kitchen at 3:46am and here I am, awake. I can sleep thru a lot but not the bangs, lol. At least he was doing his dishes, pots and pans. And another someone [ El Doggo] had me up at the other end of the sleep cycle due to Thunderstorm Terrors. My muscles FEEL it.

    I've watched the first movie and got both his reboot with Joe and the 101 recipies books. I've read up and googled over the 80/20 rule. I've seen comments on the amount of juice to drink per day but have some questions. Some say six 16-18oz per day and others say three or four of that per day. Also does the "color" matter as long as the 80/20 rules is applicable? I plan on starting tomorrow (8/19/2018) and go juice-only fasting till Thanksgiving. For people to make the Joe's Mean Green, what is the average time? For me, prep-time through clean-up for two 18oz bottles is about an hour. Am I doing something wrong or is that average?



    Also a little background. I'm retired from the US Navy and when I retired I was told I have Type II Diabetes and that my previous doctors should have told me. I sort of ignored it but got a good doctor recently that sat me down two months ago and said that if I don't get it under control not only would he put me on insulin (because he has already maxed out my meds) but my life expectancy, using some formula, was around 58 - 60. It pretty much shook me up. He then told me about a patient that he has that was over 300+ pounds that went plant-only based diet and lost over 80 lbs in 3 months by the lifestyle change and that he added hiking daily. 2 months ago I weighed in at 263 lbs at 5'10". After adding 3 miles of brisk walking a day or more and watching more closely what I eat, I am down now to 239 lbs. My blood glucose levels are around 70ish in the morning and have been for the last month or so finally. I'm hoping that by doing a juice only reboot I can get my weight down to below 200 lbs and my A1C to normal non-diabetic levels and hopefully come off several of my meds AND put a smile on my doctor's face! I'm sort of going this alone. My 19 yr old daughter knows all and complains that I need the fiber of the fruit so I should be blending and not juicing but I point her to the internet and what I read but she then points me to other articles and says the opposite. My wife is semi-supportive but has seen me try various diets.



    Sorry for rambling. I tend to do that quite a bit. Well its great to talk with everyone and I will keep everyone informed of my trials and tribulations each day of the reboot.



    Thanks!

    Moose On The Loose, did you see my reply to this (and Zeke's) on the Juicing Challenge for Beginners Group?

    Hello. I am a newbie to Reboot. Watched Joe's first 2010 movie on Netflix, 2 months ago. Now I have started the 30 day Guided Reboot. It has been 2 weeks. Going well, feeling good, loosing weight.



    I would love to buy and try Joe's Plant Protein product. But P&H to Australia is U$40 - $80



    I have found a local product, that looks good, at U$20. Arrived yersterday. Tried spoon full in glass of water, which readily mixed with just a spoon, ( but a fork or wisk would have been quicker to mix the drink ). Raw / Unflavoured is good, but tasteless. Perfect for mixing into juices.



    There is also a version called 'Earth Protein', which is a combination of their Rice / Pea products. It comes only in Chocolate, Vanilla and Salted Caramel. My reboot Dietitian has recommended unflavoured, which is ideal for our juices.



    I am not an employee of Bulk Nutrients, and NO kick-backs to me. Apologies, hope this advertising is acceptable. Just wanting to help other Australians, looking for protein powders.

    Hope you all are well. Been a while for me since I’ve been here. But figured it was a good time to stop back in on some old friends. Good to see a few familiar names... :D
