    Got my new juicer in the mail and I am on day 2 of an at least 30 day. I'm shooting for a 60 pound loss this year. Super motivated and really excited. We will see how I feel in a week!

    Day 23 ! Every Day In Every Way - I Am Doing Better and Better! I had the "funnest" grocery shop ever... I am a little afraid of too much citrus - so still strong on my Mean Green Juice - but am starting to reach for some 'substitutes' - Shard, Collard Greens, Green Cabbage, Zucchini, Pear, Pineapple, lime! I also picked up an Anise... ! Forge ON - and JUST DO IT. Am not weighing in until the 29th ... But I feel great and my cloths are feeling pretty darn good! Started at 183 - Goal 133... maybe even 123 !

    Pushing through. Day 1-4 were actually okay for me. I felt great, but starting to struggle with hunger and fatigue on Day 5 and 6. I was only doing 4 juices because that was all I was hungry for the first few days, but added in the 5th juice last night. I slept in this morning and think that has thrown my blood sugar off. One day at a time.....I watched a couple of food movies last night for inspiration. Forks over Knives and Cowspiracy. I highly recommend. Keep it up everyone and thanks for being here.

    Happy to join you guys. I start my first 30 day reboot tomorrow on Valentine's Day. I figure what better way to show some love to myself. I am doing this for health reasons (hypothyroid and thyroid autoimmune disorder), the biggest change I am hoping for is more energy and less pain. I know I will lose weight in the process and need to lose 40-60 lbs to be at a healthy BMI, but for me it is not about the weight as much as a lifestyle change. That is how I know am ready. Looking forward to having you all for support!

    Juice fasting is not a quick fix or a fad diet. It is a doorway to a lifestyle change. I highly advise you to check out all the food documentaries that you can while you are fasting and prepare yourself for when you end the fast. Prepare some menus for your self and research how to break the fast so you will do so correctly and easily. If you keep eating the foods that made you overweight in the first place, then you will gain all the weight back. Use the self-discipline that you develop during the juice fast to keep yourself on track in your new diet. Here are the names of some of the documentaries I've watched.



    Forks over knives



    Speciesism



    Food Inc.



    Earthlings



    Cowspiracy



    Hungry For Change



    The Gerson Therapy



    -Seek knowledge and be excellent!

    Kathryn E,

    Check out Fed Up on netflix it blows your mind on what the food industry gets away with putting in our food and they know that it is killing us. My hubby and I are on day 42 we are so excited to start the new path we have taken with this step. I am a recovering veggie hater who is trying to reboot my taste buds. We are watching the vegan cooking shows on YouTube some really awesome people out there doing some great things. Also Pinterest has a lot of recipes you can find. Almost any kind of sauce you want to find can be made at home and vegan. I know some people can eat meat and cheese. But for me after starting a vegan life style in 2011 and not sticking with it because I started adding cheese and then when we went out I would eat meat. My husband didn't but he had a brain tumor taken out in 2011. Like John on the Vegan Zombie channel on YouTube says at first a lot of vegans aren't the best vegans. I ate to many fries. I found out McDonald's put beef fat in the fries. Yuck I never knew. You learn something all the time. So now I am excited to start cooking good veggies. I have been saving recipes and we are talking about what we will make and how to really make the changes last. One suggestion I received is to make people comfortable with the change is to invite them over for a meal and let them see how you eat and that the food is good and no one goes hungry. I know when we went plant based I filled up faster. We just have to get rid of the processed foods they are killing us.

    I really love this post, and I am curious Kathryn E which films listed above were your favorite? I feel it's important to look at juicing as a supplement to aide change. I am getting the sense that it's more important to think about what you will do after fasting than worrying about how many days you will make it. I am trying to set my mind on looking at this fast as a jump start, or a 'get off the couch' approach to changing my lifestyle choices. Cheers to your suggestions above. I will be starting a 10 day juice only fast on 3/14.

    Hi everyone!



    Just wanted to say hi and tell everyone they are doing an amazing job with their reboots!

    I'm new to this community so I still never rebooted in my life but I LOVE the taste of the juices!

    So far I replaced breakfast with a juice and drink another one with supper (along with completely changing my calorie intake from over +4000 calories a day to just 1500!). So hopefully when I start my reboot my body won't rebel against me so much :)



    I can't wait to continue reading your process!



    Keep going! :)

    Yesterday, I finished my 30 days of 30 day reboot. I have really enjoyed the last 30 days. For Christmas I bought a Fitbit so I've been very active with all the step/workout challenges. Last week I did 200,000 steps and won first place. It sure has got me up and moving. I'm sure the juicing has help greatly since it gives me a lot more energy. I've also lost a lot of inches! My clothes are too big!!!! Juice on!!!



    No my plan is to continue on a path of healthy eating. I plan to be raw and warm raw. Warm Rob meeting I love Joe's green reboot soup. As well as roasted vegetables. I plan to juice only at least two days per week.



    I can't wait to share my before and after pictures on December 31, 2016. Thank you for all your support and encouragement. I will be posting my progress here every few days. We can do this!!!



    I will also be posting some great healthy recipes! Group Hugs!!!

    Day 22 and last night decided to have a long craved turkey sandwich from Silvermine with my husband. I've dealt with feeling guilty before and refused to feel this way about this one. I enjoyed it but ended up with a bad salt headache and some sour stomach feelings later on. No weight loss because of it but I knew that before I even took a bite. Back on the saddle today feeling more relieved that I finally got that craving out of my head and honestly, I feel more in control today to keep on going. Guess I just had to test my body as to what would be the effects and I found them out so hopefully, I can use it as a good reminder against other foods that are certainly worse for me than just a turkey cheese deli sub.



    Going for honesty here so that the shame monster doesn't stay hidden.



    A few more days and I will hopefully be under 260!

    Checking in. On day 18 now with atleast a 30 day, shooting for 50 days due to upcoming vacation in March. Overall, things are pretty steady lately. Had an ankle injury so I haven't been visiting the gym lately but still losing. Just getting a little irritated with the tediousness of it all. A few more days and I hope to be below 260. Started around 280ish. Valentine's Day, my daughter's 1st birthday this month and we're all going out to dinner. Won't really partake but that's okay.



    Mid March is Vegas vacation for 4 days so I plan to stop juicing March 5th then come back and kick start another reboot. Not feeling to confident about starting all over with the juicing. It took so long to get into an accepted mental state of it all that the idea of starting over with the detox effects and hunger makes me almost not want to go on vacation sadly.

    Dreiter,

    Just plan ahead for your vacation. Tell yourself that there will be plenty of salads and veggie's on the buffets and that if you slip a little you want go crazy and just eat everything. Make sure you pack some healthy snacks like nuts, nut butter like almond. We have to realize how we will continue to eating once we aren't rebooting all the time. Watch some plant based cooking videos if that doesn't bother you. I don't get hungry I just get more determined to eat clean when I am done with this reboot. I decided with my hubby if we slip we have a day or two of a small reboot right away. Joe says he tries to reboot every 3 months or so. So I think we will try something like that so we continue to eat well and healthy.

    Checking in with all of you on Day 13 of a 30 day reboot. This last week was the first time I was able todo the half mile walk to school to pick up my son in 4 years. The look on his face was worth it. Bonus - I did not get wiped out afterwards like I usually do.



    I did find my limit. I took a yoga class. I used to do yoga every day, but it was another thing that illness took away from me. I went at my own pace and modified poses that I could not do. That night I was in a lot of pain.



    The interesting thing was that when I was tired and in pain, I really wanted to go eat some comfort food. I wasn't even hungry, but the urge was very strong. Now that I feel better, the need is gone. I even sat at the dinner table and watched everyone else eat, without a problem. OK - it smelled really good, and I wanted to eat it, but I could say no. :)



    Good luck and juice on!
