    Hi Chloe - before you quit, how much juice are you drinking? How much water? What kind of exercise are you doing? I've heard of women who gain a little while experiencing PMS, but that's just natural water retention.



    4/5 - 16 ounce servings of juice is what you should aim for



    64 ounces (2 quarts) of water or herbal tea



    any kind of exercise is good - as long as you're moving.



    I hope this helps a little.



    You can also post your question in the discussion area under "Ask the Nutritionist".

    Hello, my name is Chloe and I'm new to juicing. I started a 30+ day reboot and I'm on day 10. I'm running into a problem and was wondering if anyone has experienced this or has any advice? My first 5 days I dropped about 6lbs, but now that I've made it to day 10, I've GAINED 0.8lbs back! WHAT!!! I'm so confused and discouraged. I feel like giving up. I don't have a lot of extra weight on me so I know my weight loss will be slower, but I shouldn't be gaining!!! Has my body gone into starvation mode? Do I need to drink more glasses of juice, exercise, water? HELPPP!

    Hello all - have almost completed day one of a potential .....dare I say it ....30 day reboot and all I can think of is food !!! so am so glad that that is one of the criteria that is unmentionable :) Am following the 10 day plan to get an idea of when and what to juice and will take it from there. I have juiced before but not for any extended period so this is a first !!Hubby is juicing with me but is really suffering with headaches .....so hope he is in for the longhaul :) just a question - Out here in South Africa we don't get coconut water .....is this an important part of the programme ??

    Jeannie, hang in there through Day 3, then it will start to get better! The coconut water is for electrolytes. For me, I find that if I do a 3 or 4 day fast, I don't need it, but if I do longer it really does make a difference. I think you can buy the dehydrated coconut water on Amazon and mix it yourself??

    I just finished Day-1 of 18. The day went smoothly, but I have been tired all day and wanted to go to bed around 3:45 this afternoon. Giving piano lessons after school and entertaining at a care facility this evening made that impossible. It's merely 9:00, but it's time for bed.

    Hey Everybody!! Wow, it's been awhile since I posted but I'm so excited to share my progress. So I'm rebooting with food, just to keep things balanced with the diabetes, I'm training for a 5K and I want to include my family in the journey. The best thing about this process is that I'm now getting "juice requests". My husband got sick off a can of V8 and I said "I can do that!". So I roasted some beets, tomatoes (just to taper off the raw taste) and jalapenos, juiced them up with some celery, carrot, parsley, spinach (ok so it's not 8, but it's a work in progress). He will never buy a can of anything again! I take my son to the farmer's market and he's picking out things he'd like to try in the juice. And he actually drinks everything he makes, he's anxious to know when we're going to juice so he can try his special concoctions. This has been just great for me. I have this amazing energy, I'm feeling cleaner by the day, I'm excited to enter the Season of Eating with a new perspective and purpose. I'm making better choices and I still have days when it's hard. I'd rather take the easy route, turn back to my old ways, but I stop and think about how great I'm feeling and how proud my husband and son are of me and how much they're supporting me. I just can't turn back. I haven't tapped the scale since I started but right now I'm just enjoying my pants being a little loose and my glucose numbers are a lot lower! So much so I'm hoping that we can talk about some adjustments to the meds later next month. That would be the greatest Christmas gift I could ever ask for. Well I've rambled enough! I hope you all have a blessed holiday!! Take care!

    Hi katiejay----Just wanted to say 'hi' and wish you continued success. Kind of a low 'go' day. Take it without a doubt. I can sit on 'idle' a bit longer. Is trying my patience somewhat; but will hang in there. One day at a time, right? How's the stairclimber working for you?

    Broke my juice fast and did not do well. The monster of food addiction climbed on my back and was planning on staying there. Not a chance! I'm back on track and have completed 2/3 of my juicing day.



    Izzi - hang in there. Be patient and you'll get kicked off the mesa

Preparing for the jump from it as soon as possible. Will probably meet others along the way. I am not alone. Well, gonna try to be patient; with perserverance to make progress !!! Thanks for listening.

    Good, Day 2 here. Last night I had a burst of energy, danced around a bit!
