    I'm back exclusively juice rebooting for another 10 days after taking a week off to see if I could eat well and maintain the weight loss - which I could!



    Saw Joe himself today at an event but I unfortunately had to leave before getting the chance to meet him (baby had her 2 month doctor appointment)!



    Great speaker, nothing was news to me but it was nice to see fellow juicers in person before I scooted off!



    Since starting February 5th I've gotten my mom and dad juicing too! Thru purchased a juicer for the cottage as well, which is a haven of gluttony (we have beer on tap up there, if that's any indication of how our weekends play out - though I stick to wine ;))



    I hope everyone is doing well!

    I used to be a stickler for walking, and it's like I've hit a brick wall when it comes to exercise ... there's always something more pressing I need to do, yadda, yadda, yadda. I need to get my rear in gear. There are some great workout juices -- I'm getting ready to make one listed here:

    My motto ...if you come home starving, have more juice!! There's a workout regimen on this site that I'm getting ready to start today ... posting it here is making that real. . . I have to follow through now LOL. So Off to the juicer to make the Heartbreak Hill Juice, and then to the exercise regimine ... I can do this I can do this I can do this....

    That actually looks good! And I used to not like beets at all. Juicing has definately influenced my tastes over time.

    I have a question about bananas...I know they are fairly high in sugar, but I love them. I'd like to know if any of you have experimented with them and how they have affected your weight loss. Thanks!

    I have only used in smoothies or other "clean eating" dishes since it is not a juiceable item . If you are doing smoothies, as long as you are balancing the 80/20 (veggie to fruit) ratio and getting in your rainbow, having a banana if you are not juice-fasting should not be an issue. Remember to focus on flooding your body with nutrients -- not all calories are created equal One of my favorite sections from this site's "calorie" article is the reminder that calculating and counting can sometimes get in the way of our success. The author explains that: " one of the best parts about the Reboot is that because of the nature of the foods you are ingesting – all fruits and vegetables with some herbs and spices which are each packed with potent phytonutrients– you can tune in and listen to your body to figure out the “right amount” for you to consume each day. There are some general guidelines such as:
    • Strive for mostly veggies with some fruits (like 80% veg and 20% fruit)
    • Drink or eat 4-6 times per day
    • Drink plenty of water"

    Today is my first day of juicing...I'm actually using the Nutri Bullet, not sure if that's cheating or what, but I just bought it and can't justify buying a juicer yet, easing into this slowly but am trying to Juice most of the day & when I feel I need to eat, I choose salad or raw veggies... Completely exhausted, body aches & headache. Pushing through though. Anyone else using the Nutri bullet?

    :) It's not cheating, but it's not technically juicing. You're doing more of a smoothie approach, and that can be totally fine. There is a difference, b/c you'll be getting all the fiber (not just the water soluble fiber), but it is still a great way to approach getting healthier and getting more nutrients into your body. If you're doing this for weight loss, results may be a little slower, but they'll still be there. The most important thing is that you'll be feeling so much better. :) Here's a quick breakdown of the difference:

    Put myself on a forced plateau this weekend after finishing a 14 day reboot. Going to start up again tomorrow on another 14 day Reboot. I found that even while allowing myself to eat whatever I want, instead I crave fruits and veggies, and can't go without my juice for at least 2 of my meals. It's so weird how this Reboot really changes what you want to eat and what you crave.



    This next round of rebooting is going to be a cakewalk!!! 15 lbs down, 15 to go in order to hit my first goal (pre-pregnancy weight!!!) I'm expecting to drop 20 since I am doing more exercising this go-around!

    Step daughters birthday today. I think the weekend has become a festival to her. So we are about to head out for breakfast. Thankfully the place we are going to does a really good carrot juice. Will eat something solid - is yoghurt solid? and add some fruit to it. Not a typical juice day, but I have done this before over the two and a half weeks I have been juicing and am still losing weight. Probably slower than if juicing all the time, but as long as it isn't going up and my blood pressure stays down I am happy with that.



    Today I am down 3.8 kilos (8.4 pounds). 6.2 kilos to go. Blood pressure was good when I measured it this morning.



    Hope everyone else is doing well.

    Wow - what a headache. Decided that I could manage the poached fruit. Urgh. A dish I could easily get through, I now can't. It looked too much in the bowl. So a far bit got left. But the sweetness was a problem. Not having any refined sugar in a more than two weeks, and there would have been some in the poached fruit, it has hit me hard. Headache and some nausea. Mushrooms and tomatoes on wholegrain toast would have been a much better option. They forgot the juice .... !!!

    BUT my partner made comment today about how good I am looking. Made particular reference to the weight loss and smaller tummy!

    Anyone else here have to cook for someone else (husbands/wives/kids)? I've been recently cooking for my husband, making him soups and salads for dinner, and I have the habit of tasting things to make sure they taste good, need more spices, etc. But I get so bloated after doing this it seems. The two times I made dinner this week, I have been extremely bloated/gassy at night. My stomach feels full of gas, but nothing comes out, and I just have tummy pains. The first time it happened I thought it was the juice I drank, but tonight after making dinner and tasting, I feel it coming on again. Is anyone else having this issue with bloating? What do you do for it? Do any of you cook for others and not taste it? Thanks everyone!

    Hi Everyone
    Tonight I'm finishing my 10th day of juicing and so far I've been flying solo and reading about everyone's success online. Congrats to all of you out there. I've had a few rocky days - 6 & 9 were the worst and I think that's because I was putting too much green in the green juices and just couldn't stomach them any more. Back on track today and intending to do three more days to take me over the weekend. After that my daughter is here for 2 weeks and will need feeding and I'm not sure I could manage to cook for her and only juice for myself. A couple of questions for the group if you can offer any advice please - yesterday I had a very sore mouth verging on mouth ulcers - guess that's the acid in the fruit I've been using? And what should I look to eat when I do start eating again? Is there a menu plan out there?

    Check out the section on recipes - there is some information about meals in there. Good luck.

    Hmm... wonder if you have an alergy to one of the ingredients. Sometimes pineapple will do that to me. A wonderful remedy I've found is taking Lysine tablets (it's an amino acid).

    For transitioning back to eating, try using the transition meal ideas in the 15 day plan (it has 5 days of transition, 5 days of juice only, 5 days of transition juicing+eating) so the first and last five days have good "transition" ideas. Here's a good page on this site for transitioning:
