Good morning Feasters, I found a great way to begin your journey back to food. It is called the 21 day kickstart plan. You can register here 21 day kickstart plan and learn all about it. Since we know we should start out eating what we juice it is best to go back the vegan route, and then do what you think is best for you, remember your diet should be a lifestyle and like a baby starts out with it's mother's milk (our juice). That baby learns to eat vegetables and fruits as the next step. I hope this will be something you try out, I joined, so let's talk about it here!
Hello Rebooters, there is a huge SPAM problem that has invaded this site. I have not been active for a year, and this certainly did not exist in the past. I encourage you to flag these spam emails as inappropriate and to also send an email to the Reboot with Joe website. Hopefully is enough of us do this, they will eliminate and prevent these SPAMs as soon as possible.

Hi, I'm on day 22 of a 5 day juice only reboot. I don't want to eat solids yet but have to start thinking about it I suppose. Time is a big issue because I work shifts and I have always relied on quick junk foods during my break. I recently bought a vegan cook book to give me some ideas but the recipes look very time consuming and I worry that the ease of junk food will tempt me back to my former bad habits. Any tips?
Hi, Lolli. Congrats on Day 22! That's super wonderful! Have you had good results with the reboot?
And to be sure, after this reboot, you will continue making the switch to vegan eating? I mean, you did not eat vegan before this reboot? ( I am just thinking that because you bought the vegan cook book.) If switching now, you have that to figure out, how to eat vegan and healthy. (But you figured out the juicing so you got this!)
I'm going to agree with you that I have found a lot of vegan cookbooks (not only vegan) very difficult. Same with some eating - reboot type plans. Just too complicated!! I think the authors of these plans feel that they have to provide a lot of variety day to day... but then I end up spending hours and hours every day in the kitchen cooking and prepping. It can be overwhelming! There can also be a lot of waste, with the author calling for a little bit of something or only one serving of a recipe when I have to buy or cook several, but they never USE the other bits. Arrgh.
There are surely people who do that "all day in the kitchen complicated bit" without thinking, whether conventional foodies or vegan chefs. BUT for me, it's just too much! I need SIMPLE. Complicated recipes are for a treat, special days! I try to get my own and my family's food into a routine so I don't have to think so much about it.
Do you want tips on just "snacks at work" or the whole shebang of how to figure out eating vegan while working shifts? ( And then, there's coming off a reboot to think about when you get there.)

Hello, Advice please? I did my first 5 day reboot and lost 14.lbs after finishing the reboot I began a plant based whole foods diet, with juice watching my weight, 2lb crept back on? how can I ensure I lose more? thinking about picking the reboot up again? or just juice mostly with one meal of salad/brownrice/beans/lentils a day? I'm lost what to do, I'd hate to pile it all back on when I am infact eating healthy.
good for you wirezuk! I am on day 14 out of 21 and I lost 16.6 lbs as of today! 7 days to go! End on Mother's day!! I wish I saw some replies to your post here! Where else would those replies be?? I will have the very same questions! :) Good luck!
WTG on the reboot! There's a plant-based eating after reboot you can join. I've seen the group (discussion?) when I've viewed all under "recent activity." (Bottom right of your screen. Of course, you also have to wade thru the daily spam there; gets worse on weekends. But it's a good way to see what's going on other groups and such, good way to find active groups.)
I did TEN days-reboot...actually, I didn't even know there was this community site until just now....but, that aside, I did a full 10 days and feel awesome. I treated myself to a homemade organic burger on spinach just cause I felt like I wanted one. Didn't know about this advice until after the fact about "easing back into food"..well, that aside - did it. And, I realize now why you should "ease into it"....I plan on continuing to juice - just feel so much healthier. Otherwise, I have to say - I did great on my reboot....didn't have fatigue/headaches...even did 1 hr 4 days/week of Orange Theory Fitness training so amped up my weightloss.....For all questioning to do this: DO IT! you won't regret it!!!
That's a fantastic accomplishment!!! Good luck as you transition back into whole foods again :-)
thank you for share your experience
I am on day 50 of my reboot and feel great lost 30 lbs. and in ten days I will be going off the reboot in part. I intend to still juice often but enjoy some tastes of food that i missed during the reboot. (Yes, that includes gradually adding foods, such as salads etc).
I am planning on hitting the reboot again after 3-4 weeks off of completely juicing. I still intend to lose 30 lbs more. Would I most likely lose weight more quickly at the beginning of the restarting of this , similar to the one I am currently on. Where i dropped 24 lbs the first 30 days but it has been SLLOOOOOWW going the last couple of weeks?
Thanks in advance for everyone’s input.
@Sweetwun WOW good run on the 50 days (55 today... as this was posted 5 days ago :-)) That is INCREDIBLE!!! How have you felt while on your cleanse? The longest i went was 30 days last April. I 'finally' got around to committing to a 3 day cleanse after months of thinking about it and... I just finished Day 7 today LOL So... it looks like I'm going to go for longer... am thinking 30 days and will take it from there.
I would like to think that re-introducing solids back into your diet for the 3-4 weeks will be enough to trick your body into responding to the next reboot in the same manner as it did for the first one. People often get stuck at the same weight 'plateau' while following other ways of fueling their body, and its often recommended they change things up, aka add calories or try a new exercise for a few weeks, etc., and then the scale starts moving again.
I lost 20lbs during my 30 day cleanse last year, but had re-introduced 1 meal a day that consisted of my pulp crackers with homemade hummus and fresh vegetables around day 17 as I was needed to wean back into solids before a 2 week vacation to St. Lucia. I'm not going anywhere this spring, so... I'm thinking strictly juicing for 30 days and am excited to see what my results will be this time around.
Did you introduce protein powder daily yet? If not, maybe that's all you need to do to get things moving nicely again.'
Cheers & Happy Juicing!
Wow Cheryl it's fantastic. Congratulations. What's inspiration!
