    Hello RM, Sophie, Cheri

    I am well and working hard in garden and on projects. I have decided to take a break from social media until September as it seems to drain my time. I am looking forward to a sculpting class over one week in June.

    I wish you all a great summer. Keep safe and healthy.

    Happy Tuesday Everyone! I have been reading some articles on Ayurvedic Medicine and learned that they recommend drinking warm to hot water, and not cold water. The study said that warm to hot water is more hydrating. I had not read this before, and was wondering if others follow these recommendations and have noticed a difference. This is an interesting idea, and would be easy to implement if warm/hot water is a benefit. I look forward to your feedback.



    "Cold water is not as good for hydration as room temperature. The theory is that the cold water causes the blood vessels surrounding stomach to shrink, slowing absorption. The problem is that as the COLD drinks pass through our system, they solidify the fats from the foods we have just eaten or are eating at present. This makes it challenging for the body to digest and disperse the unwanted fats from our body. However, if we simply swap our cold drinks for a warm drink (warm water/coffee/tea/herbals) the warm fluids help the fats in our foods to remain fluid and so easing the digestive system and helping the fats pass through our body (and reduce the risk of clogged arteries).

    It makes sense since our bodies are warm. It seems that with meals at least we should have warm drinks instead of cold to keep the fats moving.

    I always drink hot or room temperature water as I drink boiled water. Boiling water removes the chlorine, so I always take my water from the kettle.

    RM - how much ginger juice in hot water each morning to help metabolism?

  • Shari

    6 months ago

    Maddogcupcake, when I was doing the ginger juice in the morning, I was using 3 tablespoons in 4 ounces of warm water, but that might be a little strong for some people. I would drink the ginger juice and then some water after it, between swallows of ginger juice. I saw a difference the first week, but after that not so much.

    Hi Anna, how are you doing? I happened upon the wonderful benefits of ginger juice last Fall, when I was having terrible acid reflux type problems. It ended up being some sort of bacteria, but it hurt bad just like GERD does. I could not eat anything without pain, and remembered that ginger is a wonderful anti-inflammatory. As you know, many of the reboot juice recipes have "juice 1-2 inches of ginger" in them. I was in so much pain, and so desperate, that I bought a whole pound of fresh ginger, juiced it solo, and put it in a glass jar for the refrigerator. I started with one teaspoon in a cup of hot water, sipping it down to soothe my esophagus area. I then gradually increased to 2 teaspoons at a time, 3 times a day, 1 tablespoon X 3 times, and for a couple days did 2 or 3 tablespoons 3 times a day. It really worked to heal my esophagus, and during the 2-3 weeks I did this I noticed that I was losing weight and burning fat. I researched it, and found out that ginger juice is actually increases the metabolism. I still drink 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger juice, 3 times a day, and it continues to keep my metabolism high. It takes alot of ginger to juice even 1 tablespoon of ginger juice, and I calculated that 1 tablespoon is about 8-10 inches of raw ginger. Putting that much ginger juice into one of the great Reboot juice recipes would over-power the recipe, but when I drink it alone in hot water it is great. I love hot drinks anyway, and even love drinking hot tea in the summer. Here are some great articles to read about ginger, and it's impact on the metabolism. Hope this helps.

    RM, maybe the trick is to spread it out and drink it a few times a day instead of just in the morning like I was doing. I had a good loss yesterday and am back to where I was at the beginning of October last year...just 12.6 pounds left to lose.

    I wanted to share a wonderful Beet Soup recipe that is also PALEO. The recipe is from Dr. Alvin Danenberg, who is a dentist specializing in nutritional periodontistry. As you know, I have been experiencing dental pain from an aggressive and negligent dental cleaning and found this dentist to help me. I have been following his nutritional protocol and discovered that he also has some terrific PALEO recipes on his site. I made this Beet Soup this weekend, and it is delicious.

    Happy Sunday Everyone! In honor of Anna and Shari's great progress , I wanted to share a wonderful article from CNN Nutritionist Lisa Drayer. This is a good plan to follow after your reboot is finished, to keep the weight off. This definitely worked for me. New research indicates that WHEN you eat is as important as WHAT you eat. Basically, the research showed that eating most of your calories at breakfast and lunch, and a small dinner keeps the weight off. Tips for eating in sync with circadian rhythms: 1. Don't skip breakfast (have it be 300 calories or more), 2. Make lunch the main meal of the day, 3. Pack an afternoon snack if the time between lunch and dinner is more than five hours apart. Snack around 200 calories, and high in protein and fiber. This will prevent you arriving at dinner feeling starving. 4. Make dinner light and low carb (read NO CARB).

    RM, I have read that too. I read that you should have the most calories for breakfast, then decreasing amount of calories for the other two meals. I also read eating smaller meals more frequently can help too.

  • Maddogcupcake

    6 months ago

    Thanks, RM! I had also read that you should front-load calories, i.e. eat to fuel for the hours ahead like giving a car gas before a trip. At dinner you are only eating for the hours you'll be sleeping, so calories should be low and foods should be easily digestible.

    Hi, everybody! I'm Anna. I'm officially switching over to this group now, as the last day of my 90 day fast was yesterday - woot woot! So ready for this new phase. That was a slow, long, hard, fast, easy, exhilarating, frustrating 3 month roller coaster - and for an excruciating 20 days of it I was on vacation in Europe and New York. Phew! I now embark on a vegan 3 week ramp up to normal consumption (3 meals a day). I look forward to your posts and sharing recipes. Have a great Sunday and JUICE ON!

  • RM

    CONGRATULATIONS ANNA........This is a huge accomplishment. I can not believe that you stayed true during your 20 day vacation in Europe and New York. You deserve a medal for that. How do you feel? What did you learn? I am so glad you have a 3 week vegan transition plan in place. This is an excellent plan. The important steps are to gently wake your digestive system back up, as it has taken a much needed rest for 90 days. I look forward to hearing your 90 day reboot summary, and your transition progress. Are you exercising? How is your metabolism? My key to keeping the weight off was to focus on improving my metabolism, as it slowed down during the reboot.

    I just ended my third week of juice fasting with two more to go. I have lost 11.6 pounds and 7.25 inches over six measurements so far. Only 13.8 pounds left to get to my goal. At my current loss rate, I won't get there in two weeks, but it will be closer.

    This is fantastic Shari.....Good Job. Have you started back on the fresh ginger juice, in hot water? Keeping your metabolism up will help burn more calories. Has this reboot been harder than the first? How many ounces of juice are your drinking per day?

    No, I have not done the ginger juice. It worked for the first week last time, but then I no longer had the losses. I kept doing it even then for at least a month or two, but no change. Yes, this one has been more of a challenge than the last one. I am drinking four juices a day like before. I think this time I had not gotten myself in the mindset of doing it like last time, although I have stuck with it. I will be closer to my goal at the end, so I am pleased with that even though the loss has not been as great as the same time frame in the first one. I gained some back yesterday, but I hope I can lose a reasonable amount before I go back to eating.

    Happy Friday Everyone! I like reading at least one new health related article each day, and I always benefit from learning something new. Today is one of those days with this article on Sunflower Oils. The educated author explains the importance of buying a safe sunflower oil, because there are many sunflower oils out there that are chemically treated or rancid. In fact, the Spectrum organic sunflower oil in the pictures is actually the sunflower oil I sometimes buy. I learned alot from this article, and I hope you find it helpful too. Still juicing.

    Hey Maddocupcake, glad to hear from you. I added some goat cheese, although the recipe I was using did not have any cheese in it. I had some goat cheese to use up, so sprinkled it on the salad. It was yummy.
