  • About: I'm 53 year old female, 80 pounds overweight, with arthritis in my knees, and constant feet and ankle problems due to obesity. I just realized this year that I am a binge eater. I don't eat huge amounts of food, but once I start, it's hard to stop eating all the wrong things. I can't even classify what I eat as food because it's junk in my body with no nutritional value.

    Today is one week since I started juicing. The first days were strictly juice so I guess I could say I've done a 3 day reboot. I have had to grab a few fruits over the last few days due to my crazy schedule this week. I feel great and don't feel bad about putting something healthy in my mouth. A few nuts, grapes, strawberries, and a banana. I'm 8 pounds down this morning. 217 down to 209 from last Tuesday. The weight loss is great and my clothes feel better. Yesterday I gave away several size 2X that are getting too loose. I can't wait until I have nothing in my closet with an X on the label!

    Connie...imho...but I am well versed in all this stuff. LOL

    you cant eat solid food...even if its fruit...that starts digestion up. go 3 to 5 days with no solid food...and your digestion stops. Then you are not hungry and it is only psychological.

    to juice then take a nibble is self defeating like trying to cut down on nicotine. The drug cries out feed me, feed me. The symptoms are all the withdrawals happening. Don't stop.YOu wont die. a sick animal goes under a tree and rests and does not eat. but humans think they need their food....NO...let body heal.

    Hi Angie. My end goal is to change the way I eat to live a healthier life and lose the extra weight. This first week has been mostly juice, (the first 4-5 days was only juice) but I don't consider myself on a strict liquid only diet or fast. I have no health issues beside the knees and ankles and I'm already feeling better since the inflammation is down. I have not put one unhealthy food in my mouth and I'm feeling the benefits. And I have chewed very little in the last 8 days. From the Rebooting page. >>

    What is a Reboot?

    A period of time where you commit to consuming only fruit and vegetables in the form of juice or juice plus eating. Our Rebooting plans are a powerful way to hydro-boost your system by drinking 100 percent liquid sunshine or eating restorative plant-based energy to regain or sustain your vitality, lose weight, fight disease and kick-start healthy habits.

    Wow, looking over my first wall posts, it's been 4 months since I watched FSAND and wanted to start a juice fast. I finally restarted, this past Tuesday, September 8. I'm on Day 6 and feeling great. Day 3 I felt tired, but more sleepy tired. I started getting more energy by day 3, but still had that sleepy feeling. OH!! Yesterday, Day 4 was a busy day for me. I started off with a green juice but forgot to take one with me. I had to get something while I was out so I picked up a 100% carrot juice at Walmart, nothing else added. It took a little getting use to, but I immediately started feeling better. Weird thing was that I felt like I had taken a stimulant because my energy and mental clarity was so sharp. Hard to explain, but what I am learning is that if I want my body to feel young and alive, I need to be eating foods that keep me energized and fruits and veggies do just that. I'm back where I was two months ago. 214 this morning, 15 more pounds to my first goal of 199.

    this day is what i posted prio to reading...you have surge of energy after 3 days of no solid food. the carrot juice is high in sugar, but its better than eating a carrot. the juice wont start up the digestion. 75% of your energy GOES TO DIGESTION. cut that off and you are raring to go...however, if you need to rest..then rest. Your body is cleaning up stuff you ate for years.

    Haven't been juicing, but I am eating more fruits and veggies and very little processed food, if any. The scale was 215 this morning. I hope it stays down so I can end another plateau. My knees were killing me yesterday, a reminder that I need to be having at least one green drink every day. Now to do it. I feel a lot better on juice or when eating an alkaline diet.

    I'm still juicing. Not taking in nearly enough juice. By the time I slow down at night, I have a fruit for dinner. I have had enough energy. Today I stopped at a smoothie place and asked for the healthiest one they offered. I was running all day on maybe 150 calories. I need to look it up that smoothie online because it tasted like it could have sugar, although they assured me none was added. Scale was 223.6 this morning. Haven't seen that since last summer when I worked hard and got down to 217 for my nieces wedding. First goal, get lower than 217.

    Six pounds in my first 5 days and today was epic fail. I ate mostly healthy, but I had sugar. I should not have tried a fruit juice drink today. It was so sweet and gave me cravings. I should have diluted it with water. Tomorrow is Mother's Day and I've got to go out of town. I'm starting my day with a green juice. I'm not sure what my husband has planned. I think I need to reboot my first juice fast and start over on Monday. Time to get my head screwed on right.
