Feel free to follow my daily Facebook blogposts on Juicing & Plant-Based Whole Foods at: http://www.facebook.com/WholisticWeightLoss.htm . . . My wife Elisabeth (a transplanted expat Canuck from Vancouver) and I have always been health conscious individuals but failed to recognize diet related to our own obesity and health issues. Until recently - I have always struggled with my weight since grade school - but now with a strong advocacy for plant-based whole foods and a veggie juicing reboot lifestyle we have collectively lost 190 pounds and regained our health by alleviating a long-list of chronic and debilitating ailments. I started Reboot Juicing as a last resort because I had tried everything else. Even 20 years in the Health & Wellness field did not address overwhelming food addictions, dietary myths, chronic ailments and obesity. After watching FS&ND - I got the 'kick in the pants' I had been missing and have maintained and sustained weight loss of 150 pounds and have continued daily veggie reboot juicing and plant-based eating lifestyle ever since. My wife inadvertently lost 40 pounds just preparing and eating my new plant-based recipes - within 3 weeks of adopting reboot vegetable juicing and consuming more plant-based foods her debilitating osteo complaints began to reverse and after one year abstaining from animal-derived products we have both regenerated and gained optimum health.

  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: I have been a member since just after the release of the Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead movie in August 2011 and joined the old 'join the reboot' website in summer 2011. I joined because viewing the movie and doing a 3-day Reboot created a personal paradigm shift that altered my life in ways I never expected.
  • Favorite Juice? Daily 48+ ounces: carrots, celery, cucumber, kale, beet, green apple and a knob of ginger. sometimes I also use fennel, turnip greens, romaine lettuce or dandelion greens or kitchen scraps like broccoli stalks or herbs.
  • Food temptation? used to be sugar, refined simple carbs and big meat --- now, on special occasions I eat salmon sushi.

    Sorry I haven't posted anything for a week or so...My wife & I went to Las Vegas to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. I needed to pay some special attention to my lady and avoided all the social media stuff. Even though I have been an avid rebooter going on 5 years now, improving your health is a 'tough row to hoe' -- for myself, it took 1-1/2 to 2 years to completely transition to an exclusive plant-based approach and when I did, I have been able to maintain and sustain my weight loss and health. I drink juice everyday and eat plants at every meal. However, as soon as I would stray a little, or "a bite of this" or a "bite of that"....Boom - 5 pounds gained, a sleepless night and a shirt that didn't fit.

    Presently, I do not crave animal flesh, dairy, eggs, sugar or processed refined/packaged and junk foods, as a matter of fact - I get a little nauseous when I look at those foods and definitely feel ooky if I inadvertently eat those ingredients hidden in restaurant foods . This past weekend on our Anniversary celebration, my wife & I ate one of our old favorites from past years (any special occasion we went to get doughnuts - plural, usually a dozen!) -- a Krispy Kreme glazed/raspberry filled doughnut! YOWZA-- what a head rush of sugar. Betty's throat closed up and she got a headache almost immediately. About an hour later, both of us were belching & burping doughnut! BLECH

    After that experience, we will be forever abstaining from Krispy Kreme and immediately moved on to our now favorite Vegan Restaurant for "green tea tofu cheesecake with cashew Cherry Chocolate Soya ice creme and an almond crust, decorated with a Lotus root crisp"

    [img src="">

    For dinner we ate the best non-chicken and not-fish we have ever tasted. we think it tasted even better than real animal chicken and fish. All of these food photos are Reboot Friendly foods if you can believe it! There are options to SAD when you venture forth and seek out alternatives to old ways. You can teach an old dog new tricks! This place was my wife's idea and somewhere she has wanted to try for about a year. They use the old school Buddhist preparation of Seitan, Tempeh and Tofu and have many years of training in plant-based cuisine.

    The following photos have no meat/animal, dairy, or eggs -- everything is plant-based foods without the guilt, deprivation, restriction or need to count calories.

    Eat More Plants = Weigh Less

    ^ SALT N' PEPPER FISCH It's the thin wrap of nori seaweed that makes this dish outta this world. it reminded me of Black Cod fried Fish. I was blown away! I had thought that a Buddhist Veggie Restaurant would be puritan foods, or flavorless foods. boy did I get an eye-opener. We even had a Wonton Soup and a delish Cilantro salad with a smoky tasting tofu cheese interspersed through out. Just Cilantro with a few sprigs of Spinach and this tangy lemony dressing with a smoky tasting cheese -- I thought it was Smoked Gouda!

    [img src="">

    I am a changed man forever after visiting this place. Gone are my days of Mongolian Beef, Sweet n' Sour Pork and Chicken Low Mein. I will never doubt the Buddhist's again and will seek out Vegan establishments wherever I find myself.

    P.S. there was even a Juice Bar Vegan Diner that we found. And I was able to stick to my daily Modified Reboot Juicing & plantbased foods lifestyle while on vacation! So when visiting the most sinful and indulgent cities in the world-- get off the strip, and away from the casinos ..... Seek out VEGGIE HOUSE RESTAURANT on Spring Mtn Blvd. and VIOLETTES VEGAN on Desert Inn. There is even VEGE NATION on 7th & Carson just off Fremont Street in Old Downtown Vegas. Give me a buzz and let me know your coming and I'll meet you there!

    Its Not your Fault -- You are Addicted!

    How to Lose Weight Without Losing Your Mind - Doug Lisle 1hr-15min

    You Have What It Takes to Get Healthy!

    Submitted on May 26, 2010 - 1:30pm Author: Doug Lisle, Ph.D.

    An important factor in determining whether we are successful or not when undertaking a difficult endeavor is our own confidence that we have what it takes. Psychologists call this self-efficacy, a term coined by eminent Stanford University research psychologist Albert Bandura. Bandura and other investigators have repeatedly shown that if you believe that you can accomplish something, it is much more likely that you will.

    What is being suggested here is not some sort of magic. It is not an attempt to sell you the idea that if you can believe it, you can achieve it. That type of thinking is obviously incorrect. For example, a schoolboy might truly believe that he can run a mile in under four minutes, but an unfounded belief cannot alter true physical limitations. What is being suggested by self-efficacy theory is that if you really have the innate capability to do something, but you don't believe that you can do it, then you may unnecessarily fail!

    Math lesson adds up

    One experiment that Bandura and his colleague Dale Schunk conducted helps to demonstrate the importance of self-confidence. Students who were having difficulty in arithmetic were selected for special help. These students were each given a self-instruction booklet, which contained 42 pages of instruction and related exercises. Students were then randomly assigned to one of two experimental groups. In the first group, students were told that a reasonable goal was to try to complete the 42-page booklet by the end of seven study sessions (one study session per school day). We might describe this first group as being the One Big Goal Group because they were oriented towards thinking that the goal was to finish the entire booklet, rather than to work toward smaller subgoals.

    In the second group, students were told that a reasonable goal would be to complete six pages of the booklet per study session for each of the seven days. We might describe this group as the "One Step at a Time Group." Other than these instructions, there were no differences in help given, answering of questions, or any other difference in the treatment of the two groups. Because students were randomly assigned to one of the two groups, there were no initial differences in overall ability between the two groups.

    Bandura and Schunk suspected that they were helping the students in the "One Step" group by mentally breaking up the overall goal into smaller goals. They therefore expected that these students would gain confidence by taking the overall task just one section at a time. The authors expected that these students would work harder, persevere more often through difficulties, and ultimately learn and achieve more than students assigned to the "One Big Goal" group.

    One step at a time

    The results were clear, and astounding. On an achievement test used to measure students, mastery of the material, those in the "One Step at a Time Group" substantially outperformed the "One Big Goal Group." The average student in the "One Step at a Time" group was able to obtain an 80% score on a mastery test, whereas the average student in the "One Big Goal" group was only able to answer 40% of the problems correctly. Just as important, students in the "One Step at a Time" group wound up with much greater ratings of self-confidence, and were much more likely to persevere when a difficult problem was presented! The reason for the differences between the two groups was that students in the "One Step" group were much more likely to methodically work their way through the instruction booklet, and thus developed greater mastery.

    These results give us clear evidence of an important insight into human motivation. If a problem seems "too big," we often won't stick with it, and lose our confidence. Alternatively, if we can find creative ways to chop big problems into a series of smaller ones, our confidence, motivation, and efforts, and thus our results, can improve dramatically.

    Obstacles to healthful living

    Living a healthful lifestyle in the modern environment can present a formidable challenge. There are several major types of obstacles in our way, each of them alone being enough to knock us off course. One of the most important of these types of obstacles is what we refer to collectively as channel factors. These are factors in our real-life situations that can make it more difficult for us to actually do the sorts of health-promoting behaviors that we intend to do.

    Channel factors can be surprisingly important in either promoting or derailing behavioral intentions. For example, when soliciting business by mail, one of the most important factors is whether the business owner includes a postage-paid envelope! No matter if what is being sold costs over $100, and the additional cost of the stamp to the potential customer is negligible, the would-be customers are much less likely to buy if they have to go to the slight additional effort of finding a stamp.

    With health behavior, these "channel factors" are almost always in opposition to our good intentions. The most convenient, and most socially acceptable, foods are usually the least healthful. Eating wisely usually requires more planning, more time and energy, and some additional skill development. In addition, because healthful foods can take longer to prepare, we often face a longer period of time between the impulse to eat and when we actually start eating.

    With all of these forces pushing against us, it is little wonder that our best intentions often fall short. The greatest danger, however, lies not in our short-term failures. The most critical damage that these "Channel factor" problems can cause is the damage to our self-confidence! When our good intentions are consistently derailed, we can start to believe that we simply "don't have what it takes" to live healthfully. To adopt this belief would be a serious mistake.

    Personality and behavior

    One of the most important discoveries in social science in the past few decades has been the finding that people believe too strongly that personality differences are responsible for the behavioral differences they see between individuals.

    By contrast, people typically underestimate the importance of situational forces that give rise to individual behavior. This can be a dangerous error when it comes to health behavior. People often think that if they have failed to live healthfully, the reason is that they lack some essential personality characteristic!

    They may feel they are a "bad" or a "weak" person. They often fail to appreciate that subtle situational forces have conspired to disrupt their efforts. This belief that personality characteristics are the key feature in determining behavior can act like an optical illusion. It can cause us to make mistakes about how reality really works, and lead us to underestimate the importance of paying attention to situational influences. An example may help to illustrate this "personality" versus "situation" illusion.

    Personality vs. situations

    If you were trying to get college students to contribute to a canned food drive, which would be the most important task: finding people with helpful personalities, or creating situational forces that would make contributions more likely? Professor Lee Ross and his colleagues at Stanford attempted to find out, and the results of their investigation are instructive.

    Their study was designed to examine both personality and situational factors in determining behavior, and also to examine which of these two types of factors is most important. The researchers divided students into four groups and studied their responses to a common request: to contribute to a canned food drive.

    How the study worked

    Students were asked to nominate their classmates for either one of two groups. One group was for those considered "most likely" to contribute to a canned food drive. The other was for those considered "least likely" to contribute. Once the nominations were completed, the investigators divided each of these groups in half. One half of the "most likely" students was assigned to an "assisted" group (group 1), the other half to an "unassisted" group (group 2). The same procedure was carried out with the "least likely" students (groups 3 and 4).

    The students in the two "assisted" groups were provided with specific situational forces designed to make it easier for them to contribute. Each student received a letter that addressed him or her by name; they were given specific instructions as to what foods were being requested; and they were given the address and a map to where the contributions could be dropped off. In addition, these students were given a "reminder" phone call during the week of the event. All of these factors were designed to facilitate behavior, rather than to impede it.

    By contrast, the students in the two "unassisted" groups were provided with general information designed to make it slightly more difficult to contribute, so that the likelihood of contributing would be based primarily on their personalities. These students also were sent a letter, but this letter was merely addressed to "Dear Student," and there were no specific recommendations about which foods to bring. Likewise, the address to where the contributions could be dropped off was listed, but no map was provided. Finally, no "reminder" phone call was placed. These situational factors were designed to subtly impede contributing behavior.

    Student predictions

    How do you think each of the various groups contributed? The results may surprise you. They certainly surprised students who were asked the same question.

    Students, none of whom were in any of the four groups, were apprised of the study's design. Afterwards, they were asked to make their best guess as to what percentage of subjects in each group would contribute to the food drive. A lot can be learned from their predictions. (See Chart 2.)

    Students predicted that 82% of the students in the "most likely/assisted" group would contribute. They predicted that 80% of the students in the "most likely/unassisted" group would contribute. By contrast, they predicted that only 17% of the students in the "least likely/assisted" group would contribute, and that 16% of the "least likely/unassisted" group would contribute.

    Clearly, these predictions indicate that students believed that personality factors, and not situational "channel" factors, were by far the most important issues in predicting behavior! The students showed almost no consideration for the situational forces that might be at play. Instead, they believed that the "most likely" students could reasonably be expected to contribute, regardless of situation, about 80% of the time. Likewise, they predicted that the "least likely" students would contribute about 16-17% of the time, regardless of situational forces. The students guessed wrong.

    Surprising results

    The results were much different than most people would reasonably predict. (See Chart 3.) Students considered "most likely" to help who were in the "assisted" group contributed only 42% of the time. Furthermore, students considered "most likely" to help who were in the "unassisted" group contributed a mere 8% of the time. Just as surprising were the results for "least likely" students. Those in the "assisted" group contributed a remarkable 25% of the time, while those in the "unassisted" group contributed 0% (that's right, zero percent) of the time.

    These results provide a terrific example of not only the importance of situational forces in behavior, but also serve to highlight our natural tendency to overestimate personality factors in behavior. Note that the results show that the so-called "least likely" to help students in the "assisted" group were more than three times more likely to contribute than the "most likely" to help students in the "unassisted" group. The message is clear: situational forces are very powerful, and underestimated, sources of influence in our behavior.

    You do have what it takes!

    In my work as the psychologist for the TrueNorth Health Center, one of my main tasks is to help patients understand our most fundamental psychological message: You have what it takes to live healthfully! Not uncommonly, patients come to the Center after a period of getting off track, to get a period of rest, healing, and psychological rejuvenation. Often, when patients are nearing the end of their stay, they become concerned that they may somehow be missing some special characteristic, some kind of personality magic, that separates those who seem to keep on track from those who stumble.

    An important task we have at the Center is to convince each patient that the power to live healthfully is already in his or her own hands. The "Big Goal" is to live healthfully, and that may seem overwhelming, and perhaps beyond one's capacities. But we take pains to explain and convince our patients that the "Big Goal" is just a target, and that it is really made up of a series of little goals. For example, getting used to fixing oatmeal and fruit for breakfast; planning a weekly menu; preparing a permanent shopping list to help make shopping and meal planning less mentally taxing; and carrying healthful snacks in your car so that you have something to help you resist the "pull" of unhealthful convenience snacks. Likewise, you can plan to do a "big cooking" once or twice a month, when you make soups and other entrees in bulk, and freeze some of the extra food for later convenience.

    Reason for confidence

    If you have struggled and stumbled from time to time on your way to healthful living, take heart! There is no "personality part" that you are missing that you must somehow cultivate. You don't need a year of group therapy, or some special psychiatric "self-discipline" pill. You already have what it takes to make your healthful lifestyle happen.

    When you stumble, pay attention to what small factors conspired to defeat you, and steel yourself to find a solution. Piece by piece, and battle by battle, you can put together a winning formula. Don't think that a bad day or a bad week means that you don't have what it takes to succeed.

    You do have what it takes. And you will discover this if you will just have a bit of patience with yourself, and keep at it, one step at a time. HealthPromoting.com

    I have been super juicy busy these last few months so I apologize for my absence in updating my status. My wife and I have been traveling, learning and making new juicy-plantbased-wholefoodist connections. We completed a Plant-based Physicians Intensive Conference in San Diego where we met such noted physicians like Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son Dr. Thomas Campbell, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Michael Greger of NutritionFacts.org, Dr's Lederman, Pulde, Lisle and Mason from Forks Over Knives fame and Juicing Clinicians Dr. Michael Klaper, Dr. Goldhamer, Dr. Gabriel Cousens and Dr. Brian Clement, and Juicing Gurus Jay Kordich and Charlotte Gerson.

    We attended the Vegsource.com Healthy Lifestyle Expo in Santa Clarita California and ate plant-based lunches with many of the notables mentioned above and were exposed to Engine2Diet Rip Esselstyn, Ann Crile and Jane Esselstyn, among many others.

    The one common theme amongst all of them and including what has worked for myself and my family is the ideal human diet is to 'Relax & Enjoy - Eat & Drink Plants'....we can all aspire to be happy, healthy herbivores and reverse degenerative disease and overcome chronic ailments, obesity, heart disease, cancers, osteo and auto-immune disorders with a juicing and plant-based wholefoodist lifestyle. Joe Cross and REbootwithJoe.com has discovered this, thanks to Joe - I have discovered this, all the above mentioned Plant-Based Doctors and Nutrition Scientists have spent their lives discovering this, Oodles of other experts and 50+ Years of research has discovered this. When will everyone catch on? When the word spreads and the testimonials of recovered health abound!

    During my journeys the last couple months the number one question asked of me was what I thought of Joe's new Movie Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 and on hearing of Phil Staples (Which as a REboot Ambassador, I was grateful to see in September at its Premiere). In response to this question, I want to post a letter to Phil from Lori Fryd in response to Phil's Article he wrote for MindBodyGreen with his thoughts to his legions of fans from FSND. Read it for yourself by following the links below.



    These are my sentiments exactly and why I share the beautifully eloquent words of Lori Fryd.



    Lori Fryd

    September 20 at 4:38am · West Orange, NJ · Edited

    Still Trim, Healthy & Very Much Alive: I can't speak for the other 19,999,999 viewers of "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead," but Phil Jay Staples did not let me down.

    It was recently revealed that Phil suffered a setback and has put back on the weight he lost during the filming of this landmark documentary. I read Phil's open letter to his legion of followers and well wishers. In it, he expressed regret that he had let everybody down.

    Well, here's what I think:

    You come to me and you tell me that Phil regained weight and is in poor health because of a diet of fresh vegetable juices and fruit and veg, THEN I am let down. You tell me that a whole food, plant-based nutritional program left Phil overweight and in poor health....and THEN I am devastated. Then, you will have to gather me up off the floor and revive me. Then you will have to take me to the nearest emergency room and hook me up to a morphine drip. Because the day that fresh organic fruits and vegetables fail to provide me with the key to health - I am lost. I've got nowhere to go if that happens.

    But you tell me that Phil suffered a setback and he returned to the Standard American Diet and now he is back where he started, well, I adore that man and I pray for his health and his longevity - but that does not let me down so much as it reinforces everything I know about nutrition and the devastating consequences of SAD.

    My health and longevity do not depend upon Phil or anyone else to be a lifelong demonstration of the benefits of eating a plant-based diet. My health depends on me and my willingness to begin each and every day with a renewed commitment to resist the temptations of the toxic food environment in which I live.

    Nobody else is attached to my body and nobody else's actions are going to make or break this commitment that I have made to myself. Not my family, not my closest friends, not a decent beautiful man like Phil. Nobody. Just me.

    Those of us who seek out others to support them while they break away from the norm of living in SAD Land and try to regain or maintain their health would do well to remember that, though we can look up to others to give us hope and inspire us, nobody else has the power to control our health destinies.

    Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead gave millions of people the understanding they needed and the tools they so desperately lacked to take back their lives. It demonstrated in an engaging, effective way that our bodies need and respond to plant foods in a way very few people knew before. And Phil's journey back to health absolutely reflected that truth.

    Whatever happened years after the cameras shut down and Joe Cross returned to Aussie Land can never detract from the powerful message of that movie. The film was not made to demonstrate that people will never have upsets in their lives and return to poor eating habits. The film was made to demonstrate that plant foods heal our bodies and restore our health. In my mind, that lesson has been learned and nothing that happened after the cameras stopped rolling will ever change that.

    The Standard American Diet let Phil down and it has let us all down and that is where our disappointment and our finger-pointing should be directed.

    As for Phil, those of us who care about you pray for your return to health. No one can EVER dispute the documented impact of plant-based foods on your life and now, for that matter, how the typical American diet wreaks its deadly toll on all of us.

    Phil, mate, you didn't let me down. You are a sweet, kind and sincere person with a heart of gold and your size and your struggles will never change my opinion of you. Anyone who watched that film and resonated with your dignity and your decency can never be let down by you. The number on the scale and your food choices will never change who you are.

    So, stop worrying about me, Phil, and grab yourself a green juice get back on the path to health. We are all in this together and the foods we were all designed to eat will never let any of us down.

    You taught us that, Mr. Staples.

    Mission accomplished, mate.

    Love, Lori

    My personal opinion is eat what you want, but if you are fat, sick & nearly dead or tired and fed-up with your health status..... understand the vast differences of the foods you are eating and know the difference between those that promote health and foods that are an indulgence and cause disease.

    Ultimately, To each his own -- but, get the facts, act accordingly, juice responsibly.

  • Juicing & Plant-Based Whole Food Society - Eat & Drink Plants!

    Thanks for your interest and support. My intention is to create a group that goes beyond a classic 3/10/15/30/60 day reboot regimen into a reboot juicing/eating lifestyle shift. No need to re-gain pounds and re-do hard-earned rebooting efforts. I have reversed all disease, diabetes, chronic ailments, and have maintained and sustained a 150 pound weight loss with Daily Reboot Green & Rainbow Vegetable Juicing and a Plant-Based WholeFood eating lifestyle. (WFPB - means whole food plant-based ingredients, plant-based foods as close to their natural state as possible). . Please see the original feature at Reboot with Joe success profile at: http://bit.ly/1czS3JJ .

    And the Two Year Anniversary Success Profile at: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/reboot-success-story-dan-miller/

    There is also some behind the scenes footage, a video testimonial and a Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead commercial spot to view at ---> http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/rebooting/dan-miller/

    I completely understand and empathize where you all might be coming from - I have so been there and done that. The hardest part is just making the decision to commit to your self. It seems that once you make the decision to overcome confusing eating habits and make a change....the quick results and new found energy pumps you up to follow through, prevail and find success.

    After watching my beloved Joe Cross & personal saviour Phil Staples in www.fatsickandnearlydead.com and with further reading of Dr. Fuhrman's "Eat to Live", "The China Study and WHOLE" by T. Colin Campbell and, watching the recommended "Forks Over Knives' documentary, I discovered that eating plant-based wholefoods and drinking green vegetable juices will in fact aid you to overcome highly addictive hyper-palatable foods like animal-derived products, dairy, fats & sugar and to overcome poor eating habits like; the excessive consumption of animal protein products, oil & cholesterol, refined sugar, high sodium and other nutrient deficient junk food, all which led to my obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and my wife's battle with osteo-arthritis and auto-immune diseases.

    Be sure to review all the posts below starting on page one through to the present... there are videos, viewpoints, comments, pictures and links to aid you in your personal journey to lose weight and gain optimum health with Reboot Vegetable Juicing and a Plant-Based WholeFoodist attitude. I could make a number of suggestions while undertaking a reboot juice feast regimen or simply incorporating more fruits & veggies (whether juiced, blended or eaten whole) into your daily meal planning. First of all – Be Kind to Your Self! It took many years and lots of poor food choices to become overweight – It will take some time to lose it. Your body must be allowed to come into balance with phytonutrient dense plant-based foods. There will be plateaus during your weight loss journey – you’ll think nothing is happening, but it is. ************Avoid the scale to avoid disillusionment.......... Clean out your pantry to avoid temptation.****************

    The weight will come off with reboot vegetable juicing and a plant-based food choice – but must be allowed to integrate and work with your level of conscious nutrition.

    Free yourself from added eating stress and change the way you approach it. Forget dieting and just start a process of "Incorporating ~ Eliminating". Start incorporating a larger quantity of (cooked or raw, juiced or blended) plant-based whole foods like: green and rainbow color fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans-peas-legumes, nuts & seeds . Start eliminating and weeding out the SAD diet foods like: drive-through junk & hyperpalatable fast food, animal products (meats, seafood, shellfish, eggs), animal-derived products (dairy, butter, cheese, ice cream, whey, casein, lard), oil fat/sugar/sodium-laden processed, refined and packaged foods. .........>There is over 40 years of research supporting that a WholeFood–PlantBased (WFPB) eating lifestyle will rejuvenate & regenerate your whole body, will alleviate chronic annoying symptoms, and reverses degenerative diseases like: obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Reboot Juicing is a tool to discover and compliments a shift to including more plants into your daily eating habit.

    ------> Not only is plant-based whole foods the healthiest way of eating that has ever been studied, but it’s far more effective in promoting health and preventing disease than prescription drugs, surgery, vitamin and herbal supplementation, and genetic manipulation. A PlantBased Reboot Juicing lifestyle entails; No counting calories, No drowning in minutiae about what to eat or what not to eat --- just simplify and make wise health-promoting choices........ DRINK Vegetable Juices & EAT Plants!

    This group is open to all exploring extreme weight loss with reboot vegetable juices and incorporating more plant-based nutrition. I have found that combining Reboot Juicing with a Plant-based whole food eating lifestyle has worked for extreme sustained weight loss and achieving optimum health - the results have been phenomenal.

    Is your reboot over or just starting? Do you feel you failed or that you were successful? When it comes down to it, even a single juice is better than never juicing at all. We all have some form of victory under our belts! Even if this is day 1 for you. You are here. Celebrate! Typically the first 3 to 5 days are the worst. Generally the 8 to 10 day window is glorious as that is when the surge of energy hits. After day 10, the real battle begins. - The mental battle: How long can I really go without chewing? How long can I really do this for? The questions, the doubting (from yourself and others), the curiosity all starts to set in. - This is normal. Totally normal. And you are here. Here with me and everyone else. I did my juice nearly alone. You don't need to be alone. Gain support, motivation, encouragement and inspiration from this group! This group is focused on what happens afterwards or what happens if you just can't stomach a juice but still want nutrition and to be healthy? I look at things a bit differently than most. Juicing has given me my life back. My number one focus is getting in nutrition and improving overall health. Calories are important to fuel our bodies, yes. However, empty calories provide no nutrition. I want to fuel my body with highly nutritious calories. This is not a trend or a diet for me, this is my new lifestyle. Without it, I'd still be way fat.

  • BabyBoomer Juicers - Eat & Drink Plants!

    Members: 22

    Latest activity: 06/03/2015 05:11 PM

    Are you over 50? This is our time. There is hope for those who are over 50, overweight, or sick & tired, and suffering from degenerative disease and chronic ailments. Dispel diet and health care myths. Achieve optimum health with Reboot Veggie Juicing and a Plant-based whole food eating lifestyle - without the need for excessive medications, surgery or invasive medical treatments. No need to spend your senior years in a hospital or expensive care facility -- don't buy into sickcare - take your health into your own hands and find true health care with daily Reboot Juicing and Eating Plants.

    My wife Elisabeth (age 51) and I (age 53- soon to be 54) have always been health conscious individuals but, like many, failed to recognize diet and nutrition related to our own obesity and chronic health issues. Until recently - I have always struggled with my weight since grade school - but now with a strong advocacy for plant-based whole foods and a veggie juicing lifestyle we have collectively lost 185 pounds and regained our health by alleviating a long-list of chronic and debilitating ailments. We cleaned out our pantry and cleaned up our lives.

    I started Reboot Juicing as a last resort because I tried everything else. Even 20 years in the Health & Wellness field did not address overwhelming food addictions and obesity. After watching FSND - I got the 'kick in the pants' I had been missing and have sustained weight loss of 145 pounds since August 2011 and continue to juice daily and eat a plant-based lifestyle ever since.

    Please see Success Profile from Sept 2012: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/dan-m-changed-his-life-in-more-ways-than-one-he-now-makes-juice-instead-of-bacon-and-cut-his-grocery-bill-in-half/

    My wife inadvertently lost 40 pounds just preparing and eating my new plant-based recipes - within 3 weeks of adopting vegetable juicing and plant-based foods her debilitating osteo and heart complaints began to reverse and after one year abstaining from animal products, dairy, eggs, refined/processed foods - we have both regenerated and gained optimum health.

    Hi Everyone! I finished the New Year's Reboot and felt great, so I started up a 15-Day Reboot! It went so well, that lots of us in the group decided to extend it to 30 days! Now we're finished, and are transitioning from juicing to keeping a healthy diet. We've got a very positive and upbeat group full of supportive people all with the same goals to lose weight and restart a healthy lifestyle. Come join us! You'll be very glad you're here.

  • "Move the Dial" with Modified Juicing

    Members: 13

    Latest activity: 05/01/2014 03:09 PM

    This is for people who have finished a reboot or who want to change their eating habits with modified juicing. The Group Picture is of a glass mug of healthy hot garlic soup with sprigs of parsley. I've just finished a 10 day juice reboot and am now eating lots of salads and hot soup. My challenge is night-time grazing. I'm cultivating a better eating habit by: 1. Drinking at least one healthy veggie/fruit juice a day 2. Eating a salad a day 3. Eating more veggies than meat or grain 4. Eating no later than 8:30 p.m. 6 days a week (I work late hours) 4. intermittent fasting one day a week (only veggie juice) 5. Every 6 - 8 weeks I want to do a 3 day juice cleanse This list isn't meant to dictate the same for everyone. How are you "moving your dial" by cultivating your own better eating habits?

    From Septemer 14 until October 25, I'm doing the six-week challenge set out in Dr. Joel Fuhrman's book Eat to Live. I won't be weighing until I'm finished. Please join me in the next leg of my journey. The daily guidelines are: - 1 pound raw veg (minimum) - 1 pound cooked veg (minimum) - 4 fruit (minimum) - 1 cup cooked dried beans, lentils or legumes - 1 oz. unsalted raw seeds/nuts (maximum) - 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds To make this a holistic experience for myself, the six weeks will include increased exercise for my body, more reading for my mind and meditation for my spirit. If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse. PLEASE...NO FOOD TALK THAT IS NOT OUTLINED IN THE EAT TO LIVE PLAN!

    Latest activity: 05/23/2016 01:28 AM

    I thought since the Holidays are coming up as well as the end of the year and I would rather start the year off on a positive note then as a desperate resolution, I will do nothing but juices, smoothie and salad until the end of the year. I know just juices alone would give me faster weight loss but I am trying to focus on health and not just weight alone as well as something that is sustainable for the long haul. I would love company and support if anyone else is interested? Join me and we can encourage and support each other. :)

    Latest activity: 08/31/2018 06:05 PM

    This group is for anyone who is striving to eat and drink only plants. We all know that a plant-based whole-foods diet is the healthiest way to eat, a la Drs. Ornish, McDougall, Esselstyn, Furhman, Caldwell, Campbell, etc. It can prevent and even cure many diseases. I have tried a couple times to fully transition to a plant-based whole-foods diet and have not yet succeeded. I am giving it another go and would love to give and receive support from like-minded people. I have watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead," "Forks Over Knives," and other documentaries, and I'm really inspired! Will you join me?

  • Juice/Smoothies/Plant-based for December

    Members: 30

    Latest activity: 07/31/2016 11:39 AM

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go. For many of us it's not the toys, parades and decorations that get us in the end...it's the goodies everywhere we look. It's at the staff parties, friend's parties, family get-togethers, the magazine covers at every checkout, the cooking shows on the Food Network..the list goes on and on. This group is open to anyone and everyone who wants to get through the Christmas season (that seems to get longer every year). Any food other than plant-based is NOT to be discussed. Mentioning anything in your plant-based diet will be fine. It's hard enough for us as it is with all that unhealthy food out their calling our names without reading about someone eating it or even thinking about eating it. If you'd like to join me for the month of December, please do.
