  • About: Hi all, I am striving to eat a whole food plant-based diet. I've arrived at a point in my life where I will no longer be able to fight off disease eating the Standard American Diet. I am a susceptible person who struggles with boundaries. I keep trying and failing and ultimately return to juicing to kick start the life I want to live. Each attempt I learn more from my peers and my research. I am trying to break a generational cycle of bad habits that lead to obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol.
  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: This reboot community is so supportive! I love the dedication and positive thoughts from its members. The recipes are very helpful.
  • Favorite Juice?
  • Food temptation? Dairy

    Hi Gr8greens, What are your exact goals? It helps to set numbers and exact intentions. I failed the first 6 times I didn't get past day 2. I counted those as practice runs. I was successful on my 7th attempt and just finished 92 days of juice only as you saw from the group. Knowing exactly where I was and where I wanted to be helped me me perfect my plan, then tailor it to my needs. A longer fast would help with discipline as well as really letting go of the bad habits, and allow you to make better choices afterwards.

    Just read your profile and hope this helps.

    Thank you World Wide for your encouraging words. It shows you really care about others and want to help. I really appreciate that. I wish I understood how juicing longer would help me with my discipline issues in the long run. Guess it's one of those things I won't know until I do it. Congratulations on all your success and enjoy showing off the "new you" this holiday season!

    I juiced for a little over 30 days, and lost about 20 lbs., then sadly slipped back into my old habits for about a week. Well here I go again, I still need to lose another 20lbs and am going to stick to this with the help of others in this community. My family is supportive, but they continue to eat the things I desire. I love them but it can be a strugglre, so I am going to lean on all of you in this community. Thanks ahead of time.

    I juiced for 14 days and am ready to switch to juicing all day and eating dinner with my family in the evenings. If I don't keep losing weight it's back to the fasting!

    Wow! Day 8! I'm jealous!!! I feel like the time is going by so slow. And with all this energy I have, it goes slower. Ugh! Thanks for your post. I had just commented on how hungry I was and now that I've entertained myself with these posts, it has gone away. Juice on!

    Maybe you have been searching for healthier vegetable and fruit-based alternatives to feed your family during your own juice feast. If so, good for you!! With obesity rates SOARING around the world (children included), there is no better time to make health a priority for every single body in your home (including your pet!!). And for those who are letting food serve as a source of "medicine" for the ills that plague the body, here's to living a STRONG life! Welcome aboard!! There are no "wagons" from which to fall off in here...just an open roundtable for exchanging nutritious plant-based food and drink ideas. So feel free to post your thoughts, recipes and pictures. Everyone is more than welcome to contribute to the "clean" eating that I hope we can accomplish and share. Each one, reach out and teach one!! Vegetables (both land and sea) are the focus, but ideas and recipes for fruit-based dishes are also welcome. So...grab your aprons and let the banging of pots and pans begin!! Cheers to a wealth of good health!! (As this is a site for encouraging maximum health and healing, please try to share ideas for dishes that DO NOT contain large amounts of the following ingredients: animal products, seafood, milk/dairy, cheese, eggs, processed food, creams, butter, excess table salt or sugar, white flour, white rice or cooking oil. Thank you so very much for your understanding and kind cooperation!!).

    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?

LET'S BE A TEAM! Let's start living a healthier lifestyle. You even being on this site is already a start. I need some motivation and I can motivate you as well. Let's help eachother out. Let's stop trying and start doing. It may be hard but it isn't impossible. WE can work together and push eachother. On our days when we feel like giving up, let's speak up and seek some words of encouragement. I'm starting today but even if you see this post late, STILL join. I will push you and help you reach your goals. If you're not joining, I would appreciate any advice or any words to motivate or inspire me. I'm on day one and I'm fighting! I'll be posting my recipes and experience day by day until WE reach 30 days. If you stop after 30 days, don't go back to old habits! EAT HEALTHIER and excersice. Do it for your own good. Love yourself enough to make this change. Question for you... Do you want to be happier? Do you want to feel more energy? Live longer? Be able to do things you were never able to? THEN START TODAY AND SEE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE. I know you want to look into the mirror and see a difference for once. Trust yourself and give this your all. Change begins with YOU. Remember that hard work pays off and great things require hard work. Btw, a BIG thanks to Joe! You helped me start TODAY and stop making excuses.
