Hey I just earned the badge I'm on a Reboot badge - Juice On!
Cha-Ching, first day with NO cravings for my coffee, I was new and energized, ready to start my day. I drank my 4 Mean Greens (my choice of juice for now), lots of water and did't seem AS hungry as my previous days. I'm still on my regular insulin doses, but it's ok, its going to take some time. Perhaps I am getting over the hardest part, we'll see what tomorrow brings. Stay focused!!!
Can I pass... LOL.... Ok, fine, if I have to report something, let's just say, I wanted too get under my covers and die. I felt so CRAPPY, it was BAD. I was hungry, I could have killed for coffee, I was sleepless, and just down right MISERABLE!!! But.... about 9pm, something magical happened and I suddenly CRAVED a mean green, can you believe it, I surely couldn't. I got up and made one, gulped it down. It was a very proud moment for me...
Current Weight: 168 (5 pounds down 40 to go)
The caffeine struggle has gotten easier, I craved it but the headaches were much lighter than yesterday. Today food completely consumed my mind, It's not that I was hungry for it, it was that my mind was trying to convince me how much I missed my favorite dishes and how I should just quit. I refused to let the Fat Girl In Me win the argument and I stayed STRONG. I had a close call with the cheese curds though, but I managed to keep the steering wheel straight and not making a turn that would take me OFF my reboot.
My blood sugars were pretty out of whack today, normally they are stable, I guess it's all the changes that are transpiring internally. I have to admit, I was very angry about having to increase my insulin, but after reading the encouragement from my friends in my Reboot Group, I stopped feeling sorry for myself and realized the changes NEEDED to occur so that my body can begin working NATURALLY rather than on all the crap we use to give it "so called energy". So guess what, I welcome those changes, BRING IT ON!!! Yes, I'm still hungry, I've only been juicing 3 a day and I'm being told I should be having between 4-6. I guess I need to go shopping for more veggies. I've just discovered that I can do OTHER juices too, not JUST the Mean Green, so I look forward to trying out new juices :)
I woke up at 3am with an excruciating headache and could NOT fall back to sleep until I finally got up and too some Ibuprofen. I stayed hungry and my stomach kept gurgling for most of the day. I drank lemon water to make sure I stay well hydrated and it gave me a little fullness.
I had to choke down my 3rd Mean Green at dinner. Their not bad, but for some reason, it was not working for me,but I did it. I need to know, is the Mean Green the only juice we should be doing for our fast? If we do other juices, will we have the same results? If I'm going to do this, I want to do it right, drinking the right juices.
I was disappointed with my blood sugars today, It seemed so positive yesterday, I was sure I could get off of it within a few days but after today, It was a reminder that it will be a process and I have to be patient.
No! There are as many juice combos as there are fruits and veggies! Mean Green is a balanced veggie juice, but there are many other combos. Starting with a citrus juice in the morning like tangerine/lemon/apple or grapefruit/orange/lemon then mean green then maybe an orange or red then finish the day on a mean green again. It is supposed to be 5 16 oz glasses a day plus lots of water is my understanding. I am on day three and my stomach is really growling, but I am determined!! Good luck! This website has a juice recipe tab you can look through.
Day 1 of 60
Starting Weight: 173
Measurements: Waist: 40, Hips: 40, Chest: 41, Arm: 14, Thigh: 23, Calf: 14.5, Neck: 15
Caffeine Addiction: I survived!!! I drank 3 mean green juices today along with lots of water. I made it through day one without any coffee, diet coke or energy drinks (MIRACLE). I did pretty good for the most part except about 2pm, I probably could have killed for a Diet Coke, but I prayed and thought about what I would write in MY success story with before and after pics, so I managed to get through those moments.
Medication: I didn't need to take any insulin for my juices. I had checked my sugar before consuming my first juice and it was within normal range and I knew there wasn't anything really in the juice to require it, so I skipped it. I checked two hours later and it barely went up so I knew I was clear with mean green juice and not having to take any insulin. I cut my long acting down to half tonight, I will see how it goes through the night and what my fasting is in the morning.
Overall: Well I really can't complain, I had a good day overall. I enjoyed the juices, although they were the same at each meal, I made it through. I was hungry most of the day but I just drank a glass of cold water when my stomach started to growl. I tried to focus on other things and not the hunger, it seemed to help. There were a few times I could feel the tension climbing up my shoulders, into my neck, giving me a pounding headache, but I would just do a few neck rolls and take a couple of Ibuprofen, a hot bath would have helped, but I only have a shower. One thing I HAVE TO ADMIT is, it sure feels good to be "Hungry" for a change and not over stuffed, leaving me with a pounding headache and blurry vision because my sugar is too high.

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.
