Hello... congrats on your JF. I've never been much of a meat eater but OMG that caffeine, ya, it was BAD. Today I am at Day 5 and the FIRST day that I didn't actually crave coffee when I got up...Cha-Ching!!!!

In the film, Joe connected his juicer to a battery so that he could use it in the car. I think this is how I'm going to have to have it as well. What kind of battery was he using and how much can I expect to spend on this?
Thanks! Really looking forward to seeing what this does for me and my wife.

Hi everyone, I'm Michael. I'm a 37 year old white man in Arizona and just clocked in at 272 pounds at my pre-reboot doctor's visit. My wife Nina is 36 and hasn't allowed me to know what her scale reads, which is really really stupid
. But I'll deal. SO! Here we go. We saw the film and bought the 800JEXL for $300 at BB&B then went to a farmer's market to stock up. What they didn't have we got at our local grocery.
We agreed to try at least 15 days. Then we'll decide if we want to do the next 15 for a total of thirty. And then if we're killing it we'll go another 30 for the full 60. I've put together a diary that I'll be posting here for other newbies to read and hopefully relate to. Wish me luck!

It's been a rough month, that's for sure. But now that I'm on 32, entering the downslope of this change, I thought I'd share a few observations:
1. The juicing may be just the beginning, but it's a clean slate you give yourself. I'm down 35 pounds and now I can work out and start taking my physical health into my own hands. The whole "where do I start" that killed most of my efforts in the bud isn't a factor with juicing.
2. Hunger is just a monster under the bed. I'm not going to lie. Those first couple weeks the hunger and desire for bad foods was as bad as I could have possibly imagined. But once I made it over that hump the general physical craving for food turned out to have blunt fangs. I'm hungry most of the time, but it's not the horror I'd feared at the start. I can feel my body is asking me for nutrients, not threatening to kill me or turn me into some distended waste of myself.
3. You have commit fully or not at all. Over the last 32 days people have seen the transformation and decided to "try it out". You don't try this out. You do or do not. There is no try.
4. The first half was about ridding body and mind of the bad. The second half will be about filling them with the good. I have rid myself of many of the cravings that ruled me. But some are going strong; beer, red meat, fried foods, etc. I have to learn to accept the temptations I will be presented with after juicing and have the personal discipline to choose when I indulge and when I service my body's real needs.
5. There is no doing this without the exercise. If you aren't building lean muscle to help burn the fat, then you are really squandering this opportunity. My body is now craving exertion, like my flesh is now on board with what my mind has decided.
Thanks for reading everyone. Good luck with your juicing! See you at 60!
