    Well I am on day 7 today and it is going great. I was despairing that I was ever going to get on track again but a nice little stomach bug helped me along...haha who would think, huh! After a couple days of not being able to eat anything, I decided I might as well take advantage and start juicing....I have been having one smoothie and 3 juices and am feeling much clearer and a bit more energetic already! My hubby has been having some juice too along with the good veggie food I make for him and he is buzzing around like a maniac! He totally loves this way of eating, it's so nice not to have to cook tempting things!

    What Happens To Fat When You Burn It Off?


    You learn early in chemistry class that matter cannot be created or destroyed; it can only change form. So, how do those rules apply to the human body? Specifically, where does fat go when it "disappears"? Does it turn into something else? Is this all as mysterious as it seems?

    The answer is: kind of. Shape reports that, according to a recent study from the British Medical Journal that surveyed doctors and biochemistry students, even those science folk weren't quite sure what happens to fat after you burn it off. Researchers also learned that an alarming number of personal trainers and nutritionists believe fat converts to energy or heat — which isn't actually true.

    Researcher Ruben Meerman traced atom pathways and determined that 80% of the atoms from fat molecules leave the body through your lungs. This means you're actually releasing most fat through carbon dioxide via your breath. The remaining 20% is released through water in the form of sweat, urine, tears, and other bodily fluids. Turns out there's actual meaning behind the phrase "sweat it out."

    Feeling reflective today...I am on Day 5 and am enjoying much greater clarity of mind than when I was in my junk fueled haze. Thinking about all the times I have lost huge amounts of weight and then gained it back, and why I allowed that to happen. It occurs to me that although my body changed dramatically, the way I thought never really did..In my mind I was still a fat girl, still thought and felt the same about myself. Yes being thinner made doing things easier, I exercised, ate healthy food, felt better and took some pride in my accomplishment, but there were other more disquieting feelings that I tried to ignore and ultimately I believe were the reason I always stalled and would eventually return to old habits. If I ever hope to conquer the weight problem, I know I am going to have to address my deepest inmost fears and feelings and either vanquish or integrate them into the healthy, happy me I desire to be. Changing the inner me will be a far greater challenge than changing my outward appearance because my body is just the visible manifestation of my inner state of turmoil. When our mind and body is not in harmony, there is a constant physical and mental battle going on between them to attain it. I think there is far too much focus on weight loss and not enough on the mental changes that must accompany it . Almost anyone can lose weight by doing the right things but very few are successful in sustaining it. THAT should be a huge clue that something more is needed than the perfect weight loss plan! Just losing the weight is NOT the magic cure all to happiness, We need to lose the emotional baggage too! If we are not emotionally equipped to cope with the new expectations and demands that go along with the weight loss, and we regress repeatedly, it can actually be more damaging than beneficial. Taking the time to figure out what really got us into this condition in the first place and how we can change those circumstances or emotions is a vital key to maintaining our weight loss successfully. And that folks is my two cents worth for today. LOL

    Gail, I can just hear you gushing :) It's so nice that you got to meet the little guy. How's your stress and pain level? I went to send you a message after you wrote about possibly moving closer to Edmonton - and your post was gone :( The idea of moving after 40 years is a bit scary. My parents retired to Penticton after living in NW Ontario their entire lives. It was quite the move, but they got to see their youngest grandchildren grow up. Life has been hectic around here. We've had a house inspection from BC Housing that threw me for a loop, trips to the hospital in Kelowna for Faith's ankle, a bad back for Rod which has made him into a bit of an ogre with me trying to keep the boat steady...but life goes on. I hope you're doing okay.

    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.

    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. :)

  • January 30-Day Juicing Challenge beginning January 1, 2016

    Members: 67

    Latest activity: 01/08/2018 06:40 PM

    My body likes it when I'm juicing, so January 1 will be Day-1 of 30 or so. If you would like to join me (a seasoned juicer) for the first month of the year, please become a member of the group and commit to the month. I'd originally planned on starting on the second, but why wait. The first of the month sounds good to me. My only request is that food is not talked about. Retraining the brain is key and talking about the food we used to eat, want to eat or did eat isn't beneficial to anyone. You can mention the ingredients that go into your juice and what kind of protein powder you may be using, but other than that, all talk of food is out. I'd love to have you join me in this challenge.
