are you with us this Reboot? I've not heard much from you - are you ok?
wow! am i impressed with all the things you have had going on in your life. how proud you must be with what you've accomplished. good luck this week with your juicing! to your good health!
Hey roses! Nice to see you back again. How are things with you?
Hey roses! Just stopped by to see how you are doing? Hope you're parents are doing better.
Starting week of March 22nd: (Don't want to lose where I am - so copying this from a group post I made)
Thank you all for sharing your experiences. I was finally able to catch up a little and am very motivated for next week because of all your comments.
I have a few juices and a lot of produce to make more juices in the morning. I am leary of 'new' recipes right now as I seem to be wanting the greens and citrus. I just started having cold symptoms so maybe that is why I want so much citrus. Drank alot of ginger water today and that helped too.
I was concerned about writing here that I have been having some salads in the evenings (don't want to discourage anyone) but that is what I need right now to get through things going on in life. This reboot is helping me to see what I need, where my food pitfalls are, and how to recover from them. It is a process and I am learning every step of the way. I have allergies and am learning to be very careful not to change too much at once and to watch for effects of foods. I am trying to have the same 3 juice recipes for 2 days and then switch to watch for reactions. This really helped!
Also, I am not beating myself up about my choices. I am learning that the food choices I make are just that - choices. Stress truly weighs more and like Jon Gabriel says - our bodies will lose the weight when we are ready. The reboot helps to get me ready and motivated!
In FSND2 one of the specialists said that we are 80% more likely to choose the first food we see to eat. (I think I got that right) Anyway, this little tidbit stuck with me and I have rearranged my pantry and my refrigerator so I see juices and juicing accessories first! What a difference to not sabotage myself.
I look forward to moving forward in this journey next week.
Thank you all for sharing and motivating me!
Hi roses ~ when it comes to juicing, stick with your current juice if you like it and it's 80% vegetables. I've been drinking the same beet-based juice for over a year and a half now. Since I'm not sick of it yet, I'll stick with it. Why change something that's already good?
I'm off to drink my Bengal Spice tea. Have a great day!
Strategy to keep on track:
The strategy to keep on track that works for me is being prepared! I really need to plan my day and week ahead of time and get to the store before I run out of juice / vegetables. I am going to plan my week this weekend and think of all I have going on and where I will be so that I always have juice or water with me.
Also, I need to think through and list some ideas for things to do, or what I can have juice or food wise (if I really am hungry) when stressful situations come up unexpectedly. With diabetes, not controlled, I notice a stressful conversation can raise my blood sugar 10 to 50 points and send me straight to the refrigerator or to bed. When my blood sugar is too high I cannot exercise (actually read that exercise can be bad at a point when your blood sugar is too elevated - once mine is over 385-400 I am just ready to sleep). So I think my plan needs to be a couple glasses of water and then find an activity:
* maybe come and read/respond to posts;
* or even watch a good health video - Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 1 or 2, Dr. Fuhrman, Gerson Therapy, David Wolfe's "Best Day Ever", etc...
* or embroidery
* or read a good book
* or make a juice
* or take a shower ...
Can't wait to hear more suggestions.
Thanks for your post to my wall! Hope your reboot goes well! Juice on!
About MEAT from Abby Hueber, RD:
"In this transition phase it can be helpful to think about what about the meat are you attached to? It is the fullness it provides, the warmth, the texture? What is you had 1/2 baked sweet potato or roasted some butternut squash and added those to your salad? These are heartier vegetables that provide a very satisfying texture and belly feel. It might help you move into a plant based dinner without feeling like something is missing.
There are so many roasted veggies that can work as an animal protein substitute:
- Sweet potatoes
- Red potatoes
- wanted to post this here to remind myself of this "experiment".
I have juiced for years and also made tomato juice from garden tomatos long before "juicing" so I have used quite a few juicers.
Last summer to start a 30 day juice fast I purchased a
because I had always used a masticating juicer due to the articles on the quality and quantity of the juice.
My wonderful daughter helps me juice and really was excited about the Breville juicer so I purchased a
Breville BJE820XL Bundle Dual Disc Juice Processor with DVD and tried it out last weekend side-by-side with the Omega.
I think the results we got were what is usually stated on juicer websites when comparing the masticating and centrifugal juicers.
First - I really wanted to like the Breville since it is supposed to be faster. There is just no getting around the slow pace of the masticating juicers.
I purchased the model above because of the 1200 watt motor.
Now the comparison:
We made the "Green Citrus" juice with oranges, spinach, and apples. Same amounts for both juicers.
WOW - The Breville blew me out of the water. The first oranges and apples sprayed me through the shoot I just wasn't fast enough with the plunger! It truly was fast and I finished juicing and cleanup 15 minutes before my daughter did. But...
2) Amount of juice/wetness of pulp
Now the turnaround :(
The Breville only made 2 - 16 oz jars of juice. I did put the pulp through 3 times as it was wetter then I was used to with the masticating juicers.
The Omega made 3+ - 16 oz jars of juice. - with the same amount of produce!
3) Quality of juice
Like I said I really wanted to like the Breville. It was faster. The price of less juice per amount of produce was a drawback but the quality was truly the deal breaker for us. Remember - we are used to juice from a masticating juicer and the full taste of the juice. If we hadn't been juicing before we wouldn't know the difference.
The Breville juice settled immediately into layers. This is after rotating the produce through the shoot. When I shook the juice it would once again settle into layers about 15 minutes later. Finally, after 48 hours, I actually saw mold starting - on two layers - ugh! (I also forgot to mention the foam.)
The Omega juice doesn't settle into fully noticeable layers. I can see about 1/4" of very fine pulp on the top of the juice after about 6 hours. (We do strain the juice from the omega as some of the mushy pulp seems to get through the strainer on the juicer into the juice. This accounts also for some of the extra time with this juicer.) 2 days after juicing the juice is still fresh and tastes like the day it was made.
If you need a fast juicer, easy to clean, don't mind watery juice and less juice, and finally if you are going to drink the juice the same day the Breville is a good idea. It is fast and easy to clean. All the parts are metal and a good quick wash and rinse is all that is needed.
If you want to juice for a few days (this is what I need to do - a couple afternoons/evenings a week to make a weeks' worth of juice) the Omega is better. Also, if you are concerned about quantity of juice Omega wins here too. The problems we have found are that you do have to cut the produce smaller, clean the plastic parts with a brush and really give it a good scrubbing (oranges seem to leave a residue and we juice a lot of oranges. The "Green Citrus" juice has been my favorite for months! Also, the Omega is slower but I was glad to see that it is only 15 minutes slower for 3 jars of juice (although in that time Breville only made 2 jars)
I hope this helps. It is just my experience and the choice really depends on what features are important to you.

This group is inspired by all the amazing people I have met in this community who, like me, have or had 100 lbs or more to lose when starting this journey with our wonderful Joe Cross:) There are special challenges in this world for those of us who are "morbidly obese" and there are some incredibly inspirational people around here conquering those challenges every day. Come be inspired and inspiring!

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.

This group is for anyone who wants to do a serious juice fast for the entire month of September. My only request is that there be absolutely NO FOOD TALK. (Juice ingredients are perfectly fine.). If someone is struggling, it can run them right off the rails - and we don't want that. Whether you're young or old, timid or bold, have much to lose or a little....or just want to clean up your body, mind and spirit...ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE.

60 Day Guided Reboot for Diabetes October 8th - December 6th, 2014
Latest activity: 01/15/2016 06:27 PM
A group for those interested in not only doing a reboot but using it as a tool to effect serious change in your life. Use this opportunity to kick cravings out, face mental demons, load up on tons of fruits and vegetables and start living the life you always knew you could! I just completed my first 60 day juice only reboot on Thanksgiving (11-28-14) and lost 40lbs!!!! I felt great and still do but am not mentally where I want to be with food yet and physically still need to lose about 40lbs. So, I enjoyed my month after Thanksgiving to Christmas eating a mostly vegan diet and am ready to kick off another 60 day juice reboot. All are welcome, newbies and veterans alike, and although I am doing juice only and hope others will join me, all rebooters are welcome whether you juice only or don't or if it is for 60 days or 3. Let's join together and encourage one another to freedom!!!!
