Welcome MSCHARMS! I understand your frustration. I'm not a fan of juicing or any other fad diet for long-term weight loss.
The only long-term success I've seen is with healthy food and actvity. I started by not worrying about food except to log everything and I mean everything, the good, bad and the ugly. While I did that, I started getting more active, walks around the mall, at lunch at work, even laps around my house.
There are great videos on spark, some as short as seven minutes.
After a couple weeks of getting active, I took a hard look at my nutrition tracker. I saw my habits and where I could make some changes, reducing portions.
There is a lot of support and information here. Take it one day at a time. Make small changes every day that you can live with permanently!
I know Sparks doesn't approve of juice fasts. But, if you want help with juciing, then go to Joe Cross' sight. His film "FAT, SICK AND NEARLY DEAD" is on Netflix on how he lost over a 100# on a juice fast. He's an interesting guy.
