I primarily juice carrots, apples, and celery. Are there any particular smoothies you would recommend utilizing these ingredients? Especially the carrots -- tons of carrot extract.

I have juiced and felt great in the process. Since I was just beginning my juicing, I purchased a cheapy juicer at JC Penny (less than $50). I think Walmart has some in that price range also. I started out following Joe's 3 days fast, and decided to go ahead and do the juicing fast for two more days. It was not difficult, but -- it was EXPENSIVE. It was also a LOT of work. I do highly recommend juicing, but you need to be aware of the down-sides as well.

I have watched this movie several times and have wanted to try a week or two of juicing if not long. My boyfriend is doing a biggest loser challenge with his co workers and I am going to try it with him. He has decided juicing is the way to go to lose. We both could use extra boost to start our weight loss and start on a fresh path of eating healthy. Only thing is I don't like green vegetables so I will be using more fruit. Not sure if doing more fruit is as healthy since its full of natural sugars, but we will see. I am glad you are all here to share with.

I started the 10 day reboot lite on Monday... So far it's gone pretty well. Eating all fruits and vegetables and having juice twice a day. I'm not nearly as hungry as I thought I would be though. I'm usually a protein kinda gal.

I don't know about detox, I do know that I've had a ton of headaches but I assume it's from giving up caffeine and sugar and all processed carbs all at one go.

I have done juice fasts in the past. With a myriad of other diets, like the Mayo Diet. That is before I knew the Mayo Clinic had nothing to do with that diet.

I was so grouchy and tired. That my family begged me to eat. And I lost a pound. All that suffering to only lose one pound.

So I don't do them anymore. I found that I like to chew my food. I love fruit and vegetables. I get more satisfaction out of chewing them up.

emoticon

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Juicing absolutely does assist the body in detoxing. I am on a 100 juice fast(today is day 43) so far I expelled a worm and colon and chest mucus. Some people think they don't have the will power to juice fast so they will come up with all sorts of reasons why it isn't a good thing. For me juicing is helping so much I can recommend it 100%. Everyone is different a 3 day a 10 day or more may be for you. Even adding green smoothies to an already wholefood diet is a great thing. I have an Omega NC800 juicer, I love it. When I am finished with my fast I will use it for coconut cream, nut butters, etc. I use it now to juice for my nephews and my mom to give them real non processed juice. A nice juicer is a great addition to a healthy lifestyle whether juice fasting or not. FYI A juice fast is NOT likewater fasting or master cleanser. Most people drink around 1300-1500 calories juice fasting so if you think of it as a short term low calorie plan it might change some of your doubts.
Also my juicing is like $40 a week, cheaper than my normal grocery bill. Sometimes lower when I juice for friends they buy me produce too and they use my work horse juicer asa trade off, get creative!

My daughters friend has been juicing for months and he has lost 60 lbs, by at first eating only one meal a day and juicing the rest of the day. Now he eats two healthy meals a day and juice for the other meal and snack. He also exercises by walking and it doesn't seem to be hurting him, helping considering he's a really big guy 6 fit 2 inches tall and was almost 300 lbs now he's close to 200 lbs. It works depends on what works for you.

I couldn't begin to do this because I would feel starved on any type of juice or smoothie. But if it's working for you keep up the good work. And don't forget to consult your doctor or nutritionist regarding if this is a healthy thing for you health wise. emoticon

I saw the documentary and it sounded great but I don't have the discipline to shop for fresh fruit and vegetables every day to do this - even if for only two weeks. Plus, the Breville Juicer is $150.00. I can see that turning into an expensive door weight...

I would love to do a short juicing detox. Do I need to do anything to prepare my body for it?

Yes, I feel a lot better when I substitute the largest meal of the day (dinner) with a juice drink. Usually kale, cucumber, carrot, grapefruit and apples. Sometimes ginger. Yumm. I do need to branch out and learn some different combos---and also figure out the calorie counts, now that I'm tracking food intake again. (Hmmm...just how many calories is in that drink? I can imagine with too much fruit, it could go high.)

I am really excited to try something to RECHARGE my body. Been at a standstill, gained 12+ pounds and workout regularly (I have well over 100 to lose). Feel like I need something basic and to make food a FUEL rather than what I do now. Sunday Morning (tomorrow) is my start day. I leave for work in a few hours so trying to put together a small shopping list to get myself by in the am and also get the kitchen ready to use! I will be taking BEFORE pictures and meausements! As of right now intending on doing a 10 day fast, may convert to 30 (have a vacation at day 25 so may end up being a 25 day fast - we'll see!!!!)

Let's get this in gear!

We are borrowing a juicer, but we have a blender like a magic bullet that we got for $25 at SAMs club. It works great for our standards. Doesn't totally chop all of the ice but that is ok with me.
I bought my stuff today at one of the Hispanic grocery stores. We have a few near us and they always have the best produce prices. I couldn't find kale which I thought was weird. Mi just going to buy what's on sale each week cause they do have good sales. I got 8 kiwis for $1, 2 bunches of spinach for $1, and a lot of other stuff. I'm going to go to SAMs next week and see what is on sale there. For once it might be worth it to buy so much of something since that is all ill be eating so I should use it before it goes bad.

Find a SAMs or costco or see if you can buy in bulk. Some stores let you for much cheaper.

Just made me first drink! I have had lots of stomach pain lately and I've had mysterious ovary pain for over a year. I'm hoping juicing can help these things. My ovaries were better when I was eating better last fall but I haven't been doing so well lately.

Crossing my fingers for good weight loss results. My bf is in a wedding in 5 weeks and I'm hoping to lose 10 pounds by then. Hoping I can stick to it.

How much does it recommend to drink a day? Or does it depend a lot on what is in each drink? Obviously a drink with lots of veggies gives you more nutrients than like one veggie and a super juicy fruit like an orange.

My other concern is calcium. I take synthroid (Hasimotos disease) and really have to think about calcium. I stopped drinking regular milk a while ago so maybe I can drink almond milk sometimes along with my juicing.

I liked the movie and got interested in it but there were two things that turned me off. First, it is really expensive to buy the large quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables that you need in order to follow one of his plans. They don't mention the cost in the movie but that truck driver is carrying boxes of fresh produce to turn into juice.

The second thing that bothered me was how much of that fresh and expensive produce gets thrown away after the juicer juices it. I just couldn't deal with throwing so much of it all away after it cost so much. Maybe the vitamix is the answer but it costs a fortune too.

Really tasty, nutrition recipes for free here with nutritional counts here:
http://juicerecipes.com/

Also like many of the recipes on the joint the reboot sight though you have to remove 4 cal / gm of fiber when tracking your food (I do it in the notes section of the tracker)

Best book I've found for tasty recipes is The Complete Idiot's Guide to Juicing by Ellen Brown. I bought several other books but like hers the best (she could use help editing for typos but hey...it's still a good book)

I'm going to keep trying maybe my mix is wrong
usually I juice 2 apples,carrots 3-5 depending on size, 2-3 oranges ( I leave the skins on tastes better) lemon, pear, cucumber, and couple sprigs parsley,and a long leaf lettuce (growing in garden) plus 1-2 kale leaves usually makes about 2 ltrs and I drink it for breakfast lunch and until it's finished do have dinner of a night

I watched that film with my dad. I have a Breville juicer and he felt compelled to try juicing. When I was recovering from surgery it was a nice option for me, and I still use it to juice my own oranges and to add other nutrients like carrots and spinach.

For my dad, it was life-changing. He is a picky eater, and juicing helped him try new vegetables that he normally wouldn't eat. He has been overweight for a while. He also smokes and wasn't very physically active. As a result, he looks much older than his 53 years.

Juicing in the mornings, along with using an elliptical (low impact for his knees), he has lost over 30 pounds. He acts different, and he looks great! He says he'd still like to lose another 20 or so, but he's so excited by his progress that I don't doubt he can accomplish it. I just wish he'd give up smoking, too!

Yes, juicing eliminates the fiber (I add the pulp to my compost). And I do not believe there is any such thing as a "detox," unless it means eliminating processed food from your eating habits. The best thing to do is eat whole foods and items that have been minimally processed. Juicing can be a great way to introduce new produce to your lifestyle so you can acclimate to the flavor.

All I want to add is that when my husband was into juicing, with a juicer that included the pulp, skin, etc., I actually gained 8 lb. in just a couple of weeks; some of the juices were so good, and we were basically using them as snacks, at times. Probably mostly my own fault; overeating is overeating, no matter what the food.

I see nothing wrong with juice as an occasional meal or treat, or even for a day or two, but would take many of these claims with a big grain of salt.

I think you can incorporate juices into your day. Have you considered lean proteins, veggies and juice at every meal? I found that cutting out or reducing the grains in my diet really helps with blood sugar spikes throughout the day.

I bought my juicer at a Salvation Army store for $8. It's a Juiceman Jr. I could tell from the look of it that it had never been used. It works just fine for now, but has some trouble with 'woody' stuff - like ginger and kale stalks.

I did the 21 day Cleanse (Alejandro Junger), lost 15 lbs., and I'm still juicing/having smoothies while gradually adding back 'regular' food and assessing the effects. (Also got my blender at Salvation army - it was only $7!).

I'm thinking ahead to when the juicer dies, though. I can keep checking at the Salvation Army, but how likely is it that they will happen to have another juicer when I need it? I don't really want to spend $300 on a juicer, either...but want to make sure that I get one that is not problem prone.

I found this summary on Joe Cross's website; hopefully that will help: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/juicing/juicer-buying-guide/6/

I have been battling my weight for years.....I recently Did the 17 day diet for several cycles and lost about 20 pounds but just have two different auto immune diseases and am soooo tired all the time. I saw fat sick and nearly dead and wondered if I could be helped. I decided to try the juice fast. The first couple days were pretty miserable. I love fruits but have never been a vegetable lover especially concentrated in juice form. I wasn't sure I could do it. I am on day 5 and have to say it is getting easier. The gazpacho nearly made me throw up at first and today it was not delicious or anything but it was easier to get down. The worse one is the evening with beets in it.... taste like I'm eating mold to me. I have more energy than I was having still having issues with my joints and back but am hopeful. Today I have sores all over the inside of my mouth. Wondering if this is part of the detox portion or what that is all about. I have lost 6 lbs in 5 days which is great and I need to lose about 40 more but my big issue is really restoring my health. Anyone have issues with sores and painful feet from this?

I found the movie quite inspiring and especially beneficial to those who are ill with something such as an autoimmune disease. I did some juicing for a while and have decided it's a good way to jump start or to add once in a while to my diet. It is too restrictive for me to do on a long term basis. My husband and I really enjoy nice meals out.
That being said, the benefits are there.

I saw the movie today, (through many tears of joy and hope and happiness) Wow!

I read a lot of the posts here and found them most helpful. To juice or blend? I would say both, there is more similarity than difference. 1/2 a loaf is better than none. If you just have a blender than use that, you still are way ahead of the typical S.A.D. ( sick American diet)

The greens issue may be skirted by buying powdered greens, use a few tsps. or tbsps. and that way it may not taste as bad. You still get a lot of good nutrients in. I am a teacher and have the summer off, my first project is to build a solar dryer. Check out YouTube for many ideas. I am going to grow my own greens, then dry the leaves and powder them. If you have time this may work, if you don't have time and have money then buy a reliable pre made powdered off the internet or health food store, ( of course make sure it is a reputable source)

There is a benefit to a strict regimen and some may need that, but I don't know about a strict 10, 30, or 60 day plan. I am making this part of a regular lifestyle, and can increase the juice when needed.

Thank you all, and I hope something here is beneficial.

I have a Jack Lalanne power juicer & I like it so far. I am doing Jason Vale's (The Juice Master) 3 day cleanse this weekend. Hoping it will "jump-start" my weight-loss, help rid me of my sugar / junk cravings, and just make me feel better!! I'll let you know how it goes emoticon

yes you will regain the weight if you eat like you did before the fast. Its a way to break old habits and form new ones.

I am ended day 6 on a juice fast, I am doing all right all things considered, it's still hard socializing around food but if you prepare juice before you go out, and have more before you get super hungry its not bad. I am losing about a pound a day. Just restarted spark people.

I tried fsnd diet for two days, then I had really bad diarrhea. That was enough for me! I would try the drink again in the future though, maybe in the morning to feel more energized.

Hi THECOOLESTSARAH - you can also try this drink. It really helps with acne because it rebalances your gut.

2 tbsp Raw apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tsp Raw honey

Mix these ingredients into 12oz of hot, filtered water. Drink once a day.

My husband and I are doing a 15 day cleanse. He had a health scare and watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead a second time. Which led to him making the decision to make a change in his diet and he bought a juicer.

We're on day 4. I'm slightly less stabby today. But still very hungry. Sigh....I hope it gets better.

Hi all,

I recently watched the documentary and have been seriously considering doing the juice cleanse to jumpstart losing those pesky last 10 lbs. However, I keep wondering if the weight will creep back once I reintroduce solid foods into my diet. Does anyone have any experience with gaining the weight back or were you able to keep it off easily?

Thanks!

I did a lot of research and there simply are no great juicers under a $100. If you want a really great juicer that will give you great yields and the most nutrients from your produce. You're gonna have to spend between $300 to $400. The Omega 8006 or the Omega Vert is what you want to look at. They are both highly recommended and come with a 10 year warranty.

I bought the Omega 8006 today! I can't wait to start my juice fast next week. I am going to use the rest of this week to figure out what I'm doing, and ease myself into juicing every day. My first juice was:
4 kale leaves
2 celery stalks
1 tiny chunk ginger
2 red apples
1 cucumber
1 lemon (peeled)

Wow! It is SO flavorful! I didn't expect it to taste so sweet and apple-ish. I am really looking forward to this. I have been slowly losing weight over the last couple of years, and I have about 50 lbs left that I would like to lose. I also have annoying acne that I would like to clear up, and I really really hope that I can do that through juicing.

I had lapband surgery last year, and eat a protein rich diet, but I feel like I need more nutrients. I got a couple vitamin IVs at my naturopath in Dec and Jan because my immune system was just shot and I was sick all the time. My ND encouraged me to look into juicing. When I watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, I knew that this was my answer. I have a hard time with solid foods sometimes, but this I can do!

A relative of mine said she just recently got the Ninja. I, too, am on a tight budget and just got a juicer on sale at GNC for $39.99. This may not last forever but until I can put more $$ into a juicer, it will work.

Once my tax season ends, I plan on doing a week of juicing. For now, however, I juice in the morning and then use the spinach pulp and egg whites to have as a mid-morning snack/omelette. Even with the one juice a day, I now think clearer, need less caffeine and feel better starting the day than before I did.

I can't wait to to a week of it, but with my work stresses and hours I don't want to do anything that would be too transforming while on limited sleep.

Are you afraid to try or are you afraid to fail?

I've just started day 4 and it seems to be getting a little easier. I feel great!! Making sure I get 120 oz. of juice, veg and fruit. A GREAT weightloss juice is: 1/2 Beet, 2 stalks celery, 2 carrots, 2 green apples, 1/2 red pepper, peeled lemon and 1 in. ginger. Keeps everything moving in the right direction!!! :o)

Wishing you all the best! I'm shooting for 30 days and I'm down 10.5 so far. Trying to gear up for after the fast, which is when my real challenge begins!!!

unfortunately there are no GREAT juicers under $100 that would be worth buying. I have already burned through three of them. My next juicer will be the greenstar. sometimes it is worth just saving money and getting the better one. Go Omega or Brevstar.

I started a 3 day juice fast last weekend (day 2 KILLED ME) and then went to juicing for breakfast, lunch and "snacks" and eat a small dinner of salad and chicken breast or other lean protien.

I find I have more energy and my thought process seems clearer. One thing I have found that with juicing, I am able to get the benefits of more fruits and veggies than I could possibly ever eat during the day. This means more vitamins and phytonutrients.

Many neighsayers say to just eat the fruits and veggies or blend them because with juicing you lose the fiber. I've read however that with juicing that is exactly the point. You want to remove the fiber so you can absorb the phytonutrients and vitamins more quickly. Fiber can block full absorbtion of all of these.

I found this on phytonutrients, pretty helpful. http://www.webmd.com/diet/phytonutrients-faq

I am diabetic (controlled right now through diet) and I would be afraid to add too much fruit, but I would love to get more veggies in my diet. :)

I am doing the juicing as well. I am on day 8. In the morning I do a big juicing so that I can take a pitcher to work. When I make it in the morning I usually do mostly fruit with a few veggies like Kale, cucumber and spinich with a bunch of fruit. This actually keeps me full throughout my work day and then when I get home I juice and that is mostly veggies with an apple or orange in it. Hang in there. You will have days where you will want to quit and say "why am I doing this" and then there are days where you will know that you are doing this to improve your health.
I hear you on the weight loss. I have been up and down more than I can remember. My closet I have from size 2-22. Yes 22 and yes 2. I am 5'2 but I weight 197lbs. I use to weigh 210 at the beginning of this year. I am 32 and a nurse manager which you would think runs around a lot but I don't. I am a desk nurse. When I was early in my nursing career I was so fit because I would be literally running while I worked.
I have not decided if I want to go for the full 30 or 60 days. My goal is 10 days.
Keep it up you are doing great WHISKEYTANGO

I have just started juicing myself. This is the beginning of my 3rd day, but I am 2 and 1/2 days in. I started in the afternoon on Sunday. I am okay for most of the day, then start to get very very hungry. But I am using all the willpower I have to refrain from breaking my juicing reboot. I have a lot of weight to lose, and although I have LOST a lot of weight too, I am getting desperate for better results. I am 31 and weighed in today at 253. This is down from an average over the last several years about 280. I weighed 300 when I went in to deliver my baby and more when I left the hospital, due to fluid retention and severe trauma. I am proud of how far I have come, and hope that this helps me to reach one-derland again! I would love to keep in touch with you about how your doing on yours. Mine is home juiced fresh veggies only. I do not know for how long I will do the juice solely- that is really based on how I feel, and the results I am getting. So far, so good!

I have been researching this and have tried a few trial runs of green juice using Kale, green apples, a lemon, an orange, and cucumbers and I honestly do not know what all the fuss is about. All my juice thus far has tasted really good and since I quit drinking diet soda weeks before I started juicing so I have not had any of the detox issues. I plan to start full on juicing this Wednesday. :)

I don't juice regularly, because I don't think it is necessary, and does not necessarily lead to improved health. But I do juice on occasion.

I use my Smart Stick immersion blender rather than a regular juicer. Yes. I WANT to keep all that fiber and pulp in my beverage! If it is just straight liquid, you're going to lose a lot of the nutrients and definitely the healthy fiber, and you'll just have mostly... sugars. I don't consider juicing as a cleansing or de-toxification -- just a different way to get in healthy vegetables. (And the Smart Stick is about as inexpensive as you can get! -- I also didn't need to find non-existent counter space for a traditional juicer, either.)

Some good things I've thrown in the juicer (you may have to pre-chop a few things to get them started for a Smart Stick, and sometimes add in a little water): Cuke, celery, avocado, onion (small amount), spinach, cabbage. Because I am a sourpuss I'll often add a little lemon or lime or on rare occasions, blood orange (neat color!) Recipes vary as to what is on hand or inspirational. Once made, I will dilute what I plan to drink at the moment with selzter water/club soda to the desired consistency, and refrigerate the rest.

Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)

The Nutribullet isn't a juicer, it's a blender. You could get a regular blender for $25 or less, or a handheld immersion blender for $35.

If it's too expensive and you don't get the Nutrabullet, you can still make the Nutrablast shakes in your juicer.

Try one. It won't taste like dirt, it will be sweet, you'll get 3-5 fruits and veggies out of it and you will feel full and energized. I guaranty it.
