Hi, I am delighted to have found this group. The longest I have fasted on a strictly juice fast was 29 days and that was over 10 years ago. I am praying for the discipline to do a 60 day fast and then become a vegetarian. I need all of the support I can get and I will do the same.

Sounds like your meal plans are doable. Yes, preparation is the key. My WW leader would tell us that..... "If you fail to plan... you plan to fail!"

No sorry I don't have a link... but here is the info. 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse by J.J. Smith. I bought it at Amazon.com.

Do you have a link to the green smoothie cleanse? New ideas would be great. I do find that you have to prepare ahead of time so that you have what you need for a good start.
I hope it is easier than you thought. I think some can depend on your diet before you start - as in how much your body has to detox, but I thought it was easier than I had anticipated.

I'm juicing for breakfast and then today for lunch I had a big salad, with just veggies and a little olive oil and vinegar, and an apple.

I had a green juice for snack, and then stir fry veggies with some whole wheat noodles. So I am not doing a strictly juice diet, but trying for most of my food to be raw/and/or veggies.

In CHRIST I can!

Yes! We can encourage one another in this quest! I won't be starting until Tuesday. I'm actually doing the 10 day Green Smoothie Cleanse. I need to do the shopping first. I've never done this before. I'm a little nervous, but I'm praying for strength for the journey. I'll be looking for your updates on your progress.

Great idea about doing the juicing 10 days at a time. I am starting (again) tomorrow with the 10 day program. The last time I did this (just 2 months ago) I lost 9 pounds in 11 days. I hope I have the stamina to go then for another 10 days and make some major progess.
I hope we can support one another on this.

Hello everyone,

I joined SP in April, 2014. I achieved some success, however, I had some back problems that side lined me along with medication that caused weight gain (#tears), then surgery and recovery, then I was in the process of moving... so I fell off. I've been away from SP for a while and now returning as of last week.

I too have watched the movie Fat, Sick.... back in February and was inspired. I'm not sure I could make 60 days in a row, so I'm doing it 10 days at a time. I will be beginning my journey on Tuesday. I've read so many testimonials about juicing and I also have a dear friend who was successful. I need a kick-start on dropping some pounds. I've been sick and tired toooo long! (not a new story - ikr!)

I know one thing for certain, I will fail if I don't try. Wish me luck!

Nicole - best wishes on the juicing. About the protein - depending on how long you do it, I don't think it is a problem. Joe Cross does sell a protein powder, but he himself didn't supplement during his 60 day juicing fast.
Also - cows never worry about it and they still have plenty of muscle in spite of eating only grass. Our bodies do produce some protein even on a vegan diet.

In CHRIST I can!

Hey everyone my name is Nicole. I am new to juicing. My mom did it for awhile and would force it onto me but now I'm ready. I just told my mom and hubby I will be doing it from this coming Saturday to mid Sept when we have our renewal wedding. That will be 25 days. What does everyone do for protein?

Hi,

I am on day 42 of my 60 day juice fast. I am 54 years old and feel so so much better than when I started! I have lost over 20 lbs. but I have also doing strength training so I am pretty sure I am building muscle in addition.

My clothes are lose and I can fit into some clothes I have saved in my closet for years just hoping I might get in them again some day.

I sleep so well and have lots of energy for exercise and mental work. I miss the whole chewing, smelling,tasting and social part of eating but as I say to myself often, "I will eat again".

I am worried about not gaining the weight back and continuing to lose weight when I break the fast next month. I am already planning to eat mostly salads and soups with very small amounts of protein and watching my portion sizes.

I can not tell you what a great decision this was and how happy I am every day. I am finally taking care of me emoticon

I never came here to introduce myself.
I'm 52 and am on day 7 of a 15 day reboot. The first 5 days were eating/juicing, and the next 10 just juicing.
So far so good. I enjoyed the recipes from Joe's website.
I started juicing in February. I had an old juicer that I dug out, but it broke the first time I used it. Then we ordered one, which I really liked, but I don't think it will last. It is a slow juicer, so gets a lot more juice than the centrifugal ones.
I recently got my dream juicer - the champion juicer. It gets even more juice than the slow juicer. I can do a lot of other things with it as well.
I have already made some huge changed in my diet since being on spark but this is really taking it to another level, and I want to stay with eating whole foods - which I have mostly done in 2014.
My DH is on board with me so that helps a lot. My 17 year old is "suffering" with his daily juice, but knows he has to drink it.
I also have 5 other children, but they live in the States and 4 of those are married and I have 11 grandblessings.


In CHRIST I can!

Hey Cheryl--my 10 day was good. I definitely broke through some eating habits that I had developed and I lost 13 pounds. If found that after day 4 drinking juice was no longer a physical accomplishment but all mental--like I wanted to eat but my body didn't feel like it needed food. I kept all of it off for a long time, but the old habits crept back in and now I'm back where I was. I definitely have to make a life style change but I'm hoping I will break even more habits with 40 days and also just prove to myself that I am not a slave to food. I need to do this not only for health but also just to say "I did it", you know? This group is definitely going to help! Otherwise I'm alone.

Hi Mango,

Thanks for reaching out to me and good luck to us both emoticon I am going for 3+ juice meals with vita supplements for 30 days and today, day 3, I woke up feeling absolutely great emoticon . I won this great juicer last year and tried juicing two meals, then eating a "light" dinner. It didn't work out too well because that "light meal" turned into a Thanksgiving meal every night lol, I fooled myself into thinking twice a day would outweigh the negative and it didn't. I did find that I enjoy the taste of most veggies/fruit and watched a lot of YouTube videos and told myself it's now or never.

Mentally, it's tough and I'm reaching for food ALL THE TIME. Trying to keep occupied with my kids/internet and also drinking a lot of water with lemon slices. How did the 10 day go for you? emoticon emoticon

I am excited to be on this team. Today is day 3 of 30 days of juicing and I can't believe the change in my mood! Is this normal? I added flax seed oil in yesterday's juice, other than that I can't think of anything different that I did. There's nothing like crashing after feeling good and please oh please don't let that happen.

I'll enjoy the good mood and enjoy the sunshine. emoticon Thank you SparkPeople!

I am on day 1 of a two week juice cleanse! This juice cleanse will kick off the start of my 90lb weight loss goal. After the juice cleanse I want to stick to a Paleo-type diet of low carbs and lots of veggies and lean protein. I want to achieve my goal by my 29th birthday - April 2015.

Looking forward to the topics and support this group will provide on my journey!

Hi All! I'm Amy & I am on Day 2 of a 15 day juice fast but I'm hoping that I will gain momentum and go for 60 days. I'm doing this because I've battled a few health issues and it's affected my ability to lose weight. I'm BUMMED and need to reboot everything. I'm SO stoked to find a group on here! The success stories are SO motivating! emoticon And the side effect stories are reassuring...I'm still in shock over reading someone's post about "worms"...I thought what I experienced was bad until I read that. emoticon

I ordered Joe's recipe book and have been using recipes I found on his website and through pinterest. Cheers! emoticon

My name is Melissa and I am waiting on a piece for my juicer to begin the Reboot with Joe. I plan on doing the 5 day fast at least. I have a few health problems and need to increase my vegetable and fruit intake. I am also hoping that this really will reboot my taste buds!

Hi Everybody! I'm Vanessa i live just outside of Atlanta,GA. I'm Starting a 60 day Juice fast Jan 22, 2014 which also happen to be my 28th birthday. I seen FSND maybe 2 years ago and had it in my mind that i wanted to to a fast but never really the courage or the funds. But i have decided all the money i spend on fast food and other junk can be better spent on produce to get my self healthy. I am doing this for 2 reasons, i have some pretty awful eating habits that i would like to break, and weight loss. I just want to be healthy and more active. I Plan on pairing my juice fast with an amazing Yoga program DDPYoga. And i firmly believe that i can accomplish my 55 pound goal. I have my Post juice fast plans in place, to become Gluten, dairy, and sugar free.

Hi everyone! I'm starting a 60 days (I hope) juice fast starting 22 Jan 2014. I aim to drop 40 lbs. So sick and tired of carrying these excess weight and toxins and feeling unhealthy and avoiding meet up with family and friends.

I don't know how long I can go, but I'm aiming for at least 40 days. I'm so so soooo bad when it comes to staying motivated, so do join me and let's be one another's encourager in this journey! :)

Hello:) I'm currently on day 3 of a 60 day juice fast. I found this group in a web search and it's exactly what I needed *support*! I did a 21 day fast before and had great results, but I fell to temptation on day 21, but now I'm ready for success:)

I am on Day 9 of a long-term fast. I am hoping to go 40-50 days. It would be great to have support and get advice while going longer this time. The longest fast I did before this was 18 days. I have been mostly vegan and have done so much Mean Green juicing this past year. My latest addition to my juicing fast is prune juice and spirolina. (I was inspired by "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.)

Hi Everyone, I am Nikki. My hubby and I watched FSND a few weeks ago and gave it some serious thought about doing a 10 day fast to see how it goes. We are staring on Jan 6th together which I hope will make it better to stay accountable!!

Greetings,

I am winding down on day 1 of my juicing - be it a feast or a fast. I have seen FSND on many occasions but now I feel it is right for me. My goal is to do 40 and then re-evaluate after that. I am glad to be here!

Hi everyone ......... I am 2BDYNAMIC ....... (friends usually call me 2B) ..........
I just joined team ........... I have one of the mighty 'turbo' blenders which I absolutely love!
I have been juicing for several months ....... (Greendrinks) ................ My DH and I have seen emoticon health results! .......... Both his and my Doctors' have commented and taken notice w/ so many changes! ...........
I am not fasting ......... But for one: My breakfast is no longer a large meal ........... is not necessary w/ the completeness of the drink. A typical drink made first thing looks like:

Kale--Spinach--1 rib celery
1-2 organic carrots
handful of watercress
baby bok choy
Blueberries/ one banana
Chia seeds
2 Tbs. Flax oil
1 scoop brewers yeast
cover w/ ice water

I absolutely LOVE organic grapefruit juice!!! ............. So I add approx. 1 Cup
and a chunk of Ginger ...........
AFTERNOONS: (esp on a hot day) ......... I love to make :
Organic carrots
Pineapple
small amt greens
Opt: apple
Grapefruit juice and generous amt. ginger
It is so tangy and refreshing!

I am amazed at how daily juicing (green drinks) curb appetite and I no longer want a lot of things I used to like! .......... same for hubby!
I am looking forward to meeting anyone who has like interests ............. emoticon

Hi everybody! I'm Windsong, 27 years old, and this will be my first juice fast... I'm on day One. I've had a problem with yo-yo weight over the years, ranging from 120 - 200+ lbs, but it has been getting harder and harder to drop the weight I gain. I've been between the same ten pounds for over a year now, but I don't feel healthy. I'm always tired, using alcohol to handle stress, pumping my body full of pharma just to get by. My days usually consist of 2 hours driving, 9 hours at a desk, then home to sit for a few more hours with a book or video game until bed. I've been slowly changing my eating habits, but it's not enough. At home, I have a wonderful husband (who cooks like a world class chef) and a 14 year old son who loves pizza (big surprise, hm?).

So, here I am... I need a lifestyle change, and kicking it off with a juice fast is what I feel is right. It will be hard though. I have some support from my family, but not many friends, and with some of them, every time I do something to better myself I get negative feedback. I've done the research and know what is coming in the next 30 days... I'm so glad there's a whole group of people who understand. Thank you for all being here, so the rest of us know we're not alone!

Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they're yours. ~Richard Bach

Hi I'm Sherry, 64 yr old .recently watched FSND....TWICE! Also several other very good nutritional documentaries...forks over knives etc. I ve been on Spark people for about three yrs. just retired dec of 2012 and promptly put on 50 lbs! Currently staying with daughter and her hubby until grand daughter is born first of Sept2013. My juicers and blenders are at home 2000 miles away. So my juicing will be delayed for another 6 or 8 weeks. I have very little say over the groceries brought into the house but when I get home I am deffinitely getting back into good nutrition. I had lost 70 lbs changed many unhealthy habits but here I am 50 lbs up! And that was after keeping that weight off for three yrs! I am mad at myself but while I wait to get home I am studying up on this better nutrition.

I have a question...how many times a day do you drink the juices? I know they must be freshly juiced to get the benefits of the enzymes. How many ounces do you drink each time? How much water is drunk daily? I like the guideline of 20% fruit and 80% vegetables. But with all my research I just don't know the daily amounts. Do we drink three times a day? Every Six hours? Only when you are hungry? Please help. I want to get it right.

Start each day fresh, the slate is clean , make good choices today.....for better results tomorrow.

Hello, I'm Deb, I'm 53 years old and I have been juicing for 7 days now. I wanted to juice for the whole 60, but was thinking with Father's Day coming and grilling season etc I would stop today. Then I found this site. Maybe I can keep going? I definitely need new recipe's though. I've been juicing mostly kale, apples, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, lemons, limes, ginger, berries and beets. I purchased a Hurom from Home Depot. It squeezes instead of chops. So if anybody wants to journey this road together talk to me...I'm needing some encouragement. By the way...you will feel lousy the first three days but after that you will have energy and feel fresh and healthy. I lost 15lbs this week and only added walking and a bit of biking to my days. It is getting hard to walk around the neighborhood though smelling all those bbqs going. But with a little encouragement..I could be persuaded to keep going:) Thanks

Hi, I am Sam. 45 year old and 80 pounds overweight. I started a juice fast last month and lasted 10 days before I slipped and ate wheat bread. Then, in true addict fashion, I completely fell off of the wagon. I had lost 16 pounds but have gained 4 back in the past 3 days.
I will call that fast my "practice run" and now I am full on read for a 60 day fast. I loved the way I felt. I had more energy and the chronic itchy rashes I get disappeared!! I felt great!

So long story short, I am fully committed. NO cheating! And NO listening to those around me who tell me my decision is "crazy and unsustainable". Please. Everything is a choice right?

Day one, here I come!

RIKITT, I live in B.C. too! Where are you?

I'm glad I found this group. I was inspired by Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and my dr. gave me the go ahead to do a juice reboot last night. I'm still reading the book and I think it's important I finish it before I start, but I've bought a new juice and it's ready to go! I just want to make sure I know everything I need to know before I start. I'll probably start with a 3 day plan and see how I do on that, then work my way up. I'm a little concerned about sugar/carb cravings while I'm juicing and also how juices will taste, but I'm up to the task.

Hello :)

I'm new to the SP, but I'm really finding it to be a useful tool, I have already been inspired in so many ways.

I live in BC, and I'm in my 30s. I grew up drinking fresh juices from my dad's garden, because he was a health nut, but I never really thought about doing it as a supplement to my adult diet... Until now. I have battled some health issues over the past couple years, and I've ended up gaining nearly 100 pounds. I want to get back to a healthy weight, so that I can get back into the things that I enjoyed doing, prior to getting sick, especially running, which I cannot physically do anymore.

I'm starting a 30 day juice fast tomorrow, and would love some support and advice. This will be my second juice fast, and though I never thought I would admit it, my dad was on to something.

If you'd like any information about me, please visit my blog. I'm an avid writer, sometimes with a sense of humour, but would love to share experiences, and advice.

Juice FTW

Nothing worth having comes easy.

Hi, I'm Julia - I'm in Kansas!! I just posted a link here after watching the "Fat Sick & Nearly Dead" documentary on YouTube this afternoon. I've been on his website for the past two or three years, ever since my girlfriend and I watched it on her NetFlix account a few years ago. Husband already owned a 70's style centrifugal juicer and later on, I bought myself a Vitamix (we inherited his mom's old 70's vintage Vitamix - so old, they didn't have the backup documentation on their website, )....they have an upgrade program where you send in your old one and let them know when you are ordering a new or refurbished one (like I did) and they sent a packing slip for the old VitaMix. After they got it, then they issued a $100 credit to my credit card - so it's a cheaper way to get a VitaMix (don't worry if you don't have an old one - look out for old VitaMixs in garage or estate sales!)....

Annnnyway I really want to do this BEFORE I get to be as big as Joe or Phil, or BEFORE I have to be on gobs of medications... I just mixed up a smoothie earlier today. Need to go buy up some more freggies tomorrow.

It's tougher when our son is such a junk food junkie and won't drink the juices... he's tried them in previous years but I've just not been consistent...but I just gotta do this, ya know??? And the spring and summer will be good times to work on this!

See you around!
Julia

Hi!
I have watched this movie a thousand times! I know alot of people think this is so extreme and are trying to talk me out of doing a juicefast! You're still getting really healthy food and lots of food. But they don't want to see that. You need to do what is right for you I guess. Glad to be here! emoticon

Hi juicers!

My juicer is on order, and I am excited to start! I have watched the movie that inspired this group, but it wasn't until recently that I have had the motivation to start.

Honestly, there are a lot of people out there that think it's a horrible thing, but I have been at a point of my journey where I am tired of trying to make food and I would just rather make juice. Who says you have to chew your nutrients?!?!

Hello fellow juicers! I'm Jen-Marie, and today is my first day of a 60 day juice fast. I'd love to find some buddies here on this team. I love to encourage and support others, and I welcome the same from them.

Today, I'm having Morning Green Glory, Sunburst, Clean and Green, and Red Rush juices. They are all delicious. I hope they continue to be delicious the whole rest of this week...

Looking forward to getting to know you. Have a great day and please feel free to friend me, point me to blogs and articles you like, and tell me how your juicing is going.

Hello All!

I'm Kamau and I'm looking for a juicing buddy in the Bay Area (someone to try to recipes with, go walk around Lake Merritt in Oakland). I don't have as much support as I would like and would love to have someone to support as well as there to support me.

I'm starting on February 15th, any takers?

I just recently watched FSND and also got a gift card to a fancy kitchen store from my boss so come nex paycheck I'm getting a juicer! I'm preparing my body over the next 2 weeks by not eating meat, next will be the more processed foods, and after that dairy.

I'm excited to go on this journey and feel what its like to be healthier and happier inside and out!

Wow! I didn't know this group even existed! I was looking for juicing teams the other night after watching FSND for the first time. What an impactful, inspiring movie! I made plans to cleanse and detox for the New Year, but I believe juicing is a big piece of the puzzle. My husband and I are definitely on board. He will juice at least 10 days and go from there. I hope to go the distance and do the full 60 days.

I have PCOS and hypothyroidism which will present special problems when trying to do this fast. My research shows that those who have PCOS and do this juice fast don't typically shed weight rapidly. One person lost 12 lbs in 40 days, I think? But for me, weight loss will be a perk and will help towards my long-term goal of losing 100 lb.

I hope to:
~reverse pre-diabetes and pre-hypertension
~re-activate my sluggish thyroid
~heal my body by giving it a break through juicing!
~recover more strength and vitality that PCOS has robbed me of over the yrs.
~create a lifelong habit of intermittent juice fasting for physical and spiritual goals.

Glad to be here. emoticon Let's get juicing! emoticon

(Special thanks to member Swanatopia for pointing the way to this group)

Hello from Utah. It's cold and snowy here otherwise I would be out on my Bike. Hope everyone is having a wonderful relaxing Sunday. I have been on a juice fast for the last 5 days and feeling great. I thought I would be hungry, sick and having withdrawals. I'm hoping for Joe Cross results. I'm 65 years old, not on any medications, only 30 pounds over weight (not 100) and I don't have an autoimmune disease. I have been physically active most of my life. So I think I have a little head start from where Joe started.

I am joining SCOJEN challenge for 2013. Let's all join in and Row this boat ashore. Mateys!

Hi I'm Fiona,

Today is my first day juicing! I am going to be posting my progress pics in my blog and trying to keep myself going. Who knows maybe I will take this 60 day challenge into 100days before I start the Dr, Fuhrman diet. Good luck to us all.
