I've probably going to go with a Breville Juice Fountain.

When my wife and I first started dating 30 years ago, we rented a cabin and did a 30-day Juice feast. So I know about the need for enemas and using only juice, fresh from the juicer. Back then, we did enemas with black-coffee to super-cleanse. A bit extreme I think. We are gearing up to begin, however the juicer we have is a low-grade. It spills all over the counter. Does anyone have a good recommendation?

I can say that I did an all juice day last Saturday and am longing for this saturday when we'll do it again. I drink at least 3 cups of fresh juice every day and it feels like supreme nourishment every time. Doing just one all-juice day seemed to re-set my appetite or something and I'm satisfied with very little food and has made me extremely discriminating as far as food. I love it!

Karen, I am AMAZED by how much weight you have lost. Are you only drinking green juice or are you eating a plant based diet as well? I watched Hungry for Change seven times last week when it was free to view. I learned so much, and now I really want to do a juice feast. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is available to watch online for $3.99 and I'll probably watch it next week. For now I bought a second hand Jack Lalane juicer and hopefully later in the year I'll buy a Breville Juice Fountain. I run a vegan personal chef business and a lot of my customers order green smoothies from me, but we're all really excited to get into juicing. I love the idea of doing a really good cleanse and to get ready for it, I've eliminated all processed food and nearly all cooked food. I thought it would be hard to eat just raw, but it's not. I drink a lot of water, drink two smoothies a day, drink herbal tea and eat a HUGE salad for supper. I feel AMAZING. :D I'm currently doing a three month Beach Body challenge which ends at the end of June. I want to juice feast for the summer months of July and August when I can access fresh organic fruits and vegetables.

Thank you for all your inspiration! I'll join your other team too.

Do it!! There are many ways to start a Juice Feast. Joe Cross's website Join the Reboot, has options to ease in to it or go full blast. I have tried several Juice Feasts and Raw Food/Juice Detoxes and I have always felt amazing on them. You can only do your body good by eating more veggies. Best of luck.
Watch Forks Over Knives and Hungry for Change. Forks Over Knives is on Netflix. Hungry for Change just came out. It might be available on Netflix later this year.

I am on day 47 of a 92 day juice feast. I am co-leader of the Juice Feasters team here on Spark.

One subject they didn't tell you about is the need to do enemas while beginning an extended juice feast journey.

Our body builds up loads of toxins which are stored in fat and in the organs. These need to be released. Resting the metabolic process of digestion is the first step. Ingesting as much juice as you can take in gives you the necessary nutrition to keep you going. Enemas help the body to release.

Is it safe? Of course it is! The Mayo clinic uses the JuiceFeasting.com protocol. Is it uncomfortable at times? Yes it is. But being sick, chronically toxic and dying an early death is worse.

The best way of course to learn about juice feasing is to join my group and read the threads. This is nothing to play with. It is a serious healing protocol to be taken on by people who are 100% sincere about getting vibrant health.

SparkMail me for more info.

I saw a documentary last week on Netflix "Fat, Sick and nearly Dead" About an obese man who turned his life around by going on a 60-day juice fast. Others also tried it including a woman who cured her migraines by going on a 10-day fast. My wife and I are considering it. I am wondering if it might do more damage than good.
