Hi Garrick, thanks for the well thought out article! Do you know if it is OK for people with low blood count/low blood pressure to start their day with lemon water? Also this might be an issue for those with gastro-intestinal issues as well (like hyperacidity). Your thoughts?
Sarah, thanks for you comment and congrats on ordering your juicer and deciding to start a juice fast! You can have between 4-6 juices per day with each being around 16-20 ounces. I find it best to enjoy a juice whenever you feel hungry. Let your body tell you when to have a juice and it will do amazing things for you! I’ll be here if you have any questions Sarah.
All vegetables are alkalizing (my clients know ALL about this!!). The benefits of maintaining alkalinity in the body are crucial. There are entire books written on the subject and this is something that I cover in detail in my private one-on-one sessions, so without getting into too much detail, here are just a few benefits of maintaining an alkaline environment in our tissues:
I hear that when you come off your fast eating is hard to adapt to. Is that true? Does your stomach hurt when eating again? Should I just stick with veggies and fruit to eat the first day after cleanse?

Farheen, when you travel you may have trouble if you don’t have access to your juicer. If you can’t juice the best thing to do would be to only eat fresh fruits and veggies throughout your stay and ten hop back on your fast as soon as you can.
Personally, when it comes to juicing recipes for weight loss, this is one of my favorites. The combination of lemon, apple, and cucumber comes together to create a hugely refreshing way to burn fat wherever you are. Research at Arizona State University found that the vitamin C in lemon can help you oxidize 30% more fat!
Stevia in a later phase), white fllour, and white salt. After phase 1 and maybe even phase 2, you slkwly reintroduce certain foods one at a time to find which ones you have trouble with (for example wheat allergies). It’s not a juicing book.
Angie, if you juiced for three months you may possibly lose between pounds (4-7st). As far as side effects there’s not really much besides the typical side effects. I wouldn’t go longer than than 100 days though. I wish you the best of luck on your goal and please keep me posted Angie.
Hi, I have started the juice only diet today I have 2 weeks to lose a dress size and a half I will also be exercising everyday, do you think this is possible? Also I work long shifts so is it ok to take my juice and store it in a fridge? Thank you for taking time to read and answer this message.
Surprisingly, watermelons are not just a refreshingly sweet, thirst quenching fruit, but are actually abundant in nutritional benefits, from vitamins and minerals to phytonutrients. They’re rich in vitamins A, C and B-complex compounds such as thiamin, riboflavin and pyridoxine. Watermelons afford a wealth of beta-carotenes, as well as folate, pantothenic acid, the amino acid citrulline and antioxidants lycopene, cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin. They also contain anti-inflammatory phenolic compounds, which include both lycopene and tripterpenoid. They’re plentiful in the minerals potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and copper, with trace amounts of selenium, iron and even calcium. The seeds of the fruit offer a wealth of nutrients as well, and should not be overlooked! Because watermelon is so nutrient rich, it’s a great juice for fasting, cleansing and weight loss
For me, a tough part of the Reboot was that I did it in the winter. I think a summer Reboot would be easier – who doesn’t love to drink lots of healthy cold juices on a hot day! Also, managing to say ‘no’ to foods that were outside of my Reboot was tricky, particularly at work, especially when people challenged what I was doing. I found, and still do find it easier to say ‘no’ to everything that is not part of my new lifestyle, rather than saying ‘yes’ to some things, as I know it would be easy to fall into old habits otherwise. Lastly, trying to do too many different juices was tricky. I decided to stick to just a few ‘favourites’ so that food didn’t go to waste, and I could organise my fridge and do my shopping more efficiently.

At my heaviest, I was 177. I think I was about 174 when I got serious. My short-term goal was to get to 160 in time for the ball. I’m happy to report that when I stepped on the scale yesterday morning I was 159! Still more to go, but it’s been many years since that 2nd number on the scale was a 5!
Hello!! I weight 227 I am 5’2 and I need to lose 60lbs or more. I was going to start juicing in the morning and having Greek yogurt for lunch with another juice and for dinner a salad with some chicken and no fat dressing. Will that help me lose weight? Also I will be walking/jogging 30mins a day. Please give me any advice u have!!! I need help.
Juicing is no healthier than eating whole fruits and vegetables. When comparing gram weights, juice is not more nutritious than the whole produce. In fact, it is often lower in many nutrients, and the beneficial fiber is near zero. Contrary to some claims, your body does not absorb the nutrients better in juice form.
Kale, a dark-green leafy vegetable, rivals just about every other food in the produce section when it comes to nutrient density. The vast majority of kale juice benefits are believed to come from is high concentration of various essential vitamins and nutrients. One…

The biggest thing I noticed within about 3 days of starting the cleanse is that my joints don’t ache so much. I know I had a lot of inflammation. My fingers ached a lot and knees and hips, but now it’s much much less. The other thing I’ve started checking is my BP. Honestly, I was scared to take it before I started. I know it was rarely if ever under 140/90 with a heart rate in the upper 80s or even low 90’s. I just took it this evening and it was 128/77 with a heart rate of 71. Pretty dramatic results in a short time frame.
So let me get this straight.. you’re saying people lose weight because they are juicing mostly fruits and veggies that don’t taste good? You’ve obviously never juiced and don’t know what you’re talking about. Weight loss occurs because you are flushing your body with a high amount of nutrition. This creates a system of low toxicity in your body and allows your body to release it’s toxins (stored in fat). The toxins leaving your body allow the nutrients to balance your system and give you the nutrition you’ve been lacking. Also, juices taste amazingly good and almost everyone who I have helped juice agrees.
