I’m on the 3rd day of my juice fast now, love your recipes and its not going so bad. I have a couple of questions. I only really crave food at night, during most of the day I don’t have the cravings, but around 8 or 9pm, all i can think about is food and it makes it hard to go to sleep even though Im drinking 6 16oz juices per day. My other question is, would it be ok to juice like tomato, spinach, and carrot or something similar and then heat it and add spices to make a soup? Thanks!
The second is masticating juicers which are much more effective when juicing highly nutritious greens like spinach, kale, etc. It also produces the highest quality and quantity of juices than centrifugal juicers.

First off..love this blog! It’s so informative! I was just diagnosed with PCOS and started medication that has caused me to break out terribly and just leaves me feeling bleh. I want to try juicing to cleanse and of course lose weight (what woman doesn’t want that)I don’t have a juicer and don’t want to break the bank (hello..college student) Is there a way to use a blender or even a magic bullet instead of buying a really expensive juicer and still get good cleansing/weight loss results?
Figgs, there is no need for fiber while on a juice fast. You aren’t consuming any solids so there is nothing for your system to digest. The whole point is to avoid solids and fiber of any kind. If you do have solids/fiber you aren’t on a juice fast as it kicks your digestive system back into gear. The juice fast works by not using your digestive system and allowing it to cleanse, giving you back the energy that was usually used for digesting. This in turn not just cleanses your digestive system but creates a symptom of low toxicity in your system. You system noticing this low toxicity is much more apt to release toxins (which are stored in fat cells) helping you to cleanse and lose weight while taking in all the nutrients you need. Just drink the juice, follow the fast, and you’ll be fine. There’s no need to add anything to your juices, it will only slow down the effect.

Try changing up all of your juices. I just posted a good plan on the forums at http://www.justonjuice.com/forum/justonjuice-forum-group1/group-juice-fasts-forum3/new-3-day-group-juice-fast-starting-monday-july-15th-thread94/
Juice all the ingredients. If you have a Philips whole-fruit juicer, all you need to do is place one whole apple in the chute followed by all the other ingredients, finishing off with the other apple.
Hi! I’m thinking about starting juicing. 3 years ago I got really sick and was put on a crazy amount of steroids. I put on 90 lbs in 3 months. I really need to lose the weight for health issues. I’m worried about juicing because I don’t like fruits and veggies and I am worried I won’t like the flavor. Any suggestions to get started for people with picky taste? Thanks!
Thanks Cristian! I’m glad you enjoy JOJ! While you can’t use a blender to go on a juice fast, you also don’t need to break the bank and get a really expensive juicer. Look at http://www.justonjuice.com/juicers/ and take a look at the Hamilton Beach. It often goes on sale for $49. Take a look and get yourself a juicer! It will be the best investment you can make for your health.
Hi Donnie, my boyfriend and I will start juicing tomorrow morning. We have been really excited to start right after the holidays. I was reading other posts on this site and was surprised to hear how many people are starting on Monday. We choose Saturday because we are off work for the weekend and are prepared for the detox and possible irritable side affects….. We have a 2 yr old son and I have always been pro organic when it comes to his food, but not mine, that is until my boyfriend saw the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix. He started trying your juicing recipes the next day. He is tall, thin and is great shape, so I was surprised to of his new-found passion for organic juicing. I myself am short and fat (256 lbs), worst shape of my life. I was athletic until I had our son. I’m so excited we found this! And thank you for all the great recipes and advice. My goal is to be under 200lbs by Memorial Day! I plan on juicing for 30 days!
So I are breakfast fruit coffe and egg, sometimes bread. (300) calories then I ate like 10 cherries for moring snack, then always had a big salad full of all kinds of vegetables, try low fat dressings or olive oil. With chicken. Dinner again another massive salad.
Hi, instead of juicing, could this be run through a vitamix? I get freaked out about too much orange juice…good food/bad food programming, I know. But the using the whole orange makes me feel better about it. Thoughts??
