Welcome to JOJ Lita! Congrats on buying your juicer and getting ready to start your 10 day juice fast! It’s going to be a wonderful experience for you! Keep me posted and know that I’m here if you need me.
You won’t get the same results if you include solids. Yes, smoothies are considered solids as they use the pulp and fibers from the fruits and vegetables. If you want results then stick to the juices and let them work their magic! It will be worth it! 80 ounces would be sufficient. Anywhere 64-120 ounces is normal. Drink water directly after a juice and also have some between juices. Water helps with absorbing the nutrients, and it also helps with the detox process.
Sarah, I’m sorry to hear of your injury. If you want to lose weight the I would suggest you stick to just juice. If you have 4-6 juices per day, drink plenty of water, and don’t eat any solids the weight will start to fly off and you’ll be feeling fantastic in no time! Let me know if you have any questions Sarah!
Ok, I took the orange out of the juice and my acid has been greatly reduced. U were correct, it was the orange! Since I had been juicing for a week and had built up so much acid, I felt sick so I went ahead and went off the juice for a couple days and am getting ready to get back on track. I tasted the juice I was originally doing (celery, cucumber, spinach, apple, orange, carrot, lemon), but without the orange, it did not taste nearly as good. This is my next question- I really want to lose weight immediately, this is a huge priority. What is the best recipe to use for me to kick start this weight loss and have great results? I will not b using any oranges. Thanks so much!!!
Hi there! Welcome to Chef Effect’s Website. Our mission is to encourage and inspire people to improve their lifestyles through diet books and cookbooks, and articles related to health and well-being. We provide solutions to help you eat better, stick to a balanced diet, and enhance your knowledge of nutrition.
Desperate for answers and tired of the mundane complacency I had an wise old man tell me that if juicing worked to help him rid his body from cancer, what would it do for me? Healthy but not at the level of performance I wanted to be in I decided to take a chance and boy am I glad I did.
Generally speaking, vegetables are much better for you than fruit. Not to say that fruit is bad, but it does contain natural fructose which is a form of sugar (through a million times healthier than the high fructose corn syrup you’ll find in many soda drinks these days).
Are you also following a healthy diet? You cannot just be Juicing. Your body needs real foods to kick start your metabolism. If you do not eat enough your body will go into defensive mode and slow your metabolism while storing extra fat because it thinks lean days are ahead.
My results from my doctor were all I needed to motivate me to focus on the Reboot. I’d seen what it had done for Joe, and others, and I hoped it would help me too. At first I thought I would just try doing 3 days. I did get a few headaches and felt tired and hungry on those first few days, but it passed. Then I thought that I might as well go two more days and make it 5. Then 5 became 7, then 10, then 15, 20 and eventually 30 days. I did weekly video recordings of myself to document how I felt, and I could see the difference within just the first 10 days. It was pretty exciting! Of course I encountered people who were skeptical about what I was doing, but as the weight started to drop off, and I no longer felt tired or even terribly hungry, and my clothes became noticeably looser, people started to ask me how I was doing it, and I was able to inspire others to have a go at juicing too.
Is there some reason you cant keep a juice with you? I usually bring more juice than I need to work with me, but instead of keeping it in our communal fridge, I bought a little cooler that I keep in my car. I drink a juice on the way to work, at lunch, and then on the way home from work each day. I have more juice just incase which I have for dinner usually. In between meals if I’m feeling tired I’ll have some black Chai or green tea. If I’m hungry I’ll try and drink more water to tie me over until my next meal. Hope this helps!
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 learn 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!
Just do as much reading as you can Ali, read every here at JOJ that you can and you’ll have a great understanding of what a juice fast is, how it works, and how to do it! Let me know if you have any questions Ali.
Limit the amount of time you spend drinking only liquids. All liquid or juice diets or cleanses are not meant to be followed long-term. Don’t follow plans that recommend consuming only juice or liquids for more than a few days.
When you drink a glass of freshly made vegetable or green juice, you load every cell of your body with detoxifying minerals and required nutrients. You also experience a reduction in cravings, particularly for sweets or processed foods, as you are feeding your body all that it needs.
This gives you reason to stick to juicing for long enough to start noticing the difference in how you feel. It is also an investment in your health and well-being; it can even save some medical expenses in the future.
With pomegranate season upon us (from September to February) it is a great opportunity to add some of this wonderful super fruit to your favorite juicer recipes. I like to combine pomegranate with other juices since pomegranates are a bit pricey, but also because they…
Abby, welcome to JOJ and congrats on 8 days of juicing and 11 pounds lost! Sorry you heard some bad news today. Hop back on your fast and forget you ate anything. It will pass and you’ll be fine. Just don’t make a habit of it. Juice like normal and you’re body will work it’s magic. Hope all is alright Abby, keep me posted and know that I’m always here if you need me.
I’m starting this juicing thing and I wanted to know what kind of juice should I have before a workout? Like I wake up at 0430, drink warm water and lemon..how long should I wait before I drink a juice then workout? After the work out I drink another juice and then around lunch, 2pm, 5:30pm, go for another work out, come home and drink my last drink is this okay? I am trying to get a schedule together so I know what I’m doing everyday and what stuff to purchase so I don’t waste any food.
Sorry Robert, you can’t use a VitaMix or any other blender while on a juice fast. You’ll need a juicer. Please read more on this article about the differences and why you must use a juicer: http://www.justonjuice.com/can-i-use-a-blender-for-juicing/
(NaturalNews) Whether you’re looking to shed a few pounds quickly, or jumpstart a bigger weight loss goal, juicing is a great option. It’s simple math – to lose weight you must burn more calories than you consume. It can be a challenge to get all of the nutrients you need to perform your daily tasks while keeping your caloric intake at a deficit. Adding some nutrient-rich juices and smoothies will go a long way in helping with that goal.

Pour hot water over chunks of fresh fennel, lemon, orange, lime or mint leaves for a cup of natural tea. Fresh teas play an important role in your Quick Weight Loss Plan because they get the digestion going in the morning and calm it at night. Don’t fully boil the water as it can deplete the vitamin content of your drink. Water should be hot, not boiling.
Welcome to JOJ Jolanta! Congrats on getting ready to start your juice fast Wednesday! Don’t be scared, not everybody experiences bad detox symptoms. Most people experience very little as far as bad symptoms. My worst symptom was a slight headache going into day 3 and that was fixed with some ibuprofen. Keep me posted. I wish you all the best! Cheers Jolanta!
I have to disagree here Antony, our bodies were not biologically engineered for thousands of years to eat processed foods, fast foods, and all the other garbage we as a human race eat. Just look at all the food related illness out there and how many people suffer from diabetes or obesity. Our bodies weren’t meant to eat in the capacity and rate that we feed it today.
You can make your juices in the morning and bring them to work with you. I did that for a while and it worked out great! As far as the best juicer just take a look at http://www.justonjuice.com/juicers/ and you’ll see three really good ones all within different price ranges. They all work great and I’ve used each and every one of them.
