Thats correct, just be careful and not add a lot of fruit.

Starting with kale, spinach , 2 green apples, 1 pear, 1 lemon and some ginger. Not really following any recipes just tossing in the blender and going from there lol.
2-3 months? WOW good luck man. I dont think I could have done another month with just straight juice. After that month, I was ready to eat but also scared to eat. I didnt want to go back to my old habits.
Keep us posted on your journey.

Simply because, as i mentioned before, started 1 juice a day, then went to 2 a day and 1 meal (breakfast) for a week
My cravings are FINALLY OVER...like some of you, i was craving foods i dont ever eat, such as fast food, dont remember the last time i had a burger from in-n-out, carls jr, ect.. and thats what i was craving, even KFC
anyways, I've been going for a walk, and workout M-W-F...I've been losing about 3 pounds a day
I believe my last day might be wednesday, i'm not necessarily doing this for weight loss, though its an excellent perk for me..
I'm doing this just to simply reboot, and be prepared for my wildland firefighting test coming up in a week...
Keep up the work guys, stick to it, believe me, cravings WILL go away
Thats weird. During my juicing, I was craving foods like veggies, turkey meat and veggie soups. But then again, I was eating all the unhealthy stuff before I began juicing. Good luck on your firefighting test.

Making them before hand is not a bad idea. I make them the night before because I got to deal with the kids in the AM.
Remember, juices can last up to 72 hours in the fridge. Just make sure you seal them up.

Question to those doing it now: How many ounces of juice do you consume a day? I'm trying to stay above 60 ounces but I'm not sure what the everyday amount should be. Thx
So are you gonna stop eating and just juice? Or just replacing meals with juices?
That sleep feels great, dont it? I cant remember the last time I slept this good. The great thing about it is that I dont wake up tired in the AM. I love it.
I drink 12-15 ounces a juice. I cant handle more than that. And drinking a lot of water through out the day is why I cant add anymore ounces of juice.

anyways, just be sure you fill the bottle all the way to the top as much as you can
Yes he does mention that.
As far as recipes goes, there is no right or wrong recipes. All these recipes posted are from ones creations. You can make your own just make sure you dont add a lot of sugars (unless youre working out a lot, then its ok). The more greens, the better for you.
Also, remember to drink an ORANGE or RED colored drink in the AM
and GREEN colored juices for lunch and dinner.
Keep up the good work guys. WHO GOING TO POST PICS FIRST?
