Weighed in at 271(was at 212 last summer) and I plan on taking this one week at a time but i wanna do the entire two months!! Will be working out as well so we shall see how this goes....wish me luck fellas!
I know youve probably already heard this, but you need to stay away from those naked juices. Juices that you make at home last about 72 hours in your fridge. Naked juices last longer than that and the reason is because they have chemicals in them to help their shelf life. Once you start with your juicing, you'll be able to taste the freshness of your juices compared to naked juice. And I hope you dont go back to naked juices after.
Good luck with your juicing. 60 days is a long time. I said I wanted to do 60 also but after 2 weeks, I knew that 30 days was my limit. Its very difficult to do but if you have the will power then more power to ya.
If you already started your juicing, remember to drink a lot of water and try to stay away from tv because of the commercials. When you get cravings, try to distract your self by reading, walking, exercising etc.
Make sure you keep your girl on check and your girl keeps you on check. Good luck to both of you.

I did 30 days straight. I began eating very light after day 30. I ate fruit, veggies, nuts and salad with homemade dressing, almost like a vegan. I didnt eat any meats until 3 days later (I ate fish and shrimp) and got sick. Then I cut back on all meats for a bit. Definitely gave up anything that contains FLOUR in it and unhealthy CARBS. And the serving size was very small, something a toddler would eat. I kept juicing though, actually i havent stopped juicing since I began. Ive probably skipped a day or two but definitely got back on.
So when youre done with your 30 days, dont celebrate and treat yourself to a Burger or a Steak, try going vegan instead (just for a bit). Then you can start eating the meats BUT LEAN MEATS ONLY. Nothing with fat and grease in it.
Hope this info helps, and good luck to you.

After Juicing I cut out all the bad crap I used to eat. Some people think I still eat very little and should eat more. I think Im fine and this is what I eat.
I drink a juice that contains 2 Oranges, 4 Carrots, a thumb size piece of Ginger, 1 Green apple.
Along with that I eat
An Apple cut into 8 pieces
2 Tsp of Natural peanut butter. The ingredients in the peanut butter are Nuts and 1% of Salt, thats it.
1 piece of WHOLE GRAIN toast
1 piece of chicken breast
Mixed grilled veggies that contains zucchini, bell peppers and broccoli.
Rotisserie chicken with Salad
Turkey meat patties with veggies
I drink a juice that contains Kale, Spinach, Celery, Thumb size of Ginger, 2 green apples and 3 Cucumbers.
Sometimes I eat dinner with the fam like Turkey patties with veggies or chicken and veggies. I try not to eat at night because I hate eating late.
Through out the day Im drinking a lot of water too......
I know Im supposed to be eating six meals but that crap is hard to do. Let me know what you guys think.

Kind of upset, bought a Ninja from amazon and they STILL haven't shipped yet.
could have picked it up in person for $18 cheaper!
But Ninja is a blender right? or a juicer?
