This is cool- I look forward to seeing how it goes for you.  I gained a lot of weight (15 lbs) being vegan, and found detoxing from all the soy products to be torture…

You might also want to consult with a doctor or nutritionist to ensure that your plan will provide you with enough protein.

It is called healthy eating and exercise = weight loss, not some crazy juice diet.

@rosworms:The documentary is called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

 

I saw this as well and know plenty of people who have done a juice diet.  It’s not for me but who am I to say whether it’ll work for someone else or not.  But the point is is that you need a LIFESTYLE change.  Not just I’ll do a juice diet and after 60 days go back to my old eating habits.  Afterwards you have to be ready to keep to a healthy lifestyle!

I’m just not sure how this is physically possible.  I get that there was a documentary about these two people who did it, but it’s not exactly a feasible option for 99% of people. 

I can appreciate and respect that you’re motivated by this, but literally drinking nothing but juice for 60 (sixty!) days after being used to fast food and well, solid food, is tremendously difficult. 

I think you should return your $400 juicer and make an appointment with a nutritionist instead.   You mention that dicipline is the way to wean yourself off of the juice diet, but honestly if you exert dicipline with your regular food choices you should see results anyway.  (I’m not trying to preach, I’m not thin myself- but there is not magical fix for weight loss.  It takes dicipline, exercise and will power… none of which can be fixed by juice).

Whatever happens, good luck to you. And please consult a doctor before you shock your system with this.

Fiance and I just started this detox today! We really like the movie and were inspired by it. Neither one of us would be considered “obese” but we could stand to lose a few.

We weened ourselves off of junk food this past weekend and we are really excited to see how its goes. I am going to be posting a video blog on my blog, I will say that we are only doing it for 10 days though 😀 60 is a little extreme

ETA: We bought our juicer from target for $55 (it was on sale from $80) and it works like a dream!!!!

I think its a bit extreme, the body needs some amount of protein and carbs. If you can do portion control after the juice diet, why cant you just start doing the portion control now and skip the juice only diet

oh, I tried a smoothie diet and it only lasted 1.5 days (I dont have a ton of wilpower though). I cannot imagine doing a juice diet for more than a few days. Talk about feeling weak and sick….

@HoneyBear:  Good luck with this program, but just have to throw out there that you don’t wean yourself off anything over the course of one weekend.  Not eating junk food for 3 days does not mean you’re cured for life 😉  For those of you trying this, please be careful.

Juice Detox programs are actually really common, but most of them aren’t quite so extreme (They’re like, 3 day or 7 day programs)…. the idea behind them is to give your digestive tract a rest, and to give your body time to get out all the gunk that’s built up in your system without adding more to it. 

I’ve actually been considering doing a shorter detox (the 3 day version, probably) because I have been feeling *really* sick since we got back from our honeymoon. All that rich food for a week straight, and then we ate out all this week…. my stomach hates me right now.

WHAT KIND OF JUICER COSTS $400?!?! If I bought a juicer that cost that much I would hope also did the dishes and laundry!
