I am so excited to share that in only 5 days I have lost 14 pounds by drinking freshly made fruit and vegetable juice! The first few days are kind of hard, but I really feel that this is the best way to lose weight when you have quite a bit to lose. This is because you lose weight FAST, you heal your body and metabolism, you learn why you are eating in the first place, learn to eat when you are hungry and not for other reasons, I have read that your extra skin can be healed, or you simply don't get much if any when losing weight this healthy way! There are many many other reasons, too!

Sure, its hard, I love food! But losing weight is hard no matter HOW you do it, so why not take a certain period of time and drink healthy juice full of nutrients to get you back on track?

If you have netflix I recommend watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I had wanted to do a juice fast before but watching that documentary really inspired me!

IS the netflix video on juice fasting?

AWESOME JOB! Just don't keep up that rapid rate too long... not healthy.

I did the reboot, that's what kickstarted my weight loss! Now I drink juice for breakfast everyday. It's definitely a great way to reboot your system, get all the micronutrients in and feel great. I just can't do it all the time like Joe and Phil did. Great job though, it really has changed my life and the way I look at food.

I would say let us know how it goes once you've been eating food for a few weeks again...many times temporary changes result in temporary loss, hopefully this isn't the case for you, congrats on the loss flowerforyou

I'm no doctor or any sort of health professional but this sounds like unhealthy and unsustainable weight loss to me. When you go back to regular eating patterns, I assume one would put the weight back on. I hope you've consulted your doctor ahead of time. :) Good luck.

Hmm, doesn't sound healthy. Most fasts are for a day to 3, no more. Your body needs more than just 'juice'. Especially if you are exercsing, your body needs fuel.

I'm not a professional but I say healthy foods, water and exercise will get you where you wanna be. It may be slow, but there's a reason it takes time to lose weight. Besides, you didn't gain it overnight, don't expect it to go away overnight either.

But to each their own. indifferent

I don't really find this healthy.. You should learn to eat healthy. I mean eventually you're going to eat food, and since you've been depriving your body from it i'm afraid it's going to want it more..

Losing weight is about watching your calorie intake and exercising. THIS IS THE RIGHT WAY.
So yes losing weight is hard, but this is the way you do it!

Well done. Jason Vale - Juicemaster - is an advocate of juicing. Im heading to one of his 7lbs in 7 days retreats soon and Im hoping to lose 14lbs in one week too! Its a detox, I agree it reboots your whole system but I doubt you will be reverting to old habits straight after losing that amount of weight, you will be really motivated. Juicing as part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle is a great way to get your body the goodness it needs to regenerate. Read about Jason Vale and you will soon be converted :). Well done and stay motivated x

I can understand how people will try 'stuff' to lose weight and I agree, once the weight is off it's best to keep it off eating the right things and exercising but weight off is better than weight on!

Should have added... Well done for the loss, hope it keeps off!

For everybody who said it is not healthy: IT IS :)
The fresh juice fasting is done for a short period of time . Think of a very heavy cleaning if you like , but you are doing it to your body.A long period of time , doing the fasting ,can be dangerous but replacing one meal with fresh juice does miracles to one's body.
Congrats! Was too hard for me.

Absolutely! You don't have to be a doctor or health professional to realise the total insanity of this. It's not healthy in the slightest, and is actually very dangerous. 14 pounds in 5 days equates to 2.8 pounds lost per day. Hopefully, most of this weight was lost from intestinal matter breaking free and being eliminated, but even if that's the case it's simply not safe to do something like this. There are plenty of ways to "cleanse" the intestines without undertaking a completely ludicrous technique.

You made a 49,000 calories deficit in 5 days?

Water weight ftw. :)

Wow the sugar intake must be insane. Are you sure you are not losing water and muscle. You might end up fatter then when you started. Hope fully it will last.

Juicing is extremely healthy, but it doesn't have to be all or nothing. It's a good thing to incorporate into a healthy diet. It doesn't hurt to fast once in a while, but not as a long-term solution. Juicing has to be a steady thing. I juice a few times a week- great way to get a boatload of vitamins and minerals without eating a ton of food. :}

I did the same fast a year ago and I lost quite a bit of weight in 2 weeks. I never gained anything back, until a few months later when I was pregnant with my 3rd child. :) I also had my healthiest pregnancy and wasn't sick at all, unlike my previous pregnancy just a year before when I was sick the entire time. The fasting may not have had anything to do with it but I know I was healthier after it!

I would strongly recommend watching Forks Over Knives for those posting who believe eating mostly fruit and vegetables is unhealthy.:)

I thought the point of losing weight was to lose FAT and keep MUSCLE? And find a way to do it sustainably?

Eating mostly fruit and vegetable is not unhealthy. It was your method that was unhealthy. If you get lasting results, and don't get sick and end up hospitalised, that's great. However, this was basically like playing roulette, and the majority of people who would do this would likely suffer negative consequences. Advocating such techniques to a community of people who crave quick fixes is irresponsible and reckless.

If you really think you can drink all your meals for the rest of your life, enjoy that I guess, it's all about sustainability. Most times it's better to just eat the actual fruit or vegetable than to juice it. I can agree that green smoothies or having one juice smoothie in a day is a fine way to get a dose of nutrients, but to drink nothing but that is simply not sustainable. That's really all my point is.

Nobody is arguing that eating only fruits and vegetables is unhealthy. I'm a vegetarian and think that all people should eat is fruits and veggies. Juicing, where you only eat the juice of said fruits is what sounds unhealthy as you're nto eating anything sustainable.

Here's what the Mayo Clinic has to say via Wikipedia: "The Mayo Clinic has responded to several of these claims by noting that the effects of drinking juice can be helpful, benign, or, at worst, counter-productive (depending on a person's motivation). Its main conclusion is that there is no scientifically-based advantage of juicing over simply consuming a fruit or vegetable in its original form and by showing that, at best, these claims are derived from research based on eating fruits and vegetables, not drinking them. The Mayo Clinic (and some juicing proponents such as Joe Cross) advise potential "juicers" to speak with their primary medical providers before beginning any type of short or long term juicing program."

^^^THIS^^^

I tried it once. Lasted 6 days. Yes, I lost weight, but I just put it right back on when I started eating regular food again & it was even healthy food! Quick weight loss is bad for you, at least in my opinion. This isn't supposed to be about the latest diet, it is supposed to be a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. Any other way of thinking & your probably doomed to fail. I think I've tried every "diet" that there is at one time or another... and I failed. Now eating healthy & exercising a bit is finally what is working!!!
