Thanks @virginskin1 I'm hoping to start this on the 25th of this month. My skin has been terrible, I've been gaining weight and still have some post-pregnancy weight to loose. Just like lightening before exfoliating, I believe that taking supplements and caring for the skin on the outside is pointless if we are not caring for ourselves on the inside. For me this is going to be a 'reboot' of my body and health. During a Reboot, you’ll commit to consuming only fruit and vegetable juices for a period of time. I want to start with 7 days and then do at least 3 days per month. The goal is to help you break a cycle of an unhealthy lifestyle and simply enhance the quality of your diet by increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables. The results? Excess weight starts to pour off, your belly starts to flatten, your skin glows, you start to think more clearly and overall you are a happier, healthier person. When you consume only juice, your system is flooded with an abundance of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that help your body stay strong and vibrant. My goal is to lose weight, have a flatter stomach, healthy glowing skin (I'm going for that dewy look), and slow the signs of aging (I'm nearly 30). I also have some scars I need to get rid of and from my research Ive found out that allowing your digestive system to rest by consuming only liquids, your body will use that energy to heal other parts of your body. I'm super excited! Any input is appreciated and I will be updating daily with recipes and info etc. xx

These are some of the variations I am going to go with. Make sure your fruits and veg are fresh and try to buy organic. Also wash them well as you don't want to consume and pesticides. Brocolli Apple Carrot Ginger Pineapple Cucumber Ginger Carrot Apple Cucumber Kale Spinach Apple carrot Beet root Cucumber Apple Ginger Spinach Red cabbage Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries Tomato Lettuce Bell pepper Carrot For those who do not have a juicer you can use a blender and then strain the ingredients through a cheesecloth.

I'll be drinking hot water with lemon in the mornings The first 4 days are the hardest. You'll feel like crap as your body is getting rid of toxins so its best to start when you can be at home and away from the temptations of fast food. After 4 days, your appetite and craving will disappear and you will feel more energetic. You should not eat any solids during this 7 Day Juice Fast Plan. It defeats the purpose of it. So stay away from any solids, you’ll be Just On Juice for seven days. I usually have 6-8 glasses of juice a day. My shopping list Apples- different types Cucumber Carrots Pineapple Kale Spinach Broccoli Bell peppers Tomato Lemon Ginger Cinnamon Strawberries Raspberries Blueberries Beetroot Red cabbage Melon Fresh herbs

Yeh, I'm doing my shopping on Saturday too. Its better to juice everything in the morning and just sip throughout the day. Your less likely to crave other foods that way. I got some jugs and those protein cups from the pound shops so I could take my juice with me when I'm out and about.

Nice thread. I'd love to part of this for the detox and I think it would help flatten my tummy more because I've just started my waist training last week. So am in. Would also start by the 25th....gearing up.

Ok. Ladies whilst doing this fast, I'm also going to be taking liposomal vitamin c and liposomal glutathione. Got this from a website: When you take standard form vitamin C, only about 20% of a 1,000-milligram serving of vitamin C will actually make it into the bloodstream, whereas manufactured Liposomal vitamin C has a 93% absorption rate. The more vitamin C infused into the body, the more nourishment it has to draw from. More importantly, liposomal vitamin C easily penetrates easily into the cell walls since it is now a lipid instead of water based. This provides near IV results with an oral dosage, which means you can get high amounts into the bloodstream without the risk of diarrhea which can occur with standard form vitamin C You can make it yourself quite cheaply. I've taken liposomal vitamin C (not consistently) but not glutathione. Just need to find a trusted supplier of glutathione powder.

. :D thanks Mami, I really do need this. Would start sorting out the list of friuts and veggies I can get easily. I heard pumkin leave is great, cleanses the blood, I already drink. Lemon and water. First and last thing everyday. As for the enema, I'd do. A lil more research and see if I can perform it correctly on me. ashmoney2 thanks for the linknd my I have a blender, would start with that.

I'm taking liposomal vit c that I get from Dr Mercola I only take 1000mg. I don't think I could do my own glutathione though !
