    Well, today is the start of our(me and the SO) 3 day juice cleanse. First time ever doing something like this.Our main goal for this cleanse is to rid our body of harmful toxins, get it ready for eating healthy food and shed some pounds.

    Breakfast:

    - 3 carrots
    - 2 apples
    - 1 tbsp of ginger


    I'm so hungry lol! Can't wait for mid morning juice....but I'd rather have bacon...

    I thought I would take you guys with me on this three day journey.

    Note: just to be clear, this is not a diet. We are not going to go longer than 3 days juicing. This is just a cleanse once the cleanse is over we will be on a strict healthy diet. With maybe one cheat day per week that still abides by the diet.

    Have you consulted with a physician first before starting this? Fad diets can mess you up pretty bad if you have an underlying health problem that you're unaware of.

    Don't be surprised if this diet has unexpected side effects in the bathroom! Good luck. 4 weeks into my weight loss. Lost 10 lbs so far. Just eating less, eating more healthy and exercising every day.

    haven't these things been proved to be nonsense?

    Ive never went on a juice cleanse, but I did find drinking vegetables intersting since I don't usually eat them. Fat, sick and nearly dieing had a great recipe you might want to try

    6 kale "leaves"
    4 cellery stalks
    thumb of fresh ginger
    half a lemon
    a cucumber
    4 apples

    first time I drank it I was expecting something nasty, but it actually tastes pretty awesome.

    Mid morning juice:

    - Cucumber
    - Pears
    - Kale
    - Celery
    - Lemon
    - Mint leaves

    this was yummy, better than the the first one. I have some cravings but not as bad...so far.

    The pear and apple in the last one probably brings out the flavor. Sounds disgusting...
    I wish you luck.

    Nice job!

    We are doing a whole lifestyle change, this cleanse will get us in the right direction. We are also already on a 3 day per week workout plan. We're not going to become vegetarians or vegans but we are going to be more thoughtful of the foods we put in our body.

    Consider adding a bit of Cayanne, and/or a habenero pepper.

    By complete accident, I found THE one best way to flush out your digestive tract. It's pretty simple. You don't have to buy any fruits, vegetables, or protein shakes. All it takes is one simple trick, and you'll be clean as a whistle in no time flat.

    It's called...

    The Intestinal Flu.

    It kinda sucks for the first three or four days, what with being delirious from the high fever, various liquids coming out of both ends of you all of a sudden, and constantly having to flush yourself with water to keep from...you know...dying. But once it's done? Damn, son. You'll have lost about 10 pounds, and your insides are about clean enough to eat a sandwich off of.

    The Intenstinal Flu is easily the single best diet I've ever been on. I recommend it to all my fat ass friends.

    I'd be interested in trying your diet plan, but my darn fatty self has too strong of an immune system. I was really hoping to trim a few pounds for the summer.

    In your situation, what I suggest you do is hit up the local doctors office during the height of flu season, and find an old lady to make out with. In a couple days, you'll be well on your way to starting your new diet.

    Though you need to make sure to check and see what the old lady has before you make out with her. Just FYI. You don't want to end up with rickets or something.

    Yeah, a bit worrying that we haven't heard anything. We'll just have to warn people next time... "Remember phas3 who tried a 3-day Juice Cleanse and never was heard from again?"

    That will work but it is not sustainable. Ask yourself, how often can you do this cleanse? What is your goal? Do you jsut need to cleanse? or lose weight?

    I lost 50 lbs since July 2012. I started wieghing 231lbs and I now weigh 180 lbs. I still eat like crazy but I exercise everyday (Monday to Saturday). I have a heart rate monitor and I calculate how much calories I have burned on an exercise day. I also make sure that I don't surpass the 2000 calorie limit so I will not gain any weight at all.

    I still eat a BigMac!
