Day 1

All went really well for the 1st day of this 60 day juice fast. I ended up drinking 3 litres (100 fl oz) of juice in total as I started to feel a little hunger around late afternoon. I did take on more fruit juice than I normally would, but this really isn’t a problem in the first day or two of fasting.


  • 1 litre Carrot & Apple
  • 0.5 litre My Mean Green
  • 1.5 litre Orange & Grapefruit

Listed in the order consumed, juices were drunk over 6 x 500ml (17 fl oz) portions.


I didn’t feel any effects today, other than being a little emotional towards the end of the evening – I put this down to being generally overtired.


I was out as soon as my head touched the pillow just prior to 10pm. I slept straight through until 7am (9 hours total)

Energy level

10/10 (With 10 being my normal state)

To Follow

I will most probably make a post for each day for the first week detailing detox effects, sleep patterns and energy levels. I will then post every 10 days with my weight and measurement results and every 2 – 3 days in between to update on how the fast is going.


If you haven’t already done so, do please read my 60 Day Juice Fast Introduction post, for more information on my plan and goals.

    I am starting my 60 day juice fast when I wake up. I went out and bought all my fruits and veggies and even tried a recipe that turned out pretty good. I am starting at 260 pounds…my goal is to lose over 45 in these 60 days. I need a support group tho BC I never follow thru with dieting or exercise. Do you know of any juice fast support groups I can join? Or would you be interested in starting one with me?

      Hi Jess, congratulations on starting your juice fast! I was near your weight at 266 when I first started juice fasting :)

      In the coming months I do intend to open a support forum for juice fasters if there is enough interest. In the mean time there is a small support forum over at the Joe Cross website: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/forums/

      I hope that helps and best of luck with your fast!

    Today is day one of my 60 day juice fast. I am very excited. I saw Joe Cross’ movie and it really changed my way of thinking. I have tried many diets and have put weight back on. I am now at 350.6 lbs and need to change my life. I was an RN with lousy eating habits cause a lot of times I would go my whole shift with no breaks, it has taken its toll on me. I am no longer working cause I have hurt my back one to many times. I have herniate L3-4, compression fracture of my T12, and now 2 slipped disks in my neck. I need for this to work and get me back down to my before my hysterectomy weight of 145-150lbs.

    I’m tired and don’t feel good, and I am in a new relationship who he is very active and I miss hiking. So this is for me to feel better and so that I can hike again. I love to take pictures but unable to do much hiking. I miss that. Thank you for your story. I will keep you posted on my progress.

    I am drinking 5 juices a day at 500 ml, and working on getting 2.5L of water down. That will be the hardest part for me.
