Did you Reboot to lose weight? Yes

How did you learn about Reboot with Joe?
From my coworkers, I watched the movie on Netflix .

What inspired you to do a Reboot?
I work in a hospital with a lot of sick patients with uncontrolled diabetes. They have health problems from chronic kidney disease, ulcers on their lower limbs that don’t heal, amputated legs. I am diabetic and watching these patients scared me. I didn’t want to end up like them. I was also tired of being overweight.

How did the experience go for you?
The first week was the hardest. I felt weak, tired, hungry and my stomach growled all the time. Eventually I got used to drinking my juices and now I’m feeling great.

How much weight did you lose (even if that wasn’t your goal!)?
So far I’ve lost 31 lbs and I am still juicing. I plan to lose more weight.

Did you have any notable health or physical improvements?
My sugars were in the 180’s in the morning taking 2 pills in the evening and now my sugars are in the 90’s taking 1 pill in the evenings. I eventually want to completely stop my diabetes medication by losing more weight.

What was the toughest part about the Reboot experience?
Every time my family ate my favorite foods around me I had to stay strong and only drink my juice. Weekends are very hard as well. My kids love to eat out on the weekends.

What habits have you maintained and kept a part of your everyday life?
I am still juicing. There are days I have taken breaks from juicing like the weekends but I always juice for dinner.

What is your Lasting Impression of the Reboot experience?
I think it’s the best and healthiest way to lose weight and be healthy.
