Failing that, please contact: email@example.com for further assistance.
How should I prepare for the Big Juice Challenge?
For as many days as you can before the juice diet commences try to cut down on caffeine, alcohol, refined sugars, processed carbohydrates and other unhealthy foods. Drink plenty of water and increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. This will prepare your body for the juices and reduce the severity of any of the less pleasant symptoms you may experience in the first few days due to withdrawal from these foods.
I cannot source the supplements that are listed as part of the plan, will this affect my results?
Supplements are included in the plan as an additional nutritional boost. However, if you are not able to source a specific supplement, don’t worry, you will still experience great results.

Do I need to buy anything to complete the Big Juice Challenge?
The recipe videos, coaching videos and shopping list are all 100% FREE! However, you will need to source independently a juicer, blender, the produce and any supplements required (these are optional).
I only have a blender, can I use this for the Big Juice Challenge?
You need a blender and a juicer to complete the Big Juice Challenge, as Jason’s plans are not designed to be made in a blender.

Recipes & Juices
I don’t have time to juice four times a day - can I freeze them?
Yes, you can! In fact, when you freeze juice you lose very little of the nutrient content. Once you’ve made your juices pop them into BPA-free water bottles (remembering to leave space at the top for expansion) and pop in the freezer. You can then take out a days worth of juices the night before and store them in the fridge for the next day. It’s best to remove each juice from the fridge at least an hour before you want to drink it to ensure its fully defrosted. Use within one month.
What about all the sugar? Isn’t it bad for you?
Sugar is finally receiving the bad press it deserves. Unfortunately, however, fruit sugar is being tarnished with the same brush as white, refined sugar. The sugars are simply not the same, and if you use your common sense, you will appreciate this. Science may say otherwise, but if all sugars were the same, then people could switch chocolate for an apple without any problems.
Think about yourself or someone you know who is a real sugar head – who must eat cakes, biscuits, pastries, sweets or chocolate. If you offered them an apple or a piece of pineapple instead, they would soon tell you where to go! ‘Live’ fruit and vegetable sugars are not the same as white, refined sugars and do not cause the same harm. However, there’s no need to worry in any case, as all the recipes are predominantly vegetable-based, with apple, pear or pineapple added to make sure the juices and smoothies taste good – pure vegetable juice is an acquired taste! The thickies also have either avocado or banana, and the additional insoluble fibre helps to slow down the absorption of sugars into the bloodstream.
You may be interested to know that, when cooked apple juice and live apple juice were tested for their G.I. or Glycemic Index rating (G.I. is a number associated with each type of food that indicates the food’s effect on a person’s blood sugar levels), the cooked juice came out as having a high G.I., whereas the ‘live’ freshly extracted apple juice had a low G.I. NOTE: Please always consult with your GP if you suffer from diabetes before embarking on a juice only diet.
I have signed up to the challenge but am receiving the daily recipe videos?
Please check that they haven’t accidentally gone into your spam/junk folder, before emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
The recipes videos will not load, what can I do?
Due to the high quality of the videos, they may take a little while to load. If your internet connection is slow you will need to allow for the video to buffer or wait until you have a better connection.
If your connection speed is good and you’re still having problems you can also try the following:
– Try using an alternative web browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.)
– Try clearing the cache of your device (you can Google specific instructions on how to do this for your device) and this should resolve the issue.
I want to view a previous day's recipe but the link is no longer working?
The recipe links are only available for 36 hours. If you require unlimited access to the recipes, you may want to consider purchasing the Super Juice Me! book, Plan DVD or app.

Recipes & Juices Cont…
Are the recipes for one person?
Yes! If you are making for more than one person, simply multiply the recipes quantities by the number of people.
Can I change the times that I have my juices?
The times we suggest for the juices are a guideline only and can be adapted to fit into your own daily routine. We would recommend not leaving longer than 3 hours in between juices, to ensure your blood sugar levels stay stable and you do not get hungry.
I don’t like/or cannot source a certain ingredient. What can I do?
Don’t become overly worried if you cannot source a particular ingredient. Trust your judgement and simply supplement the ingredient for a similar item, for example instead of cucumber you can use courgette or celery. We have a list of alternative ingredients included in our Juicy FAQs document, which you can download here.
I don’t want all the juices each day, can I leave one out?
We recommend that you have all your juices, however it’s important to listen to your body and not to force yourself to have on. Leaving out the occasional juice would be acceptable.
Health & Wellbeing
I have a specific health condition, will the challenge be ok for me?
We are unable to advise about specific health conditions and we advise you speak to a doctor for further advice. Alternatively you can contact our Natural Juice Therapy Manager Mairi Taylor Tel: +44 (0)345 130 28 29 (op. 3) Email: email@example.com
I have a headache and feel very tired, is this normal?
These are both typical symptoms of ‘withdrawal’ and generally occur within the first 72 hours and they will pass. However if any symptoms persist then, please contact your doctor as they may be unrelated to the challenge.
I have just weighed myself and I have not lost any weight, help!
We recommend that you don’t weighing yourself during a challenge, simply because it makes the focus all about weight loss and we can fixate on the numbers, rather than focusing on how we are feeling. Its is also worth bearing in mind that some people experience a ‘lag time’ in terms of weight loss and will experience weight loss a few days after completing a plan.
If you have any queries please refer to our Juicy FAQs, which you can download for FREE here.
