Subject: Jumpstart story from an South African

Hi Brendan

My name is Ilse Edwards and I am turning 50 next year March live in Rustenburg in the North West Province of South Africa.

I would love to tell you my story regarding the Jumpstart program.

As a widower I used to weigh round about 67 - 69 kg a few years ago then I met my wonderful husband Vernon in 2009 and we got married in December 2010. My husband loves to spoil and every day when I got home from work delicious food would already be prepared aswell as a little sweet thing for afterwards. In the three years I gained weight and on Sunday 18 August 2013 I weighed myself and with a shock saw I weighed 80 kg.

Just there and then I decided I have tried to loose weight but with little success. I decided to go and buy the Jumpstart program at GAME and bought all the ingredients that was in season luckily except watermelon.

I started my Jumpstart on Monday morning:

The first few days my head was very sore aswell as my kidneys. My stomach did not work during the seven days normal but I never felt bloated. On day 5 my stomach slightly started to work (excuss the directness- but it is your program :) ) On day 7 it was the most difficult day for me - I could barely get the last drink in but I did. My mind was a little fuzzy. But I sticked through the seven days and when I climbed on the scale on the morning after the 7 days passed I lost 7.5 Kg. I ate the next day a chicken salad. My stomach performed the whole night and early morning. I think all the toxins inside came out and when I weighed myself again this morning I nearly lost 9 Kg.
Currently I weigh 71,5 Kg > My middle came from 89 cm to 85 cm and my hips from 114 cm to 104,5 cm.
My skin feels great and my hair seems not to get so greasy that easy. I used to wash my hair every single day.

I am 1.68 cm

Well Brendan, thank you. I really hope I will keep this weight if I do not go overboard and still be able to loose weight easily

For now I am finished with the strict seven day diet but will do one day in a week until I get to my previous weight again of at least 69. It is just about
3 kg.

I am so happy with myself

Another Success On The Jumpstart 7 Day Weight Loss Program


Good Morning.

I’m sending this mail from South Africa, to let you know I tried your programme for 7 days(1st – 7th December 2011),and was amazed at the results.

I was skeptical about your programme as I have never fasted in my whole life (I am 34years old), and was worried that I would feel weak, and not be able to perform at work…instead I felt great and full the whole time. Some nights I couldn’t even finish my juices as I was so full. I did 2 days juices a time and froze them for convenience.

I started the programme at 73.1 kg as my weight, and by end of the programme I weighed 67.6 kg (total loss of 5.5 kg in 7 days), my body looks trimmer and my clothes fit better. All my friends and colleagues want to try yo

Thank you… I lost 18 lbs


Dear Brendan,

I’m a 36yo single mother from the Philippines. This is actually the second time I did your 7Day diet. The first one was 3 years ago and it was very successful, however I was unable to document and give feedback about the results. Which is why this time I made sure that I did.

During the last 2 years I gained a lot of weight because of irresponsible eating and no exercise. My clothes do not fit anymore, I was starting to have cramps and shortness of breath. I reached 200 lbs which was close to my pregnancy weight. I literally looked like I was pregnant again :(. Last March 8 I went to Boracay one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, however, I regret that I din’t enjoy it much. I looked terrible in my swimsuit not to mention I feel bad looking at my photos.

I knew that your diet was one of the best solutions however I kept putting it off. I tried other means. For a month I started exercising daily and managing my diet a unfortunately, I’m not getting the results I wanted. That’s why I finally decided to get your book and my juicer from storage and made a commitment to myself to go through the 7 day plan strictly

After 7 days….I lost 18lbs. I now fit in my old clothes again, some even gotten loose. I feel younger and lighter and can now wear my 3inch heels again. I know I still have around 30lbs to go however the change that I had has made me even more excited and positive about loosing all the excess weigh.

Your invention has been a blessing to a lot of people and I know that it will continue to bless a lot more. For this I am grateful.

More success to you Brendan!

Best regards,

Hi Brendan. I’m totally impressed.


Hi Brendan. I started the jumpstart diet on Saturday and I must say I am totally impressed. I don’t feel hungry at all and have loads of energy. I have lost 2kg (last night) and hoping to loose a lot more. I totally understand how you say in your book that once the diet is completed what you do to keep the weight off is up to you. I have finally realized that what you eat is what you get out. I must say I cannot stand cucumber but i’m drinking it. I also instead of juicing the herbs I cut them into very small pieces cause feel that way I get to actually drink them. I have to also admit that I am craving “Chewing” not food but the actual chewing of the food, but I am sure I will get through it. I will mail you once I have completed on Sat. Thanks once again.

I lost 7 kgs and never felt better…


comments: Hello Brendan, I have to say thank you so much for designing this programme. I completed my 7 days yesterday and iv lost 7 kg, i have never felt better. You removed 3 years of peanut butter and white bread, along with pregnancy fat in just one week. You also released a new energy from day 1. I was never hungry, had no cravings. In fact, i tried to take a little bite of chocolate today and the smell of caffeine put me off completely. :) The best part is that i can feel my stomach muscles when i pull it tight.
They were non existant before! Miracle, thank you thank you thank you. Iv asked God to bestow his richest blessings upon you. Please tell me which juice is best to drink to maintain my weight, the grapefruit, cabbage or lettuce? My favourites are peachy keen, beetle juice and cappise :)

Kind Regards

I lost 4 kgs in the right places…


Thank you so much for your 7 day weight loss program. I have lost 4 kgs in the right places ie. the stomach and waist. I feel so good as everyone is admiring me and also want to follow your program. My clothes that were tight are now fitting me .The program is not hard, you just have to make your mind up. After the program you become very conscious of how you eat, exercise and look.

Thanks again.

Your diet has been the best thing that has ever happened to me.


Hi Brendan

Your diet has been the best thing that has ever happened to me, there are no words to describe how i feel about it. I was 110kg on day 1 and by the 5th morning i just had to check, I lost 5.5kg and that was only in 4 days starting with the 5th, it is absolutely amazing!!!

I just have one question, is it at all possible for me to mix all my juices together and drink it out of one container only? Will it do the same. The problem is, i am on the road most of the time and finding fresh fruit & veg is quite hard and i also don’t always have a kitchen available in the rooms i stay in. So i was wondering if i can make them a week in advance, but instead of separate bottles, all in one.

If you can please get back to me, i would greatly appreciate it.

Kindest regards

I lost an unbelievable 8.4kg in only 7 days


Dear Brendan,

Just to let you know…

I am 35 years of age (male), was born in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape, South Africa… am now working in Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa)…

I weighed myself on the evening of 31 October 2009, and scaled in at 123,9kg, before I started the 7-day juice diet. I must admit that there were some of the juices which didn’t taste nice to me, but nevertheless I committed myself to follow your 7-day programme strictly. After the fifth day results were visible, when my wife got excited and told me: “Wow, I am noticing a huge difference… !

When I got on to the scale yesterday morning (Sunday, 8 November 2009), I got the shock of my life. I expected to lose about 3,5kg – 5kg for my effort… In fact, I lost 8,4kg (my new weight 115,5kg) … Actually, I am still in shock. It was well worth it, as I only paid R350 for the fruit and vegetables consumed during the week… Psychologically, it has helped me to do away with my unhealthy eating habits.

I really think that you programme is definitely the best in the world. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t think :thank you” is good enough to thank you…

Believe it or not – since I have not once had any kidney stones or any infections!!


Hi Brendan!

Hope you are well and still juicing!!

My husband bought me the Jump Start a while ago!

I am prone to kidney stones and had my first kidney operation at the age of 10.

All the tubes and valves from my kidneys to my bladder was so damaged due to all the kidney stones that the doctors had to reconstruct and replace them with Teflon.

In 2006 I almost lost my baby at 30 weeks pregnant due to kidney stones!

I have honestly been fighting a loosing battle with the constant pain and suffering and frequent operations.

My last kidney operation was in October 2008 and afterwards my husband saw the infomercial of the 7 day Jump Start programme.

He bought me the Juicer and we both went on the programme!

Believe it or not – since I have not once had any kidney stones or any infections!!

I also had my second baby in February 2010 and the pregnancy went smooth sailing with no kidney trouble!!

I never used the juicer for weight issues but for every day health – not that I am complaining to loose a few kilos now and again!!

Thank you for this amazing product it truly is life changing!!

I would like to do the 7day programme again but am struggling to find watermelon in season.

Is there something I can substitute it with that will still have the same effect??

Please advise!

Best regards
