I always kind of wondered, in regard to juicing (for a health aspect, not a weight loss one), don't you lose all the fiber in the juicing process? Do you lose some of the vitamins and minerals and antioxidants in the mush that the juicer craps out?

I agree about the need to eat my calories rather than drink them!

Default Juice Fast

My husband and I just watched this documentary, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and I want to do a 7 day juice fast to reboot my body. Has anyone done this? What was your experience?

Default Starting Juice Fast today!

Well I broke down and am going to try this juice fast. I bought a juicer, the Breville BJE510XL, and enough produce for the week. My refrigerator looks like a garden. For the next 7 days, I will eat no solid foods and drink only water and fruit and vegetable juice. I'll be sure to keep you posted on my progress. My starting weight is 288.

Good luck with the juice fast, DH and I have done a few 3 day ones, the first one I gave up caffeine with it was a killer, by the 3rd day the caff withdrawal was over, and it wasn't bad, now when I juice I have one cup of coffee in the a.m.

We are now juicing 2 non-consecutive days during the week. It seems to be working good for us. I haven't been getting sick like alot of people at work, I think the extra vitamins and nutrients help with that.

He watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and then had me watch it, it was good, and at first we didn't juice, just ate more and more veggies, then tried juicing. Fruits and veg are good for you.

best of luck, hang in there

My friend was telling me about a co-worker that lost 47lbs juicing. I really want to try it but I am not really sure where to start. Is it like a fad diet where you immediately gain the weight back when you start eating normally again? That's my biggest concern. If you do try it and love it, pleas let me know!

I've seen this Doc too, and want to try it sometime. Their website is pretty good and has different versions of the plan, including plans that include eating solid food, which is what I might start with. Let us know how it works for you!

I saw the documentary as well and realized I can't go as long as they did. I'm not even going to kid myself. What I came up with is my own eating plan in which I juice 3 days each week. I'm blogging all of my results on my website mydietry.com

Default Juicing help!

I've heard juicing is super good for you due to several health benefits and can assist with weight loss. Is this true? If so, how often should you juice? I also see juicing as an opportunity to get your daily amount of veggies and fruit without actually eating it...I love juice so this is very intriguing. Any insight is greatly appreciated

If you are juicing fruits and vegies, you are eating it. I like juicing because I know I don't get enough fruits and vegies, juicing takes care of that for me.

What I meant was not physically munching down on veggies I really can't eat raw, so I'd drink em. :0) do you have any simple juice recipes?

Fat loss is an equation of energy. Energy is measured in calories. This is a fundamental fact that is often overlooked.

I am completely against juicing on the basis that to lose weight and keep it off you don't need to go on a diet you need to relearn how to eat. Good dietary habits is what you need. Drinking calories is a bad habit, in my opinion.

Eat your veggies. Eat your fruit.

I love to eat fruits and veggies and love to drink the juice we make from fresh fruits and veggies in our juicer as well. If you incorporate juices in a healthy way as part of your lifestyle, not just to quickly lose weight by basically fasting, that isn't healthy.

I believe everything in moderation, as John says, we need to relearn how to eat/live.

I also believe exercise/activity has to be part of the relearning as well. If you just restrict your calorie intake I don't think that's healthy either. You need to find the balance that works for you.

I make juice in the morning (not every single day, but some days))with carrots/cucumber/and whatever fruits we have, I try and keep a low sodium v8 in my desk, for when it seems like it may be too long between meals to tide me over.

best of luck to you

There's a site called sproutpeople I found sprouting/sprouted foods very interesting as well.

Any changes that get more fruits/veggies in your diet should be beneficial.

There's some great vegan/vegetarian sites out there, greenmonster, jazzyvegetarian, christinacooks is a teaching show on pbs that's great to get some ideas.
Not saying to go vegan/vegetarian unless you want to, just saying there's some great ideas you can incorporate into your lifestyle to get more veg in.

best to all

Default Kicking It Up A Notch - Pros and Cons

I'm almost 3 weeks in and down 10 pounds. I only made it to the gym 1 time this week so far and I weigh in on Wednesday. (My weeks run from Wed - Tues).

This week, after re-watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, I want to push myself to try juicing for 10 days. I've been doing some partial juicing over the last 2 weeks and I've seen some results as far as numbers on the scale. I'm also weight training 3-5 days per week and cardio whenever I make it to the gym.

What are some of the pros and cons of an all juice diet for 10 days? I'm about 90% sure the documentary had a bias, so I want to know some additional facts.

To those that just don't want to juice or just don't like it, that's not what I'm looking for. I want hardcore data as to why or why I should or shouldn't do it. Thanks in advance.
