The easy way to juice

If you are into juicing or have a desire to start juicing, make sure you get a good juicer. If you have a cheap juicer they are difficult to clean and don’t always juice the fruit and vegetables properly. You can have a lot of waste if you don’t have a strong efficient juicing machine. I bought a cheap juicer when I first decided to start juicing . What a mistake that was.

Invest in a good juicer

It’s important to have a efficiently working juicer, otherwise there will be a lot of hand cutting and chopping and it will make juicing a real chore and there will be a lot of wasted food that did not get juiced.

Juicing should  be done in a juicer, not be in a blender as you would be making a smoothie which means the pulp stays in the juice. It’s recommended not to drink the pulp because you are trying to give your digestive system a chance to rest according to what is called a real juice.

I enjoy juicing. It’s an easy way to get all the fruits and vegetables you need.

Also if any family members do not  enjoy veggies, serving them  a  juice is so much easier and tastes a lot better. And you know they are getting their vitamins and proper nutrition.

You would have to eat 2 to 3 vegetables every meal,at least 2 meals a day, to get the same amount of nutrition from 1 to 2 glasses of a combined fruit and vegetable juice for the whole day.

Make sure to add some non-caloric liquids to your diet each day:

Coffee, black, no sugar

Green tea, black, no sugar

Water:  at least 8 (8oz) glasses every day before and after your juice.

Breville Juicer

This juicer has a 1200 watt motor with 5 speeds from 6,500 to 13,000 rpms. The 3 inch circular feed is a  great size to handle fruit and eliminate lots of chopping.

The second juice disc is good for making fruit purees and smoothies.

The cost of this juicer might seem high, but if you were to buy your juices in a grocery storejuices it would get prohibitive. on average most people have at least 3 to 5 juices a day, if you are into juice fasting and add that up in the course of a month and your juicer could be paid for in a couple of months. Plus the convenience of not having to go to the store when you run out. By making your own, you can pick and choose the kind and flavors of the fruits and vegetables that incorporate.

I love this Breville Juicer and would recommend it to anyone. If you are trying to improve your health and the health of your family members, this would be a great addition to your kitchen.

You can get the Breville Juicer here. I’m sure you will be glad you did.

I hope you liked this review and if you have any questions, I would appreciate your  comments below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Juice Fasting

What is juice fasting?

Juice fasting is just what it says. Drinking  juice in place of a meal is juice fasting.

There are a few  ways to do juice fasting.

Naturally you will lose weight faster by totally juice fasting, but  other options will work also, you just won’t  lose quite as fast.

If you are not familiar with juicing, there are many different approaches to try it.
You can juice fast for all your meals and snacks.

Juice fasting is just juicing and no solid food. You can have up to 6 8 ounce glasses of juice a day.

I find I can only drink 4 and I am full, but you should try to drink at least 5-6 a day.


Different approaches

Or you can juice fast one day a week or 2-3 days a week.

You can juice fast for 2 meals a day and eat vegetables for dinner.
It’s recommended that you eat only fresh vegetables and fruits for your meal to help you with your toxic cleanse.

How you approach juice fasting  depends on what you are comfortable with.



Set a goal for yourself, how long you want to fast or how much weight you want to loss.
A week before you start a fast, you should rid your body of all junk food, coffee, red meat, soda and alcohol.
If you need to lose a large amount of weight, just juicing for a week would be a good way to jump- start your weight loss plan.
This will get your body detoxed and cleansed.

To have the best weight loss always use the 80% – 20% rule.

80% vegetables and 20% fruit in all your juices, all fresh. Don’t use canned, they do not have as much nutritional value.

Also it’s best to make your juices fresh daily and keep unused juice for the day in an airtight container, refrigerated. Click here for a great juicer.breville juicer

Weight loss

If you have a lot of weight to lose, you could lose 12 to 15 pounds in the first week, depending on how well you follow the juicing plan and how much you are overweight. That will give you a boost to your willpower.
When you are finished juice fasting, don’t go back to eating the way you did before.
Start out eating raw, fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat lightly to get you body used to food again.
If you don’t you might get ill or you will gain some of the weight back and reintroduce bad habits all over again.
And all that hard work will be for nothing, I know I did that on my first fast.
As far as a juicer, make sure you purchase one that is easy to clean and operate.
Do not use a blender as that will incorporate fiber making your drink a smoothie.fat lady on scale
You don’t need extra fiber, as it will make you digestive system work harder.


Juicing has many benefits.
It will make your skin clearer, improve your immune system, you will sleep better and you will have more energy.

Also it’s been know to help with some medical conditions.
I hope I answered some of your questions about juicing.
Also a very good documentary by Joe Cross titled “Fat, Sick and Almost Dead” is a very good film about juicing.
It’s available on Netflix and Hulu.
