I watched the documentary as well – it was interesting. Does the juicer you bought keep everything or discard the pulp? The problem with a lot of juicers (mostly the cheaper ones) is that they discard the pulp which is where all the fiber is!

I was inspired by that documentary too!  I bought a juicer and HATED it. It threw out more than half the fruits and veggies into the garbage bin AND splattered bits all over the place, and I only got a little juice, AND it was a pain to clean. I returned it and got a NutriBullet instead. It just grinds up whatever you put in there. I’ve used it every day, mostly with fruits, not really doing the “veggie juice as meal” thing that movie did. But it makes a delicious snack when I’m at work, a juice with spinach, some avocado, some berries, and some protein powder. I recommend!

How ironic we just ordered a Nutribullet and I’m hoping it will help me get on track for weight loss b4 the wedding.

I love love LOVE my juicer! I’ve done juicing fasts a few times and it’s a great way to jump start weight loss and is VERY cleansing. I highly recommend a week-long juice fast or else substituting fresh veggie juices for one or two meals a day. You have to make sure your daily calories aren’t dipping TOO low so the idea is to drink large quantities of juice.

@MUAbride2be:  I juice often. I take kale, cucumber, spinach, granny smith apples and grapefruit and drink it everyday. It keeps you full, gives you energy and you will definitely see a difference in your skin, digestion, etc.

My old coworker ONLY juiced and he lost a lot of weight but gained a bunch back once he stopped.

I just add it into my diet

@MUAbride2be:  Well, I don’t want to put a damper on your mood about it…I just want to be honest with you. I think you have to SERIOUSLY want it and be able to afford it. You will also need the patience for the clean up every single time. I bought the easiest possible juicer to clean and it still annoyed me. The cost of all the fruits and veggies needed to make juice for a week was ridiculously high. Not to mention, I only enjoyed one of the combinations – and of course it was one that was entirely fruit – so I couldn’t have lived off of just that one juice combo. All in all, it’s great and wonderful what it has done for some people, but it was completely not for me. I returned my juicer and wasted so many fruits and veggies.

@MUAbride2be:  Start with more fruity combinations and then move to more veggies… like anything else, your body will adjust to it. Eventually you will start craving it! Your body was made to consume and function it’s best when those things are put into it.
