I do whole fruit and/or vege smoothies and sometimes add protein to that, but I don't do it to lose weight. I just like it.
Juicing per se (where the fiber is removed) is high in calories for me and spikes my insulin and I miss out on much of the nutrition by doing that.
Moving in new directions.

No, I eat *whole* foods. I'd rather not strip the fiber from my foods and then injest an obscene amount of carbs and cause crazy insulin spikes. I prefer a balanced meal that includes carbs, healthy fat and protein.
I lost 58 lbs because I counted *calories*. That's why you lose weight. In order to prevent eating too many calories I chose foods that help with satiety; whole, clean foods and fiber, healthy fats and lean protein.
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I really want to try juicing, but every time I come close, I feel like eating is more satisfying than drinking.....maybe all in time the stars will line up....!

I lost 15 lbs by mainly juicing and eating raw foods. It does get hard to keep up though. I used it mostly as a cleanse and since then I feel like the rest of the weight I have to lose is not being as stubborn. I feel like it helped my metabolism which was basically stuck at a certain point.

No because I don't like juice that much
Eat what you like and if someone comments, eat them too

Why on earth would you want the insulin spikes that come with drinking fruit juice that has no fiber? Whole fruits and veggies and/or smoothies are how I've dropped the weight.

Is anyone combining Juicing with their weight loss efforts? I have a good juicer, plenty of vegetables and wheat grass growing supplies. I just can't settle on a pattern, and would like to know what others are doing.
