SO, yesterday at work a tall man came through my line. He had a TON of fresh vegetables, including a 25-pound bag of carrots. I asked if he was juicing, and he replied "Yes. Over the past year I have lost 155 pounds through juicing."
I was amazed. I knew juicing could drop weight fast, but not THAT fast. I made we wonder if I should start juicing, though on a smaller scale. The problem is that I have a lot of allergies to raw fresh fruits and vegetables. It's called Oral Allergy Syndrome and it's a pain in my ass if I want to lose weight. I can't eat fresh carrots, apples, celery, cherries, peaches, plums, apricots, pears, etc. But if I cook or process them, it's fine. I would give up a year of my life to eat some carrots with hummus!
I'm thinking about finding a juicer on craigslist and trying things out. I know your taste buds and cells change every few years, so maybe some of those things I'm not allergic to anymore. Either way, I want to at least try juicing. I was successful at work with a combination of beet, cucumber, celery, ginger and lemon. It wasn't too bad. Hopefully I can figure something out to aid in my losing weight.

*Has anyone tried juicing....with success??*

    I have dreamed of being able to juice! I burned my blender up making hummus so I don't have that.. plus I wonder if I would have the will power to not actually crunch and munch on something. I really would like to give it a shot though. Esp. when trying to get over humps or out of binge stages. :/

    Hmmmm! You think juicing would make them safe for you? I hope so!

    Life without raw carrots would be pretty hard for me... I luv 'em!
