I juice a bunch of veggies for breakfast every morning, but I'm not sure how many of the vitamins, minerals, calories, protein, etc. are in each glass I'm making. Since the "pulp" is not part of the drink, I'm not sure how to calculate. Any ideas? <BR> <BR> Thanks in advance! :) Sun, 30 Dec 2012 10:52:27 EST NEED TO DETOX? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x51033x51341221 Not sure about anyone else, but detox is in order for me.

It seems that we all did some 'happy' eating of the same type of things, even though we were not all together at the same time - we ate the same.

Pretty much alternate days and skip Sunday. I start with a dinner. I juice 3 meals and eat three healthy meals and so on. I have been doing this for about a week and have felt better (mostly) and have lost 3.5 lbs. My goal is to have a healthier relationship with food, improve my health through juicing and lose weight. I plan to continue this method as long as it works for me. Not sure if it's ok to do this method on this team or not.....?

I have a new blender that I got for green smoothies (also not the best but it tears up the greens better then the juicer did) could I use it instead?

I'm relatively new to juice feasting after stumbling upon the documentary 'Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead' late July. In July and August I did 3 successful shorter juice fasts (3-5 days) with cleanse days before and after. In September I focused on truly cleaning up my eating by following Dr. Fuhrman...

I have a Breville centrifugal juicer and in general I love it. From what I have read there ware several kinds of juicers with the two main ones being centrifugal and masticating. The masticating are slower and more efficient. They are the preferred way to juice greens. <BR> <BR> What I am wondering is: how much am I losing by juicing greens with a centrifugal juicer? Is it worth saving up to buy a masticating juicer to...

I watched the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dieing and I just loved seeing the health benefits to all of it.

Typically people tend to lose about 1 pound a day. <BR> <BR> It is an example of an cleanse used before there were power juicers to extract the juice. I offer this because it is effective, and because it will be very helpful for those on a budget who might not easily afford a juice feast at this time.

I'm currently shopping for a good juicer, a co-worker suggested a Breville since that's what he uses and he's been very satisfied with it. Ok, no problem. Now where to purchase produce in bulk without breaking the bank? I'm open to any and all suggestions. Glad to meet all of you!
