It's okay to juice your own apples. But the thing is, you get more nutrients from eating the whole apple rather than drinking the juice from that apple. Juicing it removes some of the pulp and hull and what not. The part that gets removed when you juice it has the most vitamins. So, while it is okay to have the juice from time to time, the goal should be to routinely have the whole fruit.

I can only echo what AZLADY has said. Dr. McDougall's website is a great place to start:

www.drmcdougall.com/

I don't follow his diet - but I am a vegan, so I often look for recipes in his newsletters.

Welcome! We're really glad you've joined us!

I'm on my way to bed. Until I can answer in more detail, you might see whether your library has any books by John McDougall, M.D., or Neal Barnard, or by The Cancer Project. (They also offer free classes throughout the country.)

The basics:
. Eat things as close to the way they grew as possible. Brown rice, whole wheat pita, apples instead of juice.
. no animal products. There are significant medical reasons for this.
. no added fat. No, not even olive oil.

That's it. Simple but not easy. (I have a nagging feeling I'm forgetting something.)

Many people claim this is far too radical. I think it's much more conservative than having people cut my chest open, stop my heart and damage my brain, or taking drugs for the next 25 years that damage my liver, arteries, kidneys and brain, or resigning myself to blindness, gangrene and kidney failure. (I'm a fourth generation diabetic.)
