juice haters beware

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

have I mentioned I want to start juicing? yeah, just a little bit I know. I've been researching all day... looking up tips and tricks and recipes, watching youtube videos and vlogs. i'm totally inspired but I've also come across a lot of negativity too which is a little disheartening. why do people have to hate!?
I understand that people who eat right and exercise and it takes them months or years to get fit and healthy worked really really hard to get to that point (hey that's the journey i'm on now) and I can see how one such person might look at a juice cleanse as a quick fix gimmick for some weight loss. I can see how other people might look at it like you are delving into some kind of eating disorder or somehow starving yourself. but it's really not that extreme folks.
whether or not I completely switch to total juicing for a little bit (without restricting calories of course) or just add green juices to my daily intake I think that adding micronutrients is NEVER a bad thing. I want to detoxify my body because i'm already suffering from severe lack of sunshine, so if i can boost my immune system and get rid of the headaches i seem to be getting way too frequently than i'm in. weight loss, sure why not... but nutrients is what i'm aiming for thank you very much. and that's how i feel about juice and juice haters. done and dusted.

    This always happens to me. I started with your most recent recipe blog, but if I had started at the beginning of your juice journey, I wouldn't have had to ask so many questions. emoticon

    I did green smoothies for awhile and I loved them. They gave me energy and allowed me to get in extra veggies. I wish I had a vitamix or a juicer. Instead I have a Ninja which works well but left me with lots of pulp. Anyway, do what works for you! Do not listen to the negative stuff some people throw out there. There is so much positive info out there about juicing and it works so well for so many people. Good luck to you with it! Cant wait to hear updates/see results. :)

    I was just on Dr oz's page looking at his 3 day detox and cleanse. He has a pre printed grocery list and says it will be around 16 dollars a day. I found it interesting. If that's what you need to do for you then who is anybody to say if they have not walked in your shoes ? Good luck to you and I hope that it helps your headaches ! Keep us posted and let us know how it turns out !
