Juicing - Jumping on the Bandwagon
I'm jumping on the bandwagon-sort of. You see we bought a juicer yesterday. There have been people in the YouTube weight loss community that have gotten huge weight losses by juicing. There are guys that have lost over 100 pounds at a rate of one pound a day. However, in order to post such huge losses, they have been on juice-only fasts. Now, I really like the taste of the juice, but I can honestly say I do not have the willpower to go on a juice only fast for much more than a day LOL. In addition, I don't think that would be a good plan for me long term either. Even if I could stay on the fast (which there is no way I could) I am afraid once I quit the fast, the weight would creep back on. I am much more comfortable and confident in the smaller portions and lifestyle change method that I have adopted. The reality is though, I think juicing for a meal several times throughout the week, is something that will aide and not hinder me while on this journey. In addition, I can see a lot of good in the fact of getting nutrients from the juice of fruits and vegetables I would never ordinarily be eating. So far all I can say is that the machine is very easy to use and it does a good job. I plan to use it for a few days and will let you know how it goes. Anyways, have you ever tried a juicer? I would love to hear of your experience with it. Is juicing something you would consider? Maybe you know of someone that has tried juicing. Maybe you think it is plain stupid. Whatever the case let me know what you think. I really value your input!!!
