Here is the truth: juicing really can make you healthier. There are also, obviously, a few harmful varieties of juicing as well, particularly when you juice specific types of fruits and vegetables. This happens because some foods will contain higher amounts of pesticide residue than others. And that is why it is important to learn as much as you can about juicing, especially if you’re a newbie.
One of the biggest puzzles in nutrition is the sheer number of fruits and vegetables that people are supposed to eat every day. Very few people probably do that, and it’s tough because that’s a lot of food. This is why juicing is so great, it makes it easier for you to reach that goal. Another thing that you have to think about is that taking in all of those fruits and veggies can be quite expensive.
At the time of this writing it is 2012, gas costs quite a lot of money, many countries that supply us with fruits and vegetables are going through droughts and food is simply more expensive than it has ever been. And you’ll want to use organic foods to avoid pesticides. To sum up, it is really expensive to be truly healthy, so instead of stressing out about it, take a multi-vitamin and do what you can.
There are probably truly few unique health benefits associated with juicing even though lots of marketing will suggest otherwise. That isn’t to say, though, that juicing is a bad idea. Quite the contrary, juicing is still a great idea for several reasons we’ve talked about in so many articles.
I feel it’s important that you avoid falling for any hype marketing about the subject. Juicing is a lifestyle way of getting proper nutrition, and it’s actually better than taking a vitamin. For those who are concerned about their body weight, you can take some green coffee bean extract after your juices to rid yourself of those excess calories. It is still a good idea to do both, however–it shouldn’t cause a problem. This is how you can more or less cover all the bases and ensure you’re getting everything that you need to get.
Experienced juicers (the people) will recommend you avoid certain foods when you are new to drinking juice from veggies. Some vegetables, for examples, will make your stomach uncomfortable. That’s probably due to the level of nutrient concentration in your juices. People who are new to juicing should begin with simple things like cucumbers and celery. Then add a little bit of lemon or lime as it suits your taste. When you want to improve the taste of your veggies, these two fruits are quite a lot more helpful than any of the others. In addition to having a good taste, they have nutrients and make the juice taste much more agreeable to you. All you can do is experiment and that’s half the fun of juicing, anyway. Most people do not see the cooking and eating of vegetables as anything fun. Most people who are into juicing, though, really enjoy the process. This probably feels odd for you, probably because you’re new to putting juice in your diet. This is a powerful way to add a new dimension in your daily diet.
