Discover the Benefits of Juicing to Increase Energy and Speed Weight Loss
An Easier Way to 9 Per Day
It's also one of the fastest ways that I know to zap fatigue and crank up your energy.
And since experts now recommend nine servings daily of fruits and veggies for optimum health, juicing makes more sense than ever.
Sweet CombinationsCombining sweet fruits with nutrient-packed vegetables yields fresh beverages that are rich in flavor and antioxidants.
For instance, green drinks are popular at my house. They are a great source of antioxidants, and contain ample amounts vitamins A and C.
The number of juices you can create is only limited by your imagination.
And once you get started, you're likely to get hooked, just like I did.
More Energy, Fewer CravingsWhen my husband and I got our first juicer back in 2001, I was amazed at how quickly my energy increased.
Even more amazing was the mental clarity I experienced. It was like a thick fog had been lifted off of my brain.
My husband and I reveled in the differences we discovered in these freshly made drinks. Pasteurized, artificially-sweetened, bottled juices can't come close to the flavor of natural ones!
Each day brought experience of new flavors like fresh honeydew melon, celery-apple, cantaloupe and spinach-carrot-apple juices.
With our juicer, we concocted a number of green drinks with beet greens, parsley, spinach and kale, which we sweetened with apples, pears and other fresh fruits. These new flavors excited and satisfied us.
Within a few weeks, my husband and I both noticed that our sugar cravings had subsided. Apple pie a la mode was no longer irresistible.
And my penchant for potato chips? No more.
We had not changed our diets. Nor had we tried to cut down on junk food. It just kind of...happened.
Buying a juicer was, and is, one of the best decisions we've ever made! We quickly noticed that the more we juiced, the less we wanted to eat junk foods. And after juicing for a couple of months, we found that we had both lost weight. What a pleasant surprise that was!
Juicing had definitely changed our lives for the better. And it can do the same for you--if you make it a habit.
A Quick Note
Fruit juices can be high in natural sugars. So if you have a condition that calls for sugar restriction in your diet, such as diabetes, hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, please concentrate more on the fresh vegetable juices.
Of course, it's a good idea to check with your physician for specific advice along these lines.
