The Benefits of Juicing — And How to Make the Best Shake



Revenue in the weight loss industry skyrockets this time of year. Why? Everyone is looking for a quick-fix to lose the stubborn five or 10 pounds they accumulated last year (hopefully not all during the holidays!). Quick fixes such as calorie cutting and fad diets never work — they’re simply not sustainable. The key to reaching your weight loss goals is to create new healthy lifestyle habits.

When you change your focus to health, as opposed to vanity, the side effect becomes weight loss. Don’t get me wrong, everyone wants to look their best, but deprivation in order to fit into those size six jeans is going to backfire. So why not start out making small changes over time? And why not start with this: a detoxifying green juice that’s energizing, nutrient-dense and satisfying.

I personally start most days with a green juice, and follow it up with a healthy breakfast (check some out here). One of my all-time favorite breakfasts is apple cinnamon quinoa — a wonderfully warm and energizing breakfast especially when it’s chilly outside.

Health benefits and tips for juicing as below.

Drinking your greens has many health benefits including:

Bone-building: Greens provide a mega-dose of minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium and chromium (a blood sugar balancing mineral).
Beautification: Just one cup of kale provides 70 per cent of our recommended daily intake of vitamin C with only 20 calories. Vitamin C is a precursor to collagen, which is a skin protein responsible for preventing premature wrinkles.

Alkaline: We could all use more alkaline foods in our diet. Most people are very acidic due to stress, sugar, caffeine, red meat, processed foods and a lack of exercise (or too much exercise). Greens are alkaline, making it helpful in balancing your body’s pH level.

Please note: All of these recipes are created in my joyous kitchen with the healthiest ingredients. I’m not a calorie counter or a professional chef — I’m a nutritionist who loves to cook and bake, and I’m delighted to share my creations with you.

Quick Review:

This is crap! There are no health benefits to juicing, you are perpetuating another Urban Myth. In reality juicing works to extract larger quantities of fructose from the fruit or vegetables. Fructose is a sugar, sugar is bad. Without the fiber from those same items to slow the absorbing of the sugar, blood sugar spikes in unhealthy amounts.

You people are witch doctors and can provide absolutely no scientific proof of your claims.
