    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Do you juice?

    Does anyone juice?

    I have a friend who started juicing and got me interested. I see the benefits of juicing and I'm about 75% sure I want to try it.

    Here is the link that I got the most info from (it doesn't seem to be written by hippies).

    http://www.all-about-juicing.com

    If you juice..

    Do you juice everyday? Do you use it as meal replacement? I'm not while about fasting but I can see how juice fasting might be a good way for detox or quick weight loss. Do you fast?

    Do you find it has really made a difference in your health or at least the way you feel?

    EDIT: this is not roids.. it is making homemade veggie juice and such...

    WTF?

    I don't know if you are trolling or what, but if you aren't then I'd have to say that you have not informed yourself enough to say you are 75% sure you want to do it.


    EDIT: ****, should have looked at the link before I replied. I was thinking of the other kind of juicing Please disregard this post.

    Homemade carrot juice is very refreshing.

    Fresh squeezed juice in general will have more nutritional value than store bought juice, simply because of less oxidation over time. Air destroys a number of nutrients over time, especially vitamin C, and store bought juice is often exposed to air during production/storage etc before it gets packaged.

    As far as juice only diets, you'd be missing a lot of things in your diet, not the least of which is fiber. You can't do that for long....

    LOL!
    As I was reading the thread title, I was thinking I should answer with "Hell yes, here's what I use:"


    As far as self-made juice: it's definitely more tasty, but a lot more effort. Not worth it for me, right now.

    Re. juice replacing a meal: the banana juice that my kids are fond of almost works as a full meal. 15g carbs/ 100ml - jeez.

    Oh, and anyone throwing around the term "detox" should be required to go into specifics - what toxins, how do you get rid of them, how can you tell you've succeeded? As Wikipedia states
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detoxification )
    Certain approaches in alternative medicine claim to remove "toxins" from the body through herbal, electrical or electromagnetic treatments (such as the Aqua Detox treatment). These toxins are undefined and have no scientific basis,[5] making the validity of such techniques questionable.

    I'm considering it more as a supplement rather than an all out meal replacement, personally. I have frequently wondered if I was getting the right vitamins and nutrients. This looks like a good source for what I may be missing with out having to take more pills.

    I understand just the opposite, that the breaking down of the cellulose increases bio-availability.

    I love how the OP customized this thread for SEO. Hmmm...

    • Trawl for high ranked sites associated with health / athletics
    • Put the word "juice" in the title
    • Copiously sprinkle the word "juice" throughout the body.
    • Include words such as "health", "detox", and "weight-loss"
    • Embed link in the message body


    Bonus points for appealing to community in order to ensure this post does not get deleted (i.e., reference to hatred for hippies).

    I like to juice just to give me something to drink that's not carbonated, containing alcohol, processed sugars, or other crap. I just like the taste and find it refreshing not to mention I figure it's the easiest way to consume large amounts of spinach, kale, carrot, and whatever other veggies in a short time.
