If you are on the dieting treadmill, looking for yet another method, considering pills, potions, powders or the prepackaged, expensive prepared foods, you might want to consider juicing. It’s so much easier and much more pleasant tasting than many other methods.
Four years ago, I began juicing and purchased the Jack LaLane Juicer. I was so impressed by the information that I had seen about this particular juicer and, of course, many of us remember Jack LaLane as the fitness expert on TV back in the fifties and sixties. (The fact that he is still around at the time of this writing is amazing.) I was looking for a pleasant method to help with health and nutrition to achieve weight loss. Juicing is very healthful as the vitamins and minerals from the vegetables reach the bloodstream quickly. Also, juicing is like a raw diet–very nutritious.
I prefer vegetable juices over fruit juices, because of the natural sugar content in fruits.I have probably juiced every vegetable–my favorites are beets, carrots, zucchini, belgian endive, tomatoes and cabbage. There are so many wonderful combination’s you can make.
The way I lost weight was by having an 8 ounce glass of vegetable juice before each meal. Many times I have also used juice as a meal. Having a vegetable cocktail before dinner is like having a before dinner cocktail, but without the alcohol. The difference here is that the drink will take the edge off of your appetite. You will not eat as much, because you will never come to the table overly hungry.
There are many books available on juicing. You should check them out to see the many different juice combinations. Also, there are many brands of juicers. My favorite is the Jack LaLane Juicer. I own another brand, one that cost much more than the Jack LaLane Juicer. You may have a juicer tucked away in a cupboard or closet–if you have a juicer it does need to be out on the counter, available at all times. So often, if we put appliances away, we never bother to get them out to use them.
If you are struggling to lose weight and you want to try a pleasant, healthful approach to weight loss, you might give juicing a try. It’s much easier on your body than most other methods. It’s also something that all members of the family can share and enjoy. How many “diet” plans can say that?
So, give juicing a try for weight loss and remember, that weight does not come off overnight. It took 6 months for me to lose 45 pounds, but it was a very pleasant journey and well worth it.
