I've recently began juicing as a way to cut back on calories and lose weight. This is something a close friend of mine has been doing and she has lost quite a lot of weight in the past few months. If you look at it from a macro point of view, the concept is rather simple- consume less calories than your body burns each day. One popular way to do it is by cutting down on foods with high carbs & fats and increasing the intake of fruits and vegetables. While many of us have successfully implemented this strategy, enjoying remarkable weight loss in the process, there are still plenty of people who simply donít like eating a lot of vegetables or a lot of fruits. What are they to do? One word- Juicing!

Described in technical terms, juicing is a process whereby natural liquids, vitamins and minerals are extracted from fruits and vegetables, stripping away any solid matter and leaving behind liquid extract. Clearly, this is ideal for people who are not big fans of eating veggies or fruits.

When most people think of juicing then think of buying juice from the store. Thatís not really a great idea as bottle or canned juice is very likely to contain extra sugar additives. Similarly, packed juice is highly pasteurized (in order to extend the shelf life) which in turn kills off some of the nutrients and reduces the amount of vitamins contained in it.

Experts unanimously agree that the best method of juicing is to prepare fresh juice. Not only does it taste miles better, the nutritional benefits far surpass that of canned or bottled juice. Additionally, making fresh juice at home is likely to cost you a mere fraction of what buying packed juice would. Of course you can take it up a notch by using only organic products to make your juice blends.

There are various ways in which you can reap the benefits of juicing. For instance, there are some people who go all the way and replace all their meals with juice blends. Needless to say this is a highly effective approach as fruits and vegetables contain very low amount of calories compared to the regular food most of us eat. Meanwhile, There are others who follow an altered approach and combine a single healthy meal a day with juices for the rest of the part.

Juicing not only gives you a massive boost of energy, it increases the immunity levels, reduces the chance of heart attacks and even cancer. On a mental level, the intake of healthy nutrients that comes with juicing increases a personís ability to think clearly, heightens the sense of smell & taste and even helps you sleep easily. Others have reported an improvement in their complexion and a massive reduction in the aging process.

The best part about juicing is that it can be easily done at home by using a regular blender or a juicer. Itís a good idea to peel citrus fruits, chop up fruits like apples and bananas in smaller pieces and remove any seeds before putting them in the blender/juicer. Needless to say, good preparation makes the juicing process a whole lot simpler. There are plenty of tasty juicing recipes that use fruits as well as vegetables that are available online. I have personally have been drinking a 'Green Juice' which contains kale, carrots, ginger, cucumber, apple and broccoli, which I 'juice' with my Hamilton beach Juicer that i bought for about 65 dollars on Amazon a few months ago. What Recipes do you guys use? Id like to start expanding on different juices for different scenarios such as energy for those slow mornings instead of coffee.

heres the recipe:
5 oz of baby spinach
2 green apples
2 carrots
2 celery sticks
1/2 lemon

Juicing allows to consume a healthier amount of vegetables in an efficient manner. Virtually every health authority recommends that we get six to eight servings of vegetables and fruits per day and very few of us actually get that. Juicing is an easy way to virtually guarantee that you will reach your daily target for vegetables.
