Juicing has become quite popular. It seems everyone is out buying the new juice machines and adding it to their diets, but how healthy can it be? Can juicing be good for weight loss? Do you get the nutritional benefits from juice that you get from actually eating fruits and vegetables? You do get nutrients that is beneficial to your body from juice, but along with drinking juice, you need to still eat at least three or four vegetables each day and two fruits.
When you are drinking your vegetables and fruits, then the juicing machine is taking the juice that is in the vegetables and fruits, then leaving some of the important nutrients behind that is in the skin of most fruits and vegetables.

Hi Speed Mixer Plus My Favorite Weight Loss Product
Here is something I do to make a really good and power packed weight loss drink. I add one stick pack of weight loss pink drink powder and a pouch of protein powder to all the fruits and vegetables in my Vitamixer. I also add about 8 to 10 ounces of water or ice to the mix. I let the Vitamixer do its work and in almost no time at all I have a great tasting well rounded drink. I am getting at least 15 grams of protein along with over 5 grams of fiber plus all the vitamins and minerals of the fruits and vegies along with what is in the protein powder. We use all sorts of fruits and vegetables, it all depends on what we have on hand. We keep a supply of frozen strawberries and blackberries in the freezer and add apples, oranges and other fruits and vegetables that we may have in the kitchen. If you use frozen fruits and ice your drink will come out thick like a shake. Use water and it is more of a weight loss drink.
