Does Juicing Make YOU Fat & Thin Your Pockets?
From www.businessinsider.com –
Eating more fruits and vegetables is certainly healthy and is something that we should all do. But the process of juicing actually removes much of the fiber from fruits and vegetables, turning them into sugar boosts that don’t come with the same benefits of actually eating plants. By turning them into juice, we make them less healthy.
Editor’s Note: This is a good but very arguable article from Kevin Loria, I must admit though that I love his hard stance and conviction. Kevin seems to think that juicing is a complete waste of time and can even be harmful to your fitness and weight loss goals. I agree and disagree, how about them juiced apples? Huh?
Look… I know that juicing is good for most people. I see a definite benefit in juicing simply because fruit and vegetable juices are nutrient-dense and the juices are loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals in a small unintimidating glass. You don’t have to choke down a bunch of veggies if you don’t want to. Plus, juicing easily increases vegetable and fruit consumption in people who would not normally eat enough to reap the major health benefits that they provide.
With all of that being said, I agree with Kevin, many people are getting ripped off and paying far too much money for these juice cleanses. The low estimate on his scale was $20 per day, that equates to $600 freaking dollars per month, that’s absurd and nearly criminal. Don’t get me started talking about the “high-end” juicing programs… Here are our article highlights:
- Cutting calories can be done cheaply, simply, and sustainably, without going on an expensive and unnecessary program.
- Many people regain weight that they lose on a temporary diet.
- Eating more fruits and vegetables is certainly healthy and is something that we should all do.
