If you have ever tried juicing raw, organic fruits and vegetables then you know you are doing a service to your health. However, if you are new to juicing and are skeptical of the benefits, think again. Many renowned dieticians and health professionals are giving praise to the often underutilized and avoided foliage. Studies are showing phytonutrients and antioxidants from fruits and vegetables are excellent aids to immune system support due to their ability to fight free radicals, which in turn cause disease, cancer and other forms of cellular breakdown. The list of benefits goes on, but the most popular benefit is the one for your waistline.
These power foods are a tremendous component to fat and weight loss. Check out one of the videos inspiring the juicing movement, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead,” by Joe Cross. The video depicts a middle aged man, 100 pounds overweight and on a bucket full of medications. He also has an autoimmune disease, so needless to say he is ready for a lifestyle change. He goes on 60 day juice fast while touring America to promote his journey and inspire others away from Americanized foods. Not only does Joe Cross lose 100 pounds in sixty days; by then he is disease and medication free. The individuals who join Joe on his journey also experience life altering, positive changes.
I’m not saying a juice fast is for everyone and even Joe explains throughout the video that the fast is purely a reboot for his system. Ultimately you should supplement juicing into a clean, well balanced diet. For my own personal needs, I supplement juicing for at least two of my five to six meals a day. Joe did the same and even has recommendations on his site at www.fatsickandnearlydead.com.
