Tips For The Beginners

  1. You do not have to have a juicing machine to get started. I recommend using a blender until you decide if you are all in. Juicers range in price from about $60 to $500 and you probably already have a blender.

  2. Your goal should be an intake of three whole fruits a day and four whole vegetables a day. Remember to go for color in your selection process so that you have a good mixture of taste, vitamins and minerals.

  3. Watch your calorie and sugar intake. When juicing it is sort of easy to lose count of your calorie intake and sugar intake so stay with a plan that is is not so heavy on the fruit side and remember to cut fruit juicing with flax seed, yogurt, almond milk or even a vegetable or peanut butter.
