Since I have been faithful about going to the gym, I'm losing pounds and inches faster than I expected. I think part of the weight loss is due to the better eating habits I'm practicing.
Juicing (or "smuicing" for those who also enjoy smoothies) is a great way to balance out my nutrition while trying to lose or maintain weight. The hardest part of it all is just like with any kind of diet (or lifestyle change), and that is variety.
I have no problem eating right for months and months. I do tend to get bored with my healthy choices of nutrition. So... I try not to get bored.
With the new - and very affordable - juicer I've had for a couple of weeks, I can change up from smoothies to juices just by rotating two appliances.
Juices are easier for me than smoothies. Here are my latest recipes:
(Can add a little bit of lemon if you want)
Blood Pressure Blend
Apple (for more sweetening)
Workout Refresher Blends (for after the gym)
Celery + Ginger + Cucumber + Oranges
Beets + Apples
Cucumber + Oranges
Blend for Snacktime
Someone mentioned to me that adding a little bit of cayenne to my juices could help rev the metabolism. I want to try it, but I have no tolerance for even mild heat. I might try adding cinnamon to a blend, but I haven't yet.
Another thing about juices vs smoothies: to help replenish the fiber lost from juicing, I like to add back in to the juice some of the pulp that the juicer discards. This means having to shake the pulp around in the juice so that it doesn't all sink, but it's worth it and doesn't really bother me as far as taste.
If anyone has any suggestions for juices or smoothies, feel free to email me.
