A column for Juicers.
Anybody who has been around the fitness game will tell you that a huge percentage of your returns on investment have more to do with what your diet contains than your workout.
I am not sure which I dislike the most — processed foods or juicing. That’s not true, I do know, I hate juicing and everything about it except the finished product. And if I purchase the finished product, I am offended by the stupidly high cost of one bottle.
Juicing is a drag
It is so much work and so expensive, and I have to admit that for the most part I don’t want to be known as a juicer because for the most part they are just so pretentious.
Juicers who wear juicing it on their sleeve and just have to tell everybody they juice are max-boring.
Be that as it may
If you want my opinion about juicing being a good or bad thing: I close to a mostly raw food diet, and would do a straight juice diet if not for the preceding things I said I hate about it.
I honestly don’t know if an all juice diet is a good thing, but I am open and would like to do some tests and report it complete with blood panels if anybody wants to pay for it, and that would include a retailer of bottled juices, which would be my choice for convenience.
Incidentally, I am 70 and from my photos I think you will agree I don’t look too terrible. I mention that because if you are a fatso, I mean a real fatso, you could make better progress faster than me so that’s a good reason to make an effort to improve your body. Your results will be motivational. I mention it because if you are that person and you start anything that gives you those rapid results with little effort, and you don’t stick with it you might need a psychologist more than than you need me telling you what to do.
All I wanted to do with this column
Was bring something to light for juicers and non-juicers alike. I have no delusions about myself knowing everything, which is why I am always studying.
I also have been at fitness long enough to know the gains are incremental, except when starting out and the results can be astronomical compared to those who have been at it and can only expect incremental returns.
I found the included video just recently. Some of the highlights (which you will find in the video and may be new to you as they were to me.):
- Many vegetables contain nutrients that need a little twist to release for the most benefit.
- Most of our carbs should come from vegetables rather than fruits.
- Always add some Essential Fatty Acid oil to vegetables (could be nuts or seeds, or out of a bottle).
- It is beneficial to heat raw vegetables just a little.
My job is done.
