    Any thoughts. We as bodybuilders get so caught up with protein carbs n fats we never talk about those green things that grow from dirt. I was considering juicing. Mainly for the Heath benefits as cancer runs in my family any thoughts? Im totally new to this so any thing you know about juicing, juicers, even recipes would be great.

    I just got a juicer at G N C that was on hot buy. I have been putting apples, oarnges, and carrots in it and mixing them together. It tastes alot better than alot of my supplements.

    It works really well to. Makes a smooth juice with zero pulp, but you can change it if you want and make it keep pulp.

    Great way to get your veggies in. Easier to digest them in liquid form. Try adding some Mangos and Berries for extra flavor ;-)

    Juicers are great for nutrients, but they strip the veggies and fruit of all the fiber. I bought a VitaMix blender after much hesitation and it is hands down one of the best investments I've ever made. I make Kale/Cucumber/Celery/Pear/Ginger shakes with protein and almond milk and am consuming WAY more veggies than I normally would, not to mention the fiber cleans out your gut very nicely. This is especially important if you're eating a ton of meat (see diverticulitis).

    I feel better, have more energy, skin looks better, and I spend significantly less time on the can (another benefit of fiber).

    If you have the cash, buy one. Well worth it and it comes with a ridiculous warranty.

    If you don't want to shell out the cash, juicing some veggies, add the juice to your blender, then blend 1 cup spinach with a pear or apple. Add almond milk and protein to taste. Trust me, it's a game changer.

    Yeah, I watched the documentary. Crazy stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if it was true and legitimately worked.

    That said, for those of us who haven't been given 4 months to live, blending vegetables and drinking the fiber is the way to go. My friend swears by a 50/50 mix, but I'm lazy and just put everything in my VitaMix.

    What about blending veggies any one do that. I read its better because it keeps the fiber and its a lot easier to clean than a juicer?

    Kale + Celery + Cucumber + Pear + Ginger = Dank Juice

    BLEND (don't juice) 1 cup spinach until fine, add 8oz almond milk, a few berries, and 1-2 scoops of protein. Add Dank Juice. Blend. Enjoy. Poop Easy.

    I make "raw vegetable" soup (carrot, celery, onion, cilantro, spinach, tomato, cheese, spices...), whole fruit juices, orange (w/ peel) banana (no peel) yogurt smoothies... make them all w/ my blendtec, super fast, healthy, short prep time, and easy.

    Way better than a juicer, which are hard to clean, and don't break down cell walls (if you believe that stuff).
