    I've ALWAYS wanted to get a quality juicer, but never have. I'm horrible about getting fruits and veggies in my diet and I think this may be a way for me to get more and choke them down!

    I have no issues getting my veggie needs - but - I cook the crap out of them. LOL

    RAW is where it's at for health, hence the question (and I HATE raw veggies)

    Yea man u got the idea. Honestly some times mix up some of that onion dip and just eat huge amounts of raw veggies with it.. its kinda of a addiction lol. But I would recommend the brevel not sure if I spelled it right. But its prolly the easiest one to clean and quality built. Cost me round 150 I think.

    you can make some awesome veggie drinks with a good juicer. Allows you to get a huge amount of organ cleansing goodness into your system in one sitting without the huge amounts of fiber involved in eating the veggies whole (cooked or not).

    Agreed

    I want the fiber

    Is there one that doesn't removed the fiber/skin

    That defeats the whole purpose

    To keep the fiber you would want to use a blender instead which will not work for everything. Or you could make your juice and then add some powdered fiber in that would cost you hardly anything. The point of a juicer is not to get fiber anyways it's to get the other nutritional value of the fruits and veggies. You could already be getting enough fiber in other parts of your diet as well if you eat whole grain, beans, etc.

    But the skin + seeds etc is where many the health constituents come from. Discarding them seems counterintuitive.

    So, what type of blender has the high powdered capacity to juice both the interior And exterior parts of a fruit including the seeds?

    I have a juicer and rarely use it.

    If you wanna up your raw veggie intake.. Try broccoli dipped in a italian vinaigrette or in some guacamole.

    Omega series juicers.

    Also - I have a Ninja blender. It can emolsify nearly anything essentially liquify !!!

    Idk the answer to that Whacked. I saw the Ninja blender doing fruit smoothies on an infomercial. I still don't think it would be able to handle any and every fruit/veggie that a juicer could handle.
    I own a juicer and while it was cool for a while I rarely use it anymore. I eat my veggies mixed with my chicken or beef usually and eat my fruits in their original state. It's much easier to me as I like them that way.
    Hell I'll sell you my Breville juicer for $90 shipped. I paid $110 shipped a few months ago and have used it like 10 times lol.

    Yeah I just bust out the dill dip for my veggies... It's a more natural kind. So I'm only taking the hit with fat cals which I've got more than enough room for. works out. Dip the entire head of the broccoli/cauliflower in. Haha. Cut it into bite sizes.

    The Omega no. Maybe the ninja but it depends on the size of the seeds.
    The skin gets juiced no problem by both.

    Good point. I need a high powered blender/processor. I want to retain all the goodies. Too much value LOST with traditional juicing IMO.

    the good thing about juicing is that you drink it and its like doing a line of coke. all the phytonutrients etc are instantly absorbed and dont have to go through the digestion process. look at jack lallanne, guy swam across new york harbor pulling a boat when he was 75, wtf. you can also save the pulp, its discarded in the back into a canister, lots of recipes to use the pulp. i never do though.

    No argument needed here. If you get anything besides a vitamix or blendtec, you are making a HUGE mistake. Trust me. I had a breville...used it once. Got a vitamix and I use it EVERYDAY. I eat a bag of baby spinach with kale, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries blended together every night. I eat more greens than a rabbit. I feel 100x better and it keeps your body very alkaline, which is what you want if you are trying to build muscle. Ask any questions about the vitamix and I will be more than happy to answer. Its the best investment i have made in 5yrs. Its that good

    Thanks - First question: Does it liquify AND keep all the seeds and skin in fruits (so that they are included in the drink)?

    Vitamix are super. Ninja is a step below but saves $$$. Vitamix or Blentech are top of the line and the $$ tag comes along with it.
    Both are blenders, not juicers so all the goods are kept together. Juicers on the other hand, like the Omega will separate pulp (fibrous material) from the juice. There is a place for both depending on what you are making.

    ...and staying Alkaline is a huge benefit for athletes. It fights lactic acid build up for example, as well as inflammation. Many greens in high concentration are ask great for organ cleansing especially the liver.

    I did a bit of research on juicers over the months and finally pulled the trigger on an Omega J8005!!! I've had it for 2 weeks and love the thing. It makes some quality juice. Cleaning it takes less then 90 seconds. I highly suggest looking into one.
