Because nothing says cleaning out your system like bombarding it with sugars.

If you get your juice through a MLM you know its good.

This. Anything attached to the words "craze" or "fad" probably isn't good for you.

They never seem to mention that if you drink copious amounts of fruit and vegetable juice, you're going to poop juice.

"When you juice fruits and vegetables, you're "mechanically pulverizing," them, Nelson says. Doing so separates the fiber from the juice."

Do people drink the juice and discard the pulp?

So, ve must exterminate the juice!

Yes, most juicing appliances discard the pulp in the process

An 8-ounce glass of orange juice may contain as many as four medium oranges, Canfield says.

I'd like to know where he gets his info from. 1 medium orange, (about 2.5" diameter) is about 65 calories. 1 serving of OJ (8 oz) is about 110 calories, so not even equal to two oranges.

I was helping a friend get ready for her first half-marathon and tried to find her a good website to reference. I cannot believe how much junk is on the webs regarding diet and exercise. Nearly every site I saw recommended "carb-loading", which is complete bunk. What your body doesn't immediately use gets turned to fat, period.

I finally got pissed and printed her off an article from Medscape that referenced 30 studies from peer-reviewed journals. Science, biatches.

Have a glass of OJ and do a couple shots from your toilet this evening. Let us know how it works out.

Poop is mostly the bacteria that live in your large intestine and eat insoluble fiber. Your body would absorb most of the juice in your stomach as water, or in your small intestine.

I've seen this "juicing craze" come and go at least three times in my lifetime, and I'm only in my 40s. Every few years some whackadoodle comes out of the woodwork to proclaim that living on a diet of juice has turned them into Superman, made them immune to cancer, and extended their life beyond natural boundaries.

People buy juicers and tons of fruits and veggies. They try. They rave about it at first, and then they get bored with it and realize that even if it does work, it's not worth living life if you don't get to have a cheeseburger or bacon & eggs every once in a while. Then they get bored with the juicing because it's really kind of a hassle, and finally, the juicer ends up stashed in the closet or in a cupboard, never to be used again, and they start buying juice in a bottle from the grocery store.

After a little more time, they're back to coffee and an Egg McMuffin in the morning. Every once in a while they'll have orange juice and think back to their juicing fad, and then they'll take another bite of their McBreakfast or McDinner and go back to normal.

My vote is for blending instead (kale and spinach base, some water, a few ice cubes and vary it up with oranges, blueberries, celery, carrots, bananas, avocados, kiwis, apples and chia seeds).

/this is your body without fiber!!!

I have a juicer and I like the vegetable and fruit juices and combinations which can be made from it.

One thing with your basic juicer (meaning cheap) is that it has to be cleaned after each use, promptly and you better have a small brush to get the pulp out of the filter/cutter.

When you juice various vegetables, the pulp goes into a holding tank. You can remove it and pack it in plastic bags and freeze it to add later to soups and stews as a thickener. Much of the flavor will be gone, but the fiber will mix well along with any nutrients left. Stronger vegetables like onions, celery and green peppers will still have quite a bit of taste left.

You can also add the fiber to smoothies you make.

Fruit pulp can be added to desserts, puddings and even jello. It can be added to pies and even ice cream. Though, macerated, it does loose some taste and, even frozen, you're going to want to use it fairly soon.
Quite some time ago, juicing became The Big Health Craze and juicers of all types popped up ranging from inexpensive to take out a loan to buy one.

Anyone with half a brain, reading the many juicing books which came out, would know that if it sounded too good to be true, it usually was. Yet, there were plenty of actual health benefits to make it interesting.

Smoothies had not been created when the first juicing craze hit, back in the 80's.

Also, fresh juice, especially anything mixed with veggies, doesn't keep well. You usually need to refrigerate it nearly immediately, add a certain amount of lemon juice to retard spoiling or pasteurize it. It will not keep like store bought juices. It will also separate when left alone for a few hours.

It will have an 'earthy' taste and scent that might take some getting used to.

I like to mix carrot with apples, toss in some celery, add lettuce and a few grapes. I make enough to last about a day, meaning less than a quart. If the vegetable is bitter, so will be its juice, so you learn to balance the flavors.

Tomatoes are great. Add in a bit of green pepper. Then the universal apple. Toss in a fresh peach and you have a pleasant drink.

Most 'Juicers' learn real fast NOT to add much onion or garlic. Juicing seems to intensify those flavors. The same with strong root veggies, like parsnips.

Carrots and tomatoes and apples mix well. You can even juice melons -- but with any seedy fruit, often avoid running the seeds through. Most are bitter. Some, like apple seeds, contain a tiny bit of arsenic. Even grape seeds, if you've ever chewed up any, can be bitter so with grapes, the smaller the seeds, the better the juice.

If you wouldn't normally eat the seed of a fruit, then don't toss the seeds in a juicer.
Like smoothies? You can add various juices to them for added flavor, to thin out the mix or just for the heck of it.

Like V-8? You can add both juice and pulp to glasses of it to change the flavor a bit.

There are many healthy things that can be done with juicing -- but it's not a cure-all health diet. It will improve your health and give you some fun in the process.

I use it along with a normal diet.

Juice up some Ginger, dump a tablespoon of the milky results in a glass, add cold ginger ale and you have a spicy, unique tasting drink. Pure ginger juice has a peppery bite to it. If you've ever tasted the soft drink Ginger Beer, you'll know what I mean.

BTW, you Never attempt to juice anything like meat or fish for obvious reasons. If you want pulpy meat, use a blender.

Bananas don't juice very well either due to their texture. Most of any fruits of such a consistency will wind up in the pulp bin. Like Avocados.

Juicing is great, but don't get all fanatical about it. It's better than soda if you have kids and far better than Kool-Aid. You can even cut the mix with seltzer water.

Carrots, juiced, IMO, are better than the whole raw vegetable. Carrots are tough, crunchy and need salt when you eat them raw. Kids probably don't find them all that appealing. They are sweet, though and a great source of vitamins. Plus, juiced carrots can be added to many drinks.

Never juice the carrot greens. They're not edible.

So, juicing is just fine, actually healthy and a nice alternative just so long as you don't go crazy with it.

GonzoNihilist: They never seem to mention that if you drink copious amounts of fruit and vegetable juice, you're going to poop juice.


In 2012 I had to have surgery and was on an all liquid diet for 3 days PRIOR to the 24 hrs of nothing at all. So it was 4 days without solid food, and what I could eat and drink was restricted to nothing red or purple. All I had was jello and beef broth or chicken broth and water and some juice. I was crying, angry, restless. It was the most miserable experience of my life and by the start of the 3rd day I had been having so much diarrhea that I just abstained from all forms of sustenance. I was sucking on a wet towel just for minimal moisture when I was in the recovery room because I had to wait till the following morning before I could eat food again and I pigged the fark out.

Just to cap it off, when they asked what I wanted for breakfast it was like Gary Oldman in The Professional: 

"Bring me everything."
"What do you mean?"

Do people drink the juice and discard the pulp?


Spinach: use the pulp to make spinach dip.

Carrot: could use pulp to make carrot cake or bread or muffins. I discard it.

Celery: no useful application.

Apples: I no longer juice them. I peel and core them and reduce them in a food processor and add it to the juice. Same with strawberries and blueberries.

Oranges: you could probably use for making sherbet of some other dessert. I discard it.

What I don't use I put out for the animals.

Or, rather than  juicing, you could get a good blender and puree it, pulp and all, all into a delicious smoothie. (apple, spinach, cucumber, green tea)
