    I’m thinking of trying juicing out. I work out a lot but don’t really diet as well as I should. I’ve been meaning to do a healthy cleansing diet and given the nutrition content of vegies and fruits, I might go for a juice diet.

    I’ll try it for 3 days first and see if I can hold out for a week.

    Thanks for the nice post.

      Hey, thanks for your comment. Juicing is a great way to get those fantastic nutrients and enzymes from fruit and vegetables. A juice fast (cleanse) might sound like you’re starving yourself, but in reality the opposite is true. You consume a lot of nutrients, calories and fresh food! You don’t go hungry. If you feel hungry, have some more.

      One of my favorite recipes to get me going in the morning is 6 carrots and a handful of parsley. It’s called “Rocket Fuel”.

      Thanks again and best of luck to you. Juice on!

    Can you tell me what you feel are the absolute best fruit and vegetables are for carotenoids?

    My plan is to try to combine the two into one drink.

      Hi Cheryl,

      That’s a very good question. I have read a lot of Dr. Weil’s books and find them very useful. Carrots are one of my favorites. Carrots are a very good source of beta-carotene and so are cantaloupe (I’ve juiced cantaloupe once or twice). Once ingested, beta-carotene is either converted into vitamin A (retinol), which the body can use in a variety of ways, or it acts as an antioxidant to help protect cells from the damaging effects of harmful free radicals.

      I would do a little research and look for more fruits and vegetables that contain a combination of beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lycopene, and lutein. I’m sure you’ll find some that appeal to you for juicing. For me I think some of the best for juicing are tomatoes, spinach, kale, watermelon, apples and broccoli.There are many recipes that include them. If you get the free juice suggestion software you can use it to find some good recipes.

      Here’s one of my favorite recipes – Sweet Watermelon, Apple & Carrot.

      Thanks for the question. I hope this helps and happy juicing!

    Honestly I did not know that Phytonutrients are also known to fight free radicals. Now, that’s a great fact! Thanks by the way!

    I just want to say that juicing is fantastic and I am glad to see other people getting into the trend! It’s inspiring! As a little tip, I usually will add a little yacon syrup or agave to help sweeten up some of my recipes!

    Good luck to all of you!

    I tried juicing before but I had trouble keeping a consistent schedule of it. Do you have any tips on that? I think this post has given me a bit of inspiration to give it a go again!
