The photo below caught my attention while browsing through the various posts in my facebook account. My OC (obsessive compulsive) ways on losing weight was triggered (again) that compelled me to surf the net tirelessly about juicing.
What is juicing? You may ask.
It is extracting the juice from fruits and raw vegetables with a juicer. Proponents believe that juicing is better for you than consuming the whole fruit or vegetable because your body can absorb the nutrients and vitamins better. Your digestive system also is able to rest since the fiber is separated during juicing. Others say though that it should never replace your consumption of the fruit or vegetable in the whole form completely.
This is also good news to those who, like me, is choosy when it comes to eating my vegetables. We can now expand the range of nutrients by including vegetable juices in our diet that we don't normally consume. Similarly the process of juicing is fairly easier than cooking. You just need to invest in a reliable juicer, clean your vegetable or fruit thoroughly, cube them and put in the juicer. In less than one minute, the liquid will flow out and you can instantly savor the fresh and healthy drink you've concocted right at your very home!
Juicing works best if you include exercise to your lifestyle. This way your body won't sag when you start losing all the unwanted pounds. Instead you will achieve a leaner and toned physique when you move your body. And the next time you put something in your mouth, remember the poster below and the effect it will have on your body.
