Juice Up Your Diet!

If your not big on fruits and veggies, but want an easy way to include them in your diet. Juicing would be a great option for you. This also a good meal supplement. Juices should not contain no more than 120-300 calories. If you are thinking about giving this a try here are a few things you should know and expect. 

1. Mix and Match: Aim to eat two whole fruits a day and three to four vegetables a day. Choose them in different colors so you could get a good mix of vitamins and minerals. 

2. Fiber Factor: Keep in mind when you juice, you don't get the fiver that's in whole fruits and vegetables. Juicing machines extract the juice and leave behind the pulp, which has fiber. However, you can add some of the fiber into the juice or you can use it in cooking your weekly meals. 

3. Juicing Machines: Now you don't have to get the most expensive juicer. One that is $50 can do the same amount of work as one that is $300. Just be mindful that certain juicers can break down a lot of the fruit by grinding the core, rind and seeds. If you rather not purchase a juicer, you can opt for a blender. If you are using a blender just be sure to add water so that your mixture is not as thick.  

If you are going to include juicing into your diet, just be sure to get enough fiber and protein so that you don't have the urge to rebel and if your not getting enough protein you may loose muscle mass.
