3 Juicing Myths Debunked
We've all heard about the many benefits of juicing- from weight loss to detoxification and maximum absorption of nutrients. If you are totally new to juicing, you may have heard of several conflicting information.
You turn the TV on or read articles from the internet and you are as confused as ever.
Before jumping into the craze, check out the most common myths below so you can avoid juicing pitfalls.
1.) The Most Expensive Juicer is the Best
Choosing the best juicer can be a little tricky. You may get too excited and purchase the most expensive model without knowing that it's not exactly what you need.
If you prefer speed over quality then a centrifugal juicer is perfect for you. You can get one for as low as $100.
The only con with this type of juicer is that you can only store the fresh juice for a maximum of 5 to 7 hours.
If you like your juice to have pulp in it then go for a masticating juicer.
This type of juice extractor is a little on the pricey side but it produces better juice (at least nutrition wise) in general.
How expensive your juicing machine is hardly matters. The most important thing is to buy one that will fit your needs.
2.) Juicing Works Like Magic When it Comes to Weight Loss
There is a misconception about the role of juicing in weight loss. So many promotional campaigns claim that drinking fresh juice will automatically make you lose inches off your waist regardless of what's in it or how much you drink.
While fruits and vegetables are undeniably good for you, remember that they contain calories too just like any other food.
If you want to lose weight with juicing, you have to consider your caloric requirement and limit.
The problem starts when you begin to consume more fruits and vegetables than what you would normally eat.
When you extract juice from fresh produce, you are discarding the fiber that keeps you feel full longer.
Since you get hungry in a matter of an hour or two, you will juice some fruits and veggies again to keep you satiated.
3.) Juicing is the Best Way to Detoxify Your Body
We believe all sorts of things that other people claim and this is clearly one of them.
Some people who do "juice fasting" do not eat anything for one whole week and they rely on fresh juice for their caloric and nutritional daily requirement.
The problem arises when your muscles start to break down in order to supply your body with much needed protein.
This is an unhealthy way to cleanse your body. Since you are not getting enough nutrients, vitamins and minerals, your hair and skin will suffer.
You will also experience irritability, fatigue and weakness.
Remember that the body is naturally gifted to cleanse itself.
The liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract all work to remove toxins from our bodies naturally.
Bottom-line, consume fresh fruit and vegetable juices because you enjoy them.
