Re: Juicing your fruits and vegetables.

TOTALLY can see where overconsuming may be an issue. I used 6 oranges and 6 carrots and it lead me just making 3 glasses of Juice! I had all 3 glasses because it was delicious but I would never sit down and consume that much.

The amount of pulp that is made is ridiculous and almost unbelievable. What I recently found out is that the pulp can also be used to make foods =)! No more lost important nutrients!

Also using veggies instead of fruit can actually benefit me. I stick to zone and to create 4 blocks strictly on solid veggies makes me feel like a plant. The amount of veggies for 4 blocks is A LOT! Juicing them will make a world of difference for me.

Think about how many oranges go into orange juice. You wouldn't sit down and eat 8 oranges in one sitting, would you?
I absolutley would.
