Losing weight by juicing is one of the things that makes juicing so popular today. Weight loss isn't about eating less, it's about eating right. Fresh juice contains the healthy nutrients you need so your body can do what it does best instead of trying to figure out the best way to continue surviving with the pizza you just gave it.
There's some faux-science articles out there that claim juice isn't healthy, but whether the authors of those articles know it or not, they're talking about the shelf stable 'juice' you get at the store. I think we all can agree that the purple stuff you buy at the store isn't healthy. That's not the kind of juice we're talking about. If you're here, I imagine you understand that.
If you've seen documentaries like Joe Cross' "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead," you can see what your body can do when you feed it a lot of healthy nutrients. What's an incredible source of all kinds of healthy nutrients? Fruits and vegetables.
Experts recommend you eat at least 6 - 8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. I think it's safe to say that it can be difficult to hit that daily.
Now, if only we could find a way to ingest a lot of fruits and vegetables...
I imagine that's what Norman Walker was thinking when he invented the first modern juicer in 1936.
