Juicing Myths and Myths About Juicing

Juicing Myths? There are many myths surrounding the juicing industry that often confuses consumers.  There are those that say it’s a waste of time and money and others that claim it’s just another craze.  But yet, there is no denying that juicing is good for you.  There’s also no argument that it’s often difficult for most people to eat enough fruits and vegetables in a day that is needed for optimum health.

So let’s separate the juicing truths from the juicing myths:

1.  It tastes bad!

This is one of the top juicing myths. Many people assume that when they try a green colored juice, they will essentially be drinking something that takes like their backyard.  But this is not true!  Even the pickiest of eaters are surprised at how fresh and delicious a nutritious juice tastes!  Adding an apple, mint, ginger or a lemon can naturally sweeten a juice to make it taste even better.  Want the benefits of kale but don’t think you can stomach the taste?  Try this:

1/2-cup pineapple

4-cups chopped de-stemmed kale leaves

1 large cucumber

1/2 squeezed lemon

1/2 mint

Add to juicer and blend.  This recipe is rich in enzymes and tastes terrific.  Make sure your drink your juice right away, as vegetable juice is highly perishable.

2.  Juicing is a fad!

Once you give juicing a try, you will find that it will be a staple to your healthy diet.  Not only is it easy, but it’s an excellent way to lose weight safely while increasing your energy level and improving your overall mood.  It doesn’t take long to notice a huge difference in how you feel.

3.  I won’t get full!

This is one of the most inaccurate juicing myths! Juice fresh from your juicer is a natural supplement that can actually make you feel fuller longer.  When your body is getting exactly what it requires, it feels satisfied.

4.  Juicers are too expensive:

There are several very high end juicers available on the market, however, if you are new to juicing, then start with a mid-price machine.  Because you will be saving on those expensive pre-made supermarket juices, as well as those packaged foods that aren’t always healthy anyway, it will pay for itself in no time.

5.  Juicing takes up too much time:

People are surprised at how easy juicing really is.  Many chop up their vegetables and fruits and keep in the refrigerator so that everything is ready to go when a juice craving hits.  Not only that, many parts from juicing machines are dishwasher friendly. A good quality juicer should produce a delicious, satisfying drink in less than five minutes from start to finish, often shorter than brewing a cup of coffee.

There seems to be plenty of Juicing Myths floating around but you’ll be surprised to find that juicing is healthy, it tastes great, it saves you time and money, and has a positive impact on you.

  1. Also can if i just blend the veggies will u still benefit me

  2. Donnie- I don’t know if you still look at this site or not as allot of the posts I see are older. But if you do I have a question, I cant very well tote my juicer to work with me every day so I have been making 2 juices in the am and having one for breakfast and one to take to work for lunch. I put it in a good quality thermos and put it in the fridge at work. Will it still loose nutritional value? If I make it at 7 am and don’t drink it till noon or 1 pm? If so I need to figure something else out! Can you please email me.

  3. I’ve been on my second day of juicing I plan on doing this for the rest of march your site has completely opened my eyes to trying this. But today while in the kitchen I did have a spoonful of rice I feel horrible I’m sure this wont mess up my complete cycle right?

  4. Hi Donnie my juicer just arrived and I am excited to begin my juice fast journey. I love your site and how you explain the process. I have 80 lbs. to lose, and I need to improve my overall health. Would you please give me advise on how to achieve my goal? I will be monitored by my doctor. Thanks

  5. Hi Donnie /
    I am just about to start a 3 day juice fast as a newbie novice. I am a little concerned that I have read / heard that fiber helps regulate the amount of carbs / sugars absorbed into the blood system. Removing the fibers leads to an overload of sugars being absorbed from the concentrated juice thus leading to insulin being overloaded and a sugar spike being experienced. I get migranes if I exercise heavily then eat chocolate post exercise which I believe to be sugar related. I see that headaches are to be expected after 2-3 days due to ‘toxins being expelled from the system’. I am worried that I will actually be experiencing one thing believing it to be another, less harmful if not beneficial, thing.
    Advice please ? thank you in anticipation.

    • ok, I’ve just finished my last juice of day 2 and all is going remarkably well. To deal with my concern detailed above before breakfast and lunch juices I mix 2 dessert spoons of chia seeds in a glass of water. Chia is being studied as a potential natural treatment for type-2 diabetes because of its ability to slow down digestion. The gelatinous coating chia seeds develops when exposed to liquids-can also prevent blood sugar spikes. I appreciate it’s absorption rather than digestion, but got to be worth a try :)
