Hi guys!! I'm new to Raw as of this year...I went 100% Raw for 4 months and have been struggling to get back 100%.:p
I want to do a Juice Fast to start it off for like 2 weeks...I've heard the green juices are the best to lower sugar intake as well, which is what I want to do.
Does that mean that green fruits in your green juices is not recommended?
And what about the combo of vegetables? Which combo's daily is good?
I just got a GREAT Jacl Lalanne Juicer which I love, but I want to make sure that I have enough of what I need in me....recipes for green juices that are different would be great! Or any ideas?:D Thanks for your help guys!!!

Sweet Green Juice
1-2 Cucumbers or Zucchini
4-6 Celery Stalks
Sm piece Beets and/or Ginger
Use green apples for a lower sugar option.

I have a Jack, too. I would suggest starting with a small amount of green juice and gradually increase to no more than half green. Even half green may be too much. Mine is probably 25% green juice. When I don't want it sweet I juice the greens (usually kale feed in 2 leaves at a time) with any or all of the following; cucumber (organic with the peel on), celery, fennel bulb.

Thanks guys!!! :D!!!...Is there anything that says that I should mix the drinks daily? Or can I keep repeating them over and over? Is that good for my body to do that?

I don't think you have to mix it up DAILY. If you are liking a certain type or want to use up the produce you have on hand then stick with it, but do mix it up over time. Different foods contain different nutrients, and variety is the spice of life for lots of reasons.
I'm not a juice faster though, so what do I know. That is just my opinion. :)
