View Full Version : Novice Juicer...help please~
09-15-2010, 07:55 PM
I haven't juiced much but have been thinking about it for some time now......I have a champion juicer and a VM and have made juice in both a few times.
I am motivated to do a juice fast but not sure what to do, what kind of juices to start out with, etc...how much to have. I have a watermelon, cantaloupe, lots of carrots, celery, apples, lemons, spinach, a few beets on hand...mixed greens. Not sure how heavy I can go on the greens to start.
I'd be grateful for any info.
I am starting tomorrow...
Who has inspired me??...Aleesha for sure and my 90 year old Mother who just started juicing last week and loves it. Time for me to get a move on~:)

I'm moving this into the fasting section for you.
Try to drink a minimum of 2 litres a day and a max of whatever your body asks for! If it wants 6 litres... drink 6 litres. Remember to get 2 litres of water in as well a day (minimum)
Start light on the greens and increase until you find a nice blend... if you put too many greens in a juice... just add a few apples and it'll balance it nicely!
WELCOME to fasting!!!

I fasted once in the late 70's......Had a copy of Survival Into the 21st Century.
Made some juice today...1 qt so far...will make more in the afternoon with varied produce.
Delicious..........carrot, celery, apple, lemon, ginger, beet.......so good!

mmmm nice! don't forget you can add garlic and spices to your juices!
cayenne is especially good.

Okay I have a simular question,hope thats okay to ask here.
"Try to drink a minimum of 2 litres a day and a max of whatever your body asks for! If it wants 6 litres... drink 6 litres. Remember to get 2 litres of water in as well a day (minimum)" is this only for fasting?
What would the quanity be if you were eating raw foods at same time,how much juice is too little or too much,Ive been drinking maybe one glass every other day,I know thats too little,I want to bump it up, without overdoing it.

There is no overdoing it. Drink as much as you want... and yes you can eat raw live foods at the same time. Your body will only want so much... trust me juice is filling!!! I've been living on them for 96 days now and I'm not hungry!
09-16-2010, 09:38 PM
and remember... juice can be a meal replacement!

Thanks for the help!!!!
Grats on the 96days-hard to even imagine,hope to get to that level at some point.

Is it OK to juice enough juice for two or three days and if it is, how to you preserve the juice so it won't look and taste unappetizing?

you have to have a champion or greenstar juicer (or equivalent)... not a centrifugal if you want to juice ahead of time.
but honestly... fresh is best.
