View Full Version : Fasting is getting closer

I want to do a fruit juice f(e)ast but the juicer I have is pretty rubbish. It does just about produce juice from apples and carrots (which is all I have tried it with) but it does push very fine particles of fibre into the juice section. I think I would have to strain it post juicing in order to get just the juice and this would add a considerable number of minutes onto the proceedings. Any advice other than getting a "good" juicer? I can't afford one at the moment.
Hmm, maybe peel the skins off of your fruit (apples etc.) before juicing to avoid excess fibre seeping through? What kind of juicer do you have btw? I'm planning on doing Jason Vale's 7 lbs in 7 days juice fast/feast soon but the juicer I have isn't great either. :/

Maybe put it all in a blender and then strain it....easier on the clean up definitely. I do that most of the time and I have a Jack LaLane jucier that is pretty good. It is just easier to blend and strain for me

I use an Omega juicer, and I still strain the juice to make sure there is absolute minimal fibre... Sure it takes a bit more time, but I don't mind, even when I've done juice fasting in the past. I can understand why you might want to skip the hassle though, I guess it's a personal preference thing. One thing I can suggest is to maybe juice the fruits slowly/in smaller pieces & amounts at a time. Sometimes when I'm juicing apples or parsley I end up with more bits of fibre from trying to juice too much in one feed-through. If all else fails though, just set aside a bit more time and use a strainer until you get a decent juicer! :)

I have been testing it out today and it is a not very good machine but I was given it so it is better than what I had :)
I can't believe how potent watermelon juice is and different it tastes from when you eat the fruit itself. Smells like fresh dryad's saddle fungus!
