Throw away your juicer and buy a blender.

Earlier this week I was talking to someone very close to me and realized they had started “juicing”. It was tough. I was excited they were taking a new interest in their health, but everything in me wanted to scream . . . Throw away your juicer and buy a blender!

Juicing has been super popular off and on for decades. Some people make it sound like a nutrition miracle. It’s not. In case you haven’t noticed, America’s got a weight problem… and drinking calories, regardless of the source (juice, soda, etc), is one of the primary causes.

If you’re looking for a quick, compact way to get in some fruits and veggies, toss them in a blender rather than a juicer. And, for goodness sake, don’t drink any store bought juices. The only possible exception to this – if you regularly maintain a healthy body weight and are consistently active, then juice away. But if your goal is weight loss or body fat loss . . . go get a blender.
