Saying hi
« on: July 05, 2012, 08:17:01 PM »
hi everyone,  i recently watched "fat, sick, and nearly dead" and am totally psyched about geting into smoothies and juices.  i have ordered a vitamix (turbo vs) & then started having huge doubts about getting a blender vs. a juicer.  should i just bite the bullet and get a juicer as well?  my husband wants to do a juice fast, as seen in the movie.. he has about 30 pounds he needs to lose.  i want to lose 10 pounds.  we both want the health benefits for life that we know we can get from juicing/blending.  right now i'm just running circles in my mind re: the whole juicing / smoothy issue.  would appreciate your thoughts and advice!  thanks!

Fasts are not the best way to lose weight long term. Usually a diet and/or lifestyle change is required.

The blender keeps the ever important fiber while the juicer removes it. Both are good things but if I were to choose one, it would be a blender.
