Why you need to start juicing

If you want to look amazing, lose fat, and improve your health, I’d advise you to start juicing. Find a dealer, buy some Dianabol, buy some needles, and get your trousers down..

Before anyone gets into a moral outrage, I’m joking of course. The ‘juicing’ I’m referring to here is the practice of putting fruit and veg into a blender and turning it into a juice so you can drink it.

Working a demanding job it’s sometimes difficult to get enough fruit and vegetables in.

I go through phases where I consume alot followed by periods where I consume very little, like 1 banana a day or something. Clearly that’s not enough.

We’ve all heard of the recommended ‘5-a-day’, but there is increasing evidence that the necessary intake should be far above this (at least double in fact).

The benefits of juicing are numerous:

Having finally got annoyed about how bad my intake was, I decided to cough up and buy a Nutribullet (cherry red tbh). The Nutribullet is a very powerful blender specifically designed to chop up the toughest of fruits and vegetables and at £100 it’s very affordable.

My previous blender was a £30 job that had a very hard time breaking down hard fruits – breaking down Floyd Mayweather’s Philly Shell is probably easier in all honesty. (Unless you’re Manny Pacquaio that is..)

Plus cleaning it was a huge pain. I cut my fingers on the blade at the bottom every damn time. Peak.

2 weeks in, buying the Nutribullet is one of the best decisions I’ve made. It arrived in 2 days and I was actually excited going to the grocery store and buying all the different fruit and veg I was going to throw in my juices.

My first ‘haul’ consisted of baby spinach, carrots, cucumbers, apples, seedless grapes, bananas, strawberries, limes, lemons, blueberries, and pears.

The options are endless. There are hundreds of different permutations you can experiment with and there’s no right or wrong way to do it.

However the Nutribullet recipe book I got with the device suggests to follow the following formula:

50% leafy greens (i.e. spinach, kale) 50% fruit
Optional ‘boost’ (i.e. nuts, maca powder, goji berries etc)

One of the most banging juices I’ve made to date consisted of:

  • 1 pear
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • About 8 strawberries
  • Thin slice of lime

From there, I put all the ingredients into the plastic Nutribullet cup, filled it with water, and blended it for about half a minute.

Result = piff.

If it’s hot outside, add ice and it’s even better.

After a workout where you’re feeling hot and sweaty, the best feeling in the world is drinking an ice-cold juice with hints of citrus. When it gets really hot in the summer these will be a game-changer.

I’ve been using the juicer for about 2 weeks now and I have noticed some immediate effects.

  1. Less inclination to eat garbage. The natural sugars and sweetness satisfy my sweet tooth sufficiently. I don’t have to eat trash after I have one of my shakes.
  2. Higher libido. ‘Nuff said.
  3. Better skin. I’ve been told I look more tanned even though I’ve barely been in the sun. That’s consistent with findings by scientists who have concluded that a high intake of certain fruits and veg can actuallt give you a ‘tan’ superior to the type induced by sunbathing.
  4. More energy throughout the day. Having energy is so underrated. Being tired and groggy can ruin your whole day. I’ve noticed that two green juices per day makes me feel amazing.

Just a note by the way – though you can make green juices really tasty, by and large they will mostly just be decent. At the end of the day, as long as it tastes decent and gets the job done, that’s the main thing.

If you’re looking for something equivalent to a Mcdonald’s strawberry milkshake, then you’re in for a disappointment.

There are some critics (usually sloppy and unhealthy themselves) who claim that eating lots of fruit will make you fat and diabetic due to the sugars contained in them.. I call those people idiots.

Nobody gets fat or diabetic because of natural fruits.

Anyway guys, I hope this post has given you some food for thought (pun intended).

I’m still experimenting with numerous different types of fruit and veg, and it feels amazing knowing that I’m drinking something that is actually improving my health and my life.

If you want to take control of your health and your life take action NOW!

You can buy a Nutribullet here.

Peace!
