Get on the healthy wave!
Everyone is trying to be a healthier, new person. This means diet and exercise. Start with baby steps. Don’t overwhelm yourself, or you may end up quitting too soon. Try power walking either by yourself or with a friend. Graduate to jogging. Join a gym, again with a friend. Having a friend, encourages both of you to stick with your goals.
What should you eat?
Exercise is important, but so is healthy eating. Throw away all those snacks you have. They are full of starches, sugars, and salts. Go out and buy healthy foods, such as mixed greens for salad, nuts, vegetables, fruits, and lean meats. No more fried foods either.
Have you heard of juicing?
What a great way to kick start your day. It is all natural, with nothing added to your recipe. No extra sugars, salts, or hidden additives. The best part is none of the vitamins and minerals of fruits and vegetables, are lost, as when you cook them. But there are some rules to follow, when juicing.
What are the rules?
Don’t too much of one fruit. This will make it have to many natural sugars, and calories. Remember you want to cut calories too. Add some veggies in with each mixture. Watch out for seeds too. You don’t want to choke on any unforeseen seeds from the fruits. Don’t forget protein, or you will lose muscle mass. If you have a juicer that leaves behind the pulp (protein source) then make sure to use that excess in some other recipe, such or muffins, or soup stock.
What are other ingredients to use?
To supplement some protein in your juicing diet, you can add all sorts of good things. If you are eating regularly and juicing, then water is fine. However if you are doing strictly juicing, then you need protein. Some protein ingredients can be, almond milk, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, flax seed and more. Remember to use in moderation, or again, there will be too many calories added.
Do I need medical advice?
If you are on any medications, it is recommended to speak with your doctor before juicing. Some vegetables, and fruits have vitamins that may affect your medications. If you add to much kale, or spinach, which are high in Vitamin K, it may change the affects of blood thinner medications. Also as mentioned earlier, too much sugars in some fruits is bad for diabetics, so ask your doctor.
Hate green veggies!
It’s okay to hate green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, kale and more. Now when you add them to fruits, they taste better, and you get the added vitamins you are missing by not eating them. Just look up some recipes, on proper mixtures, and you will you will be on you way to a healthier, new you. There are more reviews on awesome juicers all over the net.
Remember the rules!
Check with your doctor before starting. Use fruits in moderation, so as to not add too may calories, and sugars. Don’t forget to add protein! Have fun!
