Did the title sell ya, or the dancing kitties? ;)

Howdy fellow juicers! No massive ground-breaking epiphanies to impart today, just wanted to quickly stop by and give you kind and gentle folks a heads up on a few New Year's sales and Uber cool discounts. If you've frequented the site you'll remember the summer deals, well they just got sweeter. Essentially, there's some price breaks and sales tag slashes below on some favorite healthy juicing recipes classic coolness that really will blow your mind. So if any of the following concepts appeal to you this coming year...
  • saving cash, 
  • shrinking a waistline, 
  • finding a healthy diet,
  • increasing energy and vitality
  • upgrading your old, decrepit, rusted, cheap juicer
...read on. There are some deals here exclusive only to my humble site, and not to sound too informercially, they won't last long.

First off, if you need to finally grab or upgrade juicers, the Breville Juice and Blend is now exactly 25% - or $150.04 cheaper at Amazon. No, that's not a misprint. $150.00+ off the regular retail price! They are fully stocked, but my advice would be to stop procrastinating already and head there to grab yours before Breville comes to their senses. Folks, that juicer is just about the best available, trust me, I own it. It is a big, giant relief to you in the kitchen once you start juicing, for too many reasons to list here. That thing is the most useful and cool looking appliance I have in my kitchen. I've said it before, the Juice and Blend is to juicers as Bugatti is to automobiles. 

The next great and wonderful New Year's deal, you ask? Mike at Truth About Abs is doing a solid for me - and offering his award winning program Truth About Abs for a trial period - for literally pennies. Click here if you have excess fat to lose or a shape to regain, because T.A.A. is quite simply a nutrition, fat loss, and abs sculpting Uber-program. Don't let the name fool you either, Mike's program is as much about proper diet and nutrition as it is about abs and how to get them. BTW ladies, Mike's program is as useful for you as it is to the fellas. Oh, and as it is with everything Mike does, T.A.A. completely guaranteed.

Last but certainly not least, the Diet Solutions sale is making a second appearance here at Ye' Ol' Juicing For Health blog. Diet Solutions program rarely has sales, so you should play the lottery tomorrow because this is obviously that "once in a Blue Moon" they've all been talking about. Considering the value contained within Diet Solutions, you can't go wrong even if you're a certified nutritionist. Unfortunately this New Year's bargain is only on until early February, so my advice is don't wait. I'm not joking when I say sale prices for DS are a rare and wonderful thing. Check out the info/ad block up and to the right side of this site, or simply click one of the links within this article. You'll find an informative free video that only takes a few minutes to absorb with 0 obligation to buy/enter emails/ or any other nonsense. There's really nothing much to say about the Diet Solutions program that Oprah, Hollywood stars galore, and millions of us regular folks haven't already emphatically stated. Diet Solutions is to health and nutrition as James Cameron is to big budget blockbuster movies. Not terribly long ago I completed a comprehensive review of the Diet Solutions - which was included in an international publication. I won't bore you with a reprint here, so just allow that I wholeheartedly approve of that program, and I have since it was developed. I use it almost verbatim within my own overweight client base, with great success.

So unless that bikini bod looks great already, and/or you already feel like a million or so bucks with energy to spare, click the links or the pix to the right, and get your booty in gear, yes?! Summer is past, the holiday eating binges over, and the ides of March loom, which means all of those unnecessary holiday calories will soon make your bikinis and swim trunks very cranky! In fact, put on that swimsuit or summer wear now, go to the mirror and ask yourself; "any spillage?" OR, skip your morning and mid-day coffee tomorrow, wait about 30 minutes, and ask yourself; "do I still have all the energy I need for today?" My guess is many of you could easily find some area that would benefit from a quality juicer and a great nutrition program. Health is far more than just a few visits to the gym after all.

Whatever your needs might be folks, get off that couch, away from that desk, and get healthy yes? Summer will come again, trust me on that. Funny thing is it happens every year. Prepare now and bask in a sea of awesome come June 1st. Even if you already look like a Calvin Klein model, your health is still vitally important. All your friends and family (and me!) want nothing but to see you more healthy, vibrant, and living a long, happy life. So take advantage of these New Year's price cuts if you need them, and get started on 2012 the right way!


Juicing For Weight Loss... Myth or Fact?

If you enjoy this post, sign up for free email or RSS updates
 More often than not lately I've been receiving emails about using juices and juicing recipes for weight loss. Maybe that's because The Biggest Loser is a bloody popular show. Maybe it's because people are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Either way, I love it when I see that people are sincerely looking for solutions to their health issues.

Since I've only barely touched on the concept in the past, here's my effort to explain the co-relation between juicing and weight loss, as well as some truly groundbreaking advice on how to properly and effectively shed pounds.

We now set off to examine the ubiquitous question: Can juicing really help me to lose weight?

The one word answer is yes. However life is rarely summed up by a one word answer, as most of us know. The longer, more detailed relation between juicing and permanent weight loss is this: juicing is a lifestyle change and so much more than just a specific method of shedding pounds. Of course by beginning your journey with an Uber awesome juicer + a juice fast followed by the award winning 14 day raw food diet (as I've recommended in the past), 2 things will happen fast: 1) you will lose substantial water weight quickly, and 2) you will re-boot your metabolism quicker than NBC cancels good TV shows. It should also become obvious that when you replace all those daily sodas+high sugar+high calorie beverages with home made juices, you offer your body not only a significant reduction in empty calories, but a consistent, vital nutrient boost. Where juicing is concerned, it is more within the entire nutritional outlook you adopt that allows you lasting weight maintenance/reduction benefits. There isn't a juicer alive who fails to watch their nutritional intake a lot more closely after they adopt juicing in their life.

Within my most recent emails, folks are simply asking how best to lose weight quickly, regardless of how it's done. In fact I always get these emails within the few short months before summer, or close to the holidays. Funny how that is ;). It's actually not funny, it's pretty obvious that the beach body, shirtless and/or bikini summers really do loom large no matter what time of year. I'd dare say it's more important to be concentrating on nutrition and juicing during the holidays, since that's notoriously the time when we all over eat to amazing proportions. Well folks, if losing weight and/or getting ripped is your main focus - now or come summer - regardless the technique, the next few paragraphs are all but crucial to point you in the right direction(s) and help you get well on the way to lasting health and weight management.

One of the best products for weight loss online I know of is, of course, The Truth About Abs. Don't let the name fool ya, it's easily as effective a weight loss program as it is for getting ripped abs - and it's customized for both men and women. It's an overall health home run, really. I'm almost sure you have seen the ads for T.A.A. all over the net; in fact I have my own little ad on this blog, which wouldn't be here if I didn't totally approve of this system having used it in my own training system. This program is among the top selling weight loss and ab sculpting courses available online, with bloody good reason. Plainly as I can put it, this program shrinks the mid-section radically. I highly recommend you at least check it out. By clicking this link (or the tiny ad - up and to the right ;)) there's a limited and Uber cool trial offer available, with a complete 60 day 100% guarantee. Not to mention the offer itself is already dirt cheap (exclusive to my site) - because I happen to know the developer personally.

All I can say is if you are looking to lose belly fat, the Truth About Abs program works like gangbusters. It is absolutely proven to shed belly fat in a proper way - and not by scamming you into some medically questionable pill solution or some wacky "ab machine" (you know, those awful infomercial-esque, medieval looking gadgets)
For overall weight loss and a nutritional "rework", I can't even begin to describe the massive benefits you will find within The Diet Solution Program. (Yes << that's a "check it out" link ;)) D.S.P. is another online best seller that helps shed pounds fast and in a healthy way. If I'm not mistaken Diet Solution has bested some extremely popular nutrition programs in both '09 and '10 University health and nutrition studies. This system is so good many trainers adopt it as a staple for their own programs (me included). 

Let me just qualify right now: I never steer my own clients or readers to anything that does not absolutely work when followed properly. My reputation is everything to me, both as a personal trainer and as a successful fitness writer. Quite simply, these two weight loss/nutrition programs are proven to be effective time and time again. I have seen both in action by implementing them within my own fat shredding programs as a personal trainer. In fact I dare say that most of my overweight clients, desperate to shed excess calories, have succeeded from a combination of myself, The Truth About Abs and The Diet Solution Program.

Having said all that, this is a juicing site, not a weight loss site. So here's what I say to anyone who has already decided to lose their weight through juicing: You should definitely begin your efforts with a juice fast. I have my own juice fasting and detox book, however it's exclusive - still - to a popular fitness magazine. Until I'm contractually released I can't promote it here on Ye' Ol' Juicing Recipes Blog. In the meantime if you want to find some very decent juice fasting programs there are some excellent books and manuals on the subject available at Amazon. For example, have a look at  The Ten Day Master Cleanse for all the right answers on effective fasting techniques - complete with goodies ;). I have the included manual for reference in my own research library, and while it's not anywhere near as sexy as my own juice fasting program (biased much???) it does an excellent job walking anyone interested through a good and safe juicing fast.

To be blunt/realistic about the subject of weight loss, losing and keeping off the extra pounds is an effort that takes real commitment and a solid work ethic. If it was easy, well folks, we'd all be Calvin Klein models. The worst way to attempt weight loss lay in trying to do so without the proper tools. It is a good way to get depressed, frustrated, and eventually give up, and it's for those reasons why I've offered the tools and programs mentioned above. Those systems and products provide inexpensively exactly what you need to help ensure results will come from your effort, not disappointment or frustration. Simply put, they work, as the juicing lifestyle works, without a doubt. Specific to juicing, aside from the weight loss benefits, it is easily one of the healthiest, quickest, and easiest lifestyle changes you can make, nutritionally speaking. The changes in your energy level and vigor alone is worth every penny you spend on juicers. Plus if you're a Starbucks addict like my wife was, you'll pay for your quality juicer in two months by simply replacing those expensive lattes with home made juice. Don't believe me yet? Ask this guy.

In the music business there's an expression used when trying to trace an audio problem. I only know this because I've trained a few musicians, (so don't expect my new CD coming out soon lol ;)). The saying is this: Input Equals Output. Folks, never forget that, because it is pure genius when talking about health and weight maintenance. Coffee, Coke or Pepsi, whole milks ... well just think about what this stuff is doing to the inside of your body! Consider for a second just how much better your body will feel when it gets beneficial vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, as opposed to empty calories and harmful narcotic and refined sugar substances such as caffeine, high fructose corn syrup,e.t.c... It's truly a no-brainer folks.

'Nuf said. You have what you need for an informed opinion (I hope). While you're looking over the links and posts above, below is my usual recipe addition. This one I often use for super fuel before a good work out. Hope you try it out!! (Add creatine to the mix if you're really hitting the gym hard)
Super Fuel

1/2 watermelon
1 lemon
5 oranges
1 can frozen pineapple concentrate
