i asked for, and received, a juicer for Christmas! i hadn't juiced before, but was very curious and interested to add juicing to my healthy diet. and i must say.... i'm enjoying it so very much! the benefits are that you can consume a variety of fruits and vegetables that perhaps you wouldn't ordinarily eat as well as the fact that you consume MORE than what you'd normally eat. also, it's a great natural and healthy way to enhance weight loss. rather than fill up on so called 'breakfast bars' that are full of processed chemicals, sugars and not-so-natural flavors, have a veggie/fruit juice for breakfast, a dark, leafy green salad (preferably with chicken or fish or egg for protein) and a healthy dinner (i.e.; fish or chicken with brown rice or quinoa and some veggies). add a couple pieces of fruit and/or a handful of nuts into the mix for snacks and you're on your way!
here are some links to some websites i've found useful:
