I Gained Weight From Juicing Too Many Fruits

Hello. My name is Kate Davies and when I first heard about juicing, I thought it would be the solution to all of my health and weight problems. I saw a few things on television about the benefits of juicing and I decided to buy a juicer and get going.

I bought the Jack LaLanne juicer and fruits and vegetables to get started. At first, I was just making fruit juices. I made a very simple orange and pear juice that I really enjoyed drinking. It was refreshing and my favorite drink to have in the morning before I went to the gym. I also made a really good pineapple strawberry juice that was very tart. This was my favorite juice because it gave me a good pick me up during the day.

As much as I enjoyed my fruit juices, the people at the gym told me that I needed to make vegetable juices in order to get the full effect and benefits of juicing. They gave me some of their recipes to try out. I started making vegetable juices with a carrot and celery juice and I was immediately disgusted. It was repulsive. I would have rather eaten the carrots and celery. I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to drink it.

A friend of mine made me a kale, beet root and ginger juice which also made me want to vomit. I had never experienced something so disgusting in my life. I couldn’t understand the point of drinking these vegetables. As it turned out, I stopped making the vegetable juices and continued making the fruit juices, but I gained weight.

I probably gained weight because I was taking in so much more fruit than normal and I wasn’t burning the calories from the natural sugars in the fruit. I haven’t juiced since the weight gain.

Overall, I enjoyed drinking my fruit juices, but hated the vegetable juices. I ended up gaining weight and have to admit that I didn’t notice much of a difference in how I felt after juicing. I think juicing is more of a fad than anything; you can make good, tasty fruit juices with a decent juicer, but I have to admit that juicing isn’t for everyone and it’s certainly not for me!
