    Juicing Is Bad for You and the Earth
    Pulverizing food until all the nutrients have been squeezed out is a dangerous fad. There’s a reason we’ve been cooking what we eat for several thousand years.

    There’s a reason your mother told you to eat your vegetables, not juice them.

    But no one seems to be listening these days. According to IBIS World, the market for juices and smoothies is $2 billion annually and expected to grow by hundreds of millions of dollars over the next few years. You can scarcely go a week without hearing about a coworker or celebrity being on a “juice cleanse,” either.

    Juicing is not just another fad though: it is a privileged, wasteful form of food consumption that’s worse for you than cooking and bad for the environment; juicing is the triumph of marketing over science.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sounds like just the thing a narcissistic, entitled, overpaid celebrity would do.

    The title of your thread is couple of words too long.

    i used to make the best tasting juice. granny smith apples, tart pears, tofu (for thickness) and ice. it was freaking great tasting and gave me a nice sugar buzz. one slight problem, my farts could kill a rat. so i stopped because i like females!

    Dr. Agus (who Robin credits with helping her beat cancer) told her on the air that juicing and colonics had no health benefits. Robin told him he was wrong and argued with him. The narcissism scale doesn't go high enough to measure that fat ignorant cow.

    Take out most of the fiber, most of the nutrients present in the skin, concentrate the sugar then let it sit around so the remaining nutrients degrade rapidly and what do you have? Juicing. After 30 minutes the juice loses much of it's beneficial nutrients, so if you haven't just made it, don't bother.

    On the other hand, I'll slam a bunch of shit into a Vitamix and hit 11 for something closer to a cold slurry, and very hearty. Yes, you are chewing your smoothie but I fucking love it. And I'm not talking about all that pussy fruit. I'm talking spinach, kale, celery, parsley, garlic, flax, some Tazo Passion tea for tartness and much needed liquid and some full fat greek yogurt for gut-bugs, a handful of blueberries and maybe some actual bugs, twigs and dirt...ok, not those last three. That's not juice, that's a meal

    All of Robin's scams go under the category of 'magical thinking'

    I think you're talking about a smoothie. You can't juice tofu.

    I just had a cheeseburger and a coke. Feeling fine. Following it up with a handful of vitamins. Fuck the juicing.
