Fact: training alone doesn't improve your overall health.
Diet plays an important role too. You should try to avoid consuming too much acid-forming food in order for your body to easily maintain its slightly alkaline state. Which is crucial if you want to stay healthy.
As I have written before, I have been embarking on a juicing journey late last year when I discovered that my immune system has been deteriorating. About 5 months down the line and I am happy to report that my health has improved. I don't catch the flu and colds easily. And when I do, I recover faster than I did before. There are still some problems with eczema, but the severity has definitely lessened.
Knowing that I now have taken juicing seriously and have juiced almost every single day I have decided to take it a step further and invested in a decent juicer. Specifically a silent juicer, which presses the fruits/vegetables to obtain the juice which unlike blending, preserves their nutrients and enzyme.
Plus, it's faster and easier. Makes life a whole lot simpler.
This is what I juice on a typical day: cucumbers, some kind of leafy vegetable, and celery. Carrots I include on occasion due to its higher sugar content. And I no longer juice tomatoes as I have recently discovered that it belongs to the nightshade category and as a person with eczema, this is definitely a no go.
I apologize for the shoddy quality of my pictures. I was never good at taking pictures. But posing in pictures... now that's a different matter. But I digress. So this is my slow juicer. Pricey, but I got it at a discount through a group but and it has been one of my better investments. Just look at the amount of juice I yielded. It's definitely much more than if I blended the vegetables.
