Rheumatoid Arthritis and Dieting V

I’ve lost another six and a half pounds. Yay for me. I started a juicing routine. My dad does it whenever he wants to loose weight. He lost eighty pounds a few years ago with it.

I can loose a pound a day when I stick to it regularly. It is a very good way to cleanse.

So here’s what I put in the juice. I have the perfect formula. I finally got it to where I don’t have to choke it down while trying not to vomit.

Here’s what I use. And some links to the health benefits.

I use 2 green apples. 2 red. http://www.whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=15#healthbenefits

1 Large beet. Stems and all. http://www.ezhealthydiet.com/beet-nutrition.html

1and a 1/2 to 2 pounds of carrots http://www.whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=21#healthbenefits

Half a bunch of fresh spinach http://www.whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=43#healthbenefits

2 lemons http://www.whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=27

This makes about 32 ounces of juice. I really should do it at least twice a day. But I usually only manage once. Its good to have before a meal. It fills you up more. Celery and cucumbers are also really good to juice with. But they’re both too hard on my upchuck reflex. So I leave them out.

Total weight lost= 10.5 pounds
