Is it true that Green Star/ Green Power, Champion, and Omega make the better juicers, and the names I'm familiar with (Braun, Krups, KitchenAid, Cuisinart) are junk? Some are 80 RPM, some are 8000 RPM (VTEC?). What gives?
Other issues appear to be the $250-450 prices, and that some aren't capable of juicing citrus or grasses. Are 3 varieties of juicers required to do this properly?
You want a juicer that squeezes the juice out (screw type) rather than rips it out (chopper & centrifuge). Naturally the good ones cost money. The juice has to be fresh or you lose all the vitamins etc so shop bought won't do.
Might be easier just to go on a fruit diet for a week than the full juice thing unless you want to clear your gut of solids. (I recently picked up a good cleanser in India which removed all food solids from my stomach in a very spectacular manner and I lost weight as well but it wasn't very pleasant)
I second Tom's recommendation for Steve Meyerowitz book. I however reckon that juice fasting every now and then is great. The first two days are the hardest getting used to not eating , but after that I felt fantastic. I have fasted for 4 days. Occasionally I fast for a day. The problem is I love my food too much. I've got a Champion juicer. If you can get the chance to fast , and have the discipline, absolutely , - try it . Brendan
