Anyone have any success with Drew Canole and his fit life.tv program? Any problems, reactions? I am considering his juicing for weight loss, but wanted to pick everyone's brain before making the decision. Thanks y'all!

I'm not familiar with that program, but I can give you my views on juicing: making fruits and vegetables into juice allows you to consume more servings worth of calories.  Essentially, this is the sugar in the fruits, leaving behind the fibre.  For weight loss, you need fibre.  You also need to control sugar intake.  In my opinion, this would be the opposite of what juicing would do.  I make smoothies with the whole fruit or vegetable, so I get the calories, primarily from sugar, but I also still get the fibre and other nutrients.  Just my humble opinion, but I just don't see how juicing can be beneficial.

Thank for the reply Jeff. I'm not looking at a juice only cleanse. He believes it is to be used as per say supplementation. I would still consume whole foods for fiber, and stay away from juicing fruits to limit sugar intake. For instance... juice cabbage, kale, ginger beets, spinach, lemon and small amounts of carrots due to their sugar.

I think a morning juice packed with nutrients etc is good for you, but I'm not a fan of meal replacement drinks. The body is meant to consume food, and the replacements are over-priced nonsense compared to a balanced meal plan.

if it's to complement your meals, like a protein shake does, though I don't see the harm.
