Blending/Juicing



Something to consider... Although getting more fruits and veggies is extremely important.  Juicing/blending fruits and veggies actually processes food and allows your body to ingest more calories than it could if you ate it whole.

Although a great way of getting a lot of calories at once, your body ultimately does less work since the blender breaks down the food for you. End result is your body has less work to do and your blood sugar increases much quicker than if you were to eat the food whole.

For those trying to put on weight and need an increased calorie intake, juicing and blending can certainly be useful.  But for everyone else looking to manage or reduce their body fat, controlling blood sugar/insulin is the key to managing body composition.
