I'm on a new health kick and want to start juicing. I just started researching juicers and thought id ask here if anyone has any experience with them. I really don't want to spend over $300 on the machine. Does anyone have any recommendations on best machine for the money, tips or favorite recipes for juicing? Thanks in advance.
Absolutely the best thread title ever...

Bama boards should have great advice. Maybe a visit to Tuscaloosa.
I have the Jake Lalanne juice 100 bucks lifetime warranty.It is a great juicer and worth every penny.
No need to spend $300 on a machine, I'm sure you can find someone to poke you in the ass for free.
Jeff any suggestions?
I hear this guy is pretty good at juicing...
Qtr brick, half a brick, whole brick.. Aye!
Wow I thought you meant something else, just by reading the title.
The other juices can go .
Walk softly but carry a big stick.
Beat me to it.
I have the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth juicer. $60 @ walmart online. Works good. As far as recipes, I always start with veggies and add a little fruit if needed. Cheaper and healthier. Sweet potatoes and carrots juice well and add sweetness. Cheap too.
Don't let any documentary or article sell you bs about what type of juicer you "should" or "need" to have. I have a 50 dollar General Electric "juice extractor" from Walmart and it works excellently. I only went cheap to experiment with juicing in case I didn't like it or couldn't handle it. It really works. It's not a gimmick its brilliant. As far as juice recipies go I only use one and its delicious (when u get used to it after about 3 days of doing it). My recipe makes about 16 ounces which is perfect and actually leaves you feeling not full but satisfied. You WONT be hungry after drinking them bc your body gets all of the nutrients you have starved it of for years. In order I juice 6 to 8 kale green leaves, a small granny smith apple, a half or whole lemon, half or quarter of a cucumber, two carrots, one roma tomato, and a hand full of spinach. If you can handle ginger root use a SUPER SMALL PIECE. It makes me wanna barf and totally ruins the taste of the juice so I just dont use it anymore. My tip is to never make more than you will drink right away or with in about 10 mins. It starts going bad as soon as it is extracted. There are efficient methods of storing in mason jars but its a hassle and not worth the time. Also one really important tip is that I drink it over a handful of ice. I have to. The temp is what makes it refreshing. "They" say its "best" to drink room temp but thats a really good way to be discouraged and have a bad first experience. When its warm or room temp it just has a real earthy taste to me. I use a half cup of ice and chug that shit! No point in sipping! It aint tea!
Steer clear of sugary ass ingredients like too many sweet fruits like strawberries and tangerines though they are really good for a treat. Whether its fructose or sucrose sugar is sugar and that sht makes you fat and causes glycogen spikes which leads to crashes and being burnt out. I juice twice a day. Once for breakfast once for dinner and I only eat lean meat for protein like chicken and salmon, and good simple carbs for glycogen before lifts followed by a protein shake (very low on sugar) 30 mins post workout. I occasionally eat oatmeal for breakfast. Especially if I lift early ill need the carbs. For every pound of lean muscle you build your body burns up to 50 calories a day to power that muscle. So not sure if you're on a fat burn regimen or a muscle building regimen but some people are simply trying to lose body fat and think weights will only bulk them up when they want to slim down but weights and the afterburn from it burns a lot of calories and we all know caloric deficit is the only way to lose fat over time. Ok im done ranting. :]
Also when juicing juice the soft leafy stuff first followed by the tougher more rigid items. It makes your juicer easy to clean. My cheapo juicer has two speeds for the different textured ingredients. A lot of more expensive ones dont. Thats funny bc the slower you juice things the more juice you will yield. Especially on the soft ingredients the super fast settings are counter productive.
80 percent veggie and 20 percent fruit.I do 64 ounces of mean green which is cucumber, kale, green apple, celery.Then go to the gym and do about 5 miles on the treadmill and only eat fish and veggies.No beef, chicken or pork for me but that's just my choice.I do a ten day juice fast every month.I feel better than I have ever felt in my life but its not for everyone.
Chicken is fine. Not sure why one would steer clear of that unless its just a food they dont like. Organic skinless chicken breast is basically 97 percent protein 3 percent fat. I'm picky on fish but I'll eat wild caught salmon 3 times a week. I love it. All that other farm raised stuff is poisonous roided out, growth hormone packed death sponges.
Chicken is just not for me but to each his own.I was 250 im down to 215 so what im doing works for me and I feel great.
I knew the title would catch a few lol.
My diet sucks which is why i want to do the juicer. Im sitting at 240 right now and need to be 210 to 220. Im hitting the gym four days a week and jogging at the beach on the weekends. Ive heard great things about this so far so i figured id give it a shot.
lajan, dukeoden & Capeflgator185702, thanks, those were the answers i was looking for. upvoted I will try both of your recipes. lajan, im with you on the chugging it thing. I knew i would have to because i hate most vegetables
If all this fails its HGH all the way

Yep and it is good bro.
Once you start making the drinks you like you won't have to drink it real fast.I take my time with mines cause I make juices I enjoy to drink.When your fasting you should make drinks you enjoy no sense in drinking nasty juices.
Also ginger in used is juices cause it is good for your stomach.I starting my juice fast on a weekend cause it had me running to the bathroom.The ginger will help with the bathroom issues.

This is a very popular new thing, and can be very healthy. One piece of important advice is to make sure you get enough protein throughout the day especially if you are lifting.
Your muscle is fueled by protein, and if you don't have enough through out the day you body will burn muscle before fat or carbs which you don't want. Losing weight and losing fat are not always the same thing. That is why people that starve themselves have a very drastic drop in weight because they are burning up alot of their muscle which roughly breaks down to a 3-1 ration. Sothey loose alot more weight but it hurts them long term.
The recommend amount is 1gram of protein per 1lbs of lean muscle. And if you are counting calories, find you base amount needed for your weight and subtract on average 500 aday. Some people like to change it up so their body doesn't get use to it and subract 300 one day and 700 the next.
Need had a shake like these, I am going to have to check it out.
