What is Juicing?

Juicing, as you might have guessed, is simply using whole fruits and vegetables to obtain juice. While this is usually accomplished using a juicing machine, you can also do it by hand, although it will take substantially longer. Juicing leaves the pulp (full of insoluble fiber) behind so all you are left with are soluble fiber, water and nutrients of the fruit.

The question often arises about the removal of fiber when it comes to juicing. Insoluble fiber serves to slow down digestion of your food. This can be both good and bad; it will slow the absorption of sugar, but it also slows the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Fiber also serves to make you feel full. Again this can be good and bad, depending on your goal. Looking at a popular juicing recipe, it might call for 5 oranges, 2 cucumbers, 6 celery stalks and kale. Eating this much food at once will give you plenty of vitamins and minerals, but will also make you feel sick and overstuffed, assuming you can eat it all. Juicing this fruit allows you to take in all of the essential nutrients without over eating.
