Juicing fad comes full circle

Unless you add something like avocado, you’re also missing out on fat-soluble vitamins in a juice diet.

Chewing, like you’d experience in crunching on a carrot or biting into an apple, also offers satiety that the brain frequently craves. Juice, as a liquid, just doesn’t satisfy that craving for solid food.

And while some of the most restrictive juice diets will cause followers to lose weight, they do so because of reduced caloric intake.

Most nutritional experts will tell you that a diet that is too restrictive on caloric intake and overall food choices is difficult to stick with for any length of time.

It all goes back to what I like to call the “Mom’s Handbook” of sayings — everything in moderation — and that includes juice.
