I will never be a total vegan as I love my lean meats and the protein sources for building muscle. Egg whites, chicken breast, sirloin, roast beef, salmon etc.
Ive never liked green veggies but i just got hooked on juicing. Someone mentioned earlier that the fruits hide the taste of the green veggies and i find that true.
Me and the wife got a juicer last week and ive been drinking at least 1-2 juices a day. Ill put kale, cucumber, celery, oranges, strawberry, kiwi, apples etc in it .
Really cant get much healthier than this. I recommend it. Ive found that even in the past when i ate better and got fit before I still was tired more than I am now. This juice is really helping my energy levels. Ive lost and gained weight a 100 times over the years and im big into strength training and running so i know my body. The juice is def helping with the energy levels!!!!!!
So this is a good way for people who dont like veggies to get them.
I drink the juice along with my lean meats for most my nutrition.
I know some people are totally against meat. But imo you cant go wrong with nuts, fruits, veggies, and lean meats. Unmodified If it grows, swims, flys or walks its ok.edit on 22-2-2013 by hellbjorn012 because: (no reason given)edit on 22-2-2013 by hellbjorn012 because: (no reason given)edit on 22-2-2013 by hellbjorn012 because: (no reason given)

If you want a green juice without the fructose in it on occasion, put your normal veggies in it (kale, carrots, celery ect...) then cut a lime in half and throw half or all of it in the juicer (rind and all) it knocks out the bitter taste from the greens, and gives you a juice with less sugar. Carrots have sugar in them too but they will increase your energy throughout the day, not just a two or three hour effect like coffee.
Thanks im gonna give that a try today for my last juice. I got some limes.
Yes you are obese according to medical standards you could use to lose 15lbs or so, and also you seemed to be stress, so why don't you relax more and stop worrying about others.

So there seems to be a problem with Americans in the world today. Almost 70% are either overweight or obese.
That number seems almost unimaginable, until you go to the grocery store, or the superstore of your choosing (walmart, target...ect) and look around at all of the people. One can easily see that a frightening number of people are not close to a reasonable weight.
Personally, its shocking.
How can this happen? Is it cultural? Geographical? Genetic? Socioeconomic? Evolutionary? There are a list of reasons that go on a country mile, but I'm not buying it. The main reason...drum roll please...is LAZINESS
There is no good reason that an adult in America today can't be at a reasonable weight.(yes, i understand there can be extenuating circumstances) Its about time overweight people start taking responsibility for themselves and stop blaming this that and the other thing. Its time to get off the sofa and drop that gut. Even a minimal amount of light physical activity can have profound effects on the human body! Its remarkable how easily the body can lose weight.
Dont believe me? Well i was in the same boat as many Americans not so long ago, just over a year. 6' and over 300lbs because i was just plain lazy. Junk food, tv and sodas. Now I'm 220, stronger, more muscular, more fit, more endurance than ever.
But according to some height/weight charts, I would be considered obese, which certainly is not the case.
So what gives? I would love to hear some intelligent insight on this subject matter!
mods, move if needed

Ex-smokers and ex-alcoholics are the absolute WORST at this, it's as if they still miss the lifestyle but feel the incessant need to bash those who still enjoy it so they don't feel uncomfortable about denying themselves.
