Can we just use a normal blender for the vegetables? I have quite a good one. Or does it need to be a juicer?

also are there certain vegetables I shouldn't use or can it be any?

how much juice do I consume...a pint?

thanks

There are pros and cons to both. Juicing leafy green vegetables creates a concentrated juice with little calories but leafy greens tend to contain high amounts of oxalates which could contribute to kidney stones in some people. Cruciferous vegetables(kale, broccoli, cabbage etc.) are high in thyroid suppressing compounds and if you eat too much of them everyday, especially as raw/uncooked, it could potentially begin to lower your thyroid hormones. When you blend vegetables, you still keep the fibres and rest of the nutrients that's attached to the fibre.

 

I normally only juice hard vegetables such as carrots and beetroot which are otherwise impossible to consume in high amounts because of high calories. Anything else like fruits and leafy greens, I just blend them into a smoothie.

So I just found this today and had lots of questions, lol. Hopefully someone can help out.

1. I don't understand what the posters above mean about juicer vs blender. I have the NutriBullet, is that good enough?

2. The sweet potato and butternut squash is raw? Really?

3. Instead of olive oil/flaxseed/etc for fats, can you use avocado?

4. I've found in the past (at least with the NutriBullet), without water, the veggie juice is too thick (need to spoon it out!). What's the harm in a little water to make it go down quicker?

5. Is there harm in adding a single piece of fruit just to make it taste that little bit better?

6. Is the B5 supplement essential? 500mg still seems like a lot when the RDI is like 5-10mg?

7. Does the veggie juice have to be consumed on an empty stomach or can I eat something else with it?

8. Can someone elaborate on why the OP uses powdered wheatgerm? What is it and why use it?

Hello,

Please Advice dosage. I see everyone combining both L-caritine and B5 both what are your dosages?????

I currently am taking two pills of B5 and 1 pill (500 mag) of L-caritine (500mg)...is this enough? I've only started recently but no new breaks outs...So i don't know. Please advise appropriate dosage.

I once juiced a sweet potato and it kind of burned my mouth...or something. Pretty nasty.

I just wanna throw this out there, I did similar juicing a while ago and while it did help me lose weight, it did not help my skin. I did the same kind of juicing while avoiding sugars...however I didn't know about high glycemic indexes and high carbs and all that, so I was still eating g stuff like cereal and rice cakes. My opinion is, it could help some people but ypu may have to completely change your diet in addition to what's listed here. At least it can do no harm so I'd say try out if you have a mind to.

I'm planning to start this method as fast as possible. I'm right now in the beginning of my second cicle of roacutan and I was searching for some effective alternative treatment. MAN, this is what I was looking for! I'll stop my treatment and do this for this 2 months and see if it works for me. 

I've read the most important parts of the post and all I can see is reasonable and logic advises.

I've been creeping this post for the past week and I am heading out to the store to purchase my L-Carnitine. Ive started taking my B Vitamins again (past week).I have noticed drinking vegetables does improve my acne, so i am excited to see how this routine will benefit my skin! I am still quite depressed from my recent  breakout which has been going on and on for the past 2 months.:(

Hi Tex.

 

Yes, I had oily skin.

 

However, I very much doubt that just a single low dose of 500mg is going to have any effect on the body yet, let alone cause an effect that you could actually see, such as new spots or extra-dry skin. The mistake most people make is that they get focussed on the micro ups and downs in their skin quality (which everyone has, not just acne sufferers) before waiting to establish the macro picture over several weeks. That is the only meaningful test of any regime: is my skin generally better or worse over the longer term?

 

As I recall when I first started my regime, I was still getting cysts two to three weeks in. This was a legacy of my previous lifestyle, but I could have easily thought "oh, it's not working" or "it's causing more zits, not fewer!" and quit.

 

To take another example: when I was into body building, I used to take creatine, which is a known acne-aggravator (I didn't know this at the time). For a few weeks, there was no effect on my skin, and then it went haywire, absolutely ballistic. So, even a known acne aggravator takes a while to kick in.

 

The thing about B5 is there is evidence to support its effectiveness. The same cannot be said about all the other remedies touted on these boards, from evening primrose oil to lemon juice to royal jelly to turmeric powder to apple cider vinegar, etc, etc. I prefer to take something that has some basis in clinical research. That's why I think it's important to give B5 a decent trial period to see if it can help.

 

Having said all that, different types of L-Carnitine are more potent that others and magnify the effects of B5 with different doses. I haven't taken the form you are taking, so I can't really offer any support on that. What you could try is dropping the B5 level by half and monitor the situation. At the end of the day, the ideal position to be in is to take the minimum level of supplements necessary to do the job.

 

 

hey I'm new to this and I'lI try out this regime but I wanted to ask about bodybuilding and acne , obviously creatine broke you out as has it with me, I'm 22 should I stop bodybuilding because of acne (I don't eat dairy anymore) but however I don't eat no vegetables so this is why I want to try this regime
