    Juicing is a great way to get a boatload of nutrients without having to eat plates and plates of veggies. As a supplement to regular eating, there's nothing wrong with it. Look at Jack LaLanne. What? He would have lived to 100 instead of only 97 if he hadn't juiced?

    While Grok certainly didn't have an electric juicer, certainly he occasionally had a bellyache or a toothache and tried to get gentle foods into himself while getting better.

    I like just blending crap together in a food processor and cramming the resultant slop in my mouth so I get to keep the fiber, but I'm an idiot.

    Me too, but not for the fiber. It's just easier. I've had two juicers in my life and the difficulty of cleaning them made me not use them. Blenders are easy to clean and they're cheap. I hate buying small appliances only to end up giving them to goodwill.

    Juicing, by removing the fiber really lets you "eat" a crapload of veggies.

    This may piss-off some people when I say that I'm the kind of emotional eater that doesn't eat when upset, stressed or depressed.
    I don't see any problems with juicing as such. Never have. I am, however, a proponent of eating, not drinking the majority of your calories, and I also think that consuming calories and nutrients while on a "fast", is kind of missing the point.

    The reason I prefer juicing is precisely because it eliminates the fiber, which has a tendency to bring on pain and bloating and inflammation for me. Juicing was a godsend while I was healing my IBS!

    Wow what an awesome bunch of comments! True, before I had the juicer, I'd just make smoothies with my stick blender, but I don't want as much sugar as that most times. I haven't juiced fruits, only veggies and herbs, plus lemon. And frankly, something about a vegetable smoothie just sounds disgusting to me where the vegetable juice is actually quite pleasant! Except when I tried adding a bit of carrot. Am I the only person alive who doesn't like carrot juice!?

    Glad the OP didn't ask to make that juice-thing in the juicer at the store. The tumeric and salt and greens would probably have contaminated the equipment for weeks.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Contaminated it with what? With awesome?

    Those are all ingredients that they use in the in-store juices, they just don't have a set recipe containing all of them without some kind of sweetner/fruit added
