If you're looking to lose weight or healthy-up your diet through natural means, Juicing For Beginners will set you in the right direction. I  liked the lists of fruits and veggies it gave and it named the precise vitamins of each, so I was able to tailor specific foods to my needs.  The book outlines the advantages of each kind of juicing machine for further personalization.

If you are trying to get better health, maintain good health or lose weight, Juicing for Beginners, will certainly be your best vehicle.  Everything you need to know if you are starting a journey to juicing is covered in this book.  The author contends that juicing is better for you than is eating whole fruits and vegetables because your body can absorb the nutrients better and it gives your digestive system a much needed rest.  It is also cited that it is well known that juicing can reduce your risk of cancer, boost your immune system, help you remove toxins from your body and aid in digestion of foods consumed.  The book makes it plain to its reader that there is an extreme amount of health benefits to drinking freshly juiced fruits and vegetables to get nutrients from food that you wouldn’t normally eat.  Packed with a wealth of information, the book includes tips and more than 100 delicious juice recipes for you and your family.  Written with simplicity and straightforwardness, this book is a must have for people that already juice and most particularly those that should consider it.

“Juicing for Beginners” makes the case for running raw vegetables and fruits through a machine that yields concoctions designed to cleanse your body of toxins and aid your weight reduction efforts. The book starts out making an interesting case for a change in diet/lifestyle before providing 100 creative recipes that are sure to provide an appealing drink for almost any palate.

I love how the author took great effort to help the reader understand the profile of different fruits and vegetables and their health benefits. You will be more knowledgeable about combining them in unique ways to get the desired result. Juicing for Beginners: The Essential Guide to Juicing Recipes and Juicing for Weight Loss is definitely worth the purchase as it you will feel like a new person after just three days of using the different recipes to make your juices.  Understanding the benefits of what we juice and put in our bodies is very important to our overall well-being and you will not look at fruit, vegetables and other additives the same after reading this book.

This book is a great introductory guide to incorporating juicing into one’s lifestyle. It offers really easy to follow recipes, straightforward and practical advice on how juicing affects health and wellness, and a broad approach to the various nutrients and antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables. Just having even one juice a day can make a big difference on mind and body, as evidenced from the chapters. It’s clear that the author is both knowledgeable and passionate about juicing!

The highlight of this book is all the great recipes it has for juicing.  Vegetables, fruits, healthy additives--there are so many fun combinations.  This book also gives the basics of juicing, assuming you've never laid eyes on a juicer before.  There is also a section that touches on health problems and ailments; this part seems rather basic, but at least it serves as a motivator to get juicing.  Personally, I can't wait the try the "Purple Peach Parsley" juice!

I am so excited to find a way to add healthy fruits and veggies to my and my family’s diet. It’s not always easy to get your kids (or spouse) to get the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables, not to mention struggling with self discipline. It is bursting with recipes for both fruit based and vegetable based juices. The recipes are varied and are easy to swallow for those who like typical fruits/veggies or bold combinations for adventurous taste buds. I especially like that the specific health benefits for each fruit and vegetable is mentioned. Making this not only a great juicing recipe guide, but also an informed way to target your own health concerns. Cheers to your health!

Although the so-called “Western Diet” is put on trial in these pages (guilty on all counts!), the authors don’t demand that you radically change your lifestyle. They want you to try some juices and notice the difference for yourself.

I’d recommend buying this book before deciding which juicer is right for you. There are lots of helpful hints to consider what will meet your needs most accurately. Also, you’ll be inspired to try new options in your juicer once you read about their health benefits.

I purchased this book because I wanted to try juicing and knew next to nothing about how to do it. If you are thinking of juicing, Juicing for Beginners is the ultimate how-to book for us newbies. How do you decide on a juicer? I had no idea, none until I read the pros and cons of each in this book. The best thing about this book is the long list of fruit juice recipes that actually taste great so you’re not trying to make it up as you go along. Loved the Coconut Cabana Juice!

Thank you for this awesome book. I now feel better about juicing. The knowledge I gained makes me feel better equipped to address some of my physical ailments. Who would have thought a simple juicing would change my life.

If you’re looking to shed some pounds or merely eat more produce than you do, Juicing for Beginners is a great book to get you started. Not only does it offer recipes for delicious-sounding juices (like Minty Mojito Juice or Pumpkin Pie Juice), in which seconds are okay and even encouraged, it describes the overall health benefits of juicing and tackles the question Why should I juice when I can just eat produce like a normal person? With great recipes and a wealth of information, this book is perfect for those looking to begin juicing their way to a healthier life and smaller waist.

With over 100 recipes, a reader-friendly guide to buying a juicer, and a detailed explanation of the benefits of every fruit and vegetable able to be juiced, "Juicing For Beginners" is an important addition to the kitchen of any health-conscious individual. An emphasis is placed on the correlation between juicing and weight-loss, making it both a recipe book and an essential dietary tool. This guide triumphs by defining the juicing process as a simple and efficient method of staying healthy.

Great reference for the beginning juicer and filled with enlightening information on the benefits of a healthier diet though juicing. I found several helpful tips on making juicing quicker and easier. I also though the section on juicers was valuable since it helps clarify which machine is best for certain produce. Handy charts, nutritional information, and a lot of tasty sounding recipes make this a book worthy of a space in the kitchen.

Purchasing Juicing for Beginners is one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. I’ve been using the recipes for almost two weeks now and I can’t even begin to tell you how much better I feel. After about a week of replacing juice for my typical morning breakfast of cold cereal and milk, I noticed I was far less sluggish in the morning so I started replacing my lunch with juice as well. I have far less headaches than I normally do, and have lost 5 pounds. I have to tell you, the recipes are delicious and so easy to make. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to eat healthier, feel better, and/or lose weight.
