Today we are continuing with juicing our lunch. I have been doing this for about 10 weeks. So far I have been enjoying this new habit. I have not noticed this improve my Rheumatoid Arthritis, but I have not found it giving me any issues either. The first benefit I have found with replacing lunch with around 16 to 19 ounces of juice instead has been weight loss. Since I started juicing I have lost 12 pounds. I have done nothing different and have not changed any medication recently. I have gone up a pill of the Methotrexate just recently and I think the one before that was around three months ago. So I believe the weight loss is from the juicing.
The second thing I have noticed after juicing for a couple months, I really miss it if I skip it. I have a craving for it like I have for chocolate. I also noticed the days I can not do fresh juice and even when I do a Naked Juice from the store, I wake up hungry in the middle of the night. I still had a meal for lunch some of those days and dinner, but still woke up in the middle of the night hungry like I missed something.
Today we had a combo of celery, red apple, Asian pear, apricot, ginger, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, blueberries, cucumber, Roma tomato, garlic and a carrot. It was pretty yummy!
Do you have a healthy habit you are starting this year?
