I've always believed that diet is 80-90% of the fitness equation. So much so, that I started a to-go healthy foods company (Lithe Foods) so that my clients could eat well and really feed their results.
We sold lean, local and seasonal fare out of our fitness studios. I developed many recipes, did a lot of R & D, worked with great chefs, a nutritionist, and I also drank a shit-ton of cold-pressed juice. For five years, juice was a part of my everyday (multiple times a day). I loved it and truly believed in the power of juicing. And, I still do. But, everything in moderation, right?
For many reasons (beyond juice) my body was very different back then. And I weighed a lot more than I do now. I can only imagine how many calories I was drinking per week! I'm not at all anti-juice, but I strongly believe that the right vegetable blends are absolutely key. Now, for me, low sugar, vegetable-based smoothies are what I'm drinking everyday for health.
