I don’t see why you can’t chug it but if you’re going to try to change your eating habits why not learn to eat/drink slower? The juice is suppose to be drunk within 15 min. to get the most nutritients anyway.You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

I am with Nancy. Most of our problems are eating or drinking too fast. It takes roughly 20 minutes for our brain to get the signal that we are full. If you chug your juice in a matter of a minutes, then your brain will think you haven’t eaten anything for a longer time. Sip it slower and you will notice that you are feeling fuller with your juice. It will also train yourself to eat slower. My mother was always trim her entire life and my aunt is very trim too. They both ate slowly and with no distractions. We become more satisified with our food/juice when our full concentration is on eating/drinking.You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

Don’t let it sit for too long as it could lose nutrients…You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

If I want a quick energy boost I drink carrot juice rather quickly first thing in the morning (usually before I go for a run).
For long-term energy during the day however, I have my green drinks.
These I sip slowly for energy throughout the day.You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

I have a question that was elicited by some of the comments. I wouldn’t have the ability to bring a juicer with me wherever I went, specifically to work. But I could juice stuff in the morning and store them in the fridge and drink when necessary. Does that then just negate all of the benefits of juicing? I just don’t see the feasibility of being able to juice and drink immediately for most of the time except morning, evenings, and weekends….You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

I have the same situation, Liz. I am new to juicing and am eager to see the answer to this one.You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

If you sip it slowly and by that i mean let the juice be in your mouth a couple of seconds the enzyms in your mouth allready start to work with the juice, so sending signals to your brain etc.
I take my juice (a litre) with me to work (cooled) and i allways try to finish it around noon.Smoke Tyres not DrugsYou must be logged in to reply to this topic.

It truly depends on the type of juicer you have. I have the green star and I can juice put it in sealed jars and keep for 48 hours. it is great to be able to juice enough for 2 days! I put it in 8 oz jelly jars… hope this helpsYou must be logged in to reply to this topic.

Would you be better off juicing fresh for every glass? Yes. But you would also be better off if you picked the veggies from the garden right before you juiced them.
Yes, nutrients do begin to degrade shortly after juicing, but you’re not loosing enough from morning to noon for you to worry about, and just like picking fresh you have to pick and choose your battles and if you can’t juice at work you can’t juice at work.
Me, I’ve found I can freeze the juice in ice cube trays and throw the frozen blocks into my drink bottle before I leave. By the time lunch rolls around it’s all slushy and ready to drink. I also have a couple bottle with the built-in cooler rods that you leave in the ice box to get cold. Keeps things nice and chilled for the long road trips.
Good luck!You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
