Fruit and vegetable juices are important for diet and nutrition.
For instance, if you are 40 or younger and lead a somewhat sedentary lifestyle, you might drink 12 to 16 ounces of fresh fruit juices midway through the afternoon as an energy supplement.
If you're over 40 (with slower metabolism), drink 8 to 12 ounces of homemade juice. Follow your energy drink up with an equal amount of water. It will fill you up, quiet your appetite and extend the benefits of fruit juicing.
I was told not to drink water after a juice drink. I am 45 and started juicing about 6 months ago, at least 4x week. I noticed a big difference in my skin tone...more like a glow. I use beet, kale, cucumer, celery w/ a few carrots....I love it.
