Re: Vitamix v. Juicer

I can guarantee you that a Vitamix is not a substitute for a juicer - particularly when you mention wheat grass.  I owned a Vitamix for a few years and gave it away because it is nothing but an overpriced blender and there are blenders out there that are better and cheaper than Vitamix.  I know, Vitamix pays some guy to visit my Costco every couple of weeks where he gives a carnival schpeel and tries to make believe that a Vitamix is a juicer - and it isn't.

When it comes to grass I used to have several racks of grass growing in trays by the window in my living room and juiced it with my Green Power juicer.  You have to have a gear juicer for wheat grass to get anything out of it and even then you need a load of grass to get any juice and when you get it - it tastes horrible.  It also never provided me with a single benefit and I still have Ann Wigmore's original book on her wheat grass juice discovery on my bookshelf.  While I think she was sincere, I don't think that her story held much truth to it.

I have done several short term (10 day) juice fasts and also one of 21 days and you have to do them often for there to be any benefits or you will gain your weight right back.  Again, I never found any real benefit from them and gave them up a long time ago.

The best kind of fasting that I've found for weight loss and health in general is the every other day fasting/dieting.  Eat regularly one day and then no more than 500 calories the next.  That also becomes difficult though because there are always family events that don't follow your schedule and it is difficult to stick with the program.  Also in one of the books on the alternate day diet (either


it says not to do the diet if you are over 65.  I'm in my 80's and never had a problem with it.
