When it comes to proper nutrition I see many people cheating and thinking it is ok. If you eat a good healthy nutrition plan and exercise you can reach every goal. So why self sabotage with alcohol or extra sugar?I will be the first to tell you that cheat meals are ok, but not every night or multiple in the same night. Binging happens more times then not and people just are not recognizing that they are even doing it. This is why tracking your nutrition is very important.

Juicing and the importance of the alkaline/acid connection I use my juicer 2 to 3 times per week to easily consume an abundance of important raw nutrients. Drinking your fruits and vegetables in a concentrated form is wonderful! Each and every single one of us needs to consume some raw sources of food daily and juicing provides that.
