I would love to give this book 10 stars! The recepies were not only easy, they were also delicious and included useful nutrition information. Made my intro to juicing easy and delicious! In 4 weeks I lost 8 lbs. and I feel great (more energy, better sleep, acid reflux gone)! For breakfast I have delicious veggie/fruit juices that give me instant energy! I no longer crave or drink coffee (ever!), and my sugar addiction has almost disappeared! I no longer drink diet coke and artificial sweetners are a thing of the past. As a Type2 diabetic I am thrilled with a recent blood test which revealed the lowest glucose reading I've had in over 9 months!

Here's a quick summary of what is inside.

First up there is a list of reasons to juice. I personally found this interesting as funnily enough an investment guru I follow was recently talking about his personal journey with juicing and how it helped him overcome a skin disorder that his doctor said was uncurable.

Secondly there is a guide to choosing juicers which is kept nice and simple, just a few hints to help you choose a better model.

Next there is a nutritional guide about what specific vitamins and other health properties are in a number of different fruit types. This also includes tips to help you minimise your pesticide intake including a number of fruits the author recommends to only buy organically.

Onto the juice recipes.
Each recipe is nicely divided into handy categories including: Cleansing and Detoxification, Weight Loss, Mental Acuity, Aging.

The steps to follow are simple, nicely layed out and come with a number of tips. For all health conscious people, each recipe comes with dietary information such as calories, sugar, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, protein and sodium.

Many of the recipes offered appeal to the tastebuds, such items as the fruit clense and the watermelon eruption are ones that stick out for me.

Overall it is an excellent book that is sure to appeal to anyone contemplating a juice diet or looking to expand their juicing repertoire.

This is a fantastic Beginner's book for juicing. I saw 'Fat Sick and Nearly Dead' and was blown away to learn all the health benefits. I've been feelingg gross since before Xmas and have been needing a change. So I hopped on amazon and picked up three juicing books. This is by far my face of the three. Well written with the voice of a friend giving advice. The layout is perfect and the recipes look great (haven't tried any YET). I read thru the whole book in one sitting this morning. Lots of great info. I definitely recommend!

I have two juicers - an Omega Masticating Juicer and a Breville Centrifufal - so my options are totally open!

I love the way this book is divided into the various categories served by juicing (detox, weight loss, etc.). I have tried several and find them easy to make, and delicious. The only problem I have is with the juices that call for grapefruit, as I am on a medication that precludes ANY consumption of this lovely fruit (and I am a SERIOUS pink grapefruit lover!) I would have liked for there to have been a suggestion of which citrus would be an acceptable substitute for the grapefruit which I may not have because it effects the way my meds metabolize.

.Another discovery I made was when I was getting ingredients for a couple of the recipes that call for coconut my local grocery store, there are two varieties offered - regular and 'lite' - it would be helpful to know which version the author used in formulating her recipes. I opted for the 'lite' version and found the taste of the juice (Strawberry and Coconut Whip) so rich, I can not imagine how decadent it would taste otherwise!

I am also a CreateSpace author and think there could have been better advice give to this author about the size of the book and the font, as the size seemed a trifle awkward, and a smaller font may have prevented an extra page being needed for only one sentence.

All in all, I find the author certainly seems to be very knowledgeable and has done her homework on which ingredients are best to achieve the desired goal - as well as making suggestions of the types of stores where some ingredients may be found.

I have already earmarked 6 or seven of the recipes that are my favorites.

Thank you, Sharon, for a very informative, easy to use, and instructive book.

The book has a lot of great recipes to start your juicing journey. The recipes are broken down to a few categories such as weight loss, Aging and beauty, and detox. She does give you a list of the right fruit and veggies to buy prior to start juicing. The author also lists the fruits and veggies that contain the most pesticides. I bought the book as a guide to start juicing to lose weight. The problem I have with this book is that some of the weight loss juicing recipes only provide you with 80-120 calories, is that enough to start your day with? Are you suppose to supplement these juice recipes with your breakfast? This is unclear and confusing. The author need to elaborate more on the weight-loss section of the book.

Those of you that bought the book please comment how you are implementing juicing through out the day.

We've been juicing for years and thought it might be nice to add a few new recipes to the mix. Pooped on amazon and thought this one looked interesting. Even though we juice nearly everyday, far from what I would call a "beginner", I was really happy with the information provided in this book. It has a great variety of recipes for beginners as well as for people like us who are familiar with juicing but just want to try something new. The recipes are very easy to follow, delicious and the nutritional information is a great bonus! It was very well organized and explained why juicing is good for you, in addition to walking you through how to select a juicer. Overall it is an excellent resource for anyone contemplating juicing or just looking to expand their juicing repertoire.

I Like the recipes but my only suggestion is that when a book suggests health food products and powders please tell people the side effects if any and if there are dangers of long use. I look things up but not all people do.Doing this would be very helpful. The reason being is when someone tries out something new they need those little sidebars when introducing new products. It will help them decide if that is an ingredient they want to use.

I just started juicing about a month ago and was really needing just a quick guide on how to and how not to juice. This book provides that information along with quick and easy recipes for the majority of juicing reasons. The photographs and detailed instructions really help the novice juicer get the hang of it. Excellent book.

I wasn't sure about this when I ordered it for my kindle phone app since i am new to juicing, but I am so glad that I did! It thoroughly and in easy print, explains juicing's "why", "what" and "when". I love how it breaks down different fruit by colors and explains the benefits of each. Even better, it is on my cell so when I go grocery shopping, I can pull up a recipe and purchase the fruits and veges for my favorite juices or ones I plan to try out.

This book was purchased along with my first juicer. It contains great information about juicing for the beginner, or anyone who juices. It provides everything from advice on what type of juicer to purchaser to information on what fruits and vegetables are the best to use to great recipes categorized by the end results of juicing.
