Recipe for 20-oz Juice
I do this 1 or 2 times each day, and I eat a normal meal each day. By drinking as soon as juiced, your juice does not loose those enzymes that are so important for healing and disease prevention. (##) = relative Nutrient Density.
Beware when using beets. Beets are a good liver detox and to much beet can cause potential liver issues. I only add 1/4 beet once per week.
2 Kale stalks (romane subst)(1000)*
Juice the cucumber last to wash out the other juices. Items with asteric are not optional and are required for best and fastest results. If you only use the required items, then increase quantities by 50% to achieve 20-ounces.

Video correction: The link above "Gerson" has a grammatical error when the lady states that the body's blood pH remains acidic. The body regulates the body's blood pH to 7.346 something and the body must leach the required neutralizing base from the bones to restore this pH; and this is why poor diet has serious negative consequences. Eating alkalyzing foods reduces this extra burden upon the body and helps to prevent bone degeneration. Eating alkalyzing foods also reduces the acidic nature of the water in the lymphatic system which bathes the cells and collects 10% of the cell's fluid loss.
Hungry Between Juices?
Fats keep the hunger away and also slows you down and makes you sleepy. Eat fats in the evening for better sleep. If you feel hungry eat one serving, 15 whole almonds (160-calories) and drink a glass of water. You can also eat fruits as snacks and energy boosters. Most fruits are high in natural sugars which are essential to fuel the body cells for proper energy levels. Almonds provide 80% of their calories in fat and the water fills your stomach. These nut fats are the good fats for your body, they also keep feelings of hunger in check and make juicing much easier. The fat content is why most people like bad foods and whole almonds. We do need fat in our diet so consume your favorite nuts while juicing and eat some fruit for a pick me up.
Size Does Matter
I have found that the quantity of juice consumed determines your hunger status. If I drink less than 40-oz/day then I start feeling hungry and start having cravings. If I drink 50-oz/day or more, then the hunger and cravings tend to go away. Do yourself a favor, don't under juice.
Blue Diamond Almond Breeze contains carrageenan where as Silk Pure Almond does not. Silk Pure Almond containsGum products for their thickener. Now that you know, you can make your own educated choice. Silk Pure Coconut also contains Gum products in lieu of carrageenan. Walmart sells all three.
Mean Green Juice Drink = 4 stalks of celery, 1 cucumber (peel off skin), 1 ginger root (1-inch), 1/2 lemon (skin cut off), 2 green apples, 6 kale stalks.
My results that keep me motivated (age-66):
Juice fast Detox Regimine Inspired by "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" documentary on Netflix. Although not sick, I felt that I could feel much better. I completed a 14-day juice fast, and then tried one meal/day for a week and went back to mostly juice fasting. With one meal/day my level of feeling good decreased and my cravings returned. I will eat whole food on social ocassions but not on a regular basis. I have now returned back to at least one meal per day and the cravings are much more severe than when on the juice fast.
For my fast I juiced the following items for about
40-oz of juice and drank four 10-oz glasses per day. This is not rocket
science so if you get a different yield of juice, then adjust accordingly.
I now use the recipe shown to the left and/or the Lean Green drink linked above. I have decided that the extra clean-up time is worth the benefit of those enzymes that disappear in a matter of minutes. I now make 20-oz servings once or twice per day.
