There's some really good footage of Jack on You Tube, a remarkable man who held the world record for press ups among his many distinctions.

Jack LaLanne partly inspired me to get a juicer and start juicing, mainly a lot of vegetables and some fruit. I went on a 5 day vegetable and fruit fast and then continue to eat a lot of vegetables and fruits solid, blended and juiced. This also includes cooked vegetables. I've added grains, nuts, beans etc since then and some eggs dairy and meat. Cut out all junk and processed foods. The advantage of juicing is the enzymes you get that are destroyed in pasteurized juices.

Ever wonder exactly why fruits and vegetables are so good for us? Not only are they delicious, they are also full of phytonutrients. Nutrition science is now identifying the names of these health promoting compounds and understanding exactly how they work in the body to benefit us. Take a look at these examples from foods you may be using in your juicer already or can easily add to your daily routine.
Apples are naturally high in antioxidants that help protect “good” HDL cholesterol levels in the blood and provide anti-cancer benefits by reacting with cancer causing free-radicals and stabilizing them.
Ginger root reduces nausea, pain and inflammation, and provides heartburn relief. It also aids digestion.
Celery is high in organic sodium, magnesium and iron. Magnesium is important for the breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy. It helps with muscle relaxation and prevention of muscle cramps, nerve conduction and prevention of tooth decay.
Lemon contains natural anti-nausea and overall digestive aid properties.
Spinach, arugula and other dark green leafy veggies are rich in Lutein - a phytonutrient shown to help delay age-related macular degeneration of the eyes.
Kale is part of the cruciferous vegetable family - making it a good source of the phytonutrient, Indole-3-Carbinol. Research shows I3C has many anti-cancer actions such as promoting estrogen ratios in the blood that are weak and discourage "sweet" cancer tumor growth. Crucifers are also potent detoxifiers!
Cucumbers contain potassium and phytosterols, which help lower blood cholesterol levels.
