30 Bananas a Day!

I was watching a clip made by banana girl about why we should only drink juice as a side and not as a whole food substitute.

I totally agree and see your reasoning, however there is something you didn''t address that I would love to have clarified.

I know for a fact that juicing is a no no, but what about if I sqeeze the oranges without the catcher and leave some of the fibre/pulp in the juice???

I know that I am not getting all the fibre out when I squeeze but there is still a significant amount I am squeezing out?

please tell me that its on par with eating whole foods and that It is permissible??

I agree, juicing is inferior. I wonder how much pulp would raise the vitality to the level of whole fruits..? 

My opinion is that what you describe is fine. I think hand-squeezing oranges is ok, and adding some or all of the pulp to the juice is a great idea. In fact, this is what I do.

I think the problems arise when ALL of the fibre is removed mechanically. I personally don't think hand-squeezing oranges is a problem, as you will always have fibre left in the juice, especially if you leave the pulp in.

your opinions bring me comfort lol

also I eat whole foods as well, I do not just juice, I usually have my juice with my smoothies etc

surely thats enough fibre isnt it????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!

Haha, I think it is!

I have a feeling about mechanical juicers, something about the way that the juice is ripped from the pulp by centrifugal force, spinning round; it makes me think that the enzymes get all dizzy and confused :D Then they don't know what they're doing when they enter your body. It's not an especially scientific view, but intuitively I think there's something to it. Who knows?

I still have juice made from a machine every so often, and I enjoy it, but I think it's vastly inferior to hand-squeezed juice or whole foods.

Agreed! :)

OJ with pulp is fine Alex :)

So if pulp missing from oj is the problem.. then if you have pulp free oj mixed in with a banana smoothie wouldn't the fiber in that take care of it? But drinking it alone is bad for you?

Lauren I was thinking about adding OJ to my banana smoothy, have you tried it? it seems like a strange concoction

In general oj + nanas ain't a great combo (acid and sweet don't mix)...better to stick with proper food combining if you want optimal digestion :)

Where is that from? Orange juice has more sugar calorie for calorie than bananas.

Perhaps, but it is still an acidic fruit. But try it and find out!

Whenever there's OJ in the house I use it in my banana smoothies. Tastes great with blueberries or strawberries added into it too. I've never noticed any digestive problems from improper food combining. If I did I would stop.
