If you are reading this post, chances are you are interested in learning as much as you can about a healthy plant based diet. Either you have been on some version of a plant based diet for a while, but have not had 100% success on it, or you are just beginning to explore whether a plant based diet is for you and you are seeking as much information as you possibly can before you decide how and when to jump in with both feet.
No matter what camp you are in, you are probably very well aware of the smoothie and juicing phenomenons. Everywhere you look in the Internet and in books, people are jumping on the health benefits of smoothies and juices. And I'm not here to tell you that these foods are not, in fact, health promoting foods. I'm not a doctor or a certified nutritionist, and I'm just not qualified to say whether they are or are not healthy foods (but my guess is that they are fairly healthy, in the scheme of mostly crappy choices out there in the world today).
This is about weight loss.
