If one of your goals is to lose weight then juicing can offer a great alternative to regular diets. The reason that juicing is such a great way to lose weight is because it maximizes the nutrients your body is getting in relatively few calories.
Most diets work by reducing the amount of calories you take in. Combining a calorie controlled diet with exercise reduces your calorie intake and raises the amount of calories you burn. But there is one huge flaw in this technique.
The main question I get asked about Omega’s 8000 series of horizontal masticating juicers is what’s the difference between them? Omega hasn’t done a very good job at pointing out the differences between the J8003, J8004, J8005 and J8006. Rest assured that all of the 8000 series are functionally identical and you’re not getting any extra features the more you spend.
But where your extra money goes is into the materials used in construction. There is a clue in the warranty offered on the different models. The J8005 has a 10 year warranty (sames as the J8003). The J8006 has a 15 year warranty (same as the J8004). The auger on the J8006 is 8 times stronger than the auger on the J8005. That’s a pretty important part of the juicer and it needs to be strong because it’s at the receiving end when juicing.
There are many benefits associated with juicing and the nutrients it provides. It allows your body to get a lot of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. It can help your body repair damage, lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and help to balance blood sugar.
But there is another benefit to juicing which kicks in when you drink nothing but juice. That benefit is detoxification.
