Tips for How to Buy the Best Juicer
There are many types of juicers on the market, but they can all be classified into two main categories: high-speed (a.k.a. centrifugal juicers) or low-speed (a.k.a. masticating, cold-press or low-revolution-per-minute juicers).
High-speed juicers process fruits and vegetables at a higher speed through contact with a spinning shredder against a mesh filter, creating a "centrifuge" force. With nonejection types, the pulp remains in the shredder basket; with automatic-ejection types, the pulp is discarded into a separate waste basket. High-speed juicers tend to be less expensive, however proponents of the raw food movement say the heat produced along with the high speed may break down some of the nutrients as the juice is extracted.

Absolutely forbidden are alcohol, bread, and carbonated (fizzy) drinks including diet drinks and carbonated water (mineral or soda water). If alcohol is drunk, go off the diet at least one day.
Also Do not eat bread, or any grains (including cereals).
Stick with filtered or bottled water, unsweetened fruit juices or cranberry juice (and skim milk on the day allowed).
This is a chemical diet, and alters body chemistry. To make it work, the diet foods should not be diverged from, only these noted substitutions should be used. Do not mix different food types on any days that are not specifically allowed

Don't let anyone terrorize you out of eating correctly. Limit your carbs to fresh vegetables, berries, nuts, dairy and an occasional piece of fruit. Many diabetics willsee their disease recede entirely if they follow that eating plan. Avoid sugar, fruit juice, potatoes, rice, and bread. If you must have some of the above on occassion, stick to mixed grains. Avoid both regular soda with sugar and diet drinks of any kind - they both lead to metabolic syndrome. Caffeine causes blood sugar spikes in Type II diabetics, so avoid coffee as well.
