If you are on this site right now, chances are that you want to gain lean muscle. Building your body is not the easiest thing to do. It takes patience, time, and a lot of effort on your part.

I was first introduced to the world of juicing after watching the documentary called Sick, Fat, & Nearly Dead. My husband and I were so impressed with what we saw and learned that we went out and bought our first juicer 4 years ago-something barely $100 from Target.
