My wife just bought one of those super blenders and I have been using it to make lots of fruit and veggie juices.

Although I have not taken anything out of my diet and simply substituted the juice for the whole/raw materials, the weight loss has been phenomenal.

What's going on here?

Was I not digesting the whole foods and in starvation mode or does blending let the food run on through?

Anyone else have results with this?

Whatever is going on, it is really helping to slim me down to racing weight after three years of no results despite hard training.

Ha!

All I am doing differently is putting the veggies I normally eat in a blender and making "bug juice" out of it.

Broccoli, banana, spinach, carrot, tomato, apple, juice. Stuff like that. I used to eat that for lunch, but now I drink it.

We've had lots of rain, so I am not even riding as often as before and losing the weight. I am guessing I was stuck in starvation mode and the increased ability to absorb nutrients shook me out of it.

Maybe I wasn't digesting it very well before.

Before I would just wash and cut them and then take them to work in tupperware. Maybe steam the broccoli at work. Now I blend and carry.
