I forgot my tamper and the local health food store let me use their high power juicer in their deli section. I can tell you, my Vita-Mix gets way more juice than the jucier they had. Cody and I was amazed on how effective the Vita-Mix really was. We used the exact same amount of veggies and got a little over half of what we normally get.
I have gained 4 lbs back from incorporating salads and crackers, Cody says it is because I'm eating tomatoes, so I am going to eliminate all nightshades from my diet and see how I do. It's really hard, no sugar, no nightshades. Argh!
