Everything You Need to Know about Juicing and Blending to Lose Weight


Alright! This is John Kohler with discountjuicers.com,
today we have another exciting episode for you. No we’re not going to do a juice-off
between the Nutribullet and the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer today, what I am on, I’m actually
on set ready to film my next video that’s actually already uploaded to YouTube that
you will want to check out if you haven’t seen it already it’s the top six reasons
why juicing is better than blending. That being said, it’s my opinion that both juicing
and blending and of course eating fresh fruits and vegetables are very healthy for you, and
in this episode what I’m going to do is we’re going to go back to an hour long presentation
I gave in Las Vegas, Nevada talking about the different juicers, the differences between
juicing and blending and some of my secret tips and tricks that I’ve learned over the
last 20 years of being on a plant-based raw food fruit and vegetable based diet. So without
further ado, let’s get into that clip. Today’s talk is on juicing for the New Year
to look amazing, lose weight, gain energy, and to get healthy. Now this is something
that I have personal experience with that I’ve been doing literally for the last 20
years on a consistent and regular basis. And I can sum up this talk in just a few words,
I mean the main benefit of the juicing and the blending and all this kind of stuff is
for one reason only, it’s mainly to get the best foods on the whole entire planet
into us, and hopefully one day you’ll crowd out all the other foods that you may be eating.
So the best foods on the whole planet are fresh fruits and fresh vegetables. And you’ve
been told this many time before, everybody says eat five to nine servings of fresh fruits
and vegetables a day, and people might eat some fruit, you know people love like bananas
and mangoes I think are the top eaten fruits and they’re pretty easy because they taste
good they’re sweet, but most people, especially kids it seems like these days don’t like
their vegetables. And based on my research that I’ve done hours and hours, the facts
to me are clear that the leafy green vegetables are the most important vegetables that we
should be including, and unfortunately most people don’t eat their leafy green vegetables,
and I don’t mean leafy green vegetables such as lettuce and iceberg lettuce and the
lettuces which are leafy greens, but I really want people to eat high quantities of the
dark leafy green vegetables, the cruciferous family of vegetables really valuable, they’ve
done studies with broccoli sprouts and how it can help with cancer, and every different
leafy green whether it’s a spinach or broccoli leaves, kale leaves, cauliflower leaves, dandelion
leaves, they all have different phytochemicals and phytonutrients and these are the, Swiss
chard another great one. They all have different properties in them help our body heal. And
there’s a substance in beets that athletes like to take because it increases how much
oxygen they can get into their blood. And it’s not like we should like “Oh John
said kale’s the best vegetable to juice so I’m only going to juice kale.” We want
to juice kale one day, spinach one day, bok choy one day. We’re very lucky to live here
in Vegas, we have the Chinatown, and there’s a really cool market called 168 Market at
Decatur and Spring Mountain, and if you go in there, you’re going to be amazed at all
the different leafy greens that you never even saw at a Smiths or an Albertson’s because
they have all these Asian greens that are just insane. And there’s all different flavors
and once again, every different leafy green has different phytochemicals, and many of
them have not even been researched up to this point as to know what positive benefit they
can have in the body. So my goal is not to wait for all the research to come out, my
goal is just to eat all the different kinds of leafy greens and more importantly to me
grow them and eat them so that I can be as healthy as I can.
And that kind of leads me into my story on why I got into this lifestyle is because after
I graduated college I literally almost lost my life. I had spinal meningitis, I was taken
to the hospital, I literally passed out going into the hospital, I was admitted into the
emergency intensive care and I basically woke up in the hospital and had the IV and everything
in me and I asked the doctors, “Doctors, what’s going on?” because normally you
get sick, you go to the doctors, they make you better so you think, and you go home.
In this particular situation I woke up because I was like “Whoa I’m in the hospital,
where am I?” And I was like “Well what’s wrong with me?” He’s like “You got spinal
meningitis.” So the next question was “Hey, when am I going to get out of here?” He’s
like “You might not be making it out of here.” So that’s not news you want to
hear at any age, but especially not when you’re in your 20s, just graduated from college and
have your whole life in front of you and are like “Man this really sucks. I could not
make it out of here and this could be the last thing I ever do in my life. That’s
not fun.” And I thought about what was really important to me. Even if I had a million dollars
or was really rich and had my nice sports car and all this stuff, would all that money
do me any good? Like no, I figured “Man, all I really want is my health. Because this
is like when I don’t have my health, you really want it.” And the money would have
done me nothing. And so this is a lesson that I try to live out even till today is to not
be focused on money as being successful. If I wake up in the morning and I have my health,
then I’m a success in the morning. And it’s so sad that in our society we’re taught
you have to go after money, but people do things to jeopardize their health on a daily
basis. In my opinion the foods they’re consuming, the cell phones they’re using, the toxic
chemicals and toxic cosmetics and different body care products they’re using, it’s
all not good. So, at that point I really thought that my health is my greatest wealth, and
I try to take that seriously and try to do things to enhance my health, and basically
a long story short, that got my foot in the door because when I left the hospital, I said
“Well doctor, why did I get the spinal meningitis? Nobody else at my college that I was hanging
out with got it.” They said that I had what’s called complement immune deficiency, which
is they said basically a defective immune system because you have bad genes. And he
said that you can get any other disease and be admitted next time in the hospital and
not be so lucky because it’s not like the Boy in the Bubble move in the 70’s, and
you guys may remember that movie. But I’m not that extreme but I’m not like a normal
person that has a healthy, working immune system, I’m somewhere in the middle. So
then, upon leaving there I’m like “Man, that’s the one thing I’ve got to figure
out is how I’m not going to get sick ever again, because this is not fun being told
that you might lose your life.” And so that led me on a journey and a quest, and my first
stop, and my first introduction into eating a healthy lifestyle was juicing. And I saw
a Juice Man infomercial back in the 1990s, about actually 1995 about juicing fruits and
vegetables, and I saw Jay Kordich on there talking about how juicing could build your
immune system, give you energy, you could lose weight. And I got on the phone and ordered
the juicer, and until it came I actually went down to the local Walmart because I wanted
to start juicing today and not wait two weeks because this is not the times of Amazon Prime
with two-day shipping, so I bought a juicer at Walmart it was on clearance sale for 24.97,
took it home, started juicing stuff, and then it started like, the juices, hardly any juice
came out, the pulp was really wet and at one point it started smoking. I’m like “Whoa,
what’s going on? I’m just juicing like the dude did on the infomercial.” So I took
it back, and as luck would have it they had one more, so I got that one, took it home
and guess what, the same thing happened. So I mean, you know, all juicers are not created
equal, I learned this at an early age, so I was happy when I did finally get the Juice
Man which actually is quite similar to this model over here, and it worked great for me,
and even though I was still eating my regular diet, all I would simply do is for breakfast
instead of eating breakfast, I would drink a fresh juice. And at that point in time I
was just out of college, didn’t really have a steady job and didn’t have a lot of money
so the cheapest thing to juice in the world is carrots. And, depending if you need to
get organic or not, I always encourage people to get organic if you guys can afford it and
if you can’t, eating non-organic carrots is far better than a hamburger, a cheeseburger
or a shake, a Coke, anything else virtually money can buy. And carrots can be bought very
inexpensive. For example the cheapest place for organic carrots in town, even cheaper
than the wholesale terminal if you go to LA because I’ve done that before, is actually
at Costco you can get 10 pounds for 5 bucks, actually this is the bag, because I go there
for my carrots, the Bunny Love. And if you’re buying carrots too, you want to get the Bunny
Love brand whenever possible, because this is made by Grimmway Farms, and their carrots
are particularly sweet, I’ve tasted carrots that you juice and then they taste like dirt,
and it’s not fun. But these ones taste a little bit sweeter. That may be a negative
for people that don’t want the extra sugar in them, but I don’t think a little bit
of sugar in the juices is that big of a deal as compared to processed sugars in Cokes and
other things that you guys might be drinking. And then for non-organic carrots even a place
like Vaughns has non-organic carrots, I’ve seen them for five to 5.99 for 25 pounds.
So that’s incredibly cheap, so I don’t think anybody should be able to say “I can’t
afford to eat healthy,” because carrots are dirt cheap, and one pound of carrots makes
one cup of juice. So when I got into—on average, depending on the juicer of course,
some more, some less. And when I got into this I would literally juice five pounds of
carrots every day for breakfast. And so that would only make four or five cups of juice,
and I would get all the nutrients out of the carrots except for the fiber in me, and also
in a very easy to digest form, which is something we’ll talk about in a little bit when we
talk about the differences between juicing and blending. And so that’s simply what
I did, and I did that for breakfast, and then for lunch I had my regular lunch, and I thought
I was a vegetarian even though I ate chicken and fish, but I didn’t eat red meat. And
so I ate my regular lunch, and then mid-afternoon I’d maybe make a couple more pounds of carrot
juice, and then for dinner I’d have my regular dinner. So just by doing this, I increased
my fruit and vegetable intake dramatically, I was going from basically maybe less than
a pound of fruits and vegetables combined a day to five pounds at breakfast to maybe
seven, eight – eight pounds of just carrots. And that’s huge, I mean there’s a protocol,
it’s called the Gerson therapy that they actually juice – a big part of the therapy
is just carrots and apples, and they’ve cured people with the incurable diseases,
and there’s a really good documentary I believe, I think it’s on Netflix, about
the Gerson therapy, and it’s amazing. They’ve been doing that for 30 plus years or more,
just healing people with the power of vegetables, and more importantly getting the other foods
out of your diet, because those are the foods in my opinion, especially the processed foods
and the over-consumption of animal products causes diseases from what I’ve seen.
So I guess next let’s get into the differences between blending and juicing. One of the questions
that people wanted asked – that some of you asked is actually “I thought blending
was better than juicing because I heard all the fiber gets tossed. I went to a juicing
class where they convinced me juicing is dense and nutrient-packed, so now I’m confused.”
So if you turn on the TV, you watch a Nutribullet commercial, “This is not a juicer, it’s
not a blender, it’s a nutrition extractor,” and they tell you “This is the best thing,”
or if you watch a juicing infomercial with Jay Kordich, he’s going to say “The juicer’s
the best,” and you know so, what I think is whoever’s selling the product they’re
always going to say it’s the best. Now I’ve got an easy job, since I sell juicers and
blenders, so I’m going to tell you they’re both the best. But what I’ll also tell you
guys is that the whole message for me is actually not necessarily even buying a juicer or a
blender, but just to increase your fruit and vegetable consumption, whether you get a blender,
whether you get a juicer, we have the best juicers and blenders on the whole planet,
what are they? Our teeth. If we masticate our food into a mush, right, that’s literally
like blending, and it’s even superior than blending because we’re working it at a lower
RPM, we’re exercising our jaw muscles, and we’re mixing the salivary amylase in our
mouth and the ptyalin with the food to help us get the food digested better than if we
blend it and just slurp it down without getting that saliva mixed in. So overall, if you don’t
want to use one of these appliances that’s fine, you could sit there and chew up into
a mush five pounds of carrots. I mean if you ever thought “Why do we feed babies baby
food, why don’t we feed them real carrots?” It’s because they don’t have the teeth.
Now if you’ve got the teeth you should be chewing every mouthful into a mush before
you swallow it. And that’s why it takes me an hour or so, maybe two sometimes, to
eat my dinner at night, because I have a nice large salad, and each mouthful is made into
a mush before I swallow it. So I don’t know, many people might not want to dedicate an
hour or two to eat their dinner at night, so that’s why the appliances really make
it easier to include more fresh fruits and vegetables, especially if you don’t like
the taste, you don’t like eating them, the juicer specifically concentrates the nutrients
down. So the difference between blending and juicing
is very simple – one removes the fiber, and one keeps it. Now we could get into an
argument all day, because this has happened on YouTube when I’ve posted a video about
juicing this or blending that, and people say “You need the fiber,” and some people
say “You don’t need the fiber,” and, I mean I want you guys to try to live by a
motto of not right and wrong or good and bad, what I try to really do is live my motto of
maybe good, better, best, or maybe shades of grey, so like for example if you’re driving
on the 15, and you’re going the speed limit, what is that 65 or something? And you’re
going to the speed limit at 65, you’re legal. But, if your friend next to you is going 66,
technically he’s illegal. But meanwhile everybody else is blowing by you because they’re
doing 75. But you know, what’s right and what’s wrong, you know? And there’s that
grey area, cops for the most part won’t ticket you if you’re going one or two miles
over the speed limit, especially if you’re in Vegas because they just don’t have the
force to do that. But if you’re going 10 or 20, then you’re a goner, you know? So
just like that, blending and juicing, they both have their pros and cons, and I like
to do both at different times. Some days I’ll juice, like today I’m drinking my—actually
let me take a swig of this. This is actually sugar cane lemon juice. Mmmm. So yeah you
take the long stalks of the sugar cane, I have a special juicer that I put it through
and it wrings out all the juice out of it. And you might think sugar cane is actually
really sweet juice because it’s made out of sugar, but actually it only has about,
depending on the sugar and if it’s ripe or not, the cane, it’s like 11 to maybe
maximum 15 percent sugar content. I mean it’s mostly water content with a lot of different
once again phytochemicals and phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, and the grass family
of plants absorb 90 plus minerals into them. And orange juice, which many people may have
drank today actually has more sugar than sugar cane juice, which is quite interesting you
wouldn’t think that. So sugar cane to me is like a green juice because it turns green
and then I put some lemon in there, it kind of has the citric acid in there, makes it
a nicer flavor, and then also helps it preserve longer because the sugar cane juices tend
to go bad very quickly. So by removing the fiber, literally you’re able to eat more
of the fruit or vegetable. So when I would juice five pounds of carrots, I would get
five cups of juice, and five pounds of carrots in the blender will make five pounds of baby
food, and with all the fiber so you’re going to have to choke that down. So people say
“But John, we need fiber,” you know we need fiber, we’re made to eat things and
get fiber, so my question is if you eat sugar cane, and with the sugar cane you have the
stalk, you bite into it, you could chew it, and unless you’re pretty crazy you’re
not going to swallow all that hard fiber from the sugar cane, you’re going to spit it
out. So we are a juicer, we can juice with our teeth, but we also blend if we just chew
everything and swallow it, right? So the blender keeps the fiber, and at the same time unlike
me chewing on something, the blender runs at a high speed especially if you have something
like the Vitamix which is my favorite high-speed blender. It runs in excess of 20,000 rpms,
and they say that’s over 200 miles per hour how fast the blade’s spinning. And that’s
cool that it runs really fast, because it gets the job done fairly quickly, but there’s
always a negative to juicing and blending for that matter, is as the blade spins, it
rotates and with every rotation it’s creating a vortex, and you can see the vortex if you
look in the blender. And with that vortex it’s sucking in air as the blender’s spinning
and as it’s working to break open all the fibrous cell walls, and with all the air being
introduced at such a fast rate, it oxidizes nutrients so bad that there’s one person
that I met in the raw foods movement that says that you lose 90% of nutrition in the
blender. Now I don’t know that I’d believe that because that seems a bit farfetched but
I would definitely agree and bet my life that you lose more nutrition in a high-speed blender
than the 43 rpm juicer I have over here, right? I will say that I don’t know if it’s 90%,
but nonetheless, even if you’re losing 90%, 50%, 40%, whatever, and it gets you to eat
more fruits and vegetables and leafy greens, then I think that is a good thing. Now the
juicer on the other hand removes the fiber, and while we do need fiber and I don’t necessarily
advocate living on juices for your whole life, I like to juice every day in general, I like
to blend every day, and then I like to eat foods whole and chew it up. I like to do all
three methods. And so, what people don’t understand when they say “Oh blending’s
the best man, we’re keeping the fiber,” people don’t understand that if I lived
in an age of 200 years ago, number one we wouldn’t have the appliances, and number
two the world is not polluted, we don’t have cell phone tower radiation, we don’t
have PCBs, we don’t have heavy metals, we don’t have all this crazy stuff we’ve
got nowadays, I would probably be fine with just chewing things up into a mush and getting
all the fiber. Unfortunately we’re not living 200 years ago now, and we have all these environmental
toxins and things coming at us. I believe by concentrating the nutrients and being able
to get more in a smaller condensed space, I think that’s much more beneficial, and
the main reason for the juicing and removing of fiber is two-fold, and this is where I
think juicing really shines, and if I really had to choose one it’d be tough because
I really like blending, I really like juicing, I really like eating things whole. If I had
to choose one I would really just go for the juicing. I would have to pick that over the
blending actually, and here’s why – the main thing that I’ve seen is that over the
years, people’s digestive systems get kind of messed up, and they just don’t work optimally.
So this means that if you’re eating food, even if you’re putting in your mouth the
best organic food, and your body’s not being able to extract the nutrients out of it and
then it just goes right through you, then what good was the food? So, with the juicer
because it removes the fiber, and there’s soluble and insoluble fiber, it removes the
– let’s see the soluble fiber is in the water, and it removes the insoluble fiber
so you’re still getting some fiber in the juice, but because it’s removing the fiber,
your body has a much easier time to digest the food, because all the fiber’s removed
and they say there’s little villi in your intestinal tract that are able to basically
get the nutrients out of the juice and into you very quickly. Now the fiber will slow
down that process and things will not move as quickly and you won’t get the immediate
nutrients into you because it slows it down. So that’s the reason why I think the juicing
is much more beneficial in this day and age, because it does remove the fiber so that we
can get the absorption because of people have a lot of digestive issues these days. And
then the other reason is to be able to concentrate the nutrients to get more of the good stuff
in, because we have all these other things coming at us all the time. Oh not to mention,
the other fact that I really like to talk about too is the produce of today is not even
the same as the produce of the 1950s. They have done studies where like an apple today
grown today has two times less nutrition as an apple from the 1950s, and some people might
say “Oh that’s because of the different varieties these days,” and while that may
play a part of it, I believe the bigger part is the soil, and the soil is being depleted
at an amazingly fast rate, and even organic agriculture that’s done on a massive scale
is not replenishing the soil to the levels where they need to be to grow high-quality
food. So if you’re eating substandard food that already has less nutrients than it did
in the 1950s, you better be concentrating it to at least get those levels that were
there back then, because if you’re just eating one carrot it could be like eating
three carrots back in the day. So that’s why I like to—once again another reason
to concentrate the nutrients, but that’s another very important reason to grow your
own food, because you can do things in your garden so you can far exceed the quality of
the food that money can buy in the store through conventional even organic agriculture or agribusiness
done on a large, big scale. And if you think you’re getting good quality produce from
the farmer’s market, I’ve been to a lot of farmer’s markets, I buy a lot of produce,
and unfortunately most farmers are still not even aware of the things they really need
to do to the soil to bring the quality of the produce that they’re growing up, which
is quite sad, I did a video actually where I went to the farmer’s market over at The
Springs Reserve, and the lady said “You know this is the best watermelon you ever
tasted,” and I’ve heard that so many times, and I’ve had a lot of water melons like,
all over the place, and then like, that was on a Thursday and then on a Saturday I went
to the one at Tivoli Village, and there’s another farmer there that actually adds some
trace minerals and things that would be in line with my thoughts. He’s like “Oh yeah
these are really good water melons.” And I took that home, and I did what’s called
a Brix test, I checked the sugar levels and I also checked the nutrients in the water
melons there, and I also bought an organic water melon at Whole Foods, and of all three
actually the Whole Foods water melon was the best, which is quite sad because I do like
to support local organic farmers when I can, but they have to have higher quality stuff,
especially if they’re telling you it is. So anyways that’s another point. Anyway
so let’s go ahead and do this little comparison to show you guys the difference between blending
and juicing. I think first we’re going to go actually do the juicer here. So today I’m
just going to juice a very simple juice, it’s just basically carrots and apples. And the
first thing I want to say is that the juicer, this is an Omega VSJ 843, it runs at 43 revolutions
per minute so it’s very quiet, it’s one of the quietest juicers out there. And we’re
just going to go ahead and—I think I’m out of the handouts. So we’re juicing the
carrots, and one of the peculiar things about Omega VSJ is that if you put a fat diameter
carrot in it, it basically just stalls out on you, so what you have to do is you have
to just dunk one in and pull it out, and just let it work on a little bit at a time. Some
of the other model juicers that are similar to this style, you can just dump the whole
carrot in and it’s not going to clog up. That’s one of the negative features of this
machine, yup, like it did right there. One of the positive features is that unlike other
vertical auger style juicers, this one actually puts the least pulp in the juice, so some
people like some pulp in the juice, which if you think you need some fiber then get
a juicer that puts more pulp in the juice, and drink it. This one puts the least amount
of pulp in the juice, of course you can get a standard strainer or sieve to strain the
juice out. I think that was my third carrot. Now I’m going to juice some apples here,
and the apples I’m juicing today are actually the Granny Smith apples, and these are the
apples that are best juiced in a slow juicer, we’re going to talk a little bit about slow
and fast juicers in a minute. [inaudible] peel the carrot [inaudible]?
No I actually recommend, if you have organic carrots which these are, do not peel the carrots
because with most vegetables and fruits, most of the nutrients are near the skin. Now if
the carrots kind of look funny or messed up then I’ll peel them but, in general I just
don’t want to waste my time, I try to minimize my work and labor. All right so what I’m
trying to do here is I’m trying to juice half the carrots and apples in the juicer
so you can see the results. And then we’re going to juice half in the blender, or blend
half of them in the blender to show you guys the differences.
John ? Yes? Did you have to go back to the farmers and
inform them that you tested their [inaudible]. No I didn’t, I didn’t.
[inaudible] curious to see what reaction they would have [inaudible].
Yeah I mean I don’t know, I mean it seemed to me that a lot of people, especially farmers
are kind of like “We’ve been doing it this way, and this is how we do it,” and
they’re like not really wanting to change, I visit a lot of farmers in my time, because
I make videos on teaching gardening and farming online, and so I have over 1800 videos on
YouTube—or 1700 videos sorry, or 1,000 videos on that channel regarding farming, and so
it’s kind of cool when I meet a farmer that I’m like making suggestions to on how they
can improve and they’re going to do it. Most of them are really stuck in their ways
unfortunately. And sometimes just by adding some extra nutrients that don’t cost a whole
lot of money, you can really increase the quality of the food you’re growing. But
I can’t really say anything because I’m not a farmer on a massive scale trying to
make a buck, because after all, most of them aren’t doing it for love, they’re doing
it for a living, and they’ve got to make a living.
John are you familiar with the Tower Garden from [inaudible] Plus?
The Tower Garden, I am familiar with the Tower Garden.
What do you think of it? So if we could hold all the questions to the
end, because otherwise I won’t get on my presentation, but if you want to save that
till the end I do have a time at the end for questions and answers. All right so as you
guys can see I juiced the carrots and apples, now we’re going to go ahead and put the
same mixture in the blender. And so if you’ve ever been to Costco they always have the Vitamix
guy putting in all the stuff whole and all this stuff, and I will be putting in the seeds,
now there is a cyanide-like compound in the seeds, and people are like “I can’t believe
you juiced that stuff John and you’re going to eat it,” or whatever. And in my opinion,
there’s always two ways to look at things – you could be “Okay good, bad, right,
wrong, cyanide seeds bad,” you know and apple seeds. Or you could look at it like,
well you know there’s this substance called B17, I think they probably sell it at the
health food store, also known as laetrile, and actually that’s a good nutrient that
has been shown to be anti-cancer, and that’s in the apple seeds. And so for me, as long
as I’m not eating 50 million apples and all the seeds, I’m fine with it. I probably
wouldn’t recommend anybody sit there and eat apple seeds, but a little bit in here
is fine, because in here actually the apple seeds, most of them are actually coming out
whole, they might getting a little bit fractionated and getting a little bit of juice out of them.
In the blender now you’re going to get all of it, and so I always recommend pre-cutting
things before putting in the blender, and when loading up your blender you want to put
the wateriest item first, so if I was doing tomatoes, it would be best to put the tomatoes
first. Now the apples are a little bit waterier than the carrots, so we’re going to put
those in. And in general, normally what you have to do when you’re blending things,
you have to actually add some water, so I’m not going to try to add water because I don’t
want to really put water in there. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to take
the tamper that actually comes with the Vitamix, and we’re going to turn this guy on, okay,
plug your ears. [blender whirring]
That’s a lot of work. [laughing] I’d rather just juice it. All right. I would have been
easier if I would have added water but I’m kind of hard headed like that. So as you guys
can see, this is the difference, we have carrot juice here, nice and thin, we have this [laughing]—this
slop here. So which one would you rather drink to get a couple of pounds of carrots in you,
right? I mean, I could eat this if I was starving and there was nothing else, but it’s not
too fun. So one of the cool tricks that I like to do is I like to, you know you could
actually take the pulp and put it through the machine, and it should be somewhat effective
to squeeze out some of the juice. Now the juicers such as this one, it really would
have been helpful if I would have saved a carrot to put it through there because really
it doesn’t like already broken up particulate to go through there, it doesn’t really come
out too good. But yeah I mean, t hat’s the main difference, you’re saving the fiber,
and yeah there’s pros and cons to fiber. In my opinion, for most people it’s a con,
and that’s basically and you can concentrate the amount of nutrition you’re getting into
a much smaller area than having a ton of stuff. Also it’s a lot quieter in most cases to
use the juicer. Let’s go ahead and set that over there.
So I guess the next thing I want to talk about now that you know the difference between blending
and juicing, basically you’re keeping the fiber, this is running at a higher speed,
that’s in general running at a lower speed— Oxidizing.
Yeah oxidizing, you’re losing nutrients in there. You’re going to get better digestion
out of this, yes you’re going to get the fiber and there’s something to be said about
getting fiber because most Americans don’t get enough fiber, so you know if you—and
the other thing is cleaning, I’m not going to fib you on this—cleaning a blender is
so much easier than cleaning the juicer. This takes, literally I’m kind of lazy, I just
rinse it out, scrub it a little bit and then put it to dry, I’m done. The juicer, that’s
maybe 30 seconds, this takes me like 3 minutes. And still, that’s not a whole lot of time,
but you’ve got to take out the screen, you’ve got to scrub it down and all this stuff. But
you’ve to ask yourself, because another question somebody asked is how to do it fast
and easy for working professionals, and I think that, I know everybody’s busy in our
lifestyle, we lead a really busy, fast, hectic lifestyle these days, and I really want people
to invest the time in themselves you know, in their health because that’s why you’re
hopefully doing this for your health, if you don’t have your health you can’t go to
work, you can’t make money you can’t do anything. So even if it takes you three minutes
to juice, to clean the juicer and, you know I have a video where I juice, within 10 minutes
I have all the produce prepped and it’s all clean so I just run it through the juicer,
and I juice 32 ounces and I clean the juicer all within 10 minutes. So it is possible.
Yeah it would be a lot quicker to blend it, maybe at least half the time, but I want to
let you guys know that you’re worth it, and the first time you juice it’s going
to take a little more time because you’re going to get to know the hang of it and how
to do it and how to save time, but once you start doing it, and you know I have this one
guy I visit in Costa Rica, like juicing is his ritual in the morning. He gets up and
he just kind of like washes his stuff, he cuts it up, juices it and then he drinks his
juice, enjoys it, and his health is great because he’s taken the time to do that,
and it’s like his meditation. He puts some music on and stuff.
So that’s the difference between juicing and blending, basically you have more bioavailability,
because you’ve broken up the particles in a smaller size, better digestion, you could
get more fruits and vegetables and you’ll have more energy, higher nutrition, weight
loss, and glowing skin. Next I want to get into the different types of juicers. There’s
many different types of juicers. Somebody else asked what’s the best juicer, and that’s
like a trick question to me, because it’s like if you’ve got kids and somebody asks
you who’s your favorite kid, right, you going to pick out one? Probably not. So me
picking out my favorite juicer is difficult, but if somebody asks you which one of your
kids is the best at sports, then of course you’re going to have an answer for them.
So if somebody asks me “John, what’s the best juicer for juicing kale greens,” or
something, then I’ll have an answer for them. Because every juicer’s a little bit
different, every juicer has their pros and cons. So the first one on the list is a citrus
juicer. So we all might have one of those, the kind that reams the juice out. Those pretty
much only work for citrus fruits. There’s the electric ones and then the ones that are
actually a press. So I like to take the handle and then press it down. They have some really
cool ones that are antiques now, made before we had electricity, those are my favorite
ones actually the ones, and then the brand names are listed, and the Olympus Press, the
one that’s bolded, is my favorite. Then we get over to the centripetal juicer, so
these were the first kind of juicers that were introduced, and luckily enough for me
when I was a kid my parents actually owned, I think it was a Hamilton Beach centripetal
juicer, and the centripetal juicer, it works on centripetal force, which is something my
dad explained to me when I was a young age, and that’s kind of like how your washing
machine works on the spin cycle. So basically the clothes are wet in there, it just spins
really fast and all the water’s flung out of your washing machine. Well in the centripetal
juicer, it shreds up the produce, all the shredded produce stays in the basket much
like your clothes washing machine, and then spins around really fast and all the juice
is flung out, and it comes out the spout. So those models are now very outdated in my
opinion, and if you have to get one I would recommend the Omega 9000. But those, because
they continually are running and continually pushing air through the pulp, you get a higher
level of oxidation, which is one of the enemies to nutrients. So that’s why I really don’t
like the centripetal juicers these days. Next we get up to the centripetal ejection
style juicer and that’s like the one I have right here. This is actually called the Lequip
Mini 110.5, and this is kind of like the original JuiceMan 2 juicer I bought in the infomercial.
I mean the design really hasn’t changed too much. So this one runs probably about
maybe 8,000 to 10,000 RPMs, it’s a lot faster. I’ve had these described as airplanes taking
off in the kitchen, especially when you’re putting carrots or whatever through there
it can get a little bit louder. And how this works, is this works like a centripetal juicer
but instead of, you know so the produce is grated with these little shreds, and then
with the little grates, and then the produce is shredded at the same time, it’s micro
shredded, the juice is released, the juice basically gets flung out these little holes
here, and then the pulp basically through the spinning action gets kicked out the back
into a hopper. So this is centripetal ejection style. So I like this style more than the
centripetal style without the ejection, but once again, there’s some problems with the
centripetal style, namely the biggest problem for me personally is that you’re not able
to effectively juice leafy greens in it. So leafy greens are the most important thing
that I think people should be juicing, and this one does poorly at leafy greens, if you
put leafy greens in there, it’ll kick out large chunks of leafy greens. Now this actually
is a pretty good juicer for juicing carrots and once again I think somebody juicing anything
is better than them juicing nothing and then getting a pasteurized juice at Trader Joe’s
down the way or whatever because when they pasteurize juices, you lose all the enzymes
and also a lot of the nutrients are greatly diminished so much so that many juices these
days are actually fortified with nutrients that should have been there in the first place,
which I think is ridiculous. But yeah so you can juice leafy greens, also there’s a little
bit more oxidation happening in here than say, a slow juicer. But, I mean the benefit
is it’s fast, right? It’s fast, and on hard vegetables it actually works fairly well,
on nice firm fruits it actually works fairly well.
And that’s a centripetal ejection, next we get down to the centripetal ejection wide
mouth. So this was made popular by the Breville Juicer, how many people saw the movie “Fat,
Sick, and Nearly Dead”? A few people. That’s definitely a really good movie to watch to
motivate you about the power of juicing, it is free actually right now on hulu.com, you
can watch the documentary on juicing. It’s also on Netflix, if you have a Netflix subscription.
What’s the name of it? Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
Fat, Sick… And Nearly Dead. Yeah it’s a guy that came
over from Australia to the US and he did a juice fast and he lost a ton of weight and
got some amazing results just through the juicing alone. And he used the Breville Juice
Fountain and that is basically centripetal ejection with a three inch wide feed chute
so now you don’t have to cut the produce up small, you can put whole small apples in
there without much effort, and to save a little bit of time because you don’t have to cut
the things up. But nonetheless that still runs at a high speed and high RPM and doesn’t
tend to juice leafy greens too well. If you want more information than I’m giving you
on these specific juicers today because I can’t spend a half hour on each different
model, I do have over 300 videos on YouTube comparing the high-speed Breville to the Omega
or the Kuvings or the slow juicers and you can kind of see where I talk about each one
and get into specific details about how it works, and then I juice the same amount of
produce in each juicer to show you guys the yields and the color differences in the case
of a high speed versus a slow juicer and the juice separation.
Next we have a masticating juicer, and this is basically the Champion juicer, masticate
means like to chew, and the Champion is an old-school juicer man it’s probably been
out since the 50s, and it has an auger that runs several thousand RPMs, 1725 RPMs I believe,
and basically it has these little blades on here so it grinds things up and basically
gets the juice out. And I’m not a big fan of the Champion juicer because much like,
I mean I like cars from the 1950s for certain reasons, but efficiency is not one of them,
and the Champion, the design has not changed since the 50s, and you know cars of today
for example have air bags and traction control and all these crazy features I can’t even
keep up with. I really like the car I got into was a Ford, and I got in the car, and
you just line the car up next to the curb or where ever and you hit the button and it
parks for you, it parallel parks for you. Whoever thought? But yeah the Champion juicer’s
like a car of the 50s that just really hasn’t been updated, and the thing I like the Champion
for the most is to make the banana sorbet or banana ice cream is what people call it.
You just take ripe bananas, you peel them, you freeze them, and then you take them out
and you put them through the machine, and it makes a frozen yogurt style consistency
out the front of the machine. And the Champion by far does this the best over any other juicer
I’ve tested, and that’s for one reason – because when you put it in the Champion,
it’s running so fast and the way it works, it actually injects air and fluffs up the
banana ice cream to make it nice and fluffy. Consequently it has a really nice mouth feel
and texture, but it also melts fairly quickly. And if it’s doing this to banana ice cream,
just think what it’s doing to the juice when you’re juicing in it. It’s adding
air, it’s oxidizing the juice which is lowering the nutrition. And it’s quite funny that
in Champion’s marketing materials even to this day I don’t think they’ve even changed
it yet, it says “Our Champion makes a darker juice,” and they’re trying to promote
this as a good thing. The darker juice means it’s oxidizing, which is a bad thing in
my opinion. Okay so next we get into the horizontal single
auger style juicer so I didn’t bring one of those with me today, but that works pretty
much similar to this machine. There’s an auger in there much like this, and this is
a horizontal auger because this auger’s running up and down, and what happens is the
produce gets put in this auger kind of like the old-fashioned meat grinder compresses
the space that the produce is in until it literally squeezes out the juice which then
comes out the front, the screen and then is ejected out the front. And the horizontal
ones pretty much run the same way except that the auger is running horizontally, the auger
is more narrow, and the horizontal augers, I like them because they are the most efficient
at juicing things like the sprouts and the leafy greens and wheat grass if you want to
juice a lot of that stuff. They don’t tend to handle juicing fruits too well. But for
people that say “John, I want to just do mostly green juices,” then I would recommend
a horizontal single auger machine. One of the things I don’t like about the horizontal
single augers is that this machine pretty much for the most part you can just drop produce
in there and it’s auto-feeding which I love. On the single auger horizontal machine you’ve
literally got to take the pusher and then push in each piece of produce, and I don’t
want to sit there and push each piece of produce, I’d rather chop it up, dice it up, and just
drop handfuls in and let the juicer figure all that stuff out. Also on the horizontal
auger machines, one of the features I like is that it’s quick and easy to clean, so
it’s probably the simplest and quickest juicer to clean. It takes me about a minute
and a half to clean it, and it takes me with the Vitamix maybe 30 seconds, so it’s not
too much longer because you literally just brush off the screen which has a really small
screen area which is the hardest part on any juicer to clean to get all the pieces of pulp
out of all the holes, and horizontal auger machines, they’re pretty much like very
simple and easy to use. You could pretty much put in anything in any combination and it’s
going to work for you successfully. Next we get to the vertical single augers,
and this is my personal favorite style machine for my lifestyle and for what I juice the
most. This is the Omega VSJ, and this is the best vertical auger for juicing greens to
get the highest yield of all the ones I’ve tested.
[inaudible] Leaf—yeah this is the best, I mean overall
the horizontals are better for greens, sprouts and wheat grass, but if you want to get a
vertical, this is the vertical to get for the greens specifically. And besides juicing
the greens and the carrots and fruits, it does those fairly well like the horizontal
augers, they really choke for the most part on fruits, like I tried to juice a pineapple
in a horizontal auger and a vertical one, and the pineapple just clogged up and amazingly
enough it made it within 10% of the yield, but it was such a pain in the butt to plunge
everything in there and then it would back up and then it made a really pulpy juice that
I had to strain out. And so in general like this machine is more versatile for juicing
a wide variety of things. And that’s the reason why I like the vertical style machines,
plus they also take less counter space. Let’s see, next we’re going into the twin
gear machines, and the twin gear machines basically have two gears in them, like two
augers running next to each other but they’re actually gears kind of like inside an automotive
transmission. Some of you guys may have seen inside a transmission with the gears running
together. Basically the produce is put in between the gears, and the gears literally
crush and squeeze all the juice out. And this happens in multiple stages. So in the Green
Star Elite GSE 5000 there’s three distinct stages that’s trying to imitate a [inaudible]
juicer. First you put it in and everything’s basically crushed up, and then they have a
little mixing stage where the produce is mixed, and then the final stage is pressing stage
where the juice is pressed out. In addition something like the Green Star Elite has far
infrared and magnetic technology which they say pulls out more nutrients in the juice,
and I have seen testing basically that show this. which the company has provided. In addition
they’re the only company that has made testing for their specific juices that say “Our
juices can be stored for up to 72 hours with minimal nutrient degradation,” because of
I believe this slow process they’re using to extract the nutrition plus the other technologies
that keep the nutrition there longer. Other companies such as the Omega company and other
juicer companies that have slow juicers, they all claim that their juices can be stored
up to 72 hours, but repeatedly I’ve asked them for documentation to show what you’re
losing, and they’ve never provided any. So they basically just copied the other guy.
That being said, I do not ever recommend storing your juices. Once again, it’s always good,
better, best. I would rather have you drink a three day old juice made in a centripetal
juicer, than a McDonald’s hamburger, than a Snicker’s bar, than a Coke or a coffee
or whatever. But you know I think it’s much better, and the thing I try to do is I try
to make the juice, and right after it’s made I drink the juice. And minimally, if
I’m going to store it which is quite rare, because I make the time in my day to juice
when I’m hungry when I’m going to drink it, because once again with the juice sitting
out, I don’t know if you guys were watching this, but from the time I juiced it, it was
a pretty nice rich color, it was fully mixed, and even just sitting out, now we’ve got
some juicer separation, and the color’s getting darker which is showing the oxidation.
It’s like when you cut open an apple and it turns brown. We’re losing nutrition as
it’s sitting there. So drink your juices right after made, and if you do have to store
it, say you have to go to work and you can’t bring your juicer to work, you want to put
it in a glass bottle, like these kind of bottles or an old wine bottle, and what you can get
at Target is this thing for like a wine saver, you put the little cork in there, you have
this little suction thing, it sucks out all the air, and then you can have this in an
oxygen deprived environment so the oxidation cannot occur as quickly. And the other way
you can do that is if you just put it in a jar and you don’t want to buy the contraption
you can just put it in a jar of this and just fill it up to the very brim, like overflowing
and then cap it off so you don’t have any oxygen space in there, and then keep the juice
cold, and it’ll save easily for 24 hours. I don’t really like to drink juices older
than 24 hours myself, but once again, good, better, best – fresh juice, even day-old
juice is far better than other things you could be eating. And one of the questions
I always get a lot and I’ve been kind of making a few videos on this topic lately is
the best juicer to purchase, “John what’s the best juicer?” And I kind of talked about
that earlier, like who’s your favorite kid, right? And the best juicer is the one that
you’re going to use the most. So like, maybe “John that one takes too long, ten minutes
is too long, I can juice in this one, and I can juice all my produce in a minute. Or
the Breville, I can literally juice five pounds of carrots in no time, it’ll just zip, zip,
zip, zip, zip, [inaudible] done. I’ve got juice, right?” But if you buy this because
oh it makes a higher quality juice and it does leafy greens better, but then it just
sits there it’s not doing you any good, so then it would be better to just get the
high speed machine at least so you get some juice in you, rather than not. So one of the
factors you may want to consider is the speed, how fast the juicer works, the ease of cleaning,
there’s some juicers that take me five, ten minutes to clean, which frankly I don’t
even use those because even though the juice is the highest quality, it’s just a pain
in the butt, and unless I’m doing a demonstration with it, it sits on the countertop for me.
Another big criteria for many people is yield. I don’t want people to think yield is the
sole criteria only based on the yield, because some of the Brevilles and all this kind of
stuff the high speed machines actually get a higher yield on carrots than say the Omega
NC800 which is a horizontal auger style machine. But the juice quality of the juice you’re
making is higher quality on the slow machine versus the fast machine. So it’s not all
about yield. And the next criteria could be nutrient quality, you know, if I had cancer
or something like that, I probably would not waste my time with a juicer like this, I’d
go to the juicer with the highest quality, and I would get dedicated to using it because
I would want to give my body every possible advantage, every possible nutrient that has
minimal oxidation to it so that I could heal. Noise another big factor for some people,
some people are noise sensitive. Of course you know the blenders are the noisiest, the
high-speed juicers are most noisy, and if you want the quietest juicer, well I’ve
got it on the table, of all the ones I’ve tested. And of course another important criteria
that I would encourage you guys to look for when buying a juicer is a long warranty, right?
Cheap department store juicers and blenders may have a short 30 day, 90 day warranty,
and you get what you pay for, and I know some of these juicers cost a lot of money, but
some of them also have very long warranties. What other appliance can you think about that
has a 15 year warranty? Is there anything anybody can even think of that has a 15 year
warranty? I can’t think of one, I mean, you buy these $1,000 refrigerators you know,
and they got a one year warranty I’m like, that’s a lot of money, I hope it doesn’t
break on the 366th day. But this juicer here has a 15 year warranty, Omega’s a nice established
company, they’ve been in the US for a long time, they’re not going anywhere. And literally
you buy a juicer once it’s a one-time investment for the most part at least for the next 15
years and I’m sure provided you take care of it, it’s going to last beyond that. So
yeah and then something like the Breville might have a one year warranty. So I want
you guys to pay attention to the warranties and try to take all these factors into consideration
when buying a juicer. Another factor is, you know like I talked about the Champion will
make the banana ice cream, which is another way you can get more fruits and vegetables
in you, even though I don’t really advocate people eating things like ice cream that has
the monodiglycerides and corn syrup and GMO stuff and all kinds of additives and it’s
not even real anymore it’s all like plastic food, we want to eat more fruits and vegetables,
so by simply buying the ripe bananas that are in the little bag at the store for cheap,
you can just freeze them yourself and you can put them through certain juicers and you
have banana sorbet or banana ice cream. This is important for kids, you could flavor it
up with some frozen strawberries and cherries and things like that and make it taste real
good to have a nice frozen treat in the summer time, so that’ll move you in the right direction
of eating more fruits and vegetables. And certain juicers will do that task, and others
will not. The types of produce that you should juice
are the ones that you’re not eating. That’s the easiest answer – if you’re not eating
leafy greens, then those are the ones you should juice. Or if you’re not going to
juice them then blend them. Actually I wanted to talk about that for a minute. Some certain
produce items are better blended than others. As is certain produce items are better juiced
than others. So for example, fresh fruits like blackberries or blueberries which I’ve
been eating a lot of lately and here’s a tip – Fresh and Easy market in town has
organic blackberries and raspberries two for four dollars, which is below wholesale price.
I don’t know if the sale’s off, but I’m going to probably go there on the way home.
That’s a real amazing price. But anyways, the berries if you try to juice them, you’re
throwing your money away, because you’re going to get very little juice, a lot of pulp,
and a lot of the nutrients are in the pulp. So for example today for my lunch I ate 20
ounces of organic blueberries, they were on sale at Sprout’s last week. But, it was
4.4 ounces for 1.79 for organic blueberries, amazing, so I stocked up. And got rain checks
when they were out. But yeah, so just like some softer fruits are just better eaten and
then earlier this week I was actually blending my fruits in the blender because they’re
better blended than juiced, so then you get all the nutrients and then you don’t want
to over blend them either, because if you over blend then you’re causing too much
oxidation and you’re losing nutrients. So today I just ate them. But on the other hand,
carrots are something that’s the best juiced in my opinion more than blended. I mean as
you guys can see the slop and look at the color, it’s really oxidizing fast. Actually
that’s a nice test, the color of that versus the color of this. I think that’s a little
bit darker still, even though we juiced, because of more higher speed. But yeah, carrots are
better juiced as is most hard vegetables that have the hard fiber, because we’re not meant
to really digest hard fiber. Like I’ve heard that people say we’re literally fruigavores,
I mean we’re 98% bonobo monkey or something like that, and we think a monkey’s eating
a lot of fruit and they do eat fruits but they also eat leafy greens. So we could easily
digest the fruits, and that’s why we should mostly eat the fruits or blend them. Of course
they can also be juiced, and one of the ways I like to use a juicer with my fruits is especially
when I get poor quality water melons among other things, and poor quality fruits, I really
like to juice them because if you get an organic cantaloupe and you get it it’s hard and
crunchy, and it tastes like one tenth of what you remember a cantaloupe should taste like
which happens to me quite often unfortunately. I’ll put the cantaloupe through the juicer,
then I get the cantaloupe juice without the fiber, which then intensifies the flavor of
it, it’s like “Okay, that’s a much better cantaloupe now,” and I can actually take
it in me because if I just tried to scoop it out and eat it and it’s all crunchy and
not soft and ripe, it’s hard for me to eat fruits these days, especially with the quality
that’s so poor these days. That’s when I like to juice it up. Another thing I like
to juice a lot is actually the pineapple. You can blend pineapple and it blends fairly
well, but I like the juice the pineapple because one of the problems that happens to me on
the pineapple is when you eat a pineapple, your mouth will start to bleed, I don’t
know how many people notice that. It’s only when you eat too much pineapple, if you have
one or two bites it’s not going to happen, but for me, a serving of pineapple is one
whole pineapple, and unless its optimally ripe, which rarely happens in the continental
United States because they’re all getting shipped in and they’re all picked unripe,
they have this [inaudible] enzyme in there that basically breaks down your skin. It’s
in the pineapple so that worms and stuff won’t eat the pineapple because it’ll break down
the worms. It’s like the natural protection of the plant. But when I juice the pineapple
right, I’ve never had my mouth bleed from that, because something in the process of
juicing removes that, it comes out in the fiber and in the juice you just get the nice
delicious pineapple flavor. Oh that’s another reason why you might want
to juice instead of blend. I’ve done taste tests at different talks I’ve given, and
I’ll blend up water melon, which is something that actually is fairly easily blended, something
also fairly easily eaten, and I’ve juiced water melon in the slow juicer, and people
have the water melon in the blender, and water melon’s like 98% water or something, so
there’s very little fiber, but even when they have the blended water melon, and it
was the same water melon, and the juiced water melon, everybody preferred the juiced water
melon made in the slow juicer even over the water melon juice made in the high speed juicer
because you could literally taste the air bubbles that were injected with the higher
speed machines. Let’s see here, so yeah the fibrous vegetables best juiced, also the
leafy greens. Leafy greens – I think they’re better juiced because we are not made like
a cow to digest leafy greens. That being said, they actually also blend fairly well, so if
you want to make something like a green smoothie using some water or coconut water, and then
use some bananas and some leafy greens, that’ll basically fractionate up those leafy greens
to make it much more digestible. That being said it still is running at a higher RPM and
I’d much rather juice them, also because once again, one pound of leafy greens produce
about one cup of juice in my testing. So you know, one pound of leafy greens is a lot of
greens. Most people do not eat that in a day. My goal every day is to get two pounds of
leafy greens, and if I juice one pound of them in the juicer, I have one cup of juice,
boom! I just ate the equivalent of one pound of leafy greens without all the fiber, I’m
going to get a better digestion especially because most people are not chewing everything
up into a mush like they should be. But yeah, so the types of produce you should
juice, the fibrous vegetables and the leafy greens, the fruits I believe are better eaten
whole or blended for the most part. Alright you made it through! I kind of got
cut off there at the end because the battery ran out on the camcorder, but I hope you guys
got a lot of information about that. If you like that format video, you know one hour
long format video, hey please give me a thumbs up, let me know that I should film more of
those and put more of those up for you guys on YouTube that aren’t able to attend my
events live. I travel around a lot, give a lot of lectures, but of course I like also
you know just doing demonstrations for you and sharing with you guys the good news about
the fresh fruits and vegetables and how you can include more them. In the end I want to
say any way you can get more fresh fruits and vegetables in you of course, I would like
you to grow them yourself, pick them and eat them right out of the garden, chew them into
a mush before you swallow them for best digestion. Unfortunately most people don’t have the
time to do that in this day and age, so of course then blending is a good option, but
in my opinion of course juicing is a little bit better option. Be sure to check my other
video direct down below for the six reasons why juicing is better than blending, and be
sure to subscribe to my videos if you’re not already. I have over 400 videos demonstrating

  • Please make more seminar videos!! They are awesome! Do you have dates available? I am a flight attendant and i would travel on my days off to come watch you speak! Also i left a comment on the other video about which is the best juicer to travel with in a 22 inch rollerboard bag. Love your videos and seminars!

  • Awesome! You are always a wealth of information! I turn many people on to your channel because you really teach and weight it all out for us. You helped me get my juicer and dehydrator. Mahalo!

  • Hi John and thank you for another amazing video
    I'd like to purchase the Slowstar juicer but I live In the UK , we don't have Dealers here to offer such machine , and I don't want to buy it from ebay as they're not offering full warranty
    Is there any chance I could contact you in private and make a purchase with UK shopping ?
