Probably: Juicing may work for brief time but could hardly be maintained the rest of your life. Temporary fixes do not work.

Do your research: Decide whole food blender or juice extractor. Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. More veggies than fruits. Can add in protein such as rice protein. Lots of hydration with h20. Reserach first - get your doctor's ok.
