Ben Greenfield Fitness

The world around us continually requires more of us while we give less and less thought to our long-term health. This distracted and overwhelmed mindset has landed us squarely in survival mode, depriving us of the necessary steps to create lasting, sustained energy. The truth is most of us are so exhausted and don't know how to find the energy to live our best lives.

Ben Greenfield Fitness

I'll admit that I've never been a fan of the "juicing" and "cold-pressed juice" trend. Most of these juices are full of sugar that provide very little of the actual fiber and water you'd find in whole fruit. Yet, recently, I've begun drinking actual liquid juices again, as have my wife and kids.
