After hearing about it from friends, a few months ago I decided to try a juice cleanse, not only to lose a few pounds, but for overall health. I was cautioned that this should not be attempted without the guidance of a nutritionist, so I consulted Sirena, who had come highly recommended. Check out her website www.sirenapellarolo.com
I did not want to make my own cold-pressed vegetable juices, since there are so many places offering this service everywhere, now that juicing is a hot trend. I tried a few and was especially happy with these 2 sources.
JUICE SERVED HERE
They have a “window” in our neighborhood at their production facility
3731 S. Robertson, Culver City 90232 (across from Fedex, South of Venice Blvd)
THE RAW JUICERY
Sold at various farmers markets (cheaper at $20 for 3 juices in plastic bottles)
What I discovered is that juicing is a great way to add more raw vegetables to your daily diet, in combination with a variety of foods, raw and cooked, vegan choices and lean proteins (from animals raised without antibiotics).
Please send us your own experiences with healthy diet regimens.

P.S. Pressed Juicery is the cheapest with deals like $20 for 4 juices or $29.50 for 6. They have many locations.
.Juices Served Here has moved from Robertson, it was replaced by Renew Juicery.
You can find them in the food court of the Century City Shopping Center.
