  1. I think carrot juice actually ends up being best for weight loss because it is a bit on the sweeter side and satisfies those first week cravings. Once that passes, I recommend people go more green with Kale and Spinach juices. A few of the main recipes I used are featured at http://www.juicingrecipesbook.com because I run and manage the site, but I do like the Carrot Juice Dream recipe that you've posted. Explanations on nutrition and taste would be nice here.
