Q: Hi, My name is Victor Justice and I am a BKA (Below Knee Amputee). I am new to juicing as I am trying to lose weight because after the operation you can't really do anything until the bottom of your stump heals. So, I have put on the pounds.
Now that my leg is healed enough I can get back to a close as normal life. I have looked on your website (by the way a ton of info, made it one of my favs) but I can't seem to find anything that has to do with a pre or post workout.
A: Hi Victor, Congrats on getting your life back to normal! I am assuming you want some info for juicing/smoothie-ing for your workouts.
In that case, you'll want to have something with lots of carbs pre-workout and something with protein post-workout.
Examples of a carb & energy full pre-workout juice would be a carrot/apple mix or a green + fruit mix. I wouldn't drink it right before, however, because it could make you feel full. Leave yourself some time after you drink the juice.
Examples of a protein rich post-workout drink would be a green smoothie. You can find lots of green smoothie recipes here.
Greens have a tremendous amount of protein, but stick to the best- romaine and spinach!
Hope that help answered your question, and good luck with your workouts!

Took my BP today. It was lower than its ever been. It's that juicing! Love it! I also don't feel like I need my daily coffee pick me up! Feeling great.
