DAY 16
 Yes, you should juice. Without a shadow of a doubt, a daily low-glycemic green juice will help you thrive. My basic juicing rule is a 3:1 ratio—3 veggies to 1 low-glycemic piece of fruit. You can also add lemon as it has very little sugar. Cheers!  —Kris Carr

Chris Freytag's rule of the day: Focus on the two Rs: range of motion (ROM) and resistance. Research shows that moving through the full ROM for an exercise engages more muscle fibers, speeds fat loss, and helps you maintain more lean mass than if you add extra weight but shorten your movement. So before adding weight, make sure you're nailing proper form. (Watch this week's WOW video to make sure you're doing each exercise correctly.) When you're ready to start adding resistance, choose a weight that leaves your muscles fatigued after 12 to 15 reps. If you can easily pump out 20 to 30 reps of an exercise, pick up heavier weights.
