      I am a diabetic who is looking for a juice recipe to make my own smoothies. My medical history also includes Hepatitis C, which has been practically eradicated, heart issues, including a valve replacement, celulitis and the fact that I need to lose about 40 pounds. What would you recommend for me, given this medical history? And could you also give me an idea of amounts, so that I can mix the ingredients properly?

      Thanks so much.

      Sincerely,

      Jon Kaufmann
