When Dallyn Pavey felt a few extra pounds settling onto her petite 5-foot-1-inch frame, the King of Prussia-based restaurant publicist turned to juicing to get back into balance.

"I did it to lose weight and have healthier meal options," she said. "Since I eat out so much because of my job, and my willpower is not so good, I have packed on quite a few extra pounds."

She started juicing twice a day right after Thanksgiving and dropped four pounds in two weeks. Although she got off track during the holidays, Pavey's back to her routine now. Here's her current fave juice blend.
