Hi! I really want to start juicing but I have an anniversary dinner coming up in a week in a half. If I started juicing and the had that one cheat meal would it ruin my results? Thanks for any replies!
Weight Loss? I have lost 10 lbs., he has lost 12.6lbs. We have a plan for afterwards so as to continue our healthy lifestyle (we are both vegan, me for nearly 8 years, him for 6). Becoming vegan and living a healthy, vibrant lifestyle will always be a process; we transitioned into vegetarianism many years ago, then to being vegan, and now we enjoy lots of raw and cooked vegan food. It did not happen overnight.
Gram for gram, juice is slightly lower in calories due to its slightly higher water content. The calorie content of your juice will be dependent on the combination of produce used in your given juicing recipe. However, this is only the case if you stick to the small 3-fluid ounce portion of juice listed in this chart. Many people drink large cups of juice, which can double or triple the calories listed. Notice that fruits do have a higher calorie content than most non-starchy vegetables, primarily due to their natural sugar content.
Joanne, you’re not starved. Starvation is a lack of nutrition. Hunger is how your body tells you that it needs nutrients. Cravings are when your mind is telling you to eat out of habit, boredom, or for the taste and enjoyment of it. You’re experiencing cravings and not hunger as you get plenty of nutrition while on the juice. If you’re hungry then just have more juice. It’s simple and will work if you stick to it and can get over the cravings.
Lanie, congrats on your first day of juicing! The caffeine withdraw can be hard. Try have an occasional tea and see if it helps. As far as the psychological aspect of chewing I understand completely what you’re going through. Try some sugar free gum, after a juice. It used to help me get over the fact I wasn’t chewing something while taking in nutrients. Also, try some of the frozen juice recipes I have in the recipe section. Those are fantastic and all 100% juice!
Be sure your diet includes: cruciferous vegetables, green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, sulfur rich foods, and fiber. Eliminate sugar and all its relatives (including all artificial sweeteners), bad fats such as fried foods, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, and gluten. There are some links below that lead to some nice recipes, or look online.
The “Morning Glory” recipe isn’t just a fantastic way to lose weight, it can also lower your cholesterol. A study conducted at the Wolfson Gastrointestinal lab in Edinburgh found that consuming seven ounces of raw carrot a day can reduce cholesterol levels by 11%.
When you limit your food intake to only juice, you are limiting your calorie intake, which leads to weight loss. Although you can lose a lot of weight following a juice fast diet, when you lose weight too quickly, you are most likely losing water and lean muscle, not your excess fat. To lose fat weight and keep it off, lose it slowly at about 1 to 2 pounds a week.
This type of juicer is one of the most common varieties you’ll find on the market. A fast juicer (or centrifugal juicer) grinds your fruits and veggies and then pushes the extracted juice through a strainer by spinning at a very high speed. The pulp is extracted and ejected into a special compartment, usually near the back of the juicer. This type of juicer produces pulp-free juice very quickly, but it also tends to extract less juice than other types of juicers. This type of juicer also generates more heat than other types, which some experts say could compromise the nutrients in the produce.
An Auger-style or cold press juicer are typically more expensive. They work by slowly crushing and mashing fruits and vegetables to extract the juice. The advantages of this style of juicer is that they typically leave behind more pulp in the juice. The pulp is from the skin and other fibrous parts of the fruit or vegetable and can add a little boost of fiber to your juices. The down side of these juicers is that they can easily get jammed with tougher fruits or vegetables.

Hi I did the fast for 7 days and started to include solids in my diet. I’ve started worked out as well. It’s been a week since I’ve completed the fast and I’ve noticed I’ve gained about 4 lbs since then and I’ve been eating vegetables and drinking water. Is this likely to happen? Fast weight gain from just eating fruits and vegetables after a juice fast?

Now for the nitty gritty. We enlisted the help of several nutritionists to get a feel for the kinds of things that can happen to the human body when embarking on a juice cleanse. What they came back with is essential reading for you or anyone you know who is thinking about being the conspicuously abstaining-from-food friend for a few days.

I’ve been stalking your website for the past 2 months. Your website has given me a lot of inspiration. I finally went and bought a juicer yesterday. I will be starting my first 10 day juice fast on 10/10/13. I had my thyroid removed in 2009 and have been battling with my weight since then. I’m always tired and feeling bad about myself. I am looking forward to getting my life back. I can do this!

Desperate for answers and tired of the mundane complacency I had an wise old man tell me that if juicing worked to help him rid his body from cancer, what would it do for me? Healthy but not at the level of performance I wanted to be in I decided to take a chance and boy am I glad I did.
Purchase juicing resources. Following a juicing diet can be complicated. There are a variety of different diet plans, juices and methods for juicing. Purchasing or researching recipes and eating plans can help you follow the plan more easily.
If you want to add exercise, get familiar with your body. Cardio only loses weight while you do it, and weight lifting can burn calories for hours after working out. With this in mind, I lift weights on a circuit at the recreation center for about an hour, you don’t have to lift real heavy but try to push yourself a little. Now your body is burning calories and storing necessities into your muscles, go get on the treadmill or bicycle and you will burn calories at twice the speed during cardio.
Hey there I’m going to start a 20 day juice cleanse and detox! I have lost 73 pounds on my own through exercise and clean eating! I’ve been struggling with trying to lose the last 25 pounds! Is it safe to exercise while juicing only? I’m starting my cleanse in January!
Antanisha, when I fast I go strictly juice. When I come off of my fast I’ll start to include solids. I didn’t exercise at all on my first fast but if you hit a plateau with your weight loss, exercise is good way to keep losing the weight. Again,
I see that I should start the day with 1/2 lemon with 12-16 oz of warm to hot water. How important is the temperature? For some reason, I don’t know, I’m not able to drink warm-hot water, makes me throw up. Is it ok to drink cold water w/lemon to start the day? I am really enjoying your site. I’m learning lots and can’t wait to get started! Thank you for all the wonderful information and taking the time to answer questions!

You can find no known unwanted effects to juice diets. Once the body consumes it every day, most of its nutritional needs are met. Plus, it gets the rest of the benefits too. Hence, you obtain plenty of value in a single juice each day than by cooking and eating exactly the same ingredients.
Pomegranate juice is great for your skin and to get back your natural glow, but it may also help in weight loss. According to Delhi-based Weight Management Expert, Dr. Gargi Sharma, “Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, polyphenols and conjugated linolenic acid – all of which help you burn fat and boost your metabolism. Pomegranate juice also helps in suppressing your appetite.”
So here is my question …I just finished a 1/2 a**ed first day of juicing, trying a few different things including a blended green smoothie (beauty detox smoothie) for breakfast and lunch. Can I combine blended smoothies to get the same results? Or should I only juice? You say 4-6 16-20oz servings, so to give me a goal… Would 80oz be sufficient? And how much water in addition to the juice?
My husband and I started juicing on the 11th of May 2014 and its been 11 days the first 3 days i lost 7 lbs. and my husband lost 8, after the 5th day my husband and I weighed our selves and he lost 3 more lbs and I lost 2 and then he stopped juicing and I kept going, so on the tenth day witch would be 5 days after that I weighed myself and only lost a pound. is there something that I am doing wrong?
Note that it is advisable to make the juice at home rather than buy it outside. Fresh juice made with a base of vegetables contains much more nutrition than that in the carton. Even fresh, store-bought juices often have sugars, additives, and preservatives, meaning a lot of unnecessary calorie intake.
Mike, are you only consuming the juices? You can’t have any solids whatsoever. Tea is okay but no sweetener and coffee is out. You should be sticking to an 80/20 ratio of veggies to fruits to make sure you aren’t including too much sugar in your diet. Are you also drinking plenty of water immediately after you drink a juice and throughout the day? It’s important to do this to help with the absorption of the juices. Also, make sure you are drinking at least 4 juices per day with each being around 16 ounces.
I’m starting this juicing thing and I wanted to know what kind of juice should I have before a workout? Like I wake up at 0430, drink warm water and lemon..how long should I wait before I drink a juice then workout? After the work out I drink another juice and then around lunch, 2pm, 5:30pm, go for another work out, come home and drink my last drink is this okay? I am trying to get a schedule together so I know what I’m doing everyday and what stuff to purchase so I don’t waste any food.
