In terms of flavor, I’d go with the mean green toxin flusher, not too sweet and too strong, balance is just right. I’d rather not add the apple but I still not really used to the strong flavor of the greens in this recipe so I’d still add a piece.
Timing is crucial when juicing. The living enzymes and nutrients inside natural produce die off within a few hours of being exposed to the open air. They may survive a bit longer with refrigeration but max benefit will be achieved if the juice is consumed immediately after creation.
The easiest way to juice to lose weight is to create a meal plan that includes the weight you want to lose, the fruits and vegetables you’ll be consuming daily, and how many meals you’ll be replacing with juice per day. Buy a juicer or blender for easy mixing, and use frozen fruits or vegetables to incorporate foods that aren’t in season.

The second is masticating juicers which are much more effective when juicing highly nutritious greens like spinach, kale, etc. It also produces the highest quality and quantity of juices than centrifugal juicers.

The benefits of juicing for weight loss are clear. You’ll feel less hungry, more energized, more alert and better than ever before. Plus, you’ll quickly begin to shed those pounds. What could be better than losing weight while drinking delicious fresh juice.
Thanks so much! It’s so true…what a whirlwind! Traveling over the weekend and found an amazing Juice bar to keep me on the fast. Tried wheatgrass for the 1st time followed by a green juice combo adding extra lemon and ginger….TOTALLY wired! Seriously, I just finished Day 5 and couldn’t feel better! My daughter’s been taking a spoon of chia seeds to hydrate for races, so this am, I tried it too (for fiber) and protein and just because they’re so darn good for you. Followed it up with large glass of water – no big deal, so I’ll continue that as well.
Flavour – Most of us could do with eating more healthy vegetables. Juicing helps us get the goodness of these in a much more flavourful way than eating raw vegetables. It can also help meet you 5-a-day requirement if you aren’t doing so already.
When eating a low-calorie diet, water stored in your muscles with glycogen gets used up—which causes your skin to feel dry. “Balance is the key,” says Antonia Burrell, associate lecturer in the chemistry of aromatherapy at the London College of Fashion. Burrell says that a prolonged juice cleanse can lead to a drier skin and potentially prematurely-aged skin because of the lack of essential fatty acids being consumed. Yikes!

This will allow you to keep track of the effects that your positive lifestyle changes are having on you (i.e. losing 30lbs in a month like me!). I know it’s important to see your progress as well as feel it.
Eat enough protein. Although juicing allows you to consume larger quantities of fruits and vegetables, juice provides little to no protein. In order to maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet, it’s important to consume adequate protein each day.

Although juicing doesn’t actually shrink the stomach, it does temporarily eliminate the possibility to eat for comfort. The upshot of that is that you will feel satiated with less food than usual, immediately after you’re done with the cleanse. This situation can provide a big psychological boost that some people need to experience so that they can change their eating behaviors and stop sabotaging their weight loss.
Alethadan, if you have a goal in mind, you’re best to just juice until you hit that goal. I think it would be good if you juiced until you got within 10 pounds of your goal and them started to add in fresh fruits and veggies. This will help you continue losing weight while eating solids. It will also help you to maintain your weight once you reach your goal. Congrats on your success this far, you are doing really good! Keep up the good juicing!
