Whole foods always provide more fiber. As expected, fiber content is always higher in the whole produce since it is primarily found in the pulp, which is removed with the traditional juicing process. Fiber is one of the key reasons that fruits and vegetable are so good for us.
Ginger adds a touch of spiciness to this drink, if you don’t like this flavor disregard it but it does a great job masking the strong flavor of spinach (trust me you’ll like this with ginger than without).

You’ll always continue to lose weight when you’re on the fast but one thing I wouldn’t recommend that you do is weigh yourself every day. That scale can be so motivational, but it can also be very demotivating too. Check your weight every few days but most importantly judge your success by how you feel, how you look, and how your clothes fit. You’ll succeed Lanie! I can’t wait to hear back from you on your success! Keep me posted and I’m here if you have any questions.
You give your WHOLE BODY a chance to “clean house”. Without the added burden of digestion, which takes a LOT of time and energy, the body is now free to work on other things like detoxing the liver and kidneys…and the remains of all those Ramen Noodles you used to eat! When we drink Raw vegetable juices, the situation is entirely different, as these [micronutrients] are digested and assimilated within 10 to 15 minutes after we drink them and they are used almost entirely in the nourishment and regeneration of the cells and tissues, glands and organs of the body. In this case the result is obvious, as the entire process of digestion and assimilation is completed with a maximum degree of speed and efficiency, and with a minimum of effort on the part of the digestive system. – Dr. Norman Walker: “Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices“, Pg 9
this is my third time on a juice fast. I was reading some of the comments and noticed I was doing some things wrong. I have been drinking coffee and home brewed teas with artificially sweeteners and have eaten a couple pieces of fruit. th is time I started off weighing 254 lost 12lbs in the first week and have since only lost 3 in the last 4 days. that’s 15 lbs in 11 days . I need to lose another 45 lbs. I’m exercising s few times a week. if I cut out the caffeine and the occasional fruit how long of a juice fast do you think it would take me to lose that much weight?
Hi Donnie,,,,, I really don’t like many fruits and vegetable,,,,,was wondering if oranges,lime and pinaapple will work fast for me,,,,,, or is the sugar content going to get in the way? And how many glasses of juice is one suppose to consume in a day? Thanks

Just limit it to no more than a few days, Ravussin said, so that your short-term nutrient- and calorie-deficits don’t turn into actual health problems. And whatever weight you lose during that time…don’t expect to keep it off for long.
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.

Cabbage juice helps in relieving a lot of stomach problems like bloating and indigestion, clears up your digestive tract and helps in quicker elimination of wastes. This aids your weight loss process. A lot of studies have shown that an increased intake of fiber can help in fighting fat. “High-fiber vegetables absorb the water in our body and form a gel like mass during digestion. This slows down the process and helps you to feel full for longer and prevents binging on other foods,” explains Weight Management Expert, Gargi Sharma. You can blend cabbage with an apple and lime or with sweet veggies like carrot and beetroot.
If you do use juice to augment your weight-loss plan, realize that calories from juice can add up quickly if you include a lot of fruit in your mix. The sugars in the fruit also spike your insulin levels, leading to energy swings and inhibiting weight loss. Some weight-loss juice plans are too low in calories, so you won’t have the energy for exercise and daily chores that burn calories. You may not be consuming a lot of calories, but without ample daily activity, you aren’t burning a lot either. As a result, you may not be creating a very large calorie deficit, and your weight loss slows down. Furthermore, if you get out of the habit of daily exercise, it’s that much harder to add it back in once you return to eating regular food. The result may be a sudden return of any pounds lost. A weight-loss plan that creates a deficit through moderate calorie reduction and increased calorie burning with exercise is more sustainable for the long term.
If you feel like you don’t know the first thing about weight loss or wonder why you’re doing specific things within the program, I explain every detail about your new lifestyle in a 50-page guide called the, “Table of Knowledge”.
Juice fasting is the safest way to reduce weight. On average, you lose one pound a day. A 14 day fast would take off about 14 pounds. If you follow some general guidelines on juice fasting that are outlined on the juice fasting page, you should be able to tackle it on your own.
There is one thing that is incorrect about juiding, and that’s the concept of your body not working as hard to digest and avoiding toxins. The fiber from fruits and vegetables is what actually make it easier to digest these foods. Remember our bodies were biologically engineered for thousands of years to process these foods and so they do so with ease. Juicing removed the fiber and the ability to synthesize some of this energy. Toxins come from the air, our skin, and all foods. Again our body has a beautiful system in place to filter these. Juicing doesn’t help or hinder the body and doesn’t provide a detox. Juicing will help you lose weight because items you can juice are 99% fruits and veggies. Near doesn’t taste too good when juiced so people don’t do it. This is why weight loss occurs. You in essence become a raw vegan for as long as you juice. You could easily eat these gods without juicing.
It’s great to start off your day with a glass of amla juice. It helps in keeping your digestive system on track throughout the day and accelerates your metabolism. A faster metabolism helps in burning fat quickly. For better weight management, it is often suggested to drink amla juice on an empty stomach. Add a drop of honey as a form of natural sugar that will keep you active and energetic through the day.

Cranberries are the white berries of evergreen shrubs that turn a brilliant hue of red once ripened on the stem. The longer cranberries are allowed to ripen, the darker red they become and less tart they become. Cranberry juice made from straight cranberries is a…
Some individuals keen on adding sweeteners along with other ingredients like ice or spices to boost the taste. That’s because a few of the juices you extract from raw vegetables don’t contain any natural sugars and may taste bland. However, it’s not necessarily recommended to take action since they eliminate a few of the nutrients and vitamins in the pulp or juice itself. To resolve this problem, in a single juice is ideal for taste proper combinations of fruit and veggies.
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!
I used to think that protein powders are nasty tasting but on the contrary, there are brands that make great tasting protein powders that when combined with the right vegetables will give you a filling and nutrition rich drink that will also supply the body with the protein that your muscles feed on.
