Hi I have been juicing now for 8 days and lost 11lb already but still have at least 20lb to go. Just had some bad news today and ended up eating things that I shouldn’t as long as I carry on the diet how will my body react to the excess intake an will I put a lot of weight back on again??
Heidi, congrats on day 3 of your juice fast! If you didn’t eat anything during those three days you may still be on detox. The detox usually lasts 3-5 days depending on your previous eating habits. You’ll know when you’re off detox as you’ll start to feel really good when those toxins are out of your system. As far as weight I think 20 pounds is achievable. I doubt you will gain it back if you stick to making healthy choices in your diet. It’s only when you revert to previous eating habits that you’ll gain it back. Granny Smith apples are better because they contain less sugar. Less sugar means faster weight loss.
Im not a expert, I started juicing a month ago. I needed to loose some weight & lower my bad cholesterol. I began & didnt have any craving for anything else. I lost 15 lbs. & better yet I wasn’t so depressed ! I got energy now! & haven’t told anybody but people say they havent seen me smile ha, & look great. I love it. Nothing to argue about.
Prepare sample juices. Before purchasing a large quantity of fruits and veggies, try making a few small servings of different blends of juices. This will prevent you from wasting items you may not enjoy as a juice.
Thanks for sharing this helpful site. I am going to start juicing on the 6th oh January after my family and I get back from vacation. My question for you (so I understand this correctly) is I only juice 3 times a day and don’t eat any food, right? Then I also drink water throughout the day to right? I am looking to lose 15 pounds and am excited to give this a try! Not only would I like lose weight but I want to increase my energy level as well:-). Thanks for your time and all your help!
Fresh juices should not be confused with smoothies, which are usually made in a blender, food processor, or high-powered juicer and include the fibrous pulp of the fruit and vegetable ingredients (and can often contain a blend of fruit, vegetables, juice, dairy and other ingredients).

Hi! My juicer comes next week. I want to lose a few pounds before I go to the beach in Juky. Should I juice all my meals and not eat anything solid? How many glasses per day? Any suggesting juices to make to lose weight fast? Should I add protein to my juices?

Broccoli stem? That’s right! Don’t throw it out after cutting off the florets for cooking, save it for juices! The stem has a milder flavor than the buds, but contains just as many nutrients including fiber, antioxidants, vitamin E and selenium, and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, broccoli contains compounds that increase the activity of detoxifying enzymes in the liver. Cilantro is a great source of vitamin C, and it may help encourage detoxification by binding to heavy metals.
Eat at least 1200 calories daily. Consuming less than 1200 calories daily, especially for more than a few days, is not a safe or healthy way to lose weight. Ensure that whatever juicing diet or plan you choose, that you’re able to consume adequate calories daily.
Hi. I juiced for 7 days and I lost 4kgs (I think you call that 8 pounds) I cannot believe it. I still dont actually believe it. People have been commenting on my skin and I’ve been told by my nanny and my husband that I’m looking younger (might be my energy is up?) I noticed the following benefits:
There is no need to chop them if you are using a centrifugal or horizontal auger juice extractor but on a vertical type like a Hurom H-100 you need to chop them into smaller pieces so it does not clog.
I work 12 hour shifts 7a-7p at least three times a week. What would be the best way for me to do a juicing diet with my crazy hours. I read somewhere else that the juice should be dranked immediately after making it. My juicer is to big to take to work, do you know of any small portable juicers? Thanks in advance.
I am on the end of day 3 of a 30 day juice fast. Been following your recipes and tried one of my own, it isn’t going too badly. I didn’t eat at all Day 1 (I drive all day at my job, so bathroom trips are prized occurrences). Question 1: Since I didn’t eat day one, is my body still on detox day 3? Question 2: I am 5’10”, 170lbs. Can I expect to lose about 20lbs? How much do you think I will gain back after if I continue doing paleo or raw afterwards? Question 3: Are Granny Smith apples better nutritionally? I have read they are easier on the juicer, but they are also more expensive! This blog is really helping me, I appreciate this site so much!
Angela, you lower your chances of weight loss when you include solids into the juice fast. If you want the best results then lose the protein shake, frozen fruits, almond milk, chia seeds and don’t snack on any nuts or raisins. This will up the amount of weight you lose big time. Let me know what happens. I’m here if you have any questions.
You will lose weight while on the cleanse, but it will be from your muscles and from water weight. “Losing weight like this can cause dizziness, nausea, constipation, and fatigue,” says Kaufman. “It’s very likely that you will gain all the weight back once you’re off the cleanse because you have less muscle mass to burn off the calories.” This kind of change to your body is a perfect example of sneaky reasons you gain weight.

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).

Pomegranate juice can protect your heart and blood vessels. Ithelps slow the buildup of cholesterol, and contains antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals that destroy cells. In fact, the Consumer Reports website explains that pomegranate juice contains more antioxidant polyphenols than green tea, red wine and cranberry juice.
Pineapple juice is believed to be a great remedy for belly fat. An important enzyme called bromelain which is found in the juice of pineapple helps in metabolizing protein and burns away excess stomach fat. Moreover, bromelain works with other enzymes such as lipase to digest fats and suppress your appetite. Just like oranges, pineapple is also a catabolic food which means that your body spends more calories to burn the fruit than it actually contains.

All Natural – Since juicing uses all natural produce, you can limit your exposure to processed foods. The chemicals and additives in such foods actively contribute to weight gain. Going natural, especially if you use organic produce, can avoid exposing you to such risks. Additionally, juicing is free from all preservatives since you control exactly what goes into each drink.1
