Chocolate is a delicious way to include flavonoids and other antioxidants in your diet. Using raw organic cocoa powder is one of the best options, since it contains no added sugar. Nutrient and fiber-rich spinach is mild enough that its flavor doesn’t compete with the chocolate. This juice also includes blackberries, which provide fiber, anthocyanins, vitamin C, and a little sweetness, as well as avocado for creaminess, healthy fats, and antioxidant vitamin E.
Start your day out strong and have some lemon and warm water first thing when you wake up. It will help set the pace throughout the day. Also, don’t think that less is better and less will make you lose weight fast. Make sure you are having between 4-6 juices per day with each being about 16-20 ounces. Do that, drink plenty of water, get some good sleep and the detox part will be through really fast. After the first 3-5 days you’ll get a rush of energy and you’ll start feeling fantastic! Just keep at it, stay focused on your goals, and you’ll do just fine. I’ll be here if you have any questions. Keep me posted Liz!
Juicing also allows you to consume much more fruit and vegetables (but be careful of putting too much fruit in your diet) than you would typically do in a regular diet. It also helps to suppress hunger pangs, which mean you can avoid succumbing to unhealthy foods that go straight to your waistline.
So far, it’s been an exceptionally warm winter for many people—but there’s no telling when our old friend the polar vortex might decide to show up. Winter isn’t a great time to start a juice cleanse because many people do look to hot foods and beverages to help maintain body temperatures during the colder months. Picture it: When it’s 20 degrees outside, a hot tea for weight loss may be a better choice than a cold pressed juice.
Some people have compared the energy boost of this juice to that of an energy drink, except without the inevitable crash. Plus you get a lot of wholesome natural goodness in a deliciously fruity juice.
In the SparkPeople Community, we get questions about juicing all the time. Should I be juicing? Will juicing improve my health? Does juicing help with weight loss? While you may be looking for a quick answer, it isn’t that simple. Like many things in nutrition and weight loss, there is not a one-size-fits-all answer to the topic of juicing. Read on to find out if juicing can benefit you and your goals.
Hi, I have one question. I am battling Psoriatic Arthritis, in fact, it is at the worst I’ve ever endured. I have been researching because most of the medicines I’ve been prescribed only lower my immune system, which is why I think I’m in the fix I’m in now. I found a wonderful chiropractor who says all his patients have been healed of Psoriasis simply by following a juicing protocol and eliminating nightshades and a few other foods that trigger Psoriasis.

Great site. I’m fixing to do this for my first time. I need to lose 30 pounds of baby fat!!! It seems like a lot to me right now because my 1200 calorie diet is so slow!!!! Only 4 pounds in 12 days. I want results like now. Maybe you should have people volunteer(not me) to do before and after photos so moms like me can see that losing baby fat is attainable. Then maybe more moms would be inspired to be healthier. It’s hard when your goal weight just seems so far away. It can be pretty depressing.
I subscribed to your weight loss program and I’m doing your 28 day juice cleanse and loving it. I’m so happy with the rapid, positive changes I’m seeing and how my body is responding to the cleanse. I have lost about 10lbs since the beginning of the year. And I have a long way to go. I’m hoping this jump start inspires me to keep going.
Aaron: To lose 30-40 pounds you basically juice until you’ve lost 30-40 pounds. I know, stupid answer but everyone is different. You may lose 10 pounds a week the first two weeks then drop to 5 pounds a week, or you may lose 5 pounds a week from the start. You could also wind up losing 10 or more pounds a week and sustain that rate. So I would honestly go into it committed to 4 weeks of juicing and see how it goes. As for the caffeine headaches…with the juicing and water intake you will be surprised how good you feel. That said…if you do get the headache I would not be against having ONE Dr. Pepper a day to kill the headache. Personally I think a cup of coffee or green tea would be a better alternative though but with all the juice, you are still gonna lose weight even with a soda a day.
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.
really enjoy you site. we started out with the 30 day challenge some months ago. didn’t have any idea how to start. visited several sites , none compare to what you offer. haven’t commented on here before, or any site for that matter, but as much as we “use” your services, thought i’d take the time and brag on you.

Plenty of water is locked up in your muscles with glycogen. “When you eat a low-calorie diet, you use up those glycogen stores, and you lose the water weight with it,” says lalifechef.com’s Seth Santoro. The excitement is temporary, though; Santoro adds that you’ll gain that water weight right back when you return to your normal diet.

I have been juicing for 10 days now and have not lost one pound. I weigh myself at the same time in the morning after using the restroom and before drinking water or juice. I drink 6 16ounce servings of juice a day. I follow the 80 percent veggie 20 percent fruit method. I drink plenty of water, about the same amount or more than the juice. I am a server, so i am fairly active just because of my job. I am at a complete loss. I just got a colonic today to see if that will help. I just want to lose a little weight and some belly and chest fat. I am very disappointed after pushing through this incredibly difficult fast to not see any results. Any thoughts? I feel like i am going to stop after day 14 because it just doesn’t seem worth the deprivation.
My first thought was to include it all in my blog, but I quickly realized I needed a custom solution to help teach you how to lose weight with juicing, so… I created a juicing for weight loss program for people who are looking to lose weight with juicing the right way without wasting time!
I took a few deep breaths, determined what and how much could I do, what bothered me the most. I decided I had to pick a time of day to juice, stick to it, organize that refrigerator, make this into an adventure and make this journey my own.
Teresa, don’t focus on matching your husbands weight loss. The weight loss will happen at different frequencies and different spurts for everyone. Make sure you are weighing yourself first thing in the morning after you use the restroom and before you have a juice. Weigh yourself at the same time every day. Your weight will fluctuate throughout the day as you drink and use the restroom. You are doing fine Teresa, just hang in there and don’t focus on the numbers on the scale. Scales have a habit of lying and deceiving us. Focus on how you feel and how your clothes fit. You’ll find that is a much easier way to tell if you are losing weight and feeling better. Stay strong! Keep me posted on your progress Teresa! Cheers!
Sure, you can follow the plan I loosely laid out for you above or you can dial it in for breakthrough results with his method. Even if you cheat a bit you will still get great results with it. Give it a try and then email me those before and after pictures so I can brag about you here on The Juicer Directory.
I have been juicing for 8 weeks now. I did the 7lbs in 7 days to start and lost 11lbs and have continued with the turbo boost for the rest of the time. I have so far lost 30lbs and people tell me I look 10 years younger and I feel amazing! This has truly changed my life and approach to eating. Many thanks!
I’ll be honest here, I called this green not because it uses a lot of green leafy veggies but the output will be green. In fact, the only green vegetable in this recipe is spinach and you can put lots of it, depending on your taste buds.
The bottom line is that both the colon cleanse and the quality of water you chose will have a very minimal effect on the weight you lose and the health you gain while on your fast. Both are your choices to make LeeLee. I’m here if you have any questions.
