I wrote not too long ago about my curiousity with starting juice. So I have! I’m on day 3 of juicing and I am shocked that it hasn’t been as difficult as I thought that it would be. I am focusing on health so I didn’t even bother with weighing myself. I just want to feel and be healthier and I’m hoping weight lose just comes along with that. I am doing well and have enjoyed a lot of the recipes and tips on your site. For that, I thank you. I was only going to try 3 days as I thought it would be torture, but I am planning to continue for as long as I can and trying for at least 10 days now. My question for you is about weight lose what a good plan would be for juicing. How long should someone juice at a time if they want to lose weight and get healthy? What would you recommend? 14 days on and 14 off? 10 a month?
Okay, I’ll be honest – this isn’t a juice blend for the faint-hearted. However, if you’re the kind of person who likes a kick in your drinks, and you’re not too sensitive to heat, this spicy drink is the perfect blend of delicious vegetables and citrus-tang.
You need to get a juicer and make fresh juice with vegetables to get the full benefits. The goal is to eliminate toxins not accumulate them with preservatives etc found in V8 juice and store bought juices. You will miss a lot of macro-nutrients if you dont juice a variety of vegetables and fruit.
When I originally started juicing I would add a lot of apples in my veggie juices but nowadays I like my veggie juices mainly made up of veggies and to make it taste nicer I use a lot of lemon. I do alternate sometimes, if I have kale, I add kale, or spinach or cabbage, sometimes even broccoli.
Write up a meal plan. After researching a variety of juicing diets, you may realize there are a variety of options to choose from. If you’re not following a specific plan, it may be helpful to write up your own meal plan to ensure you’re maintaining a well-balanced and healthy diet.

If the aforementioned concepts are taken into effect the juicing recipes which follow will be perfectly crafted. The high vegetable content combined with the taste of fresh fruit will provide a fun and healthy way to shed pounds quickly.
Try a Juicy Smoothie. Use the fresh juice you make as the liquid component in your favorite smoothie. You can also add the discarded pulp as well. Blend in some ground flaxseed, nut butter or avocado for healthy fats and some yogurt for protein. You’ll end up with a complete balanced meal.
It’s easy to fall into the trap that many juicing aficionados fall into and to drink too many high sugar foods like apples and carrots. While they taste great, they are high in sugar, spiking the levels of sugars and insulin in your blood stream.
Combine all three and you’ll get a very bitter drink that is best taken before every meal – this will suppress your appetite and help you eat less. The ginger is optional if you want some spiciness to contrast the bitter flavor.
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.
Figure out how many meals you’re replacing with juice or how much juice you’d like to consume each day. You’ll find some diets recommend consuming a certain amount of juice throughout the day. For example, 1-2 servings of a “green” or vegetable based juice.

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!

Paola, congrats on starting your juice fast! It’s an exciting and life changing experience if you stick with it. I met a lady who juiced for over 80 days, and a man who juiced for over 100 days. It’s safe, and it’s okay to do. The main thing you have to understand is that you are getting all of the nutrition you need on a juice fast, even protein. You don’t get insoluble fiber but it’s not necessary and you will get that when you go off of your fast and start eating solids again.
Abby, welcome to JOJ and congrats on 8 days of juicing and 11 pounds lost! Sorry you heard some bad news today. Hop back on your fast and forget you ate anything. It will pass and you’ll be fine. Just don’t make a habit of it. Juice like normal and you’re body will work it’s magic. Hope all is alright Abby, keep me posted and know that I’m always here if you need me.
Don’t Pitch the Pulp. You can still reap the benefits of that fiber-rich pulp by adding it to soups, stews, grain and rice dishes, pasta sauces, muffins and quick breads. Don’t let those nutrients go to waste—get creative with them in the kitchen.
Some medications interact with certain fruit juices. Always talk to your doctor prior to starting any juicing program to make sure it’s safe and appropriate for you to consume a variety of juices.
A: Hi Larry! Juicing does help most people shed pounds. There are so many factors involved with losing weight. It could be what you are eating besides the juicing that tacks on pounds. It could be lack of sleep or stress and medications…
I m thinking of starting juicing and i recently tried some fruit- vegetables cold pressed juices to see what i like and dont before i purchase all the ingredients . I was wondering do you juice all day long ? or you juice for a meal or two and then have a sensible healthy dinner for example? Any feedback will be appreciated. Thank you
Wow Carrie that’s great! keep it up. The hardest part of any weight loss journey is actually keeping it off but once you’ve built momentum you have to sustain it. My suggestion would be not stacking any junk food at home, trust me if you have it in there you will eat it and always keep your body hydrated. Sometimes hunger pangs is caused by dehydration.
Freshly squeezed orange juice could be a healthier, low-calorie alternative to all your fizzy drinks and colas. Orange is considered to be a negative calorie fruit which means that it contains fewer calories than what your body requires to burn it. Simply put, you burn more than you eat!
Tammy, thank you for your awesome comment. I do my best to help. I’m glad juicing has had a positive effect on you. It does so much more than help us to lose weight. Just keep doing what your doing Tammy, it’s working!
This information is very interesting. Juices are important because it is possible to create a lot of recipes. The bad think is that it is needed to drink them in a short period of time, if not, juices losses their vitamns. Here some information about juices: http://tiny.cc/juices
My husband and I are on Day 9; our goal is 14 days and I am confident we will follow through! We feel great! Just juice, warm lemon water and herbal teas. We drink plenty of juice to stave off hunger and encourage one another to stay motivated.
