An Auger-style or cold press juicer are typically more expensive. They work by slowly crushing and mashing fruits and vegetables to extract the juice. The advantages of this style of juicer is that they typically leave behind more pulp in the juice. The pulp is from the skin and other fibrous parts of the fruit or vegetable and can add a little boost of fiber to your juices. The down side of these juicers is that they can easily get jammed with tougher fruits or vegetables.
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.
Micheale, I think you are well within your means to hit your goal of losing a dress size and a half. You can take your juices with you to work as long as you keep them in an airtight container and store them in a refrigerator. I wish you all the best! Keep me posted on progress. Cheers!
Alexcia, based on my experiences it costs around $10 per day. Very inexpensive if you consider how much people spend eating out or even cooking in three or more times per day. Servings should be around 16-20 ounces and you should have 4-6 servings per day. I hope this helps.
The biggest thing I noticed within about 3 days of starting the cleanse is that my joints don’t ache so much. I know I had a lot of inflammation. My fingers ached a lot and knees and hips, but now it’s much much less. The other thing I’ve started checking is my BP. Honestly, I was scared to take it before I started. I know it was rarely if ever under 140/90 with a heart rate in the upper 80s or even low 90’s. I just took it this evening and it was 128/77 with a heart rate of 71. Pretty dramatic results in a short time frame.

I have a scale that measures body fat but I learned not to rely on its reading. The reading varied a lot. To get a successful reading that way you’ll have to not eat 4 hours prior to hopping on the scale and you’ll have to refrain from any exercise for 12 hours before hopping on. Here’s an article that states how to accurately measure your body fat percentage.
You know how a tangerine can help your body absorb the iron in spinach? That kind of food-combo teamwork is a real thing and can be really affected by a juice cleanse. “Good fats are very important for the correct functioning of our body’s internal processes. Removing these from the diet can mean the body can’t perform at its optimum level,” says nutrition expert Emma Brown.”For example, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K and E require fats in the diet in order to be absorbed. If your diet does not include some fat, the uptake of these vitamins from food will be limited.”
The key is to have a manageable plan. Explore what it is you really really want and how you will fee, visualize yourself as if you are already there, write down your SPECIFIC lifestyle goals, get support, and move forward. You can do it!
Rotate and Renew. Instead of limiting your produce juicing selections to the same few every time, rotate in new offerings based on what’s fresh and locally available at your farmers market. Incorporate a variety of colors into your juice, as each color represents a different nutrient profile.
I started juicing this week, but I am eating brown rice with vegetables at dinner time, is it ok? Will I get the benefits too? Or should I skip eating solids for a whole week and eat the vegetables and rice after that week.
You’re welcome Victor! Congratulations on going a full 16 days of just juice and losing 16 pounds! I bet you feel absolutely amazing! Thanks for the comment and keep juicing! I’d like to hear some updates on your juice fast so please keep me posted Victor.
Madeline, welcome to JOJ and congrats on starting your juice fast! Since you’ve been very healthy I doubt you’ll experience any sickness related symptoms. Make sure you drink plenty of water right after a juice and throughout the day. You may consider adding an unflavored protein isolate to your juices if you work out consistently to ensure you maintain muscle mass. Just have a juice whenever you feel hungry. Listen to your body and keep me updated on your status. I’m here if you have any questions.
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!
Hi, I was wondering if watermellon is the one fruit that can be eaten? My mom doesn’t want me to just juice, but I’m wanting to loose at least 15-20 lbs. So to apease her and eat something, is watermellon ok? Thanks!!
Juice fasting is a safe way to burn fat but not for the long term. A week long juice fast is going to make the scale move, and if you care about what the scale says, than go for it. Do a week, two weeks, thirty day, or longer juice fast. But I recommend about ten days at the longest. You’ll probably lose about 10-15 pounds in the first week once you get past the headaches, moodiness, and sluggishness that will set in after the first few days on a fruit and vegetable juice diet.
Of all the info I have seen on the net about juicing, I find this article to be most comprehensive and realistic. I want to try juicing for 21 days ( I Have done 10 in the past on juice only) with one meal at lunch. I have so much weight to loose, I am hoping this will jump start my weight loss journey which I can later maintain with a healthy life style. what foods can i consider as lunch options in order to loose faster? I have back and knee pain problems so my work out capacity is currently limited. I am 36 yrs, 1.76 meters tall weighing 115 kg( i was 120 before the last juice fast.
You may not need a juicing machine to make juice. You can use a blender for most whole fruits or vegetables to keep the fiber. Add water if it becomes too thick, Villacorta says. You’ll want to remove seeds and rinds, and some skins.
Personally, when it comes to juicing recipes for weight loss, this is one of my favorites. The combination of lemon, apple, and cucumber comes together to create a hugely refreshing way to burn fat wherever you are. Research at Arizona State University found that the vitamin C in lemon can help you oxidize 30% more fat!
Nicole, welcome to JOJ! It’s truly safe to juice for 30 days. Anything beyond that I do recommend a check up with your doctor to ensure everything is how it should be. But I’m sure you’ll drop 18 pounds well before 30 days. Keep me posted and let me know how it goes Nicole. Cheers!
I prepped juices yesterday for 2 days. I love the V8 juice I made without all the sodium. Tastes fresh. I’m doing this for weight loss and just to be healthier. I”d ultimately like to do a 15 day or 60 day juice cleanse to restart everything. Do you think adding protein powder is an okay thing to do? I worry about lack of protein…
