It all comes down to willpower. It’s willpower alone and keeping your belly full if you can with some kind of satisfying juice. You also have to whip your mind into shape, telling yourself, “this isn’t forever. I can eat those foods again. When I am done, I plan on eating ________.” Stay away from food as you can. With kids, cook what you know you won’t cave with. Like I can’t be around pizza or pasta. So I avoid it. It’s not easy, but you get better with time. First 3 days, so hard for me. I also use these days to pray for people, committing each day to a certain person. It makes things so much easier if you use a spiritual commitment first, but that’s just my take. Been doing it successfully for 5 years now. You can do it. Blessings!
Generally speaking, vegetables are much better for you than fruit. Not to say that fruit is bad, but it does contain natural fructose which is a form of sugar (through a million times healthier than the high fructose corn syrup you’ll find in many soda drinks these days).
Most diets are based on the quantity factor–fewer calories, less fat, less carbs…but, what they completely ignore is the quality factor. The reason so many people crave various foods is that they lack quality food that offers enough vital nutrients to keep them healthy. It’s a known fact that our fruits and vegetables have considerably fewer nutrients than forty years ago. No wonder people are more hungry. This is why we eat a meal and still want something more to eat shortly after. The fact is—your body is lacking some very vital nutrients, especially when you are on a diet. This program is based on quality. That’s where juicing and/or green smoothies make a difference. They offer a concentration of nutrients along with knowing how to choose nutrient dense foods.
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!!
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
Hi, love your website! I am ready to start with my joking, I would like to lose weight primarily and I really need to gain energy and good sleeping routine. So, hopefully I will get there… Anyway, my burning question is if is good for me to supplementary drink spirulina powder while juicing fasting. I think I might get anemic pretty quickly (maybe I am already being). Will I still gets all the benefits from juicing and lose weight while adding spirulina?
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!
My very first day of my 10 day juicing journey! I must say it was not as bad as I thought it would be. I felt a little light headed but I still could do my 3km run and my normal exercises at the I’m looking forward to day 2!

One of the best benefits of juicing fresh fruit and vegetables is that drinking them (as opposed to eating them) makes them really easy for your body to digest. If you are to juice say a couple of tomatoes, celery, cucumber, spinach, and carrot, you will make a delicious and easy to drink fresh vegetable cocktail that will provide a huge amount of nutritional benefits to your body. If you were to actually consume those same vegetables raw, from a plate, in one sitting, you would find the process to be quite difficult. It would take a lot of effort to eat and digest the same quantity of food. But by juicing those vegetables, you get to drink in one glass a dense quantity of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients really easily.
Juicing is one of the fastest as well as tastiest means to obtain lots of healthy and balanced vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants as well as enzymes that our modern-day weight loss plan does not provide.
I noticed one of the juices for the juicing cleanse has tomatoes in it, which I love, but have truly found trigger inflammation badly for me. Is it ok to substitute this whole recipe with one of the others? Also I’m supposed to avoid citrus fruits until I’m in remission. Will it alter the results if I leave out the orange, lemon or lime?
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.
While exercise and diet are essential to earning the figure you’ve always wanted, it’s hard to show off that smooth, toned waist-line if you’re carrying too much excess water! That’s why, when you’re searching for the best juice diet to lose weight, it’s often a good idea to include recipes that use “diuretics”.

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.
A couple decades ago, juicing was something that only overzealously health-conscious people did. You just knew someone was into healthy living if he or she owned a juicer or drank fresh juice regularly. Today, it’s much more popular. People are juicing to lose weight, to cleanse and to consume more nutrients. Juicers are popular sold not only via infomercials but can easily be found in department stores. Juice bars have popped up not just in hip California neighborhoods but even in the Midwest.
Hi! I really want to start juicing but I have an anniversary dinner coming up in a week in a half. If I started juicing and the had that one cheat meal would it ruin my results? Thanks for any replies!
I supply you with variations of each exercise. That way you can pick and choose what you want to do. Most exercises even come with a recommended stretch to do before and after so you don’t pull anything. Safety first!
Be aware to not push yourself too hard with exercise when following a lower calorie diet. Physical activity requires a significant amount of energy to perform. When you’re subsisting solely off juice or a low-calorie liquid diet, you may not be consuming enough calories to fuel a workout.
The most successful weight-loss strategies are sustainable, meaning you can incorporate them into your lifestyle long-term. Replacing all or most solid food with juice may be fine during the weight-loss process, but you’re likely to start caving in to any cravings you may develop — including the craving to chew — as time goes on. While cutting calories through diet alone is more effective than maintaining a diet of excess calories and burning them off through exercise, a combination of calorie reduction and physical activity is the best way to lose weight and keep it off. Juicing can be a healthy component of a nutritionally complete reduced-calorie diet. Ensure that you consume enough protein and fat, along with the carbohydrates and micronutrients from juice, to ensure your bodily functions work properly.
This step is completely optional, as some people don’t want to do a juice cleanse. However, for those that do, I give you plenty of reading on how to do a proper juice cleanse, along with how to properly end a juice cleanse.

Nic, it’s most likely stuff that’s been stored in your intestines from previous meals, water weight, and fat. Don’t eat any solids, just stick to your juices. If you have to chew something then sugar free gum will be your friend. Keep me posted on your fast. I’m always here if you have any questions.
First, it’s important to remember that no single food causes obesity, and the inclusion or exclusion of any single food or food group will not cause weight loss. Weight loss comes down to consuming fewer calories than you burn on a regular basis. Juicing can either help or hinder this depending on how much you’re consuming (and what else you’re eating).
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!
