Chantelle, people have the best success when they stick with the fast as opposed to taking a day or two and eating solids and then going back on the fast. You can do it either way though but just be true to yourself and don’t overeat during that day. If you would like to try more recipes go here: http://www.justonjuice.com/juicing-recipes/ Cheers!
The juices you consume for weight loss aren’t the jugs of orange juice or fruit punch you pick up in the grocery store. Juicing for weight loss has you using a home juicer to press pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables and create concoctions rich in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Alternatively, you may purchase cold-pressed juices at a premium price to replace meals. These natural juices contain no added sugar, preservatives, unwanted fats or excess sodium. When made mostly with green vegetables, such as kale, celery and cucumber, they are also low in calories.
The “Beets and Treats” detox is rich in beet juice, which helps to clear bile ailments and cleanse away toxicity throughout the blood and liver. The healthier your liver is, the more it can metabolize fat for quick, simple weight loss.
Even though generally, most fruits and vegetables are great for weight loss, it is only those fruits which are low in calories and high in fiber that is going to help kick-start your weight loss plan.
Prepare sample juices. Before purchasing a large quantity of fruits and veggies, try making a few small servings of different blends of juices. will prevent you from wasting items you may not enjoy as a juice.
Remember that the best weight-loss plan helps you achieve balance and moderation with a wide variety of foods that you enjoy and can stick with eating for the long term. Juicing may result in some weight loss, but it’s a crash diet at best.
Pomegranate juice is great for your skin and to get back your natural glow, but it may also help in weight loss. According to Delhi-based Weight Management Expert, Dr. Gargi Sharma, “Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, polyphenols and conjugated linolenic acid – all of which help you burn fat and boost your metabolism. Pomegranate juice also helps in suppressing your appetite.”
First thing’s first: Juice cleansing is a “detox” diet that can last from a few days to several weeks in which a person consumes only fruit and vegetable juices to obtain nutrition while otherwise abstaining from eating food. Many people swear by cleanses and report an improvement to their health, mood, and appearance. The scientific community, however, is less than enthusiastic about juice cleanses—many scientists, dietitians, and doctors regard detox diets as less effective than fasting with water, and, therefore, a waste of money. That said, if you’re going to do one anyway, we recommend consulting with your doctor—or at the very least going along with an “official” juice cleanse program. Simply drinking any ol’ juice from anywhere around town is not a good idea.
Buying frozen fruits or vegetables allows you to stock up on items that might be out of season. In addition, you can use a small portion of frozen items in one sitting without worry of them going bad.
P.S. I don’t do a lot of different juices I keep it simple. I use spinach and bagged power greens, celery, cucumber, ginger, carrots and lemon. The one thing I do is seep rat the first 5 ingredients and down those and then drink the carrot and lemon slowly. I just don’t like the mix I don’t like the greens period but they are so good for me I drink them the carrot and lemon is amazing soooo good. I don’t use apples to much but I do on occasion.
Ginger adds a touch of spiciness to this drink, if you don’t like this flavor disregard it but it does a great job masking the strong flavor of spinach (trust me you’ll like this with ginger than without).
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.
As far as your thyroid production I don’t think they would have any adverse affects but it would be best to follow up with your doctor in case he/she may want to test you and change your dosage. I always recommend that people keep up to date with their doctors and let them know they are juicing when on a prescription medication. You have been juicing for 5 days and feel no bad effects from it, and you’re feeling fine and energetic so just keep doing what your doing and make an appointment with your doc. Keep me posted Bonnie, I’ll be here if you have any questions.
The truth about juicing, is that it’s more than just a wonderful way to introduce a host of fat-burning vitamins and nutrients into your system. The right juicing for weight-loss plan also gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy high doses of fruits and vegetables you might not typically eat.
Many people use different forms of weight loss juicing every day. There have been many successful cases. I get emails all the time from people just like you that have replaced a meal a day with juicing or who have juice fasted. Sometimes, results are unbelieveable, especially for those juice fasting or on a juice diet plan.
Kendra, what’s more important, losing that weight you’ve put on or flavor that you taste for a minute while consuming a juice? The flavor is something you can adapt, change, and get used to. You will do fine if you focus on your health Kendra. You’ll have to experiment with a few juices and see which ones work best for you. Keep me posted. I’m always here if you have questions.
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??
Do these have to be juiced? Can you get the same benefits if these were blended? Was wondering because I’m on a weight loss program and have lost 34lbs and this sounds like something I really want to try. I just can’t afford to get a juicer right now.
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!
Convenience – Modern busy lifestyles cause us to make many poor diet decisions because of the convenience of fast food. Juicing takes just a few minutes and gives you fresh, delicious, healthy juice that satisfies you. This means you eat less junk food.
Hello!! I weight 227 I am 5’2 and I need to lose 60lbs or more. I was going to start juicing in the morning and having Greek yogurt for lunch with another juice and for dinner a salad with some chicken and no fat dressing. Will that help me lose weight? Also I will be walking/jogging 30mins a day. Please give me any advice u have!!! I need help.
Sarah, thanks for you comment and congrats on ordering your juicer and deciding to start a juice fast! You can have between 4-6 juices per day with each being around 16-20 ounces. I find it best to enjoy a juice whenever you feel hungry. Let your body tell you when to have a juice and it will do amazing things for you! I’ll be here if you have any questions Sarah.
This gives you reason to stick to juicing for long enough to start noticing the difference in how you feel. It is also an investment in your health and well-being; it can even save some medical expenses in the future.
So How can I lose weight by juicing? Juicing will load your system with tons of nutrients that you normally don’t get from eating a regular meal. Imagine trying to eat two apples, a large cucumber, six big kale leaves, four stalks of celery, half of a lime, and a large carrot. You would feel stuffed, bloated, and maybe even sick. Your stomach would be full and your digestive system would have to work very hard and use a lot of energy to digest all that. Now imagine putting all that through your juicer and drinking a tasty 16oz of nutrition loaded healthy juice. Seems much easier right? But wait, there’s more to it.
