You will go through detox for the first few days. Some people don’t experience any bad symptoms except cravings. Just stick to it Joanne. You can do anything for a week if you really want to. It’s hard when you have temptations such as having to cook. Tell your husband to fend for himself for the first few days till you get the hang of it. You can do this Joanne and I wish you all the best! I’m here if you have any questions.
Hello everyone, I am really excited to start my new journey of juicing, but I have a few questions I am 5’2 and 148 pounds I would love to lose around 20 to 25 pounds in two weeks, can that be possible ? I will also be working out around an hour per day (:
Ali, I juice on and off every few weeks. I haven’t organized any group fasts in a while but there are plenty of people the forums currently juicing and starting their own fasts. My goal with the forums was to draw people together and give people a means to find other juicers to juice with. Starting the group fasts was a great way to do that and I’m happy that people are starting their own groups with their own fasts. I will be starting a few group juice fasts up before the end of the year though.

Stuart, I had very high blood pressure and was on medication before I started. My blood pressure was normalized within three days of the fast. Don’t stop taking your medicine though. You may want to schedule a check up with your doctor or monitor your pressure daily in intervals so you can get an idea of how your blood pressure is on and off the meds while you are juicing.
Juicing is the process of extracting the juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. A small kitchen appliance known as a juicer is used to extract the juice, and these can range in price from $50-$500. Drinking the juice of fruits and vegetables means consuming their water and much of their vitamin and mineral content; however, the pulp, or fiber, which also has many health benefits, is removed. (Note: Some high-powered juicers do retain most of the pulp in the juice, thus resulting in a thicker juice.)
I have been juicing for 7 days and haven’t lost any weight yet ? I’m following all the basics- 20% fruit / 80% veggies 5 times a day (16oz ea). I’m about 25lbs overweight. I’m not cheating at all. Just wondering how lose some lbs bc I actually love juicing!
I fully recommend the belly slimming detox above. But it is important to remember that, you are much more likely to succeed in losing weight if you have a proper juicing plan. This implies having enough fruit or vegetable in place to plan different juicing recipes for the weeks ahead. Take Charge of your health today and lose that excess weight, look great and feel amazing.
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.
Just realizing that this is in fact yur site. Congrats! I looking for supportive platforms such as this as I embark on my juice cleanse. I’m concluding day 5 and I feel like dynamite. My tummy was growling for the first few days, but seems to be doing better. I also learned that I am not consuming enough juice. I’ve been taking in roughly 40 oz a day. Can you ease share a recipe that yields a lot of juice. I’m finding this to be a bit pricey and I want to be as economical as possible.
Heart Health: Both antioxidant vitamins C and E prevent the damaging effect of free radicals on artery walls. They prevent blood from sticking, clotting, becoming toxic as well as helping to lower triglycerides levels. Great levels of vitamin C can be found in most fruits and vegetables. Good levels of vitamin E can be attained by adding blackberries, kiwi, asparagus and spinach in your juice recipes.
Hi Donnie, my boyfriend and I will start juicing tomorrow morning. We have been really excited to start right after the holidays. I was reading other posts on this site and was surprised to hear how many people are starting on Monday. We choose Saturday because we are off work for the weekend and are prepared for the detox and possible irritable side affects….. We have a 2 yr old son and I have always been pro organic when it comes to his food, but not mine, that is until my boyfriend saw the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix. He started trying your juicing recipes the next day. He is tall, thin and is great shape, so I was surprised to learn of his new-found passion for organic juicing. I myself am short and fat (256 lbs), worst shape of my life. I was athletic until I had our son. I’m so excited we found this! And thank you for all the great recipes and advice. My goal is to be under 200lbs by Memorial Day! I plan on juicing for 30 days!
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.
Chris, no solids! If your energy is low have another juice or do your best to relax and recover. Your body is going through change while you juice so it’s best to let it adjust. Sleep if you can. Having a salad won’t hurt you but it can slow down your weight loss a bit.
This refreshing summer superfood is also good for weight loss. In her book, ’25 Fat Burning Juice Recipes’, Asha Thorat writes that bottle gourd has been prescribed in Ayurveda as a natural way to reduce flab. Bottle gourd juice contains less calories with no fat and also keeps your body cool.
Honestly, the best recipe I’ve used is my variation of the mean green that you can find on the 3, 7, and 14 day plans. It’s very veggie oriented and has a minimal amount of fruit. It’s a great juice to help you with the weight loss. Just remember, as long as you stick to the 80:20 ratio of veggies to fruits, you will lose weight. That is your best bet for quick weight loss. I’m always here if you have questions.
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.
This is less about the juice cleanse and more about what can happen when you go vegan. “Switching to an organic, plant-based diet allows cells to work optimally to re-establish efficient internal messaging and manufacturing processes,” says Merrell. “This allows the mitochondria to create energy without having to fight off a plethora of free radicals and inflammation, and reduces some of the impediments to proper DNA functioning.”
In order to start juicing regularly, you will need to invest in a juicer, which initially will mean setting aside a bit of money. You might feel like this is an expense you don’t want to have, but by making that purchase, you are committing to your health and weight loss. It gives you a reason to stick to the concept of juicing for long enough that you will start to notice the difference in how you feel. It is also an investment in your health and well-being, so not only does juicing help you to lose weight, but it will save you money in medical fees in the future.
