You could exercise day and night, feeding your muscles with nothing but water and lemon juice, but that’s only going to take you so far. Why not try a scientifically-proven, and delicious alternative instead?
Hey Donnie! I am looking forward to starting the juicing fast, but before I do I have a question for you. I am a young mother and I am basically just looking to lose at most 15 pounds. Mainly the “baby weight” so to speak. my question is do you have to be over weight for this to be an effective way to lose weight? I ask because even though I am not happy with the way my body looks, I’m not overweight. Also while on the juice fast are you aloud to drink water throughout the day along with the juice? Or strictly just the juice to be effective?
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.

This will allow you to keep track of the effects that your positive lifestyle changes are having on you (i.e. losing 30lbs in a month like me!). I know it’s important to see your progress as well as feel it.
As long as you keep it short and don’t have underlying health problems (such as diabetes), anyway. “[If you’re healthy to begin with,] there’s very little evidence that it does anything bad for you, either,” Buse said. “So if someone feels better when they do a juice cleanse [for a few days,] … as a physician, it’s not something I’d fight with them about. I’m just not sure there’s a great deal of benefits.”
You can however use a blender to make smoothies and you’ll still get the detoxifying and nutritional benefits. You’ll go through detox and lose weight slower but it will still work depending on what your goals are. Just make sure you have a blend when you feel hungry and don’t over eat. Cheers!
I’m on day 5 of juicing fast, I had a really tough day yesterday and nearly caved…! I’ve done them before but my daughter was on hols with grandparents and my son wasn’t born. This time has been very tough preparing and feeding the kids. Does anyone have any advice please?
Hi, I am juicing up till noon. Then after noon I have small portions such as turkey sandwich, oatmeal, yogurt. If my juicing consists mostly of fruits is that too much sugar? Does it have to be veggies to lose weight?

This recipe is inspired by the Spanish soup gazpacho. Tomatoes supply the antioxidant lycopene, and the small amount of olive oil ensures that your body can absorb it well. Parsley, cilantro, and garlic provide vitamin C along with other potent anti-inflammatory compounds. Cilantro can also help flush heavy metals from the body.
The Toxin killer is healthy juice with an unusual green; it is full of vitamins, essential nutrients, and antioxidants. It cleanses and detoxes the body of harmful toxins. Thus, it should be a part of your daily routine.
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.
I’ve been doing the juice u had listed on the forum: apple, orange, celery, 1/2 lemon, cucumber, carrot. I have really bad acid in my stomach and chest now… my stomach is burning, should I remove the lemon? I’m not sure how to fix it. But it’s pretty bad. Thanks
Ashley, when you work out, you are ripping and damaging your muscles. They start to rebuild immediately when you give them the nutrients to do so. It’s helpful to add more spinach/kale/romaine to your juices directly after you work out. Have a juice right when you finish to help the process.
I would like to try it, where do I start? I saw that u told a lady in this post to change all of her juices and gave her a link, but it didn’t take me anywhere but the home page of forum. What r the best recipes for losing weight ASAP and getting this thing really going? Also, can I make my juices in the morning and take to work? And, what is the best juicer? I don’t have one and need to get one immediately so I can start this. Right now I have massive brain fog. Thank u(:
4. Research recipes. Be sure you are getting more vegetables than fruits so that you don’t offset your work by increasing insulin levels. This is where you’ll need to add things like avocado, chia or flax seeds, protein powder, banana, nuts. You want to be sure you’re eating a balanced diet. Branch out. This is a great time to get your digestive tract some new material. Consider juicing veggies you wouldn’t to eat. Beats, for example, are a powerhouse of nutrition, with lots nutrients you don’t find from many other sources. They are delicious juiced or in a smoothie.
Hi Donnie! My husband and I are about to embark on a 7-10 day juice fast (or longer). I have done a ton of research but am still a bit uncomfortable about the effect this fast will have on my husband who has type II diabetes.
Hi Dolly, I just stumbled upon your page and I’m so happy that I did. I am currently concluding day 5 of my juice cleanse. I had originally thought that I would just go for 5 days, but I have so much energy and want to continue. So far I’ve lost 10lbs. I’m loving how I feel. I’m interested in the 60 day challenge. Can you please tell me what I need to do? How do I get my email to you?
Always avoid canned or packaged foods and use only fresh fruits, vegetables and dark leafy greens that are packed with full of fiber, naturally water-rich and full of nutrients that boost up the metabolism and prevents weight gain. Consistent rather occasional intake of these juices will give the best result over time.
Abe, I had the same problem and craved food at night. I wasn’t hungry but just craved food. It’s because eating a snack at night was a habit for me. Habits like that aren’t easy to break and it will take some time to get your body adjusted. You may consider taking a night time tea to help you sleep if things persist. Check in the recipe section of the forum. There is a post that has a few juice recipes that you can eat as a soup. Hope you enjoy!
Great for busy people who want a fast juicer that will extract juice from fruits and vegetables in under a minute. The best budget slow juicer in our book. It will perform at par even with more expensive brands like Omega or Kuvings at a third of the cost. If you plan to juice a lot of leafy greens then hands down, this extractor should be your number one choice.
If you feel unhealthy and overweight, and you think this program will magically solve either of those things without any effort on your part, it won’t. This weight loss program is for people who are ready to actively do something about their weight.
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??
Fiber is an essential part of a healthy diet. Eating enough of it is important for optimal digestion because it keeps the beneficial bacteria in your gut healthy and may reduce constipation for some people (21).
Years after beating cancer and lupus, I started struggling with my weight (at age 36, I’m 48 now) or as I like to refer to it, “the magical time where my metabolism decided to slow down”. Don’t you just love that time period (sarcasm noted)?
Tish lost 30 lbs. and her blood pressure medications! “Today I celebrate my 60+ birthday and I feel great in my body, mind and spirit. I am excited to tell you that after losing 30 lbs I’m no longer taking blood pressure medicine. I trusted God for divine healing as I chose a healthy lifestyle. I am happy to be healthy and energetic. Being healthy and fit is the best gift I could give myself. Thank you Cherie for sharing these lessons with the world. God bless you! ” —Tish
One of the best benefits is that drinking them (as opposed to eating them) makes them really easy for your body to digest. If you are to juice, for example, a couple of tomatoes, celery, cucumber, spinach, and a carrot, this easy-to-drink, delicious, fresh vegetable cocktail will provide multiple nutritional benefits to your body.
Doing the math, on average, an ounce of ”mixed juice” contains about 15 calories. If you need 1,400-1,500 calories daily to achieve weekly weight loss, you could drink a whopping 96 ounces of this juice (about 12 cups) each day and still stay in that calorie range, which should result in weight loss. On this sample juicing diet, you would, however, only be getting 9 grams of fiber (36% of your need) and 25 grams of protein (41% of your need) each day, which is far from ideal. This unbalanced nutrient intake would result in immediate muscle mass loss and an increase in hunger and food cravings. Other nutrients such as fat, vitamins and minerals would also be severely lacking. Successful and safe long-term weight loss would not be achievable on such a plan. When followed for a few days, this type of juice fast would probably not harm a healthy adult. However, if followed for several weeks, or if followed by people with certain medical conditions, this type of fast could lead to dangerous complications (more on that below).
Focusing on tasks could become more of a challenge during a cleanse. “Because you’ve decreased the normal amount of calories you usually eat, you will begin to feel tired, sluggish, and you will start to lose muscle mass because your body is taking the protein out of your muscles to give you energy,” says Kaufman. Our point: It’s not just your body that can tire during a cleanse, but your your mind can, too. If you’re still thinking you need to detox, first check out these 25 Best Foods for Instant Detox.
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.
