There is one thing that is incorrect about juiding, and that’s the concept of your body not working as hard to digest and avoiding toxins. The fiber from fruits and vegetables is what actually make it easier to digest these foods. Remember our bodies were biologically engineered for thousands of years to process these foods and so they do so with ease. Juicing removed the fiber and the ability to synthesize some of this energy. Toxins come from the air, our skin, and all foods. Again our body has a beautiful system in place to filter these. Juicing doesn’t help or hinder the body and doesn’t provide a detox. Juicing will help you lose weight because items you can juice are 99% fruits and veggies. Near doesn’t taste too good when juiced so people don’t do it. This is why weight loss occurs. You in essence become a raw vegan for as long as you juice. You could easily eat these gods without juicing.
Welcome to JOJ Kassie! You don’t have to be overweight to slim down a bit. You can drink as much water as you like. Water helps speed up the effects and it keeps your system hydrated. Make sure after a juice you do drink a glass of water as it helps to dilute the juice and speeds up the absorption process.

I have been juicing for 10 days now and have not lost one pound. I weigh myself at the same time in the morning after using the restroom and before drinking water or juice. I drink 6 16ounce servings of juice a day. I follow the 80 percent veggie 20 percent fruit method. I drink plenty of water, about the same amount or more than the juice. I am a server, so i am fairly active just because of my job. I am at a complete loss. I just got a colonic today to see if that will help. I just want to lose a little weight and some belly and chest fat. I am very disappointed after pushing through this incredibly difficult fast to not see any results. Any thoughts? I feel like i am going to stop after day 14 because it just doesn’t seem worth the deprivation.
Great article!!! I am looking at having surgury in the next few months. I am also in need of wt loss. Can you please tell me what us the best juice recipee for not only the wt loss but skin healing? I am hoping juicing can also lesson the scaring.
Jessica, I admire your goal of losing 50 pounds. If you stick with it, you’ll lose it much sooner than 8 months. One thing that I can say is just don’t have a cheat meal. Why would you cheat yourself out of your goal Jessica. Go into it 100% and you’ll see results so much sooner than you think. The weight will stay off if you maintain good eating habits and make healthy choices. I’m always here to help Jessica. Keep me posted and know that I’m here for you. I wish you the best! Cheers!
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 doing so, you’re committing to your health and weight loss.
Side effects of a very low calorie diet can include: fatigue/exhaustion, weakness and hunger. More extreme side effects can include nutrient deficiencies like anemia, loss of muscle mass and heart problems.

It’s no secret that you will lose weight by juicing. How much weight you lose is up to you. I’ve lost a total of 30 pounds altogether but have known people who have lost upwards of 100 pounds. If you want to lose weight by juicing I strongly recommend you read two very detailed articles I wrote; Juice Cleanse and How to Juice Fast. These will go into detail on how to get started, how to prepare, and what you will need to do in order to lose weight by juicing.
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.
Longest I’ve juiced days in row was only 3….and lost 6.5 lbs….then took a couple of days break….and did again. Later I juiced during the day and had a sensible dinner. I’m trying to restart and do a 5 day minimum juice…its so difficult!
Is there some reason you cant keep a juice with you? I usually bring more juice than I need to work with me, but instead of keeping it in our communal fridge, I bought a little cooler that I keep in my car. I drink a juice on the way to work, at lunch, and then on the way home from work each day. I have more juice just incase which I have for dinner usually. In between meals if I’m feeling tired I’ll have some black Chai or green tea. If I’m hungry I’ll try and drink more water to tie me over until my next meal. Hope this helps!
Let’s get real for a second here. Our liver does a lot for our bodies. While it might seem that we’ve drawn a lot of attention to this little organ in our article, it’s because it not only helps you to metabolize a range of substances – but also assists in keeping you slim too.
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 appetite.”
I don’t know the details of your personal situation, but juicing really does help a lot of people lose weight when used as a fast or to replace meals/snacks. My advice would be to try replacing a meal or snack with juice (if you haven’t tried that already). I’m assuming your juicing along with your regular food, which is great, but could be the reason why.
