A lot of people makes mistakes when juicing and don’t truly understand the necessary nutrition and calorie restrictions that need to be considered. I found the ‘juicing for weight loss’ section on this page quite helpful.
Congratulations Aradhana! It’s amazing what some healthy juice will do for not only your body, but your mind too! Make sure to keep juicing as part of your diet when you go back to eating solids. Thanks for the post, and congratulations again Aradhana! Cheers!
A suggested read (and affordable, as it is out of print) is How to Keep Slim, Healthy and Young with Juice Fasting by Paavo Airola. It’s a little baby book chock full of how to juice fast yourself with proven case studies, if you feel you’d like to read more about it.
If you have tried fad diets that didn’t work, then juicing could be for you. Remember though, you are much more likely to succeed in losing weight if you have a proper juicing plan. This means having enough recipes for the week ahead.
Chocolate is a delicious way to include flavonoids and other antioxidants in your diet. Using raw organic cocoa powder is one of the best options, since it contains no added sugar. Nutrient and fiber-rich spinach is mild enough that its flavor doesn’t compete with the chocolate. This juice also includes blackberries, which provide fiber, anthocyanins, vitamin C, and a little sweetness, as well as avocado for creaminess, healthy fats, and antioxidant vitamin E.
For losing weight and helping your body control oxidative free radicals and toxins, you’ll want juices that are packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a little bit of healthy fat. To achieve this, the ingredients center on dark leafy greens, mild colorful vegetables like pumpkin and beet, a little fruit, and spices. Fruit juices are super tasty, but vegetable juices with less sugar are better for weight loss and detoxing. We include a mix of low-sugar vegetables and nutrition-packed fruits so you get the best of both.
Whole foods usually contain more vitamins and minerals. This is most often due to the fact that many of these nutrients are in (or very near) the skin of fruits and vegetables, which gets discarded as pulp when fruits and vegetables are juiced.

This combination of beet greens, beet root, and ginger will help to cleanse and detoxify your liver. What’s more, the carrots will cleanse the liver and help to aid in faster, more efficient digestion.
Be sure your diet includes: cruciferous vegetables, green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, sulfur rich foods, and fiber. Eliminate sugar and all its relatives (including all artificial sweeteners), bad fats such as fried foods, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, and gluten. There are some links below that lead to some nice recipes, or look online.

The Five-a-Day Challenge. Juicing can help you meet your 5-servings-a-day minimum of fruits and vegetables; that means no more than 1 cup of juice daily, which counts as 2 produce servings. Just make sure you are incorporating enough whole fruits and veggies, whole grains, legumes and lentils to meet your 25 grams of fiber as well. You may even surprise yourself by getting more than 5 servings!
So far, it’s been an exceptionally warm winter for many people—but there’s no telling when our old friend the polar vortex might decide to show up. Winter isn’t a great time to start a juice cleanse because many people do look to hot foods and beverages to help maintain body temperatures during the colder months. Picture it: When it’s 20 degrees outside, a hot tea for weight loss may be a better choice than a cold pressed juice.
Because some items can not be put into a juicer.. Things like berries, avocado, and some fruits like peaches and bananas can not be put into a juice extractor.. To add those to your juice, you would have to extract your extractable produce, add the juice to a blender and then add anything like banana, strawberries or avocado.. That is why he uses both a blender and an extractor.
Hey Donnie, Love this sight. Thanks. My goal is 10 pounds and I need your help. I am 46 years old and love to work out but at this point I am no longer able to I had a bad Hip Replacement and can no longer continue physical exercise. NONE I am on Penicillin for the rest of life. I love juicing every morning the norm, spinach ,kale ,ginger,carrots,almonds,celery.I cant flush all the medication out of my body but need to get this weight I gained during this procedure. I was not able to walk or bare any weight for 9 weeks. It is now 6 months. I need your advice, I have got to get this weight off.
“Alli promotes weight loss by decreasing absorption of fat by the intestines, which reduces the number of calories you absorb.” This might work in moderation with an unhealthy diet if you maintain bad eating habits. If you take this while on a juice fast it’s completely pointless as you’re not digesting anything nor are you eating anywhere near the amount of fats to make it worthwhile.
As a long-term extremely restrictive diet, a 30-day juice diet may lead to nutritional deficiencies. It can also decrease energy levels and lead to dizziness or fainting. Plus, when you limit your calorie intake, your metabolic rate slows down to conserve energy, making it harder for you to lose weight. Making your own fruit and vegetable juice can up your intake of vitamins and minerals, but instead of making it the only thing you consume, you may be better off adding these healthy juices to your healthy, balanced diet.
Hi, I have one question. I am battling Psoriatic Arthritis, in fact, it is at the worst I’ve ever endured. I have been researching because most of the medicines I’ve been prescribed only lower my immune system, which is why I think I’m in the fix I’m in now. I found a wonderful chiropractor who says all his patients have been healed of Psoriasis simply by following a juicing protocol and eliminating nightshades and a few other foods that trigger Psoriasis.
Are you also following a healthy diet? You cannot just be Juicing. Your body needs real foods to kick start your metabolism. If you do not eat enough your body will go into defensive mode and slow your metabolism while storing extra fat because it thinks lean days are ahead.
I took a few deep breaths, determined what and how much could I do, what bothered me the most. I decided I had to pick a time of day to juice, stick to it, organize that refrigerator, make this into an adventure and make this journey my own.
MissMandy, welcome to JOJ and congrats on losing 73 pounds through exercise and healthy dieting! I’m sure you will lose that last 25lbs easily on the juice fast. It’s best to let your body rest and recover during the first 3-5 days as you’ll be going through detox. But since you’ve been eating clean you can probably maintain your exercises. Just listen to your body and don’t over exert yourself. Take it easy the first few days so you can adjust to the juice. I wish you all the best MissMandy! Keep me posted on your success! I’m always here if you have questions!
When choosing a type of pomegranate juice, check the label to make sure that there is no added sugar. Added sugar increases the number of calories in juice, which can make it less helpful for weight loss. Sugar also reduces the potential heart and cholesterol benefits from pomegranate juice, so look for 100-percent juice.

Joanne, you’re not starved. Starvation is a lack of nutrition. Hunger is how your body tells you that it needs nutrients. Cravings are when your mind is telling you to eat out of habit, boredom, or for the taste and enjoyment of it. You’re experiencing cravings and not hunger as you get plenty of nutrition while on the juice. If you’re hungry then just have more juice. It’s simple and will work if you stick to it and can get over the cravings.
I just started the 14 day juice fast yesterday. I guess my timing was bad because the 4th of July is tomorrow! I was wondering if it would be OK to continue juicing during the holiday and just eat one salad for tomorrow? After that, I will return juicing for the remainder of the cleanse.
JuiceRecipes.com chose me to be their sole juicing expert because of my history. I was diagnosed with, lupus, an incurable disease, and cancer in 1999. Fortunately, I discovered juicing in 1999 because I was dropped from my health insurance after those diagnoses. Left with very few options, I put all of my hopes into juicing and herbs.

Gage, congrats on day 4 of your juice fast. I’m glad you’re feeling great! You can’t eat any solids while on the fast. If you’re just working out and exercising the protein in the juice will be enough. If you’re weight lifting and trying to build muscle then you may consider a protein supplement such as an unflavored protein isolate to add to your juices. You should work on hitting your weight goal first and then after a week or two start your exercise routines. This way your body can adjust and finish out the detox phase. During the first week it’s best to get as much rest as possible and not work your body too much. Let me know if you have any questions.
Plenty of water is locked up in your muscles with glycogen. “When you eat a low-calorie diet, you use up those glycogen stores, and you lose the water weight with it,” says lalifechef.com’s Seth Santoro. The excitement is temporary, though; Santoro adds that you’ll gain that water weight right back when you return to your normal diet.

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.”
Combine all three and you’ll get a very bitter drink that is best taken before every meal – this will suppress your appetite and help you eat less. The ginger is optional if you want some spiciness to contrast the bitter flavor.
