I dont use carrots for all the drinks, but i do use 1-2 apples for most drinks. The strawberries (about 20 small ones) for bfast is the highest sugar intake. I’m not exercising – just normal physical activity with my 3yr old
It’s great to start off your day with a glass of amla juice. It helps in keeping your digestive system on track throughout the day and accelerates your metabolism. A faster metabolism helps in burning fat quickly. For better weight management, it is often suggested to drink amla juice on an empty stomach. Add a drop of honey as a form of natural sugar that will keep you active and energetic through the day.
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.
You can further increase the uptake of nutrients by adding a small amount of healthy fat when having your juice. This can be done a number of ways, such as by sprinkling some freshly ground flax or pumpkin seed over the juice, adding a bit of coconut, having a slice of avocado or enjoying peanut butter on a celery stalk.
The consumption of lycopene, contained most plentifully in watermelon at its peak ripeness, has been demonstrated to increase bone health. The amino acid citrulline in watermelon converts to another amino acid – arginine – in our kidneys and other organs, and in preliminary laboratory studies has been shown to assist the cardiovascular system, and possibly help lower body fat.
First off..love this blog! It’s so informative! I was just diagnosed with PCOS and started medication that has caused me to break out terribly and just leaves me feeling bleh. I want to try juicing to cleanse and of course lose weight (what woman doesn’t want that)I don’t have a juicer and don’t want to break the bank (hello..college student) Is there a way to use a blender or even a magic bullet instead of buying a really expensive juicer and still get good cleansing/weight loss results?
I guide you through three different, but, very simple workout plans depending on what kind of equipment you are able to access (if any!). There’s a workout plan for every person, even if you only have a floor.

I am severely overweight and tried dieting and exercising for a month now and only lost 16lbs… I wanted to try juicing but I’m currently reviewing for a local board exam. Would you recommend this lifestyle change if I need to study almost 24/7 for the boards? Thank you.
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).
One of the most common reasons the average person’s juicer sits unused for months or years at a time is because the thought of having to prepare and clean up after your juicing experience is enough to keep your juicer gathering dust. We have prepared some helpful tips…
The second is masticating juicers which are much more effective when juicing highly nutritious greens like spinach, kale, etc. It also produces the highest quality and quantity of juices than centrifugal juicers.
Hi I just started the 7 day juice fast. So far I have lost 4kg. I want to continue 5 days and stop as it will be my daughters birthday. Would that be ok? And then just start back up after. And can I just stick to the recipes on the 7 day juice. Or where can I find more recipes? Sorry for all the questions and thanx in advance
I went out last night to get all the ingredients to make this. It is so delicious and refreshing! I don’t have a juicer, so I blended it all instead. I considered straining it, but I got impatient and drank it as-is, hee-hee. It is a beautiful colour, and everything just goes together perfectly. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
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 am on the end of day 3 of a 30 day juice fast. Been following your recipes and tried one of my own, it isn’t going too badly. I didn’t eat at all Day 1 (I drive all day at my job, so bathroom trips are prized occurrences). Question 1: Since I didn’t eat day one, is my body still on detox day 3? Question 2: I am 5’10”, 170lbs. Can I expect to lose about 20lbs? How much do you think I will gain back after if I continue doing paleo or raw afterwards? Question 3: Are Granny Smith apples better nutritionally? I have read they are easier on the juicer, but they are also more expensive! This blog is really helping me, I appreciate this site so much!
“I lost 18 pounds on the program. My cholesterol levels dropped into normal range so I didn’t have to go on meds. My energy level has also improved. I still have almost 20 pounds to lose, but just viewing the photos provided additional motivation for me. —Marianne
Daniel, if you lose weight the right way, your body will adapt and your skin will adjust. Give yourself a good 14 day fast and then re-evaluate things and go from there. As far as workouts go, it’s best to let your body rest and recover during the first 3-5 days as you’ll be going through detox. Just rest, let your body heal, and then feel free to get back at your workouts. Just listen to your body and don’t push yourself too hard Daniel. Keep me posted and let me know how things work out for you. I’m always here if you have questions. Cheers!
When you’re trying to lose weight, all calories count, whether you’re eating them or drinking them. To keep a limit on the calories in your fresh juice, use more vegetables than fruit. For example, 1 cup of spinach has only 7 calories, while a large apple has 116 calories. Other low-calorie vegetables that make tasty juices include carrots, cucumbers, kale and tomatoes. For a touch of sweetness with fewer calories, add a lemon or lime to your vegetable juice. Ginger also adds flavor without many calories.
I have been hearing a lot about juicing, and the great things is does when it comes to weight loss. I am very interested in starting the juicing process, but am not sure how much vegetables to use or which ones are best. Can you please give me a few examples of which ones to use, and the amounts? Thank you !
Though this recipe once again calls for the liver-cleansing powers of beetroot, you’ve probably noticed that its focus is those delicious orange vegetables – carrots. This recipe is perfect for those moments when you’re feeling sluggish, bloated, and a little squishier around the mid-section.
Suki, you mean like doing a juice fast? Yes, you could, although it might get a little boring having the same juice over and over again! You might want to check out my Juice Feasting 101 eBook for more ideas!
I used to think that protein powders are nasty tasting but on the contrary, there are brands that make great tasting protein powders that when combined with the right vegetables will give you a filling and nutrition rich drink that will also supply the body with the protein that your muscles feed on.
Tiffany, you can have your juice as early as you like and then workout within the hour. Another thing you can do is have 8 ounces of water and lemon, and then 8-12 ounces of juice. I usually have my water and lemon right when I wake up. After that I go about my morning, take a shower, get dressed, etc. and then have my morning juice.
Hi there, i know it’s recommended to drink 4-6 juices a day, but i was wondering how you recommend to space them out? With 3 juices it’s easy to say breakfast, lunch and dinner, but when would be a good time for the other juices? I realize that it is up to my body’s signals to tell when i need juice, but recognizing those signals is a really tough thing for me, and I’m sure it gets easier with time; but for now would you be able to give me a rough estimate of a good plan for drinking juices?
I have to disagree here Antony, our bodies were not biologically engineered for thousands of years to eat processed foods, fast foods, and all the other garbage we as a human race eat. Just look at all the food related illness out there and how many people suffer from diabetes or obesity. Our bodies weren’t meant to eat in the capacity and rate that we feed it today.

While there are many reasons why one should not turn to an exclusively juicing diet, there is no need to forgo juice if you enjoy its refreshing taste and endless flavor combinations. You just need to juice with a little common sense and know-how by practicing these tips.
I. Schapiro warns that juice cleansers may experience confusion because limiting important nutrients like protein can lead to decreased brain function and disruptions in neurotransmitters, which rely on protein to do their job. While you won’t be as sharp because your noggin’ isn’t getting what it needs, there are also foods to know about that suck it dry, like these Foods That Drain Your Brainpower.
Start your day out strong and have some lemon and warm water first thing when you wake up. It will help set the pace throughout the day. Also, don’t think that less is better and less will make you lose weight fast. Make sure you are having between 4-6 juices per day with each being about 16-20 ounces. Do that, drink plenty of water, get some good sleep and the detox part will be through really fast. After the first 3-5 days you’ll get a rush of energy and you’ll start feeling fantastic! Just keep at it, stay focused on your goals, and you’ll do just fine. I’ll be here if you have any questions. Keep me posted Liz!
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.
