Hi I did the fast for 7 days and started to include solids in my diet. I’ve started worked out as well. It’s been a week since I’ve completed the fast and I’ve noticed I’ve gained about 4 lbs since then and I’ve been eating vegetables and drinking water. Is this likely to happen? Fast weight gain from just eating fruits and vegetables after a juice fast?

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.
I work 12 hour shifts 7a-7p at least three times a week. What would be the best way for me to do a juicing diet with my crazy hours. I read somewhere else that the juice should be dranked immediately after making it. My juicer is to big to take to work, do you know of any small portable juicers? Thanks in advance.
Ah, the start of a new year! Gym memberships suddenly spike, bathroom scales get dusted off, and friends start discussing which juice cleanse to try. We are 100 percent on board with this uptick in well-intentioned motivation—but we think it’s important you always know what you’re getting into.
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?
http://healthy4lives.com/how-juicing-… Juicing For Weight Loss successfully helps you lose weight. It combines all of the goodness of vegetables and fruit to help your body in plenty of ways. The act of juicing is really a method of extracting the vitamins, minerals and nutrients within food. With the proper mix of ingredients, it becomes among the best complements to an eating plan and exercise routine aimed at slimming down.
Looking to lose 80 pounds. I started my juicing today! I must say Kale is gross! I made the green machine juice from fat sick and nearly dead. I tell you what, it’s got to be modified or I won’t be able to stomach it LOL!
The juicing process eliminates fiber from fruits and vegetables. These sources are also naturally low in protein. Therefore, juice diets may not fill you up and, for that reason, they can be difficult to sustain.
Some juice fasts, especially those that confine you to green vegetable juices, don’t provide enough calories. This may result in weight loss at first, but ultimately can slow down your metabolism because your body senses that it might be starving and it doesn’t want to expend excess energy. You may not have enough energy to exercise to help with calorie burn and muscle development, which actually offers a boost in metabolism. Although fresh juices offer an abundance of antioxidants and phytonutrients, along with multiple vitamins and minerals, you may miss out on other important nutrients, such as vitamin B-12, iron, protein and healthy fats.
Spicy foods have been clinically proven to be exceptionally good at aiding weight loss. This particular juice blend comes with a healthy dose of jalapeno, and ginger root – both sure to heat up your average weight loss session.
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
“In June, 2014, I first began juicing. Within the first month, I drastically reduced my high sugar consumption to almost total elimination. I vigilantly maintained that for one year. June, 2015, a little more sugar crept in. As the months went on, though I kept juicing, sugar got more of a foothold. The holidays were tougher to get thru. By the end of this winter, I had stopped juicing and was back in the sugar bowl. Oddest thing. In the past, sugar had been ‘helpful.’ Calming, rewarding and something I used to manage my energy. For decades, I used sugar for energy and reward. After juicing for about 20 months, going back to sugar wreaked havoc with my system. Before, it had been calming. This time, I got agitated, cranky, hyper, restless and had no peace. Pleasure/reward wasn’t there longer than a few seconds. The good things I’ve been doing since June, 2014 appear to be stronger than the decades of poor habits. Though there’s been tension to get off the path since last June, that one faithful year of juicing and eliminating most sugar/caffeine has given me tremendous strength to overcome decades of a sugar addiction.” Judy D
I didn’t know that you can lose more weight with vegetables instead of fruits, I’ve been using fruits more because I like the taste better (maybe its the sugar). But I’ll give vegie juice a try. Do you think ready made vegie juice is just as good as home made?
Anyways I started again yesterday with 2 weeks as my goal. I went in this time with a much better and lower daily calorie intake and it doesn’t seem as bad so far. One of my biggest challenges is having a busy schedule and making juice 3x a day and cleaning up as well. Is it ok to subsidize fresh home made juice with all natural green juice in a bottle?
Remember Food Safety. Wash your hands before touching the fruits and vegetables. Then, be sure to thoroughly wash the produce. Make sure to properly clean the cutting board, knife and preparation area. Wash your juicing machine carefully after each use with hot soapy water according to the manufacturer’s directions. Just rinsing it out won’t do!
Follow the juicer’s instruction booklet. Most recommend to add delicate items first (like leafy greens), followed by softer items (like a banana or tomato) and add hard foods (like carrots or apples) last.
First thing’s first: Juice cleansing is a “detox” diet that can last from a few days to several weeks in which a person consumes only fruit and vegetable juices to obtain nutrition while otherwise abstaining from eating food. Many people swear by cleanses and report an improvement to their health, mood, and appearance. The scientific community, however, is less than enthusiastic about juice cleanses—many scientists, dietitians, and doctors regard detox diets as less effective than fasting with water, and, therefore, a waste of money. That said, if you’re going to do one anyway, we recommend consulting your doctor—or at the very least going along with an “official” juice cleanse program. Simply drinking any ol’ juice from anywhere around town is not a good idea.
Emma, it’s recommended to have between 4-6 juices per day each consisting of 16-20 ounces. Read through the site and also browse through the comments and forums. You juice when you feel hungry enough to eat. Some people may have only 3 juices while others have as much as 6. It’s all a matter of listening to your body, and learning to listen to your body. Let me know if you have any questions Emma.
I am in the military and was just recently diagnosed with arthritis. I am 30 years old and after taking the steroids I gained about 50lbs. I go to the gym twice a day and do cardio and strength for about two hours at a time. Will I be able to maintain this energy needed on a juice fast?
You should ask your doctor about taking this along with juicing. But I’m willing to bet that you’ll see more results, faster results, and none of the side effects if you juice as opposed to taking phentermine to lose weight. Just ask yourself what’s more natural and more healthy for you not just in the short term but in the long term as well.
