2. Your blood sugar levels go up a bit higher than they normally do. That’s in part because of the extra sugar, and also because you’re not eating other macronutrients such as fiber and protein that help slow your digestion down and moderate your blood-sugar levels.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi! I’m thinking about starting juicing. 3 years ago I got really sick and was put on a crazy amount of steroids. I put on 90 lbs in 3 months. I really need to lose the weight for health issues. I’m worried about juicing because I don’t like fruits and veggies and I am worried I won’t like the flavor. Any suggestions to get started for people with picky taste? Thanks!
First you need to decide what your goal for juicing is. That will help you determine how long you need to juice, as well as plan your menu and budget. It is not advisable to go for a juice fast if you are new to detoxing. Cleansing and detoxifying your body is a necessary step in regaining your health and a normal weight. A great documentary to consider watching is Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. Start with small steps such as cleaning up your diet, kicking some bad habits, budgeting in more time and money for fresh, organic vegetables. You can add juicing to these efforts to boost the effect and the results, which will boost your willpower.
Years ago I did Weight Watchers and it taught me that my portions were WAY too much! So if I had continued eating the way I was, and added juicing, I probably would have gained weight. So while juicing doesn’t have fat, it does have calories and any time we exceed calories in over calories out we will gain.
It all comes down to willpower. It’s willpower alone and keeping your belly full if you can with some kind of satisfying juice. You also have to whip your mind into shape, telling yourself, “this isn’t forever. I can eat those foods again. When I am done, I plan on eating ________.” Stay away from food as you can. With kids, cook what you know you won’t cave with. Like I can’t be around pizza or pasta. So I avoid it. It’s not easy, but you get better with time. First 3 days, so hard for me. I also use these days to pray for people, committing each day to a certain person. It makes things so much easier if you use a spiritual commitment first, but that’s just my take. Been doing it successfully for 5 years now. You can do it. Blessings!

Chad, you’re still going through detox. That’s a very common symptom of detox and it will pass soon. Detox usually lasts between 3-5 days. As far as weight, the more you start with, the more you can expect to lose. At your weight of 170 I’m going to say you will lose weight but probably not so much as to make you look super skinny or anything bad. Just keep on eye on your weight and set your self a limit that you want to lose, or a limit that you don’t want to pass and then start incorporating solids back into your diet. Let me know how things progress for you Chad. I’m here if you have any questions.
“Diets like juice cleanses can cause insulin levels to peak and then plummet,” says dentist Dr. Sameer Patel. “Over time, this alters the structure of collagen in the body and therefore affects your gums and the collagen fibers that hold your teeth in place. Not only that, the juice from fruit and vegetables, especially fruit, tend to have a high acid content, which severely damages the enamel of your teeth in a similar way to fizzy drinks [and soda]. Ultimately this can lead to teeth sensitivity as the protective layer of enamel is worn down and eroded by the juice.”
Personally, when it comes to juicing recipes for weight loss, this is one of my favorites. The combination of lemon, apple, and cucumber comes together to create a hugely refreshing way to burn fat wherever you are. Research at Arizona State University found that the vitamin C in lemon can help you oxidize 30% more fat!

I love your website extremely informative. I live a healthy and fit lifestyle. My husband is a professional bodybuilder and I competed once before. I always encounter some sort of obstacle when close to my fitness goal so decided to give juicing a try. I love fruits and veggies however I have a concern is there any possibility of becoming sick when I commence to juice? It is officially my first day and I already had a juice at noon, aiming for my next one every 3 hrs. I felt a little strange earlier lightheaded and weird for a brief moment.
