Lose Weight By Juicing
Lose weight juicing? Yes! You most certainly can and will lose weight by juicing. The weight you lose will depend on how long you juice and what you juice. Juicing is a very effective, nutritional way to lose get rid of those nasty toxins while shedding away those extra pounds. Most people lose a lot of weight within the first two weeks. I myself lost 20 pounds within the first two weeks and dropped two pant sizes!
Can you lose weight by juicing for a few days? If you juice for a day or two you probably wont lose a whole lot of weight. Some people juice as long as 60 days or more. Joe Cross juiced for 60 days and lost a massive amount of weight and cured a chronic illness. You can see his documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix or Hulu. Juicing for an extended amount of time like that takes some will power but you don’t have to shoot for 60 days if losing weight is your goal. If you are truly juicing and not cheating, you will notice some good results within 14 days. Most people lose anywhere from 10 pounds to 20 pounds or more within the first fourteen days.
But how can you lose weight by juicing? You will lose more weight by juicing raw vegetables instead of fruits. Fruits are great and give your juice a good taste but you should keep your more fruitier juices for the morning. Fruit has a lot of sugar which can slow down your weight loss. I like to make a good fruity drink in the morning but for my other meals I tend to just use an apple and a lemon to hide other strong vegetable flavors such as kale or spinach. It’s best to keep your juicing diet to about 80% vegetables and 20% fruits.
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.
Not only do you get loads of nutrition, your digestive system doesn’t have to work nearly as hard since the nutrition from the juice is absorbed into your system. So where does all that energy go that your digestive system used to digest hard meats, strong dairy products, and heavy bread? It goes back to you. Since I’ve been juicing I feel more awake, active, happy, and healthy. I’ve been able to do activities that I thought I’d never do again.
Everyone can lose weight by juicing! Since your body is taking in all the nutrients it needs to sustain itself, you start to force those nasty toxins out of your body. Since many of those toxins are stored in fat, you shed weight at a very fast pace.
But will I gain it all back once I stop juicing? If you go straight back to your old eating habits you probably will gain some weight back. Most juicers I have talked to have not gained that weight back. When you juice for an extended period of time your appetite will diminish and you will not be able to eat as much as you used to. Once you decide to stop juicing and go back to solids there are ways to do it correctly. The majority of your diet should contain at least 80% raw vegetables and fruit. You will still need to watch what you eat and not gorge yourself on heavy foods. Losing weight is easy if you stick to juicing for a few weeks.
