How to juice fast tip 1
First you need to set a goal. Your juice fasting goal may be a set amount of days you wish to juice or it could even be a certain weight that you wish to reach. I always tell people if it’s their first time juicing to at least give it a full week. This will ensure your body gets detoxed and cleansed but will also get your body acquainted to being healthy. Juicing for a full week will also help reduce your appetite, and restore your true sense of taste. I was amazed at how differently food tasted when I went back eating whole foods again.

Setting up your juice recipes and shopping lists plays a big role in your convenience. Let’s face it, you don’t really want to be heading to the store every day to get those veggies. In planning how to juice fast, it’s important to always have fresh fruits and vegetables on hand. You will be surprised at how much you can go through in a day. In a day I typically go through 4 apples, 1-2 lemons, a half bag of spinach, 4-8 stalks of celery, 4 cucumbers, and much more depending on the recipes I use. If your clueless where to start, I have 3 day plans, 7 day plans, and 14 day plans already laid out along with their shopping lists for you to get started.

Setting up a schedule is also very important when figuring out how to juice fast. You typically want to drink at least 4 drinks (16oz-20oz) per day. My rule of thumb for “how to juice fast” is if you feel hungry, drink a juice! Don’t starve yourself of nutrients. If your goal is to lose weight, don’t think you will lose weight faster by drinking less juice. In actuality if your body isn’t getting the nutrients it needs when you drink less and it will go into lock down mode and hold on to the weight it has. It’s very important to stick to the 4 servings or more when planning how to juice fast.

When juicing make sure you drink a lot of water throughout the day. I drink 12-16oz of water immediately after I drink a juice and drink plenty of water in between. One of the main purposes of juicing is to cleanse your digestive system. In order to cleanse your digestive system you need to keep hydrated.
How to juice fast tip 5
A lot of people who want to know “how to juice fast” typically ask me about juicers and about blenders. You can’t use a blender in place of a juicer. It simply defeats the purpose of juicing and turns your drink into a smoothie. The biggest difference is that when using a juicer, you do not get the fibers that you do from a blender. This is important because in order to juice fast, you don’t want to have those fibers. Juicing eliminates the need for your digestive system to work at digesting those fibers, therefore giving you back all the energy it would normally consume in the digestive process.

When you finally make the investment to get a juicer there are a few things you must know. Make sure your juicer is at least 700 watts. This will ensure you have the power to juice the fruits and veggies without any issues. It’s important to make sure your juicer is simple to assemble, disassemble, and clean. Nobody wants to spend a half hour or more making a juice and cleaning up. So make sure your juicer is easy to clean.

When I talk to people about how to juice fast, I find that they spend so much time prepping and cleaning. This always comes as a shock to me since it takes me 10 minutes to prep, juice, drink, and clean my juicer. I took some time to organize my fridge when I started. Another time saver was pre prepping my meals. I suggest getting gallon size freezer bags and prepping your meals ahead of time. That way all you have to do is grab the bag and everything in it is ready to go down the juicer.
How to juice fast tip 8
When juicing, I make it a rule to stick with 20% fruits and 80% veggies. If your goal is to lose weight you should stick to that rule. Fruits contain a lot of sugar so it’s best to keep those for your morning drinks. I juice a lot of spinach for the protein and because spinach helps you lose water weight very fast.
