When you’re considering different types of juice fasts, weight loss can be a nice bonus. That is to say, not only will you be feeling great from all the vegetables and fruits you’re drinking each day, but also there’s a good chance you’ll drop some weight during the process.
Why is this, however? You’ll still be consuming a lot of nutrients when drinking juice for fasting; moreover, you should always drink as much juice as you want. So if you feel hungry throughout the day, drink up.
With a belly full of nutritious juice, how is weight loss possible? That’s what you’re going to learn today.
Juice Fast + Weight Loss = A Happier You
Addition By Subtraction
Before we dive into the different types of produce for juice fasts, weight loss expectations, and other tidbits it’s important to reflect on what you won’t be putting into your body during the fast. This could include:
- Fast food
- Sodas loaded with caffeine
- Refined foods
- Pasta-loaded carbs
Obviously this list could go on and on. The point is that not only will you be filling your body full of healthy juice, but also you’ll be giving yourself a break from those products that make you feel sluggish and take a lot of exercise to burn off. You may even regain a notch on your belt simply by dropping items like fast food and soda. Sometimes it can be just that easy.
No McNuggets! Now What?
Put the McNuggets, fries, and soda down. Now calmly walk away.
See, we knew you could do it. Now that you’ve accomplish this first and vital step, let’s briefly show you how to delve into the world of juicing.
The first thing you need to do, obviously, is to make sure you have a juicer. No, a blender won’t do the trick. You need a machine specifically designed to extract all the rich nutrients from the veggies and fruits you’ll be tossing into that bad-boy. There are a lot of brands out there to choose from, but we usually hear good things about Champion. Just make sure to buy a high-quality juicer. This isn’t the kind of product you want to try and save money on.
Can I At Least Juice My McNuggets?
No you may not. But here’s a partial list of items to pick up at the grocery store when fasting on juice:
- Apples (add them to pretty much any recipe)
- Cucumber (make sure to remove the waxy outer layer)
- Spinach (so good for you!)
- Cilantro and other herbs
There are countless combinations of vegetables and fruits that you can toss into your juicer. Try picking up a recipe book at a local bookstore or mix together different combinations to see what works best for you.
Like we always say here at Juice Fast HQ, “Are you thirsty? Drink juice. Feeling hungry? Drink juice.” You don’t have to worry about overdoing it. This should make you smile to yourself when thinking about future juice fasts.
