Try Juicing To Lose Weight


By Deanne Shepard

When you want to get your body in shape quickly, safely, healthy and easy, you need to make sure to consume everything that it needs. It means that you get enough vitamins, minerals, fibers and other stuff needed for normal body functioning. If your previous attempts didn't get you anywhere, try juicing to lose weight and to improve your health at the same time.

Veggies and fruits should be consumed on regular basis, perfectly fresh. You will get so much more valuable stuff from fresh, uncooked kale and broccoli. Well, the problem is that they aren't very tasty this way. Some veggies, for example peppers and tomatoes, are great in salads, but when it comes to kale, no one would like to chew it twice a day.

Although fruits are also highly beneficial and full of vitamins and minerals, they also contain lots of sugar. Fructose is much better than sucrose, but it still rises the insulin level. For making tasty and powerful juices you should combine nutritionally valuable veggies and anti-oxidant rich fruits that will not only improve their taste, but also be highly beneficial for you.

When you choose vegetables, choose intensive colors. Dark green ones are especially valuable, but dark red, yellow and orange are great, too. So, make sure to include red peppers, full of vitamin C, kale and broccoli, spinach and carrots in your daily regime whenever you can. All these veggies are full of valuable phytonutrients and highly beneficial minerals.

Include beets in your juice. This amazing fruit has really great qualities. It is highly beneficial for your blood, supplying it with iron, for example. It lowers your blood pressure and cleanses your body, reduces swelling and inflammation and detoxifies. It has great effects on your libido and increases endurance. Besides, it has really lovely color and will improve the looks of your juices.

Vitamin and fiber rich carrots are great for your eyes, skin and hair. They have really pleasant taste, and will improve the taste of your juices. Combine them with cucumbers, apples and oranges, for example, and add some beet in this combination. Fruits such as grapefruit and pineapple speed up the process of losing weight.

Another great thing about juicing is that it detoxifies your body simply and easily. One day of juicing, with at least five glasses of juice and a few glasses of cold water is great, but it would be even better if you could stay on this diet for at least three days. Some experts say it should last for one week, but some people find it too exhausting.

One or two weeks of juicing is a perfect way for losing ten extra pounds. Being on diet is never easy, but this one really works, and has good effects on your health, as well as on your appearance. You don't have to count calories, if you are hungry, you can take another glass of fresh veggies and it's good for your skin.

If you are satisfied with your weight, and want to keep it, try juicing one day every week. This simple and effective way of detoxifying and cleansing your body will be very useful. Or you could replace your dinner with good quality organic vegetable juice.
