Juicing for Weight Loss – Five Things Critical To Your Success


 

There are plenty of ways to successful weight loss but here are 5 one size fits all strategies for adding to your overall nutrition and weight loss plans so that it’s helpful, not dangerous.

 

Lots of Colors!Vegetable Colors

 

It’s a well known diet proverb that it’s important to get as many colors in your diet as possible when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Each ‘color’ is associated with a different benefit-for example, leafy green vegetables are high in iron while orange fruit is jammed with vitamin C. In order to get a wide range of nutrients from your juice, you have to make sure you use all different types of fruits and veggies, rotate them regularly and experiment! This will not only give you a nutritional kick, but it’ll also prevent boredom. Read more on vegetable and fruit colors and their nutrients

Juicing vs Blending - Which is better

Juicers liquefy fruits and vegetables just fine; however, they also remove all of the wonderful fiber found in these things (all that pulpy left-over in the juicer is all fiber). Fiber is very important for weight loss because it makes you stay full longer, it’s good for your digestive system and plays a vital role in health weight management. Instead, use a blender to make your juice. This way, all of the fiber stays intact and your juice becomes much healthier and easier to stay full on.

If you really want a juicer, then make sure to put the pulp back in your drink and stir it well or make dishes like quiche. This will give you your fiber back.

Juicing for weight lossDrink a Glass Before a Meal…

 

About twenty minutes before a meal, particularly one where you worry you’ll binge, try having a glass of your favorite fruit/veggie juice. It will help to curb your appetite while at the same time, giving you essential nutrients and vitamins.

 

 

Continue Eating Whole Fruits and Veggies

 

 

You may love your juice because you hate eating fruits and veggies, but here’s a newsflash: you should still be chomping down on apple slices, salads, and broccoli. The whole versions of the vegetables still have more nutrients than their juiced counterparts and they are easier on the digestive system, particularly veggies vs. dark green juices which should only be drunk in small quantities if you don’t want your digestive system go haywire.

Juicing for weight loss can be very beneficial as long as it is done correctly. Treat it as you would treat any other part of your diet-drink in moderation, have plenty of variety and don’t rely upon it to cure all of your problems-and it will become a fantastic part of your regime.
