I am always looking to eat a little healthier and lose a little weight here and there to keep my weight in check to keep up with my metabolism rate. However, I prefer to do it with a sustainable lifestyle that supports that effort instead of going on a drastic weight loss diet to get the results that I want but may not be sustainable in the long term. If you are like me, then you would be glad to know that juicing can be a great way to start your weight loss or weight maintenance journey.
Juicing can help you consume more raw fruits and vegetables that contain a lot more healthful digestive enzymes than when they are cooked. The beneficial digestive enzymes helps stimulate your liver and your digestive system to burn more fat and hence achieve natural weight loss over time as a result. Because the weight loss is achieved naturally by your body’s normal function, the weight loss is more permanent.
The fruits and vegetables used in this “Juicing for Weight Loss” recipe all have been known to help with weight loss. Grapefruit, for example, has been very popular with athletes such as ballet dancers where excellence in their craft is much dependent on the maintenance of their weight. In addition, dandelion, cucumber, and parsley have been shown to contain natural diuretic properties. Lettuce on the other hand, is extremely low in calories but eating a bunch of it still makes you feel full. A cup of lettuce only contains a mere 5 to 8 calories so they are really great weight loss pals because the number of calories you take in will definitely be lower than the number of calories you need to expend to digest the cabbage that you have just eaten. How perfect is that!
So try to “Juice for Weight Loss” today — you have everything to LOSE!
