Juicing for Weight Loss – The Complete GuideReading time: 10 min

Juicing for weight loss has become more convenient than ever before. It is a great way to get a lot of nutrients, vitamins and minerals into your body. Don’t have time in the morning for breakfast? Make a quick juice that is low in calories before work and you can hit the ground running.

Bjorn Sydow expertly phrased it:

“Remember, when your body is hungry, it wants nutrients, not calories.”

We need more of the nutrients that healthy juice contains, and fewer empty calories.

The result? Weight loss that’s both gradual and sustainable. And the most exciting part: you’ll be feeling light on your feet without that feeling of being “weighed down.”

In this blog, we will look at the ins and outs of juicing for weight loss, and cover a 7-day juice plan to get you going.

Can You Lose Weight By Juicing?

Perhaps. Let’s elaborate – If you’re doing it right, it will help you drop pounds faster than you can get onto a scale. That depends on how quickly you get onto a scale, but you get the picture. It works well when you are doing it right.

Juicing for weight loss is ideal if you have already tried many other diets that only helped you lose your money and temper. Different from most diets, a juice diet only incorporates, you guessed it, juice. And that’s all folks – think of it as a juice fasting; no steak, no ice cream, not even a grain of salt. You will give up solid food for a day or three. It’s all about fresh fruit and veg in liquid form – tasty and healthy.

A juicing diet can also be done in many ways; you don’t have to force yourself to only consume fruit and vegetable juice. You can mix it into your daily diet if you are not eating the recommended daily dose of vegetables and fruits (and let’s be honest, who does these days?) You are best advised to consult your dietitian before committing to a weight loss cleanse with fresh juice, but in the end, your fruity journey, coupled with greens and fibre, will absolutely help to shed a few pounds.

7-Day Juice Plan

This 7-day weight loss juice plan will help you lose weight while enjoying nature’s fruity, sweeter side. Not only are these beverages packed with fruity goodness, but they are mixed with vegetables that complement each other.
