Juicing Recipes for Weightloss: Weight Loss Inspiration

Updated on March 20, 2014

Warning:

If you're thirsty, don't read this article!

Juices are a delicious way to lose weight!

There is no way you could eat an apple, two cucumbers, three oranges a lime and a pineapple in one day – at least not regularly. With juicing, however, this is different – you can make a juice out of these ingredients and drink it with close to no effort, and this is one of the reasons on why juicing for weight loss is such a powerful tool – you’ll be getting all the benefits of a diet full of fruits and vegetables with close to no effort.

You should calculate the caloric intake of the juices you drink and cut the rest of your meals accordingly – you’ll find yourself shifting your diet levels from mostly meat to fruits and vegetables, just as it should be.

Juicing Recipes for Weight Loss: Drink it off!

Let’s face it, you don’t eat as many vegetables and fruits as you should and you know that you’re skipping on a great amount of nutrients. In fact, whether you know it or not, fruits and vegetables have a lot of nutrients you don’t usually find in other food items – and that’s why it is so important to balance your diet with greenies and juicy fruits.

These ingredients we are talking about have a great deal of benefits, such as boosting your immune system, preventing colds and other diseases and hastening your metabolism if consumed regularly throughout the day. Vegetables and fruits have no cholesterol, which is also a plus.

There are many other benefits that we will discuss throughout this small article, but the rule of thumb about the juicing lifestyle is consuming more and more fruits and vegetables, while diminishing the consumption of other food items like red meat and fats.

Benefits of Juicing Recipes for Weight Loss:

Vitamins, nutrients and Phytovitamins – that’s what juices are full of!

These compounds and the juicing practice and lifestyle will enhance your life dramatically through their many benefits. For starters, fresh juice just crushes factory made juice that you can buy in groceries simply because the home made juice you make at home as its full nutritional values while the factory made juice has the nutrients capped – sometimes extremely capped or non-existent.

Juicing fruits and vegetables also gets them rid of a lot of fibers, which make nutrient absorption difficult, so you’ll be harvesting the full value of the juices – just make sure to eat lots of fiber too, as it is a key part of a balanced diet.

Of course, the extra benefit of juicing is getting you to stay hydrated at all times – since the water content is obviously high!

While it is pretty obvious that vegetables should also be juiced, there are a lot of people out there that think only of fruits when they think about juicing.

      Sounds very interesting and your pictures are great. I always believed in liquid diet specially fresh fruit extract/juice. But I still love my bread and cheese, of course. :)

      Good hub.
