    Question about juicing?

    I already eat fairly healthy and work out at least 3 or 4 times a week. I've incorporated fresh fruit and veggie juices,usually substituting them for breakfast and lunch, but during the 2 weeks or so I've been doing this I've somehow gained about 5 pounds? hmm Did anyone else have this happen to them, or know what might have happened/be happening?

    Just curious, can you confirm that your weight gain is due solely to the fresh fruits and vegetable juices? If so you might be drinking too much or in other words your portion size might be way beyond 4ounces per serving. You should be aware that fruits and vegetables contain starch or glucose, so if you consume too much of any of these, any excess amount of sugar/glucose will be converted and stored as fat.

    Hi! The only reason I can think of is that you're the calories your burning is lesser than the calories you're taking in. I've experienced this before and just made some adjustments to my diet and exercise.

    What kind of exercise are you doing? Keep it up but increase time or intensity to burn more fats. Your body may already be well-inclined with your current workout. It's time to go to the next level. >> … eight-Loss

    You don't have to substitute veggies and fruits for breakfast and lunch. Your body needs to feed so it can function well.

    Cut back on your carbs for a while. Continue your fresh juices. These are rich with antioxidants and nutrients that your body needs. >> … of-Juicing
