Lose Weight By Juicing

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few years, you would have no doubt heard about the amazing-ness of juicing. But did you also know that a juice elixir can also be a healthy and safe way to lose weight? When drunk in complement to an existing weight loss plan, juicing provides a high level of quality nutrition which will assist in weight loss. Read on to find out how this secret weapon works its juicing magic!

 

  • Easy Digestion

One of the best benefits of juicing fresh fruit and vegetables is that drinking them (as opposed to eating them) makes them really easy for your body to digest. If you are to juice say a couple of tomatoes, celery, cucumber, spinach and carrot, you will make a delicious and easy to drink fresh vegetable cocktail that will provide a huge amount of nutritional benefits to your body.

If you were to actually consume those same vegetables raw, from a plate, in one sitting, you would find the process to be quite difficult. It would take a lot of effort to eat and digest the same quantity of food. But by juicing those vegetables, you get to drink in one glass a dense quantity of vitamins, minerals and nutrients really easily.

 

  • Reduction in Cravings

When you drink a glass of freshly made vegetable or green juice, you are loading every cell of your body with detoxifying minerals. By drinking your veggies and fruit, you are giving your body all the amazing nutrients that it needs to heal, stay healthy and reduce the risk of illness.

In turn, you will also find that you experience a reduction in cravings- particularly for sweets or processed foods. This is because you are feeding your body all that it needs. Your body won’t be sending messages to your brain that make you crave particular foods that contain certain minerals or vitamins that you might otherwise lacking.

It is in this way that you will start to lose weight, often quite quickly. You simply won’t be eating the bad foods that make you gain weight- and you won’t feel like you are even depriving yourself of these foods like you might if dieting.

 

  • Tasty Fuel

It is also handy to know that green juices taste great! You can make your juice really flavourful by adding in lemon, mint or ginger to really add a tasty punch to your juice. You will enjoy the flavours of the juice so much that you will choose to make a juice rather than eat another less healthy snack food.

It is also worth noting that juice you make at home on your own is a much better option than that which is store bought. Fresh juice made with a base of vegetables is going to contain much more nutrition than that which comes from a carton. Even fresh store bought juices will often have sugars and other additives as well as preservatives added to the juice. This kind of juice means you are drinking a lot of unnecessary calories. On the other hand, a home-made vegetable and fruit juice delivers nothing but goodness that is healthy fuel for your body.

 

  • Filling Snack or Dessert

Another amazing thing about juicing is that by drinking a freshly made juice, your appetite shuts off. This is because your body (which is amazing at knowing just what it needs!) is getting all that it is looking for. You will feel satisfied and satiated- much more than you would by eating empty calories in junk food. Your body will feel revitalized- not sluggish or heavy- and instead of searching for more food even after you have just eaten something, you will find that you don’t really want or need anything more.

 

  • It is not a fad diet

Once you start making juicing a regular part of your lifestyle, and start to experience all the health benefits and begin losing weight without a struggle, you will realise that incorporating fresh juicing into your life is definitely not a diet fad. Unlike regimented diets that are difficult to follow and which can often make you gain weight, juicing works in such a remarkable way that you will want to include juicing in your life forever.You don’t have to change anything about what you currently eat- just start adding a green juice in every day. Easy, right?

Unlike fad diets, you will never feel deprived, or hungry. No only that, but other aspects of your health will also improve. You might notice your skin is clearer, your eyes are brighter and your nails and hair grow more quickly. You will also have more energy and you will start to feel amazing. Juicing will seriously become a way of life you will want to follow forever!

 

  • You invest in your health

In order to start juicing regularly you will need to invest in a juicer, which initially will mean outlaying a bit of money. You might feel like this is an expense you don’t want to have, but by making that purchase, you are committing to your health and weight loss. It gives you a reason to stick to the concept of juicing for long enough that you will start to notice the difference in how you feel. It is also an investment in your health and well-being, so not only does juicing help you to lose weight but it will save you money in medical fees in the future.

 

  • Fun and Variety

In order to lose weight and to stay motivated, life needs to be fun, right? Juicing is the ideal way to bring this into your life. As you start to get into juicing, you will find it great fun making new combinations of fruit and vegetables cocktails. You will make all kinds of unique and interesting drinks and you will find that you never get bored from the endless variety of beverages that you can make for yourself and others. You will also want to share these drinks with others, which will also mean getting encouragement and support from those around you as you continue your weight loss goals. Support is super important when it comes to making, and sticking to, healthy changes in your life.

Really, juicing is a fabulously fun, easy and healthy way to shed those unwanted kilos without any struggle or deprivation. You have got nothing to lose by starting to make green juicing a regular part of your lifestyle. To get you started, here is a delicious and easy juice to kick-start your weight loss:
